32They went to a place called Gethsemane; and he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33He took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be distressed and agitated. 34And he said to them, “I am deeply grieved, even to death; remain here, and keep awake.” 35And going a little farther, he threw himself on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36He said, “Abba, Father, for you all things are possible; remove this cup from me; yet, not what I want, but what you want.” 37He came and found them sleeping; and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep awake one hour? 38Keep awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 39And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. 40And once more he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to say to him. 41He came a third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Enough! The hour has come; the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42Get up, let us be going. See, my betrayer is at hand.” (Mark 14:32-42, NRSV)
Have you ever fallen asleep while praying? I have. I have been in such a state of sheer peace that my ramblings to God became snores of praise. And while Jesus was not happy with Peter here, I would think that God would be moved to cradle us in arms of love when that happens.
I have also been intently in pray and would not be able to sleep, for the adrenaline was flowing through the power of the connection with God and others I was praying with and for,
Prayer is a communication with God and there is no right or wrong way to do, the only thing that God asks is that we do it.
Be in prayer. Communicate with God.
