Heavenly Father, we thank You for the opportunity to gather here in fellowship with other believers. Lord, we ask that You grant us the blessing of a safe, fruitful event. Let our discussions be wholesome, and may our spirits be lifted because of the friendships we share. May we honor You with hearts of obedience and words that are full of truth and love. Please bless this group and keep us safe in Your loving arms. We pray this in Your Son’s name. Amen.
