President Bush remined Americans to pray

President Bush reminds Americans of the importance of prayer

From Catholic News Service:
Washington DC, May 3 (CNA).- This morning at the White House, President Bush commemorated the National Day of Prayer. He called upon Americans to remember that their nation is one founded upon a tradition of prayer and that prayer has greater power than is often recognized.

The President began by noting that, "We're a prayerful nation. I believe that makes us a strong nation." Harking back to President George Washington, Bush recalled that, "It's the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and to humbly implore his protection and favor."
