Nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck, an outspoken supporter of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), took to social media with a request for his followers, as well as those who also support the senator's presidential bid.
He ask that they take part in a fasting and prayer on Cruz's behalf, beginning Monday night and concluding Tuesday evening. Voters in Indiana will go to the polls Tuesday in what many have said—including Cruz himself—is a critical moment for this campaign.
Beck began his post with a brief history lesson:
"It was on April 30, 1789, when George Washington raised his right hand and placed his left on the Bible which had been opened randomly to Genesis 49 due to running behind.
"He then walked a few blocks to attend a service as passed in a congressional resolution two days prior: Resolved, That after the oath shall have been administered to the president, he, attended by the vice president and members of the Senate and House of Representatives, shall proceed to St. Paul's Chapel, to hear divine service.
