how to find and replace strings in multiple files

Hi All,
Iam new to unix, I need to find string and replace it in the file name. Like
text_123_0.txt,text_123_1.txt,text_123_2.txt. I need to search 123 and replace it with 234 . Is there any unix command to replace them in single command since i have 5 directories. So i need to go each and every directory.
I need to replace 123 with 234 in each directory. Please give any suggestions
