GERMANTOWN, TN (WMC) - One man is proving that a video of students praying is far more powerful than images of violence.
Facebook user Kelvin Gee posted the video of students praying at Germantown High School to his page. His caption on the story seemed to express the entire sentiment of the piece, "Can young people praying at at school go viral instead of violence?"
Hundreds of students circled the flag pole at GHS on Wednesday, hands joined and heads bowed in prayer.
"God, we love you, we honor you, we are here for you, God," the speaker in the video said as students prayed around him. "God, we are making a difference, one student at one time God."
The speaker went on to express a hope that the prayer circle would continue every single Wednesday.
The video ended with a resounding "Amen" from all present.
But this isn't the first time that Mid-South high school students haven't been afraid to show their faith. On the first day of school at Melrose High School, students circled the flag pole in prayer. A passing driver caught the image and posted it to Facebook. Redzone Ministries made the prayer a weekly event, every Monday at 6:45 a.m.
The Germantown High School video earned more than 71,000 reactions and 3,800 shares in just 17 hours, proving that people around the Mid-South agreed with Kelvin's sentiment.
