Prayer of dedication by Jubilee Village Houseparent Dave Jenkins:
Father of lights, every good and perfect gift is from you.
You describe your greatest gift of Your Son as the Light of Men.
He shines into the darkness and though we walk through seasons of darkness,
His Light always overcomes.
The openings into Your heavens are described as windows.
From the beginnings of recorded time Your created people have stood at windows.
From windows we observe, learn, and are both warmed and inspired.
May your light shine through these new windows in Jubilee Village.
May we who labor and reside here see all we are to see.
In the darkest and loneliest of days may we see new hope.
May we see new relationships rooted in covenants of loving kindness.
May we see discernment and courage arise from the broken.
May we see joy, laughter, and celebration among the young and old.
May we see sunrises and sunsets.
May the sights from these windows call to praise and prayer.
May the laborers who installed these windows be strengthened.
May their labor see reward in this life and into eternity.
May those who sacrificed of their resources see the fruit of their sacrifice.
May you continue to bring prosperity upon DuPage and Kane Counties.
May these counties be light to the world.
We make this dedication in the name of the Light of the world. Amen.
