66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
Our 26th county to pray
for in South Dakota is Gregory County, with the city of Burke being the
county seat. We release the book of Ezekiel to Gregory
County. Ezekiel's name means "God strengthens, and Ezekiel
was a prophet who ministered to his people while in Babylonian bondage. He was
also a greatly educated and prepared priest, and was a descendant of the godly
Zadok priesthood. The book of Ezekiel is referred to as the book of "Acts
of the Holy Spirit" in the Old Testament.
In chapter 1, Ezekiel was given a
vision of the cherubim as the 4 living creatures around the throne of God as
"the wheel within the wheel". Chapter 37 was a vision of the
restoration of Israel in the valley of the dry bones, as Ezekiel was commanded
by the Lord to prophesy the very breath of Life into the dry bones. In
chapter 47, Ezekiel experienced the river of God from heaven with its healing
Ezekiel was the first to receive the revelation of Jehovah-Shammah, meaning
"the presence Who is always with us" (from Ezekiel 48:35,
". . . The Lord is there"). Jesus said, ". . . I am with
you always, . . . (Matthew 28:20). Undoubtedly, Ezekiel knew
Jehovah-Shammah - the Lord Jesus and His presence. Ezekiel also knew the
Lord as the great Shepherd Who would come and feed them. Jesus is seen as
the true Shepherd in Ezekiel 34:11-31.
Father in the name of Jesus we release the book of Ezekiel, that Your Presence
would be made known as Jehovah-Shammah to the people and land of Gregory
County. That any area where the enemy has come to kill, steal, and destroy, we
release Your breath of Life to come back to those areas as in Ezekiel 37.
We prophesy, Dry Bones, Live! That the River of Your Presence would flow
through Gregory County, where Your healing properties would be made known to
the people. We release the Good Shepherd of their souls to find that
place of peace, healing, and restoration. And that Your Holy
Spirit would have full reign in Gregory County as the river of God flows
through this area.
