First Lady and Trump at church on National Day of Prayer”

Freedom to Pray, a nonprofit organization advocating free participation in prayer groups, is encouraging individuals of all faiths to unite on Sunday, Sept. 3, for a national day of prayer for Hurricane Harvey victims, as declared by President Trump.

As President Trump looks toward a month already filled with must-do items, crises of both domestic and worldwide import collided on him Sunday. The National Day of Prayer for Hurricane Harvey Victims, as declared by President Trump, follows other historic presidential prayer declarations dating back to President Lincoln.

They arrived at 10:30 a.m.at St. John's Church, a 19th-century Episcopal church across Lafayette Square from the White House.

Trump attended services at St John's also on the morning of his inauguration on January 21.

The option of a military response was also suggested in an early morning tweet from the president.

The president and his national security advisers planned to meet Sunday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sara Huckabee Sanders said.

The self-described Presbyterian typically attends church only on holidays or special occasions.

The proclamation says the entire nation grieves with Texas and Louisiana and we pray for healing and comfort for those in need.

Trump's church visit comes the day after he visited Texas - for a second time since Harvey's landfall - and Louisiana.

"I think a prayer would be uttering from your mouth the words that are in your heart saying, 'Dear God, I don't know necessarily at times what to pray, but I just ask you to be with us today, '" Dr. Floyd, senior pastor of Cross Church said.

"Tomorrow's a major day, so go to your congregation and implore and appreciate the day", the president coordinated typhoon casualties and people on call amid his visit to Texas on Saturday.
