Our Founder points out this memory in which we find the model of Dehonian prayer: “…Jesus, especially in the garden of olives, where he prays in solitude and recollection. Jesus prays with respect: He was heard because of his piety (Heb 5:7); he prays with ardour: With loud cries (Heb 5:7); he prays with emotion, with tears, with compunction: My Father,… not as I will, but as you will! (Mt 26:39). Pray with perseverance. In Gethsemane he began the same prayer three times” (DSP 122).
