“I am asking you to join me and my family … by fasting and praying for Mitt Romney that he will be blessed in the debates, which will be held Oct. 3rd…I know that fasting and praying brings about miracles.”–an email circulating among Mormons in several Western states.

When the pendulum is swinging and it’s aimed right at your head

When commentators turn away and give you up for dead

When you think you should have maybe gone to dental school instead

Get down on your knees and pray and fast.

When you’re losing in Ohio here’s a tip you might find handy

It’s a lesson drawn directly from God’s modus operandi

He’ll give you what you ask for if you starve yourself like Gandhi

Or mystics in the dim and distant past.

If Gallup says it’s time to curl up in a ball and die

Remember that the only Poll that counts is in the Sky.

And we’ve converted all the dead to Mormons, which is why

It doesn’t matter if we’re running last.

We’re blanketing the airwaves with a massive prayer attack

You can’t turn off commercials from the Lord’s own Super-Pac

So any day now you will see Mitt Romney bouncing back.

We’ll get the vote that God alone can cast.
