66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
Our 49th county to pray for in South Dakota is Minnehaha County, with the city of Sioux Falls being the county seat.  We release the book of Ephesians to Minnehaha County. Ephesians is often called the "kingly epistle" or "the epistle of Christian maturity." Paul' important phrase "in Christ" appears about 35 times, more than in any other New Testament book.  The key thought in this book is the gathering together of all things in Jesus Christ.  Christ is the center in Whom all things unite and the bond Who unites all things. In the first three chapters, Paul deals with the concept of unity in Christ.  In chapter 4, 5, and 6 Paul tells how God will bring all this to pass. Christ is God's instrument of reconciliation.  The Church is Christ's instrument of reconciliation. 

Ephesians shows the believer has a responsibility to walk in accordance with his heavenly calling in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 4:1).  Believers must be aware of their position in Christ as a basis of their everyday life (Ephesians 2:6).  We are to sit in heavenly places with Christ, walk supernaturally in Him, and stand in the battle with the armor of God.

The Believer's Position in Christ - Ephesians chapters 1-3 (Sit)
We are seated together in Heavenly places.
We have salvation and have all spiritual blessings in Christ.
We have been chosen by the Father, redeemed by the Son, and sealed by the Holy Spirit. 

The Believer's Conduct in the World - Ephesians chapters 4-6 (Walk)
Walk according to your high calling. 
A Holy Spirit - empowered walk.
A mature walk that works on practical relationships in life.

The Believer's Walk is a Warfare - Ephesians 6:10-20 (Stand)
Put on the whole armor of God, engage in prayer, and having done all, we stand as conquerors. 

Father we thank you in the name of Jesus, that Your people in Minnehaha County not only know whose they are, but where they are, seated with you in heavenly places.  And that every spiritual blessing in Christ is theirs to walk in as they pursue "the high calling" of God you have predestined for them. 

Father we thank you that the people of Minnehaha County are receiving a fresh encounter of the spirit of wisdom and revelation in knowing You and Your calling on them to walk in the riches of Your Glory.  "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. . ." (Ephesians 1:7-18).

We thank you Father, that Minnehaha County is Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for "good works with Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone (2:20-22).  And that the people of Minnehaha County will be fully equipped in the unity and knowledge of the Son of God  into a perfect man (mature son) in Christ (4:11-13).

We pray and declare Paul's prayer in Ephesians 3:16-21 over Minnehaha County.  That the love of Christ would dwell in your hearts through faith being filled with all the fullness of God, exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you can ask or think, according to the power that works in you.

We release in the name of Jesus, the mature Sons of God to arise in Minnehaha County!
