Hi I'm praying for the lions in Zagreb, Croatia in the citty Zoo named Leo, Ayana, Nyate. In the Texas zoo for the white lion cub named Sango and his mum Adia. And lions in the Napoli Zoo in Italy which are in really bad condition and whose names I could not find online. And I pray for all the lions held in captivity across the Europe in ZOOs and circuses. May they all roam freely.

Hello - Eileen here :-)
Please can you add the names of three lionesses and one small male cub who at the moment are in the Ukraine.
Their names are as follows
Nathen (small male cub)

Initially I was involved with Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary trying to raise funds to bring the lionesses back to Emoya in Africa. Unfortunately egos got in the way and both Emoya and myself chose to walk away. Funding disappeared etc..... Just lately I have found out that these lions will now be located at a facility in Port Elizabeth with an organisation that is also in partnership or connected with a cub petting etc. facility. I am heartbroken and am praying it is not what I think it is.
For years I have lived in Port Elizabeth when not working in the UK and go home regularly so I am very aware of the cub petting facility there and have always been very focal if I hear of people wanting to visit there.
So..... after this long rant please add these lionesses and cub to the prayer list as I know their life has been horrendous.
Wynter Worsthorne
Thank you, everyone. All these names will be added to the records. Many Many thanks again,for all of your support.
Janine Opheim
If you have names and photos of Lions please email them to me and I'll forward them on to Linda and Wynter.

Hello & Thank You. Last week you did ask that we share any Lion that we know of in captivity: I did want to make sure that I let you know of Lions in captivity that I know of here in Nova Scotia. There is a family at Oaklawn Farm Zoo: Nyay & Obi (he passed last year) had two children: Hunter and one year later Nnenne (born in 2016). Thank You for bringing Freedom & Prayer. I will join in the replay and send deep appreciation and gratitude. With Love, Colleen

No problem Colleen. It was good to commune with the lions in our local area and check on the well being and status of each of them.

I would like to raise up the following lions in captivity: Dinari & Kamaia at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, Massachusetts, USA—they are nine-year-old brothers who were born in captivity in Dallas, Texas, USA. They are beautiful, healthy lions and I would like for us to include them also in this prayer. Warm roars, Laura
