Prayer for Animals
our humble prayer, O God, for
our friends the animals, especially for
animals who are suffering; for any that are
hunted or lost or destroyed or frightened
or hungry; for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity
and for those who deal with them we ask
a heart of compassion and gentle hands and
kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true
friends to animals and so to share the
blessings of the merciful. -Albert Schweitzer
