This page is our Prayer List. Please uphold all of these situations, industries, and institutions in prayer; thank you.
Father, please tear down the walls of indifference and apathy that plague mankind when it comes to seeing the animal kingdom in all their beauty and awesomeness, each species, each individual, a marvelous creation of yours.
Open eyes and hearts to their suffering in all the ways they suffer as a direct result of the fall as well as a result of exploitation in all its forms by fallen mankind.
Tear down the mountains of greed, wrath, sloth, gluttony, pride, lust, envy, that grip the human race and enthrone us ever deeper into Satan’s strongholds over us.
May we make Jesus the center of our lives and endeavor to put on love above all (Col 3:14). May we not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds through your word and your presence in our lives (Rom 12:2). May we become more Christ-like in all our affairs, bringing the Father’s will upon earth as it is in heaven (Matt 6:10).
For a worldview in our churches, schools, communities, governments…everywhere…that includes animals and right relatedness to them. Shine into and expose the darkness within the industries that are conduits of systemic evil. Teach us how to exercise our God given authority over evil, to denounce and dethrone Satan.
Father, that you could accomplish through us your will upon the earth in preparation for the coming of your Son who will complete the restoration of the earth and your people into the peaceful kingdom you created all of it to be, and to complete the destruction of the devil and his evil for all eternity. Amen.

Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
