“O my God, lean down and listen to me. Open your eyes and see our despair. See how your city—the city that bears your name—lies in ruins.
We make this plea, not because we deserve help, but because of your mercy. O Lord, hear. O Lord, forgive. O Lord, listen and act!
For your own sake, do not delay, O my God, for your people and your city bear your name.”
~Daniel 9:18-19 (NLT)
