The Animals’ Prayer

Our Creator,

We thank You for your compassion on us (Psalm 145:9) and for giving humans to care for us. But Your people have become greedy and evil in their treatment of us believing the lies of this world concerning us. We are nothing but objects to them to breed and live in confined areas only to be shoved in trucks to be killed in places that are full of suffering and fear even to celebrate You on religious holidays! We belong to You and we want to live our lives as you created us to live -- free from stress and abuse.

Some of us are left outside to live in all kinds of weather with no food or water. We don’t feel well and need help; some of us are experimented on and suffer for what they feel are ‘righteous’ reasons; some of us suffer for people to wear our fur; some of us suffer to entertain in staged fighting -- tortured having spears stuck in us or to fight with other animals; we are taken away from our mothers to be used for entertainment in circuses or in rodeos where we are permanently injured; we are raced and whipped and killed if we don’t run fast enough and caught in cruel traps or shot in our natural environment for no good reason other than we exist. Many are left injured and our orphans are left behind to starve. When will this evil stop?

The Bible says for humans to “Let everything that has breath give praise to the Lord.” Psalm 150:6 We want to praise you with our lives and with our voices you have given us, but we only know fear and suffering. Our suffering has been hidden for decades and no one seems to care or teach your compassion and the responsibility you gave them to take care of us. They have twisted your Word of having dominion over us to mean that they can do whatever they want with us. They are not letting us give you praise.

We just want to live as You created us to live. We groan waiting for the children of God to set us free from slavery to corruption (see Romans 8:19-22). Someday You will hold Your people accountable for us (see Hebrews 4:13). Even the Israelites died because of their greed for meat (see Numbers 11:18-25).

We need humans to be our voice and to help us live stress free. Please have your people proclaim compassion for us. Please change their hearts of stone to have Your heart of compassion for us. It will not only help us, but will help their own souls.

We look forward to living with you forever in harmony with all you have created in your Kingdom if not on earth --- on Your holy mountain with You forever. (Isaiah 65:25) We belong to You and thank You for making us part of your redemption from this world (see Colossians 1:16, 20).

Amen

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
