Mayor says prayer is working in Yakima

Mayor says prayer is working in Yakima Yakima Herald
YAKIMA -- It's working, says Yakima Mayor Dave Edler. Just take a look around. From dropping crime rates to efforts to revitalize the downtown area, prayer is transforming this city, he says. "My sense is when the name of our city of Yakima is bouncing around the halls of heaven, God responds," says Edler, also the senior pastor of Yakima Foursquare Church, one of the largest evangelical churches in town. Edler will deliver the keynote address -- "How Prayer is Changing Yakima" -- at the annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast on May 1. The breakfast is held in celebration of the 2008 National Day of Prayer.
