Prayers and Poems for creation and those in the news

In support of those protesting at the slaughter and abuse of whales & dolphins

For those savagely hunted in their thousands in the oceans - we pray protection

For those cruelly left to die alone in aquariums we pray freedom

For those who hurt imprison and abuse sentient creatures we pray compassion

Loving God  help us and use to bring about the day when the oceans teem with life  not tears. When the seas are blue not red with the blood of your creatures. When the sea world parks are empty and all your animals  are free. We pray urgently, lovingly and in Christ's name Amen.

In support of the Rally for Endangered Species

Supporting those at the Endangered Species Trade Conference and Praying for renewed hope for elephants, tigers, bears and all hunted and persecuted animals

As the sunrise breaks through the darkness bringing a new dawn so may we break through into the dark places of animal suffering and bring new hope.

As a seed pushes through the soil and reaches for the sun so may we have the courage to push on with our efforts and reach out to those endangered by greed and apathy

As a single candle can light up a whole room, so may we each light a small flame and together transform our environment

May we use our voices and our lives to make the illegal animal trade history, may we give our energy and our resources that all creatures may run free in the future and may we leave as our legacy a world we can all be proud of.

Amen

For Marius

 

In memory of Marius needlessly killed in Copenhagen Zoo today

 

It's a sad day for the human race when laws matter more than lives, when beauty is crushed by bureaucracy when the protected are betrayed by their protectors, when the sacred is called surplus It's a sadder day still for the animals

 

Gracious God forgive our abuse of your creatures on the land and in the oceans. Give us eyes to see as you see. Hearts to love as you love and grant us the will and the courage to work for the good of all creation that there may be no more senseless deaths. We ask this in Jesus name Amen. 

 

For the dogs in Romania

We entrust to you God of love the suffering dogs of Romania – those who have been slaughtered and those in pain now and we pray for those responsible for the cruelty and death of so many.

May those who have been brutal learn to be gentle Those who have closed their hearts to compassion be moved to care Those who have been agents of violence be transformed into bathers of wounds Those who have broken the Law be brought to account by the community of nations Those who have turned a blind eye, be inspired to see, to act , to change. Those who have been silent speak out Those we have been complacent be challenged. But most of those may those poor dogs who have suffered so terribly be blessed with kindness even now as we pray and may those who have died be welcomed into that place where there is no violence, no suffering, no brutality.

We pray in the name of Jesus whose hands and feet bore the marks of the torturers nails

Amen.

For Little Ruffi

 

There's a dying going on within these walls                                                               Though none would know by passing                                                                       Last breaths are counted out Last words said                                                          New dreams formed in semi consciousness as sounds of this world and the music of the next combine .

A bed of straw affords a final resting place                                                              A candle warmth and light                                                                                          Until the earth reclaims what she only lent us                                                           and releases that she cannot now contain

In a caravan, in march, in mud a chicken dies

Loved 

You Weep

A moon bear safe from a bile farm look at animalsasia.org.uk to help others

 

When a snail is crushed without a thought When a lion born free  is trapped and  caught You weep

When bears see life through bars and cage When fighting dogs are centre stage You weep

When tusks are torn from dying beasts When geese are force fed for our feasts You weep

When dolphins die and seas turn red When donkeys work until they're dead You weep

When lands are raped and trees hacked down When oil is spilled and thousands drown You weep

When pollution robs the world of breath When torture victims scream for death You weep

When friend kills friend in civil war When the rich refuse to feed the poor You weep

When a mother sees her baby die When instead of 'us' we all say 'I' You weep

When a bomb goes off in a crowded place When religions power conceals your face You weep

When we don't know you're at our side When we don't see love crucified You Weep.

Creator God, Spirit, Son For love of all – You Weep.
