My Prayer Collections
(A prayer suitable for a school/college department meeting)
Heavenly Father, we come to you today asking for your guidance, wisdom, and support as we begin this meeting.
Help us to engage in meaningful discussion; allow us to grow closer as a group and nurture the bonds of community.
Fill us with your grace, Lord God, as we make decisions that might affect the students, the staffs, the faculty, the alumni and friends of this academic institution. And continue to remind us that all that we do here today, all that we would accomplish, is for the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of You, and for the service of humanity.
We humbly ask these things in your name, Amen.
(A prayer suitable for a business or work meeting)
Lord, before I go into this meeting, I still myself before you. For you are filled with beauty and light, and care deeply about me.
Help me to listen, before speaking.
Help me to fully understand these people, before making my case.
Help me to value and appreciate the ones I am about to meet, before thinking of my own concerns and anxieties.
May your light enfold me.
May your spirit guide me.
May your grace abound in me.
All these, we pray.
(A prayer suitable for a general/regular meeting)
Before we become involved in the routines of our work, we pause to seek inside for strength and wisdom.
Though we are each experienced in the ways of the world, we all of us know too little of the ways of the spirit.
Our community calls us, by appointing us to office, to give all of our worldly knowledge in this meeting; the spirit that moves between us calls us, by a secret whispering in our hearts, to give all that we can of love.
May we find in ourselves the ability to forgive and forget the failures and failings of the past, so that we may be set free from them.
May we be always more ready to see the good and hopeful in any person and any matter than we are to see the bad and the despairing.
May we remember that when we set standards for what we expect of others, we should expect more from our selves.
In our differences may we be kind, in our agreements may we be humble, that those who learn of our work may see the fruits of the spirit working among us.
I dedicate this work to You.
Imprint Your mind upon it,
Fly with it unto the heavens.
Use it to shower Your love onto the world.
Thank You for Your faith in me that such a
Glorious mission has been placed in my hands.
