JACKSON, Tenn. — More than 100 people attended a prayer service in downtown Jackson to show their support of first responders, Monday evening. “It’s such a scary time in our world right now and we want to do all that we can to show our support,” Angela Snider, IF Gathering Local Leader said. IF Gathering is a global group that is asking one question…what if? “What if we believed God and what if we came together and what if we believed Him to really move in our country and then of course right here in Jackson,” Fran Thomas said, a coordinator of Monday’s prayer service. Monday’s service focused on protection for law enforcement, first responders, military, educators, and other community leaders. Madison County Sheriff John Mehr said he’s grateful to have this kind of support from the community during what he says is a stressful time for law enforcement. “Officers are being shot and law enforcement is being attacked, and we’re glad to see the community pull together and want to support and rally behind the first responders,” Sheriff Mehr said,”We’ve never seen this before in our lifetime and the number of officers being shot and killed.” Coordinators of the event welcomed all faiths to the service. “There’s not one title that’s on this, there’s not one person one church, one denomination we are just coming together as a body of believers,” Snider said. There were over 500 prayer services worldwide Monday evening to pray for their local communities. Some of the countries involved include Rwanda, Uganda, Japan, and Germany.
