09:03:09 Lord, may we guide this City Council in the proper
09:03:12 direction to benefit the citizens of this county and

09:03:16 And during our budget deliberations, may common sense
09:03:20 prevail in our decisions, to better the conditions of
09:03:23 our city.
09:03:24 May we bless our troops serving throughout the world,
09:03:27 and that they may come home safe to their loved ones.
09:03:31 May we protect our policemen, our firemen who would be
09:03:34 in harm's way during the performance of their duties.
09:03:37 May our governor, our state legislators, act in a
09:03:40 productive way so the end result will benefit the
09:03:45 citizens of this great state.
09:03:47 I would also like to include all the tragedies that
