In some organizations, opening and closing prayers for meetings are part of the agendas that must be observed. This is a good idea, as it helps to commit the meeting into the hand of the omniscient One.
This is not limited to worship services such as bible study, Sunday service, or fellowship alone. So, whatever category your organization might be, as much as you believe in prayer before meeting at work, we’ve got you both opening prayers for meetings, and some thanksgiving closing prayer.
Included in this post are short opening prayers before meeting, opening prayer for virtual meeting, opening prayer for business meeting or teachers’ meeting, and of course, benedictions and closing prayers.
These may be prayed exactly as written, and they may serve as inspirations to come up with your personalized prayer before meeting at work.
