holy week

At Maundy Thursday liturgy we eat together, we hear Scripture read, we pray, we serve each other communion, we take communion, we reflect, and we sang:

Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter’s power;
Your Redeemer’s conflict see,
watch with Him one bitter hour,
Turn not from His griefs away;
learn of Jesus Christ to pray.
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

And I remembered that Jesus must have felt so, so alone that night.  Jesus, teach me to pray.
