What is your prayer life like? Do you ever wonder if you are praying properly? As we continue to look at Jonah’s prayer in Jonah 2:5-6, we learn some more lessons today about how to pray, and how not to pray.
The Text of Jonah 2:5-6
The waters surrounded me, even to my soul; the deep closed around me; Weeds were wrapped around my head.
I went down to the moorings of the mountains; The earth with its bars closed behind me forever; Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O Lord, my God.
In this discussion of Jonah 2:5-6 we look at:
- Why Jonah 2:5-6 are a repeat of Jonah 2:2-3
- How Jonah 2:5-6 point the reader to Genesis 1
- Why Jonah’s prayer is not a model prayer
- Some lessons on how (and how not) to pray
