A prayerful reflection on Judges 6, the call of Gideon.
Lord God, I pray for all the vulnerable who are looking for a hero. Let them find one.
I pray for all the heroes. Let them lay their egos in the dust. Make them the strong men and women you call them to be.
"Go in the power you have and save Israel." Lord, like Gideon, we forget and can hardly believe you are with us. Yet, you point to the power you have given and tell us to act, doing your impossible things.
Let us live Pentecost today as ordinary reality. We are Israel, receiving our awaited salvation. We are your Church, sent with salvation for all.
