Dozens made their way to Garrett Park to participate in their 2nd annual National Day of Prayer, to sing hymns and to pray for our country and military.
"As a veteran of three wars, it's an honor for me to be here that I can pray for my fellow comrades," said WWII vet, Korean War vet, Vietnam vet George Kestel.
During the National Day of Prayer, prayers go out to national officials, state officials, and local leaders as well. And a few local leaders here say they appreciate this and that it's very inspirational to see the support coming from the community.
"We need all the prayers that we can have mustered up to us and I just can't say enough about the National Day of Prayer," said Floyd County Judge Executive R.D. "Doc" Marshall.
"It just makes me feel good for the people to stand behind us," said Floyd County Magistrate Hattie Owens.
Pastors from several churches in the area also attended to pray for church leaders and the county's youth.
