Jesus walked on a little way before he knelt down and prayed, "Father, if you will, please don't make me suffer by having me drink from this cup. But do what you want, and not what I want." Then an angel from heaven came to help him. Jesus was in great pain and prayed so sincerely that his sweat fell to the ground like drops of blood.
Luke 22: 41 - 44
The night before Jesus suffered and died on the Cross, an angel came from heaven to help Him. The Bible doesn’t say how the angel ministered to Jesus, and it doesn’t even tell us the name of the angel. Sometimes in the Bible we are told the name of an angel.
I suppose though that Jesus knew the angel. Jesus was God in the flesh and God created all of the angels, so Jesus must have known the angel who came. Perhaps the angel did nothing except be there with Jesus as He was in great pain. Sometimes the best way to help someone who is suffering is to quietly be with them at that difficult time.
Remember, you can take great comfort in the fact that Jesus promised to be with you, if you are His disciple, even to the end of the world! You will suffer and it will not be easy, but you will have the Savior Himself by your side as you walk through your time of trouble!
“Lord Jesus, I hope some day to meet the angel who helped You that night as You prayed. Thank You Lord that You have promised to be with me in my time of suffering. And may You, Jesus, be praised forever. Amen.”
