Reverend Dr. Dan C. Cummins

Peoples Church

Date of Prayer: 03/23/2018

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Heavenly Father, as we approach holy week, may all in government emulate the humility of the king of kings and lord of lords, who entered Jerusalem not a conquering monarch but a lowly servant riding upon a donkey.

His was not to reign over Rome but to remain obedient to His Father's will and the passion of His cross. In death, He showed us how to live, for greater love has no man than this, than to lay down His life for His friends. In His resurrection, He conquered death, Hell, and the grave. By His ascension, He established His eternal throne and kingdom.

Demonstrating His eternal dominion over sin, He gave us power through His indwelling Holy Spirit. Therefore, let us serve one another, esteem one another, and love one another. Empower us to choose obedience to our King. In the majestic name of Jesus Christ I pray.
