JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A local church held a prayer event all day Friday.

Community members were invited to attend the gathering at the Living Word Church, 6501 Southwest Dr., and pray for the nation with them.

"We love Jonesboro, the community we serve and the people the people that are in the community," said Sgt. Lane Holmes with the Jonesboro Police Department. "We just want them to know that we are out here every day working for them. And then to see the community kind of come back and thank us for the job that we love to do I think just completes the whole thing."

Pastor Denny Beavers says that anyone is welcome to stop by.

The service was held until midnight.
