66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
 Our 62nd county to pray for in South Dakota is Turner County, with the city of Parker being the county seat.  We release the book of I John to Turner County.  The writer of the book is John, the apostle.  The theme is fellowship in the Father's kingdom, and John uses two beautiful expressions to describe God: love and light.  The book of I John encourages us to leave our old life and walk in our new life.  This book deals with worldliness.  Worldliness is not so much a matter of activity as it is an attitude.  Worldliness not only affects your response to the love of God but it also affects your response to the will of God (I John 2:17). 

John uses three themes throughout the five chapters: obedience, love, and truth.  A spirit-controlled mind knows and understands truth, a spirit-controlled heart feels love, and a spirit-controlled will inclines us to obedience; this book deals with spirit, soul, and body.  Our life begins with Sonship and continues in fellowship.  The secret of victory over sin is to walk in the light.  This book deals with obedience to God Who is love and Who is light.

Beholding Jesus:  Jesus is seen as the "Word of life: (I John 1:1), our "advocate" (I John 2:1), and "the Christ" (I John 2:22).  The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin ( I John 1:7).

Thank you Father that through the Blood and the light of Jesus Christ Your people in Turner County, know the greater one that lives in them.  Knowing that the very one Who died for them, now lives in them.
". . . He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world"(I John 4:4).

Father we thank you in Jesus name, that Your people in Turner County are walking in Your light and Your love.
" . . . God is love, and he who abides in love, abides in God, and God in him (I John 4:16).  "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear . . ." (I John 4:18).

We declare the people of Turner County are walking in victory as over-comers in this world through Jesus Christ.
"For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.  And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith.  Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" (I John 5:4-5).
