'Powers of Darkness in America that Could Only Be Broken by Women': See the Esther Generation 'Rise Up'

'Powers of Darkness in America that Could Only Be Broken by Women': See the Esther Generation 'Rise Up' Read Transcript

WENDY GRIFFITH: An incredible, powerful day

of prayer here on the DC mall.

Despite the rain, tens of thousands of women

and a lot of men have come out to pray

to cry out to God on behalf of their children, their families,

and our nation.

LOU ENGLE: --in our, a bursting something for America.

WENDY GRIFFITH: The call founder, Lou Engle,

says this event was birthed in a dream where

he saw a huge gathering of women called to save their nation,

who like Esther in the Bible, was called to save her people.

LOU ENGLE: There were certain powers of darkness in America

that could only be broken by women.

It was the hour where witches worldwide

were cursing President Trump on this feminist movement rising

that is not founded on the word of God

and is funding Planned Parenthood.

And I knew it was a time to call the Esthers.

WENDY GRIFFITH: Christian music artist, Nicole C. Mullen,

says she felt compelled to be here.

NICOLE C. MULLEN: After they put out the vision of we're

calling Deborahs and Esthers to come to DC

to crowd on behalf of life and on behalf of each other

and on behalf of just breaking down

the divide, the racial divide that

exists, when they put that call out, I was like, absolutely.


If I have to ride my bicycle, I'm coming, you know?

The church has sometimes had a problem with women leading.

I think it's beautiful that we can be feminine

and we can be leaders and we can follow Christ

and bring the church into its higher calling.

We are going to fight for truth.

Feminists come together, but they come together only

for what benefits women, and God will not bless

what does not benefit all.

So I think that's what makes this a very historic gathering.

BROOKE: It's like a counter of the Women's March that

happened after the inauguration, and it's

standing all for what the Bible says women are.

And that we're not independent, but the word, dependent on God,

and it's just a beautiful thing to be a part of.

WENDY GRIFFITH: In an age where abortion rights have

come to be equated in the minds of many with women's rights,

these women cried out to God to end legal abortion in America.

They put tape over their mouths with the word life

to represent the silent cries of the unborn.

LOU ENGLE: God is saying it is the hour for women,

and in many ways women, turn the tide of history.

We need you, women of God, right now,

to give birth to a new day of salvation in America.

WENDY GRIFFITH: Wendy Griffith, CBS News on the National Mall.
