Obama, Biden attend post-inaugural prayer service

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION U.S. President Barack Obama and and Vice President Joe Biden joined clergy of different faiths at an interfaith service at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. Thousands of guests filled the cathedral for the traditional post-inaugural prayer service that included speakers from the Protestant, Catholic, Sikh, Muslim and Jewish faiths. Prayers were offered for the newly sworn-in president and vice president. "Strengthen the hearts of our President, Barack, and our Vice President, Joseph. Make them bold for the work you have set before them. Grant them wisdom to discern your will and to consider your word among the counsels they receive. Uphold them, that they may discharge their duties in the full light of divine grace. Keep this nation under your care," National Council of Churches President Kathryn Lohre said in her prayer. Obama was sworn in for his second term as president in two separate ceremonies on Sunday (January 20) and Monday (January 21).
