Albany -- South Georgians unite in prayer for the city and the region they love.

Friday morning more than 80 people gathered inside the Flint Riverqurium to mark their 40th day of prayer. For 40 days, people from all over South Georgia have gathered in downtown Albany for the early morning prayer service, praying for the development of downtown and the well-being of all South Georgia cities.

Many, who have been in the group since it started, say the gatherings have had a deep impact on their lives.

"We have seen such growth of love inside this group," says Molly Swan. "Everyday we gather not only to pray for our city but also for our leaders," says Swan.

The prayer group has been so fulfilling for those involved that they have decided to extend the 7:30AM prayer services indefinitely. Organizers say everyone is welcome to join.
