ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of prayer to U.S. Presidents especially during decision making. President George W. Bush said that he prayed to God for advice regarding Iraq policy. Former President Abraham Lincoln also prayed accordingly during the Civil War. Another example of presidential spirituality occurred as a result of the Spanish-American War in 1898 wherein President William McKinley signed the Treaty of Paris. It also offers a brief background on the Christian life of Bush and its role in his presidency.
