Asheville, North Carolina (CNN) -- President Obama prayed Sunday with the Rev. Billy Graham at Graham's mountaintop home before leaving North Carolina to attend the memorial service for 29 West Virginia coal miners killed in a recent explosion.

Obama became the first sitting U.S. president to visit Graham at his family home, according to Graham spokesman Larry Ross. He is the 12th president, dating back to Harry Truman, to meet with the so-called "pastor to the presidents."

Thanks John..I enjoyed that article..I have a lot of respect for Mr Graham..

I am so glad the article also mentioned that it was a Supreme Court ruling about the National Day of Prayer and NOT President Obama's denouncement of the occasion on May 6th .

No one is forced to pray or participate in the public/private prayers, because we are free in this country to practice any or no religion..

I will pray for this nation, its leaders and for peace and prosperity for all..and I will thank my creator that we are free in this country to seek and practice any religion without condemnation..
