In Parashat Pinchas, the posuk says: "Only through a lot shall the Land be divided ... according to the names of their fathers' tribes."
Why did the Torah require the division of the Land of Israel to be done specifically by a lot?
God, who created the world, recognized which tribe is a match for a given portion of the Land. The tribal division by lottery indicates that this essential connection is God given and above human understanding.

Why is it appropriate to mention the Land of Israel as part of this prayer?
The Land’s destruction and desolation achieves atonement for Am Yisrael's sins.
