-There's no situation that's beyond God
1. Jonah prayed a desperate prayer.
- God prepared a fish to swallow Jonah
- He did the only thing that was there to do. He prayed a prayer. He knew that God is a God of Mercy and He cried out to God. He prayed a prayer of desperation.
- Even though you feel like it's over you can always cry out to God.
- God kept him alive to bring him to a point of repentance.
- He has kept you alive under normal circumstances you could have been finished. You have survived so much. He has kept you alive because he wants to answer your prayers.
- We are living in a time of desperate situation.
- God heard Jonah's prayer from the belly of the fish.
A) God heard a prayer of a rebellious prophet.
B ) God heard the Prayer from the belly of the fish. There's no place that God can't hear you.He can hear your prayers anywhere.He is present everywhere.
- Hezekiah prayed a desperate prayer.
- Refuse that situation,you deserve better.
- Hannah prayed a desperate prayer.It was a prayer out of her humiliation.
C ) God answered Jonah's prayer. He commanded the fish to vomit him. No Prayer is too hard for God to answer. 
God is in control of everything.

- God controlled the furnace for the Hebrew boys.
How do I know that you are swallowed?
- When you swallowed you are restricted
-You are rejected
- You stagnate, no progress in life
- Nothing new ever happens to you because you are restricted.Until you are vomited you remain where are.
- Jonah prayed a powerful prayer because it was answered.

Christian Professionals Sunday

By Dr. Kalasa Mwanda:

The Role of a Christian Professional in Building the Lord’s Tabernacle.
A professional is a person who is engaged or qualified in a profession.
Professionals in the bible:
A. The Apostle Paul wrote 13 books of the bible: Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Timothy, Titus, Corinthians, Thessalonians etc.
B. Luke, the Evangelist, a disciple of Paul. Fathers of the early church ascribed to him authorship of 2 voluminous books of the New Testament: Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles – accounting for 27% of text in the New Testament
Did God choose these professionals because of their skill or they got skilled because they were chosen.
GOD DOES NOT CALL THE QUALIFIED HE QUALIFIES THE CALLED.
1 Corthians1:27-29, Jeremiah 1:5

Benefits of building the Lords Tabernacle as a professional:
Exodus 23:25-28
-He will bless our bread and water
-He will take away sickness from our midst
-There will be no miscarriage
-There will be no barrenness
