Arrival of Pilgrims in AmericaThis year marks 400 years since the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth and that historic event will be celebrated next month with a prayer meeting on the very spot of the first-ever home built in America by early settlers.

The prayer meeting, which will be virtual due to COVID-19, is scheduled for October 6 at 7 p.m.  

The website for the prayer meeting is ItsTimeToPray.org.

Carter Conlon, who pastors Times Square Church, met family members who own the home that is believed to be the very spot where the settlers built Plymouth Colony.   

"There are diagrams in the house that depict the first Thanksgiving actually being in the front yard of that particular house," the pastor told the “Washington Watch” program in an interview about the prayer gathering.

The historic site is also where those Plymouth settlers, after enduring their first harsh winter in the new land, gathered to pray after nearly half of them succumbed to hunger and disease.

“We're going to pray,” Conlon said, “and we're going to believe that God is going to resurrect this nation again."
