Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
On September 11, 2011 we have what I believe is an unprecedented opportunity to mobilize the American church toward prayer for a new spiritual Awakening. 9-11-11 will be the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America and is also on a Sunday this year. Spiritual energy and public awareness will be very high for 9-11, especially considering the continued crises we face as a nation. On this historic Sunday, we are requesting that local churches commit to a moment of remembrance and prayer during their Sunday service as part of Cry Out America. We are also encouraging county public prayer gatherings to take place across the nation and we anticipate over 1,000 counties participating this year with every county whose population is over 1 million (38 of these) already scheduled.
Hundreds of churches have already registered to unite in prayer on 9-11 and I would deeply appreciate your help in calling your network of ministries to join us. Would you please consider an email blast to your list of local churches and ministries asking them to join this effort on 9-11 this year? In addition, I am asking you to consider placing a banner on your website announcing this initiative.

When a church registers to pray during Cry Out America they will receive free resources to help in preparation for that day and be connected with other churches in their county who are also praying on this unique Sunday. We are not requesting that a local church dedicate their entire Sunday gathering to prayer for our nation, though many are doing this. We are asking simply that at some point in their service they have focused prayer for America.
Hundreds of churches have already signed up to Cry Out on 9-11 and we believe that with all of us working together this could be one of the greatest days of local church, united prayer in America's history. I still believe that through united, extraordinary prayer, judgment can be averted, healing can be realized and a new awakening can be witnessed in our generation.
Your partnership and help for Cry Out America this year is deeply appreciated. Please let me know how we can serve you further as we continue.
Uniting Together for America's Future,
