“The president had a private prayer and conversation with Rev. Graham,” said White House spokesman Bill Burton. “He is extraordinarily gratified that he took the time to meet with him.”
White House spiritual adviser Josh DuBois also attended the session in Graham’s mountaintop cabin in Montreat, N.C.
“Rev. Graham has obviously been an important spiritual leader for past presidents and for the American people for decades,” Burton said. “He’s a real treasure for our country. The president appreciates the opportunity to visit him at his home.”
And Obama makes 12.
