Bird Prayers


How to pray with the birds:
1. Wake up
2. Walk outside where there’s a lot of trees
3. Listen
4. Hear the blending of birdsong
5. Pick out certain ones
6. Count how many different songs there are
7. Listen for rhythm and rhyme of the song
8. Listen for mockingbirds who mimick the others
9. Try to actually see them calling so you can know what type make that call
10. Thank God with them, for the birds are taught by God to sing for him.

This is the reverse in a way of St. Francis of Assisi’s sermon to the birds. Rather, the birds are teaching us something. Below are links to St. Francis.
