THE PRESIDENT:* Good morning, everybody.* (Applause.)* Please, have a seat.* Have a seat.* Well, welcome to the White House.* It is a pleasure to be with all of you this morning.

In less than a week, this house will be overrun by thousands of kids at the Easter Egg Roll.* (Laughter.)* So I wanted to get together with you for a little prayer and reflection -- some calm before the storm.* (Laughter.)

It is wonderful to see so many good friends here today.* To all the faith leaders from all across the country -- from churches and congregations large and small; from different denominations and different backgrounds -- thank you for coming to our third annual Easter prayer breakfast.* And Im grateful that youre here.

Im even more grateful for the work that you do every day of the year -- the compassion and the kindness that so many of you express through your various ministries.* I know that some of you have joined with our Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.* Ive seen firsthand some of the outstanding work that you are doing in your respective communities, and its an incredible expression of your faith.* And I know that all of us who have an opportunity to work with you draw inspiration from the work that you do.
*
Finally, I want to just express appreciation for your prayers.* Every time I travel around the country, somebody is going around saying, were praying for you.* (Laughter.)* We got a prayer circle going.* Dont worry, keep the faith.* Were praying.* (Laughter.)* Michelle gets the same stuff.* And that means a lot to us.* It especially means a lot to us when we hear from folks who we know probably didnt vote for me -- (laughter) -- and yet, expressing extraordinary sincerity about their prayers.* And its a reminder not only of what binds us together as a nation, but also what binds us together as children of God.

Now, I have to be careful, I am not going to stand up here and give a sermon.* Its always a bad idea to give a sermon in front of professionals.* (Laughter.)* But in a few short days, all of us will experience the wonder of Easter morning.** And we will know, in the words of the Apostle Paul, Christ Jesus...and Him crucified.

Its an opportunity for us to reflect on the triumph of the resurrection, and to give thanks for the all-important gift of grace.* And for me, and Im sure for some of you, its also a chance to remember the tremendous sacrifice that led up to that day, and all that Christ endured -- not just as a Son of God, but as a human being.*

For like us, Jesus knew doubt.* Like us, Jesus knew fear.* In the garden of Gethsemane, with attackers closing in around him, Jesus told His disciples, My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.* He fell to his knees, pleading with His Father, saying, If it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.* And yet, in the end, He confronted His fear with words of humble surrender, saying, If it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.

So it is only because Jesus conquered His own anguish, conquered His fear, that were able to celebrate the resurrection.* Its only because He endured unimaginable pain that wracked His body and bore the sins of the world that He burdened -- that burdened His soul that we are able to proclaim, He is Risen!*

So the struggle to fathom that unfathomable sacrifice makes Easter all the more meaningful to all of us.* It helps us to provide an eternal perspective to whatever temporal challenges we face.* It puts in perspective our small problems relative to the big problems He was dealing with.* And it gives us courage and it gives us hope.*

We all have experiences that shake our faith.* There are times where we have questions for Gods plan relative to us -- (laughter) -- but thats precisely when we should remember Christs own doubts and eventually his own triumph.* Jesus told us as much in the book of John, when He said, In this world you will have trouble.* I heard an amen.* (Laughter.)* Let me repeat.* In this world, you will have trouble.

AUDIENCE:* Amen!

THE PRESIDENT:* But take heart!* (Laughter.)* I have overcome the world.* (Applause.)* We are here today to celebrate that glorious overcoming, the sacrifice of a risen savior who died so that we might live.* And I hope that our time together this morning will strengthen us individually, as believers, and as a nation.
*
And with that, Id like to invite my good friend, Dr. Cynthia Hale, to deliver our opening prayer.* Dr. Hale.* (Applause.)

Remarks by the President at Easter Prayer Breakfast | The White House


Yep...sounds like a Muslim to me!

Oh, wait! He's lying...in spite of the fact that a REAL Muslim would be subject to death for saying that....right?

If Obama had any real guts he wouldn't have an Easter celebration at the White House to begin with. Waste of time IMO.

But alas...he's gonna play the role like the rest of them do.

Hopefully Obama's last Easter address as he should be sent out of the White House for 2013.

The OP states this was his 3rd, so which year did he miss?

The man may not be a Muslim but he has told so many lies since 2007 that I wonder why anybody would accept any of what he said here. Of course, teleprompters were in working condition that day, I bet.

You accept what Bush said all the time, you accept what Rush, Beck and all the other right-wing clowns say as the truth. But you can never accept what the President says as the truth?

Stop...just stop. What makes you think that if someone doesn't like Obama they automatically liked junior? If anything I'd say Obama is more like junior 2.0 then anything else.

Because he often acts contrary to his words when speaking on the Bible. No one is perfect, and no one is 100% compliant - but you don't go full bore on partial birth abortion.

He skipped out on the National Day of Prayer last year - he will probably take part this year out of political expediency.

Obama just says the words.. if he really followed Jesus he would follow the ten commandments and not lie to the masses.

Also Obama would not push his secular agenda on the Catholic Church.

Satan also repeated words from the Bible.

What else would we expect the anti-Christ to say on Easter?
