Dominionist Lou Engle, known for organizing large prayer rallies under the banner of “The Call,” is sounding an “urgent call” for a three-day fast to break the “unprecedented global summons of witchcraft to curse President Trump, his Cabinet and all of those aligned with a biblical worldview.” Jennifer LeClaire wrote about a globally coordinated witchcraft attack on Trump in her Charisma column two weeks ago.
Engle writes in Charisma that a gathering he attended three years ago in Virginia was “sovereignly hijacked” by the Lord, who gave the participating prayer warriors a vision of a million women gathering on the National Mall as “a last-stand breakthrough to hold back darkness in America.” But no such event was organized. Instead, “a false heiress rushed in” in the form of the Women’s March that took place the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration. This false heiress was seeking “to become the hinge of history by framing the narrative of a future America that does not acknowledge God’s exalted view of women and His biblical design for her glorious purpose in the earth.”
Millions of people experienced the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and its counterparts all over the world as peaceful and even joyful expressions of values the participants intended to defend during the Trump administration. But Engle saw sinister forces at work:
The Women’s March was the first shot across the bow, heralding a revolutionary rise against the president of the United States, “We the people” and in reality, the foundational biblical truths upon which our nation was founded. Soon after, the second shot was manifested publicly: an unprecedented global summons of witchcraft to curse President Trump, his Cabinet and all of those aligned with a biblical worldview. Suddenly, the whole controversy was elevated to a global spiritual dimension, inaugurating a spiritual battle that cannot be won on the playing field of protests and political arguments.
Only the church has the answer to this unprecedented manifestation of witchcraft. Spiritual strategy must be used to overcome this open-faced, brazen challenge of the powers.
Engle writes that he recently experienced “a life-changing dream where I saw a nation-wide Esther movement arising that alone could break a major spiritual power of death.” In the Bible, the book of Esther tells the story of a Jewish woman who risked her life to save her people from Haman, an evil adviser who had convinced her husband, the king of Persia, to exterminate the kingdom’s Jews. Engle says that the three-day fast Esther organized when she learned of the plan “broke the spiritual power channeled by Haman’s witchcraft.”
Americans face a similar “cataclysmic battle for the soul of our nation,” Engle says. And that is why he is calling for American Christians to engage in a three-day fast beginning at sundown this Wednesday and continuing through the evening of Saturday, March 11. The Jewish festival of Purim, which celebrates the story of Esther, begins this year that evening.
Engle is among a large number of self-proclaimed apostles and prophets who will be taking part in a POTUS Shield gathering this weekend in Ohio. Organizers say this “anointed assembly” will bring “intercession, prayers, declarations, and decrees of The Word of the Lord over our nation to the Heartbeat State of Ohio.” According to promotional materials, participants will include Frank Amedia, Alveda King, Harry Jackson, Cindy Jacobs, Lance Wallnau, Jerry Boykin, Rick Joyner, Jennifer LeClaire, and more.
