Prayer for Wednesday

Know other creatures’ love for life,
For they are like you.
Kill them not; save their life from fear and enmity.

All creatures desire to live, not to die.
Hence to kill is to sin.
A godly man does not kill.
Therefore, kill not yourself, consciously or
Unconsciously, living organisms which move
Or move not, nor cause slaughter of them.

He who looketh on the creatures of the earth,
Big and small, as his own self, comprehendeth this immense world.
Among the careless, he who restraineth self is enlightened.

(Ahimsa Parmo Dharma – Jain prayer of nonviolence)
