LOWNDES COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - Lowndes County is praying for the victims of Hurricane Michael, literally. Officials will be hosting a prayer service for those affected by the storm.  

Later, the corner of West Central Avenue and North Patterson Street will be filled with community members thinking of those affected by Hurricane Michael.

Officiants are welcoming the community to come out to pray for the military and first responders, those re-located, volunteers, and the communities focused on recovery. 

"We want to ask for mercy on their predicament, certainly for speedy recovery, as well as let them know that here in Lowndes County, we're doing what we can to help," said Paige Dukes, Lowndes County Spokesperson. "They are certainly on our minds and will remain so until their lives are fully restored."  

Dukes said that although Lowndes County was spared, it is important that we share our support for those who weren't so lucky.

Officials believe prayer is something we can all do to help the victims, even for those unable to donate.

The service will begin at 6:30 p.m.
