couldn't you watch for 1 hour?

Matthew 26

v40 & 41

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed [is] willing, but the flesh [is] weak.

We shouldn't give in to temptation to "sleep" when we're supposed to be praying, or to other weaknesses like that. Sometimes we have to force our bodies to do what's right, like getting up in the morning when we feel like sleeping half of the day. We should bring our flesh (our physical bodies) under subjection to the Lord's Spirit.
