A Day Of Prayer Today

Texas Governor Greg Abbott set aside this Sunday, 9/3, as a day of prayer for Texas after Hurricane Harvey. Soon after, President Donald Trump signed an additional proclamation for “September 3, 2017, as a National Day of Prayer for the Victims of Harvey and for our National Response and Recovery Efforts”. President Trump wrote this in his proclamation. “From the beginning of our Nation, Americans have joined together in prayer during times of great need, to ask for God’s blessings and guidance. This tradition dates to June 12, 1775, when the Continental Congress proclaimed a day of prayer following the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and April 30, 1789, when President George Washington, during the Nation’s first Presidential inauguration, asked Americans to pray for God’s protection and favor….We are reminded of Scripture’s promise that ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.’…We invite all Americans to join us as we continue to pray for those who have lost family members or friends, and for those who are suffering in this time of crisis….Each of us, in our own way, may call upon our God for strength and comfort during this difficult time. I call on all Americans and houses of worship throughout the Nation to join in one voice of prayer, as we seek to uplift one another and assist those suffering from the consequences of this terrible storm.”
