Jonah 2: 1 From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. Jonah - The fish was his salvation. The Fish was the grace of God! The Fish was provided by the Lord...it was not punishment! WE CAN GET A BAD ATTITUDE WHEN THINGS DON’T GO OUR WAY, but God may be using them to develop us! How many know we are all a work in progress and we all need development! Jonah prays in the belly of the fish! When you are in a place where you can’t do anything When you are in a place where you can’t fix it When you are in a place where you feel confined and restricted... PRAY! What Did Jonah do...Jonah Prayed and God answered! 1. Pray with PASSION! 2. Pray with Purpose! 3. Take the position of Praise!
