A Prayer for Animals in Laboratories
We come together in your sight,
and in the sight of the facilities of suffering.
We ask you to comfort our hearts,
and to soften the hearts of those
who cause so much pain and death.
Bring upon them a never ending conviction
of the cruelty they inflict,
as if burning coals were piled upon their heads,
until they repent and change their ways.
Comfort all the captive animals
and bring them home to You.
Encourage us to be Your messengers
of love, hope, compassion and peace,
so that together we may bring healing to our land.
