Default Closing Prayer

I am a member of our Parish Council and at the next month's meeting I am responsible for the Closing Prayer. Does anyone have an inspirational closing prayer?

Well, I don't know if the Holy Spirit is at work here or not, but I just happen to be printing out 35 copies of this prayer, and while I was waiting for the printer to do its job, I decided to go CAF and browse.

Interestingly, I NEVER go to the Spirituality section, but I did just now...why? Perhaps so I can give you this prayer!

Grant, O Lord, that none
May love Thee less this day
Because of me;
That never a word or act of mine
May turn one soul from Thee;
And, ever daring, yet one more
Grace would I implore:
That many souls this day,
Because of me,
May love Thee more.
Amen

I usually go right to the Missal and use the collects of the Mass of the day when I am asked to do the opening or closing prayer.

How about the Nunc dimittis of St. Simeon in Luke 1?

Now let Your servant depart in peace, O Master,
According to Your word,
For my eyes have seen Your salvation
Which you have prepared before the face of all people,
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles,
And to be the glory of Your people Israel.
