The Loneliest Night

Lord Jesus, we remember

Your loneliest of nights—

one friend, a traitor;

the others asleep

when at last the hour came.

We remember

how You prayed alone—

the sweat dripping like blood,

your lips pleading to be spared,

Your purpose muddled with emotions.

We remember

Your bravery—

staring into unknown darkness,

human instincts crashing down on You,

giving Yourself to the Father’s will.

We remember

how You rose from prayer,

heavy-hearted,

yet strengthened—

committed to the cross.

We remember, Lord Jesus,

and we thank You. ❤️
