Prayer For A Dead Pet Cat
Thank you for the gift of pets. You blessed us with the existence of this dog in our hearts and home for 10 years. You brought this dog to us; You brought life, joy, love, companionship, laughter, and comfort to us through this dog. He loved us unconditionally, and You loved us unconditionally through this pet. Thank you for this experience, this life we had together. Thank You for giving us this gift and blessing. It was a short life, but it was deep.
We lift our beloved pet to You now. We lift her spirit, her heart and soul and dear little body to You. We know You love this pet dearly, and You are watching over us now. We know You care, and Your heart aches just as ours do. We pray for the loss of our pet, and we give You our grief and pain. We bow before you in humble adoration, and we lift our broken hearts to You.
We trust You with a childlike faith, Father, and we know our pet is safe in Your arms. We love you with innocent hearts, and we know You will take good care of our pets now and forevermore.
Until we meet again, our pets rest safely in Your arms and our hearts.
Father in Heaven,
Bring comfort and healing to those who are mourning the deaths of their beloved pets. You know their pain, for you lost your own beloved son. You know the depth of sadness and grief your children feel when they lose a dog or cat who was so dear, near, and special to them. You know the emptiness of a home that no longer has that furry little (or big!) creature; you know the emptiness of a heart that longs for the comforting touch of a beloved cat or dog.
I thank you for the gift of our pets, for the love these creatures give us, for the life that they offer, and for the chance to love them like we love nothing and nobody else on earth.
I pray for comfort, peace, and healing as we let go of the cats and dogs that we loved so dearly.
May you find peace, hope and healing in the Father's warm embrace. May you feel the light of the Holy Spirit and the faith of Jesus Christ. May you accept the loss of your dog or cat as part of the natural cycle of life and death. May you hold on to the beautiful memories with clarity and joy, and let the grief, guilt and pain pass through you without leaving dark shadows. And here may you find comforting prayers, encouragements, and suggestions for saying goodbye after the loss of a pet. Amen.
O Lord our God, we come before You this day in sadness. (Pet's name), who brought us so much joy in life, has now died. (His/Her) happy times in our family's embrace have come to an end. We miss (pet's name) already.
Help us, O God, to remember the good times with (pet's name). Remind us to rejoice in the happy times (he/she) brought to our home. Let us be thankful for the good life we were blessed to give to (him/her).
We are grateful to You, God, for creating (pet's name), for entrusting (him/her) to our care, and for sustaining (him/her) in our love for a measure of time. We understand that all that lives must die. We knew that this day would come. And yet, O God, we would have wanted one more day of play, one more evening of love with (pet's name).
O God, as we have taken care of (pet's name) in life, we ask that You watch over (him/her) in death. You entrusted (pet's name) to our care; now, we give (him/her) back to You. May (pet's name) find a happy new home in Your loving embrace.
As we remember (pet's name), may we love each other more dearly. May we care for all Your creatures, for every living thing, as we protected the blessed life of (pet's name). May (his/her) memory bless our lives with love and caring forever. Amen.
Mother Earth, we return to you
the body of one of your children.
Her spirit will return to her ancestors,
and she will continue to live in our memories.
We are thankful that we were able
to share our lives with her,
and give her to your loving arms.
O God, every animal, in every forest, field, and home, belongs to you, and is under your loving care. May your blessing be upon this cat/dog and in your steadfast kindness. Keep (him, her) safe from all harm. We pray that you would show forth your eternal love and mercy, in the companionship and friendship that this cat/dog provides. Amen.
Lord, (cat's name) is such a gentle soul; please welcome him into your arms and onto your lap. I pray that his transition is peaceful and he feels my love for him as he goes. Thank you for allowing me the time with (cat's name) that I had - he was such a blessing to me.
You have crossed over now,
into the spirit realm.
May you walk with Bast,
and I will see you again some day.
