Watch Rise Up LIVE on GOD TV on October 9th
GOD TV is to broadcast Rise Up LIVE from the National Mall in Washington, DC on Columbus Day, October 9th – an all-day event that challenges women of all ages to rise up like ‘Deborah and Esther’ did in the Bible and bring about positive change in their families, communities, and nations.
Hosted by TheCall, Rise Up is part of Awaken The Dawn, a four-day event taking place this holiday weekend in the US capital and will feature various women speakers. These include Beni Johnson, Lisa Bevere, Cindy Jacobs, Devi Titus, Wendi Griffith, Alveda King, Katherine Ruonala, Kristina Sabestinas, Kelsey Bohlender, Dehavilland Ford, Bethany Temple, Elizabeth Tiam Fook, Adrianna Simon, Shara Pradhan Chalmers, Sandi Mcguire, Ivy Chua, Rebecca Francis and Melissa Medina.
Worship will be led by female recording artists and bands including Julissa Rivera, Lindy Conant and the Circuit Riders, Nicole Mullen, Far Flung Tin Can and Forever Jones. Lou Engle who is the founder of The Call and Raleigh Washington who is the leader of Promise Keepers will also address the gathering.
“I believe the collective cry of one million mothers around the world is going to birth a movement that is greater than anything we have ever seen,” says Cindy Jacobs of Generals International.
“This is the time for women and girls in America and around the world to wake up and rise up,” says American activist, Dr Alveda King, the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King.
“Rise Up calls virtuous woman from across the globe of all colors and strands,” says Lou Engle. “This includes Protestant and Catholic, Evangelical and Pentecostal; Asian, Hispanic, Anglo, African and Native; Democrat, Republican and Independent women, encouraging them to make their presence known and let their voice be heard.
“This is more than an invitation, it is a divine subpoena to bring the unique witness and moral authority of women to bear on the deception at the heart of our nation. Could hundreds of thousands of women proclaim that America shall be saved, choose life and see her children walking with God? On October 9, can a nation be saved in a day? Yes, when our women rise up.
“We invite mothers and daughters to rise together – devout women of every age, race and denomination; single women, mothers of children as well as spiritual mothers,” says Lou. “Will you give voice to the pain and hope of our divided nation? Can you release fresh intercession for a lost generation?”
Rise Up follows a similar event in 1997 when a million men responded to the call at the Promise Keepers Stand in the Gap mass gathering on the National Mall. Now on the 20th Anniversary of that significant event, mothers from across America are joining together to proclaim hope and healing for their nation. Furthermore, through the power of the airwaves, many more women worldwide will be able to participate via GOD TV.
Rise Up LIVE on GOD TV
GOD TV President and CEO, Ward Simpson says GOD TV goes to great lengths to bring our viewers LIVE events like this. “We look to see what God is doing around the globe because we’re praying for national and international revival,” he says. “Rise Up is an amazing, anointed opportunity that we are privileged to televise thanks to the support of our faithful partners. These are serious days we are living in and all God’s people need to rise up and pray. Prayer is key for without prayer we have no power.”
Women, God is calling you, like Esther, for such a time as this. Men, God is calling you like Mordechai to be a support to the women in your life. Tune in to GOD TV and rise up! See our online schedule for viewing times.
