Pray Main Street America

Prayer March 2020 was held on Saturday, September 26 in Washington D.C. There were numerous prayer events throughout the country to coincide with Franklin Graham’s call to prayer.

“So let’s join together and do the most important thing, and that is to pray. We’re going to pray that God will intervene and save this nation.” Franklin Graham

One prayer “march” took place on our own Main Street in Hesperia, California. The event was called “Pray Main Street America”.

Main Street, Hesperia

From I Avenue to Escondido Avenue groups of Christians came together to pray from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Male, female, adult, and child prayed for our nation, state, city, church leaders, police department, fire department, first responders, hospitals, teachers, parents, children—all individuals of the High Desert were covered in prayer. There were 21 churches represented and over 150 people.

C Avenue

I spoke with the prayer group, which stood on the corner of C Avenue. One this corner there were individuals from Redeemer Church in Apple Valley, Hesperia Community Church, Hesperia Church of Nazarene, and the Little Country Christian Church in Hesperia. All were joyful and spoke with well-satisfied tones.

It was a peaceful morning with supporters who drove by honking horns and even a mother with her son came by with a sign that said “Jesus loves you”. Even the weather cooperated! It was a cooler morning for the Victor Valley with clear blue skies and the smoke was minimal from the nearby Bobcat and El Dorado fires. The group prayed and worshipped throughout the two hours of the event.

“We lift our voices. I think the whole group [was] filled with the Spirit because it was amazing. You know, God was just speaking through us through our prayers,” said one participant.

 

I Avenue

On I Avenue, Larry Bird, Mayor of Hesperia, gathered with a group of 15 to pray. He and his wife decided to participate because they “wanted to join with our Christian brothers and sisters around the country to pray for our country and our community that we would come together and that revival would spread throughout our land. We couldn’t be in Washington DC to be with Franklin Graham but we could be in the corners of Hesperia!”

Invitation to Pray

Darrell Long is the organizer of Pray Main Street America. “Main Street” meaning that it is any street that goes through the main area of a city. He put the event together because just like Franklin Graham, agrees that our nation needs prayer desperately. “There is hurt everywhere and a revival in our faith and dependence on God is needed.”

Long reflected, “Saturday was a great and glorious day to exalt GOD. [There were] 22 churches, 150 prayer warriors, one salvation.”

If you are interested in joining the next High Desert Pray Main Street America it is scheduled for Saturday, October 31 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. Please register at Pray Main Street America.

Please make sure to social distance during events and wear your personal protective equipment. Also, do not bring or wear any political hats, shirts, or signs. You may bring American and Christian flags or signs that read “Pray America”.
