Street Evangelist Tom Alexander At California’s State Capitol And Praying For The State’s Governor And Political Leaders.

CHURCH ON THE STREETS. That’s what it feels like every time Street Evangelist Tom Alexander begins a cross walk throughout one of Bakersfield’s official neighborhoods, as well as throughout the hundreds of other California cities he’s walked the cross in. Whether it’s our nation’s second largest city, Los Angeles, or a popular coastal city like Santa Monica, people respond whenever they see the 10 foot, 60-pound cross coming their way. Cross Walk California has resulted in hundreds of thousands of men, women and children not only seeing the cross on their residential streets, on their way to work, at the school they attend, or hoisted upright at their city’s police station as Tom prays for our thin blue line; but thousands have also rededicated their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ! Just as true, scores of thousands have come up to Tom and the cross and asked for prayer for themselves, for loved ones, or for the nation in general. Countless numbers have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior right there on the streets. And, of course, Church On The Streets is always just a prayer away from great revival taking place in that city! Continue reading to learn about CROSS WALK AMERICA: PRAY USA

National Day of Prayer 2020

SEE YOU AT THE CROSS PORTLAND!

Posted by Tom Alexander on August 23rd, 2020

JOIN ME IN PRAYER FOR PORTLAND MONDAY AUGUST 31

If you are a Christian living in Portland, Oregon, I invite you to join me Monday, August 31 at the downtown areas of nightly riots and violent  demonstrations, assaults and attacks against law enforcement officers — to pray for an end to these violent insurgencies and Satanic-incited traducements. I should be downtown and near SW 2nd Street and SW Madison Street around 11 A.M.

You can’t miss me. I will be lugging a 10-foot, 60-pound cross throughout the area, and stopping at strategic spots like city parks, City Hall and street corners to hoist the cross upright and pray long and hard against the Satanic forces of evil that hover over this area, as well as against the unchecked violence against Portland’s Thin Blue Line and the huge downtown area as well.

If you have any questions, contact me at Tom@WalkTheCross.com

Portland, Oregon needs our prayers! Violent rioters and insurgents have clashed with police nightly for almost three months. City leaders seem impotent as to stopping this continuous assault on downtown and especially the city’s law enforcement buildings.

In 2016 I walked the cross throughout the exact areas of these nonstop nightly attacks and assaults against Portland’s Thin Blue Line and prayed long and hard in Portland in the summer months for their protection and for the city’s 665,000 souls as well.

But it’s time to return.

I REPEAT: You can’t miss me. I will be lugging a 10-foot, 60-pound cross throughout the area, and stopping at strategic spots like City Hall to hoist the cross upright and pray long and hard against the Satanic forces of evil that hover over this area, as well as against the unchecked violence against Portland’s Thin Blue Line and the huge downtown area as well.

SEEE YOU AT THE CROSS! Again if you have any questions, contact me at Tom@WalkTheCross.com

HOW I PRAY AT EACH STATE, STATE CAPITAL AND EVERY OTHER AMERICAN CITY AND TOWN

Posted by Tom Alexander on August 18th, 2020

PART ONE

AN ONGOING MOVEMENT, NOT A FLASH IN THE PAN MOMENT

In Christ, Mission Impossible Becomes Mission Difficult Becomes Mission Feasible Becomes Mission Possible Becomes Mission Accomplished!

Cross Walk America: Pray USA commenced in Sacramento, California on September 11, 2015, on the fourteenth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. On July 26, 2020, Albany, New York, the last of all 50 state capitals and states, was cross walked and prayed for!

And, although this segment of Cross Walk America: Pray USA to pray at each state capital has been accomplished in Christ, this national cross walk will continue as an ongoing mission until even America’s largest cities have been cross walked and prayed for as well!

Fifty states, 50 state capitals, 50 other American cities, as well as 155 California cities and towns later (since 2006), I have finally found the time to share how I pray at each state and state capital.

