Our Heavenly Father,
Hear our prayer; Lord have mercy; Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy
on us and the whole world; Lord have mercy.
down upon this little dog, your creation, and show him mercy and peace.
Spare him further loneliness and pain; soften the hearts who hold him now
and spare this humble dog from destruction and give him to a loving home.
He has not done any act except that which was taught by the evil hearts of
unkind men. We ask for a happy, healthy, long and productive life for him.
We ask that this dog would learn to trust and love what honorable hands that
would rescue him. Father give us comfort for our troubled hearts and
saddened eyes; especially for your servant who shows great kindness to
all your creation. As in all things, Father, if it be your will that he
not be placed into those hands, then we trust in your wisdom and mercy that
he will pass into your loving arms as you have intended for all creation. We
are reminded of your promises
"In whose hand is the soul of every living thing..." Job 12:10 KJV
the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of
corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know
that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now."
(Romans 8:21-22 KJV)
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
