Barack Obama’s Remarks at National Prayer Breakfast

POLITICO provides a transcript of President Obama’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. Obama discussed the importance of being sworn in over the Bibles of Dr. Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln during January’s inauguration. He concluded the speech with a call to harmony through religion and faith: “And most of all, I know that all Americans — men and women of different faiths and, yes, those of no faith that they can name — are, nevertheless, joined together in common purpose, believing in something that is bigger than ourselves, and the ideals that lie at the heart of our nation’s founding — that as a people we are bound together.”
