Muslim Rally Prompts Calls for Prayer, Fasting

By Adrienne S. Gaines with Nicole Schiavi


Ministry leaders are calling on Christians to pray before and during a Muslim prayer rally that is expected to draw tens of thousands to Capitol Hill Friday.

TheCall founder Lou Engle issued an urgent prayer call last week asking Christians to pray in the run up to Islam on Capitol Hill, when some 50,000 Muslims are expected to gather in the nation’s capital to pray for the soul of America.

Tonight Engle will join Shirley Dobson, chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins in praying for the U.S. during a national teleconference beginning at 7:30 p.m. Eastern. In a statement posted on his ministry Web site, Engle also called on Christians to fast and pray Friday.

"We are calling the Church of America to fast and pray that Muslims would be moved by the Holy Spirit, convicted by the testimony of Christ, and even be visited by Jesus in dreams," Engle said. "We must pray that God would restrain the spiritual powers behind Islam and grant us the great awakening that we desperately need for America."

Engle’s prayer call has been echoed by numerous ministry networks, which see the Muslim rally as a sign of an intentional "Islamization" of America.
