In Act III, Scene VI, a discussion takes place between  Lennox and another Lord.  They are discussing the fact that Scotland, under Macbeth's rule is suffering.  The country is ruled by a Tyrant and Lennox is hopeful, as he says in this passage, that  Malclom with the help of the English King can take the throne away from Macbeth and return it to its rightful heir, Malcolm.

 Len. "And that well might
Advise him to a caution to hold what distance
His wisdom can provide. Some holy angel
Fly to the court of England and unfold
His message ere he come, that a swift blessing
May soon return to this our suffering country
Under a hand accurs'd!
Lord. I'll send my prayers with him"!

Complete turmoil, the English with Malcolm were invading and lots of Macbeth's support had flown.
