So a church in Detroit actually had a service where the focus of the meeting was praying for God to somehow intervene in saving America’s automakers. I realize that they also were praying for the employees and families that might be affected if a bailout plan wasn’t approved, but there is no doubt they were looking for a miracle.
“We have done all that we can do in this union, so I turn it over to the Lord,” General Holiefield, a U.A.W. vice president for Chrysler, told the crowd. A vice president for the parts suppliers, James Settles Jr., asked those present “to continue your prayers, so we can see a miracle next week.”
