President Trump signed a declaration in the Oval Office this afternoon to make Sunday a National Day of Prayer for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Trump and the First Lady will head back to Texas and Louisiana tomorrow to assess the damage and the recovery efforts.
Pastor Robert Jeffress, of First Baptist Church in Dallas, then led a prayer for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and for the president and vice president.
“I was honored to stand next to the president,” Jeffress told Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Jeffress said Trump is the most powerful man in the world, yet not too “proud” to “bow his head in the Oval Office and ask God for help.”
Jeffress prayed for “spiritual healing” in the country, calling the United States “bitterly divided for decades upon decades.”
“Now you have given us a gift. President Donald Trump, who wants to bring healing to this country and he is bringing healing to this country,” he said.
