The Savior prayed to the Father "nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done." His purpose for coming here, the atonement, was upon him, and he drank that bitter cup so that we might live with him again. His agony was so great that he went beyond what mortal man is able to endure.
Love was the reason for this. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"
The Savior was obedient in all things that were asked of him, and because of that, we can return and live with him and our Father in Heaven again. The Lord doesn't ask us to go through what the Savior went through, just wants us to be obedient to his commandments, and turn to him in our trials. May we remember the sacrifice of the Savior, and as we pray to our Father in Heaven in gratitude for the Savior's sacrifice, may we feel of his love for us.
And when we have trials that we must endure, may we not revile, but turn to God, as the Savior did, and humbly say "not my will, but thine be done." If we do, we will be exalted on high.
