BALTIMORE — Baltimore residents showed their support for the families and victims of the tragic shootings in El Paso and Dayton on Monday.

Liberty Seventh-Day Adventist Church held a prayer vigil and called for an end to gun violence across the country.

Organizers of 'prayer explosion revival' are also calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the senate to pass tougher gun laws.

"We are calling folk to pray for America, pray for our leadership and pray for Baltimore," Pastor Mark McCleary said. "We're praying that not only will God touch the hearts of men, women and citizens of Baltimore, but we want to see tha love abide and God spirit will be evident."

Pastor McCleary invites anyone who wants to pray to come out and join them. The church will have a revival every night at 7:15 p.m. until Saturday.