The divine purpose of bringing a ten-foot cross to each state and state capital and praying hard, loud and long was—and continues to be—fourfold:

(1) To make the name of Jesus the Messiah famous in America…again!

(2) To pray for and intercede on the behalf of our nation’s 330 million souls.

(3) To pray for our nation’s federal, state, county and local elected officials.

(4) To kickstart nationwide revival throughout our ravaged land. Read the rest of this entry »

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part Four: My Last Day In The Last Frontier

Posted by Tom Alexander on August 15th, 2019

There is no stronger witness for Jesus than youth and young adults who are aflame and on fire and with a readiness to share God’s Good News to all.

As shared in Part Three, meeting up with Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) summer missionaries  during July’s Alaska Cross Walk was quite a blessing and inspiration. Much like the YWAM (Youth With A Mission) staff and students I had met during the Hawaii Cross Walk in May, I found these young adults to be on fire for the Lord Jesus Christ.

WALKING THE WALK AND TALKING THE TALK

These CRU summer missionaries took up the 10-foot cross naturally and with a zeal and excitement in Christ that expressed to all around them their love for God. Since the Alaska Cross Walk, I have made Facebook friends with many of these young people, just as I did with the YWAMers in Honolulu. I understand just how important it is for God to raise up a new generation of street evangelists, street preachers and street missionaries who are not afraid to share their faith in Christ with any and all people they meet on the streets—or anywhere else for that matter.

These young missionaries were the real thing! And as much as I would have loved to spend another week in Juneau just to fellowship with these young people and walk the cross with them throughout the capital city’s neighborhoods and streets, this would be my last day in Juneau.

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part Three THE CROSS WALKS BEGIN

Posted by Tom Alexander on August 1st, 2019

I have been to 41 states and state capitals, but I fell in love with this city and its people. God has blessed this entire area with captivating terrain and beauty.

PRAYING FOR ALASKA’S ELECTED POLITICAL LEADERS

God’s number one goal for me whenever I walk the cross in any state and especially at each state capital is for me to hoist that 10-foot, 60-pound cross upright at that state’s capitol mall and pray hard and long for every elected official, and especially its governor and state senators and representatives.

God isn’t concerned about that elected official’s political party. Rather, He is very interested in the heart of that state official. Because if  that elected official’s heart isn’t right with God, the people will suffer, and there will be chaos and confusion in that state.

No matter the state, my prayer is always the same: “LORD God Almighty, bless these elected officials with the knowledge of Your will for their lives, and let them make decisions that glorify You and Your righteousness. If they are not willing to govern in righteousness and truth, replace them with those who will.”

BLESSED ARE THE PEOPLE WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD

Praying hard and long for Alaska’s elected officials at the capitol building.

The Alaska capitol building’s main entrance was under repair, so I walked slightly to the side of the entrance, hoisted the large cross upright by the replica Liberty Bell and prayed for Governor Mike Dunleavy, that (1) his heart would be right with God concerning every decision he makes, no matter what it would take; (2) that he would listen to God’s promptings, as well as being sensitive to the needs and the wishes of the people; and (3) that Governor Dunleavy would be a witness of God’s great love and concerned for all the people of Alaska.

As is my custom, I prayed at each entrance, asking the living God to pour out His Spirit of Righteousness upon all elected individuals and throughout the entire political arena of the state of Alaska, and that each would give their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.

I pray loud and long, and people do stand around and listen as I pray. After praying, I always beckon onlookers to come over so I can share why I am praying, as well as the purpose of the cross walk. Often, I get to pray with men and women who have been praying for their elected leaders and their state for years, and who are very happy to join with me in prayer. Such was the case in Juneau.

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part Two THE CROSS AND THE HOTEL

Posted by Tom Alexander on July 31st, 2019

GOD’S GRACE LIKE RAIN POURING OUT UPON THE CITY OF JUNEAU

Grace isn’t just a salvation gift of unmerited favor from God. It is also a divine Holy Spirit empowerment and enduement that gives believers both the desire and ability to do God’s will.

