Obama Gets Daily Prayers on His BlackBerry

Ad Feedback

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says he gets a prayer every morning on his BlackBerry.

Obama told reporters from religious news organizations on Thursday that White House faith director Joshua DuBois sends him a morning devotional every day to his e-mail device. He says it's a "wonderful practice" that started during the campaign.

Tech-savvy Obama is the first president to use e-mail while in office and is seldom seen without his BlackBerry. Only a handful of aides and personal friends have the e-mail address for the handheld device.

Aides tried to take away Obama's BlackBerry after he won the White House, noting that the e-mails are someday going to be made public. Obama resisted and instead got a security upgrade.
