Faithful Gather at the Capitol to Pray
An inspired crowd shared a moment of prayer

Faithful from around the mid-Willamette Valley shared a time of prayer, music and worship in a public setting under cooperative skies.

Master of Ceremonies, former State Representative Jeff Kropf (R) reminded people that this was not a political event. "We're here from all religions, to pray".

Organizers pointed out that they had proper permits for the Capitol steps and the Capitol Mall. Few participants wore masks and one observer noted that there wasn't much social distancing going on. "In addition to being faithful worshippers, I tend to think they are a bit on the rebellious side." The Oregon State Police had a subtle presence at the event.

After over 2 hours of prayer, music, preaching and biblical readings, the event concluded peacefully.
