A prayer for the city quotes
A Prayer for the City by H.G. BissingerA Prayer for the City is Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Buzz Bissingers true epic of Philadelphia mayor Ed Rendell, an utterly unique, unorthodox, and idiosyncratic leader who will do anything to save his city: take unions head on, personally lobby President Clinton to save 10,000 defense jobs, or wrestle Smiley the Pig on Hot Dog Day--all the while bearing in mind the eternal fickleness of constituents whose favor may hinge on a missed garbage pick-up or an overzealous meter maid.
It is also the story of citizens in crisis: a woman fighting ceaselessly to give her great-grandchildren a better life, a father of six who may lose his job at the Navy Shipyard, and a policy analyst whose experiences as a crime victim tempt her to abandon her job and ideals.
Heart-wrenching and hilarious, alive with detail and insight, A Prayer for the City describes a city on its knees and the rare combination of political courage and optimism that may be the only hope for Americas urban centers.

Like all other Christians, well and every other person in this world I HOPE , I am very displeased with the state that this world is in. Do you pray for your city? The state that the media industry is in. The state that my city is in, high rates of crime and senseless murder and violence. It deeply troubles me. When believers congregate we often sit and discuss these things and murmur and complain, at how the Lord has been pushed to the side in our societies, but what are you doing about it? What are you doing to make that city you are unhappy about better?
