Prayer Initiative Organized for 9/11 Anniversary

While preparing the kids for
another school year, you may add joining in united prayer to your
to-do list.

In the months leading up to
the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Assemblies
of God and the Awakening American Alliance are working to make their
Cry Out America prayer initiative a top priority.

The partnering groups believe
that just as America was “shaken to its foundation” 10 years ago,
the country needs to be shook again—this time with a Christ

With a recessed economy, a
dissolving church attendance and lack of absolute truth, united
prayer seems to be the preferred means to battle America’s critical
spiritual condition.

John Maempa, director of the
Office of Prayer and Spiritual Care says: “Desperate times call for
desperate measures. We must seek God as never before for the moral
and spiritual well-being of our nation. Pray that a powerful move of
the Holy Spirit will transform our churches to become
transformational in the culture.”

Masses continue to hear the
cliche that history repeats itself and the Awakening America Alliance
seems to agree with the phrase. The Tennessee-based organization’s
website states, “The historical patterns of America’s Great
Awakenings indicate that it is in precisely this type of seemingly
hopeless national environment that God chooses to move in response to
the cries of His people.”

Pastors, volunteering county coordinators, believers and churches, regardless of denomination, will organize prayer gatherings. Some have even began the initiative earlier this month and will continue through Sept. 11, taking on 10 consecutive weeks of community prayer. Regardless of length, either 10 weeks, one day, or anywhere in between, supporters seek to follow structured prayer guides to return strengthen America’s biblical foundation and to pray for the Holy Spirit to touch “every state, every county and every heart.”
