Religion: A call to retain humility as a nation

Did you hear President Barack Obama’s closing remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C., this morning?

They’re worth repeating:

“And so this morning, let us summon the common resolve that comes from our faith. Let us pray to God that we may be worthy of the many blessings He has bestowed upon our nation. Let us retain that humility not just during this hour but every hour.

“And let me suggest that those of us with the most power and influence need to be the most humble. And let us promise Him and to each other, every day as the sun rises over America that it will rise over a people who are striving to make this a more perfect union.”

Did you hear that?
