Does a prayer count if you purposely drop "God" out of a prayer? Yesterday during President Obama's unofficial inauguration ceremony, God was skipped over during a prayer given at the event.
Considering it was Democrats who dropped God from their platform and then booed loudly during the DNC convention when it was put back in, this isn't surprising however, we're in a world of trouble if you can't even say "God" during a prayer to none other than God.
UPDATE: From POLITICO:
While Evers-Williams didn’t say “under God,” her speech had multiple references to God, the “almighty” and to Jesus Christ.
“In Jesus’ name and in the name of all who are holy and right, we pray,” Evers-Williams said at the prayer’s conclusion.
