US president declares Sunday "Day of Prayer" for Hurricane victims

He hailed the “American spirit of service” that he observed in the men and women who came to the aid of victims of the historic flooding and storm damage in Texas and Louisiana.

Washington Times reports that the US president signed a declaration stating that is was appropriate “during times of great need to ask for God’s blessing and God’s guidance.”

According to the reports, Trump signed the declaration on Friday, September 1, after meeting with faith leaders in the Oval Office.

“Brave first responders have rescued those stranded in drowning cars and rising water,” he said.

“And I have to tell you, I’ve watched the Coast Guard, thousands of lives have been saved by our great Coast Guard.”

Trump also commended the efforts of 'everyday heroes' who came to the rescue of friends, neighbours and strangers.
