An Anglican Prayer For Animals
Let me entreat thee, O Christian reader,
By all that is good and kind and just;
Let me entreat three for God's sake,
For Christ's sake, for man's sake,
For the sake of animals--
Yea and for thine own sake.
Make it your business, esteem it your duty,
Believe it to be the ground of your hope
And know it is that which the Lord
Doeth require of thee: To do justly, to love mercy
And to walk humbly with thy God.
See that no animal of any kind,
Whether entrusted to thy care,
Or coming across thy path,
Suffer through thy neglect or abuse.
Let no help of profit,
No compliance with custom,
No fear of ridicule of the world,
Ever tempt thee to the least act of cruelty
Or injustice to any creature whatsoever.
Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain mercy.
Rev. Henry Primat
