Molly Shore HILLSIDE -- "God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world, The better the world will be."

Now, more than a century later, the chaplain's words will be remembered at a community-wide Concert of Prayer set for 6 p.m. Sunday at Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church of Burbank.
