Prayer for Dogs

Heavenly Father,

We thank You for the loving companionship of dogs. They bring joy and comfort to our lives, and we are grateful for the ways in which they enrich our days. They are our loyal friends and protectors, always by our side.

We pray that You would bless these faithful creatures and protect them from harm. We ask for Your healing hand upon them, if they should become ill, and for strength and vitality to sustain them. We pray for provision for their needs and that they may always be under Your watchful care and protection.

We also thank You for the bond that we share with these precious animals, they have a unique way to bring us closer to You and make us aware of Your presence in our life. We ask that You would continue to use them in this way, to draw our hearts and minds to You, and to bring glory to Your name through them.

We entrust these precious animals to Your loving care and protection, and we pray that they may live out the purpose for which You created them.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
