The designation is with regard to relief efforts from Hurricane Harvey.
Say what you want about President Trump, but we here at LGD are very heartened to see a U.S. President declaring a National Day of Prayer. After 8 years of Obama, we weren’t sure we’d ever see that again.
In making this declaration, President Trump joins with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has made the same declaration for his state.
Prayer is powerful and should not be underestimated!

President Trump has just declared Sunday to be ‘a National Day of Prayer,’ joining with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott who has also called on Texans to pray for recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey.
The governor of Texas is calling on his fellow Texans and people around the country to pray for Texas on Sunday.

The governor is urging people to pray for the safety of first responders, public safety officers and military personnel involved in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
He’s also calling for prayers for the “healing of individuals, rebuilding of communities and the restoration of the entire region struck by this disaster.”
Abbott applauded Texans for helping each other through the ordeal and noted they are grateful for the support and resources they’ve received in days since Harvey struck.
Thank you President Trump! We applaud your move!
Not to us, O Lord, not to us,
But to Your name be the glory
Because of Your love and your faithfulness!
