Tehillim - Psalms 80:8
אֱלֹהִ֣ים צְבָא֣וֹת הֲשִׁיבֵ֑נוּ וְהָאֵ֥ר פָּ֝נֶ֗יךָ וְנִוָּשֵֽׁעָה
G-d, Master of all creations, return us to Your ways; show us Your shining countenance and we will be saved.
Rashi makes the connection to Hellenism in this verse. That the Jewish people may be delivered from this.In my humble opinion, we may extend this to our days. The wish, hope and expectation that G-d will save individual Jews from secularisation, mixed marriages, from gods the ancestors did not know etc. This for the benefit of all creation. For the moment the entire people can fully take up His task and bring the light of Torah fully into the world, there will be peace and redemption for all.
