We Stand With You

As we have watched the stunning images and videos coming out of the Texas Gulf Coast area, we are deeply saddened by the devastation and loss that so many are facing from Hurricane Harvey. Leaders are telling us it is the worst disaster in our nation’s history let alone the most severe recording-breaking event in the state of Texas.

We have thousands of supporters in the areas affected and our team at My Faith Votes cares deeply about each one. We are lifting them up in prayer and support, long after the news trucks leave and the devastation remains.

Even in the storm, we have seen a light shine through the everyday heroes, the rescuers & responders, and through those praying from the outside looking in. Watching Americans unify and help each other gives us all so much hope.

Story after story of those who are affected remind me of the poignant lyrics by my friend and music artist, Jason Gray:

While I wait for the smoke to clear
You don't even have to speak
Just sit with me in the ashes here
And together we can pray for peace
To the One acquainted with our grief

Texas Governor Greg Abbott made a proclamation that Sunday, September 3rd, is a Texas Day of Prayer. United, we will join him in prayer for healing and hope.
