Hear Our Prayer

Prayer from church bulletin (I’m Eastern Orthodox but don’t know if this is-Didn’t save source):
“Hear our prayer , O Lord…For animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated: for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars: for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry: for all that must be put to death…and for those who deal with them we ask a kind heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.”
