A prayerful, private president

One’s spirituality is unique and private. From the public’s vantage, President Obama maintains an extremely private and protected expression of his faith life.

However, according to Obama’s advisors, our president begins his morning by reading a devotional written just for him. The texts include scripture and literature.

While our country was founded on the separation of church and state, the state of our country often demands leaders seek wisdom beyond themselves. Said Obama last year: “This office tends to make a person pray more.”

Seems like a better avenue than the one some other elected leaders may have recently followed.
