A PRAYER FOR TIGER

by Sandra Fratt

RECEIVE OUR GOD, the return of your wondrous creation, Tiger.
He has been brave in the face of adversity.

GRANT me a measure of consolation and peace in knowing
that I have fulfilled my responsibility to him.

IN MY GRIEF, help me to remember and appreciate
that his loving devotion was Your gift to me,
and to be thankful for the time I shared his life.

LET YOUR LIGHT warm his soft coat,
Your love fill his brave heart.

ALLOW him to frisk freely and without pain
in Your glorious realm until we meet again.
