Hear our humble prayer, O God,

for our friends the animals

Especially for animals that are suffering;

For any that are hunted or lost or

deserted 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
