Prayer For Healing A Sick Pet

Pinterest WhatsApp

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 loved your article but the Bible clearly states that all flesh has souls. That would include all animals. Telling people that animals have not soul serves for some to dismiss the misery and pain caused to animals by society. And It’s untrue.

      Please reread what is written. Animals do not “have a soul that needs to be saved”. I did not say they don’t have a soul. You cannot preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to an animal for it to receive Christ as Savior. There are no Christian pets. I hope this helps to clarify it. They automatically go to heaven, unlike humans with free will and choice, because they don’t have a soul that needs to confess Jesus as Lord.

    Hello and much LOVE from God our Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ name through the power of The Holy Spirit of truth.

    My precious sixteen year old cat named Midnite just fell ill with what looks to be an urinary tract infection commonly triggered by a thyroid disease. Please do hold up Midnite in prayer for yes-a miraculous healing that she may recover completely and be settled and happy.

    As well, I need help in arranging and setting up my apartment accordingly which has been long over due which is important so that I can provide areas for Midnite to roam freely, look and enjoy the scenery outside and also that all my visitors would be blessed as well! In Yeshua,
    Brother J.P. 💖

    I read this with tears streaming down my face. Thank you for writing this. It gave me so much clarification. Being reminded that GOD loves them too, that they do go to Heaven and that HE will heal them. Right now I need a healing prayer for Gracie and Meadow, I need prayer for my faith to be strengthened that GOD is moving for us and for healing, grieving the passing of 3 of my fur babies, lost them last year, and it’s been heartbreaking. Please also pray for my family. Thank you. God bless in JESUS NAME.

    I completely understand. It is affecting my nerves and has me in tears at times. I believe, and accept, the healing that God has for my Oreo but I feel that when I get upset my faith is small. I remind myself that it is satan who makes me question my faith. God knows that we are human and so imperfect. I know He answers prayers in His time but I admittedly get impatient because I don’t want to see her suffer and I feel so helpless just waiting but I know His word says that we are to wait on the Lord. Prayers for you, me, Rosie and Oreo. May God sustain us and let us not waiver in our faith.

    Prayers please for my cat, Oreo. She will be 18 in December and in June developed a small lump on the right side of her face which at first was thought to be an abscessed tooth but was found to be a mass. It happened pretty quickly. She gets very stressed at the Vets so I didn’t feel like I could put her through testing, treatments, or a surgery in which I was told she would lose half of her face. The mass seemed to be very slow growing at first but over the past few days it has gotten bigger and her eye is looking bad from what appears to be the mass pushing into it. I puree all of her food as it is getting harder for her to eat. I have asked God to heal her, and although I don’t want to lose her, that when it is her time He will let her go naturally and disease-free – not due to this deforming mass and to suffer and be in pain. She still wants to get in my lap and be petted and brushed. I don’t feel like it is fair to her to put her down when she is still so loving and she wants to eat, and tries to eat and waits for her food but I can’t take the thought of her passing from this disease or suffering from its effects, like starving, especially when she tries her best to eat. I believe in the divine healing power of my Savior and I not only want Oreo to be healed and to be whole, but I want to take her into that vet’s office, without that mass being present, and to testify and witness to them that it is because of God’s healing power. I pray for all of the beloved pets mentioned here. We can all understand what each other is going through. With God, all things are possible – even for them.
