Community Members Pray For Local Schools

Posted: Updated:

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn.- It was a spark that has turned into a blaze.  A Williamson County mother says the tragedy at Sandy Hook inspired her to reach out and pray for the schools in her own community.

Dozens met at schools across Williamson County Saturday morning. The event organized mostly through Facebook asked anyone willing to wake up early, to go to their nearest school and pray. They also walked around the schools 26 times in honor of the 26 killed in Sandy Hook.

Those in attendance say while it might seem like a small act, they believe it will have a big impact.

"God says where two or more are gathered together in unity he's in their midst. And we're gathered together in unity at this school, at all the other schools, and we believe that he is present here on these grounds, and we're asking him to protect our schools."

Organizer Audrey Curran says they plan to make the prayer walks a regular thing.
