8 Best Closing Prayers for Meetings

A closing prayer is a great way to end a meeting or church service in prayer. Thanking the Lord for continuing to inspire and protect us is just one way to express our thanks. Here are some closing prayers for meetings that will help get you started.

Gratitude Prayer
Gracious Father, thank you for making this day successful.  As we depart, Lord, we ask you to be with us.  May your angels go before us and clear the way so that we can reach home safely. Thank you for the lives that you have prepared beforehand for us to touch with your word. Lord, thank you for the laughter and the wonderful time that we’ve shared.  May all glory and honor come back to you in everything that we do.  It is in Jesus’ name we believe and pray, Amen.

Guidance Prayer
Awesome God, as we leave this place, we put our trust in you because we know you will never shame us. We hope continually in you and praise you more and more. May we tell of your righteousness as we leave this place and even when we come back.  Be our guide in everything that we do and lead us to the rock that is higher than us. Help us to abide in your word and let it guide us in all that we do. We shall continue to look up to you because we know that you are our shepherd, and we shall not lack anything.  In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Productive Meeting Prayer
Almighty God, we thank you for this beautiful day.  Thank you for enabling us to be productive during the meeting.  Lord, let what we discussed here bear fruit in our lives and in other people.  Don’t allow the enemy to steal what we have been taught from our hearts.  Cover us with the blood of your son Jesus and show us how to use the information that we’ve learned here for your glory. It is in Jesus’ name we believe and pray, Amen.

Love and Serve Better Prayer
Father, you’ve called us to serve others.  Help us to serve your people with the love of Christ.  Despite the many challenges we face give us your grace that we may be able to handle even the most difficult people as we have been taught in this meeting.  Fill our hearts with your love that we may be able to pour it out on other people in the world.  Holy Spirit,  teach us how to handle different individuals that we will be dealing with when we get out there.  Put the right words in our mouths that we may not say things that will offend others and cause us to sin against you.  In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Thankfulness Prayer
Father, we want to thank you for being with us throughout this meeting.  Your presence has been in this place from the start to the end, and we want to say thank you.  Lord, as we leave this place, let us go out there and be the salt and light.  May we put into practice what we have discussed and learned. Help us to make a difference in this world for the glory of your name. Lord, where we drifted and said things that do not bring glory to your name we ask you to forgive us.  In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Blessing Prayer
Father, may your name be praised greatly for giving us good health to gather here. May your praise be continually in our mouths. Bless everyone that is here for they have left their busy schedules to gather here for this meeting.  Bless their families and their jobs. Lord, let your face shine upon them.  Lift your countenance upon them, be gracious to them and give them peace throughout the day and week. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Protection Prayer
Dear God, as we finish up this meeting, we want to express our gratitude to you. We leave this place knowing that you are on our side, and nothing bad will happen to us.  We choose to put our confidence in you and not man.   We lift our eyes to you O Lord because our help comes from you.  Lord, help us to fear you and walk in your ways that we may not give room for the enemy to take control of our lives.  Be our covering and a wall of fire as we leave this place and go back to our various destinations. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Put Into Action Prayer
Almighty God, we started this meeting with you, and we are closing it with you. Thank you for making this meeting a success. We would not have done it without you because many are our plans, but it is you who establishes them. May the things we have learned today stir our hearts and may we put them into action. May what we’ve learned impact our lives, families, friends and the rest of the world positively. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.
