Jonah 2:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.
7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.

Jonah 2:6-7 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

6 I went down to where the mountains of the sea start to rise.
    I thought I was locked in this prison forever.
But you saved me from death,
    Lord my God.
7 “When my life had almost gone,
    I remembered the Lord.
Lord, I prayed to you.
    And you heard my prayers in your Holy Temple.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

6 Jonah could have easily died in the sea and was on his way to death until God sent the fish to sallow him up. This verse mentions mountains in the ocean. Jonah is starting to be humbled. To fully serve the Lord the way we should we need to be humble. 

7 Jonah was losing strength, truth is anytime we run from God we lose strength. Jonah didn’t realize his strength started to go as he got on the boat instead of when he fell into the ocean. Jonah only remembered God because he had no other choice at this point. We shouldn’t let it come to near death experiences to be right with the Lord. Just Jonah’s prayer was heard, God hears our prayers today.
