Vision For The Worldwide Prayer Circle For Animals
Worldwide animal cruelty and exploitation are symptoms of a deeply embedded, speciesist world-view that maintains that certain human beings have the right to commodify, exploit, enslave, and kill whomever they deem ‘less than human.’ Let us address the cause of animal suffering holistically:
•Both physically through non-violent action, and
•Metaphysically by spiritually encircling the world with compassion for all life. We must not underestimate how powerful our thoughts and prayers can be.
The Prayer Circle for Animals (PCA) is a non-denominational circle of people devoted to using action and the power of prayer, meditation, and/or focused thought to liberate all animals from human oppression and exploitation. PCA believes that, by adding the power of prayer to all the other animal rights work currently being done, this circle of prayers will:
•Create an energy field of compassion and caring for all beings of Earth;
•hasten the transformation we are seeking for a world at peace;
•Strengthen us all for the work ahead;
•Elevate global consciousness to the awareness that all life is sacred and interconnected and to the joyful acknowledgement of our kinship with every being;
•More intensely awaken within us the ever-loving presence of Divine compassion and mercy.
PCA honors the prayer traditions of all religions and encourages participants to use any form of prayer, meditation, or focused thought that is comfortable. In fact, Circle members who have no particular spiritual beliefs but who believe in the proven power of focused thought are absolutely welcome. There are no requirements to joining the Prayer Circle for Animals other than an interest in helping animals through prayer or focused thought and a willingness to commit to faithfully repeating at least once daily this Prayer for the Animals in a heartfelt mood of thanksgiving for the ongoing manifestation of love and peace on earth.
“Compassion encircles the Earth for all beings.”
Because prayer gains power and effectiveness when our very lives are reflections of our prayers, we encourage, but do not require, participants to adopt a cruelty-free, vegan lifestyle. Such a commitment involves not using animals for food, clothing, beauty and cleaning products, exploitative entertainment, and other forms of abuse and oppression. Also, eating organically grown foods helps protect birds, wildlife, and insects from pesticides, herbicides, and other toxins. The spiritual connection between animal beings and human beings grows out of the understanding that we are all expressions of an infinite loving Presence, and as we acknowledge this interconnection and live in harmony with it, our very lives become prayers of compassion and healing.
We are working together in one spirit with the animals to create the most massive paradigm shift ever known on this planet. We are praying together and envisioning together the dawning of an entirely new humanity--one that finally and truly understands that all life is sacred and interconnected. Thank you for joining The WorldwidePrayer Circle for Animals. You are a true hero to the dear animals of Earth and to us as well.
