Please Pray

on July 4, 2021

Psalm 36:6B- “…You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.”

Driving down the highway this morning, fifteen miles from Wickenberg, our dog somehow opened the window of the truck and jumped out. We stopped as quickly as we could and searched the desert to no avail.

Our Tobias, the Australian Shepherd and Border Collie mix we rescued on December 26th is gone.

We are broken-hearted and, of course, our minds are imagining the worst of all circumstances.

As soon as we arrived home, I searched the scriptures, finding comfort in the verse from Psalm 36.

Would you please keep my husband and I in your prayers as there is always the inevitable questioning which accompanies situations like this, such as “What more could we have done?”; “What, if anything, can we do to bring him home safe and sound?” 

Our prayer is that our dog will somehow turn around, flee the desert, and find water, shade, and someone to help him. We put him in God’s hands, asking Him to preserve Tobias and keep him safe on the desert tonight.

Thank you for your prayers.
