Alone


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. (Matthew 26:39 KJV)

***

What a heartfelt situation
When you fell on your knees
For the sake of ingrates
Tears spilled down your cheeks
Your sweat stream down
And was likened to blood

***

For that prayer, then you knew
You understood the extent,
The love and mercy
For which you left your throne
Alone, in the garden
You understood humanity

***

My Lord and Saviour
In persistent prayer
As you persevered with the King
So did you show an example
For I wish to always be alone
Alone with you in persistent prayer
