Members of the community joined together Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. to pray hand-in-hand in Sim Scott Park. The prayer movement is a peaceful, spiritual answer to the recent violence in the Friendly City.
Letters To The Editor – Northside holds prayer
Heads were bowed, prayers were lifted, boy and girl, men and women, the young and the old; this is what took place this past Tuesday at 5:30 at Sim Scott Park during the Prayer Meeting for our city. It was a movement started by some Columbus citizens and will continue every Tuesday at 5:30 at Sim Scott Park located on the northside of Columbus. It really moved my heart to see the community gather there for such a great cause and it made my heart smile to see the youth, as young as 3 years old, hold hands while agreeing to the prayer that went forth. There is hope for Columbus to become a better place. There is hope for the citizens in this city to get out of poverty. There is also hope our youth will stop the violence, put the guns down, and love one another. That hope begins with prayer. That hope extends throughout Columbus when we are united as a people who are determined to pursue positive change in our communities so that we can have peace and so that we can move forward into progressive development for our city. Blessings to our city.
