Jonah 2:7 -- On the Fish of Remembrance

"When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple."
Jonah 2:7

This is part of a prayer that Jonah was praying to God while he was actually inside the big fish that swallowed him.  ... Talk about desperate situations.  And when it was bad, Jonah remembered the Lord, and the Lord heard him, and helped him.

Hopefully none of us are going through what Jonah went through. ;)  We do, however, have our own trials and challenges to face, and when things get bad, we can also turn to God.  No matter how bad things are, God is always just a prayer away.

It's sad, really, that we so often wait until things are desperate to call upon God, or to take his advice. Today let's try remembering the Lord before having to get swallowed first. :)  Let's pray, and trust in God's deliverance.
