God saves Jonah
to chapter 2 verse 10)
When the sailors threw Jonah out of the ship
God did not let him die.
God made a big fish swallow Jonah.
Jonah was inside the big fish for three days.
He prayed to God. He said,
“I was very upset. I was very unhappy.
I called to the Lord. I asked him for help.
The Lord heard me and he spoke to me.
Lord you were very cross with me.
I did not do the things you asked me to do.
I ran away from you.
I was very sad. I was afraid. I was dying.
Then I thought of you Lord.
I called to you.
You heard me. You came to me.
You made me safe. You made me happy again.
I will thank you for ever.
I will sing praises.
You will always be my Lord.”
Then God told the fish to open its mouth.
The fish let Jonah out.
Jonah landed on dry ground.
