Prayer and forgiveness heal pet

One Sunday in September, after returning home from attending a service in a Church of Christ, Scientist, with my husband, I noticed that the side of our dog’s face and head had become swollen. She is my husband’s dog, and they have been together since she was a puppy, before he and I married. 

The night before the Sunday service, my husband had become upset with me. I felt his concern was unwarranted, so I got upset with him, too. Although the concerns remained unresolved and troubling to us, we attended church together the next morning. When we came home and noticed the inflammation, I sent a text to my mom and dad, asking them to pray for our dog. My dad texted back that the dog was a loved idea of God, and God’s ideas can’t malfunction. He said he would pray, and he encouraged me to pray, too, noting that a pet’s well-being is maintained through the prayer of a loving owner.
