The need for a genuine faith that translates into action was the theme chosen by both President Obama and keynote speaker Eric Metaxas at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast in the nation’s capital.
The breakfast, which was held in the district’s Hilton Hotel on Feb. 2, attracted more than 3,000 guests.
“We can’t leave our values at the door,” President Obama said, highlighting the importance of having a faith that is lived out “not just with words, but with deeds.”
The president stated that the values of his Christian faith motivate the decisions he makes in office.
