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.

    Dear Missionary Prayer Warriors,

    Our beloved 11-year-old Havanese dog, Sassy, has undergone surgery today to try to remove a large lump below her chin. The doctor took a sample of the lump and sent it to the lab to see whether the lump will be benign or malignant. The doctor believes the lump is malignant. However, we will not know with certitude until the lab results come back next week. Sassy has been provided the Tomc family with unconditional love for 11 years and we pray that Jesus and Mary will intervene in this situation and free her from all malignant cancer. You see, Missionary Prayer Warriors, Sassy in very special Havanese dog, she provides comfort and love to my father and aids him with his Alzheimers. Sassy is the third caregiver of the Tomc family along with myself and mother in our home. Without Sassy, we will lose a very special caregiver for my father. Eternal Father, you created Sassy and have blessed us with her love. Please intercede, Eternal Father, and heal Sassy from all malignant cancer, if it is Your Holy and Divine Will. Thank you for your prayers, Missionary Prayer Warriors. Amen.

    In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,

    Please pray for my foster dog Clyde. He’s a chihuahua and has a shard of bone stuck in his oesophagus. He is having endoscopic surgery to try and either pull it out or push it down into his stomach. If it can’t be removed he will have to be euthanised. I am so scared for him!

    Surgery will be after 2pm local time (GMT +9.30) which about 12.30am US Eastern time I think. Today, Saturday 19th October.

    Please pray for my cat, Majora. She is very sick and don’t know the underlying cause. Her blood tests and x-rays came out normal but she is so very weak and lethargic. She hasn’t eaten a lot and it breaks our hearts just looking into her eyes. She is on pain medication and on an appetite stimulant. She is our entire world.

    Please pray for my cat Duncan Walter Francis. He is 13 and was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago. We have him on steroids and a supplement. It doesn’t look good. I know he doesn’t feel well and I don’t want to put him down but everyone keeps saying it’s the right thing to do. I was praying for healing or at least a quiet passing in his sleep without suffering. Please pray for him. He is greatly loved. I know he is a senior cat and everything has its time but we would love to keep him longer. It would defiantly be a miracle. Thank you.

    Please keep my dog kuno is prayer. He’s been diagnosed with diabetes and now he has a severely bad rash on his hind legs and under his tail. They put him on amoxicillin but it doesn’t seem to be improving. I know that we walk by faith and not by sight and that he’s already healed. But I also believe that there is power in numbers. I’m believing for total healing and restoration in Jesus name.

    I have been reciting this and other prayers and lighting healing candles for my Reina (APBT). She was diagnosed with a tumor on her spleen that burst and was causing internal bleeding and I had to hospitalize her. Between this prayer and all of the prayers, good energy, good vibes and good karma from my friends and family she is pulling through this. I hope and pray, and humbly ask the same of you, that this tumor is not malignant and she can continue sharing her life with me for a more years to come. Thank you for this amazing prayer. The power of prayer is undeniably powerful and one of the simplest things you can do and offer that is one of the greatest gestures. Thank you and may God and St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals watch over and bless al of your pets. 🙏🏼

    Please pray for my dog Sweetheart. Her name says it all.
    She is so sweet and brings us such joy.
    She was sick Sunday the 18th when we woke up.
    Took her to the Vet and he said her Kidneys were bad.
    We have been giving her Subcutaneous Fluids.
    She is eating now and getting a little of her energy back.
    But we are taking it day by day. I wish I could take it away from her. But I know God is Watching over her.
    Prayers are appreciated and my prayers go out to your babys to and to all of you. In Jesus name.

    Thank you for praying for our special needs kitty, Faith. She’s a rescue only 4 years old and has always been tiny. God healed her from the distemper virus, a blood parasite & kept her healthy through a chronic liver problem. Despite these challenges, Faith has been healthy & strong for over 3 years. Praise God. I ask for healing prayer for her recent diagnosis of kidney disease. We are trusting God once again for his healing power for our sweet little Faith. We cast out the demonic attack on her health. We pray for wisdom for our vet in Faith’s treatment. Thank you for your intercessory prayers for Faith’s healing and restoration. In Jesus name. And thank our almighty God for His hand of healing to others’ pets posted here.

    Dear Prayer Warriors,
    My cat Mika (pronounced Meeka) came home limping and in pain after being gone for almost 36 hours. I am asking for prayers for complete healing as he is just laying in my bathroom not moving and barely lifting his head. Mika is like a seeing eye cat for my little blind Yorkie. He guards and guides her when she goes in the yard. He is such a love and it hurts so much to see him this way. I am afraid to even move him to take him to the vet.
    Thank you so much!

      Cindi he probably needs an Antibiotic. If you can’t afford the vet, there is a similar product on Amazon cakes Vibactra by Amber Technology. Read their reviews. Many blessings.
