Blessings for Sick, Injured or Pets in Pain

Injured Pet

Injured Pet

Beloved merciful Lord, we know that in nature you do not allow your creatures to suffer.
As you have allowed us the utmost generous gift of your creatures into our lives, we ask that we are able to keep them from suffering in pain. Bless us with understanding to know when our pet is hurting, because we as humans cannot always know.
Our pets cannot tell us with words and sometimes we are so busy in our lives that we do not see the signs of pain. Teach us to be more sensitive to our pet’s needs. Help us to find the resources to restore health and to keep them from pain. Show us the way Lord, to keep the sacred trust of dominion over your little ones. Help us to live up to that trust and to honor the life that you have blessed us with so that they do not live in pain as a result of living with human beings. We ask this blessing from the sincerity of our hearts and with humility, in Jesus name. Amen.
