Dogs Prayer

Prayer of a Stray

Dear God please send me somebody who’ll care!
I’m tried of running, I’m sick with despair.

My body is aching; it’s so racked with pain,
and dear God I pray as I run in the rain.

That someone will love me and give me a home.
A warm cosy bed and a big juicy bone.

My last owner tied me all day in the yard
sometimes with no water and God that was hard!

So I chewed my leash God and I ran away
to rummage in garbage and live as a stray.

But now God I’m 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 stones
while I run the streets just looking for bones!

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!

If you find one for me God, I’ll try to be good
And I won’t chew their shoes, but I’ll do as I should.

I’ll love them, protect them and try to obey
when they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay!

I don’t think I’ll make it too long on my own
Cause I’m getting so weak and I’m so all alone.

Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I’m so afraid God that I’m going to die!

And I’ve got so much love and devotion to give
that I should be given a new chance to live.

So dear God please, please answer my prayer and
Send me someone who will really care …
That is, dear God, if you’re really there!
