Obama Attends Prayer Service

I just got to a computer long after the prayer service President Obama attended this morning at the National Cathedral.

I plan to update the blog more tonight with more details and interviews while I miss the premiere of LOST. Please note my devotion.

To hold you over until then, Time magazine has a transcript of Sharon Watkins' address. And Ted Olsen provides a roundup of inaugural reactions here.

Below are the tweets I texted from my phone to Twitter during the service:

President Obama has arrived and the mood is very sober at the National Cathedral.

President Obama and all just sang "he's got the whole world in his hands"

Watkins tells Obama "tag. you're it."

Watkins preaches about loving your neighbor. wintley phipps is singing amazing grace.

Jim Wallis prays for congress...to care for our natural resources. other religious leaders pray as well.
