Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Shall we pray.

Eternal and Gracious Father, we come now in the mighty name of Jesus. God, we thank you for Philadelphia. We thank you, God, for our illustrious Mayor and his entire cabinet. We thank you, God, for our President of the City Council and all the constituents, all of

the members. We thank you, God, for

Sister Cindy Bass and all those that you

have appointed their hands to do.

God, we pray that you will make

us cognizant and conscious of the fact

that you've given some authority, but,

Lord, you are still the chief authority.

You have all powers, and, Lord, you can do all things but fail.

So, Father, give us wisdom from on high. Help us to deliberate. Help us to be conscious and knowing that you're holding us all with accountability.

We pray for the sick and afflicted. We pray for the orphans. We pray for the destitute, Father. Make us more like thee and less of us.

And, Lord, however you do the things that you're going to do, we will surely give your name all the praise, all the glory, and all the honor.

This is our prayer. In Jesus' name, amen.
