    and if you don't, please hope for him.

    He's the nephew of a friend of mine, recently laid off, that my friend employed to tide him over between jobs. 27 years old, father of three. Fell and injured his spine, among other things. Doctors don't think he'll ever walk again.

    Thanks.

    I will certainly pray for him. I'd offer to fast as well, but I can only do that sparingly with my health at the moment.

    I had an acquaintence of mine who was in a car accident. She punctured her lungs and severed her spine. The doctors weren't sure if she would survive let alone walk. The congregation fasted and prayed for her and by some miraculous work she was able to not only survive, but walk. She was almost at 100% capability the last I heard from her. And that was a few months after the accident. The doctors were astonished.

    The fact that we have any of the medical capabilities we current have is a miracle from God. We should be thanking God daily for the age we live in. I know if it weren't for modern medicine, I might have died a long time ago.

    If you call the Chagdud Gonpa Foundation and give them your friend's name the entire Buddhist community will pray for him.

    Oh, no, Ravi. :( I'll certainly add Eric to my prayer list.

    God can do amazing things.
