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

Our 61st county to pray for in South Dakota is Tripp County, with the city of Winner being the county seat. We release the book of II Peter to Tripp County.  The book of II Peter deals with the problems from the inside as I Peter deals with problems from the outside.  This epistle was written by Peter to warn the believers about false teachers and exposing them.  It is also written to exhort the readers to "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (3:18), because this growth into Christian maturity is the best defense against spiritual counterfeits.  "Knowledge" in II Peter is more than intellect, but an experience with God that results in moral transformation (1:2, 3; 2:20).  The last chapter emphasizes the Second Coming of Christ, which assures the fulfillment of the promise of the Lord's return and teaches that its expectation should motivate Christians to godly behavior. 

The "Lordship" of Jesus Christ is paramount in II Peter.  Through His power believers are granted all things pertaining to life and godliness; through His knowledge they receive glory and virtue, through His promises they were made partakers of His divine nature.  Peter tells us that the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the pathway to Christian maturity.  Peter also looks forward to Christ's Second Coming (II Peter 3:10).

We thank you Father that the people of Tripp County are fruitful in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (3:18), and are walking in a daily experience in Christ, therefore being transformed into the image of Your Son, King Jesus.

That Your people will know without wavering of their call and destiny You have for them in Your Kingdom, "Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly in the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (II Peter 1:10-11).

We thank you Father that the people of Tripp County know and move in your great promises for them, ever being transformed into Your divine nature in Christ Jesus.
"Whereby given us exceeding great and precious promises: that through these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust" (II Peter 1:4).

Father, Let Your Kingdom Come, Your Will be done in Tripp County!
