Joseph Pipa, in his book The Lord's Day, has collected some prayers from other sources. The one below is from James W. Weir, Home Worship: A Series of Topical Prayers for Use in the Family. The portion of it quoted here is a prayer for those who minister (a bit self serving); and for the congregation.
Lord, bless those who shall minister in holy things this day. Give them the unction of the Holy One. Let the love of God and of truth and of souls animate them in all the duties of the sanctuary. Give them wisdom to understand and zeal to declare the whole counsel of God. Oh, may they, as they stand between the living and the dead, encourage thy people in the narrow way of righteousness and salvation and warn the ungodly to flee from the broad way of sin and death...
