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.

Hi dear Jen, nice to hear from you, especially reading that you feel better, that's terrific, Praise God! Goodness yes, there's still so much that need's to be done by those affected by Katrina, God love them, I read in this morning's newspaper that an elderly woman was rescued after 10 days, alive and well! I doubt she's the only one out there wondering if help is coming. Pray Elizabeth is doing much better too,
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,

Thanks Sandy, it is just hard sometimes, because I don't have the words for her. I don't have children so I don't how it would feel. It's hard to put myself in her shoes. I feel blessed myself that she is in my life. I am grateful because seeing the strength and courage that she finds in our Lord is what Lead me to find Christ and accept our Lord as my saviour.
It is amazing to see how with this tragedy over 100 of us were saved.
God Bless

Hello mightychana, you don't really have to say anything to your friend except that "I'm here for you" and then follow through, which I'm sure you will, you sound like such a loving friend.
No empty euphemism's - well, to us they're empty but we realize other's just can't comprehend our loss or understand it. Never be afraid to bring her child's name up, it's music to her ears, yes, it may make her cry but that's good, not bad! She need's to know that no one has forgotten her son. Losing a child is a very unique loss and on top of that her son was murdered, God love him, so she has this trial to sit through and that will be very difficult. My prayers are with you and she, may your friendship continue to florish and may our dear Lord give her His peace, comfort, strength, that surpasses all others in the days, weeks ahead,

I am back to tell everyone that we laid my Beautiful Daughter to rest yesterday, I was finally able to cry at the funeral when they played " Daddy`s Hands " that was her song to my Husband then they played " Yellow Submarine " which was the last song she and her stepdad sang together. I was able to get up and say a few words which is something I was never before able to do. My Husband and I were able to have our Grandsons for a couple hours, that was so great, we thank God for that. I have a long ways to go so please pray some more for us. Thank you in Jesus Name Phyllis

Dear Angel Moms and Prayer Warriors, ~ Thank you for your thoughtfulness and show of compassion during my beloved Diane's 9th anniversary. As I'm sure you can relate to; those of us who have been on our journey a bit longer still have our valley times, especially during special days birthdays, heavenly dates and any holiday. This one has been quite difficult due to the suffering of so many who have been affected by this horrific hurricane Katrina. Like everyone, I have been so depressed over what all these poor families are going through. I pray that God will heal the hearts of everyone affected by this American tragedy, and that God will bless people all over the world who have reached out to these families with love and compassion.

Jennifer, I am so very sorry to read about you losing your beloved daughter. Like the other angel moms, I pray that God will comfort you and your family as only he can. As other angel moms have already stated; the tears will come, and when they do, let them. Keeping it all inside is just so difficult. You have every right to grieve for your child. I pray that you have a lot of support from family and friends. Please know that we are here for you with love, compassion, and heartfelt prayers. May God bless you and family and give you the strength to get through your heartfelt loss.

Angel moms, thank you again for your kind words, and thoughtfulness. Please know that not a day goes by that I don't think of everyone and pray that God will each of you the peace that only he can give.

Phyllis, I just read your latest posts. I will pray as you have requested. Thank God you were able to let go and shed tears. I will pray also that your health continues to improve. I am also happy that you and hubby got to spend time with your beloved grandsons.

Love & Angel Hugs,

Phyllis my dear sister, there are no words, we understand "that pain", my prayers will be with you and family and I know that right now you are in shock, but just let it out my dear sister, you have the right to do so, cry, scream, pray, do whatever you want to do, we will be here to help you my dear sister, we understand that pain, but you have to let it out, we are here for you our dear sister, we understand no matter what, there is no judgment here, we are here for one another, and all of us just grieve in our own pace, if you want to yell out, let it be, if you are in shock, we will wait, you are in a safe place here my dear sister, we are here for you and our prayers are there for you.Love Selva

9/16/2005 19:37

Hi my dear dear sisters. I am still hurting like h...k, but I wanted to let you know that thanks to my dear sister Verna, I joined the President's day of Prayers, and yes I did prayed hard and hard for those persons that lost everything, and specially the ones who have lost contact with the families, we went through that during hurricane Andrew, and believe me that it was the worse part (as far as I am concerned), it took months and months until the families were reunited again. My prayers are with those persons in La and Mis, and in Fla, we have another one coming our way. This have been the most horrible hurricane season that we ever had. Yes we are prepared (maybe?) but heck we have to take care of our Global Warnings, this Earth can not take care of itself, while we are destroying our enviorement in the name of money. God Help us all. Love Selva

