2 Chronicles 6:40
"Now, my God, may you be attentive and responsive to the prayers offered in this place.
may your ear be attentive and your eyes be open to hear the prayer of your servant that I am praying to you today throughout both day and night on behalf of your servants the Israelites. I am confessing the sins of the Israelites that we have committed against you -- both I myself and my family have sinned.

O God, listen to my prayer! Pay attention to what I say!
O Lord, hear my prayer! Pay attention to my plea for mercy!
(Qof) I have called on your name, O Lord, from the deepest pit.
