Please add to it it!

Higher Power, help guide us in this business meeting.
May we remember how desperately we need each other,
And strive to maintain unity above all, 
that we may continue to be of service 
to the still suffering addicts who come to us.

May we remember...
that all voices comprise the group conscience...
And strive...
to place principles before personalities,
to seek solutions that best meet all needs...

I'd combine these with your prayer to:

In this business meeting, may we remember
How desperately we need each other,
How we are guided by power greater than ourselves, and
That all voices comprise the group conscience.

Let us strive to maintain unity above all,
To place principles above personalities,
To seek solutions that best meet all needs,
That we may continue to be of service
to the still suffering addicts who come to us.

That's lovely.

Can I add, "May we not have tantrums and angry outbursts"?  (Pointing a finger at me, no one else.)  :)

This is a good prayer.  Just finally got to this thread today.  Thanks, Leann and Scott.  I'm going to try to remember that it's here next month when GSC comes around.

Oh, and the tantrums and angry outbursts sometimes lead us into deeper humility and understanding of one another, if we stick around and have the commitment to work through things.
