Final Call For Prayer: Election Day

Many Americans will be headed to some form of worship service in this final weekend before the election. In the United States, the freedom to worship is a fundamental right, enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution. Obviously not all of us agree on who should win on Tuesday. But, as we head to church, synagogue, temple or mosque, and as we reflect on the historical importance of what’s happening in our country next week, we here at MittRomneyCentral invite you to make the outcome of the election the subject of prayer and, if it’s part of your religious tradition, fasting.

With Article VI blog and Evangelicals for Mitt, we’ve asked before for your prayerful support of Governor and Mrs. Romney. Those past calls for prayer were made on behalf of Evangelicals, Jews, Mormons, Muslims, Presbyterians and members of many other religions. Today the call for prayer comes from a friend of MittRomneyCentral who is a devout Catholic, Art Grant (who, notably, has a member of his faith on both major tickets).

Our past calls for prayer were on the eve of the convention and the debates. At those times we took pains to make clear we were not praying for a victory, but that Mitt and Ann be favored as they carried incredible burdens. We called for prayers that they be able to communicate effectively and with extraordinary capacity. We called for prayers that the American people would be open to their message and have clear minds to make an informed decision when election day came. We believe those prayers were answered. Ann shone in her convention speech and Mitt’s debate performances were spectacular. Days of obfuscation on the part of Mitt’s opponents followed, but in those moments, Americans saw who Mitt Romney is, and what Mitt and Ann Romney stand for.

Today Art goes beyond what we’ve asked before and asks that we pray that Mitt win. With election day upon us, the time for the American people to decide is now, and we join with him. The authors of this website believe it is appropriate to work toward, and even pray for, causes we feel are worthy. Not all agree. While we will strenuously defend the rights of all people, even those who disagree with us, to do vote their conscience and solicit the help of the deity they choose, we obviously believe it would be best for Mitt to emerge victor on Tuesday, and that the country will be better off under his leadership, and so we claim this privilege for ourselves as well. If you don’t agree, everyone can join us in praying that Americans making up their minds will be influenced by the truth of the arguments made and not be swayed by falsehoods; that voters will be inspired; that voters will feel the weight of their responsibility and seek to understand the issues at stake; and that people will understand both major candidates, what they stand for, and where they would lead this country. And if you agree with us Mitt Romney is the right choice, we invite you to exercise your First Amendment rights and fast and pray for him, that God attend his and our efforts, and that, in the best interest of the country, he be elected as the 45th President of the United States this coming Tuesday.

From Art Grant:

If ever there was a time for prayer it is now. No matter your faith, the future of this great nation is at stake and it is time to take a collective moment, close our eyes, get down on our knees, and pray to God that Governor Romney wins this election on Tuesday. This is a call to every citizen who has even a glimmer of understanding of what this unprecedented, unique idea of a country called America is all about, who understands the founding principles that have guided us to this point in our history. For in our own Pledge of Allegiance we proclaim:

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

A belief in God has been a part of this country since the beginning, and people from all walks of life, all nations, and all faiths have proven through our relatively short history that if you have faith, work hard, and lead an honest life, you will have the opportunity to be a success in America. Governor Romney not only understands this, he has lived it himself! It is this OPPORTUNITY that is the most unique and precious thing about living in this country, and must be preserved. We succeed as a nation because we can succeed as individuals, as families, as communities, cities, and states. And so we pray, as one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, that Governor Romney can prevail on Tuesday.

The Prayer of Faith — IN GOD WE TRUST

Dan Olsen is a good friend of many years whom I know to be a man of God, and a faithful husband and father. I am grateful to him for this invitation (please also see Billy Graham’s request for prayer).

By Dan Olsen

Does anyone doubt that a political campaign is a battle? Obviously, the foreign policy debate this evening in Boca Raton, Florida will be yet another crucial encounter in the battle for the Presidency. Governor Romney and the President are not fighting for their lives, as four brave Americans recently did in Lybia, but they will be fighting for the hearts and minds of America’s citizens – and the outcome of that battle will have a major impact on all our lives.

