66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
 Our 47th county to pray for in South Dakota is Mellette County, with the city of White River being the county seat.  We release the book of II Corinthians to Mellette County.  II Corinthians opens a window into Paul's heart and is a book of encouragement.  In this letter Paul shows how very beautifully the work of Christ reconciles God to man and how the work of Holy Spirit reconciles man to God.  Paul encourages the people to go from trials to triumph. 

Jesus is seen in II Corinthians as encouraging the church no matter what their trials.
Christ is -  Our comfort (1:5), Our triumph (2:14), Our Lord (4:5), Our light (4:6), Our Glory (4:6), Our judge (5:10), Our liberty (3:17), Our reconciliation (5:19), Our substitute (5:21), Our gift (9:15), Our master (10:7), and Our strength and power (12:9). 

Father we thank you that Mellette County has found their freedom in Christ and out of that freedom cause them to live as Your living Epistles today.
". . . Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2:17).
“You are an Epistle of Christ”(3:2).

We pray and declare II Corinthians 5:17-21
We declare that the people of Mellette County embrace they are "new creatures in Christ, and that the old way of thinking and doing things have passed away. That the ministry of reconciliation be shown in Mellette County to their fellow man causing them to be Your ambassadors of righteousness. 

We declare that as the people of Mellette County walk in obedience to you God, they are ambassadors for the Kingdom of God and carry the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.  And that "no weapon formed against them shall prosper."
"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled" (II Corinthians 10:4-6).

We declare and Bless you in the name of Jesus, Mellette County, His abounding grace and abundance.
"And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you always having all sufficiency in all things, may have abundance for every good work" (II Corinthians 9:8).
