Thousands Gathered to Pray for Our Nation – Update from TheCall…

I just wanted to give a big shout out to Lou Engle and his wife, Therese, and all the thousands of people who came from all over the United States to attend TheCall. It was such a wonderful time as we prayed for our nation, our leaders, and for the hearts of people to be turned back to God! We joined with intercessory representatives from, and on behalf, of California and every state to "altar" lives, "altar" states, and "altar" the nation.

It was such a privilege to be asked to participate in this great event and pray for the young women of our nation who have suffered from trafficking, cutting, eating disorders, abuse, addictions, and all other kinds of life-controlling issues. To be joined on stage by the 40 young women who currently occupy our Sacramento home was extra special!!! We stood on stage on the steps of the Capitol in Sacramento, California to intercede about the issues we face in our nation today. Our residents and staff were deeply impacted by this entire event, and it was such a joy for our girls to be personally encouraged and ministered to by Lou Engle’s wife, Therese, world-renown author and speaker Cindy Jacobs, and Lou’s beautiful parents (pictured left). Lou’s dad was celebrating his 90th birthday, and you can see from the picture that both of Lou’s parents are still going strong as they took the time to bless and minister to the young women who are currently in our California home.

The whole entire day from start to finish was a huge blessing for all those who participated – not only the thousands who were in attendance, but also those who were watching from around the world either on GodTV or live-streaming online. We are so thankful for Lou Engle and his family for their great love for people and the wonderful sacrifices they have made!!
