Obama Gets Prayers Emailed Daily To His Blackberry

Posted: Updated:

President Obama is a notorious--and self-proclaimed--Blackberry lover.

"I'm still clinging to my Blackberry," Obama told reporters just a few weeks before his inauguration, when rumors surfaced he might have to give up the device for security reasons. "They're going to pry it out of my hands," Obama warned.

Official correspondence aside, what does Obama read on the presidential "Crackberry?"

According to The Hill, Obama's daily diet includes a 'prayer devotional' that he gets delivered to his Blackberry:

Obama is the first president to carry one of the mobile devices, and said that he uses it to read prayers sent to him by several pastors from around the country who prayed with him during the 2008 campaign.

The morning devotional is sent each morning via email by White House faith director Joshua DuBois, the Associated Press reports. Obama said he called the daily prayer a "wonderful practice," adding that it had started during his presidential campaign.
