Americans Gather to Pray on 9/11 Anniversary

Ad Feedback

Remembering the heroes and the victims of the 9/11 attacks is not the only agenda on Friday, prayer is also a top priority for Americans as well.

A Christian group called the Awakening America Alliance, or AAA is organizing prayer meetings at county courthouses across the country on Sept. 11.   

"We are in a spiritual crisis in this nation. We are in confusion, politically, morally, and all around us," said Billy Wilson, executive cabinet chairman of the AAA. "And this is the day when the church needs to be the most vigilant.  So we're praying there will be a real season of awakening, first in the church, and then of course to affect the culture for Christ in a big way."
At a service in New York Thursday evening, Sujo John, a 9/11 survivior, recalled fleeing the World Trade Center with co-workers and convincing them to call on the name of Jesus. 

John worked on the 81st floor of Tower 1, and his wife Mary worked in Tower 2.  They say it was through God's grace that they both survived to tell their story of the tragic events of that day.

From that day on, John dedicated his life to ministry.
