Over the weekend, Hurricane Irma made landfall. After Hurricane Harvey brought extreme devastation across Texas, many Southeastern residents were preparing for what this next storm would bring.
Many Floridians prepared by evacuating, boarding up their homes, stocking up on food, and other common pre-natural disaster to-dos. Now, reports are coming out about another inspiring way that people prepared for the storm: through prayer and worship.
Many people have been demonstrating their faith in the midst of the storm. During the havoc of Hurricane Harvey, President Trump made a bold move by declaring a National Day of Prayer for the victims. Now, politicians and residents continue to display their faith through prayer and worship.
On Monday, Governor Rick Scott urged people to pray. He said that prayer should always be the first resort, and not the last one.
On Saturday, President Trump and his Cabinet began their emergency planning meeting at Camp David with prayer, led by Vice President Pence.
While the leaders of the nation were praying from Camp David, Floridian residents were turning to God as well. The footage below shows many gathered on a beach before the storm hit to sing "The Great I Am," a powerful worship song.
The lyrics say, "Hallelujah, holy, holy. God almighty, the great I AM. Who is worthy? None beside Thee. God almighty, the great I AM."
Another portion of the song says, "The mountains shake before You. The demons run and flee. At the mention of the name, King of Majesty. There is no power in Hell, nor any who can stand, before the power and the presence of the great I AM."
