The Angel in the Garden

The evening before his crucifixion Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane. He had taken Peter, James, and John with Him to provide encouragement, but instead they fell asleep. The Son of man was all alone as he prayed, "Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done. " (Luke 22:42) In his book, Angels, by Billy Graham, we learn that "at that crucial moment an angel came to assist Him. The Greek word for strengthening is eniskuo, which means to make strong inwardly."

May you feel the presence of your angels comforting you always.
