Jonah’s Prayer 2:2-10
(A Modern Day Interpretation)
Deep in a world of sin and decay, we call upon the Lord for mercy. We may have done something wrong or might have been disobedient.
:2 “I need you Lord. I’ve called on you before and you heard my cry and answered my call. I’m calling on you Lord. Hear me.”
:3 “You put me here in this world, to do a job for you. You let me stumble and fall to the lowest low. Trouble is all around me. Bills, pain, suffering and despair. Lord, it looks bad.”
:4 I said, “Lord, where are you? Do you hear me? I’ve really done it this time. I can’t seem to feel you Lord. Will I ever be in your good graces again?”
:5 “Where are you Lord? I can’t get out of this rut I’m in. I’m being smothered Lord. I can’t see my way. I can’t get out of the situation I’m in. Lord, you know I’ve tried.”
:6 “I tried to end it all. I couldn’t take it (life) any more, but that wasn’t your plan. You wouldn’t let me end my life.”
:7 “At that very moment, when I felt my life slipping away, I prayed to you. I asked your forgiveness. I requested your help, and from your throne, you heard me.”
:8 “Lord, I know that those persons, who don’t look to you for help in their time of need, look to a false god. They have cut their own throats. They that look to other gods than you, and do not adhere to your Word; give-up their grace from you.”
:9 “But from now on, I’ll do right Lord. I’ll do what I’ve promised you I’d do. I’ll fast, I’ll Pray, I’ll go, when and where you tell me to go. No ifs, ands or buts. You are my only hope. Others can do what they will Lord, but I will trust in you.”
:10 God gave His command and Satan had to step back. It’s up to us as to what we do with an order from God. Do we give up when we make a mistake, and throw in the towel? Why not ask for God’s forgiveness and press-on?
