~Hear our humble prayer oh God<br />for our friends the animals,<br />especially for animals who are suffering;<br />for animals that are overworked;<br />underfed and cruelly treated;<br />for all the wistful creatures in captivity <br />that beat their wings against bars;<br />for any that are hunted or lost or deserted<br />or frightened or hungry;<br />for all that must be put to death.<br />We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,<br />and for those who deal with them,<br />we ask a heart of compassion<br />and gentle hands and kindly words.<br />Make us,ourselves,to be true<br />friends to animals<br />and so to share the blessings of the Merciful.~<br />( Author-Albert Schweitzer)<br /><br />•₍^.₌.^₎╭╯<br /><br /> "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ― Anatole France<br /><br />**Avid Animal And Nature Lover,Mega Cat Person,Animal Shelter Volunteer And One Who Gets Unspeakable Joy Helping Any Animal In Need**
