Inside President Obama's Biblical Messages


Are you curious about some of the biblically based advice President Obama has been receiving during his presidency?

Well, his former faith advisor is giving all of us an up close and personal look at the devotions he sent President Obama everyday for years.

Joshua Dubois has a new book out called, The President's Devotional: The Daily Readings that Inspired President Obama

Dubois explains it this way:

"The President's Devotional contains 365 of the morning devotionals I send President Obama, which the President says "meant the world" to him. Each message will help you start your day with peace and joy, growing closer to God and closer to your neighbors as well. The President's Devotional also has 12 stories of faith in the White House from my time as director of the White House faith-based initiative, from Billy Graham to marriage, religious liberty to Newtown, and more."

You may not agree with President Obama on much of anything but Jesus commands us to pray for our leaders.

Is President Obama in your prayers? Jesus doesn't just love Republicans or conservatives. He loves all of us.

I'm looking forward to reading Joshua's book. I've gotten to know him over the years. He's a good man.

Yes, we are praying for the President. Is he really reading these devotionals? You don't ever see pastors visiting him only seeing the people supporting Islam having dinner with the president.

Amen David Brody! We need to keep the President in our prayers everyday. And if any of us does not have genuine love and concern for him in our heart, then we need to repent first and ask God to give us love for him so that our prayers will be effective. If we regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear our prayers. Psalms 66:18 Anger and hatred definitely falls under the category of iniquity.

AS MY HUSBAND SAYS, OBAMA WAS BROUGHT UP UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF COMMUNISM & AS AN MUSLIM & HE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF WHO JESUS CHRIST IS. THIS IS WHY WE MUST PRAY FOR HIM THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL REVEAL TO HIM WHO JESUS REALLY IS.

I am doubtful pres. Obama reads the devotionals. he won't even show up for the morning briefings. I have prayed for him, when a person has sat under jeremiah wright for over 25 years and ingrained with those teachings of hate as the quran teaches also, it will only be God who can change his thinking.

Is Obama a Christian, truly born again as a young man? What about the 2008 flap over Rev. Jeremiah Wright?

You decide. You'll find two nonpartisan articles about this on about.com. The first, at

http://christianity.about.com/od/religionpolitics/p/obamafaithss.htm

is titled "President Barack Obama", dated 01/30/2012, and written by Mary Fairchild, About.com Christianity Guide.

The second, at

http://atheism.about.com/od/barackobamareligionfaith/a/ObamaReligion.htm

is titled "Barack Obama's Religious Beliefs & Background: What Does Barack Obama Believe? / Barack Obama has a More Religiously Diverse & Secular Background than Most", undated, and written by Austin Cline, About.com Agnosticism / Atheism Guide.

These encyclopedic articles are written by in-house experts at about.com; this onetime portal is virtually unassailable.

Thank you, Mr. Brody for this post. How can anyone judge or say that Obama probably doesn't read the devotionals? Do you know his heart? Was every born again Christian born and raised in a Christian home? I was so excited when Obama was elected..not because I agree with all he stands for (I am a moderate) but it was historical. Unfortunately, for whatever reasons (and I believe there are many) his presidency has not been what most have hoped.
