PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- In a little church in North Turner - A small congregation that welcomes all denominations... Gathers over song and prayer for all of the victims of the Boston bombings.

"Prayer is powerful. It matters. And coming together as a group, lighting a candle, singing a song," says Pastor Lissa Bradford. "It makes a difference."

A difference for Butch Quimby.

"I lost my son in a bad accident," says Quimby."The results are the same as these people there."

In hopes of easing the grief for Quimby, and for Boston, the North Turner Union Presbyterian Church prays.

"There is something we can do about it. There is something everybody can do about it," saysPastor Bradford."And that is, that no matter what you believe in, who you believe in, what the god looks like in your own spirit and in your heart... To pray to that power, to pray to that god and ask for peace. And ask for help."
