U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement to mark the National Day of Prayer:
"Prayer has united Americans on our nation's darkest days, but it is also a daily, guiding compass for so many of us as we seek the Lord's will for our lives.
"I would ask that as we mark this National Day of Prayer that we remember our fellow Texans and Americans who have experienced tremendous loss over the past year. Please join me in daily prayer for our men and women in uniform, their families and our veterans who have sacrificed so that we may be safe and free.
"May God bless you, and may He continue to bless the Great State of Texas."
