Prayer for the Loss of a Beloved Pet

“Eternal Spirit, we bring you our grief in the loss of [name of pet] and ask for the courage to bear it. We bring you our thanks for [name of pet] who lived among us and gave us freely of his/her love. We commit our friend and companion [name of pet] into your loving hands. Give us eyes to see how your love embraces all creatures and every living thing speaks to us of your love. Amen.
