‘Here Am I Lord, Use Me’: Ted Cruz’s Dad Says Holy Ghost Authorized White House Run (VIDEO)

GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz decided to run for president based on divine calling, his father told a religious television station.


Pastor Rafael Cruz told the Dove TV that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’ decision resulted from 6 months of prayer, which culminated in a 2-hour session in which Cruz felt divine inspiration which directed him to enter the race, according to Right Wing Watch.

During the intense prayer session, Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, said “seek God’s face, not God’s hand,” the elder Cruz said. He believes this was divinely inspired as well.

“It was as if there was a presence of the Holy Spirit in the room and we all were at awe,” Cruz stated, “and Ted, all that came out of his mouth, he said, ‘Here am I Lord, use me. Here am I Lord, I surrender to whatever Your will for my life is.’ And it was at that time that he felt a peace about running for president of the United States.”

Cruz on Monday night won the Iowa caucus against rival Donald Trump.
