Jesus’ Favorite Prayer Spot

The evangelists occasionally show us Jesus getting away from it all, finding a spot to commune with his Father. On the night before he died, he crossed the Kidron Valley to pray, to agonize with his Father. “Ah, Gethsemani, my favorite garden! Thank you for the rest and calm you’ve given me after hot afternoons of teaching or disputatious hours  with leaders. This is the last night I will seek your olive trees that have known the crush of the press as I will soon know. I will miss you. But I need you now. I cling to you. Support me, as I pray, “Abba! Abba!”
