President Barack Obama addressed the guests at the traditional 63rd Prayer Breakfast, when members of Congress and Evangelical Christians gather together to discuss the role of faith on the public life. In his last address as sitting president, Obama related faith as a tool for solving segregation question, but said that faith lead us in fight with many battles. One of them is overcoming the fear.
“Fear does many things. Fear can lead us to lash out against those who are different, or lead us to try to get some sinister under control. Alternatively, fear can lead us to succumb to despair, more paralysis or cynicism. Fear can feed our most selfish impulses and erode the bounds of community, for me and I know for so many of you. Faith is the great cure for fear,” Obama said not only before the domestic audience, but also to those international guests that attend the breakfast.
