Prayer For Event
God of grace,
We open our hearts, minds and souls to worship to you.
Thank you that today we dwell in your kingdom and live in your presence.
Thank you that as we gather together we join with all Christians across the world to glorify your holy name.
Come be with us, inspire us and lead us in our time together.
We ask all this in the beautiful name of Jesus.
As we come together today, we give you thanks for the good gifts you give us.
We ask for your guidance in our lives,
And we pray that your love would live amongst us.
As We Gather Here
As we gather here in the harbour of your safety
We thank you for fellowship and family.
We ask that you will strengthen us, restore us and inspire us with your love.
Lord, would fill us with your peace
So that as we journey onwards
We would pour out your love and grace to others.
We ask that our souls would catch the wind of your spirit
so that we would take your promises to all the earth.
Thank You for every seat that has been filled here, today. For each mind and heart that fills the presence of this room, we thank You. Only You truly know what we are setting out to accomplish today. We have an idea, a vision, hints, and daily instructions. We have talents, abilities, and time to work. However, only You can see in perfect detail the end of every beginning. Every project, every season, every life. Nothing is ever in vain, for even mistakes and missteps are used for good.
Your righteousness transcends all our efforts and understanding. Forgive us for our pride. The pride that puffs us up and the pride that threatens to unqualify us. Strengthen our confidence in who You have made us to be. Set us free from comparison in order to work together efficiently.
Bless this meeting today, all those present, as well as the lives of those we will encounter afterward. Ready us to make every moment count.
In Jesus' Name,
Dear heavenly Father, we thank you for gatherings all of us today in this important event. May you bestow your guidance and blessings on this event so that we can enjoy and appreciate its significance in our lives. Bless everyone present today that each may be able to share what she or he has for your glory and honor.
Grant good health and safety to loved ones left at home and peace and goodwill to all men. May the various activities related to this event be a success, through your intervention.
We ask all of these in your name, Amen.
God our creator,
you have given us the talent and discipline
which help us to play and to compete together:
Whether we win or fail let us be gracious,
and let us never be glad at another's setbacks;
Grant that when we use the skills you have given us,
we may recall you, the source of all our abilities.
Loving God, bless your servant N
whose birthday is today;
give him/her a joyful heart as he/she celebrates
and remembers all who have brought riches to
and be with him/her,
over the coming year and for ever.
We give thanks and rejoice in the hard work, fun, and fellowship that our staff, volunteers, and all those unknown to us played in making our event a wonderful experience for all.
May we find gladness and satisfaction in all of our successes,
and even in our challenges and lessons.
May this experience of teamwork and sacrifice strengthen our bond as a staff and deepen our commitment to our mission to serve others.
Grant all us rest and renewal in the coming days so that we may continue to serve you faithfully and without ceasing.
We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus the Christ.
