After being kidnapped by terrorists on October 7, Ori Megidish was saved by the IDF about a month later and she tells Arutz Sheva that her faith in God helped her stay strong:

PVT. Ori Megidish, an IDF lookout who was kidnapped to Gaza on October 7 and rescued 23 days later by the IDF, met with donors from the US, recounting to them the most difficult moments of her life…

She responded, “I am a believer. I believe in G-d, I know that He exists. When I was kidnapped, I felt that He would save me. I prayed every day, not from a prayer book but from my heart. I felt my grandmother who passed away, my grandfather and my cousin. I held onto them and I believed that I would get out of there – if not through a deal, then I would be rescued. I had faith in my country and my army, and this gave me the strength to continue believing.”
