CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – The Scenic City Women’s Network hosted a prayer walk and prayer service on the steps of the old Hamilton County Courthouse.

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann read a proclamation saying, “by the congressman of the third district of Tennessee National Day of prayer and on behalf of the Scenic City Women’s Network in remembrance of the lives taken on September 11, 2001 and expression of the patriotic spirit. They are vigilant in the hearts of Tennessee and all Americans.”

Mayor Jim Coppinger spoke about honoring those who put their lives on the line for the freedom to gather like this.

He says “once again, we have the opportunity today to be able to speak freely and pray freely about things that are near and dear to our hearts.”

A speaker read the scripture “My people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face,” before ending the service in prayer.

He prayed, “We are comforted by the fact that you do hear our prayers. This is not just time that is wasted this time, it is well spent. We praise you in Jesus Christ Name We Pray. Amen.”

The prayer walk was held before the ceremony.
