Prayer. It holds meaning, power, and an overwhelming sense of calm. We live in a world where it’s an uncommon sight to see it, much less in a public setting.


Today, community members, and local Pastors gathered at the gazebo in Mansfield square to come together as one and pray. The prayers included local towns, citizens, public officials, schools, local governments, first responder agencies, as well as national elements such as the President, our Armed Services, and a multitude of other focuses.

One vital element about today’s gathering is that It brought people together, at one time, in one place. These people prayed not for themselves, but humbly prayed for YOU.
