Mitt Romney has won the Wyoming caucuses with 39 percent of the vote. Rick Santorum finished second, with 32 percent, followed by Ron Paul (21 percent), and Newt Gingrich (8 percent). However, Wyoming (like Iowa, Maine, and Minnesota) doesn’t bind its delegates, meaning that the state’s delegates (who haven’t been chosen yet) could theoretically choose to vote however they like at the convention, regardless of whether their convention votes mirror the caucus results or not.
This means that he’s won the last four states as we go into Super Tuesday!
Some of you may know that EFM has called for a weekly fast for our nation. We’ve been fasting for three weeks and have gotten great reports from our readers who are participating all over America. Some are fasting politics, some are fasting blogging, some are fasting meals. This Monday – the 5th – please consider joining us:
What exactly are we doing and what are we asking you to do?
Fasting is simply abstaining from food for a certain amount of time in order to seek God. It was a normal, and expected spiritual discipline in both the Old and New Testament time periods. (King David, Moses, and even Jesus fasted.)
This isn’t some sort of spiritual ploy to earn God’s favor. Nor is it a way to manipulate this election or even create our desired outcome. This is a plea to God for our nation.
When: Every Monday, we will be fasting. You are welcome to join us – or not. No pressure. If you don’t want to do this regularly, please consider joining us in a one-time nation-wide fast on Monday, March 5th – the day before Super Tuesday.
How: Most of us will be fasting from food. Some of us will also be fasting from Drudge, Fox News, CNN, and even blogging. You might want to fast from just lunch (or meat, or chocolate, or whatever. Just do what you’re led to do.)
Who: Anyone can join us, regardless of party or preferred candidate.
What to Pray: Of course, you can focus on whatever you’d like in your own prayers. Here are some of the things we might be praying about:
- For our current President, that he’d have the moral and political courage to do what is best for the nation.
- For our next president, that he’d set high moral and ethical standards of conduct for himself and those associated with him, setting and example for other world leaders to follow.
- For our economy.
- That judges of high moral character and sharp, legal minds would be added to the Supreme Court.
- That the evil of abortion will end.
Starting this list makes me realize how many things could be on this list. I also want to pray specifically for the Romneys, for fortitude and peace as they go through this election cycle.
I also want to pray for my own heart that I’ll trust in God more than I trust in our government or our leaders.
