HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) -- Dozens of people gathered for song and prayer in a showing of solidarity for the people of Boston following the deadly bombings Monday during the Boston Marathon.

Even as the service was in process federal, state and local law enforcement officials were  desperately searching for the suspect on the run who they say is one of the two men responsible for the bombing.

For Rocket City residents Friday night's service was about the healing process and showing people in Boston they are not alone they are in everyone's collective prayers.

The service was sponsored by the city’s Southeast Clergy Association and Interfaith Mission Service.
