Prayer Request for Abbie Gail the Dog

From Brian:
Our 12 year old boxer has been diagnosed with DM. She has stopped walking. Even with the cart she does not seem to want to go. Your prayers for her recovery would be welcomed. She is a friend to all.

Update from Brian:
Thank you very much! DM is similar to multiple sclerosis in people. It affects the central nervous system (CNS), which consists of the brain and spinal cord. The CNS is responsible for carrying nerve impulses or messages to and from the muscles. Axons carry these messages and are similar to electrical wires. As with electrical wires, axons require insulation. Without insulation, the message leaks out. In the progression of DM, the myelin sheath (insulation) on the axon is damaged or slowly destroyed rendering the muscle incapable of carrying out a movement.

I wanted to ask for prayers for my birth moms dog Bizmark, who has gone missing. He was outside in the yard enjoying the afternoon sun, when mom came out he was gone.

We decided we could not put him through chemotherapy, so have opted to give him steroids. we know that this will not cure hin, but it will hopefully prolong his life and allow him a good quality of life. it was an extememly upsetting time for us, but we belive we are doing what is best for Casper.I know that your prayers and support have helped so much and they continue to be of such comfort. Please keep praying for him that he will be with us for as long as possible and that he will not experience any pain. Thank you so much, Juliette

Urgent Prayer Request for Franky the Dog

Thank you Lou Ann for bringing this to our attention!
I was alerted by an acquaintance of a dire situation he is currently involved with, and a request for prayers.
A St. Bernard dog, Franky, is in serious danger of being euthanized for a most minor offense that he truly is not responsible for and so very sadly his owner does not have his best interests at all in mind, is not acting responsibly; apparently does not even care for Franky but refusing to allow him to be adopted by another individual who wants very much to help. The situation sounds most dire and when the prayer request came I thought immediately of our prayer warriors. A terribly sad situation and might I ask the prayer warriors for their urgent prayers on Franky's behalf and those trying to help him. Sincerest thanks! Lou Ann

Good News on Luna the Dog

From Laura:
Hi everyone. I wanted to update you regarding Luna. Her first tests said her blood sugar was very high, that's when I asked for your prayers. In between this time and her second test results her symptoms pretty much dissapeared. Her second results arrived this week and said her blood sugar was just fine! Her pancreas isn't working at its best but a treatment will fix that. So, no diabetes, no daily insulin shots, she's fine. Thank you so much for your prayers, I will be praying for you and your pets too.

Good News - Reese the Puppy

From Adrienne:
Praise the Lord...!

We have our Reesie back. He got out of the yard early on Sunday morning and by Monday evening, his picture was posted online on the Animal Control web site.

So grateful that he was quickly scooped up and taken to safety where we could pick him up! I went to get him on Tuesday morning, but they wouldn't release him until he'd been fixed and had his rabies shot. So we got him today (Thursday.)

He's a little sluggish from his sterilization surgery, but he's clearly glad to be home.

Thank you so much for your prayers. God keeps us all!

Update on Sparky the Dog

From Sue:
A note to thank you again for your kindness and support for our family. I truly believe that the prayers for Sparky are working. We took him to an Oncologist and got a very good feeling from him, the office staff and the entire facility. The Vet said "He's not a sick dog (because Sparky acts so normal), he's just a dog with a problem". I like that attitude. So, we are going to go with his recommendation of five radiation treatments for him. Hopefully they will start next week. I spoke to the Vet again on Friday, asking if we can expedite the treatments because I felt he was getting worse, but he explained that Sparky is most likely congested again too, (and not the tumor growing at an increasingly rapid speed as I feared), so he prescribed some medicine for him that have helped him breathe a little easier over the weekend. I keep putting Holy Water on his head and praying, which confuses him a bit, but I want to do all that I can for him.

Thank you too for your continued prayers for my Sigfried. This means so much to me. I keep thinking that the false alarm (and finding her twin) in December must be a sign from God to keep the faith. It was so unusual to get a call after so long. It reminded me of what happened when you found Honey and the woman who had your weather-worn flyer but could still read your phone number on it. I keep your miracle of finding Honey in my thoughts all the time.

Well, I just wanted to update you on where we are with him. I will keep you posted on his progress.

