Rafael Cruz closed out the weekly prayer call organized by Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign last week by asking God to bring about a spiritual and political revival that will mobilize millions of Christians to elect his son as the next president of the United States.
“Ted is no more than the instrument that You have lifted up to be a servant of Yours, Father,” the elder Cruz began, “and I pray, Lord God, that as such, for God to continue to guide his every step, Father. That everything he does, Father, is at the very center of Your word, that You give him revelation, Father, of what he needs to do. Father, that the peace that surpasses all understanding be upon him, upon Heidi, upon Caroline, upon Catherine, upon each and every one in his campaign and each and every one of the volunteers, Father. That we may know that in spite of all the attacks, Father, that we are in the center of Your will, Father and Lord God, righteousness will prevail.”
“So we commit this campaign to You, Father,” he continued, “we commit this next three or four months to You, Father, that righteousness will prevail, Father. That You’ll wake up that sleeping giant, Father. Lord God, we did it in 1980 when we mobilized millions of Christians, millions of Christians across America to help elect whom I consider the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln, president Ronald Reagan. Father, we needed it big in 1980, we can do it again, Father. I pray, Lord God, that You create an awakening, Father, a movement, a spiritual revival and political revival, Father, to restore America again to that shining city on a hill to Your glory, Father.”
