Prayer Summit

Man Praying

A Call To Prayer

It all began Feb 9, 1958 . . . On February 9th 1958 God put a burden on the heart of David Wilkerson to focus on prayer and spend less time watching TV. He put an advertisement in the newspaper to sell his TV and told the Lord, that if it sells in the first 30 minutes that the newspapers hit homes, that he would know that it was God truly speaking to him to sell it.

Before 30 minutes had passed, David Wilkerson received a call and sold his TV. This was the beginning of 19 days of prayer that laid the foundation for a trip to New York City that led to the birth of Teen Challenge.

During his time of prayer, the February 24th edition of LIFE Magazine landed on his desk. A story of 7 boys on trial for the murder of Michael Farmer caught his eye. As he read the story, the Lord spoke 4 words, "Go help those boys." He decided to drive to New York City and go to the trial. On February 28, David stood in the courtroom on a mission from God. He did not back down from the call as the Lord confirmed that assignment.

From that day, the Spirit of the Lord began to establish Teen Challenge in the heart of his servant, David Wilkerson. I believe each and every leader of Teen Challenge around the world can have a moment like this,. We all need that moment when the Spirit of God speaks clearly to their heart to "help those boys." or girls, or children. I pray God will refresh, restore and renew our call to help the hurting, the lost and the addicted.
