We come together here today to pray for the words that will be spoken next. For the unity of our congregation, and for the health and safety of each and every one of us. May the Lord bless us with His wisdom as we consider what is best for His church. And may He continue to guide our actions in this time of transition. Amen.
Church meetings always close with a prayer. This prayer is often said by the pastor or someone appointed to lead the congregation in prayer. The following is an example of a closing prayer:
Dear God, we come before you today and offer our thanks for all that you have done in this meeting. We ask that you would continue to bless us and help us stay focused on your will. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen
The closing prayer for the weekly church meeting was given by Pastor John. He asked that everyone’s prayers be offered for the church and its members. He also thanked everyone for their participation in the meeting and reminded them that they can always contact him if they have any questions or concerns.
It is my honor and privilege to offer the closing prayer for our church meeting. As we come together as one body to worship God, I would like to ask for His continued guidance and protection during these next few weeks. May God bless each of you as we continue on this journey together. Amen.
Sharing from the Bible
The Lord’s Prayer is a prayer that has been prayed by Christians for centuries. The prayer was given to Jesus by his father, God, before he began his ministry. The Lord’s Prayer is an example of petitionary prayer. Petitionary prayer focuses on asking God for help or forgiveness.
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus asks for wisdom, strength, and mercy. He also requests that God would forgive humankind for their sins. Christ taught that we should pray “Thy will be done” (Matthew 6:10) as our goal in life. We should not try to achieve anything ourselves, but rather let God take care of everything.
The last part of the Lord’s Prayer is a request for peace and protection from Satan. Although Christ was betrayed and crucified, he still prayed for us to have peace. In John 14:27, Jesus said, ” Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you.” We can have peace because we belong to the same family as Christ and he has given us his peace.
Praise and Worship
Few things in life are more satisfying than praising and worshiping our God. Closing prayer for a church meeting is a perfect opportunity to give thanks for all that He has done in the past, and ask Him to continue working miracles in our midst. Leading up to prayer, invite everyone to take a few minutes to reflect on what God has done for them during the meeting. After prayer, offer a word of praise and encouragement to those who spoke. Finally, invite everyone to join together in singing hymns or pray together. This concludes an amazing church meeting!

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
We believe that he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, died, was buried, and rose again on the third day. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
We believe that Jesus will come again to judge the living and the dead. And we await his coming with faith.
When it is time to close out a church meeting, one of the most common prayers is offered. Here is a sample closing prayer that can be used in many different situations.
Dear God, we thank you for this wonderful day. We are thankful for all of the people who have come together to worship you. We ask that you would bless these people and their families with peace, happiness, and health. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
