Matthew 26:36-46, NLT
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane
36Then Jesus went with them to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, “Sit here while I go over there to pray.”
39He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
40Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour?
42Then Jesus left them a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away*26:42 Greek If this cannot pass. unless I drink it, your will be done.”
44So he went to pray a third time, saying the same things again.
