For our Furry and Feathered Family Members:

At times, we also include beloved furry/feathered friends on our prayer list. We believe that they deserve prayer as they are members of our families. We also believe, as is taught in Orthodox Christianity and is well, obvious to anyone who loves animals and birds, that they, too have souls and each has a purpose in life.

Oftentimes, we read of inspiring NDE stories where the departed has been greeted by a beloved dog, etc.

In light of this, I have changed part of the Prayer for the Sick and Those in Need: O, Most Holy Dea, Mother, Daughter and Great Mother, have mercy upon  these, Your children and may they attain mental, physical and spiritual health. Through the Pure Stream of Your Grace, may all events unfold according to their highest good and to their Soul Path.
