There’s something about meeting that just feels like it should be special. Maybe it’s the anticipation of what might come out of the discussion or maybe it’s just the feeling of belonging together in some way. Whatever the case may be, meetings can be a powerful tool for accomplishing goals. But meetings can also be quite daunting. They require a lot of preparation and often times, people feel like they don’t have enough information to contribute.
This is where prayer comes in. Prayer can help you center yourself and get your bearings for the meeting ahead. It can also provide you with guidance and inspiration, so that you are able to offer your best contribution. Whether you are the person leading the meeting or just praying along with everyone else, prayers for meetings can help make them more productive and meaningful.
When you pray for a meeting, ask for God’s guidance and protection.
Pray for the leadership of the meeting. Ask God to help them be wise and discerning as they lead the meeting.
Pray that everyone will have an opportunity to share what they have to say.
Ask God to help everyone stay on topic and listen carefully to one another.
Thank God for the potential blessings that may come from the meeting. Pray that everything will go well and that people will learn what they need to know.
