STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on the National Day of Prayer

“Today, I joined people of many faiths to lift up our city in prayer, and to ask that we continue to give and receive the blessings of compassion and mercy, justice and peace, love and hope. Saint Augustine once wrote that we should ‘Pray as if everything depends on God, and work as if everything depends on you.’ This year’s National Day of Prayer is a timely reminder of the power we can discover in belief, and the importance of living our individual truths.”  — Mayor Eric Garcetti
