FORT THOMAS, Ky. - The community of Fort Thomas came out to "Pray for Clay" Wednesday night at Highland United Methodist Church.
Clay Frink, 16, was hit by a car Monday afternoon at the intersection of Highland and North Fort Thomas Ave. He sustained brain injury and is recovering in intensive care with an uncertain prognosis.
During Wednesday's prayer service, participants addressed the questions of "Why?" and "How will God answer our prayers?" Words of encouragement, cards, letters and notes for Clay were also used during the service to help Clay during his recovery.
Jamie Kallmeyer didn't know Frink personally, but wanted to support him regardless.
"I believe in the power of prayer," she said. "I've seen a lot of miracles in my own family and felt it was important to come together as a community and support his family."
Pastor Larry Karow organized the service for the boy, who dedicated his spare time to the church.
"When one person in our community suffers through tragedy, it's important that the community have an opportunity to come and share and give their outpouring of support for Clay and his family," he said.
Carly McMann never met Frink, but attended the prayer service. She was the person who called 911 after witnessing the accident.
"I stayed there and prayed and helped with everyone who was there and tried to get answers as to what was going on," she said.
