Have you ever felt that your soul was fainting within you, and all hope was lost? Jonah was intimately acquainted with these emotions as he sat in the belly of the fish. But he didn’t give up—even at his lowest point! He turned to God and found mercy and salvation in God alone. Jonah’s prayer teaches us valuable lessons about rejecting false ideals and worthless lies, the sacrifice of obedience, receiving mercy with gratitude, and about the power and sovereignty of God.
