Dedicatory Prayer

Benjamin Burke
Resident Advisor and Student Ministry Coordinator

O Gracious God,
As we come to open these doors
We pray that you may bless all those who inhabit these halls
That you will transform these halls into a home, strangers into a community
And that your voice will resound in each resident, so that they may live in your teachings
That you may protect and strengthen, bless and comfort all those who walk these halls

As we gather to bestow names upon these buildings
We ask to remember what is in a name,
Every word has a grand meaning, but only you are unknowable
So we ask for knowledge, wisdom, and guidance in the days ahead.

Thank you for the blessings that you have given us, Gracious God
And we pray that you may continue to bless each person here and this institution
In your name we pray.

Amen.
