Let us pray in silence,
and ask God to bless us all.
(Moment of silence.)
Father in Heaven,
we thank You for this community center
which we are opening today.
Bless this building and all who use it.
Grant that all the activities that take place here
will build up a spirit of community among us
and lead to the well-being of all our citizens.
we praise You,
and ask Your blessing through Christ our Lord.
