"The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head."
Poor Jonah, can you imagine his despair? Yet even in that darkest hour he remembered the Lord and prayed to Him. And as we know the Lord answered his prayer. While we may never be in the belly of a whale we may at times feel much like Jonah with weeds wrapped about our head. I like that vision of weeds wrapped around my head because at times it does feel just like that. And even though that does seem like the hardest time to pray. Prayers must come if we desire the Lord to rid us of those tangled weeds.
