Here is an original prayer used at the dedication of a church prayer chapel. The prayer was printed in the program and those present prayed the prayer in unison.
Prayer of Dedication for a Prayer Chapel
Lord God, who compels and calls us to pray, who meets us in prayer, we come together as your body the church, to dedicate this Prayer Chapel for your glory. Come, Holy Spirit, and fill this room with your presence and power. Come, Lord Jesus, and hear our prayer, hear the prayers of those who stop here, who lift up their hearts to you. May all who come here find sanctuary in this place. May they find comfort and solace for their souls. May they know their prayers are heard and answered. May their faith be strengthened, their love refreshed, their hope encouraged. May the experience of prayer which they have in this place enable them to be disciples, that they might follow you in the way that leads to eternal life, and may their discipleship be a witness that invites others to new life in Christ. We pray this together, Lord, as your children. Amen.
