66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
Our 21st county to
pray for in South Dakota is Douglas County, with the city of Armour
being the county seat. We release the book of Ecclesiastes to Douglas
County. Like Proverbs, Ecclesiastes is a book of wisdom.
Ecclesiastes records Solomon's reasonings under the sun while he was in a
backslidden condition. It ends up, however, with his reasonings under the
Son. Contrasting the emptiness of life - even a life filled with wealth
and glory - apart from God, this poetic book serves to remind all of us that no
truly successful man is a "self-made man," but that all good things
come from God (Ecclesiastes 2:24). This book shows clearly the
emptiness and perplexity of life without a relationship with Jesus Christ for
only He can provide ultimate satisfaction, joy, and wisdom.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, tells us the conclusion of the matter, ". .
. Fear God, and keep His commandments . . . " and only through the
grace of our Lord Jesus Christ can we keep those commandments. It would
be the Shepherd's voice and words that would hold Solomon in the time of need
Father in the name of your Son Jesus, we release the book of wisdom of
Ecclesiastes over Douglas County. Father, we release the wisdom under
the Son, of Jesus Christ, and not under the sun of the ways of the world over
Douglas County. In chapter 3, verse 1, you tell us, "To everything
there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven." Father,
cause your people in Douglas County to know the season of time they are now
living and to know their redemptive destiny in You and their purpose for Your
Kingdom. We pray that Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as
it is in Heaven all across Douglas County. As the people of Douglas
County find their true identity and destiny in your Son Jesus, cause the people
to walk in the wisdom of their good shepherd and king. Let the voice of
Wisdom, cry out across the land of Douglas County.
