Albany - For 32 years, Albany community leaders have meet to pray for the city and the man who leads it. At 6:30 Thursday morning, more than 100 people gathered for the Mayor's prayer breakfast.

They held hands and prayed for the success of the city. The spotlight this year, was on sports. UGA Football Chaplain Kevin Hynes spoke to the group about believing and turning to the Bible for guidance.

Kevin "Chappy" Hynes says, "We need to continue to love God and love people and I think this brings people together and I love it.".

Dee Matthews says, "It was great to look out and see the whole community, the total community together. The young, the old, the blacks, the whites in the love of Jesus Christ and each other and I think that will bring our community together."

The Albany Dougherty National Prayer Committee, or ALDON, organized the breakfast. They also are already planning the national day of prayer, which is the first Thursday in May and will be held at the Government Center.
