CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) - People gathered outside the Alcorn County courthouse united in prayer.

On Monday, volunteers started reading scripture on the courthouse's lawn. 

Volunteers alternated reading the Bible from beginning to end each day.

The goal is to finish the reading by 11 a.m. on Thursday, which will start the National Day of Prayer ceremony.

The day falls each year on the first Thursday of May.
