Trump Declares Sunday a National Day of Prayer for People Affected by Harvey


President Donald Trump on Friday signed a proclamation declaring Sunday, Sept. 3, a national day of prayer to think of those who are facing the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.

"We invite all Americans to join us as we continue to pray for those who have lost family members and friends and those who are suffering from this great crisis," Trump said in the Oval Office as he signed the order.

His proclamation came one day after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R.) signed an order designating Sunday as a day of prayer in Texas, which has been devastated by Harvey in recent days.

The signing ceremony in the White House on Friday featured several faith leaders.

"Behind me, we have faith based people who are highly respected, especially so in their communities, where they're not only respected but loved," Trump said. "Evangelical leaders, Christian leaders, many people of faith, and I just want to thank you all for being with us today because we're going to be signing a day of prayer and that will be on Sunday. It'll be a very special day."
