RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
I addressed this point in my post #18, and my answer is - (if then) he prayed to God. I cannot recall A. L. ever referring to Jesus. Probably, like Gene once said, I am influenced by own personal religious beliefs that I want Lincoln to have too - or perhaps it's not a matter of wanting but of having difficulties to imagine other. I have difficulties him praying to Jesus (like I have myself to do although I'm a Christ on the paper and by communion), but I can well imagine him praying to God (maybe not the usual way, "technically" though. However - if G. Greene's account is reliable - the 23rd Psalm could be seen as a prayer, couldn't it?)
Here are some of his references:
