Remain here, and watch with me

At New Evangelizers, I'm continuing a short series of meditations on the rosary in light of 40 Days for Life. In Take Up Your Cross, Parents, I consider these verses:
Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane. And he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, "My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me." (Mt 26:36-38)
and
And he came back to his disciples and found them sleeping; and he said to Peter, "So, could you not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." (Mt 26:40-41)
