Today's Text: Jonah 2:7

Text: Jonah 2:7

Happy Sunday, sisters!

As you know, we believe that memorizing scripture is one of the best ways to carry the Word of our God with us wherever we go – to have God-breathed truth and instruction and reproof in our hearts and minds as we live unto Him each day.

For our Weekly Truth today, we’ve chosen Jonah 2:7, a portion of Jonah’s repentant prayer in the belly of the fish:

When my life was fainting away,
I remembered the Lord,
and my prayer came to you,
into your holy temple.
– Jonah 2:7, ESV

Write it down – copy it twenty times if that helps! Pray it. Save an image of this verse to your phone’s lockscreen.

We want to be a community that is intentional about Scripture memorization. Join us?

  • I love all of you guys so much. Praise God, that He brings us all here. That no matter who I am or what I do, He is the God who pursues me despite myself– and He hears my cry, when I'm in the belly of the beast. Wow. Praise God.

    This scripture is such a blessing!! I can visual this verse because like Jonah, I had one foot in hell with a reprobate mind and all but my last rational thought before I slipped away was "Lord help". He heard me and snatched from the jaws of sin and shame. But God!! Hope you ladies have a blessed week walking in your purpose! xoxo

  • Touching the life of many and impacting the world. It's good to know that our prayers reach the ears of God!

    Love the image of our prayers wafting up to His temple. Help me to turn to Him when my life is fainting away.

  • What a great verse to wake up to…..especially after a not so good day yesterday…..Thank you Lord for this new day and all it promises in YOU….Thank you Lord that you are not far away from me, and that from your temple you hear my cry, my prayer……Bless you Lord for this new day, New dawn…..New perspective….New slate, May I sing of this great love forever….forever….Thank you Lord…AMEN.x

    Happy Sunday, sisters….I pray the Lord shower you with abundant blessings…with love….x

    Good morning! Thank you Jesus again for waking me up. What a beautiful scripture to memorize it definitely speaks to me. This morning in my prayer ask the Lord for extra comfort for thing's I'm going through and this is what was brought to me made me cry. Thank you for reminding me. It fit perfect on my lock screen.
