Albany- Loved ones who are far away serving in the military are not forgotten at one Albany church.

Byne Memorial Baptist Church has constructed a prayer wall. There's a flag representing each branch of the armed services as well as the state flag and the Blue Star flag.

Church members are posting the names and addresses of family overseas so people can pray for them. Stan Halstead says, "There was one family who has a grandson went to area and prayed and wept. That caused a gathering to surround them, the response has been tremendous."

Members are also writing to the servicemen and women letting them know they are praying for them. The church is paying for the postage. This Sunday, 40 more names will be put on the wall.
