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.
Our gathering for the Washington D.C. area will be held at David's Tent, situated in Constitution Gardens at the southwest corner of Constitution Avenue and 17th Street NW.
