 Rescue Prayer
 
 Now I lay me down to rest
 I pray my soul can stand this test
 Of watching critters lose their homes
 While owners gripe and cry and moan
 
 I long for strength of spirit that
 They'll find a loving home again
 Where they will know a loving heart
 I can't do much, but it's a start..
 
 And spare me from the owner's pleas
 About the baby's allergies
 Or how they're moving out of state
 Or spitefulness 'tween cat and mate
 
 Please keep me sane while dealing with
 The woman who bought as a gift
 A wriggling tiny ball of fluff
 That now is playing way too rough
 
 Remind me I should bite my lip
 When confronted with "he grew too quick"
 "I didn't know he'd get so large"
 "He seems to think that he's in charge"
 
 Protect my heart when I hear them say
 "I think we'll breed our dog one day"
 Sometimes I think it'll break in two;
 Each day brings trials harsh and new
 
 And if I die before I wake
 I pray one hopeless soul you'll take
 My tears are gone, my faith is bare
 Lord, please hear my rescue prayer.
