YAKIMA, Wash. —

The Yakima City Council voted Tuesday to continue praying at meetings, although it plans to make changes to reduce the risk of getting sued.

KNDO reports the council directed the city attorney to draft a disclaimer saying the prayers are not intended to impose religion on anyone.

The council prayer has been challenged by the Freedom from Religion Foundation. The Madison, Wis., group promotes separation of church and state.
