PERRY, Ga. -- While others got ready to celebrate Independence Day, one group in Perry decided to take part in a city-wide prayer service.
The community gathered at the Georgia State Patrol office to pray for their city and the country.
Pastor of In-His Glory Praise and Worship Ministries James Parker hosted the prayer service.
"What inspired us is we got a lot going on, taking place throughout the nation, and the best thing is that prayer covers a whole lot of things. Prayer still works. So god inspired her and we got together and moved on the voice of the lord. God has been in the midst of the prayer every quarter, three times a year. The beginning of the year, the middle of the year and the end of the year," said Parker.
He said this was an opportunity for Christians to unite across denominational lines for prayer and fellowship.
