Shane Whalen
This Prayer Circle is Dedicated to my son Shane Whalen Who Passed Away On March 15, 1999 at the Age of 24, & All Other Children

Start a prayer circle for bereaved parents who have lost a child.

There are many of us out there who have lost a child, and it is devastating. It changes the outlook on life, plunges you into a depression, and you think that the feelings and thoughts you have nobody else could possibly relate to. I think a prayer circle for bereaved parents would only benefit us and help us on our journey of grief. This Circle is one of Love, where a Grieving Parent can safely come to for Prayers, and to talk about their feelings.

Cynsas, I'm so sorry to read about your Kacy Angelica, such heartache to carry a child for 9 months and then lose her. Now she's your own little angel in Heaven for you and your husband. May Our Heavenly Father bless you with another child, may you already be pregnant, and realize your dream, and you will assuredly be prayed for here, God bless you!

I will pray for all those who have lost a child. My cousin and I were pregnant at the same time in 1996. We both went into the hospital, on the same day, having miscarriages. She lost her child. My daughter was born 5 months later. My cousin blames me for her losing her child. I wasn't married and had already had one child. I know that I am not the reason for her losing her child, but I feel like I shouldn't have been pregnant with my second child, not being married, but I was told if I didn't have another child before I was 27, I wouldn't be having anymore. I wasn't supposed to have anymore after my first was born, but with GOD and prayer, I had my daughter. I love my cousin and I pray that she will have a child some day. She lost twins in October of 1997. I had another child on November 22, 1999. I like to have lost him. My husband, who is my last two kids father, said that GOD wanted us to have our miracles. We found out that while I was pregnant with my third child, I had cervical cancer. I know that my cousin needs to take her pain out on someone and I will take that pain for her. I love her and hope that one day she will forgive me. Even though I haven't done anything to hurt her. I know what it is like to lose someone that you love. I have lost my cousin and her family. None of her family will speak to me except her grandmother. Please pray for her to be able to carry a child to full term. I pray for all the pain to be taken away from all of those who have lost children. My kids are my pride and joy and I don't know if I could live without them.

DEANSLOVE, what a heart-breaking story! It certainly has nothing to do with you that your poor cousin lost her babies. So please don't feel any guilt over it. Sometimes, when we've been hurt, such as your cousin losing her babies, you become bitter and hang onto that bitterness to protect youself from further hurt. But this is something that you cousin has to learn to deal with, she just may find it hard to be happy for you right now, but in time and with prayer, she will hopefully turn this around. She's missing out on your love and the joy of your children, but perhaps right now it's a painful reminder to her that you have children while she doesn't. But as I said, and you know yourself, this is not your fault, nor should it cause you to feel anything but compassion towards your cousin. I'll pray that God does bless her with a child, and more importantly, that she realize that she's not being fair with you and your family. I'll also pray for her family that doesn't speak with you, that their hearts are turned around and healing and love enter them. Don't let this hamper your own joy with your children, I know you must love them a lot! Thank you also for your prayers, and I hope your cancer is in remission. May God bless your family and put love into the heart of your cousin and her family,
Luv Sandy

I to have losted a son. It has been five years. Everyday I still have a heart ache but I know he is in a better world than I. All these events have put me in a bad depression. I will pray for you as I hope you will pray for me. This is a pain that will be with us and only God can help to live day by day. May you find some peace, as we all do in time.

10/17/2001 19:38

Hello starsf, I'm so sorry to read about your loss of your son. Yes, losing one of our beloved children does plunge us into a depression, but as the time goes on, it becomes a dull ache that most of us carry in our hearts all the time. Perhaps we will carry it through our own lives. It's apparent to me that this is a lifelong process, something that only we can relate to. I also live day to day, like you, and I know a lot of other moms do also, but there are also good days too.
Thank you for your prayers, and you will be prayed for here, and may the peace that only Our Lord can give, fill you and flood you with his love and blessings. May God bless you,
Luv Sandy

Hello starsf,I'm so sorry on the lost of your son.It's hard somedays to go on and other days it's easier,but all of us have so many good memories of our children,they will last us a lifetime. I have lost two sons one 8yrs ago in a train accident and our oldest boy 11/15/2000, to cancer. I too am going thru a deep depression, but every morning I pray to to the Lord to help me make it through the day. I have learned to take it day by day. I will include you in my daily prayers. God Bless everyone who has included me and my family in your prayers. May the Lored be with all of you.

