"Prayer is powerful. We know that," the Fort Worth chief of police Dr. Joel Fitzgerald said. "Sometimes not accepted everywhere."
President Trump declared Sunday a national day of prayer in the wake of the storm's devastation.
"Nothing makes us more apolitical than a natural disaster," Fitzgerald told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday, adding that Harvey has pulled his department together.
"This isn't a time to worry about whether we're blue or red or whatever," the police chief said. "It's a time to all pitch in in the spirit of what we're doing here in Texas and solve a problem."
Houston has received help from other cities' police departments, relief groups, and even citizen rescuers who traveled to the area with their private boats.
