Update: 4:06PM THE Centenary Church came to a standstill at midday as only sounds of cries could be heard from family members of the 45 Fijian soldiers held hostage by Syrian militants.

More than 500 people turned up for the prayer vigil led by the president Reverend Tevita Nawadra.

The 45 candles were lit by wives, children and family members of the soldiers.

Church general secretary Reverend Epineri Vakadewavosa reminded them that God is their source of strength and their shelter in times of need.
