“The burden of the word of the Lord in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel shall be toward the Lord. And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise. And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets. Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire.” Zechariah 9 v1-4 AKJV

Lord, let not your hand be against us. Renew us in a strength of mind that continues to love your ways, we thank you. Lord, we know you are our strength and forgive in the times when our trust is not what it should be. Let us trust in you, we thank you. Amen

Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all lanquages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.” Zechariah 8 v22, 23

Lord, this day and every day you are our strength and strong tower. Let us put our trust in you-which means teach us in our actions of trusting you that the end result will be your desire-which will be good for all. Lord, I thank you for this day. Lord, God, I thank you for this day. Amen

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities: And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts: I will go also.” Zechariah 8 v20, 21

Lord, I thank you this day that we can pray. Be with each one that reads and also the ones each one crosses paths with today. Lord, we thank you for this day that we can put our faith and trust in you. Amen

“And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.” Zechariah 8 v18, 19 AKJV

These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgement of truth and peace in your gates: And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbor; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the Lord.” Zechariah 8 v16, 17

Lord, I thank you for all that you have given us-the foundation on which to build good lives. The truth, peace, and correct judgement and loving no false oath. For us to realize your sovereignty is to begin understanding your peace. We thank you, forgive us where we fail, let us keep a repentant heart and walk in the ways you have us to walk. We thank you. Amen

“And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong. For thus saith the Lord of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the Lord of Hosts, and I repented not: So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.” Zechariah 8 v13-15 AKJV

Lord, I thank you for this day. I pray your will be done and I thank you. Let our hearts trust in you, our actions and our words display that trust. We thank you. Amen

For before these days there was no hire for a man, nor any hire for beast; neither was their any peace to him that went out or came in because of affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbor. But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith the Lord of hosts. For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.” Zechariah 8 v10-12 AKJV

Marvelous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan. He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he mad the waters to stand as a heap.” Psalms 78 v12, 13 AKJV

Lord, let us remember all that you have done for us. We thank you, for you are our strong-tower.
