President Obama offered a public prayer Thursday for two Americans held separately by North Korea and Iran, saying his administration will continue to fight for their release.

Mr. Obama said at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington that the U.S. “will do everything in our power” to gain the release of Kenneth Bae, a Christian missionary in prison in North Korea, and the Rev. Saeed Abedini of Boise, Idaho, who remains imprisoned in Iran

SNIP

The president prayed, “Let us never forget those who are persecuted today, among them Americans of faith. “

no...

he pretends for the cameras, for only that moment.

His actions reveal the lie, regarding his view of “Freedom of Religion”, and the Free Exercise clause.

That is not a prayer, unless he is praying to "us". It is a challege or an admonition, but not a prayer.

Yeah. I guess he’s praying that it won’t be long before those of us who don’t want to “fundamentally transform” our republic into a Marxist state will be behind barbed wire in this country.

Anybody know why large numbers of military helicopters are flying low over my southern city at 10-11 pm nearly every night?

Say what you will about Obama but the man can twist a knife like no other.

He knows we know he’s not going to do anything but he knows how to hurt the devout by mocking them.

I don’t believe him. He doesn’t say anything about having a pen or a phone (and this is the one time such accouterments are appropriate devices).

“The killing of the innocent is never fulling God’s will,” the president said.

But letting newborns from "botched" abortions die in medical waste bins or by being put in a closet until they die is ok, huh, ya' stupid ass?

What a filthy hypocrite!

"Obama prays for Americans held captive in North Korea and Iran"

And what about Saudi Arabia? No one EVER mentions the Americans being held captive in Saudia Arabia. Why?

Regarding such prayer by one who promotes abortion and a perversion of marriage, one who lies,breaks the law, etc.

When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; Even though you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood (Isaiah 1:15; see also 59:2-3).

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear (Isaiah 59:2).

Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him (John 9:31).

One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination (Proverbs 28:9).

We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him. (John 9:31)

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. (1 Peter 3:12)

I hope some Christians are praying too. The odds are much better when one prays to God.
