Creator of all things-
I pray for the animals, the bugs, the creeping things, the critters that you made, love, and for which you care.
I trust that each tripping hoof, whispering antenna, and minuscule stretch is known to you.
I grieve that the missteps of human beings cause pain and suffering to our created siblings.
We not only fall short of our stewardship, but our compassion and our understanding is lacking.
Guide us in the care of creation, in understanding our connections, in the bravery to perceive the connection of all things.
Console our fellow creatures, please, while we get our act together.
