It seems everywhere I turn, people, churches, and even nations are being stirred to fast with great expectancy of a coming move of the Holy Spirit. A few days ago, my friend Mando Matthews, who has been a 40-day fasting and prayer partner with me in Pasadena, contacted me with a dream...

He dreamed he was at an outdoor gathering, much like an old camp-meeting, and the preacher was a hybrid of three prophetic preachers: Lou Engle (from Southern California), Doug Addison (from Central California), and Keith Ferrante (from Northern California). Suddenly, from the platform, the preacher said, “I’m doing another fast with Mando.” This caught Mando’s attention, but he didn’t know anything about the fast to which he was referring. Then it dawned on him that the preacher would tell him more in person. Sure enough, in the next part of the dream they were sitting across a table from each other in a restaurant. The preacher began to sing a very anointed song about the Holy Spirit. My friend could distinctly remember the phrases: “Heaven, send the rain. Pour on hearts again.” Then Mando looked straight into the preacher’s eyes and said, “We already have two rain songs. But, I suppose if you wish, I can help you publish this one.” The gentleman looked right back at him and said, “This is the last rain song.”

As soon as I heard this dream I was struck with a clear sense of its meaning. I believe the “last rain” is the latter rain that precedes the harvest as is prophesied in Joel 2, Hosea 6, and other passages.

“Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for He has given you the autumn rains because He is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.” Joel 2:23-24

“So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth.” Hosea 6:3

As for the “rain songs” that are mentioned in the dream, I sense this is referring to two songs that stand out from the journey of TheCall. Let it Rain, by Pocket Full of Rocks, was sung at the first Call in Washington, DC before Michael W. Smith picked it up and recorded it. The song has since circled the earth for the past two decades, being sung by millions as an intercessory cry before the Lord. Then on 7/7/07, (I Can Hear) The Sound of Rain, written by Autumn Katz, was sung at TheCall Nashville, where we prayed for the 40-year anniversary of the Jesus Movement. Both of these songs were sung again at TheCall Azusa Now in Los Angeles. But, there is a “last song” yet to be sung, a song of joy and expectancy, connected with the fast that will precipitate the latter rain outpourings of the Holy Spirit on California.

I believe the “hybrid” man in Mando’s dream is the convergence of these three prophetic voices from the north, south and central regions, who would call believers from all of California to join together in a united prayer strategy for the rains of revival in California. The three of us hardly knew one another before now, but this dream has drawn us together to each bring our part to this hybrid fast.

Keith Ferrante is calling for celebratory worship, releasing praise and joy, prophetically declaring, “now is the time for what has been sown in tears to be spring forth in harvest." Ps. 126

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “The fasts… will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah.” Zechariah 8:19  


Doug Addison felt his part of the fast was to call for a complete fasting from negativity towards the state and it’s people, rallying thousands to prophesy blessing over California as in Psalm 67. As we fast from negativity it will be important to release the opposite spirit of joy and blessings to open the heavens.

My part of the fast was first received in a prophetic word 18 years ago, saying that I was to call the world to 40 days of fasting for the great harvest into the new millennium. At the time, a prophet named Paul Cain was coming to HRock church. I asked the Lord if he really wanted me to call this 40-day fast that he would have Paul prophecy to me and include the scripture Ecclesiastes 11:1. Amazingly, Paul called me out with a prophetic word saying, “I see that you are skinny, for you are fasting, and the Lord gives you Ecclesiastes 11:1, 'Cast your bread upon the water and after many days you will find it.'” These 18 years are the “many days” and, since Azusa Now, the fast is spreading worldwide. Therefore, I am calling for a 40-day fast for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and a great California harvest - a new Jesus Movement!

It is our conviction that pieces of this hybrid sound will land on people’s hearts as the Spirit witnesses. All of us will rejoice in praise and prophetic celebration of the coming move of God. All will fast negativity and begin to massively bless the state of California. And probably many of us will feel the call to 40 days of fasting on water, juice, or a Daniel fast, in expectation of the latter rains. We will feast, fast and bless from March 1st - April 9th, the anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival, praying for the rain in the time of the latter rain. Let’s prophecy, “He will come to us like rain, spring rain!”


Consumed by the call, 

Lou Engle
