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”

This Week’s Prayer from Judy Carman

INTERNATIONAL RESPECT FOR CHICKENS DAY IS MAY 4 AND ALL OF MAY IS RESPECT FOR CHICKENS MONTH: While looking for United Poultry Concerns’ (UPC) reminder about International Respect for Chickens Day, I was horrified to see what popped up. Among others was an “International Chicken Wing Day.” What could be more opposed to respect for chickens than that? On the other hand, perhaps, many people looking for the latter might run across UPC's link, click on it, and be restored to the truth about who chickens are—our dear and precious cousins. Please do go to UPC’s website this week for ideas on how to honor chickens on May 4 and beyond. They need our prayers, and they need our actions. They are crying for help with their voices that very few understand. And many are so depressed and defeated that they can’t even cry. We need to be their translators. We need to show people “what wings are for,” to use UPC’s beautiful phrase. Let's get ready for this important event.

OUR PRAYER THIS WEEK AND THE MONTH OF MAY FOR LIBERATION AND RESPECT FOR ALL CHICKENS!! Light of the World, we give thanks always for our honorable and brave chicken relatives. We give thanks also for the many chicken sanctuaries where those who have been rescued from human cruelty can live out their lives, free and surrounded by love from their families and from the awakened human beings who care for them. We give thanks that these sanctuaries help us to believe and visualize that we can liberate chickens and all animals and alter the course of humanity’s future from violence to love for all beings. We especially pray this week for UPC and all the actions taken to educate people about the dignity of chickens. May all these actions go straight to the hearts of all, so that all people may feel the transcendent joy that comes from loving the dear chickens of the world. The Divine Love that flows through us gives us the strength and the conviction that we can create a vegan world, a world of absolute, unalterable respect and love for all chickens and all animals everywhere. Help us to be love and to bring love to all people and all beings. May Divine Wisdom, the animals’ grace, and our true hearts guide us toward ahimsa, peace, liberation, and love for all. We pray always for wisdom and deep compassion to fill us as we seek ways to use our inner gifts to bring freedom to all. 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 be free.

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, and the Circle of Compassion team.