The 10-foot, 60-pound cross was now constructed. Home Depot in Juneau became part of the Alaska cross walk when the hardware store allowed me to build the cross inside their premises. As mentioned in Part One, two employees even helped in the construction of the cross!

A “Godincidence” took place immediately after I walked the cross to outside the store’s exit. To my complete surprise, a taxi drove up at the very moment I left the store. You can read about this genuine and awesome angelic encounter in Part One.  And, although I have had two other powerful encounters with LORD Sabaoth’s “ministering spirits sent by God to aid those who are heirs to salvation” (Hebrews 1:14), this “angelophony,” or visible manifestation of an angel of God, was completely unexpected.

But this is so God! And this is God’s grace to His people in time of great need. I was willing to walk the cross seven miles to my downtown hotel room. But God knew I needed His help. SO HE SENT THAT HELP.

GOD MUST REALLY BE WITH YOU

At Home Depot and getting ready to transport the large cross to my downtown motel.

Jeanetta was the taxi cab driver. Told her my wife’s name was Jeanette and she smiled really big. As we drove toward the motel, Jeanetta shared that she was 69-years-old, had just lost her husband two years previously, and to keep herself busy she took up driving a taxi fourteen hours a day, five days a week. On the weekends, she visited her grandchildren.

Of course, we talked about the young man she had dropped off at Home Depot. “He was an angel, you know.” Jeanetta’s voice quivered with excitement mixed with reverent fear. “He told me he was supposed to meet someone at Home Depot.” I was still caught up in the Spirit, so I just listened. “God must really be with you,” Jeanetta continued. “And you have come here to pray for our city and state. That’s awesome!”

Jeanetta did most of the talking as we drove to my downtown hotel. I was very content just to take in everything that had taken place, a big smile on my “faith.” We reached my motel, unloaded the cross in the middle of the busy street, and I reached in my pocket to pay her. “It’s already taken care of,” she informed me, her smile just getting bigger and bigger. “You are doing more for our city than what money can buy.” I stood speechless, smiling all the while. “God bless you with a very successful mission.” With that, Jeanetta jumped into her cab and took off.

Franklin Street is Juneau’s main street. It was overflowing with traffic. But I just stood there in awe. Read the rest of this entry »

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part One BUILDING THE CROSS

Posted by Tom Alexander on July 29th, 2019

WALKING AND TRAVELING BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT

State and State Capital #41. The Last Frontier.

On July 26 as my flight landed at Juneau International Airport from Seattle and via Los Angeles around 10:15 P.M., I had plenty on my mind. My number one concern was, How and where was I going to construct the large cross for the 5-day cross walk?

The cross would be just like the one I had made in Honolulu, Hawaii back in May, a replica of the 10-foot, 60-pound cross that Jeanette and I have brought to thirty-nine of our nation’s contiguous states so far. Just like in Hawaii, I couldn’t bring the large cross on my flight. But unlike Hawaii, I didn’t have a place to construct the Alaska cross. In Hawaii, I stayed at the large YWAM (Youth With A Mission) compound). Here, I was staying at a downtown Juneau hotel.

Taking a taxi to my hotel room, I unpacked before calling it a night. God’s plan for me of how and where building the cross would take place began to unfold in my mind as I drifted into a very pleasant sleep. The last thing I thought of before falling asleep is a phrase that encourages me every time I read or think of it: FAITH DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. IT MAKES MIRACLES.

THE FULL PANOPLY OF GOD AND MUCH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT: A SOUL-DIER OF THE CROSS

To be strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might, we must put on and take up the full panoply of God—and eat much fruit of the Spirit.

I awoke at 5:oo to an early and beautiful light fog and misty-rain Juneau  morning. It was already light. After showering, I ate the breakfast food my life-wife, Jeanette, had packed for me, read my Bible, and spiritually put on and took up the 7-part panoply (armor and armaments) of God as detailed in Ephesians 6 and then spiritually ate much fruit of the Spirit (the nine fruit of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5). Anytime and every time I walk the cross, I first put on and take up the full panoply of God and eat much fruit of the Spirit to prepare myself for the upcoming battle for souls in the diverse and large fields of souls.

