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

THE FINAL NINE! Cross Walk America: Pray USA

Posted by Tom Alexander on October 26th, 2020

With 41 states and state capitals cross walked and prayed long and hard for since September 11, 2015, Jeanette and I were so looking forward to taking the 10-foot cross to the final nine states!

Mid-April 2020 was our original plan to take the cross to the nine Northeastern Seaboard states and all the way to Maine. But with so many states being closed due to the virus, we had to postpone the cross walks until June 30. And when that day arrived, we were more than ready to depart.

FROM BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA TO WASHINGTON D.C. WITH GOD’S LOVE

The first of these nine states would be Delaware.

But first…God put it on our hearts to revisit and pray in Richmond, Virginia and then Washington, D.C. We had walked the cross and prayed long and hard in these two cities in 2017. But because of the violence and riots breaking out all across the nation, as well as an attempt by some cities to defund their police, especially in Richmond, D.C., Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, we felt the urgent need to pray again at these two cities on our way to the East Coast.

DOVER, DELAWARE AND A TRAVELING LACROSSE TEAM

Members Of A Traveling Lacrosse Team, These Teens Gladly Accepted The Football.

It was a wet and rainy Friday afternoon when we reached Dover. We don’t get much rain in Central California, and the gentle yet constant rain falling on Go-Ye-Mobile-2 as we drove to our motel was very pleasing to the soul.

Dover is a beautiful city of 38,000 souls. We instantly fell in love with the city. As we checked into our motel room for the weekend, we praised God for such a wonderful time and motel site. Our room faced a very large lake! And though it was raining, I just had to go across the parking lot to the lake and take in the freshness of the day.

I always carry a football in the truck for a specific reason. As we looked toward the lake from our room, a group of older teens mingled around the parking lot next to the lake. Pointing to the teens I said, “I’ll be right back.” Unlocking the truck, I located the football and walked toward the teens. “Hi, I’m Tom,” I shared to no one in particular.

I shared our mission, and they all listened intently. “Here’s a football for you,” I announced, tossing the pigskin to one of the teens. “You know, major league baseball players often warm up by throwing a football.” The teens looked surprised, but they began to toss the ball around. I also handed each one a special two-sided tract about Jesus Christ. Each one gladly accepted the tract as well. “Jesus Christ loves you all,” I shared as I slowly walked back to our room. “Thank you for the ball!” one of the teens yelled as I walked away. “And for sharing what you and your wife are doing.”

SATURDAY MORNING AT THE CAPITOL MALL

Delaware’s 975,000 Souls Need The Lord! To That End, My Prayer Was That God Would Send Great Revival Throughout The Land!

The next morning the rain had stopped. Since the Capitol building was under two miles away, decided to cross walk from the motel along the very busy highway/main street.

Though it was 8:00 in the morning, people were already out and about. And they were very happy to see the cross!

People passing by in cars and trucks honked their horns and gave the thumbs-up sign as I slowly made my way to the cross street that would take me to the capitol building. I handed out two-sided tract cards to people walking by on the sidewalk and shared our reason for being in Dover.

Like the other eight states, Delaware is considered liberal. But that certainly didn’t stop anyone from taking the tracts! As I walked I prayed out loud and for all to hear, asking the LORD of the Harvest to send forth the Spirit of revival throughout Dover and the entire state of Delaware. Read the rest of this entry »

CROSS WALK AMERICA: PRAY USA Washington D.C. Part Four

Posted by Tom Alexander on October 26th, 2020

CHURCH AT THE CAPITOL WITH A PASTOR FROM SOUTH KOREA

Reverend Yang Is From Virginia. Today He Was Also Praying At The White House.

After praying hard, loud and long at the White House south side lawn, I lowered the 10-foot cross to my right shoulder and walked toward the east side of the White House. A pleasant sight captured my attention as I approached the large guard station protecting this side of the White House from intruders.

Reverend Fisher Yang from Strasburg, Virginia stood on the sidewalk near the guard entrance and next to a sign printed with the most familiar Bible passage in the world—John 3:16! As I approached Fisher, a smile crossed his face. “You brought a large cross to the White House!” he exclaimed.

His smile was contagious.

This brother from South Korea was also handing out tracts to all who would receive them. He had been in D.C. for a week and had been praying for the safety and salvation of our president and all White House personnel, as well as the Capitol Police.

