Reverend Dr. Dan C. Cummins, Skyline Wesleyan Church, San Diego, California, offered the following prayer:

Almighty Father, Alpha of life and the Omega to death. This Easter Monday we pray in the shadow of that old rugged cross, cast by the radiant glory emanating from His empty tomb, proclaiming confidently, “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your governance is not vain in the Lord. As we walk crooked paths through perilous times, may that light from His empty tomb be a lamp unto our feet.

Teach us to number our days, and apply our hearts unto wisdom. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and unless the Lord builds this House, our governance is naught and the King's speech vanity.

Lord Jesus, build this House.

Amen. ____________________
