Almighty and everlasting God, we give you thanks for setting the minds and hearts of your people to proclaim your Word and to work your will, especially though the offerings and opportunities of this Cathedral Church. Inspire its ministry so that the knowledge of your truth in the world might be increased. Broaden its mission so that lives might be ennobled and lifted up as examples of your boundless and loving care. Remember those who have built before us that we too may be builders of compassion and concord. And finally we raise up to you, O Lord, the hopes and aspirations of all in this good land, that our heritage of faith may not falter, and that in your light we may hallow the paths of justice and hope. Through the grace and love of Christ, the true foundation stone, we pray, Amen.
