Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Let us pray.

Almighty God, we approach you as servants, servants of your will and servants of one another. Make us united in our work so we can effectively accomplish the good that you have established for us to do.

Grant us humility to recognize your will and sufficient courage to submit ourselves to it. Help us to hear your commandment to protect and provide for the hungry and the homeless. Keep us mindful of those in prison and those who suffer from physical or social maladies. In all things, give us a heart that demonstrates true love.

In serving this great city, may we serve her citizens, and in serving our brothers and sisters, may we serve you.

Heavenly Father, look down on this assembly and bless us. Let your face shine on us. Be gracious to us. Look upon us kindly, and give us your peace.

In the glory of your name, we pray.
