And he withdrew from them

about a stone's throw, and kneeled down,
and prayed, saying,

remove this cup from me:
nevertheless not my will,

but thine, be done."
Agony in the Garden - Our Lady of Hope - Potomac Falls, Virginia
And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven,
strengthening him.
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly:
and his sweat was

as it were great drops of blood
falling down to the ground.
And when he rose up from prayer,

and was come to his disciples,
he found them sleeping for sorrow...

Luke 22:41-45
