JONES COUNTY, Miss. - National Prayer Day took place across the country Thursday.
The Jones County Sheriff's Department among with many in the community gathered at the Jones County Courthouse to worship and pray.
Cary Kimbrell, National Prayer Day coordinator said, "It's very satisfying that the Christians can come together for prayer because when there is a common issue and a common enemy outside, it pushes us together. So, we've come together and it's very fulfilling and joyful that we're able to come together as a community."
Kimbrell said they have been doing this since the early 50's.
