DETROIT – One of the people involved in organizing a recent 24-hour prayer rally at Detroit’s Ford Field says the event drew about 27,400 people.
Apostle Ellis Smith of Detroit’s Jubilee City Church told the Detroit Free Press that the TheCall event Friday and Saturday was “phenomenal.”
The gathering at the stadium where the Detroit Lions play was designed to tackle issues such as the economy, racial strife, same-sex relationships and abortion.
Leaders of TheCall believe a satanic spirit is shaping all parts of U.S. society, and it must be challenged through intensive Christian prayer and fasting.
TheCall counts Islam among the ills facing the nation. The Detroit area has one of the largest Muslim communities in the United States.
