In what was a markedly different "Women's March" from the one the day after the 2017 presidential inauguration, women responded to a clarion call from Lou Engle of TheCall.com and gathered on the D.C. Mall to rise up and pray in the rain yesterday.

Joined by national men prayer leaders such as Dr. Raleigh Washington of Promise Keepers and the Rev. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life who offered apologies for abuse of women and the abortion of millions of babies there were remarkable moments of repentance, forgiveness and healing — throughout this eventful day.

Leaders and thousands gathered from all ethnic groups, praying for ethnic unity based on the themes of one race united from the Acts Chapter 17:26 message of one human race, "One Blood," as the message of Esthers and Deborahs joined by Mordecais with women, mothers and daughters "rising up" and praying for spiritual transformation prevailed throughout the day.

At one intense moment, after Dr. Alveda C. King quoted the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish together as fools," Cindy Jacobs of Generals International sobbed on her knees in "Apology to Black Women" prayer leaders: "I'm sorry we didn't protect your babies." Dr. Alveda C. King of Civil Rights for The Unborn embraced Jacobs in a prayer of unity and forgiveness. For more please go here.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C.
