Conducting a Meeting

Father, in the name of Jesus, may Your wisdom prevail today in our meeting. Help each of us to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that You desire.

Lord, I recognize Your Holy Spirit and welcome Him to the meeting, acknowledging our dependence upon His presence and guidance. With Hi help, I purpose to respect and regard every individual’s opinions a valuable and worthy of consideration. Knowing that a soft answer turns away wrath, I will be polite and courteous in all our deliberations.

Help each one of us to offer our opinion at the appropriate time and to resist any feelngs of self-pity or self-aggrandizement. Guard us from thinking that our opinions are not being heard.

I pray for those who have to deal with rejection Help them to know that any negation of their opinions or suggestions is not personal.

Should my own opinions be rejected, I refuse to believe that I, personally, am rjeted. I will remember that my opinions are not me.

Father, Your love in me does not insist n its own right or its own way, for it is not self-seeking. I submit to the wisdom that comes from heaven for it is pure, peace loving, considerate, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. As a peacemaker, I sow in peace, reaping harvest of righteousness.

Thank you Father, for wisdom that is from above,

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
