Prayer before meetings examples

by Micai (Philippines)

Almighty God, our Father, we praise and thank you for this day. You have given us another opportunity to appreciate life and to fulfill our mission as Your instruments of peace and progress. Please pardon us for our shortcomings. Help us to amend our impieties, may we learn to pattern our lives through Your Sons example.

Father, bless all our endeavors, especially todays meeting. Guide us in our discussions. Enlighten our minds in every decision that we make. Give us Your grace that we may effectively do our parts as public servants. Bless our plans, programs and projects, so that we may achieve our objectives, for Your greater glory.

All these we ask in Jesus name. Amen.

It’s Monday.  Most of us have meetings to go to today or later this week.  Here is a prayer before a meeting.  It’s published on the St. Louis University Prayerbook, a site where members of the SLU community share prayers.

Heavenly Father, we come to you today asking for your guidance, wisdom, and support as we begin this meeting. Help us to engage in meaningful discussion; allow us to grow closer as a group and nurture the bonds of community. Fill us with your grace, Lord God, as we make decisions that might affect the students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends of Saint Louis University. And continue to remind us that all that we do here today, all that we accomplish, is for the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of You, and for the service of humanity. We ask these things in your name, Amen.

Saying a prayer before a meeting is just one way to bring the Holy Spirit near. As in Matthew 18, 20, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Here is a look at some great sample prayers for meetings.

Prayer #1

As we gather here in the harbour of your safety
We thank you for fellowship and family.

We ask that you will strengthen us, restore us and inspire us with your love.
Lord, would fill us with your peace
So that as we journey onwards
We would pour out your love and grace to others.
We ask that our souls would catch the wind of your spirit
so that we would take your promises to all the earth.

Amen.

Prayer #2

Dear Father,

We thank you for everyone gathered here now.
Thank you that you know each of us by name and have caused us to walk with You.
We say that we are dependant on You and our trust is in You completely.
As we surrender ourselves in adoration we ask that You would come by Your Holy Spirit and inspire our hearts today.

Come fill our lives with Your love,
Fill our conversations with Your grace and truth,
Fill this meeting with Your presence.

We ask this for Your glory and praise.

Amen.

Prayer #3

Dear Lord and Father,

Thank you that you promise us that where two or three are gathered you are there in the midst.
Lord we welcome You amongst us today and celebrate the gift of life that you have lavished upon each of us.
We ask that You would open our ears so that we may hear your voice.

Open our minds so that we may receive Your eternal wisdom.
Open our spirits so that we may know Your leading and guidance.
And open our hearts so that we may receive Your wonderful love.

We ask all this in the glorious name of Jesus.

Amen.

Prayer #4

God, you have made the heavens and the earth.
You have revealed your beauty in creation
and inspired the book that we are now about to study.
Please help us now as we read together.
Take us deeper into understanding more about you
and your love for us.

Amen.

Prayer #5

Lord, you have entrusted use as stewards of your creation
Please guide our hearts as we make our decisions
We seek you first in all we do together
We give you our business, our suppliers, our customers and our workforce
May we be always mindful of their service
We confess that we are nothing without you
And our trust is in you completely
Amen.

Prayer #6

As we gather here in the harbour of your safety
We thank you for fellowship and family.

We ask that you will strengthen us, restore us and inspire us with your love.
Lord, would fill us with your peace

We would pour out your love and grace to others.
We ask that our souls would catch the wind of your spirit
so that we would take your promises to all the earth.
Amen.

Lord,

Look lovingly on this group gathered here.
During this meeting, as we discuss and deliberate on issues of importance to this school, help us to be guided by you Spirit.
May we be wise in our discernment, balanced in our judgment, fair in our decision and visionary in our planning.
Though we may, at times, have differing views, may we listen to one another and be guided by our common goals.
May we always be mindful in our words and actions of what is best for all children in our school.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,

Amen

Lord,
We ask you to preside over our meeting and our labours, and to bless all our endeavours.
Help us to build a community united in harmony of love and service.
Watch over our families at home, at work and at school.
We thank you, Lord, for everything that widens our knowledge and equips us more fully for the task of life and living.
Give us the knowledge and prudence which will enable us to live our life well.
Teach us to know our own weaknesses that we may ever be on our guard against them.
Teach us to know our own strengths that we may use, to the full, the gifts and talents which you have given us.
Help us to share a loving concern for each other at all times.
Above all, Lord, help us to really know you, for this is the beginning and end of all wisdom, this is eternal life.

Amen