Our next Commander in Chief will need to continue the fight against those who would destroy America. He will be responsible for protecting us from enemies foreign and domestic. He will be responsible for those who risk their lives for our liberty. I am confident that Governor Romney is the best man for that job.

On this day of the final great presidential debate, an appeal to a higher power seems essential. Prayer seems essential. Challenges such as America has, and as our next President will have, require trust in ourselves and trust in God. Whatever our faith, an appeal to God for His blessing can only help.

With this in mind, I renew Paul Johnson’s invitation from the second Presidential debate, that “we ask that God extend his grace for the protection and safety of our troops, to strengthen Governor Romney, that he will benefit fully from his preparation, that he will have clarity of mind, that he will recall the facts needed to make his case, that he will clearly make his arguments and rebut unfair criticism, that his audience will understand, and that those hearing Governor Romney will listen with an open mind and be willing to hear.”

Debate Night: Again, A Time For Prayer


When Mitt and Ann Romney were preparing to deliver their addresses to the GOP convention, the authors of mittromneycentral.com, EvangelicalsForMitt and Article 6 Blog, joined together in an unusual joint post to invite our readers to pray on their behalf.

We know many persons of faith united in prayer behind Mitt before the last debate. It’s easy to look back at how well Mitt and Ann did on both occasions and chalk it up to coincidence or listlessness of Mitt’s opponent. We do not. We believe prayer played a key role in how well each performed.

So now, before a debate that will affect the course of our country for years to come, we feel it appropriate to ask again.

Again, it is a time for prayer.

Please join us.

Again we do not ask this lightly. Politics is a personal matter, and many on both sides of the issues feel they’re in the right. But we believe prayer and faith have a role in public life, regardless of one’s stance on the issues, and invite those of all persuasions to do likewise. We believe “In God We Trust” should be as true today as the day it was first adopted as our national motto. And as each president that has spoken the words “God bless America,” including President Obama, has invoked the blessings of God on our country, we believe it’s appropriate for everyone to now do the same.

In the words of one of our readers:

The debate is just a few hours away and we will hope and pray for Gov. Romney to do well. Massive prayer and fasting (if you can) is needed again for this debate, just as it was for the previous one. Never underestimate the power of God. He will open hearts and minds of those that are searching for the truth, and confuse and confound the words of the opponent. Humble yourselves, even if you don’t pray, now’s the time to learn, so we can do our part in helping Mitt present his message, knowing we are all behind him in thought and mind.

Just as we made this request at the time of the Republican convention, we don’t ask for a miracle in the form some would expect we might. While many of us will be privately praying the election goes the way we would like, today we ask that God extend his grace for the protection and safety of our troops, to strengthen Governor Romney, that he will benefit fully from his preparation, that he will have clarity of mind, that he will recall the facts needed to make his case, that he will clearly make his arguments and rebut unfair criticism, that his audience will understand, and that those hearing Governor Romney will listen with an open mind and be willing to hear. We ask that there be a full debate of the issues, so that the American people will be armed with the knowledge necessary to make their decision.

Please join us.

David and Nancy French: A Call to Greater Action

Nancy & David French, founders of Evangelicals for Mitt (co-founder: Charles Mitchell) — Standing with the Tennessee delegation at the 2012 Republican National Convention

Of all content I have posted since writing about Mitt Romney from 2007, I consider this piece written by David and Nancy French to be the most important, by far.

David and Nancy are great American patriots by any definition of that word and they are true friends of Mitt and Ann Romney. This opinion of theirs is directed to members of Governor Romney’s church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but could easily apply to any person of faith.

As you read Nancy’s and David’s call to greater action, please take the time to explore the hyperlinks they included. These are powerful resources in and of themselves.

Whatever you do, you have to watch the video of Chuck Norris and his wife — incredible! Please help MRC publicize this message far and wide. (David’s and Nancy’s bios are included at the end)

Update 1: John Schroeder, an MRC friend and writer for Article VI Blog wrote an awesome piece today that dovetails Nancy’s and David’s call to action. Click here: “Now Is No Time To Be Shy”

Update 2: Hugh Hewitt linked to this post and titled it, “What Will Mormons Do?” — Will Mormons go all in for Romney/Ryan?


