Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
March 2, 2015
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
Guide Cows and Generous Crows:
In my book Peace to All Beings I share many stories of animals helping
human beings and, in some cases, even saving their lives. Mary, a
cow, for example, lived with Reverend Robertson who, in his later
years, became almost completely blind. Mary would lead him just
as a guide dog would do. However, no one trained her to do
it. She volunteered. I recently learned about 8 year old
Gabi who receives gifts from crows. She and her mom have been
feeding the crows for some time. Gabi now has quite a collection
of gifts the crows have left for her, usually at the bird feeder.
Gabi’s mom, Lisa, reports that she once lost her camera lens cap at the
back of their property. It soon turned up at the bird
feeder. The family has a motion sensor video camera in place
which allowed her to see, not only a crow bringing the lens cap to the
feeder where Lisa would find it, but also rinsing it off in the
A Prayer of Thanks for These Love
Stories: This week we give thanks for the thousands of stories
people have shared that prove beyond doubt what animals have always
known. We are meant to be friends, not enemies. We are
meant to help and love one another. Instead human beings have
abused and killed animals by the billions, oblivious to their
sacredness and to our kinship with them. Yet the animals still
manage to find ways to forgive our species, save us from danger and
heartache, and give us gifts of love and faithfulness. This week let us
hold in our hearts this fervent prayer (aka focused thought).
Dear crows and cows and all animals of earth, thank you for forgiving
us and for never giving up on us. Each time you reach out to one
of us and your story is told, it brings all humanity closer to
understanding who you are—our teachers, our neighbors, our fellow
travelers, our comforters, our precious friends. We are here for
you. We are here to tell your love stories. We are here to
carry your message to the human beings who don’t yet understand, but
whose hearts long to connect with you. You show us how to never give up
and we never will. We See You. We Love You. In our
hearts, we walk and fly and swim with you all. Together we can
bring paradise back to
As always, with tears of gratitude, 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
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
