Engle: 'I'm Burning Inside'

Lou Engle, founder of TheCall, is imploring Christians to pray beginning this Sunday night for "reformation" to come to California's government.

Engle, a strong supporter of Proposition 8, a measure on the California ballot passed by voters last November outlawing same-sex marriage, issued his urgent call for fasting and prayer partly as a response to the legal fight gay-rights activists are waging in California courts to overthrow the gay-marriage ban.

"I'm just burning inside for California," Engle said in a video on TheCall Web site. "In a very crisis and critical moment of time, even with the Proposition 8 issue being raged over again, we are taking our stand and saying 'no' to the powers of darkness and 'yes' to the brilliant light of God."

Engle is urging Christians across California to join him each night from Sunday through Ash Wednesday at the Mott Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The raspy voiced leader known for routinely spearheading corporate fasts said he recently analyzed his long prophetic history in California, trying to determine what promises God had given him. "I can tell you it's almost like those promises have become more real to me than ever before," he said. "The circumstances, situations, the people getting elected, they don't dictate the future of the promises of God."

Other Christian leaders also sense the urgency in California, which is why Engle has asked the entire body of Christ to pray for God to "hold back the homosexual marriage thing that's coming raging in again."

Engle dubbed the four-day prayer rally The Elijah Revolution. "Every evening, we're going to be holding a prophetic recall gathering," he said. "We're going to play and replay our prophetic history, the promises of God, for people all over California, young and old."

On Wednesday, following the prayer rally, Engle will launch 40 days of prayer and fasting for the season of lent. He said years ago he participated in a 40-day prayer walk from San Diego to San Francisco during the season lent.

He also announced 40-day perpetual fasts through this summer, leading up to TheCall in Sacramento on Nov. 7.
