- When God wants you to do something don't run away.
- God couldn't denial Jonah's prayer
-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 shut the mouth of Lions concerning Daniel
- 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.
