Jonah’s Prayer

Jonah was facing a tough situation. He was in the stomach of a very big fish! What did Jonah do? He prayed.
Verse 7 of our Bible Reading tells us what Jonah prayed. “My soul gave up all hope, but then I remembered the Lord. I prayed to you, and you heard my prayers in your holy Temple.” Jonah continued praying and telling God that he would sacrifice to Him, praise Him and thank Him. God listened to Jonah’s prayer and rescued him.
I have faced tough situations, too. And I have learned that if I pray, God will help me. One time I was locked out of my truck. So I prayed and asked God to help me. When I finished praying, I decided to try a different key. The key fit in the lock and opened the door. At that moment, I realized God’s power!
Maybe you are facing tough situations today. Don’t depend on things in the world. Be like Jonah and depend on God.
