Prayer Request for Bob the Dog

From Katie:
Please pray for our dog, Bob. He's been gone since Monday (3/28), perhaps even Sunday night. He's friendly with other dogs, but is sort of fearful of people. He's a big dog, a shepherd mix, I worry that someone has gotten angry at him. We live out in the country and I don't know what else to do to find him. We've called the pound daily, we've put ads in the papers, and we've hung fliers. Please pray for his safety and return, and to help me to know what else to do.

Thank you,

Urgent Prayer Request for Daisy the Dog

From Tara:
My dog Daisy has been lost. She was placed with a rescue after I had lost my job and had to move out of my sister’s house. She became pregnant (she’s older-7 years old) and the vet told me that because of her size in relation to other Dachshunds, it would be impossible for her to become pregnant. I panicked when I found out she was pregnant and called Dachshund rescue. I told them that I needed to surrender her puppy, but I wanted to re-adopt her after I got back on my feet financially. They strung me along for 8 months, asking for all sorts of paperwork and vetting information for my other dogs. I submitted everything and they still were stringing me along.

I have to give you a little bit of my background. I lost everything a few years ago. I first lost my dear father from Brain Cancer in 1996, I met a man who I thought was my soul mate right before my dad passed. My mother didn’t like him from the beginning, but I didn’t listen. He had good job with the local fire department and I had a successful mortgage business. He began using drugs and abusing me. He ended up living on the street and I lost everything: My business, my savings, my car, my house-everything. I ended up taking care of my mom until she passed away from Cancer in 2004. I have a younger sister who does not speak to me because of my mom’s life insurance policy. My mom wanted to give me more because I ended up taking care of her for the last six years of her life.

I was diagnosed in 2007 with Ovarian cancer. I cannot have children, so my dogs are my children. I received a call from an ex-board member of this rescue organization on March 24th who told me that they never intended to give her back to me and the she ran away from her “foster” dad on March 3rd. He is a process server and had her riding around in the car with him. She must have escaped during one of his stops.

This little dog is my life. I have other dogs, but she is special. This rescue organization’s veterinarian led me to believe that her life was in danger and that I had to surrender her in order for her to survive. My heart is broken and I am so depressed. I’m afraid I am going to lose my job because I can’t function. I’ve attached pictures of her and the places where she might have escaped.

Please pray for me and Daisy to be reunited very soon.

God Bless,

Update on Cinnamon the Cat

From Christy:
Good Morning,

I have contacted you before about prayer for my kitty Cinnamon. She has feline leukemia and her health has been great for the last few months until this week. According to the vet she has a cold or something like it - she has no fever, which I am thankful for, she is eating but not well. She is still mobile and jumps onto the windowsill and goes to the food/water dishes by herself. If she didn't have feline leukemia I wouldn't worry as much but I know how it can effect a cat.

Could you please pray that she starts to eat better and that the medication begins to work quickly.

I appreciate it.

Thank you,

Urgent Prayer Request for Oakley the Dog

From Fran:
.....please pray......HARD....God isn't listening to me again.....or so it seems.

We had Oakley fixed a couple of weeks ago. He's started obedience classes. The problem is that he's getting a lot worse. He's started mouthing me when I drive (I almost lost control of the car tonight on the way back from class) and screaming when I crate him.

Ali wants to take him back.

I don't know what's best.

Thank you and God bless,

Prayers for My Lost Border Collie Kiera

Urgent Prayer Request for Emma the Dog

From Matt:
Last week my Springer Spaniel named Emma was diagnosed with terminal liver disease. My wife and I are devastated. Emma is 9 years old and my best friend in the world. When I am not at work she is my constant companion whether running errands, in the field, the woods, or on the lake. The disease is terminal. The doctors have been great. They told us she may have 2-3 months left but she is in liver failure as I write this. My wife and I do not want her to suffer. She is currently stabilized. Unless there is a miracle, we will protect her from suffering seizures, convulsions, vomiting, and incredible pain by putting her down later this week. I took this week off from work to be with her while she is stable and appears to not be in pain. However, the 7 medications she is on and their side effects are creating another kind of suffering. My heart is broken. Emma is my wonderful little black and white springer spaniel that I probably love more than I should. God made her for me and now he is taking her away. Please pray for my Emma.

