Moultrie -- If anyone knows how badly we need rain, it's the farmers.   So on Thursday, the last day of the Sunbelt Ag Expo, the crowds paused to pray.  

All activity stopped at noon while the 60,000 guests and exhibitors prayed for divine intervention in the drought.    

"We thank you Lord for the moments you have given us here today, just to pause and stop in our busiest..." went the prayer.

While sunny skies typically mean better business for the Expo, officials say farmers' needs outweigh their own.
