The story about Jonah pray in the belly of the fish, From Bible Jonah 1:17, 2:1-10

1:17
Now the Lord provided a huge fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

2:1
From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God.

2:2
He said:
“In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.

2:3
You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers swept over me.

2:4
I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’

2:5
The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.

2:6
To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you, Lord my God, brought my life up from the pit.

2:7
“When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.

2:8
“Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.

2:9
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.’ ”

2:10
And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.
