A PRAYER FOR ANIMALS

DSCN0023Hear our humble prayer, Oh God, for our friends, the animals — especially for animals who are suffering, for all that are over worked, underfed and cruelly treated, for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat against their bars, for all that are in pain or ready to make the change called “death”, for all that must be put out of their misery by human beings, through so-called death.

We ask for them all thy mercy and pity. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to the animals and so to share the blessing of the merciful, for the sake of thy son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

From The Bridge of Freedom Journal,book 5