Please forgive all of the negativity that is surrounding her and her family. Please allow her cousin to not hold any hostility to her. There is a reason for everything and I pray that her cousin realize a very important lesson for why she had to go through this. I have lost a child, and given birth to that lost child. It is hard to see my "enemies" with chilren and I remember all ofthe ab things that they have done, but then I remember how I have grown from my experiences, and I was shown how it makes me a better person. Let her cousin know that she is not alone, there are people she can talk to. Help her mend her relationship with DEANSLOVE and forgive her for everything that she has done.

10/18/2001 13:46

Hello peggyt and all, I pray that today we will all have peace and love in our hearts and minds, that Our Lord put His arms around us all and help us as we try to do our best each day, through our grief, and that we remember the wonderful times we spent with our children, and the blessings that they were to us until we see them again.

I lost my sister five months ago. She was 25 years old. She was 8 months pregnant and died 5 days after the cesarea. The baby survived and God has blessed him because he is very healthy and smart. My family and I have suffered a lot since she died and I still cry when I look back and think of all the things that she had in front of her, how young and pretty she much her husband loved her and wonder why God has to take the good ones...I have heard that only the good ones die young and now I am convinced that she is an angel in Heaven and that she watches over us. I also know that someday we will meet her again but in a place with no worries and no a wonderful place where our souls will be full of joy and glory.

10/22/2001 19:20

Oh chulita, what a mixed emotional time it must be for you and your family, especially your sister's husband. I'm very sorry to read that she died five days after giving birth by caesarean section. You all must be in great shock and pain. You have lost your sister, your brother-in-law has lost his wife, and a healthy baby is now your special blessing from God and your sister.
I know this baby will be treated special, given lots of love and reminded of the wonderful mother that he/she had. Of course you still cry and miss your sister so much, she was a part of your life for so long, and it's only been 5 months since her passing. But look into the beautiful face of her baby, and you'll see the loving legacy that your sister left behind. Give youself plenty of time to grieve, there is no set timetable, so crying and missing her still are very natural. She will watch over all of you, and she is in a place with only joy and glory, no pain. May God bless you and your family abundantly as you face life without your sister, daughter, and wife.

On Dec. 17th 1999, our only son Brian,A1C home on leave from the USAIRFORCE. Was picking up pizzas and getting gas as two black men approached him for his money and his sports car. They beat him up told him to drive them away down the street, our dear son begged for his life but the one as Brian reached for the door to leap out he shot our son 3 times killing him instantlly. All they wanted the money and car for was to attend a dance that night. They told several people what they did but they thought they wouldn't get caught. But the County Deputies did catch both of them because they were turned in to the police.
That was the most horrible thing that his daddy and me his mother would never think of our son. Brian was so loving, strong loved the Lord, helped many others in need of food,money,clothes,etc.he was always there for everyone. Are hearts are torn out. We just can't put outselves together and think clearly. Dec.3,2001 Will be our trial date to get justice, on for the murderer.Please Pray for the Two of Us (Brian's Mother & Daddy).
Brian was so intelligent receiving a scholarship to pay three forths of his education at any college in Florida. He was a hard working young man. He was always on the varsity basketball team at his High School. We know he is with our Heavenly Father and now he is safe in the Loving Arms of our Lord.

superwoman19462002, I'm so sorry to read about your Brian. What a tragedy, losing your child to the hands of others. Your Brian sounds like a wonderful young man, and did his best by his fellow man and his country.
It must be so heartbreaking to hear about his last moments here on earth, and I know you and your husband must be in much pain over that, and more importantly, the fact that he's no longer with you. And now you have to deal with the upcoming trial, and the pain that it will bring up, have you thought about staying away from it? I had a good friend who's son was murdered in a horrific way, and she just couldn't bear to attend the trial, but what works for her may not work for you, so do what you feel is best for you and your husband. Perhaps it will bring a little closure to attend the trial, I pray so. You and your husband are in our prayers, God bless the both of you, and I ask Our Lord to give you the strength spiritually and physically to endure your loss and the upcoming trial. May the peace of Our Lord be with you both,
Luv Sandy

May Allah give the courage to all those who lose their sons or daughters before their eyes. I pray to Almighty God to bless these families with rewards so that their loss can be compensated.

10/26/2001 10:42

Sheddy, thank you so much for your prayers and asking God/Allah to bless us all. It's very thoughtful of people such as yourself who have not lost a child to post a prayer here for all of us and we appreciate it very much!
Peace be upon you,
Luv Sandy

My Husband and I have been trying for years for children. In year 2000 we had a little girl that had diphemic hernia she only lived 32days. she was born on feb. 20 and died mar.23 we think of her everyday. Daddy and I have pictures of her. All of our christian friends were very supportive towards us.

