CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

In the wake of Monday's tragedy in Boston, there has been no shortage of support and condolences being sent out to those that were affected.

In fact, a local church held a special prayer group in honor of those victims Tuesday afternoon.

"Jesus tells us men are to always pray and never lose heart," said Senior Pastor Donald G. Leavell of the Corpus Christi Christian Fellowship. "Our prayers prevail."

Leavell led a group of 12 in prayer Tuesday afternoon. The group was actually comprised of folks from various countries around the world. They prayed for peace, the healing of the injured and the protection of the nation.
