A week of united campus prayer and fasting to turn America back to God.
On the 20th Anniversary of the historic Prayer Storm gatherings, we are calling students from across the nation to gather in Colorado Springs for 5 days of united prayer and fasting. In this critical hour of American history, we are believing that concerted intercession can turn this nation back to God. Join hundreds of students and leaders for a transformative week of exhortation from national leaders, fellowship with other campus movements, and above all, intensive prayer and fasting to shift history.
In 1996, Rock the Nations’ Prayer Storm exploded through America, where thousands of young people from across this nation gathered in Colorado Springs to fast and pray. For three consecutive years, they prayed that stadiums would be filled with John the Baptist’s fasting and prayer. In 2000, TheCall was born, and for the next 16 years, stadiums were filled with hundreds of thousands of Nazarite young men and women lifting up countless hours of prayer. But the last words of John the Baptist were not “prepare the way!” but “behold the Lamb!”
In 2011, a series of confirming words were given to Lou Engle and TheCall declaring: “There is coming a shift to TheCall, and it will not be just fasting and prayer, but proclamation of the Gospel, signs, wonders, and miracles, and Billy Graham’s mantle is coming to the nation again.” If TheCall truly was a John the Baptist movement, then you can bet there is a Jesus Movement coming!
But these movements aren't forged in a day. Like John the Baptist who was prepared in the wilderness, it took 3 years of focused intercession in the wilderness of Colorado Springs to birth TheCall. But our question is this: what would it look like if the youth of America gathered once again in united fasting and prayer to birth the great end-times harvest in the nations of the earth? We dare believe for a world-wide Jesus Movement, for stadiums to be filled with signs and wonders and the proclamation of the Gospel.
In the summer of 2017, on the 20th anniversary of this historic youth prayer and fasting movement, we are calling for a united gathering of young campus leaders for concerted prayer and fasting to see America turn back to God.
