God is our help and hope

Sometimes it’s wise to appeal to a person in power, to try to get to them to change a decision that seems unfair.

But when you do remember this: Don’t put your confidence in powerful people . . . Joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, who hope is in the Lord their God Psalm 146:3-5).

The Lord grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them (Psalm 145:19).
