On Patriot Day, 9-11, we will once again be gathering in venues across the nation to cry out to God for an awakening in America.
Patriot Day is an annual observance held on the 11th of September, and Cry Out America invites people to pray for the nation, in remembrance of the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The day was created in 2001 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by George W. Bush.
The Joint Resolution proclaims that:
"The President is requested to issue each year a proclamation calling on—
- State and local governments and the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate programs and activities;
- all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States and interested organizations and individuals to display the flag of the United States at halfstaff on Patriot Day in honor of the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001; and
- the people of the United States to observe a moment of silence on Patriot Day in honor of the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States that occurred on September 11, 2001.
Cry Out America, as an initiative of The National Day of Prayer Task Force, a privately funded organization whose purpose is to mobilize unified public prayer for America. Our goal is to mobilize the Christian community across denominational boundaries to intercede for the family, church, education, media and entertainment, business, and government in our nation.
Together we will cry out to God for the healing of our land. We are counting on the involvement of the body of Christ across the nation as we pursue the goal of networking this growing prayer movement to create the strongest, most comprehensive net to catch the Last Days harvest.
