Prayer For The Loss Of A Pet
We honor the memory of our precious pet with the warm light of this candle, sending to all our beloved pets a message of peace and love. We, as pet caregivers, bring our loss and sorrow to this place and together we ask that day by day our grief will be lessened. Each day let us continue to see how the relationship we had with our beloved pet still impacts our lives today.
We gather today joining hearts as we honor the loss of our beloved pet (pet's name) who made our days and our lives more enjoyable. Someday we hope to meet with you again (pet's name) in eternity with hugs, kisses and tears. We miss your daily presence and unending love in our daily lives. Death ends a life but our relationship still lives on in my heart and in my memory of times we spent together. You are now free running the fields where we will meet again. You are restored to complete health. You are in God's loving care forever.
Dear God, we bring our grief in the loss of (pet's name) to you and ask for the courage to move through our grief. We bring you all our thanks for (pet's name) who we were blessed to have as our precious pet. She/he gave so freely of his/her love to all those who she'd meet. We commit our beloved pet and companion into your loving hands. Surround us with your love and give us others to support us as we mourn.
Thank you sweet Jesus
for your mercy on this family
and their dearly
and for returning him/her to them.
It is in your name we pray,
Dear St. Anthony,
you are the patron of the poor and
the helper of all who seek lost articles.
Help me to find the beloved pet I have lost
so that I will be able to make better use of the time that I will gain for God's greater honor and glory. Grant your gracious aid to all people
who seek what they have lost -
especially those who seek to regain God's grace.
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.
We ask you to help us find ________,
our dear pet who is now lost.
We know that you
placed animals on the earth
for many reasons,
including companionship for man.
We therefore ask you
to help us find our lost companion,
and pray that You will keep him (her) safe
and protect him (her) from harm until he (she) is found.
We join our prayers with St. Francis,
St. Anthony of Padua, and all the saints,
and pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
