40 Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping. He asked Peter, “So, couldn’t you[a] stay awake with Me one hour? 41 Stay awake and pray, so that you won’t enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

42 Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, “My Father, if this[b] cannot pass[c] unless I drink it, Your will be done.”
