For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish… – Matthew 12:40

Harrison Okene is a blessed man. The sailor-cook was one of twelve men aboard the Jackson IV, a tugboat servicing an oil platform of the coast of Nigeria. When the ship took on water and capsized, Okene began to recite the prayer of deliverance: “Oh, God, by your name, save me. … The Lord sustains my life.” Meditating on the psalms his wife had text him before going to bed, Harrison spent three days alone in a small air pocket of the ship, his shipmates dead in the water slowly rising around him. When South African divers entered the boat, they expected to pull out a body. But thanks to God, they pulled Harrison to life once more.
