Prayer for pets who died
Dear Lord, as I grieve the loss of my pet
My constant companion, my wonderful friend
Give me sweet glimpses of heavenly grace
Of life in renewal and the wonder you’ve made.
Comfort my heart with deep memories
Of intimate bonds of dwelling with them.
Calm all my thoughts, they are safe in your arms,
Eternity has room for their precious hearts.
Help me to give thanks for the joy that they’ve been
Soften my sadness, come stay close to me.
Blessed are you, Lord God, for all living creatures you have made.
You keep them in your care and not one of them is lost without you knowing.
They glorify you, each in its own way, and speak to us of your beauty and love.
Bless them and keep them from harm.
They unquestionably accept their place in the rhythm of your creation.
May we respect them and cherish them for they are your gift to us;
through them may we come to know you better and praise you, their Creator.
Blessed be the love and joy that they bring to us. Amen.
