A Dog's Prayer

Dear Lord ~ Please watch over our humans ~ They are so weak ~
They have no claws ~ They can't run fast ~
Neither can they burrow or build a nest ~ In which they can be safe ~
They smell bad ~ Do things that aren't really intelligent ~
Have no real ability to communicate with us ~
Though we are able to figure out what they want ~

Lord Please grant us the ability to watch over our humans ~
Care for them ~ Cheer them when they're down ~
Make them laugh and smile ~ Also able to shower them with our love ~
We pray that we can bring a little joy into their otherwise mudane existance ~

Lord please let them know that when we insist on getting their attention ~
It's so we can check their emotional wellbeing ~ And boost their morale ~
When we pester them for different foods, toys etc ~
It's just so they will learn to see us in ways they hadn't
considered ~ Bringing them closer and back into the fold ~
Which they are part of ~ But keep forgetting about ~
They expect us to know what they want ~
Even though sometimes they don't know what we want ~
Some of them really try ~ And we know they love us ~
But some of them are so dumb and unfaultering ~

Lord please when we die ~
Please can you send us ahead to wherever our humna's are going to be
~ So we can pave the way for them ~ Vouch for them ~
And be there for them when they too die ~
Please allow us to continue proving to You ~ That humans are worth the effort ~
You placed these humans in dominion over us ~
But You charged us with the task of caring for them
~ And showing them Your love for for everyone of them ~

God please Bless these mortal beings ~ For they know not ~
That we ARE indeed their Guardian Angel's ~ Sent in love to task them ~
So that they may grow to be part of Your great plan ~ You and us ~
Dear God together we will bring them back into Your fold ~ You and Us ~ ~ ~
