Don't Forget To Pray...

Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States on August 29, 2005 with a force and fury that was both unexpected and unprecedented. Our nation has reeled in the aftermath of this mighty storm. We have watched extraordinary events unfold, listened to the myriad concerns and seen the magnanimous acts of charity and kindness on the part of untold thousands. The loss and heartbreak of the people of that region cannot be tallied and will continue for years to come.

On Thursday, September 8, President George W. Bush called for a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the victims of Hurricane Katrina to be held on Friday, September 16, 2005. He is asking Americans to gather in support of those who continue to struggle. Calling for prayers of gratitude and thanksgiving to God for the generosity shown by our nation, he said, "We will strive together in this effort, and we will prevail through perseverance and prayer."
