Prayer for the election - 2

We should pray that God would keep us from trusting in government or earthly leader to be our Rescuer.

If our confidence is in the policies of a political party or the vision of a politician, we will be regularly disappointed. God alone is our Rescuer who in Christ can save us, give us hope, and be ultimately worthy of our confidence.
Psalm 33:17 The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
