Prayer for Matthew 12:40

“For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.”

Heavenly Father, how we praise that thank You for the sign of Jonah, which not only prefigured the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, but has given all who believe on the Him a blessed hope - knowing that because He rose to life immortal, we too will rise to newness of life. We pray for lost souls who doubt Your word and ask that in Your grace You would convict many of their need of Christ, and open their blinded eyes, before it is too late, so they too may come to a knowledge of the truth - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
