No amount of "justice" will undo the wrong that has been done to this dear animal of Yours. But bring correction, discipline, and cause restitution to be made in those situations where it’s genuinely appropriate and worthwhile.
Show this animal on his (or her) level of understanding all that You’ve prepared for him (or her) since ancient times. Reclaim this dear one from all fear and injury. Give them something – anything – that You alone know would gladden their heart.
Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon this animal in comforting dreams and in bodily healing, renewal, and miraculous restoration. Restore playfulness to them and a sense of wonder about the world around them.
Mend all that’s broken in this animal’s mind and body. Fill him (or her) with peace and forgiveness that surpasses all understanding, in Jesus’ Name.
