Rev.Adam Hamilton, Oral Roberts University graduate will be leading the National Prayer Service as a part of the White House presidential inauguration.

Hamilton graduated ORU in 1985 and later founded the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kan.

According to his blog, Hamilton will preach the National Prayer Service Tuesday morning following the inauguration.

"I'm honored to have been asked to deliver the message for this service of worship," Hamilton said in the blog post, "And, to be honest, I'm a bit nervous as well."

Hamilton writes, "My sermon on Tuesday morning will be focused on the leader of the Bible's great emancipation story (in the light of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation) and is one I hope will inspire, encourage and challenge all who hear it."

The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. will live-stream the event Tuesday on its Web site.
