Lord Mayor bans "intrusive and outdated" Christian prayers
Mr Hall, who has just taken over the mayorship in Leicester, said the ‚Äúmajority‚ÄĚ of councillors and city council staff were not practising Christians therefore there was little point in having the prayers, which were introduced in 1997 and stopped for a year between 2005 and 2006.

"I am delighted to confirm that I will be exercising my discretion as Lord Mayor to abolish the outdated, unnecessary and intrusive practice.

"I personally consider that religion, in whatever shape or form, has no role to play at all in the conduct of council business. ...

My, my, it is strange that with a state church, England is in the wilderness when it comes to Christianity, as well as its schools! Schools leave Christianity in the wilderness. Trying to mix government with religion has always been a poison to Christianity.

If it's not "praying in the Spirit", it's not praying.

Perhaps one of the reasons prayer is disdained is because it is done as a Formality or with great Hypocrisy, as if to justify what is done, which in that case God would himself hate it, and the practice would be a mere superstition (like praying before an ungodly sporting event, as if God countenances such, as modern Churchianity thinks).

His decree could in fact, as by Providence he is "Lord Mayor" (though he be Beelzebub's servant), a sign of GOD'S JUDGMENT, as the verse says,

"It is time for judgment to begin with the household of God", which is what persecution in fact does, sifting all Christian professors.

This does not nullify that "rulers are to be just ruling in the fear of God", but rather strengthens it, by punishing hypocrisy in the modern antichristian church of "broad way" professors.

"Colin Hall said religion had no role to play in the conduct of council business."

It doesn't?

This guy is going to be made an example of by God for his actions.

"The country's first two presidents, George Washington and John Adams,
were firm believers in the importance of religion for republican government." --official Library of Congress statement

John Adams and John Hancock:
We Recognize No Sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus! [April 18, 1775]

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." --October 11, 1798

Ah, John Y., I think I have pointed out to you about various points of hypocrisy?

Matthew 6
5 "And when you pray, you are not to be as the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners, in order to be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
6 "But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you.---NASB

Some of the other gentlemen have pointed out the futility of these people praying, Prayer is for Christians.

There will be no point in these poor reprobates praying anyway.

Prov 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

Prov 15:29 The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

Prov 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

2nd Samuel 23:3
The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.

If there is no fear of God before these counsellors eyes, they'd be better looking for another job.

It is quite obvious that Hall's master is Satan if Hall is against having Christian prayers during meetings.
