What is The Call? It’s a prayer and fasting movement led by Lou Engle. Thousands across our nation and around the world have been gathering to pray and fast for break through in spiritual realms.
Our friends the Conways have been becoming more and more involved with the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Tampa and attended a Call gathering held in FL a few months ago. They let us in on the movement and then Leslie and her son J drove until the early hours of the morning to attend The Call gathering here with us in Montgomery on April 5th. We were blessed to have them come pray with us.
Over ten thousand gathered to pray and fast that day .. it was a very moving experience. God did a work in all of our lives. It’s hard to describe the intense warfare that was going on against abortion, tearing down prejudices and bitterness between black and whites, and releasing revival in America.
Here is a powerful 2 min. video from YouTube from The Call. Just a taste of the 12 hours we experienced.
I learned a lot about the history of our new city and about how God is moving in our city and nation.
You can join in with the thousands praying and fasting in future The Call gatherings by watch them live on God TV. There will be a The Call gathering in DC in August, one in CA this fall and several International ones including one in Israel coming soon.
There are many other ways you can get involved, also. You can donate, volunteer, you can attend training, you can commit to pray and fast against abortion for life, you can help start an IHOP in your home town, you can plant a Prayer Furnace… and much more.

Prayer to end abortion
I was thinking a week or two before The Call that we need a ribbon for abortion awareness like the ones for breast cancer etc. At the call we got these “Life Bands” and have committed to pray this 22 word prayer everyday with thousands of others: “Jesus, I plead your Blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America.” You can order a band and learn more at the above site.
Earlier this year the Lord showed me a weed of doubt that had grown in my heart and revealed to me that doubt is having more faith in our enemies than in Him. I had allowed the thought that I would never see an end to abortion and that it was hopeless to pray against it to enter my heart. I repented immediately but the faith that I could be apart of bring down the stronghold of abortion still wasn’t there.
If you are in a place like that, with any enemy in your life.. get your self in a position to hear the WORD. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. If you have to hear it for days or months straight before it gets in your heart, do it. Lives may be a stake. Our weapons are not carnal but mighty to the pulling down of strong holds.
When I pray against abortion now, I have direction for my prayers. I pray for forgiveness of the sins of our nation and against the lies planted by the enemy that are leading people astray.. taking every thought captive and bringing them under submission to Truth.
The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 MSG
I’ve been privileged to see the beginnings of revival in our nation and I hope in the last day you will find me still standing in prayer.
“doubt is having more faith in our enemies than in Him.” I like that.
