I just found out that my furkid (dog)Abby has terminal lymph node cancer and she is fading fast. This bilnd sided me and I'm broken hearted and very depressed. My just turned 9 year old daughter asked me if I believe in miracles. I of course said "yes." She then responded, "me too. Let's pray for a miracle that God heals Abby. If we really believe God will do it and Abby will be ok."
This practically killed me! I believe God can perform any miracle He choses, but I do not think he will completely heal this beautiful, gentle spirit who is almost 11 years old.
I love my Abby and would love a miracle in this situation. I just don't see it happening.
We have also been praying for a second child for 8 years with no success. I'm not sure how to tell my daughter that sometimes God answers, "no" even when we believe.
Does anyone have any experience with this type of situation?
