Gather to Me My consecrated ones,
those who have made with Me
a covenant by sacrifice.
— Psalm 50:5

It's a fast, not a festival. 

CONTEND is not about the exaltation of human personalities. We are about exalting the Lord and Him alone. 

Our nation is in desperate need of the mercy of God and another great spiritual awakening, which will only come as the Body of Christ gathers together in prayer. We must drop every barrier that divides us and unite in prayer with the promise that God will pour out His Spirit (Joel 2). 

Let's believe that campuses, cities, and even arenas and stadiums will be filled with fasting and prayer, signs and wonders, and the proclamation of the gospel.
