Put no trust in princes

From Psalm 146:

Put no trust in princes,
in mortal men in whom there is no help.
Take their breath, they return to clay
and their plans that day come to nothing.
He is happy who is helped by Jacob's God,
whose hope is in the Lord his God...
Our nation will not become a better place, simply because George W. Bush was re-elected president. Our nation will become a better place only if God blesses it.

This requires love (we must be the windows of God's light) and prayer: for our nation, for our leaders, and for peace with our enemies.
