The last words of Jesus were: "God, Why have you forsaken me?"
In my mind to ask such a thing is a huge lack of faith, but if he was really the son of God, why would he have said this? I'm sure he would have known what was going to happen, he would have know he was sent here to die for our sins... So why the lack here? Or was it just weakness?

He didn't have a lack of faith. God was unable to look upon him at the time he had taken on all the sin of all mankind. At this point, God had to look away. I always believed this to be Jesus thinking that God (his father) would keep his eyes on him, but that couldn't be. Jesus completed the task at hand with no faltering at all. If there was any, it was in the desert when he asked God to take the task from him, but he emerged strong and determined. He didn't have a lack of faith. You have to have faith to understand the reaction he had to God averting his eyes at the time Jesus was all sin which is the height of Jesus' passion. He endured God's wrath so that we could be saved through faith instead of works. I will NEVER question his faith or his actions.

Jesus wasn't showing a lack of faith he was referencing Psalm 22. ""My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" is the opening of that psalm and all the Jews present at the Crucifixion would have recognized that. Psalm 22 is a foreshadowing of Christ's crucifixion.
Here's an article on Psalm 22 that points out the foreshadowing.