By David and Nancy French

Dear Mormon Friends, It’s Time to Go “All-In” for Mitt

Nancy and I started Evangelicals for Mitt in 2006 with one simple idea: To enlist the mighty machinery of evangelical activism behind the single best candidate for President of the United States, Mitt Romney. Even then we could see the need for a man of Mitt’s unique talents and now – with labor participation the lowest in 30 years and with the most sluggish recovery since the Great Depression – the need is even greater.

We were more idealistic back in those days. Convinced of Mitt’s merits, we saw our task as relatively easy. Introduce Mitt to evangelicals, deal with the relatively easy questions about theology and politics, and then watch him win social conservatives on his way to the White House. Of course politics is never easy, and there are always competitors for the same set of voters. First Mike Huckabee won enough evangelicals to hand John McCain the nomination in 2008, then Rick Santorum swept southern conservatives and challenged Mitt for the evangelical vote in 2012.

But now, all that is past. Evangelicals are finally united behind Mitt (even 2008 Huckabee supporter – and coolest action star in the universe – Chuck Norris is pleading with evangelicals to vote Barack Obama out of office), and Mitt’s rivaling George Bush’s astounding share of the evangelical vote in 2008. Pro-Obama evangelicals are coming back home to the Republican Party after Obama’s almost four-year assault on religious liberty and his zealous support for abortion. In short, evangelicals – as theologically and culturally divided as we are – will be there for Mitt on election day.

Curiously, however, we’ve heard disturbing reports that LDS Mitt supporters are hanging back just a bit. Some are afraid of stereotyping (“just because I’m Mormon doesn’t mean I’m going to automatically support Mitt. After all, I can’t stand Harry Reid!”), but many more seem just a bit confused about the role of the church in politics. If the LDS church is politically neutral, how can you use your church relationships to mobilize voters and donors?

But let’s back up a moment. Is the LDS church really “neutral?” Is my Presbyterian Church really “neutral?” Yes, I’ve read the portions of the LDS Handbook that emphasize that the church is politically neutral and doesn’t endorse candidates. But the fact that the church is nonpartisan doesn’t mean that it’s neutral on the key moral issues of the day or that the church’s members must maintain their neutrality. In fact, the LDS Handbook specifically urges member involvement:

“Members are encouraged to support measures that strengthen the moral fabric of society, particularly those designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society.”

Let’s be perfectly clear, after the God-booing abortion celebration masquerading as the Democratic National Convention, the moral choices in this election are beyond stark. Let’s just examine the issue of abortion. In Deuteronomy 30:19, God lays out His will for His people:

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live . . .”

And now here’s the Democratic party platform:

The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.

By contrast, here’s the Republican party platform:

Faithful to the “self-evident” truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.

Is there anything that threatens the “moral fabric of society” or the “family as the fundamental unit of society” as much as granting mothers the “right” to order doctors to kill their innocent children in the womb?

In addition, the Obama administration’s assault on religious liberty through the HHS contraception and abortifacient mandates represents a clear and present danger to the autonomy of the church. The administration is telling Americans of every faith that if they leave the walls of their church and attempt to reach out to their communities – either as business owners or through ministries – that they can only do so on the state’s terms while advancing the state’s values. This is antithetical to the First Amendment and antithetical to fundamental American traditions.

In other words, while your church and my church will not endorse any candidate for president, that does not mean that individual congregants cannot or should not use our web of church friendships and relationships to invest fully in the outcome of this election.

In the six years that Nancy and I have run Evangelicals for Mitt, we’ve made a huge number of Mormon friends and learned a great deal from the LDS church. In fact, we’ve taken flack for urging evangelicals to emulate Mormons in your approach to missions, service, and church growth. We have long stood on the barricades against anti-Mormon bigots. But now we’re asking you to take a page from the evangelical book: Engage fully, proudly, and without hesitation.

