Interfaith leaders and graduating high school students from across the United States joined hands to pray in the Hart Senate Office Building yesterday at the end of a cold walk around several Senate offices on Capitol Hill [3].

"Dear God, with you, I know anything is possible ... " came the prayer of one young student about her need for the Senate to pass the DREAM Act [4], so she can attend college and not be deported. The DREAM Act would help provide a path to citizenship for immigrant students [5] who have grown up in the United States, if they attend college or serve in the military. The Senate may vote this week; four more Senators are needed to commit to the DREAM.

There's still time to contact your Senators, [6] and the need is urgent. Even if you've done so before, Congress needs to know we are watching -- and praying.
