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.

    O Lord Jesus, I beg of you to heal my female dog Louie,
    I raise her before you Lord to take care of and heal her with your perfect love and for you to restore her to the perfect state as you created her to be,

    She had a major operation 9 years ago from being hit by a car due to my negligence and has been reasonably well with medication since, last night I picked her up awkwardly and twisted her pelvis area causing her to now be in some pain.
    I will take her to the vets but please take her pain and banish any evil forces or strong holds that try to stop you from being with her.

    I pray that you are with her now comforting her farther.

    Please pray for my sweet dog Shaggy. Shaggy was found to have a bacteria in his nose in September and all the medications given to him were ineffective. However, from my own research and after consulting other vets I found out that they were the wrong medicines. We are now doing another test to establish whether the bacteria is still there so that we can give him the right medicine this time.

    My prayer is that this bacteria is the only issue afflicting shaggy and that there is no cancer involved. The vet said that whatever is blocking Shaggy’s nose might be cancerous, but she did agree that, bacteria left to go out of hand, can also cause blockage. Please also pray that if and when we have to give Shaggy new medications that they are the right ones for him. Please pray that’s first line antibiotics will be effective so that we may not have to move to the stronger ones. Also, given the effects antibiotics have on the gut, and the fact that shaggy has already been on so many antibiotics, please pray that any drug administered now will not cause damage to his gastrointestinal tract or his kidneys.

    Finally, my prayer is that Shaggy will not have to go under the knife. when I was praying earlier today I felt strongly that my prayer should be “no surgery.”

    I will keep you updated on the findings of the lab and Shaggy’s improvement. Thanks so much.

      Dear God I ask if you can heal my cat Demitri. I don’t know what he has. I couldn’t afford the vet’s test’s and I’m very saddened to think I might lose my baby because of money and not being able to find out what’s wrong with him. I tried to apply for scratchpay and some other credit card to do monthly payments, but was denied on both forms, for I don’t have credit. Please help Demitri get better and stronger. He’s not his usual self. He’s losing weight and not eating right. He lays all day and looks sad. Occasionally he’ll have little tears in his eyes. The vet told me his temperature was higher than normal and if not seen properly he might die! I leave this in your hands! For I don’t have the money and can now only rely on your divine power. Heal Demitri if it is your will lord. You know I’m pregnant and I would love for Demitri to meet my baby. Please don’t take him away from me! I love my cat.

    I believe our cat”Tiger” is about to me the Lord. He is not eating or drinking for two days now. I am a minister and would ask if you would ask the Lord that Tiger WILL NOT suffer! I know this sounds mean, but I am praying that he will pass in his sleep, since we don’t have much money. I don’t want him to suffer. If he is still with us tomorrow, I will take him to the vet .
    God Bless you

      Hello Cindy, I want to encourage you. My dog also had kidney disease, and he was on infusion therapy every month. But every day when I was with him at veterinary we were praying with my family and proclaimed that he is healed in Jesus name, we covered the infusion with Jesus blood, and abolished kidney disease. Every day I proclaim that God recover his kidneys and that his kidneys working much better than he was young. It all started 2 years ago. Now my dog is really much more better. His kidneys working very good, sometimes his Urea was higher but as Vet said he is very well stabilized. We still proclaim and believe about his perfect healing because its for every Gods creature. Be also carefull with what you are feeding your dog, because not every food is for dogs. You can look at internet what food is good for your dog to not load dogs kidneys. But I pray my heavenly father let He blessed your dog with supernatural healing and let your dog will live a very very long life at a full healthiness. God bless you!