Call your friends from your ward. Make sure they’re registered to vote. Ask them if they’ve given to Mitt’s campaign. If they need more education on the issues, equip them with materials. Don’t use church resources; use your own. Between worship and Sunday School, I can’t tell you how many conversations Nancy and I have had about Mitt, about abortion, about religious liberty, and – yes – about the economy. Politics isn’t a “dirty business;” it’s part of our life and obligations as citizens of a nation and government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Now is not the time for concerns about stereotyping, for false worries about “neutrality.” The church will remain nonpartisan, but you don’t have to. There are more than six million Mormons in America, and the causes of life and religious liberty need every one.

It’s time to go “all-in” for Mitt.

A Time for Prayer

We, the contributing authors of MittRomneyCentral, the Article 6 Blog and Evangelicals for Mitt have come together in a common purpose today. Many of us consider ourselves religious, but not all of us are comfortable being open about that. While religion and faith in God are an important part of all of our lives, we do not take the following requests lightly. But we have come together at this time, despite any personal discomfort we may have, with the following request:

We believe this is a time for prayer.

First and foremost, hurricane-strength Isaac is bearing down on the United States’ gulf coast. New Orleans, a city hard hit by hurricane Katrina seven years ago, appears likely to be affected once again. We believe it is appropriate for all Americans to pray on behalf of those in the storm’s path.

In addition, in the next two days, tens, if not hundreds, of millions of people across the globe will be tuning in to hear Ann and Mitt Romney speak. Many more will see the speeches on YouTube or by other electronic means. Ann and Mitt are right now putting the finishing touches on those speeches and practicing their delivery.

Among those that will be watching, many will never have heard Ann or Mitt speak before. Many will be looking to form an opinion, wondering in the tumult of words by both sides who they can believe, who can be trusted. Others may have pre-dispositions to discount what Ann and Mitt say as a result of whatever personal biases they may have, whether they be political, religious or other. But the significance of Ann and Mitt’s message, both spoken and unspoken, must come through and touch the hearts of those listening. So we think it’s a time for prayer. People will then vote for the person they believe in good conscience represents the right direction for this country. But we all believe that decision should be made on the basis of a firm understanding of the truth.

All the authors of these contributing sites feel strongly about the importance of this election. Not just because of the state of the economy or of the many issues that face our country, but because of the state of religious freedom. Never have we, in our collectively long lives, seen the kinds of disdain and bitterness directed at religion and people of faith. By way of example, and not political demagoguery, we do not take it lightly that under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) religiously-affiliated institutions are now required to violate their own conscience to comply with the law. We do not take it lightly that the current administration tried to limit a church from terminating its own ministers. We think there are legitimate reasons people of all faiths should be concerned about what we’re seeing. If it’s not your faith that’s threatened by legislation or popular culture today, it may be tomorrow.

Ann and Mitt are not professional politicians. While both are trying their hardest to convey why Mitt is the right person to be president, they, like all of us, are limited by their human capacities of speech and intellect. As humans we don’t always think of the right things to say. Sometimes we make mistakes in the words we choose. Sometimes the message we intend to convey is lost in our words, despite the sincerity and intensity of our efforts.

But being people of faith, we collectively believe in miracles. We can say we’ve seen a few. Some involve the power of prayer, and even the power of many people coming together in prayer. We have faith that there is a God, and that he hears and answers prayers. Ann said in April of this year that “the kindest and sweetest of all” things she hears on the campaign trail are women who “tell me how much they care for me and how much they’re praying for me,” and that “I do need everyone’s prayers.”

So whatever form of God you believe in, Christians, Jews, Muslims, all, will you join us? Ann Romney speaks at 10 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time today. Mitt speaks at the same time Thursday. We invite all who read this post to request the blessings of God on Ann and Mitt as they prepare. We invite all to pray that those hearing them speak will do so with an open mind, and be willing to hear their message. We invite all to take an attitude of prayer throughout the convention, but in particular, at the commencement of each of Ann’s and Mitt’s speeches, at 10 p.m. today and Thursday, to offer a silent prayer in their behalf, and to continue with a prayer in your heart for them and their audience throughout their delivery.

