Short prayers to begin a meeting can ask for God's blessing over the meeting and ask God for wisdom to listen as well as to speak. Additional prayers include asking God to help those present at the meeting respect each other.
Many prayers before a meeting thank God for bringing the group together for the meeting. They also thank God for the group's safety. Many times the speaker thanks God for general blessings in life.
In addition, many pre-meeting prayers ask God for guidance, for help in understanding the perspectives of other people present at the meeting, and for God's guidance when making important decisions. A pre-meeting prayer might also state that the group present trusts in God.
