"It's taken over my life," said Holly Jenkins, "It's hard because we all want answers, we all want to know something."
"We all miss her," started Misty Rich, who says everyone her family have taken Hailey's disappearance hard.
"There are nights we haven't been able to sleep [because we are] worrying about her."
Rich says she has become so worried, her kids no longer stay out playing late at night.
Still, many continue to focus on finding the missing teen.
"She's waiting for me to her. She's waiting for all of us to find her, and I just can't sit at home and let her wait," added Jenkins, at times on the verge of tears.
With the weight of the whole search on many shoulders, some see the night of prayer as a much needed break to refocus.
"We all need to gather strength and look for that higher power, who can deliver for us," said Bobbie Banks, a resident of Colorado City, as she and her husband entered the First Baptist Church of Colorado City gym.
"I know that prayer can get us through this."
"We can all get together and have a moment of prayer, and remember who we are here for. It helps bring all of the morale back," said Jenkins.
The search is far from over, at this point, and many took the time at the prayer vigil to pray for Hailey's family and friends, to find a renewed hope and strength to move forward.