9/17/2005 09:02

Yes dear Phyllis, let those tears come out, it sounds as though it was a very personalized service, singing the songs that meant so much to her, I'm sure she was happy to hear them. You do have a long way to go, but we're here for you and keep your faith strong too.
Much love & Angel Hugs,

9/17/2005 09:11

Hi my dear sisters, yes, Miss V sent me the Presidents Day of Prayers and I prayed - I also watched it on tv, on CNN, very beautiful inter-faith service and day of prayer for all those affected by Katrina, God bless them all.
You rest up and take it easy this weekend, you've got to heal!
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,

Hi my dear Angel sisters. Once again I am here asking for prayers, it seems that this hurricane season is trying to teach us all a very big lesson, this is number 18th, never in USA history we had such a large number of hurricanes or tropical storm, I insist that we are not taking care of our Dear Earth, and that is the price we are all paying. We are having hurricane watch for tuesday, again, believe me Florida is a very very beautiful place to live, but this year people are wondering if they are willing to pay the price for paradise. Once again we are bracing, so please keep those prayers coming, we really appreciate it, and specially pray that Rita will not go even near New Orleans, we still can take it, but not them. I pray that we take the most of it and that it will just weakens before going into the Gulf. Love you my dear sisters and my prayers are with all of you. Love Selva

9/19/2005 00:55

Here I am asking for prayer again, I feel so selfish like I am the only one in pain, but that`s not the way I feel. I was so blessed getting to have my Grandson`s for a couple hours. Now both have deceided to come home when they are 18. Praise Jesus` name. They have gone home now. God helped me to keep my mouth sut. It was hard. Oh I pray dear Lord that you will give me the strengh to go on. I am so tired Lord. Be with me.Today my Daughter`s Best Friend came to see me and she told me she would be my Daughter if I wanted. A year ago I wouldn`t that but she has gotten clean now too." I can do all things through Christ who strength me. AMEN Phyllis

Dear Moms of Angels,
We lost our precious 16 year old daughter in a car accident on June 6, 2005. I have never know pain like this...almost unbearable. Today (18th) would have been her 17th birthday. Thankfully a lot of her friends rallied around us, making it a little more bearable. All we can do is pray to God to somehow see us thru this awful pain. I know our lives will never be the same but I long for the day when it doesn't hurt 24/7! I know it will always be there and of course, I don't want to forget her...just to be able to deal with the pain a little better. Please keep us in your prayers and I will do the same!
Please feel free to view the memorial page I made for her on here.

9/20/2005 04:14

Here I am needing you all again. I don`t deserve what I am getting but as long as it is me it can`t be hurting anyone else. My Son in law and my Son and his girlfriend won`t answer the phone when it is from our phone number so I had my neice call there they answered it right away. I know they think I gave her pain pills but I DID NOT as God is my witness and I can prove it my pain manager knows that he said I have too many left of septembers pills. Besides why would I do that ?. I do pray that none of you ever go through what I am going through. Having my Son and his girlfriend there living with him is not safe they are only off the drugs because they are ordered by the court. I pray oh Lord Jesus Christ that I am wrong, but a Mother knows.I better go to bed, my Husband is already there.Please pray for us .Pray without ceasing. I keep seeing Rhonda walking down the hall past my bedroom.The Lord keep us and take care of us. AMEN!

Hello dear Lisa,
You too are an AngelMom, although I know it's the last title you'd ever want. I'm so sorry sweetie that you lost your beautiful young daughter.
It's so recent, I know you're in that gawdawful pain that permeates every cell of your body. It's a pain like no other and it can knock the wind out of you and send you to the floor in a crashing heap. All of us here have and are experiencing that 24/7 pain that never let's up in the beginning, it's as though someone reached into our chest and pulled a piece of our heart out - and that's not far from the truth, for a part of our heart goes with our child. And then you had your daughter's birthday, your 1st one without her being ther to deal with on top of your existing pain, God love you. You must still be in a lot of shock and denial, I know that in the beginning I just couldn't grasp that Shane was gone, I thought I was in a bad nightmare but one I couldn't awake from.
All of us here know that pain and all the emotions it brings up, I and the other Moms say that only someone who's experienced this unique loss could ever possibly understand what we're going through. Just please remember, what you're feeling, going through, is all very normal, regardless what others may think - they can never understand.
We welcome you into this Circle of Love, you'll only find support, love, understanding and never any judging here, this is a safe haven to let out your feelings, whether you just want to vent or rant or just talk - your feelings are honoured here and validated.
Yes, most of us have made Memorial Pages for our children, it hel's to do something tangible for them and for us, so I'll definitely visit your daughter's page.
May our dear Lord give you His peace, comfort and strength, and know also that we're always here for you too,
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

