Psalm 63:5-8

My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.  My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.

Broken Foreign Policy

"Today, the ICC formally indicted Libya's Gaddafi for war crimes. Yet, the Nuba Mountains of Sudan are being bombed every single day by a murderous regime in Khartoum led by men who make Gaddafi look like a Boy Scout. America's foreign policy is BROKEN. It is asinine, schizophrenic, and hypocritical." 
~Matt Chancey, a Persecution Project rep. living in Africa
