Please Pray for Braja at Lost and Found in India

Friends are friends, no matter the distance, no matter the time. A good friend once told me that true friends are those who chase sleep for you. Quickly, over the waves of the internet, Braja at Lost and Found In India has become a close friend, though we’ve not yet met. I am but one of a few hundred Braja fans, but somehow, amongst the crowd, we connected. Across all sorts of barriers, cultures, and miles, we connected.


I’m not going to go into details – suffice it to say that my friend Braja (from Australia) and her husband Jahnu (from Denmark) and their driver were in a very serious car accident in India and all three desperately need our prayers. Paul V is keeping us updated – thanks, Paul! And LadyFi and Vodka Mom are helping to spread the word. Please pray for these two, Braja and Jahnu, as well as their driver, who was also seriously injured.


And Braja – when you can read this – know that I’m lifting both you and Jahnu, and your driver, up to the Father and crying out for healing, comfort, and peace. I'm chasing sleep for you. I love you, girlfriend.

Lisa suggested we all pray at 12 noon (wherever you are!) tomorrow, 3/14 - high noon for Braja and Jahnu.  What a way for bloggers to come together and honor one they love!

(I'm taking a hint from Lady Fi and posting a picture of a Rangoli design in honor of Braja.)

Thanks for getting the word out so quickly. As you say, Braja has a wonderful way of connecting with people with a very special warmth.

We so many of us as well as her own devotees praying for the three of them, I have faith they will heal in time.
