Dear Men, Women, and Students of Prayer,
We need to mobilize thousands of churches and ministries, comprised of millions of people who will pray for America this month. Our nation needs prayer beyond what it has ever needed before.
Join us in this grand effort to rally as many people as possible to pray for America this month according to these suggested prayer priorities. Just imagine how powerful it would be if each of us did this. Please join us now.
Share these prayer priorities everywhere you can and join us as we rally people in prayer for America this September.
PRAYER PRIORITY #1: ASK GOD TO BE A SHIELD IN AND AROUND OUR NATION AS WE PRAY ON SEPTEMBER 11 AND THEN EACH DAY THIS MONTH, FOR THE SECURITY AND PROTECTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

PRAYER PRIORITY #2: APPEAL TO GOD FOR HIM TO RAISE UP RIGHTEOUS LEADERS ACROSS OUR NATION IN EVERY SPHERE OF INFLUENCE IN AMERICA.
