The 'Call to the Wall': Intercessory Prayer Movement for Political Candidates Takes Root

Scripture calls us to pray for our leaders, and with the midterm elections almost here, Christians across the country are gathering by the numbers to do just that.

CBN News spoke with several groups to get a feel for what appears to be a growing prayer movement spreading in the United States.

Maureen Bravo, one intercessor on the frontlines, started a prayer call-line during the 2016 election. She told CBN News that believers called in from all over the country to intercede for God's will. However, she noticed that once the election was over, the line went silent.

"And I thought, 'How crazy am I? I dialed this code so many times. How could I mess it up?'" Bravo told CBN News. "I got back on. There was nobody there. And I sat down and I said, 'What's going on, God?' He said, 'The election's over. Everybody left the wall. Get back on the wall.'"

And that's exactly what she did.

"Our 24-7 National Strategic Prayer Call was launched two days after the election," Bravo explained.

Just like its name suggests, the line runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is definitely strategic. Volunteer "facilitators" start each hour praying for President Trump and his administration. From there they move on to specific topics like the midterm elections.

The number for the National Strategic Prayer Call is 712-770-4340, code: 543555#.
