ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Nearly three dozen 30 people joined hands and prayed for blessings outside the Lee County jail Monday morning.

Sheriff Reggie Rachels was excited about the turnout. "It helps you get through the week and every day problems," said Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachels.

"I've been working in law enforcement quite a while, I've never seen anyone do prayer like we do here at the Lee County Sheriff office," said Sheriff's Sgt. Keaymonda Hollis.

"We need to fellowship with each other and come to Jesus and God together. That would in turn help the city, state and the people in it," Tara Wood said.

The group plans to meet every Monday at 7:30 am at the Lee County jail flag pole.
