“It doesn’t matter what faith or religion or belief that you have. This is a time for Texans and Americans to unite and pray for thanksgiving for those who have risked their lives,” Abbot told Fox and Friends. “The first responders and volunteers who’ve supported our fellow Texans, but also pray for the victims of this horrific storm. And we want to unite as one state and one nation.”
