Healing Prayer for the Animals – Deena Metzger

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In
the name of Whale. In the name of Snake. Who have
taught us. Who have guided us. Who have sustained us.
Who have healed us.

Please heal the animals.

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In
the name of Whale. In the name of Snake. Whom we
have slaughtered. Whom we have feared. Whom we
have caged. Whom we have persecuted. Whom we
have slandered. Whom we have cursed. Whom we have
tortured.

Please protect the animals.

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In
the name of Whale. In the name of Snake. Whose
habitat we have stolen. Whose territory we have plundered.
Whose feeding grounds we have paved and netted.
Whose domain we have poisoned. Whose food we
have appropriated. Whose young we have killed. Whose
lives and way of life we have threatened.

Please restore the animals.

In the name of Raven. In the name of Wolf. In
the name of Whale. In the name of Snake.

Forgive us. Have mercy. May the animals return.
Not as a resurrection but as living beings. On earth.
On this earth that is also theirs.
Oh Great Spirit. Please heal the animals. Please protect
the animals. Please restore the animals.
So our lives may also be healed. So our souls may be
protected. So our spirits may be restored.
Oh Spirit of Raven. Oh Spirit of Wolf. Oh Spirit of
Whale. Oh Spirit of Snake.

Teach us, again, how to live.
