As someone who regularly attends meetings, you know how important it is to have a good opening prayer. You also know that it’s equally important to have a good closing prayer. In this post, we will show you how to create both opening and closing prayers that will work well for your meetings. We will also give you some tips for including prayers in your agenda so that everyone knows where they stand when the meeting begins.
Opening and Closing Prayers for Meetings
Prayer is an essential part of any meeting. Whether you are opening a meeting or closing it, prayer can help set the tone and focus for the day. Here are some guidelines for opening and closing prayers:
Thank you Lord for bringing us together today. Please help us to have a positive and productive meeting. Give us strength to work together and wisdom to reach our goals. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Thank you Lord for this wonderful day and our wonderful team. We want to thank each other for our hard work and dedication, especially in these last few months. We ask that you bless us as we go our separate ways, protecting us from harm both physically and emotionally, until next time we meet. Amen.
When it comes to opening and closing prayers, there really is no one right way to do it. However, some general guidelines that can help include thanking the deity or spirit for the meeting’s purpose, expressing hope for the attendees’ well-being, and offering a final prayer of thanks. Closing prayers should also thank the attendees for their presence and ask for their continued blessings.
Blessings Before Meeting
If you are leading a meeting, it is important to begin and end with a blessing. Here are some blessings that can be used for meetings:
Blessing Before Meeting
Dear God, we thank you for this time together. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to come together and make progress. Please help us to use this time wisely and in Your best interests. Amen.
Blessing After Meeting
Dear God, we thank you for our success today. We ask that You would bless each of us as we go our separate ways. In Jesus’ name, we pray. amen
Blessing After Meeting
What follows is an excerpt of a sermon by Pastor Steven Furtick entitled “Blessing After Meeting.” In it, Pastor Furtick encourages believers to take time after meetings to pray and give thanks for the opportunity to have been together.
Prayer is one of the most important things we can do as believers. Prayer brings us into relationship with God and strengthens our relationship with Him. Prayer also helps us connect with other believers, who can help us grow in our faith.
After a meeting, it’s a good idea to take some time to pray. There are several prayers you could pray, including thanksgiving prayers, prayer for strength and wisdom, prayer for discernment, and prayer for favor. You might also want to ask God for guidance about what you should do next in your life.
It’s important to give thanks after every meeting. Thank God for the opportunity to have been together and for the blessings He has given you during the meeting. Thank Him for His presence and for His help in carrying out your mission during the meeting. Finally, thank Him for journeying with you throughout your life and for granting you eternal prosperity in Christ.
Opening and Closing Prayers for Meetings can help to promote a positive and productive meeting environment. By establishing Guidelines for Opening and Closing Prayer, you can ensure that everyone attending the meeting is comfortable with the way things will be conducted. Additionally, following a specific format for Prayer will help to keep your thoughts focused during the meeting. Finally, having a Scriptural Reading at the End of each Meeting can provide closure for participants while also reminding them of what they have learned.
