Prayer For Healing A Sick Pet

Pinterest Google+

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.

    I am standing in agreement with everyone who needs prayers for their loved animal. Please keep Chachi my cat In prayer. He has been to the vet twice and is now on prescription food. He is scratching his face and ears and he itches all over. He has torn his skin bad enough to bleed. He is sad and very confused. He cries to me to help him.
    Chachi has always been verbal . I thank you all for the prayers. I thank the Heavenly Father for all he does.

      David, I would encourage you to take your sweet friend to a vet dermatologist, I did and he knew within 5 minutes doing a swab culture of her skin…: twice on antibiotic shots the skin condition was healed!!! my regular vet did not know and was prescribing ointment that was making it worse…..
      google vet dermatologists in your area… it’s worth it and not anymore expensive!!!!
      will pray for you to find the help and that God would guide you and heal her.

    Please pray for our dear kitty Sasha. He has been feeling poorly for a few weeks. I took him to the vet twice in two weeks but we have no answers for his behavior and he doesn’t seem any better. My faith is very weak right now because I lost my other cat in February and a dog in Nov. This is very painful and I have weak faith. I need others to pray for him too! 🙁

    Lord Jesus, I come before You now with trust and faith that You will heal my cat and best friend, Boswell – who is almost 17 years old and showing signs of kidney failure. Boswell was sent to me by You and our Heavenly Father to keep me company and to offer me unconditional love much like You do. Should Your will decide to take Boswell from this Earth and bring him to Heaven to be with You, our Father, and all Your angels, I simply ask that his suffering be none and his welcome to Heaven be with great celebration as he will be in Your holy presence for all eternity ! Thank you Lord for one of the most precious of blessings – Boswell – and I ask that he be either healed completely or brought before you without pain or suffering on earth. Thank you Lord Jesus for hearing my prayer and taking upon your shoulders this burden which I can not bear. Amen, and praise Your name!

    Please, help me pray for my 3 months old puppy Dashoy, he frequently vomits and haven’t eaten any food for 4 days already. I’m quite hopeless right now because the place from which I was raised doesn’t even have a single vet clinic or an animal hospital that might help my sicked pet. Lord, I entrust the fate of my dog to you now, may you be merciful to my pet despite that I am a sinner.

    Lord Jesus, I lift my dog Sandy up to you. I ask for you to heal her heart, give her comfort with her aching legs, give her energy to get in short periods of exercise. Help relieve her fear of riding in the car so I can get her to the vet. Thank you for the years you have blessed me with her company. Help her heal so she can enjoy a few more good years. Lord I trust you to completely heal Sandy.

    This is a nice page to those in need. Thank you!
    I believe in balance when feeling love for an animal and for a human being, thus while the Bible would not mention further on this equality, I follow a different perspective and have a different understanding of this points.
    Finally, I ask Him to help recover my pet’s health and my family’s peace with his recovery. Amen!
