Teacher: Daniel Smith. We’re in week two of our Jonah series, and we explore the theme of repentance and restoration through the story of Jonah 2. Jonah's journey from running away to a desperate prayer in the belly of the fish reveals important lessons:

🙏 Point 1: God Listens to Desperate Prayers

  • Jonah 2:3-6
  • Whether it's our own doing or circumstances beyond our control, God hears and responds to the cries of desperate people.

🤲 Point 2: God Saves Those Who Call on Him

  • Jonah 2:2,7-9; Jonah 1:5; Psalm 34:6; Romans 10:13
  • We often turn to various sources for salvation, but Jonah's story shows the futility of relying on idols.

🔄 Point 3: Turning to God Means Turning from Sin

  • Jonah 2:9
  • Repentance involves leaving our own ways and following God's path, even if we find ourselves in dire situations.

🔄 Point 4: Our God Offers Second Chances

  • Jonah 2:10, 3:1-3
  • Just like Jonah's second chance, God's faithfulness remains unwavering, and He can use us for His purpose.

Watch this video to dive deeper into the remarkable lessons from Jonah's journey, reminding us of the power of desperate prayer and God's unchanging character. 🐋🙌 #Repentance #Restoration #Prayer #SecondChances
