The title is not a misprint. More than 200,000 people attended the recent PraySA events held in-person and online in San Antonio, Texas. MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND! God is up to something big in our city.

The Beacon had the opportunity to interview one of organization’s leaders, Tammy Watts, about the calling behind PraySA, testimonies from the event and what’s coming next.

PraySA Event Background. Multiple churches and ministries joined together to host a good, old-fashioned, city-wide prayer meeting this past August 9th and 16th at the Freeman Coliseum on the east side of our city. With the pandemic, racial strife, violent protests happening around the country and division around the election; the leadership echoed what many of us are feeling… enough is enough… its time to pray!

Based on the foundation of 2 Chronicles 7:14, this historic gathering united thousands who joined together to humble themselves, repent and cry out to God to heal our land. Our country’s current circumstances reveal a great brokenness and divide. We are desperate. We need prayer. The repentance witnessed at this unprecedented event was real. The Lord heard our prayers. Now we wait on Him to do what only He can do. Stay tuned!
