Feelin Stressed? Pray Like Jonah
I've been thinking about some of my friends who are in Jonah-times right now. They feel like they're in the depth of somewhere; overcome by something. In his dire straits, this is what Jonah prayed, "In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry...The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head...But you brought my life up from the pit, O LORD my God. When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple."
Let's pray THRU our stress and you better believe that our prayers are gonna rise to God--who WILL bring us out of it.
