If we are arrested and taken away,
we should not worry beforehand what to say;
when the time comes, say what is given;
we shall not be the speakers, but the Holy Spirit.
Jesus asked in the garden that the cup might pass from him;
Jesus drank the cup and walked the way of the cross.
Gospel Reading - Love one another
31 As soon as Judas left the room, Jesus said, "My time has come; the glory of God will soon surround me - and God shall receive great praise because of all that happens to me. 32 And God shall give me his own glory, and this so very soon. 33 Dear, dear children, how brief are these moments before I must go away and leave you! Then, though you search for me, you cannot come to me - just as I told the Jewish leaders.
34 "And so I am giving a new commandment to you now - love each other just as much as I love you. 35 Your strong love for each other will prove to the world that you are my disciples.". . . . .John 13:31-35
In the heavenly kingdom,
the blessèd have their dwelling place;
and their rest for ever and ever.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
