For your sake Lord Jesus, have mercy on your persecuted people, on the poor, on your church and on our nation, not because we are righteous Lord, but because of your great mercy, and because we call ourselves by your great name.
"Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. 19 Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.” Daniel 9:18-19
