The Pentagon now says 37 Americans have been killed in the Iraqi war. Fourteen are listed as missing, and seven as captured.

It's those statistics that many Stateliner's are praying stop.

A special ceremony was held to pray for soldiers in the north, south, east and west. Many gathered Sunday at the Puri Peace Plaza for a memorial for those killed in the war.

The Rockford Urban Ministries organized the prayer service. Those who attended say they aren't for war, but support our troops and pray they return home safely.

Flowers, candles and signs were also brought to the ceremony.
