(RNS) Many of the top 10 Republican presidential contenders gave God a nod during the Fox News televised 2016 election debate Thursday (Aug.6).

The concluding question asked about how God might give them a word on how to deal in the Oval Office if elected.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said, “I’m blessed to receive a word form God every day” through the Bible.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said God doesn’t give him a Do List but he “calls me to live by his will.”

Ohio Gov. John Kasich believes the Lord wants America “to succeed and to lead.”

But Florida Senator Marco Rubio has a zinger for his benedictory comment: “God has blessed with our party with some very good candidates” — not so the Democrats.

Earlier in the debated, several wove God into their comments on other questions.
