A decade ago, Lou Engle was a man with a vision: to rally young people across the country to pray for the nation.
Ten years ago, more than 400,000 young people turned out on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to pray for America. It was the beginning of what came to be known as "The Call," a series of strategic prayer events held around the country that brought millions of people to their knees to fast, pray, and intercede for the nation.
Lou Engle appears on Tuesday's The 700 Club, to talk about how The Call continues to impact young people and Christians of all ages, across the country and around the world. Click play to watch.
The Call movement was Engle's dream. Engle is a man with a rare zeal and burden to see the passage 2 Chronicles 7:14 come to life:
"If my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, than I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
Since then, there have been a number of The Call events from coast to coast and around the world. In 2008, The Call even went to Jerusalem where Engle and others prayed for the spiritual wall between Jews and gentiles to come down.
Today, The Call is still going strong and is headed to Sacramento, Calif. early this fall for its 10th Anniversary and to once again move the heart of God for this nation.
