You require your OS cd that came with your computer. Once you find it, put it into the drive and restart the computer

Running Leopard on a box that old is not really the optimum thing to do. It's got 64 bit architecture and being a G4 is 32 bit, your box will not take advantage of the speed increase. As a matter of fact, and this is from experience... your machine will slow to a crawl. I wouldn't stick an OS newer than Panther on a box that old. Even Tiger slowed it down to ungodly proportions.

Lost power to the house with computer on. Once power was restored to house computer would not power up. Tried a different plug and hit reset computer came on. Reset clock and date and powered down...

I suspect that all you have to do is reset the Power Manager (CUDA) to straighten your machine out.
There are several models of Power Mac G4, and the procedure is different for each. Comprehensive instructions are here:

Restore CD

You don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Borrow one!

Resoring my g4 cube model #m7886 to factory

Get a copy of Tiger OS10.4 on DVD. The latest system, Leopard (OS10.5) is a bit too heavy for a cube. You can either purchase from Apple or "borrow" a copy from someone. Apple system software can be installed on more than one machine. Put in the DVD and restart holding down the otion key so the computer starts from DVD and follow the instructions for a "clean install" erasing the hard drive.

Returning to out of the box status

You can do a restore to factory setting if you have a set of restore CD's or if it is stored on a hidden partition. If on a partition it will sometimes give you an F12 option to hit and you follow directions from there. From CD's you boot off the CD's. If this is a home-built unit, you will have to format and reinstall ALL drivers, applications and of course the operating system
