Let it idle for a while so the water can boil or evaporate out of where it got in. The warm engine will speed the process.

My daughters 2007 Odyssey loses power in rain. It started when she went through a deep puddle coming from work at night. Now whenever there is rain it has little power.

Possible the trip throught the deep puddle soaked the alternatior when water got above the splash guard mounted on the under carrage suggest you check all of the electrical wiring amd relays to see if any are wet or are now exposed to the weather. Good luck. Fixes for deep puddle adventures can be difficult to find and fix.

Check the electrical system--distributor cap and plug leads for moisture. Check all wire connectors for water ingress and dry out. If you were driving for some time then the cat converter would be hot and immersion in water such as you describe is the best way to crack the insides and block up the exhaust.

I ran in to a pondle of water when it was raining now when i start my car it starts but it will cut off but i can sit there hold tha gas for a min then it be ok but sometimes it act like it want to cut off...

A car will stall when driven through standing water if the ignition system is not watertight. Worn spark plug wires and coil wire, improperly seated spark plug wires, or loose distributor cap are all possibilities.
There is a spray called CRC or some agent that promotes a water drying action can be used to dry out a wet distributor cap and wires. Drying off the electrical components will remove the moisture that is grounding the electrical energy that should normally go directly to the spark plugs.
If car will not restart after stalling from the water splashing as described in the question - and the poor condition of the electrical system is ruled out, some water may have passed through the air intake into the engine and perhaps into the cylinder. If this happens have the car towed to a repair shop where they can remove the water before any further damage results. This condition is not easy to occur but a real deep puddle can set the stage for water to be sucked into the air intake and pass through the filter into the intake and through the valves into the cylinders. This is why you see a Hummer with a snorkel - for wading through deep water.

Sounds like water got into the fuel system, try some fuel system cleaner in the gas tank, you may have to drain the gas out of the tank and refill with new gas
