Prayer When a Pet Dies

Lord, I know you love all creation, especially the animals you made.  You said so yourself, when you walked the earth.  You made my dog, knowing he would be mine, and You loved him, just as you love even a single sparrow.  You have also promised that you have redeemed all creation and that all creation longs for the day when it will be freed of suffering and see the new earth.  Lord, I know this isn’t a specific promise about my dog, but he is a part of the creation you have redeemed and love.  So Lord, I’ll trust you with my beloved pet, not because you’ve told us your plans for our pets, but because the more I’ve learned about your character, the more I trust you.  I know he is in Your loving hands.
