Dear God,

We Pray for the animals that run wild:

for their graceful, daring, desperate

dash to survive.

Help us to be gentle with their fear,

respectful of their fierceness,

and wise enough to leave them a place

to live both wild and free.

-from “A Child’s First Book of Prayers” by Lois Rock and Alison Jay
