Community gathers to pray for Myrtle Beach in 2016

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW)-     A new year can bring new challenges, which is why dozens of people met today at Myrtle Beach City Hall for the second annual Walk of Faith.

Community members prayed for what’s known as the Seven Mountains of Influence, business, churches, media, education, family and government.

Pastors from all along the Grand Strand participated in the event. People walked to Plyler Park and back to City Hall for prayer and worship. Organizer Tim McCray says it was a good turn out considering the chilly weather. He says Myrtle Beach could use prayer in 2016, to help tackle tough issues.

“We’re praying for issues that the city maybe facing like they did last year with Memorial Day Bike Week, facing homeless issues, facing our youth issues,” said McCray.

Spokesperson Mark Kruea says the city appreciates the support.

“Certainly prayer maybe necessary at times,” he stated.

About 15 churches attended the event. McCray says the turnout was smaller than last year because of the chilly weather, but he’s grateful for those who participated.
