CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — 2020 is a year where it was not hard to feel lonely or anxious due to COVID-19... but one Southside couple is bringing people together with the power of prayer.

The idea came to Olga and David Davila around the beginning of the pandemic, both would host prayer service at their home on Megal Street.

They wanted everyone to get involved safely. That is where the idea started.

"This gives us the opportunity to feel together and not that we're alone,” Said David Davila.

The Davila's act of kindness has sparked several others to do the same. David says people have contacted him about trying to do the same in their neighborhood.

He said so far, they have received about 40 prayer requests. “If a number is left on the request, they will sometimes contact them and send them a message."

"God is in control, if we keep on praying, we keep on asking him, it's a lot better than not praying at all or not believing,” said David.

If you would like to leave a prayer request for Olga and David, you can head to 4734 Megal Street off of Everhart Road.
