A Prayer for the Animals

Hear our humble prayer, Oh God, for our friends the animals
Especially for animals who are suffering
For any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry
And for all that must be put to death
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity
And for those who deal with them we ask
A heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals...
And so to share the blessings of the merciful.

(written by that great humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer)

In the year 2001, 40,000 healthy animals were killed
in a depopulation cull to control foot-and-mouth disease on the Island of Anglesey in N. Wales
[More information below]
This prayer was offered up for them

*What is Man Without the Beasts?     *Compassion For Cows

About Albert Schweitzer
By modern standards, the famous African missionary, Albert Schweitzer, was not always "politically correct". However, if we view him in the context of the age and culture to which he belonged, he made a major contribution to the quality of life, particularly for his pioneering of the ethics values: "Reverence for Life" and "Compassion over Sentiment". See The Ethics of Albert Schweitzer in the 21st Century.

 

 
Oh Great Spirit - Please Heal the Animals!

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Who have taught us. Who have guided us. Who have sustained us. Who have healed us.
Please heal the animals!
In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Whom we have slaughtered. Whom we have feared. Whom we have caged. Whom we have persecuted.
Whom we have slandered. Whom we have cursed. Whom we have tortured.
Please protect the animals!
In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Whose habitats we have stolen. Whose territory we have plundered. Whose food we have appropriated.
Whose young we have killed. Whose lives and ways of life we threaten.
Please restore the animals!
In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.
Forgive us. Have mercy. May they return. Not as a resurrection, but as living beings.
Here On this earth which is also theirs.
Oh Great Spirit. Please heal the animals. Please protect the animals. Please restore the animals.
So that OUR lives may also be healed. So our souls may also return. So our spirits may also be restored.

Oh spirit of Raven. Oh spirit of Wolf. Oh spirit of Whale. Oh spirit of Snake.

TEACH US, AGAIN, HOW TO LIVE!

A dramatised story told by a vet in the UK Government Veterinary service of true-life emotional trauma in rural communities resulting from disease control measures.
