Prayer: Blessing to Begin a Meeting

My Lord and My God,
You called from their busy daily lives
your servants Abraham and Sarah, Moses and Miriam,
Mary of Nazareth and your Son, Jesus,
to come apart and to spend time with you.

Come and consecrate this place
where we gather today.
Cleanse it of noise and
anything that might call us away from your presence.

May this space
become a place where we wait upon You,
our Lord and our friend.

May prayerful peace flow outward from here
touching with grace all those we love
and all the earth as well.

Lord, may our prayer be one with the prayer of all
throughout the earth who are aware of your presence,
forming a luminous hymn of praise to You.

May the Blessing of Almighty God,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
be upon us as we meet today. Amen.
