Dedicatory Prayer Excerpt:  "May a spirit of solemnity rest upon all who enter herein. Open to their vision a glimpse of Thy great and everlasting designs. Bless all who shall preside and serve in this
house, now and in the years to come. Give them strength according to their need. Give them faith to accomplish Thy work. Give them that love which is the essence of the gospel of Christ. Bless Thy work in all the earth. Look down upon Thy people everywhere, and open the windows of heaven and shower blessings upon the faithful. We remember before Thee the needy and distressed. May we reach out to
help and sustain them wherever they may be."
