Obama: Easter Story Helps Him In Troubled Times [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama says the Easter story of Christ’s agony and resurrection has helped him get through the tough moments of an embattled presidency.

The president got “Amens” from religious leaders at a White House prayer breakfast in the East Room as he recounted Jesus saying, “In this world, you will have trouble.”

Obama says he’s among those who sometimes question God’s plan for him. But he says that’s precisely when he recalls the “triumph” of the Easter story, and Jesus overcoming his doubts and fears before the crucifixion.

This is the third year Obama has convened a pre-Easter breakfast meeting. Obama says he hoped for “a little calm before the storm” on Monday when the White House opens its gates to thousands of children for the Easter Egg Roll.
