Cry Out America 9/11 Prayer Events Unite the Nation

news leader.jpgCry Out America events were held across the nation on Thursday, September 11, 2014, at county courthouses, churches, prisons, pregnancy care centers, university campuses, and homes. Marking the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, this was not simply a day of remembrance and mourning, but a time for ecumenical, cross-generational prayer focused on the spiritual condition of communities and the nation. Setting aside racial, cultural, and denominational differences, hundreds of thousands of mainline Evangelical, Pentecostal/Charismatic, Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish believers from all backgrounds gathered at more than 3,000 prayer points across the nation to cry out for awakening in America.

A spirit of patriotism permeated the atmosphere as state patrol honor guards, led by Scottish bag pipe players, presented the nation’s colors. Voices of all ages were heard echoing the national anthem across courthouse squares. First responders and U.S. military personnel were honored for their sacrifices. Prison inmates offered prayers in their cells, marketplace leaders paused in their board meetings to pray for awakening in America, and parishioners gathered at their church altars to express a dependency upon God. Radio stations broadcast event programming live, reaching thousands, who were not able to join on-site events.

“Too often the devastating news of tragedy, natural disasters, and violence fills the air waves and threatens to extinguish the spirit of hopeful Americans,” comments Cry Out America national coordinator Kay Horner. “Yet on September 11, 2014, hundreds of thousands of voices were raised in prayer with great expectation that today’s dreams will awaken tomorrow’s destiny.”  To learn more about the Awakening America Alliance, an organization purposed to “provide a broad umbrella under which the Body of Christ in America can unite together in seeking a contemporary spiritual awakening,” visit
