All the animals in animal shelters and all the homeless animals
The innocent and defenseless

The pet overpopulation problem in this country is catastrophic. This result is million of innocent animals suffering and dying every year. I believe prayer can solve this and awaken people to do something about this animal Holocaust.

We implore you, dear Lord, to empower our prayer for the animals. Help us awaken humans to their plight. Give comfort to those suffering and dying daily in shelters everywhere. Protect those who are without homes. Intervene for those who live in houses where there is cruelty and neglect. Save a special place by Your side for those in laboratories. Help us raise the consciousness in this country and, finally, this world that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment upon or exploit in any way. These beautiful, helpless and defenseless souls have every right to live, be loved and properly cared for. Help us to extend our circle of compassion to include all living beings, but especially Your animals. Namaste

Bless these little angels with fur and feathers, scales and shells. They are the closest thing to Heaven we will ever experience in this lifetime! They bring us joy and laughter and comfort when no one else seems to understand. Help the many animals out there fall into the hands of loving families that are dedicated to giving them the best possible lives. Please bring these little beauties to peace and justice, and help us to realize that the animals were here even before we humans were! Help us to live in harmony, and protect the animals around us!
In the name of Jesus, amen

Dear Lord, Tommy was diagnosed with malignant lymphoma just yesterday and received his first chemo treatment. Please dear Lord help him to respond to these treatments and come home with me tomorrow; let him regain his health and let him live happily with me for a few more years. I ask in Jesus' name. Amen

I ask for my prayers for tommy to be heard. Heal him if it be your will and for that I beseech you; if your will is that he come home, please let it be easy. Let him know how much I love him and have prayed and prayed for his healing. I ask these things in your name.

I pray for all of those homeless animals out there. Those who were abandoned, those who were just left to suffer and those who just happened to be born like that. I pray that they all find a loving and welcoming family and have a safe and happy life like they deserve. Shalom and G~d bless.

Thank you for those you have allowed to be a part of my life over the years.and pray many of those forgotten will find safe loving homes free from abuse.
Be with those who are dealing withpets suffering from terminal illnesses that they have loved and had as a part of their lives for so long.grant them comfort at that time when they must let go.and mend their broken hearts.
might your will be done in all things both great and thy name Amen.

Dear Lord I send a prayer to all animals that are being abused and neglected and can't save themselves.I see on TV all the time how countless dogs and cats are being starved to the bones all because their owners were too busy to give them a bowl of food some starve to the point of death and I wonder how people can be so cruel to not even feed their animals,I pray that You take care of these defenseless animals and that one day all people learn to take great care of their pets and to learn that they are one of life's many great treasures.

I pray for all those animals in appalling, cruel and desolate situations, but I also pray for marym's dog. Let her go to her pass away peacefully, and let her time left with her family be joyfully and without trouble.

Dear God, please continue to send abandoned and orphaned kittens to me to take care of and find homes for, even though a lot of them die because they are so delicate and weak and it rips my heart in two when they suffer so much...I know that You know I almost called the Humane Society after the last little one suffered and died at age 5 weeks...I felt like I was not worthy to serve them and wasn't doing them any favors...but You told me that there are so many baby kitties who need me and I am still learning how to take care of them even though I have been doing this for two years now.

I will answer Your call and I will open my heart to any kittens who need me and I won't be afraid of pain and suffering.

They are much more important than me.

God, spirit, Motor Nature: Help us to understand that the way we treat the animals in our care (which I believe includes every animal, insect and all creatures) is a sure indicator of our humanity. Albert Swhweitzer made this observation. I pray, meditate and envision a future when we can not only care for the domestic and wild creaures of our planet, but when we can, in our wealthy Western societies, understand that eating flesh is not necessary to our diets and thus end the cruel practice of confinement and slaughter.

For every homeless companion animal in our country, may someone's heart be touched in a new way, with the understanding that all life is of one spirit. May there be a home for every soul who sadly lacks one. amen.

I offer a prayer of gratitude that I have been entrusted to care for helpless and injured cats and dogs. I pray that I may overcome the sadness I feel when I think of those whom I could not save from death.

I am grateful every day that my family not only tolerates the 10 formerly "fostered" animals who have remiained in our home, but that my family shares my sense of compassion for these unwanted pets, who now make our lives rich and full.

Dear friends of animals, let us use our hearts and souls to think of and hope that dogs are not kept on chains, unattended to, abused and left to stare into space without love and companionship. If you see a dog chained outdoors for periods of time, please call your local shelters or institutions for help. At least if they are rescued by such institutions, they will then have a chance of being adopted by a loving person.
