Jesus Prays for a Way Out  (Short Sketch)

When he had finished praying Jesus left with his disciples and crossed to the Kidron Valley. They came to an olive grove, a place called Gethsemane.

Jesus: Sit here and rest in the grove while I take some time to pray. James, John, Peter - will you come with me?

Peter: Anywhere Lord.

Jesus: Just a few steps further into the trees, Peter. That’s far enough for now.

John: You look troubled, Lord.

Jesus: I am, John, my soul feels so heavy. My spirit is torn inside, full of sorrow and terrible pain. Awful. I feel like dying. I can barely speak… Stay here, let me have some time alone.

Going a little further into the garden he fell to the ground and pushed his face into the dirt. He pressed his fingers deep into the soil and tore handfuls from the ground in his clenched fists.

Jesus: Father… Oh Father… Please help me. The weight of this is too much for me. I’m not sure if I can go through with it. Please, Father, help me. If there’s any other way at all, any other way, then let it be. Can you take this cup from me? Can you?
