Conscious Business #2 "And not simply the accomplishment of tasks and projects..."

The following prayer is used by one of our clients before each meeting. We've found It helps to keep things light and in perspective:

As we gather together may God's spirit be among us to guide, empower and bless us.

Lord, as we prepare to begin our meeting
we recall your promise to be present
when two or three are gathered in your name
we know that without you here among us,
and within each of us, we will labour in vain.


Response: Unite us, Lord in your spirit

We rejoice that we are blessed and called together
to work in your name
we pray that we will respond generously
to this opportunity to serve you
and that we will grow in our Christian calling

Response: Unite us, Lord in your spirit

Inspire us with your wisdom
Plant seeds of your vision in our hearts and minds
give us humour and give us humility
in our working with one another
So that we may know the privilege of participating
in the coming about of your kingdom.

Response: Unite us, Lord in your spirit

Let us pray together:

It is our hope that the true business of this meeting
will be our spiritual transformation
and the transformation of others through us
and not simply the accomplishment of tasks and projects.
We ask this as we now begin in the name of the father, the son & the holy spirit. Amen.
