Welcome to Prayer Station Number Two
This was the darkest moment: his pleading with God that there might be another way. He knelt down on the cold ground and wept like a child; …….. the words that he had said about walking second miles and turning other cheeks and giving enemies a drink, they were now focused into these moments of foreboding, for now he had to prepare himself to do what he had said.
It had always been waiting for him. From the moment he had gone down into the waters, and John had said, ‘Look, here is the Lamb of God’, this day had been coming. He didn’t quite know how it would work out, or how it would end, but this much was clear: he had to take this cup and drain it to the dregs.
