Brethren, let’s look at the book of Jonah. God sent him a message of mercy to the people of Nineveh but because Jonah wanted God’s anger and judgement upon Nineveh which was contrary to God’s plan, he decided to go to the opposite direction. Most times we try to take the place of judgement which belongs to God but God want us to intercede. In Jonah 1:9 And he said unto them, I am a Hebrew and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land. Verse 10 – Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.
As long as Jonah remains in the ship the bible says that the storm was getting worse and they now asked him the solution and he replied and said throw me into the sea which was a surprise response to the sailors. Although the sailors did not know the God of Jonah, they did something shocking and what was that? Instead of picking up Jonah and threw him into the sea as he has commanded them but they did the opposite. They prayed for what they were going to do first. Verse 14 Then they cried out to the Lord, Jonah’s God. O Lord, they pleaded, don’t make us die for this man’s sin and don’t hold us responsible for his death. O Lord, You have sent this storm upon him for Your own good reasons.
Afterwards, they picked up Jonah and threw him into the sea.
Things to take note of:
- The sailors threw away their belongings they have worked for
- Someone walked into their life that made them to loose their goods
- The sea was no more convenient for them to sail through.
Our prayers from this night will circle around these. Please, for you to take this very seriously study the book of Jonah. We will pray the same prayers by God’s grace at 12 midnight this night, 6am tomorrow morning, 12 midday tomorrow and 6pm tomorrow. By God’s grace the prayers for tomorrow night to next tomorrow will be sent tomorrow. Before you start the prayers, please, praise and worship the King of Kings first.
