I decided to make a thread on prayers for particular things. Here's one I wrote to people with pets or love for animals: To those who are in the Lord: I understand you have a great care and affinity for God's creatures. Remember the comparison of Our Lord as Shepherd and of ourselves as the flock. May He use the animals within your care to teach you the principles of love, mercy and kindness, as he has done for us through his Son, and as it is likewise between the body of Christ. Lord God, deliver this message of encouragement to the faithful. Amen. Verses to contemplate: Proverbs 12:10 - "A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel." Proverbs 27:23 - "Know the state of your flocks, and put your heart into caring for your herds."
