    This moving prayer, called simply "Prayer for a Lost Pet," asks the help of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, and St. Anthony, the patron saint of lost things.

    Father, We ask you to help us find, our dear pet who is now lost.

    We know that you placed animals on the earth for many reasons, including companionship for man.

    We therefore ask you to help us find our lost companion, and pray that You will keep him (her) safe and protect him (her) from harm until he (she) is found.

    We join our prayers with St. Francis, St. Anthony of Padua, and all the saints, and pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

    Dear God, please send me somebody who'll care!
    I'm so tired of running and sick with despair.
    My body is aching and filled with such pain;
    And dear God I pray, as I run in the rain
    That someone will love me and give me a home,
    A warm cozy bed, and food of my own.
    My last owner left me alone in the yard...
    I watched as they moved, and God that was hard.
    So I waited a while, then went on my way
    To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
    But now, God, I'm so tired and hungry and cold;
    And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
    They've chased me with sticks and hit me with straps
    While I run the streets just looking for scraps!
    I'm not really bad, God, please help if you can,
    For I have become just a "Victim of Man!"
    I'm wormy, dear God, and I'm ridden with fleas;
    And all that I want is an Owner to please!

    I hope I'm not asking too much, Lord;
    All I want is a home of my own,
    And to know when my next meal is coming
    Instead of the scraps I get thrown.

    I've been out in the cold for so long now,
    Just coping as best as I can;
    But it's not been so long I've forgotten
    The touch of a soft caring hand.

    I look in house windows at Christmas,
    As cats doze by the fire, quite replete;
    How I'd welcome a box in the kitchen,
    And tasty food for me to eat.

    For me there was tinsel and giftwrap,
    But the fun didn't last very long.
    They put me outside with the rubbish;
    I still don't know what I did wrong.

    I really don't want to be greedy;
    At the moment I'm all skin and bone,
    So would it be too much to hope for
    That someone will give me a home?
