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. Prayer connects us with God and all of Creation. Through prayer, we are made one with all of God's creatures. Arranged across the arc of the day, this book includes original prayers by Carol J. 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.

The prayers mention facts about the animals and conjecture what they might think about them, sometimes with a comical effect. For instance, the elephant prays, "You could have cut back on my gestation time. Isn't two years a little much?" A charming illustration accompanies each prayer.

Christians believe that the logos is the source of all life, yet Christian worship remains unashamedly human-centric. The world of creation, and animals in particular, is almost invisible in our worship. The churches do not have the liturgical means of celebrating the life of animals, giving thanks for their companionship, praying for the relief of their suffering, or marking their death. This unique book provides a variety of liturgies that are animal-friendly and animal-inclusive. They include services in celebration of animal companionship, services for animal welfare, healing liturgies, new eucharistic prayers "for the whole creation," and animal burial services. Underlying all these new forms is a serious theological purpose: to help us to draw deeper into the mystery of God's work in creation and to affirm other sentient beings as co-creatures with us.

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.

Lorna Byrne has helped millions of people around the world by calling on them to realise that they each have a guardian angel and by showing them that can ask for help from God and the angels. Lorna is often asked for help on how to ask and how to pray, so in this new book she gives detailed advice and also includes prayers for different occasions. She says: 'Sometimes our prayers are so focussed on asking for things, we forget to listen out for what God, the angels and our love ones are trying to tell us. God always has this abundance of blessings prepared for us, small blessings and great blessings. He wants to give every individual great life-changing blessings, beginning when that individual is born. God will do everything to make it happen, but He will never infringe on an individual's free will, which a good reason for us to engage intelligent conversation with him - listening as well as asking - in prayer.'

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.
