When the world puts you on an emotional rollercoaster that
takes a turn for the worst, taking control out of your hands, there is only one
thing you can do....sit back, let go, pray for a miracle, and have faith.
Who among us has not heard of Zayat Stables’ Paynter? The
colt who has been hospitalized twice in the last two months, this last time due
to an often fatal disease known as colitis. For a short while, it seemed
Paynter was going to buck the disease and make a miraculous turn around.
Then everyone’s worst nightmare became reality. The worst
possible complication a horse can develop from colitis is another disease that
sends shivers down the spines of all horsemen, Laminitis. This hoof disease,
like colitis is often fatal, since a horse cannot live if it cannot stand. To
have it in one hoof is bad, two is normally a death sentence. Paynter has it in
three of his four hooves.
With this latest development, it does not seem like there is
much anyone can do for Paynter or his connections, who continue to give the
colt every chance he can to fight off this illness. However, if Paynter and his
connections have yet to give up, then why should we? There is still one thing
left for all of us to do, and that is pray. Pray to whomever you worship.
So, if you don’t mind, I’d like you all to join me in my
prayer for Paynter.
I know there are several issues going on in the world right
now, but there is a horse out there, a brave horse, that needs your help. I’m
sure you know and have heard all about the developments, the illnesses to have
befallen the colt Paynter.
Lord, you are a miracle worker, and right now this colt
needs a miracle, for no mortal can overcome this type of illness on his own.
Lord, I ask you with all my heart, please save this colt, please work a
miracle, so that he may live to see many more better days.
This is one prayer out of thousands for this colt, and I’m
sure there will be many more. Please, hear the cry for help, not only from me,
but his connections, and the other thousands of racing fans across the country,
willing this horse to live.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
