A prayer vigil for Bay Area youth will be held on May 15 at the Downtown Youth Center (DYC). Organizers of the event, “The Call: Extreme”, is hoping to attract Christian club leaders from every campus around the area to attend the revival-oriented event.

Andrew Hao, one of the organizers of the event and a Christian club leader at Lynbrook High School in San Jose announced that leaders who were interested in participating met on Sunday May 9 @ 3:30PM-6:00PM at the Downtown Youth Center to pray in agreement and support for the May 15 event.

“What we're asking is for at least one leader from each campus come and support us in prayer as we seek God's plan and direction for The Call: Extreme,” said Hao in an e-mail he sent out.

Hao also released this description of the 24-hour prayer vigil provided by another organizer:

"It will be 24 hours w/ no agenda but to seek God's face for the students of our valley. We will start midnight May 15 @ DYC and end midnight May 16 @ DYC. The first midnight shift till 9am we will challenge leaders/students to commit to pray for 2 hour shifts.

"Starting at 9am in the morning on May 15 we will invite all youth/college pastors, students, youth workers or those who have a heart for youth revival to come and pray and fast together till 9pm. This will be the main 12 hour shift as some youth may not be able to stay till midnight.

"The final 3 hours from 9pm-Midnight will be for those who can stay to finish off the 24 hour prayer vigil.

"The goal of this gathering is 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

"There is no agenda but to seek God to release revival on every campus in the Silicon Valley."
