Prayer for pets #1

Recently, a friend asked me to say a prayer that she would find her lost dog. That got me to thinking about the spiritual place that animals hold in our lives. My research led me to eight specific prayers that I am going to pass to you over the next two weeks. I hope these prayers lead you to inner peace as you struggle with sickness, loss and memory of your beloved pet.

A Pet Blessing

Dearest God, Heavenly Father
maker of all living creatures,
we ask you to bless (name of pet),
who brings so much joy into our lives.
By the power of Your love,
enable him (her) to live according to your plan.
May we always praise You for all Your beauty in creation.
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
Blessed are You, God, in all Your creatures!
