SOUTHFIELD, Mi. (TV 20 News at Ten) --- Metro Detroit Pastor Cecelia Greene Barr and dozens of her church members went on a mission to New York City to pray for America. But when they tried to do so at the 911 Memorial site and at a church they were told they couldn't pray.

But the group didn't give up and continued with their mission.

My TV 20's Jorge Avellan has their story.
