Prayers For a Sick Cat
Approximately one week ago our cat,Zoey, became ill. She was vomiting and eliminating bloody diarrhoea. We took her to the vets on Monday to get her checked out. The vet did a blood test but it didn’t indicate that anything was wrong with the cat. The vet gave us some medication to give to the cat but Zoey would just vomit her medications back up.
A neighbour friend of ours went with me to take the cat back to the vet to get an x-ray as it was possible that the cat had swallowed a foreign object that was obstructing its bowel. The X-ray did not show any obstruction. My wife, our friend and I were relieved to learn that no obstruction was found. If the cat did have an obstruction the treatment would likely need to be surgery.
Before we took Zoey to the vets Martha and I prayed over the cat for supernatural healing. Those who know me know that I am a faith guy who believes that supernatural healing is still available today. I have done a lot of study on this subject and have learned that I need to practice praying for the sick. I believe that we are also to pray for our pets when they are sick and require healing. Recently, I have started praying with more boldness and expectation. While praying for our cat I put the Lord in remembrance of His promises. I got a word of knowledge to read aloud the scriptures from Malachi that pertain to God opening up the heavens for us and pouring upon us blessings way beyond our expectations. Although these specific scriptures are usually applied to prayers for financial blessings, I asked God to apply the blessing for healing for our cat. I told God that I wanted to see our cat healed as I wanted to see His power manifested and I wanted to give a good testimony of God’s will to heal. The result was that God made good on his promise.
