Enjoy reading and share 7 famous quotes about Prayers For The Sick with everyone.
“Who is to say that prayers have any effect? On the other hand, who is to say they dont? I picture the gods, diddling around on Olympus, wallowing in the nectar and ambrosia and the aroma of burning bones and fat, mischievous as a pack of ten-year-olds with a sick cat to play with and a lot of time on their hands. Which prayer shall we answer today? they ask one another. Lets cast the dice! Hope for this one, despair for that one, and while were at it, lets destroy the life of that woman over there by having sex with her in the form of a crayfish! I think they pull a lot of their pranks because theyre bored.”
— Margaret Atwood —
“An amusing, if rather pathetic, case study in miracles is the Great Prayer Experiment: does praying for patients help them recover? Prayers are commonly offered for sick people, both privately and in formal places of worship. Darwin’s cousin Francis Galton was the first to analyse scientifically whether praying for people is efficacious. He noted that every Sunday, in churches throughout Britain, entire congregations prayed publicly for the health of the royal family. Shouldn’t they, therefore, be unusually fit, compared with the rest of us, who are prayed for only by our nearest and dearest?* Galton looked into it, and found no statistical difference.”
— Richard Dawkins

Some of you may read this title and think “A prayer for healing a sick pet, really?”
The truth we know that in most countries animals are kept outside of the house. So I would imagine some of you would not think of praying for a sick pet. Especially when you think of all the people that you know that need prayer. I’m hoping that by the time you read this article, you will change your mind about this.
You see, to many people their pet is much like a member of the family. This is their baby.
I am also convinced that dogs were put on this earth to teach us how to love unconditionally.
The first time someone asked me to pray for their sick dog it did take me by surprise but since I told her I would do it I went with the request to God and asked what was His perspective on praying for a dog or a cat.
These are the thoughts that came to me:
1. If pets weren’t important to God then He never would have commanded Noah to take two of each type and put them on the ark when He was about to destroy the earth with a flood. (Genesis 7:16). Let’s face it He wouldn’t have created them in the first place!
2. Isaiah 65 which is the picture of the new heaven and the new earth has the wolf and the lamb eating together while lions will eat straw. Even a snake is mentioned! This is the picture and harmony among all animals on the new earth.
3. Remember that man was the one that brought sickness and death to the earth through sin. This means that animals, much like man, was created to live forever. Even the plant life would live forever because there would be no death. Can you imagine your garden blooming year round and nothing dying? We are the ones responsible for animals getting sick.
4. Nowhere in the bible does it say that your pet hamster, pigs or pet fish has a soul that needs to be saved. While pets are important to God, they are not to be viewed above humans. You shouldn’t love your animals more than you love a fellow human being. We have souls that need to be saved and animals do not. The bible clearly shows us that God puts a greater love on humans and so should you. Matthew 6:26 (NIV) “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
5. Revelation 19 has Jesus coming back on a white horse. Through this we know that animals are in heaven.
So now that we have established that pets are important to God and that they are in heaven, let’s talk about the process of healing.
Are you wondering: Can prayer heal the sick animal?
Here are some scriptures to consider before praying for your animals
Proverbs 12:10 (NIV) “The righteous care for the needs of their animals,but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.”
Psalm 145:9 (NIV) “The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made.”
Exodus 23:12 (NIV) “Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and so that the slave born in your household and the foreigner living among you may be refreshed.”
The sabbath rest was not only intended for you but for your animals as well. Since we have dominion over animals we should be the ones enforcing the rest.
What does the bible say about healing?
Jesus was known in the Bible as the great healer and there are many healing prayer scriptures that you will find speaking of those that he healed. Do you know the story of the woman who had the “issue of blood”? It was her faith that gave her the strength to press on through the crowds until she got to Jesus. She was praying for healing and her faith was so strong that she knew that just by the simple act of touching the hem of his garment she could get that healing that she was praying for. It was the full belief that she had in the healing power of Jesus that caused her to do what she did – in this case she did not even ask! She just touched a piece of Jesus and she was made whole because she believed.
Your sick pet cannot ask either but you know what they need so you can make supplication for them. Activate your faith and belief in the healing power of Jesus and ask for them.
Can you recall a place in the Bible where Jesus refused to grant the request of a prayer for healing? No, there is no record of that. Ask God to strengthen your faith so you can believe for healing for your sick animal.
Here is a little prayer for healing your sick pet
Lord I know that I am your child and as such you hold me higher than the angels and the animals that you have created. Even so, pets are all important to you whether it is a dog, cat, lizard, snake, hamster, pig, a fish whatever it may be, you created it. Lord, I thank you for your awesomeness and power, for providing for my every need and the needs of my animal. So, Lord, I come to you now praying for healing for my sick pet, ________. I am in need of your help. You know the exact illness that is afflicting my pet even though he/she cannot speak; I trust your divine guidance in_________life. Help them Lord; deliver _________ from any pain and suffering. Grant ___________ your peace as I place him/her in your capable hands.
