pray for danika

November 27, 2012

This lovely girl singing is Danika and she is 17 years old. True and Brave used to pretend they were Danika and Chicha, who is Danika’s cousin. Danika and Chicha were always together, so Brave and True would pretend they were them.

Last Wednesday, Danika had a severe asthma attack in conjunction with not knowing she had bronchitis, this dangerous combination resulted in leaving her unable to breathe and going into a coma. She is currently fighting for her life and all her friends and family are fervently lifting her up in prayer. The biggest concern is how much damage may have affected her brain, from that moment she first passed out up until she reached the hospital, her brain was deprived of oxygen. There is no brain swelling, but the prognosis is still unknown. She is having consistent seizures that they are praying will soon subside so that they can try to wake her up from her medically induced coma. We’re all praying for miracles over here.

Her uncle, PJ, who is also our pastor, wrote this… “Truths to cling to (and you need all 3 to be thankful and hopeful): God is good, God is wise, and God is in control of all things. If he is good and wise but not in control, he has good intentions and plans, but we can’t trust that they’d actually be carried out since he doesn’t control it all. If he is in control and wise but not good, then we might have a bully God who uses his power and wisdom to do us harm, not good. If he is good and in control of all but not wise, he might have good intentions and the ability to do it, but if he isn’t wise enough to plan the course of action that is best, then we have may have a mistaken God. But none of these are the God of the Bible. God is wise and in control of all, and he is good to us who are in his Son Christ Jesus. #bethankful #trustJesus”

We’re praying for Danika’s body to be fully healed, we’re praying for strength for her parents Nina and Dennis (and the rest of her family), and we’re praying for everyone’s trust in God’s sovereignty through this difficult situation. If you believe in prayer, please take a moment to pray these things for Danika and her family. Also, if you feel so inclined to share in this burden of asking for prayer, please do so. To keep with updates and to help spread the word for prayer, please “like” the facebook page Pray For Danika. #prayfordanika

Thank you friends!

    Our prayers are with her and her family! This happened to my sister too when she was 10…asthma attack, lack of oxygen to the brain, coma, etc. She is now 20 and completely healed! Her recovery was long, exhausting and sometimes heartbreaking. It took her quite a few years to get back to “normal”

    While my sister doesn’t remember much of what happened, it was an amazing experience for the rest of us. In spite of the stress and waiting and uncertainly, God really showed Himself to us in His care and love for us. There is too much that we learned from all this to share here, but we all came out of it for the better! God is indeed wise, good and in control…and also loving!

    Praying for this beautiful girl and her family. May god be with you all in this time of need.

  • Love the song. She is very talented. I pray that she will be able to come out of her coma healed, with a grand testimony to share so that many lives can be transformed and drawn to His glory through it. I also pray that she will be able to still sing as lovely as ever.

    My friend cheers at Pacific Coast Magic and we were looking at the Prey For Danika page I feel so bad. According to my friend Danika was passed out in her room at night, she had an asthma attack and her inhaler wasn’t working. She was passed out for like 30-40 minutes and wasn’t getting oxygen to her brain. She was rushed to the hospital after her parents found her that morning. She had all sorts of test and later a doctor came and she had surgery. After the surgery, if it was going to work she was supposed to have brain activity. No brain activity was detected the surgery didn’t work. Later the 3rd doctor came and they finally pronounced Danika brain dead. Today Danika died after she was taken off her machines.On the page it said that her family is planning her funeral. I prayed for Danika as soon as my friend told me about it. I am so sad that she was pronounced brain dead i cried after I heard she died. Even though I never knew her I feel like I did. Anyway I prayed and prayed, at least she stayed strong.

      Thank you for your comment Danielle. We’re very close friends with the family and have spoken directly with them on what happen to Danika. Messages can indeed easily get distorted as they are passed from person to person. Danika passed out right in front of her mother, brother, and cousin and they immediately start administering CPR, then the paramedics came in right during those moments in which they quickly rushed her to the hospital. She did indeed have various tests to check on the activity of her brain, but she never had surgery. Her family is planning her funeral and they ask that only memories and messages for Danika (and the family) be shared and not details about her death. They want people to be directed to the facebook page to get any updates or news. Thank you for the prayers. As difficult as this is, it is part of God’s will for their lives and God is still as good, and wise, and in control as ever. Please continue praying for the family.
