Prayer for sick pet

(a blessing for your animals protection and restoration to health)

I lay before you my prayers for this special animal.
They are so beautiful, cherished and important to me.
Please bring blessing upon them.
Cover their bodies with healing,
And their hearts with peace.
Help me to care for them,
To have wisdom and love at every moment.

In Jesus name,

Prayer for Loss of a Pet

(suitable for saying in a memorial ceremony)

Dear Lord,

The balance between life and death is so fine. I feel so desperately sad to have lost my loving companion. There is such beauty in the life, eyes and soul of an animal.

Please comfort me with the promise of eternal life. Come give me a vision of the freedom that they now enjoy and fill my mind with hope. May my heart rest in treasured memories and be thankful for all the happiness and love that they have given me.