Good News - Stella the Cat

From Lou Ann:
I just received an e-mail from the friend who had posted me about Stella the cat, the cat from the veterinary office, who was very much in need of a loving and caring home following her surgery. It seems that some hearts have softened - Lyn's landlord has now granted permission for Lyn to have two cats, and some other objections seem to have been dismissed. Lyn is now preparing to personally take Stella home herself.
Continued prayers for all to proceed well, but it was certainly heartwarming news. Special thanks to you and all the prayer warriors!!

And...I found a message from Stella's new owner:

Dear Ones: I am the person who bonded with Stella many months ago and when she was declawed (all four paws) by my vet (who is my employer), my heart broke.

However, I am happy to report that my roommate has changed her mind and Stella will be coming home in about 2-3 weeks to spend her days with me and my other cat, Bodhi. Since her declawing, Stella has withdrawn from the office dramas and now happily sleeps in the sun. I've told her she is coming home with me and when she sees me...she smiles. She knows her life is going to change.

Thank you - all of you - for your prayers for Stella. She is a unique soul. She was found on the streets of Philadelphia 2 years ago and my vet rescued her. Stella and I understand each other.

Your prayers helped turn this situation around and I am very thank-full for all the prayer-full support.

All Love,
What wonderful news!! Thank you all for praying and thank you Lou Ann for the update (and for bringing this to our attention)!

Prayer Request for Phoebe the Cat

From the comment section:
Please pray to Fr Seelos, St Therese, St Francis and St Gertrude that the medication my vet prescribed for my dear cat Phoebe works and gives her some relief and improves her health. We love her so much and would be eternally grateful for your loving prayers for intercession.

Good News! - Peanut the Dog

From Maria:
FANTASTIC NEWS! Peanut will be OK!!

My husband and I spent all day yesterday at the University of Washington Veterinary College at Pullman where, under the care of the neurology and neurosurgery department, Peanut had an MRI and spinal tap. They determined that he had suffered a "spinal cord stroke" and with extensive physical therapy, will recover. He will be spending the next several days at the university undergoing physical therapy and we'll bring him home to resume the therapy at home.

When I asked for your prayers Peanut couldn't move his legs and could barely lift his head. He hadn't eaten or urinated for at least 2 days. I couldn't imagine that he'd be able to recover from something this sudden and devasting but I tried to be positive and repeat affirmations. Knowing you're praying with me helped me to relax occasionally so I could at least calm my mind and see him healthy and whole.
We received a call from the university last night informing us that Peanut has been eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, and has already begun his physical therapy!! I truly see this as a miracle.
I don't know how I can ever thank you all for your prayers except to join you in prayer for other sweet pets who need help too.
God bless you all and thank you!

Prayer Request for Pisi the Cat

From Erika:
I think your website is wonderful!
I would like to request a prayer for my missing cat Pisi. She's a stray that I started looking after and loving 9 months ago and she's been living in our garden and on our balcony. She's been gone for almost a week and I pray for her health, safety and return constantly.
I'm pregnant right now and so, so depressed that it's killing me - I know the stress is bad for my baby, but I am just so devastated, as I love my Pisi so much, I never thought possible.
Thank you for all your prayers and I will be praying for your loved pets, too!

Prayer Request for Bella the Cat

From Trish:
I'd like to submit an emergency prayer request for my missing feral that I care for...she has been gone now over two weeks, and that is about a week longer than she has ever stayed away, so I am very, very concerned for her well-being. She has been spayed, so I don't believe she is wandering for a mate, and I cannot figure out any reason for her to be away this long. Life is so dangerous out there for these ferals, and I try to protect her the best I can, and pray for her safety.

Please help me pray for her, and her safe return. Thank you so much.

Urgent Prayer Request for Maxi the Dog

From Kat:
Please pray for my beloved pet, maxi. He is confined right now. He is in serious health condition right now. He suffered from a head injury after falling down when my brother carried him. I kept on praying for him. Our whole family loves him so much. He is considered as part of the family. Please pray for his speedy recovery, and I wish and I hope, she will return back to the "normal him", the healthy dog we used to know. Thank you for prayers. It would be such a big help.

