Obama - Prayer Service
WASHINGTON (AP) — Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Sikh clergy have prayed for President Barack Obama's second term in an inaugural service at Washington National Cathedral.
Obama and Vice President Joe Biden sat in the front pew Tuesday as prayers were said in English, Spanish, Arabic and Hebrew.
Kathryn Lohre, president of the National Council of Churches, asked God to "grant them wisdom to discern your will and to consider your Word among the counsel they receive."
The Rev. Adam Hamilton, senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kan., praised Obama's rhetorical skills — saying, "You should have been a preacher" — and urged the president to bring a divided nation together.
