Testimonies of healing for animals:
“In August I was booked to go onto a family holiday, I was going up to the Healing Rooms on the off chance that my friend from work was going. My friend had been having a rough time. Before, I went to Healing Rooms at Costa Coffee, I had called in on my daily visit to see my 2 ponies. I have had them for 25 years and although they are still full of life and mischief, they are quite old for their breed. This Thursday I found Hugo had several large hard lumps, they were across the underside of his stomach and up to his chest. I went into a panic as he has the start of cancer on his tail, I knew I could not go on the cruise the following Tuesday. I just could not leave him with these tumours, that had suddenly appeared. I had never seen anything like them in all the time I had been around horses. When I was in Healing Rooms at Costa Coffee, I showed the people there the photo of Hugo and Victor and I asked them to pray for them. They prayed and asked for healing, I could not have gone away and left them so poorly, I would never have forgiven myself if something happened while I was away. I went up over the next few days, and by Saturday the lumps had disappeared, this was 2 days before I was due to go away. While I was away, I had a sense of calm I was not worrying about them all holiday, the lumps have never come back since. I think they may in the end the lumps may have been caused by some biting insect in the bedding, as I treated that after, but even if it was that, it was still an answer to prayer and I can’t thank the people enough who prayed for him. It just goes to show that prayer can be answered without the person (or animal), needing to go to Healing Rooms. I was also so pleased at the way people answered my prayer request, I wasn’t sure how they would feel about praying for an animal but they picked up on how important this was for me and although it was an unusual request they didn’t make me feel like a nuisance for asking!”
“I came to Healing Rooms at Costa Coffee because one of my ageing ponies, he had become quite ill with Laminitis. This is something he had suffered with before, but this time it came from nowhere and he could not walk because of severe pain. I came to Healing Rooms at Costa Coffee to ask for prayer for him. I had been previously and had an answer to prayer for his brother Hugo, who had been ill a few months before.
I explained Victor’s condition, and said I would have to call out a vet the next day. I was nervous as last time the vet had said that there was a possibility that he may have to put Victor down, as he was so poorly, however, he was given a week to get over the worst of it. Usually, after an attack of Laminitis the horse / pony must stay in the stable for at least 8 weeks. This is to prevent damage to their feet which have become extremely sensitive, and it is too painful for them to walk on the hard ground. This was going to be problematic as he had become ill a couple of weeks before the Christmas period, and it would have meant visiting 2 – 3 times a day to look after him. Hugo, my other pony, would have to be locked out of the stable during the day, so I was worried about what would happen to him, if the weather turned bad.
After, the Healing Rooms Team at Costa Coffee prayed for Victor, I was able to let him out after a week, there seemed little point in keeping him in as he was now fine. There was no permanent damage to his feet, and he was galloping around like a mad thing in a couple of days.”
