Ted Cruz, Who’s Trailing Three Other Christians in the GOP Primaries, Forms “National Prayer Team”

Sen. Ted Cruz, who announced his Presidential campaign at Liberty University, will now have a “national prayer team” at his disposal.

You have to admit: That’s a great euphemism for a collection of future Christian donors.

Mr. Cruz, who has aggressively courted the support of evangelicals, said the creation of the team would “establish a direct line of communication between our campaign and the thousands of Americans who are lifting us up before the Lord.”

Group members will receive emails containing prayer requests and a short devotional every week, the campaign said. They will also be invited to take part in a 20-minute “prayer conference call” each Tuesday.

And they will never ever be asked to give money to the campaign. Said nobody.

Cruz is currently in fourth place among the Republican hopefuls, and he’s losing to three people who believe in the same Christian God as him. Either all those prayers he’s been asking for up to this point haven’t helped or they’re getting redirected to the wrong people. Not sure how the National Prayer Team plans to correct that.

Obviously, the prayers won’t help him, but I can’t wait to hear the rationalization for why they failed when he inevitably drops out of the race.
