People often feel deep emotions in response to the lives of animals. Learning of one animal's suffering or many animals' suffering may touch us very deeply.

Adams. Here are prayers for parents of children who have lost pets, prayers for farmed animals or animals imprisoned in laboratories, for the hunted and endangered, for the wellbeing of all animal caretakers, for animals in shelters.

For additional information on the book, go to www.prayersforanimals.org. We love our pets. We care for them by feeding them and taking them to the veterinarian. But do we ever pray for them? Because we've never been given the words to express what's in our hearts, these animals that reflect the Divine are too often excluded from our prayer life. We've been taught to pray for those we love, those in need, those who are alone, and all those less fortunate than us, but seldom do we find texts that teach us to pray for the animals around us. In Preces pro Animalibus, Lori Marra gives us the words that so often fail us when we are confronted with an animal that requires and deserves our prayers. This collection of simple, sincere prayers, poems, and stories will guide you and inspire you to pray for animals in crisis, for new pet arrivals, for working animals, for pet owners, for nature, and for animals that have passed on. This book also includes a special section on organizations that aid animals. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to agencies that aid animals.

At least 65% of all American homes include pets, and many owners have begun to recognize the divine nature of all "creatures great and small.” This unique collection of blessings specifically addresses the spiritual needs of those modern-day pet owners . Besides offering original prayers and adaptations of classics, it explains how to lead rituals and celebrations, and provides advice on involving pets in spiritual events, including those conducted by the clergy. Although the work honors many faiths, it is non-denominational and non-religious, and encompasses elements from many cultures and traditions. There are healing prayers for ailing animals, ceremonies for special occasions (such as the arrival of a new pet), and blessings for a long and happy life with your animal companion.

While keeping physically fit and achieving expert law enforcement skills are essential to a successful police officer, maintaining a strong heart, mind, and soul are also crucial to surviving in his or her career. This new edition of this singular book serves as a tool to help law enforcement officers consciously take the pulse of their soul, ensuring that they stay on a strong spiritual and moral path. The book is not just a collection of devotions with religious meaning, but rather it clearly identifies some of the most trying situations that officers often find themselves in and helps them make sense of it all. The author then links these situations with relevant biblical passages. Each devotion in the book is freestanding and can be used in any order. The devotions and corresponding situations are presented in five categories: Justice, Dealing with People, Crime and Police Situations, Prevention, and Self-Care. Each of the 69 devotion sections concludes with questions for reflection and a meaningful prayer. The revision of the text includes 15 percent more devotions, and the Appendix of Prayers for Law Enforcement Situations has been increased from two to 22 prayers. These address a wide variety of ceremonial functions, including cadet graduations, retirements, blessings for substations, and award banquets. Also new is a guide for offering prayers for Fire Department events. This unique book is designed not only for the individual police officer, but firefighters, law enforcement supervisors, community service officers, chaplains, and ministers as well.

The fast-growing field of Animal Studies is a varied and much contested domain. Engagement with animals has encouraged both collaboration and conflict between researchers within the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Animal Encounters comprises a series of meetings not only between diverse beasts, but also between distinct disciplinary methods, theoretical approaches, and ethical positions. The essays here collected come together from literary and cultural studies, sociology and anthropology, ecocriticism and art history, philosophy and feminism, science and technology studies, history and posthumanism, to study that most familiar and most foreign of creatures, a ~the animala (TM). These encounters between leading practitioners in the field highlight the promise and potential of interspecies exchange and mutual provocation.

A Communion of Subjects is the first comparative and interdisciplinary study of the conceptualization of animals in world religions. Scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including Thomas Berry (cultural history), Wendy Doniger (study of myth), Elizabeth Lawrence (veterinary medicine, ritual studies), Marc Bekoff (cognitive ethology), Marc Hauser (behavioral science), Steven Wise (animals and law), Peter Singer (animals and ethics), and Jane Goodall (primatology) consider how major religious traditions have incorporated animals into their belief systems, myths, rituals, and art. Their findings offer profound insights into humans' relationships with animals and a deeper understanding of the social and ecological web in which we all live. Contributors examine Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Daoism, Confucianism, African religions, traditions from ancient Egypt and early China, and Native American, indigenous Tibetan, and Australian Aboriginal traditions, among others. They explore issues such as animal consciousness, suffering, sacrifice, and stewardship in innovative methodological ways. They also address contemporary challenges relating to law, biotechnology, social justice, and the environment. By grappling with the nature and ideological features of various religious views, the contributors cast religious teachings and practices in a new light. They reveal how we either intentionally or inadvertently marginalize "others," whether they are human or otherwise, reflecting on the ways in which we assign value to living beings. Though it is an ancient concern, the topic of "Religion and Animals" has yet to be systematically studied by modern scholars. This groundbreaking collection takes the first steps toward a meaningful analysis.

A prayer that promises miracles "This book is for anyone who wants a miracle, has ever wanted to see God's work in action, or needed proof of His existence. It is for the doubters and believers alike. If you think nothing is out there, think again. Whether you're an agnostic astrophysicist or a seminary priest, you will discover an ancient gift that works every time, no questions asked. By the time you finish this book, your perception of the universe will have changed. If you thought God was out there but not listening, you may discover that you have been tuning into the wrong channels. It doesn't matter whether you want to call it the Light Force of God, the creative power of the Lord, or any other expression of omnipotent omniscience because as you'll soon discover, you have the ability to tap into it. In fact, you've had the ability all along. If you ever wondered if anyone was listening or if anyone cared, you'll soon see for yourself the benevolence that's been available to you and all of us since the dawn of time. You'll learn why the ancient sages said the Light Force always gives, always listens, and always answers. Find out how to get heard. Find out what you've been missing. See an infinite stream of miracles spread out before you, guiding your every step. As you rethink everything you've ever known, you'll see that life is not supposed to be difficult; man isn't supposed to suffer; fate isn't some abstraction beyond our control, and your life can indeed be wonderful".--From the Introduction

Preston was an only child who captured the heart and soul of his single mother. They shared many pleasurable moments together. Their life was not always easy and the story you are about to read will clearly show that their life was not scripted. Their life was full of love, laughter, joy, and sorrow. They had the love of God that brought them through all the hardships they faced. Preston had a hard time communicating and dealing with the things that life seems to throw at us all. The trials and the village that it took to guide Preston’s life would turn out to be monumental to their lives. Preston’s life was cut short on St Patrick’s Day on March 17, 2006, when God called him home. His loving spirit and his memory will thrive in the hearts of the ones that loved him and those he wished to touch.
