COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — With COVID-19 cases at an all-time high for young people, people of faith are praying for the virus to spare students in the Wiregrass.
People from various faiths gathered on Sunday at each school campus in Enterprise and Coffee County for prayer walks.
Since the March 1, 2007 tornado killed 8 students at the old Enterprise High School, people of faith have prayed at the start of the school year.
But with COVID, the prayer warriors didn’t enter the buildings, instead, they held prayer walks.
“We just thank you for this opportunity, we give you all the praise and all the glory God in Jesus’ name,” New Brockton High School graduate Corbin Griffin said.
For those who participated in the prayer walk, they believe God’s hand will have a direct impact on ridding the campuses of COVID as well as the country and the world.
“I believe that God can help with COVID or anything else we serve a good that’s more than able. And we come here and pray,” local Pastor Anthony Sherrer said.
Prayers went out to God to spare the students and faculty from COVID, but also from natural or manmade disasters as well.
