As we continue our series in the book of Jonah, we now come to chapter 2, looking at verses 1-4. In these verses we have recorded the prayer of thanks for the prayer of repentance (in water) not recorded in the passage (but he explains in the recorded prayer). The prayer of thanks is recorded here in chapter 2 and is the prayer from the sea creature’s belly. How long was Jonah in the water before he was swallowed by the great fish? Long enough, I believe, to pray a prayer of repentance to the Lord in the water. That is the prayer he talks about in verses 2-7.
