"A lot of people fought and gave their lives for it, but God gave us the gift of this country to have a place to worship and I feel like America is forgetting that," said Tommy Lowery.
It also comes in the midst of violent uproar in communities across the Country.
"There's just so much violence," said Tommy Lowery.
They prayed for churches, families, law enforcement officials and city leaders across the nation. Albany's own City leaders, Commisioner B.J. Fletcher and Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler were guest speakers.
“I see so much grief and so much sorrow going on, the homicide cases, child death. I mean we need to be praying for one another because we are so blessed, we don't realize how blessed we are," said Michael Fowler.
"This is about God, this is about our community and that's the two things I love more than anything,” said B.J. Fletcher.
They ended the ceremony singing God Bless America reminding us of the sweet home we sometimes take for granted.
“We don't realize the importance of having God in our life and having God in our city because this could be a whole lot worse," said Michael Fowler.
