KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Market Square was filled with prayer Friday evening as several people gathered for a 'praytest' to pray for peace and unity.

Several people, including officers with the Knoxville Police Department, stood with heads bowed as they prayed for love and understanding. 

"If we all work together we can make it a better place, but we can't work against each other," volunteer Jason McGill said. 

After the prayer, organizers handed out food to people in need.
