Cry Out for Awakening 9-11-09

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Arise in my spirit, shine through my life today. ... "Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you" (Ephesians 5:14). Across America today, people will join together for prayer, hand in hand and heart to heart, at noon at county courthouses in every county of every state. Our prayers will not only mark the tragic death of so many lives in the terrorist attack against our nation on September 11, 2001, but our prayers will cry out to You for another spiritual awakening in our hearts and across our land. In times of great desperation and in response to times of great prayer, You have sent Your great awakenings to remind us of our great God and our great calling to proclaim the good news of Your kingdom "to all the nations" (Matthew 24:14). We cry out for a great awakening in our day. "Sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord" (Joel 1:14). On behalf of our nation, we join together today from every tongue and tribe and denomination as one body in the humility of prayer, confession, and repentance before You to turn from our wicked ways and turn again to You, that You may hear from heaven, heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). O God, remind us and restore to our prophetic destiny as a nation, to be a voice of liberty and freedom in the earth, and advocate for the oppressed, and a light to the nations. You are alone are the Source of that light. You alone are the Source of that voice that declares "Freedom!" to the souls of men. So the awakening we seek is an awakening of our hearts to be yielded to Yours. And we pray the same for all people of every nation, until the glory of the Lord covers the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14). In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays Friends, for information on Noon Prayers today, 9-11, at county courthouses across America: I'll be joining the group at the Fayette County Courthouse in downtown Lexington. And I will be in agreement in prayer with you at your courthouse, and in agreement with my friends in other nations for spiritual awakening in your nation.