We don’t ask for a miracle in the form some would expect we might. While many of us will be privately praying the election goes the way we would like, today we ask that all unite in a prayer that God extend his grace to those in the path of hurricane Isaac, for the protection and safety of our troops, that he attend Ann and Mitt, that they will be strengthened beyond their usual limits, and that they and their audience receive the help of God that Ann and Mitt’s message will be understood.

Please join us.

Rick Santorum’s Curious Announcement

Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (Photo by Charles Krupa / AP)

Rick Santorum

former U.S. Senator,
and
GOP primary candidate,
posted today
the
following
on his
facebook page:

Big announcement coming on Friday – be sure and check back!


Readers are invited to ruminate, hazard a guess, and generally chew it over in our comments section…

UPDATE – June 5, 2012: Not content to sit in Santorum’s bag until Friday, the cat is out:

On Tuesday, sources close to Santorum tell ABC News that the former presidential candidate will be announcing the formation of a 501 c(4) organization that he will use to pursue a set of issues he has fought for during much of his political career.

This first wave of issues is likely to focus on an agenda that includes anti-abortion and faith and family causes.

It’s not clear yet where the new 501 c(4) will be operating out of, but last month the pro-Santorum super PAC, the Red, White, and Blue Fund, became a hybrid political action committee that will also work as a traditional leadership PAC to push Santorum’s message, support his political travel, cover administrative costs and donate money to candidates he supports with similar views. This new issues-oriented push from Santorum could easily operate out of this leadership PAC

There you have it.

America – Remember, Remember!


As we consider our choice in November, America needs to reflect upon our nation’s founding, remembering what has made America, America! This is not the time to be swayed by the progressive’s, whose diatribes of division and distortion lead us down paths of debt and destruction. This is not a time to fall prey to flattery and promises of entitlement. This is not a time to abide mediocrity, thinking that we should be coddled and cared for by a duplicitous, oppressive and burdensome sovereign. This is not a time for passivity. If we think about it, we are like a ship having sailed many, many miles only to find that we have been one degree off course. That one degree has caused us to miss the mark and we now find that we are many, many miles away from where we intended to be.

We are, after all, Americans. We stand where few have stood, which is why we kneel in grateful appreciation. We have a stewardship to stand for liberty and freedom – to defend the downtrodden and care for the needy. To do so, we need to be a free and self-reliant people, remembering who we are and the divine entreaty given to each of us, and to this land we call America. This is a time to stand together against those who would lead us into bondage and oppression, in the name of “fairness” and government dependency. This is a time for serious reflection, a time for remembering. This election is a time for men of faith to lead us as they have before. Ronald Reagan was such a man.

Mitt Romney is no less. His life has been a preparation for this pivotal moment in our America. His life is a reflection of all that is good in America. He has lived, with constancy, abiding by true and correct principles; principles that have made our nation the light of the world. We have a choice in November; the arrogance of flattery and accommodation, or the divine declaration of freedom and liberty! Barack Obama represents the arrogance of flattery, while Mitt Romney is the epitome, in meekness, of the divine declaration given to each American and to America.


When comparing the hearts and minds of men who seek to lead America, and observing their experience and choices in life, it is clear – Barack Obama cares deeply about Barack Obama and his ideology of dependency, while Mitt Romney cares deeply about America and Americans, and the needed interdependency of freedom.

America, remember!

********** This Site is Worth Setting in Favorites **********

For those of you seeking additional insight beyond the mere political, I highly recommend the writing of our friends over at Article 6 Blog. Their research is second to none and their writing is intellectually stimulating as they bring to light those who attempt to obfuscate or otherwise distract from truth. Their exposure of the ignorant I find to be refreshing; even cathartic. Frankly, I am inspired by their tireless efforts to promote the most qualified presidential candidate this country has presented in decades — these three men, Lowell, Reynolds, and Schroeder provide an invaluable service to America as they inform us and denounce the ignorant among us.

