Many people have asked “what I need.”
I am prepared to go forth with this by hook or by crook, and alone if necessary. I haven’t asked anyone for help, just their encouragement and prayer. God plus one is a majority, as the saying goes. However, I should have expected that the very folks who I thought would encourage me would also want to know what they can do to help. So, here goes..
First and foremost, though it seems cliche, the request for prayer was genuine. Prayer for courage on my part, receptiveness on their part, and then prayers for courage for them to do what is right and necessary. The problem ultimately is a spiritual problem. The powers arrayed against the human race are not flesh and blood, even if it is through flesh and blood that they carry out their schemes. They are great schemers, implementing their plans across generations, and even centuries. We forget this at our peril.
So, prayer. You can turn your prayers on the following points, as well.
Other things needed:
Contacts. If you know persons of influence, in particular those at the crossroads of power, your help in connecting them to me would be appreciated. These can include legislators, judges, executive branch officials, and even the staffers of these same. It can also include lobbyists. It can include corporate executives or other people who spread influence by cash; if they are conservative, and especially if they are Christian, these folks are in a position to shape what programs, agencies, and projects happen–or don’t happen. Similarly, people who may be interested in the project and you think should know about it (for whatever reason) are people I’d love to hear from. Your personal intercession and introduction with those contacts is critical.
If you really want to help, then this is the most important thing that you can help me with, as I have very few contacts at that level.
More signatures. I am informed that I am more likely to gain a hearing if I come to people with more than just my self, and instead stand in representation of others–the more ‘others’, the more likely I can get a hearing. You can either send people directly to the petition page, or you can send them first to my overview/explanation page. The more the merrier.
Continued encouragement and involvement. This is going to be a brutal process, and your continued involvement in the affair will be critical, not just in strengthening me personally, but by being alert to developments that you may be able to aid with. For example, if I’m coming into your area, I’d love to meet… and I might need a place to stay… So, drop me a note sometimes. One kind of involvement I need help with is…
Research Assistant. I have invested hundreds of hours in research in the last 6 months alone, largely nailing down documentation for things that I believed but I needed to source. But I need good information about the legislators and policy makers I plan on approaching, including such banal things as what legislation they are currently considering–and help identifying which bits of legislation are illustrative of the ‘culture of death.’ I also need help identifying which people are best worth my time to try to connect with. Can you help with this?
I think you’ll be able to figure out what these items might entail to you. If you need clarification, wish for more guidance, or want to be involved above and beyond these things, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I can think of specific needs, I’ll post them here and send them out to my email list. Join that list through this form.