Jesus Himself shared in John 15 the four degrees of fruit-bearing: no fruit, fruit, more fruit and much fruit. The full panoply of God is extremely powerful but unless I had an abundance of agape-love pouring out of my Spirit, I have noticed that I sometimes come across as an uncaring, insensitive and brash believer rather than  a caring, compassionate and sensitive street evangelist. I ALWAYS FEEL THE DIFFERENCE EACH TIME I FIRST ARMOR UP AND EAT MUCH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.

THE DIVINE PLAN OF GOD: LET’S DO THIS!!

Brought these with me. All I needed now was the wood and a place to make the large cross.

As always, God gave me His plan. To a degree, it didn’t make any sense at all. But then again…faith doesn’t make sense; it makes miracles! But I knew where I was going this morning. After contacting a a taxi service, I waited downstairs and outside my hotel. With the cross wheel assembly and cross-making hardware in hand, I took in the street scene as I waited for the cab.

As I waited, I noticed a young man a few few feet away who also seemed to be waiting for someone. I waved and greeted him. “Beautiful morning in Juneau.” He smiled and nodded in agreement. Clean cut and about thirty-years-old, he seemed hesitant to take up a conversation. So I gave him the thumbs-up signal and waited for my cab to arrive, all the while noticing that he just stood there, occasionally looking at me and then turning away.

My cab arrived, so I waved at the young man once more, then hopped into the taxi. After sharing with the driver my destination, for some reason I looked around toward where the young man was standing. NOBODY THERE!! That is odd, I thought, as the cab entered the street and began the seven-mile journey to Home Depot.

CROSS WALK HAWAII (Part Four) Waikiki Beach Part Two—The Cross Walk With YWAM Staffers

Posted by Tom Alexander on June 26th, 2019

YWAM staffers, Billy, Ethan, Jessie and Paul load up the cross in preparation for the three mile journey to Waikiki Beach.

The Friday morning solo cross walk of Waikiki Beach was awesome, and I especially liked the opportunity of walking the cross all the way back to the YWAM base after cross walking Waikiki.  After the three hour Waikiki Beach cross walk, the trek back to the Base was a very long and uphill 3-mile cross walk. But I made it! And this also gave me the opportunity to pray for many individuals as I walked that long trek back to the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) base.

Because the University of Hawaii  wasn’t far from the WYAM base, the walk back gave me the opportunity to walk throughout the large college and pray for Great Awakening and Great Revival to breakout among the popular college’s 18,000 students.

HALLELUJAH HONOLULU AND THE WARMTH OF THE SON

Saturday came fast. Loading up the cross on the SUV (like a surfboard), four YWAM staff members—Billy, Ethan, Jessie and Paul—and I headed for Waikiki Beach and a little early morning cross walking safari.  Dawn Patrol for Jesus! Other YWAMers would meet up with us later. I was looking forward to watching these young missionaries walk the cross and pray for their city.  Although my body and muscles were still tired from the extremely long cross walk the day before, their energy and enthusiasm quickened my spirit. And besides that, I knew they would be toting the 60-pound cross instead of me!

Of course, the first thing we did was walk the cross back out to the end of a different jetty than Friday’s cross walk, hoist the 60-pound, 10-foot cross upright, and ask God to send forth Great Revival and Great Awakening throughout the entire state of Hawaii. As the warm waves crashed against the cement jetty just below our feet, I could feel the power of God surge like a mighty ocean wave and sweep across the Bay. Today, the Shekinah Glory and Resurrection Power of Jesus Christ would be displayed mightily throughout Waikiki Beach and Honolulu.

YOU NEED TO DO THIS IN NORWAY, TOO!

