Jonah’s Prayer
(Jonah chapter 2 verses 2 to 9)



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.
