A Prayer for Building Dedication (Originally prepared for the opening of the Nursing and Science Center at Roberts Wesleyan College – Sept 2015)

13 Nov

Pastor/Leader (with direction): Please join me now in our Prayer of Dedication.  I will lead us in prayer through a number of petitions, each time I say, “we give this building to your work and purposes,”  let our congregational response be, “We dedicate this building to the Glory of God!.”

Pastor/Leader: Almighty God, our Lord and Savior:  We joyfully celebrate the completion of the ________________ (name the building).  We give thanks to all who have given of their resources, their gifts and their labors to make this building possible.  O Lord, with gratitude and thanksgiving we give this building to your work and purposes.

People:   “We dedicate this building to the Glory of God.”

Pastor/Leader:   You are the giver of all good gifts Lord. We believe that you have provided our community with this building and this resource to benefit this campus community and even more so, to fulfill your Kingdom’s purposes in this world. With gratitude and thanksgiving, we give this building to your work and purposes.

People: “We dedicate this building to the Glory of God.”

Pastor/Leader:   Lord, it has been said, “First we form our buildings and then our buildings form us.”  We pray that this building will be a place where lives are formed in mind, body, and spirit so that both those who teach and all those who learn here will become people who reflect your goodness, your excellence, and your compassion and love both here and everywhere they go. To this end O Lord, with gratitude and thanksgiving we give this building to your work and purposes.

People: “We dedicate this building to the Glory of God.”

Pastor/Leader:  In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit we pray.  Amen.