10/26/2001 20:31

nanalee4u, I'm so sorry to read about your loss of your precious baby after trying to have children for so long. Although she only lived 32 days, she has made footprints in your hearts. And those footprints will last a lifetime. I'm so happy that your friends were very supportive of you, everyone needs a great deal of support when you lose a child. May God bless you and your husband, and give you peace as you grieve for your beloved baby.

Dear God,

Here I am again, feeling the heavy weight of grief, because of the grief I know is being endured by all parents who have lost a child. Father, I know that no matter how much I wish I could make their pain go away,I can't. Oh, how I wish I could! I know in my heart that all who post here feel the same way! Father, we know that only you can help each of us endure the pain of losing a child. I pray that You will continue to give each of us the strength and support we so desperately need daily to continue on our painful journey. Remind each of us often, Lord, that our children are alive and well in Your Kingdom. Keep reminding us, God, that the grief we must endure in this world cannot be compared with the joy that we will someday know, when we embrace our children in heaven! Father, please help us to feel the power of all the prayers that are being prayed for each of us every day! Thank You for the compassion and support that You send our way daily, through the prayers of others. Father, I pray that You will continue to let each of us know that we are never alone; that you will provide the encouragement we need from day to day. Father, I end this prayer by asking that You bless our president, our country,protect our troops,heal the nations and make it possible for all people to live peacefully and love one another! In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen

LOVE2U, I read your post and it sounds as though you're having a 'valley' time, grief has it's ups and downs, one moment you could be on a hilltop, happy, then the next moment you could be down in the valley, feeling the pain. You posted a beautiful prayer, and you know that you will be prayed for here, God bless you.
Luv Sandy

10/29/2001 13:47

Sandy~Thanks for praying for me and for understanding that I was having a "valley" day. It's such a blessing to know that those times do pass with prayer! Yesterday was a hilltop day, and today isn't looking too bad either! :) Isn't the power of prayer wonderful!

~ Dear God,
Thank You for the hilltop days, and for the prayers that lift us up when we are having a down in the valley day!

Thank You for my forever friends who pray for me, and for whom I pray. I pray that You will continue to lift our spirits on each "valley" day. May the prayers we pray continue to lift us up today, and in the days ahead. I thank You Father, for answering this heartfelt prayer. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen

10/30/2001 08:14

Dear Shaner;I am in one of my dowm days.I lost my baby on June 13th 2001 3 days before my birthday and in August I had an operation from carpal tunnel syndrome(fm my right wrist) Then 5 days ago I had an accident resulted in torn muscles on my left leg.I can't walk now.I don't know why everything is happening one after the other.I still cannot have my periods back as I am diabetic my sugar levels rise up due to stress.I pray everyday for Lord to lift us up.When compared with other mothers who lost their children maybe I shouldn't complain too much because mine died during birt but I am in my 40's and very much want a child.I can understand people who say that a piece of ourselves goes with our child.I pray to GOD to help all mothers to overcome this pain be strong and faithful AMEN

10/30/2001 09:41

tontis, I am so happy that you posted here, losing a baby while giving birth to her/him is devastating in it's own way, it's still a loss and one that you grieve over. I'm so sorry to read about your loss and all the problems that you're having. I'm a diabetic also, so I know that stress causes your levels to rise, and you're definitely going through a stressful period right now. You've just lost your precious baby, you're experiencing health problems on top of that, so give yourself plenty of time to come to terms with it all, you'll heal faster physically than you will emotionally over your baby's death, so be gentle with yourself as you recover. Yes, a piece of ourselves does go with our child, but love never dies, and the little Angel that came into your life for a brief time came for a reason, God doesn't make mistakes, so now you have your very own little Angel to watch over you. You'll be prayed for here, and may God in His goodness bless you and heal you fast from your physical injuries.
Luv Sandy

10/30/2001 09:47

LOVE2U, you're so very welcome, I'm glad that our prayers and your's brought you out of one of those 'valley' days, you'll still have them, but they pass as well. Yes, I could tell from your post that you were having a bad day, gosh, I still have them, so I understand completely! I'm happy that you're back on the 'hilltop', and once again, your prayer is so very beautiful!
May God bless you, and you post anytime you want, whether you're having a down day or a good one,
Luv Sandy
