Bible: Daniel 9:15-18

9:15Now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of the land of Egypt with great power 1  and made a name for yourself that is remembered to this day – we have sinned and behaved wickedly. 9:16 O Lord, according to all your justice, 2  please turn your raging anger 3  away from your city Jerusalem, your holy mountain. For due to our sins and the iniquities of our ancestors, Jerusalem and your people are mocked by all our neighbors.

9:17So now, our God, accept 4  the prayer and requests of your servant, and show favor to 5  your devastated sanctuary for your own sake. 6  9:18 Listen attentively, 7  my God, and hear! Open your eyes and look on our desolated ruins 8  and the city called by your name. 9  For it is not because of our own righteous deeds that we are praying to you, 10  but because your compassion is abundant.
