Prayer | Blessing our pets and other animal companions

Fido and Felix, you were created by God,
and you are loved by God.
May you and your humans care for each other,
learn from each other,
experience joy and companionship together,
and be a witness to shalom in this world.
In the name of God, the creator of life,
and of Jesus, the word of life,
and of the Spirit, the breath of life: Amen.

No sermon today. Instead, as creatures ourselves made in the image of God, we introduced our domestic animals to each other (yes, over Zoom), saw that they were good, and blessed them with this blessing. If you have pets at home, perhaps you might like to bless them, too!


If this post stimulated your thinking or restored your equilibrium, why not share it on social media? And why not flick a double shot coffee our way, to support our ongoing thinking, writing and praying. We are a small young faith community seeking to revitalize tired faith. Your contribution helps keep us awake.
