66 Books of the Bible Release to 66 Counties of South Dakota
Our 64th county to pray for in South Dakota is Walworth County, with the city of Selby being the county seat. We release the book of III John to Walworth County. Third
John is the shortest book in the Bible, but it is very personal and
vivid. This letter portrays the church as a family united by bonds of
love, with its members extending gracious hospitality toward one
another. However, selfish ambition and jealousy imperil the church's
fellowship and its members must guard against such attitudes to maintain
a loving relationship with each other. This is contrasted between the
truth and servant-hood of a faithful Gaius and the error and selfishness
of a man named Diotrepehes.
John III verse 11 clearly states, "Beloved, do not imitate what is evil,
but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has
not seen God."
The apostle presents Jesus as the Truth in whom
we should walk. In this book, the lives of Gaius and Demetrius
harmonized with the teachings of Christ and gave strong witness to the
power of His love. On the other hand, the attitude of Diotrephes shows a
marked contrast to the true life in which Christ is to be first in
everything. The frequent references to truth point to Jesus Who is the
Father in the name of Jesus, we thank you for Your people in
Walworth County and that the fruit of Holy Spirit is evident in their
lives enabling them to "walk in the truth." We thank you they are able
to discern what is good and walk in it accordingly in Your Kingdom
We declare and release this verse over Walworth
County: "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in
health, even as your soul prospers" (III John 2).
Thank you Father, as Your people continue to grow and walk in Your truth, they prosper in You. For
every area of their lives, the spiritual, physical, emotional and the
material, we pray for prosperity in Walworth County for Your Kingdom.
We release the light of Christ's truth, freedom, and prosperity over Walworth County!
