Prayer For Healing A Sick Pet

Some of you may read this title and think “A prayer for healing a sick pet, really?”


The truth we know that in most countries animals are kept outside of the house.  So I would imagine some of you would not think of praying for a sick pet.  Especially when you think of all the people that you know that need prayer.  I’m hoping that by the time you read this article, you will change your mind about this.

You see, to many people their pet is much like a member of the family.  This is their baby.

I am also convinced that dogs were put on this earth to teach us how to love unconditionally.

The first time someone asked me to pray for their sick dog it did take me by surprise but since I told her I would do it I went with the request to God and asked what was His perspective on praying for a dog or a cat.

These are the thoughts that came to me:

1. If pets weren’t important to God then He never would have commanded Noah to take two of each type and put them on the ark when He was about to destroy the earth with a flood. (Genesis 7:16).  Let’s face it He wouldn’t have created them in the first place!

2. Isaiah 65 which is the picture of the new heaven and the new earth has the wolf and the lamb eating together while lions will eat straw.  Even a snake is mentioned! This is the picture and harmony among all animals on the new earth.

3.  Remember that man was the one that brought sickness and death to the earth through sin.  This means that animals, much like man, was created to live forever.  Even the plant life would live forever because there would be no death. Can you imagine your garden blooming year round and nothing dying? We are the ones responsible for animals getting sick.

4.  Nowhere in the bible does it say that your pet hamster, pigs or pet fish has a soul that needs to be saved. While pets are important to God, they are not to be viewed above humans.  You shouldn’t love your animals more than you love a fellow human being.  We have souls that need to be saved and animals do not. The bible clearly shows us that God puts a greater love on humans and so should you. Matthew 6:26 (NIV) “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

5.  Revelation 19 has Jesus coming back on a white horse.  Through this we know that animals are in heaven.

So now that we have established that pets are important to God and that they are in heaven, let’s talk about the process of healing.

Are you wondering: Can prayer heal the sick animal?

Here are some scriptures to consider before praying for your animals

Proverbs 12:10 (NIV) “The righteous care for the needs of their animals,but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.”

Psalm 145:9 (NIV) “The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made.”

Exodus 23:12 (NIV) “Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and the foreigner living among you may be refreshed.”

The sabbath rest was not only intended for you but for your animals as well.  Since we have dominion over animals we should be the ones enforcing the rest.

What does the bible say about healing?

Jesus was known in the Bible as the great healer and there are many healing prayer scriptures that you will find speaking of those that he healed. Do you know the story of the woman who had the “issue of blood”? It was her faith that gave her the strength to press on through the crowds until she got to Jesus. She was praying for healing and her faith was so strong that she knew that just by the simple act of touching the hem of his garment she could get that healing that she was praying for. It was the full belief that she had in the healing power of Jesus that caused her to do what she did – in this case she did not even ask! She just touched a piece of Jesus and she was made whole because she believed.

Your sick pet cannot ask either but you know what they need so you can make supplication for them.  Activate your faith and belief in the healing power of Jesus and ask for them.

Can you recall a place in the Bible where Jesus refused to grant the request of a prayer for healing? No, there is no record of that.  Ask God to strengthen your faith so you can believe for healing for your sick animal.

Here is a little prayer for healing your sick pet

Lord I know that I am your child and as such you hold me higher than the angels and the animals that you have created. Even so, pets are all important to you whether it is a dog, cat, lizard, snake, hamster, pig, a fish whatever it may be, you created it. Lord, I thank you for your awesomeness and power, for providing for my every need and the needs of my animal. So, Lord, I come to you now praying for healing for my sick pet, ________. I am in need of your help. You know the exact illness that is afflicting my pet even though he/she cannot speak; I trust your divine guidance in_________life. Help them Lord; deliver _________ from any pain and suffering. Grant ___________ your peace as I place him/her in your capable hands. I ask for healing, I ask for strength, I ask O Lord that your perfect will be accomplish in this pet’s life for your glory, in Jesus name. Amen

If this prayer has blessed you and your animal, please share it with others.

    Please say a prayer for my sweet tabby cat, Nicky, as we just learned he has oral cancer. Even though we’ve been blessed with best, sweetest cat ever for the past 17 years, his time now is short. I pray that he will be comfortable and content, and will let me know when he must rest. My heart is already broken, but I am thankful for every precious minute that I can have with him before helping him over the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you God and all for your caring hearts.

    Jesus, please save my little daughter, Pearl. It has just been 6 months since I adopted her and now she’s suffering from a serious illness of canine distemper. She’s going through so much at such an young age. She’s my angel, my happiness, my everything. I have never been loved so purely. She’s not just a pet but my first born, my own child. :’) I cannot imagine my life without her. Please help my daughter, o lord. I’m leaving her life in your hands. Please heal her, help her to survive this fatal disease. Please lord. Please. I’m praying to you, I’m begging for you to save her. She’s the most precious living thing to me. Please help her recover. Please bless her with a long life o lord. Don’t let her die, don’t let this disease take her away from me. Please. :’)

    Dear Lord, Thank you for the lives of our furry children Kaia and Cooper. I have learned that dogs are your amazing gifts that instruct our hearts with their unconditional love and spirit Even in adversity. Lord, I lift up your sweet and innocent creation, our beautiful golden Kaia, as I ask for her healing from lymphoma. She is so calm as we pray over her and we feel the love that is flowing between us. It amazes me. She continues to be a gift in Illness as my petition for her healing turns me to you in faithful prayer for her and so for many others throughout the day. I know that you love and care for all your creation, and I am thankful for the power of your Holy Spirit who supports and guides us in our prayers for this living reflection of your love.
    I will add the names of those whose petitions are also listed here as we call upon the Lord to answer our sincere prayers for our precious pets…in Jesus name.

    Dear Heavenly Father, I than you for the seven wonderful year’s I got to spend with Jasmine. You allowed me to rescue her at birth and raise her to a loving, caring, unconditional friend. Now as her life comes to end due to cancer I pray that I have Mae her short life a full and happy one. She never wants for anything and gave nothing but love and companionship in return. May she rest in peace on the lap of one of Your angels until it is time for us to be together again. I know that You will restore her to her full vital self again and when we see each other at Rainbow Bridge the joy of being reunited with her will overwhelm my heart.
    Care for her and keep her at peace until we are reunited. Bess You again Lord for granting me the best friend I could have ever had. In Your Name I give thanks. I as for nothing for myself other than to know that Jasmine is in Your loving arms safe from pain and happy again. Amen!
