In anguish of spirit he threw himself with his face upon the earth and poured out those broken/ heart-rending cries/ which none but God can fully understand.

    Jesus fell prostrate upon the ground. He felt that by sin He was being separated from His Father. The gulf was so broad, so black, so deep, that His spirit shuddered before it. This agony He must not exert His divine power to escape. As man, He must suffer the consequences of man's sin. As man, He must endure the wrath of God against transgression. "O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will/ but as thou wilt."
