As Christians, many of us were raised to pray before meals. It’s important for families to gather around the table to bless their food, give thanks for their many blessings and pray for anyone in need of God’s healing. And don’t dogs count as family members? Of course they do!
In this adorable video, a man tells his dog to wake up for breakfast. As the cute pup saunters out of bed, his owner stops him to pray before he can eat his breakfast. The dog promptly puts his paws on his owner’s legs and bows his head. As the man gives thanks for his life and his dog’s life, he’s careful not to leave this out: “I do ask a special prayer that you help me to not chase the neighbor’s cat and to listen to my master whenever he asks me to do something. In your heavenly name, we pray. Amen.” And with that, the dog is off to his food bowl, eager to chow down on his breakfast!
If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know that they truly are “man’s best friend.” It’s been said that dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. After watching this video, you’ll believe that wholeheartedly.
