"A Liturgy For Brushing Your Dog's Teeth"

Holy God,

What an amazing thing

That just as I brush my own teeth twice a day,

I do the same for my dog.

In some ways, O God,

You have made me and my dog

So similar.

We are both creatures

Who need regular care.

And yet, just as my dog

Cannot brush his own teeth

And depends on me in that regard,

So too do I depend on you

To do the hard work

Of brushing away my sin.

God, thank you for doing that.
