EVANS CO., GA (WTOC) -

Communities across our region and our country paused Thursday to take part in the National Day of Prayer.

In Evans County, folks gathered for their annual breakfast prayer service. Leaders took turns offering prayers for local teens and schools, community leaders, as well as the nation.

Organizers said the national day of prayer helps bring their community closer together.

“We see a mayor, a pastor, a business leader. And they come together and pray - different denominations, different backgrounds. It's just a great time each year that builds our community,” said Rev. Dr. Matt Brady.

U.S. Army Chaplain Captain Brian Mize served as the keynote speaker. This marks the community's fourth annual breakfast as part of the observance.
