In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus told His disciples to pray lest they fall into temptation. But why prayer? Scripture assures us that God will protect us from temptation and unbelief; Alistair Begg clarifies, however, that God uses His chosen means of prayer, worship, and fellowship to keep us in the faith. Prayer and faith may not keep us from great sorrow here on earth—but Jesus promises us an eternity that will undo all the suffering.
39And he came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him.
