     Let us pray.  Proverbs says, "Honor the Lord with your                                         
     possessions and with the first fruits of your increase, so your                                
     barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow                                   
     with new wine."  Lord, we thank You that Alaska has been a                                     
     land of plenty and as these men and women labor we are                                         
     moving once again towards the land of plenty.  Help them                                       
     with the many decisions that are at hand this day, we pray, in                                 
     the Name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy                                      
     Spirit.  Amen.
