Many joined together in Downtown Bakersfield to pray for the community’s well-being and leadership.
Locals reflected and sang during the event at the Liberty Bell.
Ken Frack, one of the coordinators for the prayer, says it’s needed especially with divisions seen and felt today.
“We’ve always had need for prayer, but the lack of unity is probably unprecedented in my lifetime in American culture,” he said.
Frack has been an organizer for the prayer for close to 30 years.
He says he believes, if nothing changes, the current atmosphere will have a negative impact on our future.
