The department posted a photo on their Facebook page of Reverend Lee Jenkins and other church leaders praying for Roswell's officers, including Grant, who was "overwhelmed by the love and support he felt from the friends in attendance."
In response, Eagles Nest Church reposted the photo on their Facebook page and wrote: "We, too, are overwhelmed by your clear investment in making things better for us all."
Zion Missionary Baptist Church also posted a powerful photo of the congregation on their Facebook page Sunday. "The power of prayer is real," the post read.
After the fatal shooting of two black men by police last week and then of the five officers by a black man in Dallas Thursday, Atlanta protesters called for a change and end to police brutality when they marched through downtown Atlanta Friday evening.
Atlanta's demonstrations, unlike the protest in Dallas, were mostly peaceful.
One protester told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a previous report that " ... more than anything, we are trying to build a positive relationship between us and police."
