I’ve been telling you all about the prayers of our youngest daughter, whom I’ve learned so much from about being faithful to prayers.
Today, I’d like to tell you a story about Peter and his dog, Millie. Peter is an acquaintance of mine from my last job, who also works for the same company I currently work for. When we worked together years ago, he told us a story of driving home one day, and pulling into the driveway only to feel a “bump” as he pulled into his driveway. Unsure what he hit, he put the car into REVERSE and backed up, over the bump once again. He got out of the car to discover that he had run over their family pet, Millie. He was devastated, as were his kids. They took Millie to the vet, but she passed away shortly after.
I was telling my family about the story, when our youngest daughter, who loves dogs, said she would pray for Millie. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that Millie had gone to doggie heaven, so instead, I suggested that she pray for Peter instead.
So, in faithful prayer, she added Peter to her prayer list, and has been praying for him ever since – every now and again, I’ll run into him at work and let him know she’s still praying – he can’t believe that she remembers the story, let alone still prayers for him, but he’s very thankful for the prayers.
