The City Council will continue to begin with prayer, the council voted unanimously Wednesday night.

"If I get a cease-and-desist order from a judge who has jurisdiction over us, then I am going to stop praying. But I won't stop because of someone's opinion," City Councilman Randy Childs said.The council also passed a resolution to support any action that will ensure prayer at city council meetings is legal. Mayor Noal Greenwood said that would include supporting an amendment to the state constitution. "When they wrote the Constitution they opened that meeting in prayer," Greenwood said. "They had the idea of protecting religion from the government. Somewhere they got things turned around."
