Lord, arise and have mercy upon Zion, and let the time to favour her, yea, the set time, come; Psalm 102:13(KJV) yea, let the Lord build up Zion and appear in his glory. Lord, regard the prayer of the destitute and do not despise their prayer. Psalm 102:16-17(KJV)

O Lord God, cease, I beseech thee: By whom shall Jacob arise, for he is small? Amos 7:5(KJV) O cause thy face to shine upon that part of thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake. Daniel 9:17(KJV)
