A Montgomery County couple has turned their backyard into a place for prayer.
A sign, a tent, some chairs, it's a no frills setup. But some claim the prayer tent, as it's commonly called, overflows with the presence of God.
"I had one guy say it was like a download from heaven to me, and I'm different from being in there, and I can't explain it," said John Coleman.
They gather for different reasons, at different times, and from many backgrounds.
"I came over this morning to spend a little time with the Lord and praying with these folks," said Laura Negron.
"Anytime. You can come at six in the morning. You can come at eight at night," said Marguerite Goodhart.
"We don't have to know each other to know God," said Negron.
It all started last Spring when John Coleman had a dream.
"I just kind of sensed that I did need to put the tent up. I didn't want to do something really silly. So, I went to talk to my pastor about it and he said John I think you should do it," said Coleman.
And people showed up.
"After a meeting at nighttime, or when we've been out to the store, and there'll be people out there praying. One or two or three people praying in the tent. I would say it's just a God thing," said Coleman.
"People come by to be still and quiet, and sit and get away from life a little while, and have someone else pray with you," said Goodhart.
But John had enough after all of the storms this Spring. He put the tent up and down eight times.
"I just said we're done. We took the sign out of the ground. People started knocking on the door and said when are you putting the prayer tent back up," said Coleman.
"There's so much going on in the world today. There needs to be a place for people to just pull away and have that one on one communion with the Lord, without an agenda, without a schedule," said Susan Coleman.
John can't explain what it is about this place. He says there's a spring nearby that drew people here years ago.
"I think that even before there was a paved road, that people stopped here and were refreshed, and I think it's still a place of refreshment," said John Coleman.
Anyone can come here anytime to pray.
