IMMLY: Wisconsin Statewide Day of
Prayer for Compassion on Tues Mar 23, 2010
|Statewide Day of Prayer for Compassion
When a friend or loved one is fighting illness, we pray for them. The collective consciousness of prayer can be a unifying and healing force for those struggling with a medical condition and the people who care about them.
Just as prayer can be a therapy in healing and dealing with chronic illness, so can medical cannabis. At the 8 hours plus Dec. 15 combined Health Committee Hearings at the Capitol for
AB554/SB368 the Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act, many patients testified how both cannabis and their faith got them through their personal ordeals.
With the JRMMA now needing the support of a majority of state legislators to become reality, it seems appropriate to call a Statewide Day of Prayer for Compassion and ask state residents, who are far ahead of their elected representatives in supporting the JRMMA, to pray for passage of this bill.
Tuesday March 23 will be that day. We ask people of faith to go to their churches in advance and ask them to participate and announce this date to their members.
Medical cannabis is not a new idea in Wisconsin. It has been languishing the legislature for decades. The sick and dying, seniors, disabled and now veterans in shocking numbers, need this medicine. No medical marijuana bill has progressed as far as the JRMMA, and we cannot let this historic moment to pass without passing it and protecting some of our most vulnerable citizens.
Please join us in for the Statewide Day of Prayer for Compassion, all day on Tuesday, March 23, 2010.
