Hola Todd

Here the main verb "decir" (que) has the same meaning as "pedir" (que), as in "asking someone to do something", therefore the subjunctive is needed. 

If you go into this lesson for pedir, you'll see by the end that we include information about decir as well. Have a look here.

I hope it helps.

Saludos cordiales

Inma
