Hundreds Gather for Prophetstown Prayer Service


Hundreds came together in Prophetstown Wednesday evening for a community prayer service. Pastors and ministers from every church in the community led the service as a way to get the community together and moving forward. 

Many members of the community picked up free t-shirts that were being handed out at the even that said "Prophet Strong." A t-shirt company in Kewanee donated 100 of the shirts to the community for free.

As the prayer service began, a line of fire trucks rolled into the town and the crowd broke into a round of applause.

The community then said prayers of gratitude, hope, strength and for the future of their town. After the prayer, the group of hundreds held hands and had a moment of silence in front of the demolished buildings in their downtown. One person started a chorus of "God Bless America" afterward. As the song came to a close, firefighters walked up to the buildings and started handing out loose bricks to members of the community.
