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.’

Jonah 2:9

The song of Jonah is a prayer of praise for salvation that is yet to come. While he yet remains in the belly of that sea creature, he thanks God for saving him from death. Don’t wait to tell God “thank you” for the gifts he wants to give you; your grateful heart is a gift to Him that He will faithfully reciprocate.
