- US marks 9/11 anniversary with resolve, tears and hope
SEPTEMBER 11: A DAY OF PRAYER, A DAY TO CRY OUT TO GOD FOR AMERICA
As America works through the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, our nation is under the historic winds of Hurricane Irma. Our country is experiencing pain and loss of life and property. As these storms are bearing down on America and North Korea continues its threats against us, we are walking through times that are unknown to most in this generation. With all this in mind, we enter September 11 asking you to make this a special day of prayer, a day to cry out to God for America.
Cry Out America is a prayer initiative that began after terrorists attacked our nation on September 11, 2001.These planned attacks resulted in nearly 3,000 deaths, 400 of which were police officers and firefighters. Since that day, America and the world have never been the same.
Cry Out America reminds us of these attacks on our nation and of our desperate need for God each day. As America remembers this day, we need to see it become a day where millions of Americans join for a few moments in various locations to cry out to God for our nation.
We already know of a few thousand gatherings that will be taking place. If you are having a gathering with other Americans to talk to God about our nation today, please contact us at https://www.cryoutamerica.us/find_event.
Cry Out America was initiated by the Awakening America Alliance in 2008, but in order to strengthen the call nationwide, it was recently entrusted to the National Day of Prayer Task Force. Therefore, even in this late hour, I want to call upon all of us to focus on these matters as we Cry Out America.
