Reverend Dr. Dan C. Cummins

Skyline Wesleyan Church
San Diego, CA

Date of Prayer: 07/06/2017

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord, lift us up, and let us stand, once more by faith on Heaven's tableland, to a higher plane than we have ever, ever been before. Lord, plant America's feet on higher ground.

Let not one heart desire to stay where hate arises and terror displays. Though some may dwell where this evil abounds, let our prayer, our aim, be holy ground.

O, may we live above that world where Satan's darts forever hurl and in one voice make a joyful sound, the song of saints on higher, holy ground.

Let Congress scale the utmost height and catch a gleam of Your glory bright. Through trials and tests, we will be found, our feet at last on solid ground.

We are pressing on that upward way, new heights by faith every day. And on our way, let it not be lost, the upward way is through Your cross.

Lord Jesus, plant our feet, plant my feet on holy ground. In Your name we pray. Amen.
