In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus knew what was coming, but He prayed to His Father anyway. Would God protect Him from an agonizing death on the cross?

Luke 22:42 says that Jesus prayed, "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me. Nevertheless not My will, but Yours be done." Jesus already knew the answer. To fulfill His mission, He had to be sent to the cross.

Most of us will not be faced with this type of decision in our lifetime. Nonetheless, Christian author and Pastor Jamie Buckingham says, we should always pray that God's will be done and not ours in everything."