9/20/2005 09:29

Hello dear Phyllis,
Aw, that's too bad, a family should be reunited and together in their grief, not torn apart. You just concentrate on yourself for the next little while and place it all in God's Hands, trusting that He will turn the situation into good from bad.
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Hello To all Angel moms, its been awhile since I've posted. With school in and the kids playing sports I'm super busy. I have homework every night. I thought when I was out of school there would be no more homework. Well now I have 3 times the homework and it gets harder every year.HA HA

Selva, you have had one heck of a year with all these hurricans and may God keep his loving hand on you and your loved ones once again.

Phyllis, you have been through something so terriable. Sorry to here about your daughter and like Sandy said, seems like the family should pull together in times like this. I will be praying for you and your family.

Welcome Lisa to our prayer circle. This is such a loving place where you can release your feelings without being judged. No one will tell you how you should feel or when to feel it. All of us know the pain. Our stories may be different but we all can relate in one way or the other.I've met some of the most loving, careing, God filled women here and the love they have for each other and the love they share with others is amazing. You will always fill welcome and loved here and there is always a shoulder to lean on. You have came to the right place to help with your pain and the grieving. Always feel free to say whats on your heart because it does help to talk about it.

Sandy, hey sweetie, hope all has been well with you. Same for you Velma and Selva. I dont get to email any of you that often but I am always thinking of you all and praying for you. Never seems to be enough time in a day. Love to all of you.
Love and Butterfly Hugs,

Hi my dear Angel sisters. I am sorry for not posting for a while, but I have been going through hurricanes etc etc. Phyllis our dear sister, I am so sorry that you are having family problems, but just hang on to God, He understands and will help you. Whenever stressful and painful things happens everybody reacts in different ways, some deal with guilt, and tries to find and answer to the guilt and maybe blames somebody else is their way out. Just wait and then everybody will find out that it was God's will. I am sorry for what you are going through and my (our) prayers will be with you always.
Lisa I am so so sorry about your loss and I (we) understand the pain, I lost my only child, Solange, she was 20 years old to a car accident, Aug 15, 2002, so I understand that ugly pain that you are experiencing, sorry to tell you that it will never go away, I am on my 37 month and still can not find that peace that time will bring us. My advise (if you let me) is just try to understand death, that is what I have done during the last 37 months, there is no death, our kids just moved to a better place, but they are still there, they are still our daughters and we are still their Moms, they can still see us but we can not see them, read my dear sister, I could refer you to many good books to read to try to understand, and pray to God. We will keep you in our prayers, we will give you understanding that sometimes is very difficult to find with other people who have not experienced this unique pain, you can let it all out with us, because we know and understand, so keep on posting here and you will find a Heaven in this Circle of Love. Love Selva

Hi Jennifer. So sorry I have not been able to write as much as I want to. Besides hurricanes I have been so very busy at my office, but hopefuly by next month I will have some time to write, but don't forget this. I always have time to pray for all of you my dear sisters. Guess what? even after 2 hurricanes have gone by, Solange's garden has stood up and even after the trees in the yard had fallen, her garden is still there untouched and the butterflies are still there also.Love you my dear sister. Selva

9/21/2005 20:08

My dear sisters. Here I am asking for prayers again. This time is for Lisa, our sister that lives in Texas, they are getting prepared (as much as they can) for hurricane Rita, this is the one that went through Fla yesterday, but now it is a monster. Please lets pray for them in Texas and also in La. I know about hurricanes and this is a killer. If we all pray together I am sure that God will help them I am also worry about Miss V, she lives in La near the Texa's border, so please join me in prayers for our dear sisters and all the people in Texas and La. Thanks. Love Selva

9/21/2005 21:20

Our dear heavenly father, I come to you today in prayer asking you to keep all of our Angel mom safe and out of harms way. Lord keep your protecting hands on them and their loved ones. I ask that for all people that are in the path of Rita. So many lives have already been lost due to the hurricans this season and Lord you know that these states cant take any more devastion. I ask all these things in your name. AMEN
