ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany minister is leading a group in prayer every night next week in hopes of keeping kids off the streets and away from crime. 

John Clyde is the minister hosting the tent revival on Harman Avenue, which includes worship every night next week starting on Monday.

Clyde said he had gotten in trouble with the law in his past and now he wants to lead the five nights of prayer to help keep others from making those same mistakes.

"We're trying to make a difference with the people here in Albany, Georgia. And first of all, we know it's spiritual and we know they if they seek the Kingdom of God first, and all its righteousness and to go back to the old landmark, and we want to have a revival to tell the people that we can make a difference here in Albany, Georgia," said John Clyde, the minister and organizer of the tent revival. 

The week-long tent revivals will start on Monday at 7:30 p.m. at 617 Harmon Avenue.