THE CAPITOL POLICE AREN’T TOO FRIENDLY

All Lives Matter To Jesus, Including Law Enforcement Officers.

We had church at the White House! We prayed together and sang a couple of stanzas from Amazing Grace for the eight Capitol police at the guard station, as well as the people passing by, to both see and hear. You could sense the presence of the Spirit of the living God.

Excusing myself, I shared that I was going to go talk to the police for a few minutes. Brother Yang warned, “They aren’t too friendly.”

As I approached the stern-looking Capitol police I shared, “This is a 2-sided tract I hand out to all law enforcement officers, all LEOs. Thank you for guarding our president and the White House.”  I held out a tract to one of the officers. He took it and thanked me. This broke the ice and as I handed out a tract to the other officers, I shared, “We just prayed for you all…for your safety and your family’s safety as well.” A collective “Thank you!” filled the air.

We must never forget that police officers have families. At the end of the day, they want to go home to their families. Just like you and me. That’s why I am very quick to hand every law enforcement officer I meet a special tract, as well as thanking them for protecting our nation and letting them know that I am praying for them and their families.

CROSS WALK AMERICA: PRAY USA Washington D.C. Part Three

Posted by Tom Alexander on October 13th, 2020

JOURNEY TO THE WHITE HOUSE

This wonderful family from Alabama and I prayed together for our nation and for its political leaders.

After praying hard and long for America’s 850,000 Thin Blue Line law enforcement officers, I loaded up the 10-foot, 60-pound cross and headed for The White House.

Parking at Constitution Garden and near the huge Washington Monument, I ate a small snack and then began the short walk to the White House. I wasn’t tired but knew it was important to eat as well as hydrate.

The Washington Monument is the tallest stone structure in the world at 555 feet. After resting a few minutes and enjoying the beauty of the National Mall surroundings, I lowered the cross to my right shoulder and headed toward my destination.

At the park a family from Alabama greeted me and I shared the purpose of the cross walk. Each one wanted a picture of them holding the large cross, and it was quite a joy to see their enthusiasm and love for the Lord Jesus Christ. We also prayed for America and for all three branches of the federal government—for great revival to break out among all our political leaders and lawmakers.

HERE, THERE OR IN THE AIR!

Believers Must Pray For This City Of 750,000 Souls, As Well As For Our National Leaders.

After a long chat,  I gave each of them the special two-sided tracts I had created for this particular cross walk. “If we don’t see you again, we will see you in heaven!” the father shouted out as they slowly walked away. “Yes! Here, there or in the air!” I answered back. All four smiled and the dad replied, “Hey, I’m going to use that!” I smiled and began walking toward the White House, a big smile on my faith. “God bless you brother,” the mom shouted out for all to hear.

It was quite refreshing and invigorating to spend time with this young Christian family. Though I didn’t know it, before this cross walk was over, I would meet and talk with many families similar to this one. Surprisingly, there are a lot of Christians living in this beautiful city and national capitol. And it was a pleasure meeting and talking with so many.

Waving and smiling at the people who walked or drove by, I quietly asked the LORD of the harvest to send forth such a powerful spirit of revival throughout the nation’s capitol that hundreds of thousands of souls, including America’s political leaders, would accept Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord.

WASHINGTON D.C. CROSS WALK Part Two

Posted by Tom Alexander on October 12th, 2020

I Joined This Pro-Life Group In Prayer When I Learned They Were praying For A Specific Reason.


THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT

After praying hard and long at our nation’s Capitol for our elected Senators and House of Representatives, I walked the cross a couple of blocks away and to the United States Supreme Courthouse. To my surprise, dozens of  news reporters were mingling around the main steps to the Courthouse, as were several pro-life advocates.

These men and women were standing together silently in prayer at the bottom of the long flight of steps. After I hoisted the large cross behind them and prayed long and hard for the Court’s nine justices, I then moved the cross to the middle of the group and joined them in prayer.

Only my prayer wasn’t silent.

CONCEIVED LIVES MATTER!

Whenever I hoist the cross and pray, I pray loud enough for people all around me to hear because I definitely want everyone to know what I am praying for—and why I am praying.

Conceived Lives Matter! Let Us All Pray That Abortion On Demand Is Eventually Outlawed in Our Nation.

