Sanctuary Dedication Prayer
"Father, we love you, and thank you, Father, for all of the awesome things you’ve done—most of all for our salvation, for sending Jesus and for everything He has done. Thank you for giving us the Holy Spirit and not leaving us alone. Thank you for the revelation knowledge of the Word of God and the Gospel and how it has changed all of our lives and how it is impacting us. And Father, thank you for the power of God that has operated, all of the things that have happened to bring this building and the next one into manifestation.
"Father, we give you the praise and the honor and the glory, and we just dedicate this place and ourselves to you. We pray that this place would be a place that glorifies you and that we would worship you. And Father, when people come in here, they would feel the presence of God. We call this property The Sanctuary, a place dedicated to the glory of God. And Father, I pray that from the moment that people drive in here that the glory of God is going to be manifest, that bondages will be broken and Father, people who are afflicted and depressed and discouraged for not knowing the truth, we thank you that the truth will go forth from this place and that it’s gonna change peoples’ lives and that they will never be the same.
"Thank you, Father, that people will be born again, baptized in the Holy Spirit and that bodies will be healed. Father, we just speak that your supernatural power is manifest and flowing and that people are healed even right now we receive the power of the Lord is present to heal people right now, in the name of Jesus. Father, we thank you that relationships will be restored, that love will dominate this place, that, Father, all men will know that we are your disciples by our love one for another.
"Father, I pray that Woodland Park and this whole area is going to be impacted—that every person here is going to go out and represent you and Charis Bible College in a way that people will be glad that we are here—that Father, it is going to make a difference.
"We just speak the blessing of God; we speak the protection of God over all this property, over all of these buildings, and I believe that there are no fires, there is no destruction or natural disasters that are going to affect this. We speak your blessing and protection over us, and Father, we just thank you.
"We thank you that Jesus is gonna be magnified, and Father, when we worship you or pray or whatever that Father, you will inhabit the praises of your people, that people will be set free. And we thank you so much for all the things you’ve already done and praise you in advance, Father, that there are going to be awesome times had right here.
"Father, if you tarry, I believe as we look back decades, we are going to remember the great miracles, the miraculous things, the encounters that people have had with God right here in this place. And Father, we thank you, and we praise you in advance. And we speak that the best is yet to come, and we are going to see awesome, awesome, awesome things happen. And we give you the praise and the honor and the glory for it, in the name of Jesus. Amen."
