“He Himself Also Knelt Upon the Earth and Behold He Prayed Unto the Father”

Brant Gardner

Jesus begins to pray. All that is recorded of this prayer is that Jesus begins with a personal lamentation for Israel. This concern would have been present on his mind following the topic of discussion with the twelve. What might he have said in this prayer? Of course we cannot know. With this beginning and the connection to the most recent subject, one possibility is that Jesus prayed and disclosed a detailed future history of Israel.
