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.

Lord, be with my wife and I as we comfort each other in our grief. On Oct. 6 2007, we lost our 3 children, Brad, Samantha, and Chris to a drunk driver. Her carelessness also cost her her life and put her passenger in the hopital in critical condition. As we go through the fire, help us to be able to find some hope. Hope to go on and the wisdom to know what your will is in our lives without our children. Be with the others here who alos have lost their children...In the name of your son I pray...Amen

Dear Eaglenest61---It is Sunday morning, and I am reading your post. My heart goes out to you and your wife at the loss of your three precious children. To lose one child is an enormous pain to bear, to lose three I cannot even begin to comprehend. I will include you and your wife in my prayers at church today, and hold you in my heart. The path to my healing came through others holding me, strengthening me, supporting me, loving me. Let others do that for you and your wife--including those here in this Circle of Love.

Hello margaret,
Oh my, I'm so sorry to hear that, yes, may Our Blessed Mother cradle them both in her tender arms and may the Mom pull through the overdose. She did so out of her terrible shock and grief and God, our loving Father, know's that. May He be with this family in their great time of need, please let us know any updates,
Love & Angel Hugs,

Dear eaglenest61,
Its with profound sorow that I welcome you and your wife to this Circle of Love. Losing one child is devastating, I just can't fathom the painful depth of your loss of your 3 beautiful children all at once! Your loss is so very recent as well, your shock and grief must be overwhelming right now. I pray you have good, supportive people around you now and in the weeks ahead and you're always welcome here if you want to talk or vent. Lean heavily on God, as you seem to be doing, He will give you the comfort, strength and hope that you need.

Love & Angel Hugs,

My love and prayers. Selva

I lost my only daughter Solange to a car accident, she was only 20 years old, the shock, the pain, the anger is overwhelming, amy Sue find peace and strenght. My prayers will be with her. Selva

Dear Eaglenest61. I am so very sorry to welcome you and your wife to our Circle of Love, loosing 3 children has to be the cruelest and more devastating pain one can endure, I lost my only child Aug 15th, 2002 and I still can't get over it, both of you will be in my prayers, may God give you Hope and Strenght to continue, may you feel His Presence around you at all times. My love and prayers. Selva

Dear Paquita. Of course we will also pray for your niece, loosing a child is the most devastating pain no matter how old the child is, may God hold your niece in His Arms and give the family enough understanding to support her. Selva

Hi Everyone,

Seems like forever since I've been here. Between all the testing, not feeling well and the extra effort it takes to post here, I'm just not up for it. Does anyone know why if you are on another B'Net site you have to log off to log on here? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Dear Eaglenest, I think I met your wife on the grief dialogue group. I hope it was her because the two accounts are the same. I would hate to know that two families suffered the same devastating loss at the same time. Right now there aren't even words to express my deep sorrow for you and your wife. Please keep posting, it really does help.

All my tests came back negative so we don't know what's wrong. Basically I said enough, and will not continue to seek medical help unless I continue to lose a mass amount of weight or can't function. I'm tired of being a medical pin cushion. Last week started pretty rough, but by Friday things were better. Tonight, I'm down because of issues with my son. I felt fine all day until he called. Then I couldn't eat. This is a different pain and I know it's stress and will go away. We had a very busy weekend, had 10 for dinner on Sunday so I'm bushed now. Need to say goodnight. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

Hello our Jane! Good to hear from you, yes its been a while.
Gee, I don't know why you have to do that, I don't, I can switch back and forth from here to the new Forums without having to log-in or log-out. Didn't you contact Beliefnet over it?
You could try this: Clean out your cache....temporary Files and Trash Bin.
Then re-start your PC and that may solve your helped someone else at the Forums.
Well Praise God that your tests came back normal!! Do you think it might be a food allergy?
Very nice pic of you and Mike!
Much love & Hugs,

It has been awhile since I have posted. Yesterday was the anniversary of Lisa's passing. I pray for each and everyone one that post on this site. I think only someone who has lost a child can really know the pain of having part of our heart ripped from us. I know that I would not have made it without my faith and the love and support of my oldest daughter and loving Nikita. Take care and bless you. Cheryl Bryson

11/13/2007 21:12

I pray for them to still see the joy in life and for strength for them to make it through this extremely heartbreaking time. Let them know that there are many people out there who care about what they are going through.

11/14/2007 00:10

Hello everyone, thank you for all the wonderful words that you have posted. I know that God has guided my wife and I to and so far we have found so many wonderful people that will hold us up when we stumble with the burden we are carring. All I can say is thank you...God bless

Hi Everyone,
It's a bittersweet update on Taylor. She went to be with Jesus 12:15 yesterday morning. Her mother wrote that she told Taylor it was ok to give in and be with Jesus. She died shortly afterwards. Her family still needs a lot of prayers as we all realize. They've been through so much already and are worn down. Now the real grief work begins for them.

