And Now, the Prayer Everyone Has Been Talking About...
Two points jumped out at me when I first heard Rick Warren's prayer. First, he was certain that Martin Luther King Jr. was shouting for joy in Heaven. I'm no expert on Dr. King, but based on what I've read about the man, that seems like a somewhat tenuous assumption.
Secondly, Warren closed his prayer "in the name of the one who changed my life." Isn't Jesus King of kings and Lord of all regardless of our own personal experiences?
What did you think of Rick Warren's inauguration prayer?
