The Call D.C. - From Montgomery, to Jerusalem, to D.C. (8/16)

Massive, United Fasting and Prayer Can Shift a Nation…

The Call is on the March...

On Labor Day weekend in September 2000, over 400,000 people gathered to the National Mall in Washington, DC. They came not to the sound of a music festival or to hear the biggest names in Christendom, but they came to the sound of Joel 2: "Blow the trumpet in Zion! Consecrate a fast! Call a sacred assembly." This gathering was known as TheCall DC.

After TheCall DC between 2000 and 2003, TheCall mobilized hundreds of thousands of believers from all across the nations to gather in culture-influencing cities across America for TheCall Boston, TheCall New York City, TheCall San Francisco, and others to seek God in prayer and fasting.

And now, after eight years, TheCall is on the road again back to the National Mall. We will again converge on August 16th, 2008 in Washington, DC believing that people, young and old alike, will gather to fast, pray, and ask God for a historic visitation.

Will you be there?

Join us in DC:
TheCall DC
August 16th, 2008

When there is no remedy,
God still has a holy prescription ...

"Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly"
(Joel 2:15)

God is calling a generation to contend for the soul of a nation
It's a fast, not a festival

History of TheCall

In 1997 our nation witnessed one of the largest Christian gatherings in American history. The Promise Keepers, a ministry specifically focused on igniting men with a passion for Jesus, gathered a million men on the National Mall in Washington DC to call men across our nation to a lifestyle of purity and godliness. Deeply impacted by this highly profound event and burdened with a God-given dream, a vision was fashioned within the heart of man named Lou Engle to raise up a corresponding youth movement to cry out to God for a revival to sweep across our nation.

Two years after the inception of this dream, a woman approached Lou Engle and asked if he had ever considered putting young people on the Mall like the Promise Keepers did in 1997. Taken back and amazed, Lou replied that two years prior he had been burdened with a dream to see the youth of our nation gathering at the National Mall, and confessed he actually prophesied this coming gathering would be a sign from God that there was still hope for our nation. The women promptly wrote a check for $100,000, setting into action a whole chain of supernatural events that would eventually result in the TheCall DC on September 2nd, 2000. God’s blessing was clearly manifest throughout the day as the presence of the Holy Spirit infused the prayer, worship and intermittent words of encouragement from our nations greatest spiritual leaders. The result of one mans obedience to the God given dream was an attendance of over 400,000 young people.

After this TheCall DC in September 2000, TheCall was exported across the nation to twelve different locations, each one gathering thousands of people hungry for a movement of God. Rather than elevating man’s good ideas, these massive gatherings were spent in cooperate fasting, praying, and worshiping before God. Specific regional issues were confronted in each gathering in the place of prayer. In each Call, issues such racism, sexual immorality and abortion were brought into light and repented for corporately by the body of Christ. In New York, Dallas, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Nashville, and Kansas City, a movement of prayer and fasting has filled stadiums with the sounds of worship and the incense of prayer. This divine movement of repentance has extended beyond the narrow boarders of America as theCall has traveled to Australia, Germany, the Philippines, Norway, England and Israel.

Today TheCall is marching across our land to Washington D.C. to gather together for a historic gathering on August 16, 2008. We believe that our nation is in a critical hour and in desperate need of revival. While our societies moral compass continues to erode the faith of our nation is becoming increasingly secularized. The world in its rebellion violently pursues the fulfillment of all fleshly desires yet the church has fallen prey to many of the same sins that plague our society. Even within the church truth has been substituted for spiritual relativism and religious tolerance. Sexual immorality, racism, and abortion are just as prevalent from our pews and pulpits as it is in our secular universities. We are in an hour of crisis, an hour when we have to confront our own spiritual barrenness as the church and in the place of prayer cry out to God for mercy on our nation and revival in our land. Our hope in this hour is in God and God alone. On August 16, 2008 we are calling for 1,000,000 people to again gather together in the National Mall to fast and to pray for God to pour out His undeserved mercy on our land.

August 16th, 2008 ... Will you answer The Call?
