Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
September 12, 2016

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:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman

I SANG TO THE COWS AND THEY SANG TO ME: The cows come and go in the various pastures around my home. It is a constant heartache to see them go and, at the same time, a blessing beyond measure to be in their presence. I often sing to them, being careful not to allow thoughts of their future to enter my mind. I want to be a blessing to them and show them that there are human beings on earth who love and respect them. Today, however, on my walk, I felt something more powerfully than I ever had. A group of about 10 cows crowded up to the fence near the road on which I was walking. They had not been in that pasture before, so I don’t know if they knew me from another pasture or not. But clearly they wanted to greet me in some way. So I knelt by the fence and started to sing to them. As usual they seemed to absolutely love it in spite of my not-so-great singing voice. But as I sang, I felt more deeply and clearly than ever that these cows were singing back to me—not with audible sound, but with some sort of vibration from their hearts and souls to mine. Not only singing, but teaching me! I felt completely embraced in their love and tears filled my eyes. ‘Though I can’t find human words for their messages, I know they got through to my soul somehow. I know without doubt they, and all the other animals have so much to teach us, so much to share, so much Pure Love to give. As activists we so often think of ourselves as their protectors, but there is so much more. Just as we can heal and protect them, they can do the same for us. And they want to. It brings to mind the Bible verse (Job 12: 7 and 8) “But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; and the birds of the heavens and let them tell you. Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; and let the fish of the sea declare to you.”

PRAYERS THIS WEEK TO LISTEN WELL: We call upon Divine Love, the Love that animates and embraces all living beings, to help us really listen. Help us to hear the lessons our animal cousins, the plants and trees, and the earth have to share with us. Help us to feel the love that is pouring out to us from every rock, tree, butterfly, snail, flower, cow, dog, and from every living being. It is so much, and when we start to hear the music and feel the embrace of it all, the joy is almost overwhelming. It is so different from the everyday activity of humanity that we are used to. Give us the strength and clarity to receive it all and be revived into our true and holy nature. Give us the strength and clarity to go forward ever more effectively to finally bring an end to the human-caused suffering. Give us the strength to really listen, really hear, and really see the miracle of all this. Help us to know and sense the spiritual cord that connects our hearts to the hearts of all beings and the heart of the earth. Perhaps, this overwhelming joy is frightening those who still have not found their ahimsa heart. May all people everywhere be drawn to that joy so powerfully that they can no longer shut it off. May all human souls find the peace and joy that we have found by awakening to their loving soul connection with all beings everywhere.

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 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
