TheCall Draws 33,000 to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego
Nov. 2, 2008 - Report by Lori Arnold about TheCall at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego on Nov. 1. More than 10,000 participants, mostly young people, and many who were on the last day of a 40-day fast, spent 12 hours in unified prayer for God's mercy and for His will to be done through next Tuesday's elections.
Therefore, we are summoning believers from all across the state of California and the nation to gather for a Joel 2 moment. When there is no remedy, when there is no natural hope, God still has a holy prescription. Blow the trumpet in Zion, gather the people, and call a fast. Let the believers of this great state gather and cry out to God believing that California could become the flash point of real change in America not the open door to societal collapse. Let us return to the fasting praying womb in San Diego and seek the face of God on November 1st, 2008 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA.
