-Praying Thru the Prophets: Zechariah 12

by Dr. D ~ March 23rd, 2020

12 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

4 In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God.

6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.

7 The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.

8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;

14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart. (KJV)

Our Father,

You are the great creator of all things we see and don’t see; the One who stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundation of the earth, and formed the very breath and spirit within us. We pray for and depend upon Your Wisdom in this time of trouble and confusion.

For over 70 years you have shielded the nation of Israel against all opposition and according to Your Word You will continue to do so until the coming back of Your Son Jesus. Zechariah prophesies that those in the modern nation of Israel will one day recognize that your Son Jesus; the one who was rejected, crucified, and pierced by their ancestors, is their genuine Messiah and they shall mourn for him and eventually celebrate his coming.

Your Word also declares that You will bless and also shield those who recognize him today; those who have an unfailing faith in Your Son Jesus, now and forevermore. We claim and depend upon Your promises; and we are secure in Your love and thankful for Your help in these chaotic and confusing times.

In Jesus name, Amen.