Sad News - Sasha the Cat

From Rebecca:
Thank you so much for your prayers. My little Sasha was waiting on me last Sunday night and she meowed and I picked her up. I was excited that her lymph nodes were no longer swollen. However, God in his wisdom wanted to take Sasha where she could be completely whole. I held her in my arms and sang Amazing Grace to her and she went on to be with Jesus. She passed peacefully. Even though she left me so quickly and unexpectedly my prayers were answered that she wouldn’t suffer and I wouldn’t have to make a decision to have her put to sleep. I was in shock that she died because that morning she rolled over and purred as I said goodbye and I had called and left her messages that day that I loved her. I believed in my heart she was on her way to be healed and she was, just a different way than I expected… I was very thankful that she was able to say goodbye.

I know that the comforter will take me through this as I was taken through when Daddy died…..

God bless you.
Please say a prayer for Rebecca during this sad time.

Good News - Wompa the Cat

From Willie:
Thank you all so very very much for your prayers. This is truly a testament to prayers, hard work and patience. I found Wompa late last night sitting on my doormat--wet, dirty and hungry. I am so happy and thankful. Although we (Wompa and I) are new to each other, and he is an old man, I think he knew I meant well and held love in my heart. He came back, maybe he did adopt me afterall! Bless St. Francis and everyone on this blog. :) Cats are amazing, as are connections, and most of all altruistic love.

Please could you pray for MURPHY my West Highland Terrier. He is 9 years old, and has been healthy all of his life . 3 weeks ago we noticed he was having breathing problems, we took him to the Vet and was told he might have an enlarged heart. he has had various tests and we have now been told (yesterday) that he has a very large tumor on his lung that is pressing on his heart. We have been told he might live for another week and to take him home and spoil him for the short time he has left. I feel as if my world has come to an end, I have prayed to every Saint I can think of. Please pray for him he is fighting for breath but is still trying to be the wonderful kind and caring little man he has always been. He dosen't want to give in yet. Please pray for him.

Prayer Request for Samson the Cat

From comments:
Hello all, please please please be so kind as to pray for my young kitty Samson. He somehow snuck out of the house today while I was unloading groceries but I didn't realize til two hours later. He is just six months and is an indoor kitty so doesn't know of the world outdoors and I'm sure he's terrified. We've looked all over and can't find him. It's very cold out. My husband and I are beside ourselves. Please send prayers. We moved our St. Francis statue from the deck to the front of our house (by the garage where Samson escaped) to guide him home, just in case. I don't know what else to do.

Prayer Request for JB the Cat

We adopted JB who was a feral cat and had him neutered with all shots and tests and we were working on bringing him into our home with our other cats.

God Bless you and your blog.

We've posted fliers in and around our neighborhood, as well as in places where cats matching his description have been seen. We call the shelters regularly, but he hasn't turned up there yet.

Urgent Prayer for Roxy the Dog

From Jaclyn:
Please pray for our Roxy. She was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer (Hypertrophic Pulmonary Osteoarthropathy) after 3 long months of testing. The doctors gave her 2-6 months to live. Her tumor is growing. We've been doing all of the research we can...most doctors have never seen her condition. We found a surgeon who feels she has a good chance if we remove the tumor in her lung. Tomorrow morning she is having surgery to remove the mass from her lung. The surgery and first 24 hours after will be critical. We rescued her 9 years ago from an animal hospital. She is the most amazing companion to myself, my kids, my parents and my brother. She has gotten us all through tough times in our lives. We love her dearly. She is peaceful, loving and sweet. She is still playing...still eating and still fighting. The disease causes swelling, bone growth and pain in her limbs. If the tumor is removed the swelling will go away and she can enjoy another year, two years or more with us. Thank you so much.
