Prayer for the Animals

For those, O Lord,
the humble beasts,
that bear with us
the burden and the heat of the day,
and offer their guileless lives
for the well-being of humankind;
and for the wild creatures,
whom You have made
wise, strong and beautiful,
we supplicate for them
Your great tenderness of heart,
for You have promised to save
both human and beast,
and great is Your loving kindness,
O Master, Savior of the world.

~~Basil the Great
