Prayers for people, leaders, churches, schools and the community were laid at the 40-yard line of the Brickyard Wednesday night.
Nearly 175 people from across the McDuffie County came together to talk less and pray more in a community-wide prayer service.
"Prayer is the best kept secret weapon that Christians have," said Pastor Keith Kurtz, of the Vine Community Church. ""We don't use it enough and I am ready for a change in our nation, our homes, our churches and our communities."
Pastors and church members from across Thomson and McDuffie County led the audience in a variety of prayers and asked God to allow their prayers to be a agent that brings revival and a return of God's glory to the community.
The community-wide service was originally scheduled for Sat., Sept. 8 at the Brickyard, but rainstorm with lightning led organizers to reschedule the event for Wednesday.
