An unusual sight — an 11-foot-tall wooden cross with hundreds of written prayer requests nailed to it — has been turning motorists’ heads and prompting some of them to get out of their cars during pastor Terry Long’s 100-day vigil at the busy intersection of Highways 63 and 613 near the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The pastor estimates there have been some 1,500 visits to pray and nail requests to the cross since Jan. 23, and 23 people have prayed to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior.
