Daniel 9:18-19 – O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our please before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.
Lord God, for the sake of your glory, for the sake of your Son’s name, for us your people who are daily at risk – rise up! Defend us. Protect us. Use us. Do something for your people and for the people of this city who are lost in the darkness of unbelief. Do what is good in your sight for your people. Amen.
