The power of prayer



MAX and Suzanne Watters believe the power of prayer has saved the lives of motorists travelling through the Coffs Coast region these school holidays.

Mr and Mrs Watters are part of a prayer group who, for the past two years, have met every Tuesday at 7.30am at Beacon Hill, where they pray for the city of Coffs Harbour.

Mr Waters said Beacon Hill was chosen as the location as it looked over the city and acted as their 'gateway'.

He said the group was prompted to pray for the highway after last year's spate of fatalities.

"Before and during the holidays we prayed every day that there would be no deaths on our roads," Mr Watters said.

This is not the only group praying for safety on our roads, with a number meeting on various days at various locations through the region.
