Sample prayers for meetings

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.


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.


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.


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.


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

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
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.

Prayer #7


May your goodness and love be present amongst us today.
Come bless our gathering with unity, hope and vision.
Lord, we pray for unity.
Build in us all a deep respect for one another so that your church may be one.
Lord, we pray for hope.
Come stir your hope within our hearts and renew our faith.
Lord, we pray for vision.
May your vision fill our lives as we seek to reveal your love.
We ask all this in the glorious name of Jesus.


Prayer #8

Heavenly Father,

Fill us with your spirit and courage so that we might bring our talents and gifts to this important work.
Open our minds to the task at hand. Open our ears to each other. Open our hearts to your will.
We make this prayer in your name.

Prayer #9


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,


Prayer #10

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.

Let’s bow our heads and ask for God’s blessings (pause for a few seconds).

Almighty Father, once again we thank you for allowing us here to celebrate the joy of life with our families.

Thank you for showering us with your blessings and guidance the whole year through.

As we interact with each other, may we realize that we’re responsible, not only for our own families, but of others as well.

Enlighten us all to seek your glory and be a good Samaritan to whoever and whenever no matter what creed, beliefs, color or religious affiliation we belong to.

May you grant your blessings upon this gathering that your generous and all abounding love would be evident in the way we treat each other.

May you bless the organizers of this Family Day Celebration that their goals would succeed for your greater glory.

Provide them strength and wisdom to continue their noble endeavor.

May you bless all participants that they could experience your love amidst this momentous gathering.

May you bless those who are left at home, and all families around the globe that your love and peace may reign.

As we go home, bless us so we can spread to our neighbors and bear witness to your goodness and love.

May you allow us to be living witnesses of your Divine Mercy and generosity outside of this event.

All these we pray with the intercession of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
