God saves Jonah
(from Jonah chapter 1 verse 17

 to chapter 2 verse 10)





When the sailors threw Jonah out of the ship

God did not let him die.

God made a big fish swallow Jonah.

Jonah was inside the big fish for three days.

He prayed to God.  He said,


“I was very upset.  I was very unhappy.

I called to the Lord.  I asked him for help.

The Lord heard me and he spoke to me.


Lord you were very cross with me.

I did not do the things you asked me to do.

I ran away from you.

I was very sad.  I was afraid.  I was dying.


Then I thought of you Lord.

I called to you.

You heard me.  You came to me.

You made me safe.  You made me happy again.


I will thank you for ever.

I will sing praises.

You will always be my Lord.”





Then God told the fish to open its mouth.

The fish let Jonah out.

Jonah landed on dry ground.
