Many pause to pray amid Harvey recovery efforts
HOUSTON - Worshippers and relief workers are pausing from their chores across South Texas to seek God's favor as the area rebuilds.
Hurricane Harvey hit the region with high winds on Aug. 25 and then dumped more than four feet of rain in the Houston area days later. While the Gulf Coast suffers in miserable conditions from Corpus Christi, Texas, northward into Louisiana, the theme in many sermons Sunday was that God is greater.
The St. Joseph Catholic Church in Port Aransas hasn't had power since the storm but set out holy water and bug spray for parishioners before services Sunday morning. Many anointed themselves with both.
A less-formal group met and prayed outside a relief station on the beach town's main road.
