Quick Overview:

The President's Devotional lets you start each day with the words that have inspired President Barack Obama, collected by Joshua DuBois, President Obama's "Pastor-in-Chief" (Time magazine)—his spiritual advisor who also served as the executive director of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Every day, DuBois provided President Obama with a morning devotional weaving together scripture, song, prayer, and reflections, motivated by the spirit of God and infused with joyful flair. The President’s Devotional contains the best of these devotionals, daily spiritual guidance that offer peace, comfort, and inspiration throughout the entire year.

In the heat of Barack Obama's first presidential campaign, staff member Joshua DuBois recognized the wear and tear on his boss and asked the senator if he could e-mail a devotional to him each day. When Obama responded positively, DuBois prepared a short e-mail for the future president to read first thing every morning, short snippets of scripture, inspirational stories, quotes, and prayers to provide counsel, encouragement, and inspiration, which the president himself has stated "meant the world" to him.

Through his years of working closely with the president, DuBois learned many life-changing lessons as well as gained an inside view on the faith and values of President Obama. DuBois now provides 365 of the best readings and prayers he sent the president; in addition, each month DuBois offers a longer meditation on the spiritual lessons he learned by accompanying the president as he faced many historic moments and challenges—two elections, meeting Billy Graham, the Sandy Hook shootings, and more. By spending time each day with The President's Devotional, we are reminded what is most important in life, that we are not alone in our efforts, and what our true mission is in the world.
