Cry Out America
Patriot Day 9/11

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.
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.
