UPDATE April 12, 2011, 1:25pm:

For Thomas Didonato, the cost of filling up his red sedan isn't what it used to be.

"I can't see how a country like ours, that could put people on the moon like it's nothin' and people in outerspace like it's nothin' can't make some kind of fuel that would run in these cars that wouldn't cost very much money," Didonato says.

He's just one of a line of people that watched pump prices creep to nearly four dollars a gallon Monday. An issue that Beacon of light Christian Center's Pastor, Marshall Mabry hopes to put an end to through prayer.

"If it doesn't drop down to nothin' but ten cents, I'm happy with that. But what I really want to believe God to do is drop down $1.50, hey, I'm glad with that, too," Mabry says.

if that happened a gallon of gas would run you around two bucks.

Pastor Mabry invites everyone to meet pump side Saturday to pray for these prices to drop.

Mabry says, "I wanna continue this to go from Dublin to Macon, from Macon to Atlanta, and across the country."

Didonato says he's ready to do just about anything to shut the lid on prices like these.

"Everybody prays for somethin', right? So you gotta pray for gas. I don't think He'll listen for that, but, ya know, if it works, it works."

Dublin, Georgia - April 12, 2011

Members of a central Georgia church plan to gather at gas pumps to pray for lower prices.

The Beacon of Light Christian Center is planning
the Saturday prayer gathering at gas pumps outside a Kroger grocery
store in Dublin.

Pastor Marshall Mabry said he believes that if church members
come together and pray as a community, they can make something
happen.

Mabry said that with prices reaching almost $4, he says he plans
to ask God for help.

He said it's the third time members of his congregation have met
at gas pumps to pray.

Mabry said he wants to start a movement which spreads from the
small town of Dublin to the rest of the nation.

Dublin is about 130 miles southeast of Atlanta.
