Over 30,000 People Attend TheCall in San Diego

Teresa Neumann : Nov 3, 2008 : Lawrence Jones - The Christian Post

Regarding moral issues, Lou Engle says Christians in America—particularly right now in California—"stand on a battlefield more significant than Iraq."

The Call San Diego(San Diego, California)—The Christian Post reports that over 30,000 Christians gathered for TheCall—a 12-hour fasting, repentance and prayer rally—on Saturday in San Diego, asking God to guide the spiritual direction of the nation and bring revival as Election Day approaches. San Diego was just one of several major cities around the world which have hosted TheCall prayer rallies. (Photo by: Shelley Paulson, ShelleyPaulson.com/thecall.com)

"We come rending our hearts and garments," said Lou Engle, founder of TheCall. "We come as one body—the Body of Christ—one voice crying out for mercy, God."

According to the report, participants dedicated about a fifth of their prayers to protecting the sanctity of marriage and during the rally, Engle was quoted as saying Christians—especially right now in California— "stand on a battlefield more significant than Iraq."

The controversial issue has alarmed California pastors, many of whom say that marriage is a moral issue and not a political one. Pastors also say the rejection of the measure would jeopardize their religious freedom since they will be forced, against their moral convictions, to perform wedding ceremonies for gay couples to keep their church's tax-exempt status.
