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 country.

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 team.

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.”
