President Obama does not shrug off his walk in Faith. He adheres to it. He speaks of it and lives it.  The photo at the above shows a man of tender love and faith who is steeped in tradition.

President Obama has always said that he was rooted in prayers. Take a look below at just  a few of his powerful quotes of prayer.

So, I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived.

First and foremost, my Christian faith gives me a perspective and security that I don’t think I would have otherwise: that I am loved. That, at the end of the day, God is in control

Faith has always provided a moral framework and vocabulary for this country to come to terms with its most pressing challenges. One of the great things about this nation is that it is a place where people from all walks of life can advocate on behalf of their faith and beliefs and be open about what drives and motivates them,

“I have a job to do as president, and that does not involve convincing folks that my faith in Jesus is legitimate and real. I do my best to live out my faith, and to stay in the Word, and to make my life look more like His.
 
“Lord give me the strength to meet the challenges of my office…” to “Lord, give me patience as I watch  Malia go to her first dance where there will be boys. Lord, let that skirt become longer as she travels to that dance.”
 
My prayer this morning is that we might see the face of God each and every day, as we go through the hustle and bustle of our lives, that we rise above the here and now and kneel before the eternal. Remember that ‘those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.’

President Obama quotes Isaiah 40:31 and Psalm 46  as his favorite.
