Lost Pet Prayer

Dear Jesus, seeker of the lost, I pray for your help today in finding my lost pet.  I thank you that you are the Good Shepherd who cares deeply about us.  Thank you for creating the love and affection I have for my pet and for caring deeply about my sorrow and sense of loss and loneliness I feel without them.  I pray the seeking power of Luke 15 4-6 for myself as I look for my pet:

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them.  Does he not leave the ninety nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.  Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’” (New International Version.)

Please give me the wisdom to seek well and the patience to continue searching.

Please protect and care for my pet while they are lost.  Send good people to act as angels to care for, protect and rescue my pet as they wander.

And if in the end my efforts to find my pet are unsuccessful, I pray that my pet will be a joy and a blessing to a new family somewhere who will love them as much as I do.

I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
