President Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended services Sunday morning at St. John’s Church in downtown Washington, marking what the president proclaimed as a national day of prayer in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation.
The first couple arrived for 10:30 a.m. services at St. John’s, a 19th-century Episcopal church across Lafayette Square from the White House. Presidents historically have visited St. John’s, including Trump, who attended services there on the morning of his inauguration, Jan. 21.
During a meeting last Friday with evangelical leaders, the president signed a proclamation making Sunday a national day of prayer. Speaking from the Oval Office, Trump said, “From the beginning of our nation, Americans have joined together in prayer during times of great need to ask for God’s blessing and God’s guidance.”
