In closing a meeting or church service in prayer, we can thank God for the way that He has been with us during meeting, and ask Him to continue to inspire and protect us as we leave.
Gathered together on this page are a number of short prayers drawn from the Episcopal, Methodist, Celtic & Catholic traditions, as well as two modern prayers for closing bible studies and meetings.
Closing Prayer for Meeting
thank you that you have revealed Your love to us today. We invite You to send us out from here in the power of the Holy Spirit. Fan into flame the gifts that you have given us, Come reveal Your grace and truth to us each day. For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, Forever and ever. Amen.
May The Road Rise Up To Meet You
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Closing Prayer for Bible Study
your word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Thank you that we can live in Your light and walk in Your truth. May the things that you have revealed and thoughts that we have shared dwell in our hearts and stir us to action. We ask all this in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.
Closing Prayer for a church service
thank you that we are a family in Christ. Help us to share his love and legacy with everyone that we encounter this week. May we lavish Christ’s abounding goodness upon our families, friends and colleagues.
Holy Spirit, come and equip us in our workplace, guide us in our school life, and inspire us in our neighbourhood. May we be your hands and feet to the needy, your words of affirmation to the oppressed and your arms of comfort to the lonely. Thank you for choosing to use us to bring your kingdom here on earth. Amen.
