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
in many different languages
but all with the same love:
Our Daily Noon Prayer
"COMPASSION ENCIRCLES THE EARTH FOR ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE"
And Our Prayer for the Week from Judy Carman
THIS IS WORLD WEEK FOR ANIMALS IN LABORATORIES. This week
there will be rallies, protests, vigils, and marches to honor and to demand
liberation for the estimated 100 million animals suffering in laboratories with
very little regulatory oversight. The research results rarely, if ever, apply
to human beings, since physiologies of the animals differ too much from ours.
And the results are used to promote drugs for humans that often turn out to be
harmful or of no benefit. Over 95% of these animals are not protected by the
federal Animal Welfare Act, according to the Animal Legal Defense Fund. Some
progress has been made in recent years for some animals. Notably, chimpanzees
gained protection through the Endangered Species Act in 2015 and most of them
were “retired” from the torture of experiments. But for many that
“retirement” means they are warehoused in tiny, barren cages.
Project Chimps has a new 236-acre chimpanzee sanctuary in Georgia. So far, they
have managed to bring 16 of the chimpanzees at New Iberia Research Center to
the sanctuary. There are 204 chimps left at New Iberia who need to be released
to this wonderful sanctuary where they can finally begin to heal from the
immeasurable suffering forced upon them by human beings.
PRAYERS FOR FREEDOM FOR ALL ANIMALS IN LABORATORIES: We
give thanks for all the activists who have worked so hard to end vivisection.
Their voices have been raised for the animals ever since the nefarious practice
began, and they have made progress. We give thanks for all the scientists who
are perfecting non-animal tests. We give thanks for all the experimenters and
undercover activists who have had the courage to speak out against this
industry and report the atrocities being done to animals. We weep for the
massive and unbearable suffering that billions of individual mice, rats, birds,
pigs, sheep, monkeys, chimpanzees, dogs, cats, and so many more have endured.
May our grief and our anger be transformed into action and powerful prayers for
every single animal who cries out in pain and anguish. As part of our prayer
work, we hold a vision of animal experimenters looking into the eyes of the
tiniest mouse and of every animal whom they have tortured. We see them suddenly
Seeing a Being, a friend, a fellow citizen of earth whom they will, from that
moment on, work to liberate. We hold strongly to the belief that there is
kindness in every human heart waiting to be awakened. The animals are praying,
and we pray with them—may this horrifying chapter of human cruelty come
to an end now. May all 204 chimpanzees at New Iberia be released immediately to
live the rest of their lives in peace at Project Chimps. Dear animals, we see
you all finally free and in sanctuaries where you can heal and find that there
is love in the world after all. We sing your song with you, dear animals, and
we believe that love and justice will one day soon prevail so that all of you
will be safe and free from the domination, and greed of humanity. .
Thank you, dear prayer partners, for your faithful prayers and visionary
thoughts. Thanks to all of you, compassion is encircling the earth for all
beings. Thank you for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for
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
