Covered in Grief and Anguish

Like a thick heavy blanket
heavy resting upon him
covered in grief and sorrow
Christ praying in the garden
strength to carry on

First praying that the cup
the suffering would pass him by
but praying that God’s will would be done
that he would remain faithful to our master
completing his work, prophecy

Heavy, repeating, his plea for another way
but also his prayer for strength
to follow God’s plan for his life
even the suffering, the sorrow
that leads to new life for us
