I then viewed Jesus in the garden with his disciples. In deep sorrow he bade them watch
and pray lest they should enter into temptation. Jesus knew that their faith was to be tried, and their
hopes disappointed, and that they would need all the strength they could obtain by close watching
and fervent prayer. With strong cries and weeping, Jesus prayed, Father, if thou be willing, remove
this cup from me, nevertheless, not my will, but thine be done. The Son of God prayed in agony.
Large drops of sweat like blood came out of his face, and fell upon the ground. Angels were
hovering over the place, witnessing the scene, while only one was commissioned to go and
strengthen the Son of God in his agony. The angels in heaven cast their crowns and harps from
