It must have been exhausting! All day Tuesday, on the last week of the Lord’s life, He faced a series of ugly conflicts with the religious leaders of Jerusalem. (Read Luke 20) At the end of the day, He gave the Olivet Discourse predicting the destruction of Jerusalem and the Coming of the Son of Man. His last word to the disciples was, “Keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things. . .and stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:36) Jesus KNEW that the only way to survive and serve in the days that were coming was to PRAY. How true this still is! Like the Lord, we stand in the collision between two worlds, two systems. Even when our Spirit is willing, our flesh will be too weak apart from prayer. God Bless you, friend, for your devotion to the Lord. I am praying with you today, so are thousands of others!
