The Spirit Is Willing,
but the Flesh is Weak.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus commanded the disciples, “Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41). As Jesus cried out to his Father in prayer, the disciples couldn’t stay alert to anything but their physical needs. How often do we miss what God is doing because we’re distracted by the wrong things?

Let’s strip away distractions and seek the Lord in prayer just as Jesus did.

Fasting is an opportunity to focus our lives and get hungry (literally.) It’s so easy to overcrowd our time and minds, leaving us full of all the wrong things. Prayer is a means of filling yourself up with God. We silence the noise and distraction to foster alertness to and awareness of the presence of God.
