Prayer forgotten by Washington minutes after National Prayer Breakfast
Posted by Staff
USA Today reports:

President Obama told lawmakers Thursday he hopes the spiritual lessons of the National Prayer Breakfast carry over from the event -- something that hasn't really happened in years past, he confessed.

"You'd like to think that the shelf life wasn't so short," Obama joked.

After previous prayer breakfasts, he said, "I go back to the Oval Office and I start watching the cable news networks -- and it's like we didn't pray!"

Making his fifth straight appearance at the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, Obama told the bipartisan gathering that grappling with the nation's problems -- and with politicians of different parties -- requires a constant renewal of faith.

"Faith is not a possession," Obama said. "Faith is a process."
