Prayer for Dying Pet

Father, this little friend, my beloved pet has been such a gift in my life.
It doesn’t feel right to say goodbye, and yet I know that the end is in sight.
So please give me the love and the strength to let go and entrust my sweet one to you.
Come hold them and love them. May their heart feel at peace as I release them to you now.

There's a saying. If you want someone to love you forever, buy a dog, feed it and keep it around.

Prayer for Hope and Strength

an uplifting prayer asking for God's strength to come into a difficult circumstance:-

Comfort me with Your love O God

Comfort me with Your love O God
Wrap me up in Your strong embrace
Shelter me from the storm O Lord
Envelop me in Your tender care

By day I pour out my heartbreak to You
By night I give you my racing thoughts

In You I take refuge
In You I will not be afraid
For you hold me strong, You hold me safe

Calm my fearful heart O God
Still my anxious mind O Lord

For all my life is found in You
All my being is given to You
All my hope begins in You
