Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who 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.
