Scripture Reading: Jonah 2:1, 10
Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
Reflections: Jonah found himself in the belly of a very big fish. He got swallowed up by this fish when he was thrown into the sea based on his own request. He got himself in this predicament all because he tried to run away from his divine assignment. Life in the belly of a fish was certainly not pleasant. Besides the environment was such that one would have concluded that it was impossible and perhaps not needful to pray. But Jonah prayed alright. The environment and condition could not stop him from doing so. He prayed till God responded by commanding the fish to vomit him out. His prayer of repentance therefore transcended the belly of the fish to reach God. Like Jonah, no condition should ever have the power to stop you from praying. Pray no matter where ( location) and no matter what ( condition)! The merciful God will come through for you!
Prayer: Oh Lord, grant me the grace to pray no matter where and no matter what.
Confession: I will pray no matter where and no matter what!
