Prayer For A Pet

Merciful God,
you created all things for your glory
and have graciously allowed us this animal to love.
Please look kindly on him and restore him to health and strength.
Please deliver her from fear and pain,
and grant us wisdom in our care for her,
in the name of Jesus, amen.

Blessed are you, Lord God,
who made every living thing with which the water teems,
and every winged bird,
the livestock,
the creatures that move along the ground,
and the wild animals,
and called it all good.
Thank you for this animal,
for its life that comes from you,
and for the love and joy it brings.
Please bless this creature
and let our loving care for him/her be a reflection of your loving nature.
We praise you for all your beauty in creation, and especially for this expression of your love.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.

Jesus, it seems this is the time for (pet's name) to leave this world and to enter Your heavenly garden. Mercifully remove all suffering. Make the transition to death swift and full of Your peace. Usher her into Your heavenly kingdom gently and graciously. We thank You for giving her to us to share our pilgrimage here, and we look forward to being reunited with her there. (pet's name), we love you, and we release you into your Creator's eternal hand. Go in peace.

Heavenly Father, You have appointed a time for every living thing to be born and a time for every living thing to die. If this is the time for (pet's name) life to end here on earth, we pray You grant us the wisdom to recognize it and the grace to accept it. We place her life into Your hands, trusting in Your eternal mercy to grant her a peaceful end here and a gracious entrance into Your heavenly garden. In Jesus' name.

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.

O Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior, Physician of all living things, who through thy love and compassion doth heal all manner of sickness and affliction: do thou O Lord visit this pet (pet's name) of his (her) suffering and heal him (her) of every sickness and affliction. Also grant to me patience and acceptance of whatever you may deem worthy for this humble pet. Be with my pet in this time of need and help him (her) to be comforted by our care and love.

Heavenly Father, Please help us in our time of need, You have made us stewards of (name of pet). If it is Your will, please restore him (her) to health and strength. I pray too for other animals in need. May they be treated with the care and respect deserving of all Your creation. Blessed are You Lord God, and holy is Your name for ever and ever.

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.
