WASHINGTON — U.S. Reps. Dan Boren and James Lankford wouldn’t encourage their colleagues in Congress to vote for President Barack Obama — or even some of his policies.

But they do believe their fellow House members should pray for the president, and they’ve given them some help. The two Oklahomans, along with Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, distributed more than 430 copies of a book called “Obama Prayer: A Book of Prayers for the 44th President.”

In a letter to their colleagues, the lawmakers said they were trying to encourage “specific and thoughtful prayer” for Obama.

The book was written by Chuck Garriott, who spent 20 years in Oklahoma City as the senior pastor of Heritage Presbyterian Church in America and now lives in Washington, where he is the director of the PCA’s Ministry to State and holds prayer sessions and Bible studies with leaders from around the country and the world.
