I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:7-8
Our Father in heaven,
Gideon built an altar to You and called it Jehovah-shalom. That same night You instructed him to pull down the altar of Baal, use the wood to build an altar to You and offer a burnt sacrifice.
When Gideon asked for a sign, twice You visited the fleece at night.
At night You came to him again and told him to meet the Midianites in battle. You gave him yet another sign. He overheard someone recount a dream about a loaf of bread tumbling into the Midianite camp and overturning a tent.
At night, Gideon routed the Midianite camp, by blowing the trumpets, breaking the pitchers, holding the lamps, and shouting, ‘The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.’
We thank You for visiting the faithful at night. Stay close to Your sons and daughters in Israel, Lord. Give them instructions. Grant their requests for signs. Speak to them in dreams.
Jesus, You are the Bread of Life. Overturn the tents of the terrorists.
May the Christians in Israel release the sound of the trumpet, hold up the light of Christ, and wield the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Amen.
