66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
 Our 54th county to pray for in South Dakota is Roberts County, with the city of Sisseton being the county seat.  We release the book of I Timothy to Roberts County.  In I Timothy Jesus is our shepherd and our pastor.  This is one of the three short letters written by Paul, called the Pastoral Epistles, written to Timothy, his spiritual son who was ministering in the church at Ephesus.  The two main purposes of this book were (1) to help us understand the ministry of the local church, and (2) to encourage us to never give up.  

Paul gives us a beautiful picture of Jesus in this book:  "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (1 Timothy 5:23). 

Over 60% of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate also known as the Lake Traverse Reservation is in Roberts County, with lesser amounts being in SD counties of Marshall, Day, Grant, and Codington along with two counties in North Dakota.

The name Timothy means "honoring God." Father we pray in the name of Jesus, that even as you called Timothy at a young age, that the young people in Roberts County and Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate would now rise up as godly examples, "Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity" ( 1 Timothy 4:12).  Father we pray that the young people will have an experience and love relationship in You that causes them to live a life that honors You. 

Father, that the people in Roberts County would pray for our leaders and those in authority as 1 Timothy 2:1-4 instructs us, "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." 
And that a revelation of your redemptive power be made known to them.

 Father, that godly leaders would arise in Roberts County and also the tribal government of Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate.  Father we release in the mighty name of Jesus, a might revival of Your Glory to sweep across Roberts County and this reservation and that many will come to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  And that the people will find their true identity and destiny in You Lord Jesus.
Let Your Kingdom come and Let Your will be done on earth (in Roberts County) as it is in Heaven.  We release the Blessings of the Lord on the land and the people of Roberts County.
