FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) - Many gathered to pray in Ferguson today during a peaceful march from the site of teenager Michael Brown’s shooting along West Florissant to a local church.

They said they were praying not only for Mike Brown Jr., but for his mother, Lesley McSpadden.

Despite a curfew declared by Gov. Jay Nixon, some leaders have taken to Twitter and vowed to march just beyond the Ferguson border at midnight to continue their protest.
