42 Again, a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cup can’t pass away from me unless I drink it, your desire be done.” (WEB)
These two verses are part of the same episode. Jesus is praying to be excused from dying on the Cross. Understandably? Or not -- He was God, after all! But the bottom line is that He wanted to do the right thing, and we are all, potentially, at least, infinitely better off for that act of obedience. Thank You for doing what You didn't want to do!
