Closing Prayer After Meeting


Father, thank you for all the marvellous things you have done today
Thank you for your love that you have revealed to us
And for the love that we share together as your body


We pray for all the words you have sown into peoples hearts today
Watch over them, protect them
May they take root and produce wonderful things
Things of beauty and great blessings to many.

And as we leave this place now, thank you that you walk with us

May we be alert to your promptings
And live in your endless love

For yours is the kingdom, the power and glory
In this age and forevermore





Short Closing Prayer (suitable for children to say)


We thank you God for...


Every prayer we have prayed
Every song we have sung
All the things we have learned
All the laughter and fun


Thank you for all the joy you bring
And our wonderful times together
May we walk with you as each new day begins
This day and forever





Good Closing Blessing


May God, who puts all things together,
makes all things whole,
Who made a lasting mark through the sacrifice of Jesus,
the sacrifice of blood that sealed the eternal covenant,
Who led Jesus, our Great Shepherd,
up and alive from the dead,
Now put you together, provide you
with everything you need to please him,
Make us into what gives him most pleasure,
by means of the sacrifice of Jesus, the Messiah.
All glory to Jesus forever and always!
Oh, yes, yes, yes.


(Hebrew 13:20-21, The Message)
