My bedtime prayer

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 aheart 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
