On the ground as we pray

Fitting, in this moment of anguish
Christ falling to his knees
throwing himself to the ground
as he began to pray

On the ground as we pray
humbly, bowing before God
at the rail, at the foot of the cross
aware of some of the price
the cost of our salvation

Coming before God
in praise, in thanksgiving
in supplication
away coming before God
on the ground as we pray

Fervently needing
the grace, the presence
the loving hand of God
all the days of our life
each of us unworthy
all with feet of clay

“When you think of Jesus' agony in the Garden of Gethsemane –
Matthew says he was overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death –
and that he threw himself on the ground as he began to pray –
how has this passage brought help or comfort to you?”
Matthew 26:17-30;
Mark 14:12-25;
Luke 22:7-20.
Luke 22:39-46
Matthew 26:35-45
Matthew 26:39
“And he went a little further, and fell on his face,
and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will,
but as thou wilt”. (KJV)
