RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
I think Lincoln desperately wanted answers to a question that plagues us all -- why do bad things happen to good people in this world. He developed these questions in childhood and became acutely aware of things that needed to be changed and that a supreme being (if there was one) was not assisting. >>

Did Abraham Lincoln PRAY ?

Some folks here appear to conclude that Abraham Lincoln was not at all a Christian. This coming February 12 likely we'll see the newspapers instead claiming Lincoln was or had finally evolved into a follower of Christ. Modern Lincoln scholars seem to be mixed on the subject: Lincoln was an atheist, no Lincoln was a good Christian.
William Herndon hints that Abraham Lincoln made a public show of invoking the Maker or Providence, but in fact scoffed, and Lincoln remained a lifelong atheist.

But if Abraham Lincoln actually did pray, then to Whom was Lincoln praying if he was not praying to the Lord Jesus?
