On Sept. 11, our nation will pause to remember the
greatest “wake-up” call in our generation, the terrorist attacks on
9/11/01. As part of “Cry Out, America,” a call is being issued for
Christians across the nation to mark this significant day in our history
with powerful prayer for America and the lost individuals of this
Do you remember Sept. 11, 2001, seven years ago?
Did you believe that our nation could have such a horrible disaster? I
thought it was a prank for a short time and then realized that, indeed,
something terrible was happening. After our anger came a time of prayer.
Do you remember the public prayer meetings that were taking place in our
county, at the courthouse, at the Hamilton site and at our churches? We
were turning to prayer with such faith and enthusiasm.
“We believe that our Lord is raising up the for
such a time as this to be used by Him to help bring revival to the
Church and spiritual awakening to the nation. I encourage everyone to
become involved,” said Billy Wilson of the Awakening America Alliance.
This is a cooperative initiative within the body of
Christ to increase awareness of the deep spiritual need in today’s
America and to pursue a new Christ awakening in our nation that will
impact the world.
The Alliance is mobilizing Christians to
participate in Cry Out, America in all 3,141 counties in the nation and
hopes there will be a time of prayer for their community, friends and
family, and for the spiritual condition of our nation.
“America is a nation in great spiritual decline as
evidenced by current statistics which show that only 17% of Americans
attend church on any given Sunday and that America is the third largest
mission field in the world,” said John Franklin of the Cry Out, America
D.L. Moody said, “Every great movement of God can
be traced to a kneeling figure.”
Let us all fall on our knees in prayer for our
nation on this Thursday, Sept. 11, 2008.
“God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam,
God bless America, my home sweet home.”
