PARADISE, Calif. -- Several churches in the North State organized a national day of prayer event in Paradise.
The event was held at the Paradise Recreation Center.
People listened to a message of hope and prayed.
"I feel that we need to do something like this because when we gather, there is hope. When we gather and we love one another there is strength and in the community, it can revive. We're meant to work together, the whole intention is to bring hope," said Meriam Gleason, an event organizer.
If you missed this event, but would like to attend, the event will continue every day until this Sunday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
