Prayer For Sick Dog

Not sure what to use as a Prayer for Sick Dog?

There is a reason why dogs are famously called a man’s best friend. It is arguable that dogs are one of the best animals, and make the sweetest companions for pets.

They’re loyal, loving, usually filled with energy, and playful.

For many families, their dogs have become an integral part of their lives and some people even consider themselves dog moms (no judgment here).

Because our dogs hold such a special place in our hearts, it can make it so much harder when your dog becomes sick.

If your dog is sick, and you are worried about their health, and hoping to see their speedy recovery, I encourage you to take some time to pray for them.

I hope that these prayers will not only be helpful, but give you comfort as you bring your beloved furry friend before God’s healing hands. 

Prayer For Sick Dog

Prayer for Injured Dog 

It can be tough to see your dog injured. They may be restricted and not able to do what they could do before.

This can be both hard for you, and for your dog, as they need time to recover and take it easy.

If you have a pet who has been injured in any way, you can pray for them and ask God to restore them back to health and to grant them a full recovery. 

Heavenly Father,

Thank You so much for blessing us with our beloved dog.

We are thankful for all the joy that we have been able to share with him/her, and it truly pains us to see him/her injured and in pain.

When You made dogs, you knew that we would be so blessed by their existence.

Thank You for making our dog, and allowing them to be a part of our lives. 

I know You have not only made them, but that You are able to heal them from this injury.

I ask that You would please allow for them to recover fully, and to return to their normal self.

I ask that You would please ease any pain that they are feeling, and comfort them during this difficult and painful time.

Please help me trust in You for a full recovery, and lead me in any way that can be helpful toward their health.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen. 

Prayer for Healing Your Sick Dog

The signs that your dog is sick can be very obvious. Sometimes it’s learning about what a dog side eye could mean.

They may not be their joyful, active self, and many times you are able to see the toll it is taking on them.

Though this can be a very sad time, and you may not be able to help them feel better immediately, you can ask God to heal them through prayer.

I am so thankful for my sweet dog today, and I am torn to see him/her struggling with sickness.

I know that You have made and cared for the precious animals, and You have created a special bond between dogs and mankind.

Thank You that I get to experience that bond and that my love and care has grown even more because of this precious animal. 

Right now he/she is not feeling like themselves at all, and has been sick.

I don’t know how much pain he/she is in, but I can’t imagine that it is a pleasant feeling.

So, I ask that You would be so gracious as to reach out Your healing hand over my dog today.

Please touch any place that is causing complications, and help them to feel better.

Please help them to make a full recovery, and for all the pain to go away.

In Jesus’ name, amen. 

Prayer for Guidance in Dog’s Health 

When you start noticing that your doing isn’t doing so well, it can be hard to figure out what exactly is wrong with them.

Sometimes a quick google search can be helpful, but other times a visit to the vet is necessary.

There are times when neither of those methods are helping, and your dog just doesn’t seem to be getting better.

In that case, you can ask God to provide guidance and wisdom concerning your dog’s health, and to find the necessary solution.

I am thankful for another day with my precious dog.

Sometimes it’s easy to take the good days for granted, and that is especially evident when you see your dog’s health grow poorly.

I hate seeing him/her like this, and I know that they must be feeling even more miserable and uncomfortable. 

But I can’t seem to figure out what exactly is wrong, and what they need to feel better.

I know that all wisdom belongs to You, and You guide those who seek You.

I ask that You would please grant me wisdom in knowing what is the matter and how to treat my beloved dog. 

Please give the vet guidance, and make the solution known to them or to me.

If I am doing something that is not helpful to them, please make me aware of it, and lead me on the right path.

Help me to discern what to do next, and bless my dog with good health.

In Jesus’ name, amen. 

Prayer for Pain Relief 

No one likes to be in pain, and this goes for our friendly pets as well.

Medication may be able to give some relief, or relieve your dog’s pain for some time, but if they are experiencing recurring pain, you can ask God to relieve them of their pain through prayer.

Father in Heaven,

Thank You for being the merciful and gentle God that You are to us. If there is anyone who is acquainted with pain, I know it is Your Son.

I in no way would compare my own pain or even the pain of my pet to the pain that He experienced.

But I do know that You personally know pain, and are also able to heal us of our pain. Today, You know the pain that my dog is experiencing.

I imagine that it is uncomfortable for them, and is stripping them of a lot of their strength and energy.

I ask that You would please grant them Your strength, and help them to eat, drink water, and to get some  activity in.

Please relieve them of their pain, and help them to find comfort and strength.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
