Dear Fellow Soldier for Life:
First, let us reflect upon this salutation. If you’re reading this, then you are being called by the Holy Ghost for enlistment in what I would argue is the most critical battle, which has been fought on earthly soil. Make no mistake, while this battle is taking place outside the doors of our homes, and it literally is, it is being orchestrated by hellish forces that would render even the fiercest of men petrified and speechless, if they could see them with their eyes.
The Illinois abortion industry will in short time, ramp up their heinous killing in the post-Roe environment. Illinois has been taking the lives of over 40,000 precious babies annually, which have been carefully crafted by God’s hand. This number will double if we do not accept God’s invitation for enlistment.
There is much that must be done, and much that can be done. We must vote. We must avoid patronizing businesses that support abortion to the best of our ability. We must boldly evangelize our neighbors, even in our places of work…REGARDLESS OF THE COST! We must support our pregnancy centers. We must protect our churches. And, we must take to the streets, use our agency, and exercise our God-given right to assemble and counsel mothers on the sidewalk.
Please sign-up for hours and commit now to coming out to pray at this location (the only 40 Days for Life location in the city of Chicago). Men in particular are needed to fortify the front line efforts on the sidewalk. Men in general ought to be first to arrive, and the last to leave when it comes to sidewalk efforts at abortion clinics.
GO HERE TO JOIN OTHER MEN PRAYING ON THE SIDEWALK EVERY FIRST SATURDAY:
The recent escalation in violence by abortion promoters has led many pro-life advocates, including many in the clergy, to render sidewalk efforts as “divisive”. Nothing could be further from the truth. Tearing moms and dads away from their children by issuing babies a death sentence, and then garnering a profit from this crime, which is only possible because of the insane lie that a child in the womb is somehow not a human being…….IS DIVISIVE. Don’t let anyone or anything deter you from this obvious understanding. In contrast, peacefully praying for moms to change their mind, and counseling moms going to abortion appointments is unifying. Period.
HERE ARE FOUR WAYS THAT YOU CAN ENLIST IN THE BATTLEFRONT FOR LIFE RIGHT NOW:
1. Sign-up now for three days that you can pray for two hours at 40 Days for Life Chicago. Go to the calender section right now, pick three days between Sept. 28th and Nov. 6th., and "submit hours" for vigil coverage.
2. Help me fill the sidewalk with men every First Saturday (starts 10/1 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm). Go to: https://www.vision2020il.org/LIFE. Please add your name and email to the sign-up sheet to come out on the First Saturdays of every month. We need to fill the sidewalk with men on every first Saturday. This effort begins Oct. 1st and will continue beyond the 40 Days for Life fall season. This is a year-round effort to bring men to pray on the sidewalk. This is also occuring at the American Women's Medical Center abortion clinic (2744 N. Western Ave.).
3. Become a part of the Vision 2020 Life Network by being a point of contact for your church. Does your church have a prominent and thriving Respect Life ministry? If not, then appoint yourself as the Respect Life Coordinator. YOU DO NOT NEED PERMISSION FROM YOUR PASTOR TO FIGHT THE CULTURE OF DEATH. If you cannot operate within the walls of your actual church, then you can lead others at your church from your home or by meeting outside of the actual church. God has given you and I permission already to fight the culture of death. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
4. Join the Revive 365 sidewalk counsel team and help us counsel moms and dads on the sidewalk. We currently havee 10-15 committed sidewalk counselors who are planning to regularly counsel moms planning to abort their children. Is God calling you to steer moms away from their abortion appointments? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
ACTION! ACTION! ACTION!
