The Saviour's Life on earth was a Life of Prayer. Many were the hours He spent alone with God. Often did He send up His Earnest Petitions to His Heavenly Father. Thus He received Strength and Wisdom to Sustain Him in His Work, and to Keep Him from falling under the temptations of Satan. {SJ 101.1}

After eating the Passover supper with His disciples, Jesus went with them to the garden of Gethsemane, where He often went to pray. As He walked, He talked with them, and taught them; but as they neared the garden, He became strangely silent. {SJ 101.2}

All His Life, Jesus had Lived in the Presence of His Father. The Spirit of God had been His Constant Guide and Support. He always gave God the Glory for His Works on earth, and said, "I can of Mine Own Self do nothing." John 5:30. {SJ 101.3}

We can do nothing of ourselves. It is only by relying on Christ for all our strength that we can overcome, and do His Will on earth.
