Jesus Stories

Jesus Prays in the Garden

Judas left dinner early.

He was the one to betray Jesus.

He went to tell where Jesus' enemies could find him.

Jesus and his apostles went to the Garden.

Jesus needed to pray.

 "Wait here," Jesus said to them.

Jesus prayed to Our Father, "I will do as You wish."

Jesus walked back to his apostles.

They were asleep.

Jesus asked them, "Couldn't you stay awake for an hour?"

Jesus left and went back to pray.

A second time Jesus returned to his apostles.

They were asleep again.

Jesus asked them, "Why aren't you praying?"

He went back to pray.

A third time Jesus returned to his apostles.

They were asleep.

Jesus said to them, "My enemies have come for me."

Oh, my, how sad.

What do you think?

Did you know it was Judas who would betray Jesus?

Would you have fallen asleep waiting for Jesus?

Would you have been afraid when Jesus said his enemies were there?

Write and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.


Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for sending Jesus for us.
Help me to never betray my parents.
Help me to never betray my friends.
Help me to always help my friends and family.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord
Amen.

Can you think of a better prayer?
