A Prayer for Animals

by Albert Schweitzer
Graphics by Heather Peck

Hear our humble prayer,

O God,

for our friends, the animals,

especially for those who are suffering;

for any that are lost or deserted

or frightened or hungry.

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.
