I watched the news, today, and noticed that you decided not to have a public time of prayer at the White House during today’s National Day of Prayer.
I’m disappointed, Mr. President, and, frankly, a little surprised.
I was there last February in Brownsville, Texas, where you told a group of clergy how much Jesus Christ and prayer means to you. You seemed sincere when describing that moment when you “accepted Christ as your Savior” and resolved to live for Him.
Now that you are President of the United States, I was sure that you would take seriously a National Day of Prayer by continuing with your predecessor’s tradition of inviting spiritual leaders to the White House for prayer. I was sure that you wouldn’t feed into the stereotype of democrats as insensitive to Christians and especially, evangelical Christians.
Boy, was I wrong.
Please know that I still pray for you and your family every day, but today, I’m disappointed.