Urgent Prayer Request for Sparky the Dog

From Sue: "...We just got the news that he has cancer and we are just devastated. He sounded like he had a cold just before I got the flu but it never cleared up. We just learned that he has a mass at the back of his nose and around his eyes. The Vet said that is seems "aggressive" too. He is the sweetest thing in the whole world and we are trying to do everything we can afford to help him. But we are not rich people and we need a miracle. I've been praying nearly non-stop and saying positive affirmations for him since he can't say them for himself..."

I would also ask that you continue to pray for her missing cat Siegfried. It has been a long time since she went missing but Sue has not lost hope.

I received the following email from Paula, Mikey's owner.

Thank you for your prayers and your words of support. Mikey was loved very much and so he will be missed tremendously. We are trying to cope with the silence that he left. We are trying to keep our other dog, Bella, occupied because we know that she is missing him as well.

Urgent Prayer Request for Atticus the Cat

From Stephanie:
Your prayers have helped my cat, Atticus, in the past and I am once again asking for your prayers. Atticus lost one of his rear legs to a freak accident a couple of years ago. He is now losing strength in his remaining leg. He is being treated with steroids, but if they are not successful we will have have to make a difficult decision to relieve him of his pain. Please keep him in your prayers for a recovery.

Thank you very much,

Special and Urgent Prayer Request for Stella the Cat

From Lou Ann, our friend and prayer warrior:
... a dear friend contacted me today about a difficult situation involving a cat she befriended at a veterinary office where she helps out. The cat lived at the veterinary office but sadly the staff has really not connected with her. Stella had a recent surgery this past weekend and now is in need of a loving place to call home while she heals. My friend is only allowed to have one cat in her current living situation and sadly may not take another cat in.

She is hoping and praying to find someone who can take in dear Stella for her recovery (expenses paid) where Stella can be loved and cared for as she should. They are in the Chester County area of Pennsylvania. While my heart is breaking because I am not permitted to have any pets here, my friend asked if I knew of any suggestions that might help. I did give her some suggestions where she might try, but I also wanted to post you of the situation in hope that with the power of prayer we could seek holy intercession for Stella's situation - for Lyn to find someone who can shelter and love Stella.

Lyn has such a beautiful way with our many four-legged friends. This cat has not known a happy loving life...

Prayer Request for Spot the Cat

From Jennifer:
Spot is a very special kitty. He went missing Tuesday February 28th on a day I did not think could get any worse. I am asking that you all please pray for my Spot's return. He is a very shy boy and I worry about him day and night. I live near Houston and will be moving apartments soon. Please pray that he is safe and comes home soon. Thank you. God Bless....

Prayer Request for Missy the Dog

From Kestryn:
I hope you do not mind me emailing you. Clare (Macy’s mum) called me last night to tell me about your amazing page.

I am writing to you as I have lost my little girl Missy. Missy is a Silky Terrier x Maltese and is 5 years old this year.
Missy is very much a huge part of my life and I miss her so much, coming home is just not the same anymore. I feel so much emptiness.
She has been missing for 9 weeks yesterday after escaping from a relatives yard while staying with them while we were away on holiday.

The last positive sighting of Missy was on the 18th of January. She has wandered kilometers from where she went missing and to those that have come close she runs away from.

I still have faith that Missy is out there somewhere and trying to find her way home, and was hoping you could pray for Missy to come home safely to me, I would truly be so grateful.

Thank you so much – I am hoping for a miracle!

Warm Regards,

Prayer Request for Bisto the Dog

Please pray for our chocolate lab, Bisto. He had surgery for a torn ACL on his back right leg in November and on his left back leg 10 weeks later. He seemed to be doing nicely until today. He is favoring his back right leg which we thought was healing nicely being that it has been so long since that surgery. Please pray that this is just a minor setback. It breaks my heart to hear him cry when he tries to stand up. Thank you so much!

Prayer Request for Joey the Cat

From Katie:
I am so heartbroken as I fear my black cat Joey is missing forever. He must have snuck out of the house yesterday morning, I have been looking for him nonstop. I have been praying for him and have my friends and family praying. I came to your blog so I may have more access to prayers for my Joey. He is a short-haired black cat, so very friendly and he is declawed so its important I find him as soon as possible as he is not able to defend himself. He is very talkative and I am hoping that someone took him and in and will bring him to animal shelter promptly. Please pray thank you so much!!
