And Jesus said.... (Luke 22:40)

"Pray that you will not be overcome by temptation.” Luke 22:40

Jesus asked the disciples to pray that they would not fall into temptation because he knew that they would need extra strength to face the temptations ahead – temptations to run away or to deny their relationship with him. They were about to see Jesus die. Would they still think he was the Messiah? The disciples’ strongest temptation would undoubtedly be to think they had been deceived.
