Intercessors will gather in Dallas to lift up prayer for mercy on America, the rescuing of our children and healing of women on Good Friday as part of TheEstherCall, a special gathering of Lou Engle’s TheCall.
“When Esther fasted and prayed it had life and death urgency to it,” Engle said. “The sound of that urgency today and particularly for TheEstherCall has not yet been recognized.”
Engle is calling for 2,000 “Mordecais” to pray alongside women at the special event. He senses God’s providential timing on the moment, especially considering that the U.S. Supreme Court is holding six hours of hearings on the constitutionality of President Obama’s health-care reform just days from now.
“It has been decades since the Supreme Court has given this amount of time for arguments. So much is at stake with this hearing,” Engle said. “Aside from the implications on the national debt, government mandated health care, and religious liberties, the thing that strikes me the deepest is the administration’s argument for full contraceptive coverage. Contraception is a smoke screen in the argument because included is the systemization of the RU 486 pill, the Ella pill and other abortifacients.”
As Engle sees it, if the Supreme Court rules for the constitutionality of this health-care reform it could forever embed abortion into the soul of this nation by delivering a widespread entitlement for all Americans to obtain insurance-covered abortions beginning at conception. Engle said America is on the slippery slope of a great rebellion perpetrated by a perverted science and only the prophetic praying church can rise to challenge these powers.
“This is exactly what Esther did in her day. Her urgency, her sacrifice and her public proclamation opened a portal for God to act, and the ‘Supreme Court’ of Haman was overruled by the Supreme Court of heaven. We are at such an Esther moment now,” Engle says. “It is not by chance that TheEstherCall coincides with the very season when the Supreme Court will be deliberating over this historic and monumental decision. We are at a door of a massive cultural shift that will be as significant as Roe v. Wade was in 1973.”
Like Mordecai, Engle is calling for 7,000 women—Esthers—at personal cost to gather to TheEstherCall on April 5-6 to fast and pray for God’s intervention, the reversal of Roe v. Wade and His rulership over the Supreme Court justices in this present case being heard.
“On Good Friday, the Esthers will apply the blood of Jesus to the doorposts of our national guilt and pray for mercy in the nation. This gathering is for all women, young and old, post and non-abortive women, every woman who cares. Come and represent millions of post-abortive women whose pain is unbearable and whose cry has been stifled by fear and shame,” Engle says.
“Come and pray for the voices of righteous American women to be heard in the public forum. It is time for Queen Esther to arise. I have to believe that the God of Esther is the same God today, and when she appears before Him, everything can shift. Who knows that for such a time as this, you have been brought into the kingdom.”
