Prayers for Bears

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.
