Following the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation Thursday calling for a day of prayer. In his proclamation, the governor asked Texas residents of all faiths to come together Sunday and pray for military personnel, first responders, public safety officers and those affected by the storm.


“Throughout our history, Texans have been strengthened and lifted through prayer, and it is fitting that Texans join together in prayer in this time of crisis,” Abbott said. “Throughout this disaster, we have seen the power of Texans helping Texans, and I am hopeful this proclamation will bring people together once more. We have remained strong throughout this ordeal, and this Day of Prayer will make us even stronger together.”
