This Prayer Approved by the White House?

The Albert Mohler Radio Program

Is the Obama White House vetting prayers? Dan Gilgoff of U.S. News and World Report reports that this represents a “new tradition” established by the administration of President Barack Obama. As Gilgoff revealed, “In a departure from previous presidents, his public rallies are opening with invocations that have been commissioned and vetted by the White House.” On today’s program, Dr. Mohler warns that whether by self-censorship or censorship by the government, the integrity of prayer is subverted and prayer becomes an extension of government policy.
