66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
 Our 55th county to pray for in South Dakota is Sanborn County, with the city of Woonsocket being the county seat.  We release the book of II Timothy to Sanborn County. This epistle was written by Paul while he was in prison expecting to be executed. Paul needed Timothy to take the leadership of the churches. This letter is Paul's final instructions for equipping Timothy in God's work. 
Paul encourages Timothy to stand firm in the power of the gospel and to overcome any fear in the face of opposition.  Paul then exhorts his spiritual son to reproduce in the lives of others what he has received in Christ.  He is responsible to work hard and discipline himself like a teacher, a soldier, a farmer, a workman, a vessel, and a servant, following the example of Paul's perseverance. It is clear that this letter is really a combat manual for use in spiritual warfare.  Paul also lists the keys to an enduring successful ministry in the second chapter of II Timothy:
  a reproducing ministry, an enduring ministry, a studying ministry, and a holy ministry.
We see Jesus as the Good Shepherd showing His under shepherds how to act and how to behave in the house of God."That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (II Timothy 3:17).
Father we release through Your Son Jesus, these verses over Sanborn County:

We pray that even as the Lord, called Timothy at a young age, that the youth of Sanborn County will hear the calling of God on their lives and pursue a life of righteousness, faith, love and peace in Him.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind (II Timothy 1:7).  ". . . Pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart (II Timothy 2:22). 

We pray that the people of Sanborn County will be students of Your Word, living and moving in Your righteousness and being equipped for every good work. 
"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15).  " All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work" (II Timothy 3:16).

That Sanborn County will be used as a clean vessel of honor for Your work in Your Kingdom moving in Your great power!
". . . if anyone cleanses himself, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.  (II Timothy 2:21).
". . . having a form of godliness but denying its power." (II Timothy 3:5).
