Samples, KR. 2002.  Facts for Faith (8):52-58. CELD ID 5880

During the days following the catastrophic terrorist events of September 11, 2001, President George w. Bush called for a national day of prayer. He urged people of all faiths to pray for America. Interfaith religious services were televised from the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. and from Yankee Stadium in New York. These services included clerics form judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. The offered prayers to the God collectively addressed as "the God of Abraham, the God of Muhammad, and Father of Jesus Christ." Popular television personality Oprah Winfrey led the service held in New York City and boldly declared that all people pray to the same God.
