The Hattiesburg Police Department said their officers ate the majority of the donuts, but the event was a neat day to acknowledge the day’s significance.

National Day of Prayer is a time for individuals of all faiths to come together in prayer, contemplation, and solidarity.

The police department said,

“In all seriousness, we want to highlight the importance of this day – a day of prayer, reflection and unity. We hope you will join us in recognizing today’s day of prayer as we strive to garner hope, strength and enlightenment within our community.”
