Prayers For Animals


Loving Prayers for your Animal

At St. Francis Animal Hospital in Columbia, we believe in supporting all beliefs. If you wish to pray for your animal, here are a few prayers appropriate for any situation.


Prayer for all Animals

Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures.

On the fifth and sixth days of creation,

you called forth fish in the sea,

birds in the air, and animals on the land.

You inspired St. Francis to call all animals

his brothers and sisters.

We ask you to bless this animal.

By the power of your love,

enable it to live according to your plan.

May we always praise you

for all your beauty in creation.

Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.


Peace Prayer of St. Francis


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;

where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.


Prayer for a Sick Animal

Heavenly Father, you created all things for your glory

and made us stewards of this creature.

If it is your will, restore it to health and strength.

Blessed are you, Lord God, and holy is your name for ever and ever. Amen.

  • "This place is beyond phenomenal. I have taken my cat here for years and we always received loving care that is sometimes desperately needed. Unfortunately my cat did pass last year, but they were here with us until the very end. If I ever get another furry companion I'll be sure to be back."
