"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in my name, I am there in their midst." - Jesus, Matthew 18:19-20

GOD'S CALLING, TRIALS & PERSECUTION - JONAH - A PRAYER FOR YOU
PRAYER HOUSE BELIEVES THE LORD JESUS WOULD HAVE ALL CHRISTIANS PRAY FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE FAITH THAT ARE NOW SUFFERING PERSECUTION IN THE WORLD.
PRAYER HOUSE RECOMMENDS THE MOVIE, "GOD IS NOT DEAD."
OUR LOCALS SUFFER PERSECUTION AS WELL.
YOU, AS STANDERS ARE ALSO GOING THROUGH THE FIERY TRIAL WITH YOUR SPOUSE PERHAPS BECAUSE OF YOUR CHRISTIAN FAITH.
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, - 2 TIMOTHY 3:12
"Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.
But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven. - MATTHEW 10:32-33
JONAH'S CALLING FROM GOD:
The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: - JONAH 1:1
"Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me." - JONAH 1:2
JONAH RUNS FROM GOD AND FROM HIS CALLING:
But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD. - JONAH 1:3
JONAH IS SWALLOWED BY A GREAT FISH AND IS PRAYING INSIDE THE FISH'S BELLY
"When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple." JONAH 2:7
"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."
- JONAH 2:9
GOD SAVES JONAH AND THE REST IS HISTORY!
And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land. - JONAH 2:10
Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. - JONAH 3:3
OUR FATHER, IF WE ARE YOURS, YOU CALLED US TO PREACH AGAINST SIN. MAY WE NOT RUN AWAY FROM THIS CALLING NOR TRY TO FLEE FROM YOU, IT DOESN'T BENEFIT ANYBODY AND WE DON'T WANT TO BE SWALLOWED BY TROUBLE. MAY WE REMEMBER YOU, LORD, AND PRAY WITH SHOUTS OF GRATEFUL PRAISE AND SAY SALVATION COMES FROM YOU! MAY WE OBEY YOU AND GO WHERE YOU SENT US TO DO YOUR WILL. IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
