In the Dog Pit

Trofim Dimitrov

Belene, Bulgaria


Trofim Dirnitrov could hear the dogs barking long before he reached the pit. On the way, he prayed fervently for his enemies, the guards, who then threw him down, naked, to the hungry dogs.

Immediately, a great howling was heard.

When the officers looked into the pit, they saw brother Dimitrov kneeling in prayer and the dogs in panic. Barking wildly, the dogs were trying to jump the walls in order to save themselves from the strange power emanating from him!

Let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.

Psalm 5:11,12 NIV
