  1. Dr Rosemary Eileen McHugh

    Thank you so much, Sally, for these wonderful photos of our President Obama at prayer with many different groups of people, of many different faiths, and all wanting to give God all the glory!

  2. I find these photographs of the presidents “moments of faith” to be disturbing. What kind of faith can a person have if he/she promotes abortion. We are all made in the image of God – and that includes the unborn child. A president should protect life, not weed it out. I am sorry, but I believe we have a president who relies on his ideology, not in God.

  3. Pray for President Obama, all leaders in America from the White House to your house . Ask God for wisdom for all who believe in Jesus Christ. Prayer is the answer and that includes you and I.
    Let it begin with us .

  4. Keep in mind that most of these photos show the president in a political context. Such are not to be construed as demonstrations of faith. Those demonstrations would come from candid photos taken of a person’s private moments. Even that would be difficult to achieve, however, because every photo would be subject to the question of whether it was taken “for show.”

    Only statements made by people privy to someone’s personal demonstrations of faith would be illustrative of that faith. For example: going out secretly to worship or perform acts associated with religious commitment.
