Prayer For A Dying Cat
A Franciscan Blessing for Our Animal Friends
Prayer for My Pet
In Your infinite wisdom, Lord God,
when You created the Universe
You blessed us with all living creatures.
We especially thank You for giving us our pets
who are our friends and who bring us so much joy in life.
Their presence very often helps us get through trying times.
Kindly bless my pet.
May my pet continue giving me joy and remind me of Your power.
May we realize that as our pets
trust us to take care of them, so we should trust You to take care of us,
and in taking care of them we share in Your love for all Your creatures.
Enlighten our minds to preserve all endangered species
so that we may continue to appreciate all Your creatures.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Francis and St. Anthony, please come promptly to the aid of this
precious cat, and those who love her so, and enable her to find her
way back home, having suffered no ill effects from her separation
from her family.
Thank you sweet Jesus for your mercy on this family and their dearly
loved cat, and for restoring her to them.
It is in your name we pray,
May God, who heals the sick, defends the vulnerable, cares for the poor, and liberates all creation from suffering and injustice, bring us all to that peaceable kingdom when all creatures shall live in harmony and all suffering shall be transformed into joy.
Healing and transforming God, your love knows no boundaries, and in your sight every life is precious; look with compassion on (pet's name), and make us your agents of healing in a broken world.
You created all things for your glory
And made us stewards of this creature.
If it is your will,
restore (pet's name)
to health and strength.
Blessed are you, Lord God,
And holy is your name for ever and ever.
Merciful Lord, touch (pet's name) with Your gentle hand of healing and comfort. We pray that You would supernaturally deliver her of her symptoms of (health issue) and healing the underlying cause (health issue). We also pray that You would use veterinarians, medicines, and natural means to bring her once more to good health. Grant us wisdom and compassion as we care for her as Your stewards. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Lord, pets were one of your greatest creations. (Pet name) brought me so joy and love and I praise you for your wisdom in creating animals that enjoy the company of people. Thank you for the blessing of (pet name). May he go peacefully into heaven and await my eventual arrival. Please let me see (pet name) again someday at the Rainbow Bridge.
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.
