A Prayer For The Christmas Season

a-christmas-prayer-300x231As ethical as any theology can be, there’s no major opposition that has stopped the slaughter of chickens for Christmas. Chickens just have to die for men to celebrate.

Wow! One can either be the celebrant or the chicken, the eater or the eaten. In this season I pray, Dear Lord, by your abundant mercies and Providence, that none of my friends and I shall serve as chickens for any celebrant.

Rather, we shall eat the chickens – the wealth of nations; strangers shall favour us and helpers shall arise from around the world to bless us in Jesus’ name, Amen!

    A very big ‘Amen’ to all the prayers said here. May we be the ‘eater and not the eaten’, I likey! A timely and lovely piece, thumbs up to the author, God bless you real good.

    Lol. I have watched two cocks die, and now the last one is so lonely and I’ve said to my younger brother who likes to slaughter the innocent things, ‘I’m not eating this one, it’s not fair!’ Gosh, I actually thought so yesterday, but I still ate its relatives today.
