On Monday, Governor Greg Abbott attended the Texas National Day of Prayer Breakfast in Austin where he joined Texans across the state in prayer.

During the annual breakfast, Governor Abbott spoke about the importance of faith and the power of prayer.

"As Texans we never shy away from a challenge, and whatever your challenge may be the best way to overcome it is through your connection with God," said Governor Abbott.

He also said, "I pray all Texans are strong and courageous in their faith and never be afraid or discouraged, as faith will not fail you."
