    There is a need we all have in these days and times for some help which comes from outside ourselves as we face the multitude of problems... Once in a while it might be a good thing for us to turn back to history. Let us study a little bit of what happened at the founding of this Nation. It's not merely the events that led up to the Revolutionary War. All of the confused problems that we were then called upon to solve were as difficult as those we face now... So when we came down to the Declaration...

    President Trump spoke at Thursdays National Prayer Breakfast in a God-and-country infused speech that would appeal especially to people who appreciate Christian nationalism the belief that God has a uniquely Christian purpose for the United States. We can all be heroes to everybody and they can be heroes to us, Trump said, as long as we open our hearts to Gods grace, America will be free, the land of the free, the home of the brave and the light to all nations. The National Prayer Breakfast is a massive ecumenical gathering put on annually by a group of Christians...

    Worldnet Daily ^ | 25 January 2017
    His last speech at the annual gathering in the nations capital was called the most important speech given in modern American history. But the tone could not have been more different when Jonathan Cahn returned to the Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, held just before Donald J. Trump succeeded Barack Obama as commander in chief. The messianic rabbi, whom some have called Americas Prophet and the author of sensational bestsellers, including the new devotional The Book Of Mysteries, hailed the rise of Trump as an example of Gods will. Warning the audience his message would be true rather than politically correct, Cahn...

    Its hard to overstate the symbolic power of sitting down. Today, a football players refusal to stand for the National Anthem has garnered headline upon headline. Twenty-two years ago, a seated couple protested one of the worlds most beloved figures. In a truly iconic American scene that still captures the attentionand confusionof the Washington elite, then-President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary, sat in stunned silence amid a standing ovation that followed Mother Teresas address at the National Prayer Breakfast. The applause lasted a solid five minutes after Mother Teresas address. Long before the days of virtue-signaling, however, the Clintons...

    A group of military chaplains is calling for an about-face after a base in Kansas disinvited retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin from a prayer breakfast due to his religious beliefs. The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty sent a letter to Maj. Gen. Wayne Grisby, commander of the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, calling on him to reinstate Gen. Boykins invitation. The chaplain advocacy group said the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which demanded the general be disinvited due to his religious beliefs, has no right to dictate whom the base hosts. Maj. Gen. Grisby should reinstate the invitation to...

    A Kansas military base abruptly canceled an upcoming prayer breakfast that featured retired Lt. General Jerry Boykin after complaints were lodged that Boykin is anti-Muslim and anti-gay. Military Religious Freedom Foundation founder Mikey Weinstein told Army Times that Boykins invitation had caused great angst among soldiers at Fort Riley leading some to break down in tears. I have clients of ours weeping on the phone about this, he said. Weeping? Oh, please. I sincerely doubt that America can expect to win wars if the people who are tasked to do so are frightened by an old retired general with...

    President Barack Obama relayed two stories during the National Prayer Breakfast which compared Chicago residents to Nazis. The president spoke about a story he learned of at a ceremony at the Israeli Embassy where he gave remarks honoring individuals who rescued Jews during the Holocaust. The president later compared that story to Chicago Muslim father and his children praying one day after the San Bernardino shooting: A week ago, I spoke at a ceremony held at the Israeli Embassy for the first time, honoring the courage of people who saved Jews during the Holocaust. And one of the recipients was...

    Congressmen, President Barack Obama and faith leaders from around the country met for the annual prayer breakfast in Washington, D.C. Thursday. At the breakfast, House Minority Leader Democrat Nancy Pelosi took the opportunity to invoke "the prophet Muhammad." Before reading from the Gospel of John, Pelosi talked about the similarity of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. "In the Gospel of John we see the golden rule that stands at the heart of the gospel, and as we hear these words from John 13, 15, and 17, we know that this message, this command of love is not confined to the New...

    Is there some kind of symbolism we're missing about Obama going first to the Islamic Society of Baltimore Mosque yesterday, then today to the National Prayer Breakfast? There are two names that no one will ever hear from the lips of President Barack Obama. The name of Jesus Christ is one, Islamic terrorism the other. Yet, the same man who demanded that Georgetown cover all symbols of Christ—including his Blessed Name, the tiny IHS that would have appeared directly over his head on the podium where he would be giving a speech—got to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast in...

    Thursday at the National Prayer Meeting, President Barack Obama said he visited a mosque in Baltimore yesterday “to let” Muslim-American know “they are Americans.” Obama said, “Just yesterday, some of you may be aware I visited a mosque in Baltimore to let our Muslim-American brothers and sisters know that they, too, are Americans and welcomed them.”

    President Barack Obama spoke about the nature of fear and Christ's power over death before a large annual faith-based gathering in Washington, DC. At the National Prayer Breakfast held Thursday morning in the Nation's Capital, President Obama gave a speech based off of 2nd Timothy 1:7, which reads "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." "Fear does funny things. Fear can lead us to lash out against those who are different or lead us to try to get some 'sinister other' under control," said Obama. "Alternatively,...

    The good news: After a number of atrocities that have victimized Christians from Syria, Iraq, Egypt, and Kenya over the past few months, Barack Obama finally has spoken explicitly about Christians. The bad news? At the Easter prayer breakfast, Obama chose not to pray for all of those victims of genocidal Islamist terror, but to scold Christians in the US for what Obama calls less-than-loving expressions[.] He then reversed course, to much laughter:

    Charisma News ^ | 4/9/2015 | MATTHEW CLARK
    President Obama, who won't call out radical Islam for beheading Christians, is spewing verbal vitriol against Christians. President Obama began his remarks at an Easter Prayer Breakfast this week saying he is "concerned" about "less-than-loving" Christians. He used the day we as Christians celebrate our risen Saviorthe day love conquered deathto call Christians unloving. Christians around the world are suffering and dying each and every day at the hands of brutal radical Islamic jihadi genocide, and the leader of the free world finds the need to attack Christians. But this wasn't the first time. Just a few short months ago...

    Its always uncomfortable when this supremely arrogant, narcissistic, dishonest President speaks at a prayer breakfast. He just cant resist the opportunity to lecture the people he relentlessly, remorselessly lied to about gay marriage for years. Hes demonstrated his utter contempt for people of faith through his politics there is no other word for willfully deceiving people in order to gain the political power necessary to crush them. Obama has never acknowledged or apologized for his deceit, which would have been a very minimal gesture of respect for those he hoodwinked. He cant help letting that contempt seep into his...

    As the Washington Times points out, the latest Obama signal of religious relativism came after his administration had issued a statement on the Kenyan massacre at a Christian college without once mentioning the religion of the victims - or the attackers. Addressing an ecumenical gathering at the White House of cardinals, ministers, pastors and the lay faithful, Mr. Obama was talking about the Apostle John’s call to love “with actions and in truth” rather than with words. The president then briefly gave in to temptation, and deviated from his prepared remarks. “On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as...

    President Obama appeared set to go after his political opponents on Tuesday during an Easter Prayer Breakfast, but he stopped himself before veering further off script. On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that, as a Christian, I am supposed to love, the president said during the breakfast at the White House. And I have to say that, sometimes when I listen to other less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.
