Prayer For Animals
God Our Heavenly Father, You created the world to
serve humanity's needs and to lead them to You.
By our own fault we have lost the beautiful relationship
which we once had with all your creation.
Help us to see that by restoring our relationship
with You we will also restore it with all Your creation.
Give us the grace to see all animals as gifts from You
and to treat them with respect for they are Your creation.
We pray for all animals who are suffering as a result of our
neglect. May the order You originally established be once
again restored to the whole world through the intercession
of the Glorious Virgin Mary, the prayers of St.Francis and
the merits of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ Who lives
and reigns with You now and forever.
Saint Francis of Assisi
