We recall today, Father God, the prophetic promises that you made to Zechariah, of the “coming King—the Messiah.” These promises were made to the people living a long time ago. However, our situation in this world of today is very similar. So we reclaim those promises for ourselves, as part of the same blood covenant.

You promised, because of that shed and shared blood, that you would set the prisoners free from the waterless pit. Water speaks of your WORD (both the written Word, and Jesus as the Word—without whom there would BE no written Word). Ephesians 5:25-26 also tells us that God will sanctify and cleanse His Church (His Bride) with the washing of water by the Word. This, then, is for US, and we fully claim it, in and by the name of Jesus.

In Zechariah, you told your people, “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope!” Then you declared that you would restore double to them. 2 Corinthians 10:4 tells us: “…the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. 1 Thessalonians 2:19 speaks of our hope (which we are locked into) as being your very own presence as the Messiah, in fullness—the Lord Jesus Christ. Hebrews 11:1-2 tells us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for–the evidence of things not seen–for by it the elders obtained a good testimony. This, then, is for US, and we fully claim it, in and by the name of Jesus.

In Zechariah, you spoke of bending Judah (your bow) after notching the arrow (Ephraim), and raising up the sons of Zion against the sons of Greece, and calling the people coming out of captivity “a mighty sword in the hand of a mighty man.” Judah and Ephraim speak of Judah and Israel. Also, Ephraim and his men were expert archers. The sons of Zion (the City of God) were enabled through a special covenant to destroy the forces of the Syrian kings of the time, who were oppressing God’s people. This, then, is for US, and we fully claim it, in and by the name of Jesus.

Zechariah prophesied that you would be seen over them (as their banner), and that your arrow would go forth like lightning. Also, he said that you would blow your trumpet, and make use of the winds from the south to defeat the oppressors. These things speak of Holy Spirit’s power over the elements, and the winning of all battles. Also, your LOVE, is your banner–flying high over your people at all times. This, then, is for US, and we fully claim it, in and by the name of Jesus.

The rest of these verses also apply to us. You are the Lord of Hosts, and will defend us. You will provide, and indeed ARE, all of the weapons of our warfare, which are not carnal, that will defeat every spiritual enemy. The blood of Jesus has been poured out on the altar, and it sustains us.

We, Lord, are saved from oppression, in THIS day, since we are your flock, and the jewels in your crown, and your banner over us always has been, and still is, your mighty LOVE.

How great and how beautiful is your wonderful goodness, our Lord! You have given us everything thing we need—for spirits, souls, and bodies—whether male or female. Therefore, again, we fully claim this victory, in and by the name of Jesus.