Craig and Dad

Many of you leave comments in the published posts here at Mitt Romney Central referring to overt bigotry you have discovered in your research of those who support candidates opposing Governor Romney or you ask why Governor Romney does not seem “to connect” to many in the South. Keeping up on the work of Lowell, Reynolds, and Schroeder will help you understand that Governor Romney’s remarkable success to date is all the more impressive when you understand who opposes him out of ignorance, fear, or bigoted agenda.

The kind of resistance we are seeing right now against Governor Romney in the underground is nothing compared to what is brewing in the Obama camp.

THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET REALLY INTERESTING

As a frequent visitor to MRC, you may have wondered why we generally do not write about or report on the obvious religious undertones that “reporters” touch on in their coded missives. Maybe you have considered us ignorant to the obvious — we are not. Maybe you have considered us shy on the subject — we are not.

An important guiding principle of the MRC contributors is to promote Governor Romney’s candidacy with fact, truth, the record, and light. In part, we feel confident in doing so because we know our candidate will overcome the unseemly no matter how passionate his opponents are in promoting the dark side. Additionally, we are confident that others more qualified than we will handle the subject — they are Article 6 Blog.

Mitt Romney: Why People of Great Faith are Voting for the Man

For the last four days, I have been meaning to publish a short video clip of an interview I saw on CNN, the night of the Florida primary, after the polls had closed (trust me, this is NOT stale). Ever since I first saw Ralph Reed on television many years ago, I have always admired his intelligent, insightful political analysis. Anderson Cooper interviews Ralph Reed, who is President of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, seeking his expert insight as to why so many voters of faith chose Governor Romney that day in Florida. In my opinion, this two minute video clip is the best piece of video explaining why Governor Romney is on his way to becoming our next President of the United States. If you do nothing else today, please take 2 minutes to see this video clip! (thank you to a good friend for directing me that night to watch this interview):

PLEASE — PLEASE — PLEASE — WATCH: ***** RALPH REED Interviewed *****

Ralph Reed

A few of his better quotes:

“An across the board sweep!” — “He split the evangelical vote with Gingrich” — “He won the Catholic vote by 26 points with two Catholics on the ballot!” — “He won women by a huge margin!” — “Very impressive”

[by the way, the FOX election coverage did not even compare with CNN's coverage, which was the most professional overall election night coverage that I have seen in many years]

Many of you may be visiting this site for the first time to learn more about what makes this guy Mitt Romney tick. You may have heard him refer to our “Creator” a few times in his speeches, especially when referring to the source of American rights. Many people do not know that as Governor, he worked closely with leaders of many different synagogues, churches, and faiths. You may be wondering why so many evangelicals and Catholics are lining up to support and promote the candidacy of Governor Romney for President of the United States. What makes this guy tick?

Romney Headed Back to Iowa, Interviewed in Denver, Houston (VIDEOS)

Autumn in rural Iowa...
Mitt Romney will return to the Hawkeye State to campaign on Monday, November 7, 2011.

Mitt Romney is heading back to the Hawkeye State next week…

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney returns to state Monday

Associated Press
November 2, 2011

DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is returning to Iowa Monday to campaign in territory he captured during his bid for the GOP nomination four years ago.

Aides say the former Massachusetts governor plans to campaign in Dubuque and Scott counties, along a swath of eastern Iowa he carried in his second-place finish in the 2008 caucuses.

Romney has kept a low profile in Iowa this year, but has recently added staff and spoken of winning the leadoff nominating contest set for Jan. 3.

He campaigned in western Iowa in October.

Romney was last in Iowa on October 20th, where he held a business roundtable in Treynor.

Yesterday, The Gov was in the Mile High City. Here’s video of his interview with 9NEWS anchor Kyle Clark; Romney discussed his campaign ideas:

UPDATE – Here’s another interview of Romney on Houston KTRK TV (H/t Bosman):
