2 | Praying From The Belly Of The Fish (Jonah 2)

Darrell begins by reminding us of the overarching theme of this book - which is God’s deep love for the city of Nineveh, and Jonah’s struggle to accept that dimension of the God he is called to serve. Jonah flees in chapter one and is quickly reminded in chapter two, in the belly of a saving fish, that He cannot outrun God. For the bulk of this message, Darrell zooms in on the moments in the whale. He focuses on Jonah’s prayer - both what it reveals to us about the nature of God and what it shows us about how we can pray to Him.
