Heavenly Father!
We have assembled here
to install our newly elected and re-elected officers,
to begin another year of work in Thy vineyard.
Grant them health of mind and body.
Heavy is our burden, and great our responsibilities.
We are going through a period of growth,
a period of transition, adjustment and organization.
We implore Thy guidance and protection.
Give us wisdom and understanding,
so that we may know how to wisely solve our problems.
Grant us a spirit of Shalom, of peace and harmony.
May all discussions at our meetings
be tempered by the consciousness
that we are all working for Thy cause
and not for personal honor and glory.
Bless our officers
and all members of our Congregation
with life, health and happiness.
Strengthen the hands of our leaders,
to carry on the work so gloriously undertaken.
May we all live to celebrate the dedication of our New Sanctuary.
Amen.
