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

Patron Saint of All Animals

 

 

Prayer To Saint Francis
For Our Pets
 

Good St. Francis, you loved all of God's creatures.
To you they were your brothers and sisters.
Help us to follow your example
of treating every living thing with kindness.
St. Francis, Patron Saint of animals,
watch over my pet
and keep my companion safe and healthy.
Amen.

 

 

Blessing Of The Animals
Lindenwald United Methodist Church
Hamilton, Ohio-1992

 

Every year in many parts of the world, there is an event called The Blessing of the Animals, held during the first week in October, to coincide with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Animals of all kinds are brought to local churches to be blessed, in honour of St. Francis, who loved all living things, and was very kind to animals.

 

 

Misty-attending the "Blessing of The Animals"

 

Reverend Beck Blessing Misty-

 

 

 

Bless The Beasts And The Children

Bless the beasts and the children
For in this world they have no voice,
They have no choice.

Bless the beasts and the children,
For the world can never be
The world they see.

Light their way
When the darkness surrounds them.
Give them love,
Let it shine all around them.

Bless the beasts and the children.
Give them shelter from a storm.
Keep them safe.
Keep them warm.
