God with us - Zechariah 2:1-13

Jerusalem is protected by your presence.
You will be the glory in her midst.
May we flee to her with abandon,
Live in her with joy,
Discard Babylon and her treasures.

Many nations will be joined to Israel,
We will become your people,
You will dwell with us,
You will be our portion,
Surrounded by your wall of fire,  
And we shall be your inheritance.

Come, Lord Jesus, Come.

Surprising Victory - Zechariah 1:7-21

Our world is at rest,
Content in our pride,
Assured in our confidence that you will not act.
But you have promised that you are a jealous for your people,
Angry at our disregard for you,
That you will comfort Zion and choose Jerusalem,
And you will destroy the power of nations by humble craftsmen.
Hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done.
We pray for that day, when your kingdom is built.
We pray for our faithfulness in the task.
We pray for our love and light as we labour for your kingdom.
For Christ sake
