Good and gracious God,
We pray for and pray with those who are mourning the death of a pet.
We thank You for creating the marvelous world that is the animal kingdom which enriches our lives.
We acknowledge today the grief, often deep and profound, that comes when a beloved pet dies.
Grant Your peace to those who are in such grief, especially the children.
And for those Lord who are making, have made, or will make the decision today to humanely end their pet’s life, be with them and comfort them.
