Albany -- Many South Georgians gathered at the Albany Government Center Thursday, to pray for America.

More than 100 people gathered for the National Day of Prayer ceremony in downtown Albany. This is the 57th observance since President Harry Truman signed a law establishing the National Day of Prayer.

Community leaders led prayers for Government leaders, educators, businesses, churches, the media, military troops, and families. Many of the people who attended say prayer for our nation and it's leaders is essential. Albany First United Methodist Church Associate Minister Jim Coleman said "it's once a year. But it makes a great impact on so many Americans, to unite in prayer that way."

At the end of the prayers, balloons with prayer messages attached were let loose, to spread the prayers where God sees fit.
