A Prayer For the Building of Our New Church

Lord our God, Who because of the great multitude of Thy goodness and love for mankind hast chosen and sanctified this place, and has laid upon it the foundation of a church to the glory of Thy most-holy name: Having bowed the knees of our souls and bodies, we humbly beseech Thee: Send down now Thy heavenly blessing, and bless the beginning of this building, and strengthen and establish it, and bring it to a successful conclusion. Grant bodily health and spiritual salvation unto all that shall lend their help in the building and completion of this temple; bestow upon them the multitude of Thy heavenly and earthly good things; strengthen the laborers, preserving them unharmed from every evil thing; and preserve these foundations indestructible and immovable. And bring this Thy temple speedily to completion, that unceasingly therein, even to the end to the ages end of the ages, with exalted hymns and laudations, and Bloodless Sacrifices, we may glorify and sing the praises of Thee, our only true God. For unto Thee is due all glory, honor and worship, come to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
