Trump Declares Sept. 3 As National Day of Prayer For Hurricane Victims

President Trump yesterday issued a Proclamation (full text) declaring Sept. 3 as a "National Day of Prayer for the Victims of Hurricane Harvey and for our National Response and Recovery Efforts." The Proclamation reads in part:
As response and recovery efforts continue, and as Americans provide much needed relief to the people of Texas and Louisiana, we are reminded of Scripture's promise that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."  Melania and I are grateful to everyone devoting time, effort, and resources to the ongoing response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts.  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.
