A prayer service was held outside of Birmingham, Ala., Wednesday to offer encouragement to tornado survivors, rescuers, and volunteers.
Minor Heights Fire Department Chaplain Johnny Crumpton prayed God's love would comfort the survivors. He also encouraged people to remember God is still in control. 

"We've got a hold of him, but the most important thing I want you to understand is He's never let go of us," Crumpton prayed, speaking from the steps of Katherwood Baptist Church.

"He's always got a hold of you. He's always got a hold of your family. Even in times like this," he said.

Last week's storm spawned a swath of twisters that killed more than 300 people in seven southern states.

"I want you to understand one thing," Crumpton told the gathering. "It's not God's plan for you just to survive during this time. Not just to survive. But His plan for each and every one of you is to thrive during this time."
