Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update
Please share with friends!!
Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to
uplift humanity’s consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves.
Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this
prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:
“COMPASSION ENCIRCLES THE EARTH FOR ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE”
Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman
On May 4 we stand tall for International Respect for Chickens Day. This important day was initiated by United Poultry Concerns (www.upc-online.org) in 2005. Its purpose is to
celebrate chickens as well as to protest their abuse. President of UPC, Karen Davis, urges “everyone to do a compassionate ACTION for chickens, on or
around May 4th. A library display, a vegan open house, an informative blog post, or simply talking to family and friends about the
plight – and delight – of chickens are great ways to stick up for chickens,” Davis suggests. Also the month of May is International
Respect for Chickens Month. As a Prayer Circle we can combine our actions with prayers and help pave the way for all the activism that will take place on
that day and month by infusing every event with metaphysical power.
When I wrote Peace to All Beings, I gave it the subtitle of Veggie Soup for the Chicken’s Soul.
That subtitle was, of course, meant to shake people into questioning why all the Chicken Soup for the Soul books had such oxymoronic titles. The
endless stream of books seemed to be aimed at making people feel better, yet in every single title, there was violence and total disrespect for chickens.
It was as if the chickens did not even exist except as soup for human souls. In my book (p. 209) I share two stories about chickens. “A scientist
wishing to study chicken behavior placed 21 guinea fowl eggs into a chicken’s nest. He assumed the chicken was too stupid to realize the guineas were
not her babies. Imagine his surprise when the mother chicken led her little adopted guineas not to chicken feed, but rather to an ant nest where she showed
them how to scratch the nest for pupae… just the right food for guinea babies. Another scientist placed duck eggs in a chicken’s nest to see
what she would do. To his amazement, she led her little ducklings to the water and encouraged them to swim.”
Our Prayers—In Honor, In Memory, In Deep and Enduring Respect—For Chickens.
Dear chickens of earth, we know that billions of you are suffering right now at the hands of human beings, and so our spirits and the Love that enlivens
the universe reach out to every single one of you. In spirit, we hold each one of you in our arms and ask Divine Intelligence to send Infinite Love to each
of you, to bless you, to ease your pain, to let you know you are not alone, to let you know there are millions of us who respect you and see who you really
are. You bring us beauty in your sweet faces and peace in your gentle ways. We join with you, dear chickens, in crying out for an end to the violent
stealing of your eggs, your babies, and your bodies; for an end to using you for any purpose. We cry out with you, knowing that Universal Love and all
human souls hear those cries. And with you we hold in our hearts the True and Real Vision of the coming world in which all your children are free to live
their own lives in peace and freedom. May all human beings awaken immediately and vow to never again use, kill, confine, or eat these wondrous beings known
as chickens. May peace, compassion, love and respect prevail for all chickens everywhere on earth. We will not forget you; we will not stop until you are
all free. (Part of this is reprinted from last year’s Prayer Circle.)
As always, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and shining the Light of Truth for all to
see, so that one day soon, all beings will live in peace together.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings everywhere.
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
