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

Our 32nd county to pray for in South Dakota is Hughes County, with the city of Pierre, the state capitol of South Dakota, being the county seat.  We release the book of Jonah to Hughes County. The book of Jonah has been called the outstanding missionary book of the Old Testament. When God called Jonah the prophet to preach repentance to the city of Ninevah, enemies of Israel, he 1st refused to obey. The Ninevites worshiped the fish god.  How like God to use the very thing they worshiped to show Himself as the true and living God as Jonah was then swallowed by a whale. Jonah then repented of his disobedience, and as he did so, he was vomited out of the whale right unto the land of Ninevah as he then obeyed God's instruction.  Jonah's story has much to say about the heart of God and the mission of God's people.  The power of God and His mercy in human affairs is richly illustrated in this book.  The prophet Jonah learns that ". . . Salvation is of the Lord" (Jonah 2:9) and that His gracious offer extends for all mankind.

Jesus Himself is shown in this book (Matthew 12
:40), which beautifully illustrates His death, His Resurrection, and His commission to His disciples to ". . . go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).

The Crow Creek Indian Reservation is partly located in Hughes County on the east bank of the Missouri River.  Father we stand in the gap, and ask forgiveness on injustices that have been placed on the native people of this land.  That this would be the hour, that the 1st nation people of this land would move in your grace of forgiveness and love and rise up and lead the way as Your Mighty Worship Warriors for Your Kingdom. 

Father we pray in the name of Jesus, that Hughes County which holds our state capitol city of Pierre, would rise up and be known as a great missionary county.  We release the government of Your Kingdom to have reign in our state capitol.  That the spirit of repentance would be released in areas that You have not been given 1st place, and obedience to You would be foremost.   We bless You Hughes County to fulfill your destiny and preach the Gospel of the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ!
