Jonah's prayer

Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the fish's belly. And he said:

I cried out to the LORD because of my affliction,I called on the LORD in distress;
And He answered me.The LORD answered me... -Psalm 118
Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,Out of the depths I have cried to You... -Psalm 130
And You heard my voice.He heard my voice... -Psalm 18
For You cast me into the deep,
Into the heart of the seas,
And the floods surrounded me;
All Your billows and Your waves passed over me.All Your waves and billows have gone over me. -Psalm 42
Then I said, 'I have been cast out of Your sight;For I said..."I am cut off from before Your eyes"
Yet I will look again toward Your holy temple.'Nevertheless You heard...when I cried out to You. -Psalm 31
The waters surrounded me, even to my soul;
The deep closed around me;
Weeds were wrapped around my head.
I went down to the moorings of the mountains;
The earth with its bars closed behind me forever;
Yet You have brought up my life from the pit,O LORD,
O LORD, my God.You brought my soul up from the grave -Psalm 30
When my soul fainted within me,Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. -Psalm 107
I remembered the LORD;
And my prayer went up to You,He heard my voice from His temple,
Into Your holy temple.And my cry came before Him, even to His ears. -Psalm 18
Those who regard worthless idols
Forsake their own Mercy.
But I will sacrifice to YouI will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
With the voice of thanksgiving;I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. -Psalm 27
I will pay what I have vowed.I will pay my vows to the LORD -Psalm 116
Salvation is of the LORD.Salvation belongs to the LORD. -Psalm 3

Psalm 86:13 - For great is Your mercy toward me, and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
