Lazaroo – Sunday, December 16, 2012

Dec 16, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with burning emotion:

“But the LORD provided a great fish to swallow Jonah…”
(Jonah 1:17)

It’s hard to thank You for “provisions” like these, Jesus.

Jonah gets flung over the side of the boat

and gets eaten.

As a believer, he’s supposed to know enough to say:

“Thank You, LORD, for allowing me to be this fish’s lunch.”

Or: “I don’t understand this, LORD…but I trust You know what’s best.”

Or: “I had this coming for deliberately disobeying You, LORD.
Please give me the grace and courage to endure my punishment.”

Or: “I was about to drown in this sea, LORD!
Thank You for sparing my life!”

Or: “I’m terrified, LORD!
The belly of this fish stinks! –

but in spite of how bad this looks –
I believe You’re going to rescue me.

Or simply: “God help! Save me!”

Next time I get eaten…

Please help me remember a few of those lines.
