Albany- As the U.S. faces the threat of war, no family member wants to hear the news their loved ones have to go so far away. Members of Bethel A.M.E. church say there's a way to find comfort.
Pastor Ernest Davis says, "Because of our faith and the church and because we do believe strongly in prayer. We believe in divine intervention."
Many of the members at Bethel A.ME. say while they can't be with the troops physically, they're sending the power of prayer, and Pastor Ernest Davis says it's prayer that will help keep the troops safe.
Davis adds, "Prayer is the most powerful weapon we have in our arsenals as believers." Sarah Gray has been a member for sixty-one years, and she says her husband fought in World War II, but her prayers brought him home.
Gray says, "My husband had to go to war and I prayed, and the Lord sent him back to me." Young members, like Brandon Hosley, say many people who graduated from his high school have already left the country. Hosley adds, "We're concerned they're going to be overseas and that they can handle it at a young age."
Members of the congregation says they will continue to clasp their hands and bow their heads, hoping constant prayers will keep U.S. troops out of harm's way.