Although I didn’t know it, the pro-life group was there today because the Justices were ruling on a decision as to whether or not the government can force employers, including religious nonprofits, to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees, in violation of their religious beliefs.  I joined the group and asked the God of all life, including the unborn, to vote in favor of religious freedom.

Later that day, we heard the Justice’s decision, a vote in favor of pro-life advocates! The power of prayer continues to not only uphold God’s righteousness, but also slowly but surely topple unrighteous laws and judicial decisions. The battle is the LORD’s but He calls us to show up and pray against the darkness. Amen!

I stayed and prayed for one hour, then said good bye to the pro-life group.

Although I didn’t know it at the time, the large cross and the cross walker made national and international news this day. Reporting on the Justices’ decision, major news media outlets throughout America and the world featured a video or image of the 10-foot cross as I hoisted it and prayed against the American holocaust. Amen. Read the rest of this entry »

FROM BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA TO MAINE. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. 50 STATES. 50 STATE CAPITALS. Washington D.C. Crosswalk

Posted by Tom Alexander on October 5th, 2020

WASHINGTON D.C. CROSS WALK
July 2020. For A Time Such As This.

 

The 2-sided tract I handed out to the residents of Washington D.C. as well as political aides to the president, congressional leaders and supreme court justices.

After the Richmond, Virginia prayer cross walk for the city’s Thin Blue Line and its 232,000 souls, Jeanette and I headed for our nation’s Capitol, about 110 miles away. In February, 2017 we cross walked and prayed hard and long in D.C. for not only our nation’s political leaders, but for the city’s 720,000 souls as well. Because of the extreme political unrest throughout America, we felt the strong urge to return and walk the cross and pray once again for national healing and revival.

After settling into our motel room, we prayed that this pray cross walk would be even more successful and powerful than the 2017 walk. Almost 2,700 miles from home, Jeanette and I slept like babies throughout the night. The journey from Bakersfield to D.C. had been long. BUT HERE WE WERE ONCE AGAIN!

WHERE YOU GOING WITH THAT BIG CROSS?

The next morning while Jeanette prayed, I traveled the four miles from our room to my favorite parking spot just a block away from the Capitol Building.

The large cross is an attention getter! As I unloaded the 10-foot, 60-pound cross from Go-Ye-Mobile-2, I couldn’t help but notice the large number of individuals walking by and whose eyes were fixed intently on the cross. Some faces were filled with curiosity. Frowns filled a few. But plenty of the faces had happy smiles. I shouted out, “Good morning!” to all who passed by. Most returned the greeting.

A loud voice filled the air. “Where you taking that cross?” I turned to look and noticed a man dressed in a business suit smiling as he awaited my answer.

I explained the purpose of the cross walk. The young man shared that he was an aide to one of the senators and he would let him know that a cross walker from Bakersfield, California was in D.C. today to pray for all three branches of the federal government. “You know Kevin McCarthy?” he asked as he walked away. “Not personally,” I answered. “But we are from the same city.” Kevin McCarthy is the House Minority Leader in the United States House of Representatives.

FROM BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA TO MAINE. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. 50 STATES, 50 STATE CAPITALS! Part One

Posted by Tom Alexander on September 30th, 2020

Originally Scheduled For April, Due To The Corona Virus, Here We Were Finally Heading Out For The East Coast Five Days Before The Fourth Of July!

On June 30, 2020 Jeanette and I loaded up Go-Ye-Mobile-2 with the 10-foot, 60-pound cross and headed for Washington D.C. After cross walking and praying in D.C., we would head for the upper nine Northeastern Seaboard states, and all the way up to Maine. This would be a very long journey, so we took our time traveling across the country.

The states of Delaware, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Massachusetts, New York and Maine would be the last nine of all 50 states we cross walked and prayed long and hard for between 2015 and 2020, and we were looking forward to reaching our first destination.

As we journeyed across the country, Jeanette and I recalled how each of the 41 states so far had received us with open arms, and how tens of thousands of men, women and children had responded positively to the message of the cross! Though each of these 41 states were unique in their own way, the people were the same. The people we spoke with and prayed for love Jesus, and they love America.

But now, we were headed for an area of our nation that was very liberal. As I drove from state to state and toward our first destination, I often wondered what would be the response in each of these birth place of America states. And with the Covid-19 virus in full play, as well as ongoing protests and riots taking place throughout the nation, I most certainly wanted us to to be fully prepared both spiritually and socially.

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 »
