When Your Best Friend’s Best Friend Needs You

This is my best friend’s best friend, Griff. He is having surgery tomorrow morning, he needs your prayers.

I told my best friend this morning that, while she was in the doctor’s office waiting to hear if they would consent to perform the surgery immediately, I was at home doing what I could to help: sitting on a bed of nails, flagellating myself with a cat-o-nine-tails with crossed fingers and toes, loudly bending the ear of every available deity of every known religion, large and small, known and unknown.

It must have helped, I told her. 😛

But this is serious business, my friends. It’s cancer and Griff is going to have his spleen removed tomorrow. Our hope is that the cancer is going to be pulled out with the spleen and all will be well again with my best friend and her best friend.

Will you, please, join me in prayer?

Heavenly Father, watch with us over our friend Griff, and grant that he may be restored to that perfect health which it is yours alone to give. Comfort him in his suffering, strengthen him and give him patience. Give us all confidence in your loving care. Bless those that work to care for him, send your Spirit into the hands, mind and heart of the surgeon. Make these words to be more than words, make them to be a living flame, a testament to your love and mercy for us and for all your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  1. I’ve lost two dogs to cancer. Prayers have begun.

  2. awww, friend. This didn’t show up until this morning. Still, I’m certain the Lord has blessed both of you and kept both of you in the past 24 hours. Faithfully yours, *karendianne.

  3. Praying with you…

  4. Just found this; hoping you got a better outcome. we had to do that exact same operation with our last dog, and he died on the operating table — just before they cut him open. Spleen cancer — for him, anyway — came on really fast and he succumbed within 2 days of our even knowing about it. So I ache for your friend and wish her and Griff all the best… He looks like a really sweet dog.
