SALT LAKE CITY – An email calling for a day of fasting and prayer for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is making its rounds on the Internet.

The email asks recipients to fast and pray on Sept. 30 to petition God to bless Romney in the debates, which begin on Oct. 3.

Dear friends and family,

I have been extremely frustrated with how things are going in our country. A lot of my frustration is because I feel I don’t know what to do to really make a change. Well, this time I do. I am asking you to join me and my family on Sunday Sept. 30 by fasting and praying for Mitt Romney. That he will be blessed in the debates, which will be held Oct. 3rd. I know that seems like such a small thing but I believe “from small things, great things can come about”.  I know that fasting and praying brings about miracles. I also know of no power greater that our Father in Heaven.  

He loves this land and has blessed it many times before. . . with all our fasting and prayers their will be a great power and protection upon us and this great nation. Please send this to all who you know that may have the faith to pray for the help we so desperately need at this time. Please let this wave of faith move through out this great nation.

The letter and call for fasting are not endorsed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which maintains a politically neutral stance.

The campaign has garnered national attention after the email was published on website on Wednesday afternoon.
