I don't understand the controversy of Obama having a lay person give a
national prayer. Since when does it have to be a religious leader give a prayer?
Can't all of Gods children pray? Prayer should not be restricted.
Acts 10:34 clearly states the God is no respecter of persons, no partiality, no
favorites. Myrlie Evers-Williams, or Indra Neelameggham's prayers will
hold the same weight in God's eyes as prayers uttered by a priest, prophet,
or a pope!
