Prayer day against Rhino poaching - Letaba

Unread post by Sampie Cronje » Fri Jul 15, 2016 5:41 pm

We are so excited!
We will be hosting our second Prayer day against Rhino Poaching in Letaba.
The previous event was 2015-07-25.
All the churches in Phalaborwa pitched in and we had a wonderful meeting with many SANPARKS VIP members, local staff, security forces and rangers.

It was a time for motivation, inspiration, prayer and worship.


Our planned event will be on 2016-07-30 at Letaba, auditorium outside the Elephant Hall.

Sampie, wish we could be there. :(
:D Will be there in spirit and Faith Praying for all the above. :pray:

I came across the following Prayer Prayed by "Linda J. Bodicoat".

"A Prayer for Animal Welfare
Almighty God, maker of all living things, in whose Fatherly wisdom we trust
and depend. Enable us, by the power of Your Holy Spirit, to recognize the
works of Your hand in all things.
We give thanks to You, O God, for the opportunity to worship You this day
and we remember with joy and gratitude, all Your creatures, whose beauty
and diversity enriches our lives beyond measure.
We ask Your forgiveness for the many ways in which animals are abused and
exploited, through both ignorance and greed and we confess before You our
part in their suffering, acknowledging the times we have remained silent,
lacking the courage to speak out in their defence.
Strengthen us in our resolve as we aspire to lead the ‘simple’ life of Faith and
obedience, free from all earthly entrapments and material wealth, using
earth’s resources wisely, thoughtfully and faithfully.
Help us, O Lord, as we endeavour to live in harmony with all Your creatures,
leaving only the footprints of true discipleship upon this earth when we leave
and not the deep scars of greed and exploitation.
Encourage and inspire each one of us to grow in Your likeness and to be
remembered for our simplicity of heart and generosity of spirit and for our
‘oneness’ with all creation.
Grant us, O merciful God, humble and
contrite hearts and a clear vision of
Your purpose for us in Your world,
that we may become faithful stewards
of Your wondrous creation.
These things we ask in Jesus’ name.
Amen".


Linda J. Bodicoat, March 2002
"Lose yourself in Nature and find Peace!" (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
UNITE AGAINST POACHING...What we protect,
do not let poachers take it away!

Extinction is forever and survival is up to---every last one of us!
