Dear Sentinel

From children and young people

Dear Sentinel,

Often when I pray, I find I pray for people, I pray for my mum, my dad, my sister, myself—and sometimes for my friends. But after an experience that happened to me I realized you can pray for animals as well. Sometimes animals may need you to pray for them, as I discovered.

It was a warm day and I was playing outside with my sister. My dad was doing the gardening. Suddenly, he called us over and showed us a bird lying in the flower bed. It wasn't moving. Something was wrong.
