The rare violent and traumatic events that have happened to the Excelsior Springs community in the last three weeks is taking its toll on local citizens and emergency responders. That is why a group of local mothers opened the invitation for the community to join them during their regular prayer time. Over 50 citizens met to express concerns and lift up those suffering to God in prayer. The gathering provided local citizens, including State Representative Doug Richey and City Councilman Mark Spohn, an opportunity to speak to recent events and pray for families involved.
