The vision of Enough is Enough citywide prayer came about as a result of a brutal homicide of an innocent bystander in October of 2010. Dominique Maye was shot and killed in her home while doing homework by a bullet that was not meant for her. Pastor Darius Pridgen called the community together to pray every night for a week to restore hope and to help to heal the cries of those who were hurting, grieving, and mourning. There was such a huge following of the prayer and the concept quickly gained momentum. Pastor Pridgen and other community leaders recognized the impact that the week of prayer had on the community. It was imperative that someone took the lead to keep the prayer alive. Buffalo United Front, Inc. and its members were honored to grab the baton and run the race for peace.
Buffalo United Front Inc. and its members have continued to facilitate citywide Enough is Enough prayer since November 2010. Prayer takes place every week and is located at a different church throughout the city and suburbs of the City of Buffalo. Enough is Enough signs can be seen throughout the city; placed in residential lawns and business windows of those that have been impacted by violence and of those who believe in the power of prayer. Enough is Enough citywide prayer is a source of hope and refuge for those individuals that have been victims of senseless violence and homicides in our city. We believe in the power of prayer and trust that the decrease in homicides in our city in 2011 was attributed to our faith and tenacity to remain vigilant and to pray without ceasing. The homicide rate is at its lowest in a decade.
