The Obama administration says now it does not oppose including President Franklin Roosevelt's D-Day prayer on a World War II Memorial.

The news comes one day after the administration expressed it's opposition to Ohio Sen. Rob Portman's bill to update the monument with the prayer.

Officials had raised concerns that putting the prayer on the memorial would invite a lawsuit.

But on Friday, the National Parks Service said if Congress votes to add the prayer, it will find a place for it.

An NPS spokesman said the agency "appreciates the importance of faith in the lives of Americans."
