Pups of the Week: Easter Prayers

Today is Easter Sunday.  I have some readers who go the Church every Sunday, I have some readers who do not, and I have some who are chreasters and only go to Church on Christmas and Easter.  But I know everyone believes in prayers.  I think that the Big Guy has to grant prayer request on this holiest of days and I ask for prayers for the following friends.
We pray for two of our favorite pups, Pepper and her sister JuJu.  Pepper has lost nearly half of her kidney function.  The doctor thinks that Pepper can have a year to two, but those might not be quality years.  Please pray to give Pepper many more good days and that her kidneys keep functioning. Ju Ju has a tear in one of her chordal attachments.  She needs to be checked out again in three months.  There is no way to repair this.  We pray that Ju Ju’s heart does not become weaker and she and Pepper stay with their mom for many more years.
We pray for sweet Ruger.  Something has poor Ruger very upset.  He has been trembling and hiding from his family.  His mom is searching for answers why Ruger is no longer himself.  We ask for calming prayers for Ruger.
We pray for Boris.  Our friend Boris had a molar out, and that is very painful.  We ask for healing prayers for Boris and that he is no longer in any pain.
We pray for little Mouse.  He was having routine dental work done when the doctor found a growth in this mouth that was biopsied.  We are asking for prayers that the biopsy comes back negative.
We pray for 16-year-old Macdougal who, after his last liver enzyme test, showed a slight increase in the ALT test results.  His mom hopes this was just from nerves.  We pray for that she is right.
We pray for our friends Reese and Kole.  Their live-in Uncle Rob is in the hospital far away and he isn’t home for Easter, their grandmom’s dog Sara was hit by a car and had to go toe Rainbow Bridge, and their dad Jeff is recovering from Bell’s Palsy.  We pray that their uncle and dad are healed and that their mom has nothing but good memories of Sara and for their grandmom and may her heart be healed soon.
We pray for our friends Dory and Sugar, who recently arrived at Rainbow Bridge.  We did not know them well while they were on the mortal side but many of our friends loved them very much.  We pray that you heal Dory and Sugar’s families’ broke hearts and that they are able to sense when these two new angels visit them.
And we pray for all our friends, and our families, in these dark and troubled times.  May they have nothing but good health and success in the coming months and that we can all live in peace.
I wish you all a happy and serene Easter.


  1. We know that prayers work and miracles happen. Thanks for this wonderful post.

  2. Thank you for this beautifully written post. Happy Easter to you and your family as well. Stay healthy and safe.

  3. Prayers do help. Though I was sorely missing my brother who we lost on Good Friday three years ago, without warning, I drew great comfort today from communion and the kind words of my church family as we shared fellowship. Friends and love and prayer are more powerful than we know.

  4. The power of prayer is limitless - that's what our Mom believes.

    Sadly so many are in need of prayers, but we are sending along to all your friends in need.

    Happy Easter to you and your Peeps.
