SUGGESTIONS FOR THE PRESIDENT'S REMARKS AT THE PRESIDENTIAL PRAYER BREAKFAST, SPONSORED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP GROUP Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen: Few meetings, in this city that is famous for the variety and colorful character of its assemblies, attract as much attention as this annual meeting of the International Christian Leadership group. It has become a symbol of our belief in prayer and God's guidance of our nation, dedicated as it is to the religious ideals which constitute its greatest heritage. Members of the Congress are aware, as I am, of a special need for the strength that comes from a constant contact with the source of faith. We have been taught from childhood that prayer is primarily an individual matter. Yet, it possesses significant social aspects. Every man who prays carries in his petitions to God the needs and interests of his loved ones, his nation, and his fellow man. The development of a satisfying individual prayer life was given a Biblical blessing many centuries ago when it was said of Moses as he sought God in prayer that the Lord spoke to him "face to face as a man speaketh unto his friend." I have had during these last two years evidence that prayers are daily offered for me as the President and for the Congress and the Courts. This is borne out in a multitude of letters that come to me and in the personal assurances of God's ministers. For these I am deeply grateful.
