#40WordPrayer on ANIMALS

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your judgments are like the great deep;
you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.
— Psalm 36:6

God, we live as if human life is the only life.

Just as you have cared for humans and animals,

let humanity do the same.

Let us tend to all creatures: the cute, the cuddly,

the majestic, and the peculiar.

For you have created us all.

Amen.

Bruce Reyes-Chow

Cover 40 Days, 40 Prayers, 40 Words: Lenten Reflections for Everyday Life — Bruce Reyes-ChowReflection Excerpt . . .

Our family has a saying whenever we see a creature that falls to the bottom of the cute basket: “It is still a creature of God.” While we say this mostly to remind us that the creepy crawlies of the world are important, it does act as a reminder that God cares for all creatures of the earth, and we should as well.
