Heavenly Father, what an example Jonah is to all of us. Thank You that even when we are faithless You remain faithful. But I pray that I would be ready and willing to hear and obey Your call on my life, no matter how difficult or unusual it may be. Use me, I pray, to share the good news of the salvation, so that many who are dead in their sins may come to know Christ as Saviour and Lord - to Your greater praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.”
Source: Verse of the
day for Jonah 1:17
Loving Lord, I come to You to place the once great nation of United States of America at Your feet, knowing that our great country and its constitution was made for a moral and religious people and is wholly inadequate for any other form of government, and yet we have strayed so far from the principles and practices of our great founders – who drew up our constitution based on Your Word.
But Lord although this was once the land of the brave and the home of the free, sadly there is so much that is wrong with our country that I fear for its future. Lord as a people we have walked away from You and discredited Your holy name by the way that we have conducted ourselves over the past few years and there is no health in our land.
Look down in pity on our people and our land and protect us from those that seem determined on destroying our nation. Send Your Spirit I pray through the land of America and touch the hearts of all those that are called by Your name to plead on behalf our people. Convict those that are damaging our infrastructure and as a nation may we turn away from our wicked ways and return You to Your rightful position – in integrity and truth.
I ask this in Jesus name.
“So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.”

Loving Father, thank You that You are indeed full of compassion and mercy, for You stooped down to save me when I was dead in my sins and brought me into Your family – may my life be a true reflection of Your gracious character, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
“And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was
not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art
a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.”
