Animals Who Pray

I’ve often wondered if animals pray,
some say they have no soul.
Since our Creator made all,
it would seem that all should have a soul,
for what is a soul but a bit of God,
be it cased in a lion or me.
Yes, I believe that animals pray,
love, weep, and love through eternity.

    Beautifully written. I love this:

  2. Oh wow!! This is so beautiful. I posted a b/w image of a lion, similarly praying, in my post: Bolt of Inspiration Required.Here’s the link:
    Scroll to the last image and let me know what you think.
    I especially love lions as I am a Leo 🙂
    Thanks for sharing this!

      Yes, Marina,
      Your lion looks like he is praying to me. Your blog is unique and beautiful. Thanks for giving me the link. Animals have always been special in my life. I am blessed to live on a game preserve in central Brazil with my house abutting a beautiful floresta. The animals and I live in sweet harmony, with never a problem between us. Many people ask me if I am afraid, but I have never had a reason to be. I walk alone all the time and find that the animals actually have protected me several times. Most amazing. Thanks for your visit and comments. hugs, pat
