HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Prayer vigils are planned across the nation to honor those who were affected by the bombs that went off near the Boston Marathon’s finish line Monday afternoon.

As Bostonians began to recover from the bomb explosions that killed at least three people and injured more than 140, churches, community centers, universities and other buildings will be open nationwide and transformed into a place for those who wish to pray for the city of Boston and the victims of the bombings.

Boston’s Cathedral of St. Paul, a downtown Episcopal church, is scheduled to be open Tuesday for a special prayer service for victims at 12:15 p.m., EST. with its neighboring Park Street church, scheduled to be open for prayer at noon, EST.

On Twitter, the hashtag #prayforBoston grew as many sent messages of love and encouragement to the victims of Monday’s blasts:

According to the Orlando Sentinel, a prayer vigil for Boston has been scheduled for Tuesday at noon, EST at Rollins College.

United Parish in Brookline, Massachusetts has also scheduled a prayer service for victims that is to begin at noon, EST on Tuesday.

In Texas, The University of Texas Tower bells are scheduled to be played to honor victims of the Boston Marathon bombings Tuesday afternoon.
