A quorum of kabbalists held a prayer session today in Jerusalem in support of Mitt Romney Israeli Daily Yediot Ahronot has reported.

The GOP presidential candidate was served a new name, “Moshe Romney” with the suffix “Shlita” a title usually granted to the most venerable of rabbis.

The ten ultra-religious supplicants met in Jerusalem’s Ish Chayil yeshiva where they opened the ark—a ritual conducted on special occasions—and invoked divine intervention in today’s U.S. presidential election.

Yediot quoted Shmuel Ben-Atar, a haredi radio presenter who was present at the prayer session, as saying, “This kind of prayer can turn worlds upside down…We ask the people of Israel to pray that Obama – who doesn’t like Israel – is brought down.”

The article also noted that according to the prayer group “the secret formula that is certain to get Romney to win the presidency includes the repeated recitation of certain Psalms, a prayer for victory said over the open Torah ark – and giving a shekel to the needy.”

“People called us from America and asked us to bring about heavenly mercy,” Yediot quoted Ben-Atar as saying. “People around the world will pray tonight for Mitt “Moshe” Romney.”
