Charisma | 3 Major Prayer Points to See America Awakened This National Day of Prayer

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 on September 11, please contact us at

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.

Our Three Major Prayer Points for Cry Out America on Monday, Sept. 11

I want to call out to each prayer gathering to join in agreement. These three major needs in our nation coincide with our continual needs since 9/11. Feel free to download and share this image on social media to spread the word.

Cry out in unified public prayer on Monday, Sept. 11, for the following points:

1. Unity in America that will lead to a Christ-awakening in America

2. Security inside our nation and for all Americans across the world

3. Protection for all first responders and military personnel

Whether in your personal life or prayer gatherings you participate in on this day, please agree in prayer with thousands of others who are praying for our nation.
