Prayer For My Pet
1998 by Robyn L. Stacey

Dear Lord, It's me again -
The one with the sick pet.
I've come to ask a favor
For my friend at the vet.

As you already know,
He's been with us a while.
He's made our house a home
And gave to all - a smile.

When he was real young
He came to live with us.
He brought us much joy
And lots of happiness.

We've been together
Through the good and bad;
To see him so sick,
Makes me feel real sad.

I look at his picture;
I remember the fun -
The games he liked to play
'Cause he usually won.

When I needed him,
He's always been there,
But now he needs me
To offer my care.

I'm so lost and confused
I don't know what to do;
So, I pray for Your help.
I put my faith in You.

Lord, You gave me a gift
To love and care for;
May I please have with him
Just a few years more.

I promise to love him
Each and every day;
Dear Lord, I ask You
To please let him stay.

Thank you Amen.
