PostSubject: Prayer for the Animals   Prayer for the Animals Icon_minitimeSun Mar 20, 2011 2:22 pm

Hear our humble prayer, O God,
for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for animals that are overworked,
underfed and cruelly treated;
for all wistful creatures in captivity
that beat their wings against bars;
for any that are hunted or lost or deserted
or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put 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.

Author - Albert Schweitzer

Thank you for this. I am not religious but I believe in compassion, mercy, love, and sometimes, in prayer. Thank you.

You are welcome, Rev. I think it's a lovely poem and one that I have a hanging on the wall for years.
All cultures have a god symbol and I take the one in the poem to be universal.

It's a lovely prayer, and I can see why you would want to hang it on your wall. It's heartfelt and moving, and it shows a true spirit of compassion towards all creatures. I love it/them Star quality
