Bonnie E

Need prayers and support for the loss of my father.

I need prayers for the loss of my father. I don't know how to handle this situation - I'm still mad and angry that this happened so suddenly. We didn't even know he was sick and then he died of a massive heart attack. I am a Christian - born again when I was 15. However I haven't been living the lifestyle I should be. I actually want to run away from the Lord right now because he took my dad. I need prayers, I need support. I was seeing a man during this time (not a Christian relationship) and he left me yesterday. So now I'm dealing with this loss also. I feel like everyone I loved is leaving me and I just want to leave too. But I know I can't. I have two boys I still have to raise and I now have to take care of my mom, grandmother. I'm not strong enough and I don't know if I can get through this without breaking down. I'm taking it one day at a time - and since I'm not able to seek the Lord right now - please pray for me to get through this.

I lost my father in I know just what your'e going through.I too was angry,felt lost and unconnected from the world.My father and I was very close and it has only been 8 months but I still go to the phone to call him and then I realize he isnt there and the tears flow again.It will get easier as each day passes.Make a scrap book of him and give to your children that one helped me more so than anything.Talk about it and don't let anyone tell you not to cry.A very wise person told me this and it just might help you.Time Can Not Heal Only God Can..get angry if you want talk to God about it and let it out cause if you don't it will consume you to the point you will think your'e going nuts.If you would like to talk futher you can e-mail me look everyday at my fathers picture and wonder why but everything happens for a reason.You will go through so many emotions that you will think they control you but it's all part of the healing process and remember the Lord never puts more on you than he knows you can't handle.As for the boyfriend thing well sometimes it takes something like a tragedy to happen to open our eyes to the big picture and if it was meant to be he would still be there standing beside you all the way.The Lord has plans for you and maybe he wasn't it.But that doesn't make the pain any easier huh?Be there for your mother..Together you two can help each other through this and it will bring you closer together.He might not be here but No One Can Ever Take Your Memories..So Cherrish Them Always..God Bless You..Will Pray For You and The Family..PJ

Dear God
I ask that you shine your Love and Light down on Bonnie and help her find her way home to you. I ask that she feel your presence, hear your voice, see your Light in everyone and everthing she sees. May she find comfort in the rustling of the leaves in the wind, the warmth of the sun, the touch of her child's hand, the glow of the moon and stars and the Light in her sons faces. May she know that her father lives along with mine and many others in your Light and Love in the heavens above. May she find peace in the prayer sent out to her today and know that all prayers are answered by you. Thank you. Blessings Be.

Bonnie I lost my mother to cancer the day before my birthday in l999. I didn't know that she was sick. I thank God that we were able to rekendle our friendship while I helped take care of her. I too was mad at first, then grateful that she wasn't suffering anymore. The one thing that I can tell you is you'll never forget, but each day gets eaiser. Now I'm taking care of my dad even thought I'm sick. I just want you to remember that God doesn't put more of us than we can bear. This is the one thing that kept me going. As far as your man friend.....a real friend doesn't leave you when you need them. When my mom died; my close friend left me too. So I can relate to what you're saying about losing them both. Just know that God loves you and ask him to strenghten you and guide you. Ask him to lead new friends of support your way. The hardest part is over. Now it's time for healing and that will take time and patience. Maybe this pray will help you. Heavenly Father, I come to you with an open heart and mind. I know that I know you.... and know all about you, but it's hard to consentrate on all the emotions that I'm feeling and dealing with right now. I ask that you give me strenght and encouragement. I pray that I will grow closer to you with each day. I pray that I will be able to cast all of my burdens on you, Lord. I pray that you will give me peace of mind and a restful sleep. I pray that everyday that you will guide me in the right direction. This is my prayer; in Jesus name. Amen

Dear Bonnie, I am sorry for the loss of your dad...I lost my dad suddently from a brain tumor many years ago and it was the worst thing I ever went through. Fathers are always so special to daughters, and mine was my best friend. You have a lot of grief to live through and I have been telling people about a wonderful book "Healing Grief" by James Van Praagh, which might be of help to you--it's about all types of losses. Remember, there are many stages to grief...just hang in there. I am praying for you, and you will make it! God is watching over you even if you have not lived a good life-he loves you!

Bonnie, Im sorry about your Dad. I lost my mom in May of 99, and my Dad in Apr. of 2000. They were divorced for 25 years and I know that they will be together. They both died within 10 months. They are home, and someday I will see them both when I go. I am 43, and I will have awhile to wait, but I know that they will come for me when its my time. Its been hard, but, life goes on. You do the best you can in this short stay on earth, and then you move on, when its your time. The person that left you in time of need, was not worth it anyhow. When you suffer a loss, you find out really who is your friends and who isnt. Chalk it up to experience, and move on, they were not worth it anyhow. Keep the faith, and may God Bless You.

GOD Bless and Keep you. The devil tries to pull us away from having a relationship with GOD- and tries to do this at your best and at your WORST! Take a deep breath and know that GOD is LOVE! GOD loves you and would never do anything to hurt you. HE does things for great reasons. You may not understand now... but in the end there is always a great victory. GOD is in charge. He loves you and wants you to know this. Do not fear- for GOD will lift you up from all of this turbulance. Thank the LORD for all of the greatness that will come to you for turning to him. He hears your cries! He will save you once again! Amen!

Dear God, please continue to be with Bonnie and her family each and every day. Help her to know that both you and her father are still with her each and every day. Give her the strength to go on and raise her children the best she can. Bless her and all involved in this sitution, even though it all happened some time ago. Amen.

Dear Bonnie:
I pray in Jesus' name that you are doing well and that time and GOD has healed your hurt. Always remember the good times you and your father had; this will help lift your spirits and keep your father's memory alive in your life.
Remember that he (your father) and HE (our FATHER) are always with us, no matter what.
I pray that your friends and family have provided the strength and support you needed in your time of grief and, also, that you have found a new love (or perhaps reunited with the gentleman who left you; just because he left doesn't mean he doesn't or didn't care; perhaps he was also having trouble coping).
I realize this prayer is coming to you quite some time after the loss of your father, but perhaps you now need additional prayers, because no matter where we are in our lives, we all need to be pulling for each other and praying for each other. I'm sorry if I sound a bit preachy, it's not meant to sound that way. Just know that I pray to Jesus that God will continue to watch over you, lighten your load, and shine happiness and joy into your life.
Love, Peace & Blessings,

Dear bonnie, My deepest sympathys go out to you. I recently am struggling with the wonders of our loved ones leaving us. Just remeber god never gives us more then we can handle. I know things seem like you cant handle them and everything is falling apart. You have got to be strong for you and those children of yours. Remeber also that if god brings you to it, he will get you through it...take it from me, you must have faith...may god bless

God will never leave you, He will never forsake you. Trust in HIm and surrender to Him. He has plans for your life. Ask Him to show you what you need to do and ask Him to reveal what inside you needs to be changed by His grace. I will pray for you and your boys and your mom.