YWAM staff member Paul Harder walking the cross down the Waikiki Beach boardwalk.

Billy, Ethan, Jessie and Paul all took turns walking the cross along the crowded beach boardwalk. Usually I’m the one toting the cross, so this gave me the opportunity to observe individual’s reactions. I must say that the majority of people smiled and said very positive things about the sight of a large cross being carried by these young missionaries.

I handed out 2-sided tracts about the cross walk to people passing by. A young woman (who was a flight attendant) and her mom from Norway just couldn’t believe the sight. We talked several minutes about the cross walk. Both are Christians, and their joy in Christ was very apparent. The mom kept saying, “You need to do this in Norway!”

After praying with them for Great Revival to break out here as well as Norway, I caught up with the cross walkers, who seemed to be enjoying this Saturday morning prayer walk. Both the beach and the boardwalk were full of vacationers, tourists and residents, and the YWAMers were busy handing out tracts and talking to individuals about Jesus the Messiah.

There isn’t any doubt at all that the living God was smiling as He looked down from Heaven at the sight of these young missionaries taking turns walking the cross and sharing their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ with men, women and children who need to know that Jesus is the only way, truth and life!

CROSS WALK HAWAII (Part Three): Waikiki Beach Part One—The Solo Walk

Posted by Tom Alexander on June 20th, 2019

Waikiki Bay and Beach. A great day to walk the cross and talk about the first Water Walker.

State and state capital #40.

The entire time (eight days) I was in Honolulu I never had the time or the opportunity to get wet! Just too busy walking the cross and praying for the entire state of Hawaii. BUT…I did get to go to Waikiki Beach on two days. Both days were for cross walking and sharing God’s Good News about Jesus Christ to the endless hordes of residents, vacationers and tourists who were able to jump into the beautiful and crystal blue waters of Waikiki Bay.

Day one at Waikiki Beach was a solo walk. Billy Kyllonen, director of School Of Ministry and Evangelism (SOME) for Honolulu WYAM, was kind enough to load up the cross atop his SUV and drive me to Waikiki Beach.

IF EVERYBODY HAD AN OCEAN

Praying at Waikiki Beach for Honolulu’s 400,000 souls, as well as Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls,

As a former surfer, I was naturally drawn to the beauty of Waikiki Beach’s pristine and clear waters as well as the large manmade jetty. And, of course, I had every intention of walking the cross to the end of the jetty, hoisting it upright, and praying for Honolulu’s 400,000 souls—and that’s exactly the first thing I did!

Scores of beachgoers stopped what they were doing and watched as I walked the cross to the end of the jetty, probably wondering what in the world was going on. The first thing that struck me was the smiles on the faces of all these sun bathers and swimmers as I slowly walked the cross.

Time seemed to stand still as I walked to the end of the jetty, hoisted the cross upright and prayed for Great Revival and Great Awakening to break out throughout Waikiki Beach, Honolulu and all of Hawaii. I prayed loud and long, and I sensed that many people were not only watching, but they were listening as well.

TENNESSEE VACATIONERS PRAY FOR HAWAII

As is my custom, I pointed the cross North, then East, then West, and finally South (Good NEWS) as I prayed, asking God Almighty to send forth His Shekinah Glory, Resurrection Power and Spirit of Grace & Supplication throughout the Hawaiian Islands and bring thousands of souls to Him.

This vacationing Christian couple from Tennessee prayed loud and long for Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls.

After praying I spoke with several people about the cross walk and why I was here. A Christian couple from Tennessee  approached me and asked if they could take pictures of themselves with the cross. Of course. Then I asked if they would join me in praying for Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls. They readily agreed. Both the husband and the wife prayed powerfully and sincerely for Hawaii. What was so awesome is that they also prayed loud and long as well.

We had a great time afterwards, talking about the Lord and the fact that I had walked the cross in Tennessee and its state capital the previous year.  People from Tennessee are very friendly, and we had a wonderful time fellowshipping. Read the rest of this entry »
