In Obama's first term, an evolving Christian faith and a more evangelical style

Washington (CNN) - President Obama's prayers for a strong first debate may not have been answered, but that doesn't mean the prayers weren't happening.

Before he stepped onto a Colorado stage earlier this month to face off with Mitt Romney for the first time, Obama joined a conference call with a small circle of Christian ministers.

    The World always joins in prayer for President Obama every day and the Almighty answers our prayers because our prayers aren't selfish, we also pray for our country to rid it of evil and hate.

  4. Really?

    Really? CCN has been critizing Romney for changing his positon as he gets closer to the election......The President can't be considered doing anything any different with position! In fact "pro-abortion" & "Same-Sex Marriages" can't be any further from being a "Christian – Biblical Standards" that I can imagine!!!!!!

    Mormonism is a cult. We do NOT have two Christians running. We have a Christian and a Cultist.

    Please,be very careful when compelled to introduce christianity,belief,religion, into politics.A lying candidate claiming to
    to be a christian has no right to become the"Commander in Chief".Yet it probably will happen. Why? This candidate is being overwhelmed with millions in money for the benefit of his "cause". This candidate operates under the mantel of a congress bent to see to it that the present potus must have only one term.Perhaps this is called: Demoncracy In Action.....

    Ya gotta just love those born again Christians, especially when it's during the race of your life.
    Sorry, I don't buy it CNN. When someone is professing redistribution of wealth, race hatred and class warfare, he doesn't look like a Christian nor does he sound like one.

    Oh, please, leave God out of this!!! We really already heard enough from the GOP on that for HIM to throw up with all the lying and misrepresenting going on there! I am sure; God sees how his little lams misrepresent HIM but HE might have a word with them later... In the meantime HE lets the sun shine on good and bad. (Sandy has nothing to do with it – that is global warming:-)!)
    God gave us a brain and character (granted some more, some less) to handle life, our conscience, and also this election. However, if you want him to smile, vote strait "D"
