Mat 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.
There is an interesting play on the word “Prayer”. It denotes both, the form of communication required to God and the person who is the “Prayer”. In the above verse, we see Jesus the Son of Man possibly prostrate on the ground before His Father praying to conquer the final frontier; death. This moment would decide whether all that Jesus had come to the earth for, could be achieved. The miracles, signs and wonders, the teaching He brought and the hope He gave people was now dependant on His own willingness to go the final step; which was, to accept the will of His Father in heaven. If He did not go to the cross, all this would have been in vain.
