Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

In the spirit of ecumenism, join me as we speak in this sacred dialogue we call prayer. Let us pray.

Our father, now our God, we greet thee this morning with this gratitude of thanks. We honor and bless your sacred presence and power in this place of social deliberation. Now we petitioned our holy Council to meet us and advise us of our collective electoral commitments and responsibilities. Grant us the wisdom that we act with performance and heroic deed in our formal decisions. Extend to us the understandings of our moral intentions and corrective participations that we may produce the equal distributions of resources amongst the rich and the poor that have been entrusted to us.

Grant us, oh God, your highest generosity that prejudice may not blind the children of men and that wounded justice while lying prostrates on our city streets be lifted up from this dust of shame to reign supreme.

We pray for the love of people and not the lines of party. Now we pray peace in this city and the globalized effect of it chained in strength. We pray for unity among our constituents, integrity of our officials, and justice for all.

Pops Vafiscon (ph). In Jesus' name, we pray.

Amen.