An update on the baby isn't encouraging either. She has a lot of brain damage and isn't eating enough to sustain her. Another family in desparate need of prayer.

Sandy, I have not contacted B'Net cuz I haven't had much time. Will try the cleaning out of temp files etc. I can move around all the other sites on B'net except this one. I must log off and then back on in order to submit. I keep thinking since I don't see any change here, that somehow I'm not where I should be. But I can still post if I log off first. Don't know.

Long day, really need to sleep in tomorrow. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

11/14/2007 17:34

What a powerful week! My prayers and heart are with Taylor,the baby,Brad, Samantha,Chris,Kaitlyn,Darrien and his mom,The 2 month old and the twins, and all children who have left us too early.
Pray that those left here on earth can stay strong and trust in God that he will stay with us and take good care of our children untill the time that we join them.
I'm going for a medical test myself on tuesday, don't want to share yet. Please think of me and pray that everything is ok. Love Chris

11/15/2007 00:59

Dear Chris, we will lift you up for the test. God's will be done. Thank you all for the kind words and prayer. Be blessed...

11/15/2007 02:07

Hi Everyone,
Chris you definitely are in my prayers. I know you'll share when you feel the time is appropriate. God knows and that is enough. May you feel his Presence while your undergoing the tests.

Sandy, I totally cleaned out my temp files and restarted and still have to log out and log back in to get here. I was going to contact B'Net today, but was called into work. I can't be called tomorrow, since it's an official day off for me, so I'll try contacting them. Is this circle suppose to look exactly the same as it did before B'Net did all the changes? If so, I'm ok, if not I must be doing something wrong. I know part of my problem is an ancient computer. Definitely on my Christmas list LOL.

Had a better day today, but I'm really tired. Because I'm on disability and medicare, I have a "wellness" nurse. Someone to oversee my medical care. Usually, I just listen to her once a month. She did ask me last time to keep her update on my medical tests. While I did that I also updated all my medical information. One question was did I use my inhaler more than 4 times in the last week. I used it a couple times a day. Well, the staff saw that and immediately tried to contact me. They left several messages but I was to tired to call. I tried once but had the wrong number. I did talk to someone briefly on Tues but stated I was late for work. Somehow, it was reported that I was in respitory distress and not answering their calls. I'm glad I called them back tonight because they were about to do a wellness check, meaning the police would have come to the house. They faxed my dr and stated they thought I was in severe trouble. Funny thing is that I called my dr yesterday for an appointment tomorrow and was told I had to wait until Tues or go to ER. I'm thinking I'm going to get a call from him tomorrow! Mike and I were thinking that if the police were called and no one was home they would have to break in. That would have been fun trying to explain to my landlord! Seriously though, I am having trouble breathing and this stomach thing won't go away. I know stress makes my asthma worse and I'm really stressing over the stomach which makes that feel worse. It like a vicious cycle. I think tomorrow will be a me day. Must take care of my body. It needs to be in good shape for June! That means I must say goodnight. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

Hi, I just joined today. I have lost 2 children, both in infancy, one due to being too much a preemie and the other due to anencephaly (born without a brain). My anencephalic baby boy, Caleb, was a twin, and although his twin is healthy, there is such an open wound wondering how it would have been with twin boys running around right now. I pray for all those here, because losing a child is something that creates so much fear, anger, doubt, skepticism, etc. I have gone through all of that. Time doesn't completely heal, time helps to scar over the hurt... but there are a lot of times that scar doesn't feel healed.

11/15/2007 12:42

Hi Cheryl (ckbryson), yes, its been too long since you last posted, hope you'll post more!
Aw, you had a special day, your Lisa's Anniversary, those days are always so hard to get through as well as the days leading up to them. Yes, only another Parent who has suffered the same loss could possibly relate or understand how we feel and that this is something we carry with us the rest of our lives.....we learn how to live with the pain.
So nice to see a Post from you again and please post here whenever, we do care. May God bless you,
Love & Hugs,

11/15/2007 12:49

Hello heart,
Thank you so much for posting here, we're always very grateful when someone who hasn't suffered this ultimate loss take's the time to post their prayers for us!
May God bless you and your family,
Love & Hugs,

11/15/2007 13:19

Hello eaglenest,
This is your Circle now and together we can all join hands to support, comfort, love and pray for each other as we struggle with our Journey of Grief. When we get tired, discouraged and the pain seem's insurmountable, we're all here to share it with each other, because we care! I'm so happy for you and your wife as well that God steered you to Beliefnet and also this Circle, here you can let out your feelings in a very safe haven and never be judged for what you say...its much better to let the pain out than to bottle it in and this is a very complicated grief.
So please make yourself at home here and know that we care,
Much love & Angel Hugs,

11/15/2007 13:24

Hi dear Chris,
My prayers are with you for a good outcome of the test,
Much love & Hugs,
