Some of our presidents prayed deep, sincere prayers while others just alluded to a faith in their speeches.
Many of our presidents worked for the good or our republic while others thought our country a democracy.
This book will enlighten you regarding our presidents as well as edifying your faith.
Thank you, Mr. Paul and Mr. Robison, for your joint venture in giving us this knowledge.

As a respected national leader and a man of deep faith himself, Senator Rand Paul has written Our Presidents and Their Prayers in collaboration with James Randall Robison to remind us all that in a country founded by religious people, that abiding and rock-solid belief in God has been the key to each and every President's strength. Senator Paul stands up to the doubters in this most timely and important affirmation of how faith and prayer have always guided us, and why they must continued to do so as we face major decisions for the future of our country.
One of the media's favorite questions to politicians is: "Do you believe America is a Christian nation?" Well, it is of course a historical fact that we were founded by a religious people, most of whom were Christians. But if one tries to expound on that point, even to acknowledge its historical significance, some immediately want to paint you as intolerant believer in theocracy. Our founders were not bashful in acknowledging God's grace in our history. Today's critics sometimes imply that you can't have both faith and freedom. Some think you must choose between faith or freedom, or put a different way - liberty or virtue. I believe that leaders guided by faith, leaders guided by virtue are essential.
Most of our presidents recognized this principle, especially President Washington. He recognized that freedom requires an undergirding of faith. Washington believed that democracy depended upon a virtuous people. His prayers and writings, and those of the other great Presidents in our history contained in these pages, reveal how integral our religious traditions were to our founding, and I believe, to our future as well. This book contains prayers from all 44 of our Presidents as well as Rand Paul's commentary and thoughts on their presidency and what he admired or how they implemented their faith in their leadership.
I received Our Presidents and Their Prayers by Rand Paul and James Randall Robison compliments of Center Street Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. I love that I have some of the most amazing prayers by some of the Presidents I admire all contained in the course of an amazing hard cover book. It seems that as the Presidents move to the current administration, the mention of God in their prayers was not as heartfelt but merely offered as a way of appeasing the God that anyone might worship regardless if it was the same as that of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln. In my opinion, those who love historical items like this one, will definitely want to keep a piece of our countries faith on their book shelf. I would rate this a 4 out of 5 stars.

What is the single most important common thread that unites all American Presidents such a small number of extraordinary people from different centuries, parties, backgrounds and experiences as they shoulder the overwhelming responsibilities of the office of President of the United States? There is only one possible answer: their faith.
As a respected national leader and a man of deep faith himself, Senator Rand Paul has written OUR PRESIDENTS & THEIR PRAYERS in collaboration with James Randall Robison to remind us all that in a country founded by religious people, that abiding and rock-solid belief in God has been the key to each and every presidents strength.
Senator Pauls inspiring look into the heart-felt sentiments and personal prayers of leaders past and present becomes a powerful testament to our incredible accomplishments: winning the Revolution, writing the Constitution, and leading the world as the most exceptional and longest-lasting democracy in history.
Its nothing short of a miracle, then and now.
Every man who has answered the peoples call to become President has looked for and found answers in his faith as he faced the nations problems, and each president has frequently described his reliance on the Creator in his public speeches, official proclamations and private prayers.
Join Senator Paul in applauding the important role faith has played in our country through over 225 years of triumphs and struggles, justice and injustice, accomplishments and setbacks, war and peace.
In OUR PRESIDENTS & THEIR PRAYERS, Senator Paul stands up to the doubters in this most timely and important affirmation of how faith and prayer have always guided us, and why they must continue to do so as we face major decisions for the future of our country.
We are currently experiencing the leadership of the forty-fourth President of The United States. Things may look a little shaky and we may worry that our country is changing, possibly not for the good, but we have to keep in mind that this country was born of religious people. According to Senator Paul, we fought to be free of the British King butwe kept our bedrock religious faith. Our founders were not bashful in acknowledging Gods grace in our history. Senator Paul takes a look at the faith lives of all our past presidents right up to our current leader. I think that this is a very interesting book that should provide a refresher on how The United States were founded.
