AN OLDER PERSON’S PRAYER FOR A COMPANION CAT
Thank you for giving me so many years of life. And thank you for giving me the friendship of my wonderful kitty, who is also old, but who is loving and loyal.
I have outlived all my human friends, God, and I would be very lonely were it not for the companionship of my wonderful cat. Each morning she awakens me, and we share the happiness of a new day. Without my kitty, I would have nothing to look forward to.
Bless and protect my kitty, Dear God, and if it be your gracious will, allow my kitty and me to live out our days together, and when you decide it’s time for us to go to our eternal rest, let us do so together, just as we have lived for so long together, in love and peace.
God And His Cat
Although most of the animals domesticated by humans showed up many millennia earlier, the cat, as we know it today, made its appearance on earth only 5000 years ago.
And the cat is like no other creature on our planet. It can do things no other animal, including humans, can do. It has intelligence and mental abilities that are unparalleled among God’s creatures, and some of those mental abilities defy explanation. The cat is, in a word, unique.
So what is the cat? Where did it come from? Why is it here?
Cat “experts,” of which there are multitudes, all have theories, but none has any provable or even satisfactory answers to the questions above. So when we are asked these questions, we might well throw up our hands and exclaim, “God only knows!”
And that is what this book is all about. Maybe God is the only one who knows the answers to the mystery of the cat. Author Tom Williams explores what might have been God’s reasons for creating the cat and what he might have been thinking about during the 5000 years the cat has been among us.
You don’t hae to believe in a personal God to understand the message of this book. In fact, you don’t even have to believe in God.
An atheist may argue that there is no God.
But he certainly can’t argue that there is no cat.
