20 Opening Prayers for Meetings, Church, Bible Study


A prayer to glorify God after the success of the group

Father, We are here today to celebrate a great success! In a world full of chaos and calamity, we embrace a moment of triumph in Your name and for Your glory. Once again we experienced the miracle of your sustenance, as King David so aptly wrote in Psalm 4:7: “You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and their new wine abound.”

Father, our hearts, the very center of our humanity and our souls, are filled with you. In extreme emotion, this indescribable feeling is even more pronounced. We are aware that we could not see this great success come to fruition without the individual focus that you have put into each person here today. Thank You for bringing us together to accomplish this great feat for Your glory, even if the odds were against us as they often are.

Protect our hearts from pride and selfish gain as we celebrate today. Let it fuel our faith in you as our provider and support. Filling our hearts. May all the glory of our achievements be yours today and always. In the name of Jesus, Amen

For the purpose of God

Father, thank you for our similarity. I thank You that we are brothers and sisters by Your design. Let this truth shape how we perceive others, but first, let it shape how we perceive ourselves. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. (Matt Chandler)
