66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota

 Our 24th county to pray for in South Dakota is Faulk County, with the city of Faulkton being the county seat.  We release the book of Jeremiah to Faulk County.  Jeremiah means "Yahweh establishes, appoints, or sends."  Jeremiah was a priest as well as a prophet called as a young man to proclaim God's coming judgment on the unrepentant people of Judah.   Through Jeremiah's actions and attitude, he portrays a life-style similar to that of Jesus, a type of Christ in the Old Testament. He showed great compassion for his people and wept over them, thus he was called, "the weeping prophet."  He suffered much at their hands, but he forgave them.  The greatest compliment ever paid to Jeremiah was when the people asked Jesus if He was the prophet Jeremiah.  His heart of compassion is similar to the heart of Jesus.

Jesus is clearly seen as the coming shepherd and the righteous Branch (23:1-8) who will bring in the New Covenant (31:31-34).  The name Jehovah Tsidkenu - "Jehovah Our Righteousness" is made known to us in this book (23:6 & 33:16).  Also the sovereignty of God is portrayed in chapter 18 as Jeremiah is sent by God to visit the potter's house revealing God as the potter, and His people, the clay.

Father we pray in the name of Jesus, that the people of Faulk County will be enlightened to the fact that You God, are their potter, and they are Your clay, to mold into your good pleasures for Your Kingdom.  That even as Jeremiah, they will have a compassionate heart, to walk in love and forgiveness for one another in Faulk County.  Let the people and the land of Faulk County cry out, "The Lord is our Righteousness," and that in humility and love for you God, they will walk in Your righteousness.  And that the very shepherd of their souls, Jesus Christ, be magnified across Faulk County.  We Bless you Faulk County as you walk in the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ!
