(Worthy News) - This weekend's worship festivities on the National Mall will culminate on Monday in the form of a day-long women-led worship rally in which people from all across the United States will be called to pray for a "Jesus Movement" to sweep the nation and foster racial reconciliation, gender equality, and for an end to abortion.
Thousands of women are expected to gather in Washington, D.C. for "Rise Up," a worship-focused revival calling on Americans to repent for the country's history of racial and gender-based injustices and for the country's embrace of abortion.
The women's worship rally comes just over 20 years after hundreds of thousands of Christians gathered on the National Mall on Oct. 4, 1997, for the male-centered Promise Keepers' Stand in the Gap rally. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
