In today’s video, we shared from Jonah 2:2-9
“In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help,
and you listened to my cry.
3 You hurled me into the depths,
into the very heart of the seas,
and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers
swept over me.
4 I said, ‘I have been banished
from your sight;
yet I will look again
toward your holy temple.’
5 The engulfing waters threatened me,
the deep surrounded me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
6 To the roots of the mountains I sank down;
the earth beneath barred me in forever.
But you, Lord my God,
brought my life up from the pit.
7 “When my life was ebbing away,
I remembered you, Lord,
and my prayer rose to you,
to your holy temple.
8 “Those who cling to worthless idols
turn away from God’s love for them.
9 But I, with shouts of grateful praise,
will sacrifice to you.
What I have vowed I will make good.
I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”
We also shared the breath prayer, “You are with me,” which is based on the following verses:
Exodus 33:14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Isaiah 43:1-7 Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you…Do not be afraid, for I am with you.
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
Matthew 28:20 Behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
All is well,
Jim and Lisa
