( – Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked supporters at a rally in Iowa City, Iowa on Sunday to “pray every day until election day,” asking God to “awaken the body of Christ that we might pull back from the abyss.”

“The third and final thing I want to ask of each of you is that you pray,” Cruz said as he concluded his remarks. “That you commit today every day from now to election day to lift this country up in prayer."

“To spend even just one minute a day saying, ‘Father God, please, continue this awakening. Continue this spirit of revival. Awaken the body of Christ that we might pull back from the abyss,’” Cruz said.

“We are here today standing on the promises of second Chronicles 7:14,” Cruz said. “If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven and forgive their sins and I will heal their land.”

Cruz was introduced at the rally by radio and TV host Glenn Beck, who said that Cruz grew up with a copy of the Constitution and the Bible on the kitchen table.
