MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) - Hundreds gathered in Marshall for a unique prayer rally.
Dozens of Christians gathered at the county courthouse at lunchtime to read the Bible from cover to cover. The Bible was divided into 125 sections and every verse was read aloud, simultaneously.
"[There is] nothing to be ashamed about if you love the word of the Lord," said William Hughley, a District Judge.
"We knew that when we started this that God was gonna be blessed today and I didn't want to miss that for anything," said Pam Bordelon
The event was sponsored by the Marshall Prayer Force.
