When it comes to getting things done, sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. That’s why prayer can play such a big role in getting things done – by asking for help from a higher power, you’re putting yourself in a position of strength and having greater control over your situation.
Purpose of Prayer
Prayer is an important part of any meeting. Prayer can help create a sense of unity among the participants, and it can also help focus the discussion on what matters most.
Many people believe that prayer can also help open the meeting to divine guidance. When we pray, we are asking for help from our Higher Power. This can help us make better decisions, understand complex issues, and achieve our goals.
If you’re looking to start a prayer circle in your meeting, here are five simple prayers to get you started:
“God, please bring us together today to discuss _____.”
“Grant us wisdom as we confront _____.”
“Open our minds and hearts to receive Your guidance in this meeting.”
“Help us to be open and communicative with each other as we work through _____.”
“May all of us feel connected to You during this meeting, and may We return home wiser for having attended.”

The following are five simple steps for prayer:
1. Start by silently asking for guidance and direction.
2. Connect with your Higher Power through a prayer or meditation technique.

5. Close by reaffirming your commitment to follow through with what was discussed during the meeting.
Purpose of a prayer before a meeting
When a group of people get together to plan or conduct business, it is important that they feel comfortable and connected. A way to do this is through prayer. Prayer can help open a meeting and connect the group members with each other and with God.
The purpose of prayer before a meeting is to create an atmosphere of trust, openness, and communication. Prayer also allows the group to connect with God and receive His guidance. By opening a meeting with prayer, everyone in attendance can feel that they are part of something larger and more important.
Guidelines for prayer before a meeting
One way to optimize the prayer time before a meeting is to use a prayer guide. A prayer guide can help you devise specific prayers for different situations, such as before a discussion or presentation.
Another way to pray before a meeting is to focus on God’s presence. Pray that the meeting will be fruitful and that God will provide wisdom and guidance. Ask Him to protect those participating in the meeting, and to help them take appropriate action.
Tips for praying during a meeting
Prayer can be a powerful tool for opening and facilitating meetings. Here are some tips to help you use prayer in the meeting context:
1. Pray for guidance and wisdom. Ask for insight into how to best manage the meeting, and for guidance on what words to speak.
2. Pray for patience and perseverance. Ask for strength to listen attentively, contain emotions, and stay focused on the purpose of the meeting.
3. Pray for unity and cooperation among participants. Ask for forgiveness if anyone feels hurt or attacked by others in the meeting, and ask that everyone work together harmoniously towards a common goal.
4. Pray for protection from harm. Ask for divine intervention to keep everyone safe during the meeting, and to provide physical safety if necessary.
5. Thank God for His blessings on the meeting, and ask Him to continue supporting it as it proceeds. Express gratitude in whatever way is most meaningful to you – a prayer, a poem, a silence – while everyone is gathered in prayerful silence.
