Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
February 6, 2017

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:

Our Daily Noon Prayer

And Our Prayer for the Week from Judy Carman

AFTER YEARS OF PROTEST AND EDUCATION RINGLING BROTHERS CIRCUS QUITS. Ringling plans to do 30 more shows in the U.S. and end their performances permanently in May of 2017 after 146 years of torturing and confining animals and calling it entertainment. Ticket sales have been dropping as activists have helped the public understand the cruelty that lurks behind the illusion of fun at animal circuses. People have listened, and they have responded with compassion. Ringling ended their elephant acts some time ago, and this led to an even bigger drop in sales. The fate of the animals abused by Ringling hangs in the balance at this point.

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK FOR THE CIRCUS ANIMALS AND FOR ALL OTHER ANIMAL CIRCUSES TO CLOSE. We give thanks for all the activists who so faithfully stood with signs, costumes, videos, street theater, and literature explaining to the, often belligerent, circus crowd the many atrocities connected with animal circuses. We give thanks for the news coverage of protests, for the people who listened, and for the brave undercover activists who showed the world the truth of the misery the animals were enduring. We know we are only part way there, but this is a magnificently huge sign that the human spirit is beginning to remember that animals are not ours to own and use. We need to celebrate and dance and sing for joy. And, as always, we recognize there is more to do. With this joy in our hearts and with our vision of peace for all beings becoming more manifested, we know we will carry on. We ask for strength and wisdom to get every animal circus to shut down. We send clarity of purpose and encouragement to those who are in positions to actively rescue the retired circus animals and find them safe homes. May this joyful news carry us forward with new momentum and renewed energy. May the animals who have suffered so long be bathed in peace and love. May they know deep in their souls that this horrific chapter of human domination is coming to an end. The long years and the families and friends who have been taken from them can never be replaced. Apologies from the human race could never be enough. But may their hearts and souls be filled with hope as they feel our solidarity with them and know that it won’t be long until all animal circuses are gone forever from this world

As always, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for

May Divine Wisdom, the animals’ grace, and our true hearts guide us toward ahimsa, peace, liberation, and lovingkindness for 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 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
