MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

More than two dozen pastors, community leaders and citizens gathered at the Pelican Landing Convention Center in Moss Point for a prayer meeting Tuesday. The event was called Prayer Meeting for Prosperity 2016.

Those in attendance turned to the power of prayer to lift up and encourage city leaders, county officials, police officers, firefighters and the youth.

Moss Point Mayor Billy Broomfield was among those in attendance. The group prayed over him, asking for wisdom and courage as he leads the city.

Singing was also a part of the uplifting morning.

Special attention was given to the youth. Pastors said today's youth need guidance, positive role models and constant prayer.

Encouraged by the turnout, organizers would like to make it a monthly event.

Steve Phillips will have more on the uplifting story tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
