If you would like to pray for wildlife and endangered animals but are not sure what to pray for I encourage you to simply open your heart and lift up your concerns to God. You can pray for the protection and preservation of endangered species, and for the wisdom and compassion of those in positions of power to make decisions that honor and protect the environment.
Pray for the people and organizations who are working tirelessly to save and care for endangered animals, and for the education and awareness of others about the importance of conservation. Remember that God cares deeply for all of His creation, and that your prayers can make a difference in the world.
Below you will find a prayer for wildlife to get started, some verses from the Bible about protecting His creation, and additional resources for wildlife conservation.
As I look around at the world you have created, I am filled with awe and wonder at the diversity of life you have placed on this planet. From the smallest insect to the largest mammal, every creature has a place in your grand design, and I am grateful for the beauty and richness that they bring to our world.
But Lord, I am also aware that many of these creatures are in danger. Their habitats are being destroyed by deforestation, and their lives are threatened by the changes that are happening to our planet as a result of climate change. I pray for the protection of these animals and their habitats. I pray for the wisdom and compassion to make the changes we need to make to protect their homes.
Lord, I know that these creatures are not just important to us, but they are also important to you. You have created each one with care and intention, and you have given us the responsibility to care for them as stewards of your creation. Help us to be faithful in this task, and to act with wisdom, kindness, and love towards all of your creatures.
I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, who taught us to love and care for all of your creation.
There are several verses in the Bible that speak about animals and our responsibility to care for them. Here are a few:
"The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel."
The godly, who are guided by a moral compass and a sense of compassion, will care for their animals, while the wicked, who lack such qualities, will be cruel to them.
"He sends springs into the valleys that flow between the mountains. They give water to all the animals in the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches. He waters the mountains from his heavenly reservoirs; the earth is satisfied and refreshed by the streams from his supply. He makes grass grow for the livestock and plants for people to use. He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the service of man, that he may bring forth food from the earth... O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions—This great and wide sea, In which are innumerable teeming things, Living things both small and great."
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?"
These verses remind us of our responsibility as humans to care for and protect the animals and nature that God has created.
