It has been said quite often lately that there is no hope for Detroit because we have sufficiently destroyed and continue to destroy ourselves. But, thank God there are still thousands in the metro Detroit area who believe God has chosen Detroit as a staging ground for demonstrating great hope and healing for our nation.
In our days of success and prosperity Detroit was known around the world as a model to reproduce. A popular saying back then was, "As Detroit goes, so goes the nation and the world." We believe God wants to do it again right here in Detroit and southeastern Michigan.
Because we believe that with all our hearts, thousands are gathering to fast and cry out to God in fervant prayer, daring to believe America could turn back to God and Detroit could be the catalyst. "The Call Detroit" will gather at Ford Field this weekend, Friday, November 11, at 6 p.m. - Saturday, November 12, 6 p.m.
We are fully aware that we are gathering in a city that has been and is being mocked as a microcosm of our national crisis. A city whose extremely negative image displays economic collapse, racial tension, unusual and tangled corruption at every level, along with record shedding of the blood of our children in our streets and ...of our unborn. But that's the encouraging thing. Historically, in the Bible and in more recent decades, people have been prompted by God to fast and pray for a period of time, about their desparate circumstances and God responded to their desparate humilty, love for their city, repentance, and worship and did turn their city or nation back to God.
Because we have been challenged to do the same, thousands of Detroiters, Michiganders, and others have gladly embraced the sacrifices of prayer and fasting to ask God to turn our city and our nation around. So, we ask you to join us at Ford Field this weekend. This is a free event. The only cost is your sacrifice !
