In more than 15 years in ministry, I have held thousands of meetings in church, families, and the corporate world. Meetings are a reality in human life, so you constantly participate or lead some. They are crucial and are meant to deliberate matters essential and find the way forward. I encounter many questions on how to conduct successful meetings and conclude the meetings reasonably. I have always recommended closing prayer for meetings to complete on a positive note.
An example of a Closing Prayer for Meetings to Conclude on a Positive Note is, “Dear God, we thank you because of our meeting today. We ask you for strength to accomplish our plans and to implement the decisions that we have made. we pray for the peace of each person, and for guidance and wisdom in their work. let your grace be multiplied among us Amen.” This prayer was inspired by the 21 prayers by the edito-in-chief of Connectus Organization.
This article will provide prayers that you can use to conclude meetings on a positive note. It will give various prayers that focus on issues such as seeking guidance in accomplishing what the meeting was about, guidance for all members, and thanksgiving, among others. It will also indicate how long a closing prayer should be. Keep reading to learn this and much more!

Can you say these prayers to close any meeting?
You can use these prayers to close most meetings because they have crucial aspects of thanksgiving, asking for wisdom, strength, peace, unity, and success. They also act as reminders of the critical elements of the meetings, the role of individuals, and each individual’s significant part in the team. You can either pray the exact prayer or use them as a model prayer to customize a more tailored prayer to your kind of meetings and groups.
How long should a closing prayer be?
There is no standard length for a closing prayer. However, judging from most closing prayers gathered from various backgrounds, such as the Catholic traditions, Celtic, and Episcopal, such prayers should be one to one to two minutes long. The prayers are short because people may already be tired because of the meeting. Again, you do not want to turn a meeting into a prayer session, considering that some people in that meeting might not be into religion or prayer.
