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.

Heavenly Father, Not only have we fathers and mothers lost children that we know are with You now but also through some very nasty divorces that Your children are used by either parent to get back at the other parent. This should not be! I pray Father for Your Guideance in this matter for all that it may apply to. I know it applies to me and it's been a hard struggle to understand even though I know in my heart Your Heavenly Host of Angels has continuosly been with Anna and Andrea. This I Pray for all in Jesus Precious Name AMEN!!!

to missvclay, alpal, and smile thank you so much for all your words of encouragement. You know God is like a drug. I go to Celebrate Recovery at my church on Friday nights, but this month with the holidays and my oldest daughter came home from the army i was out of town for two weeks so i missed it but i went this friday with a friend and when we came home we felt like we were high on God and life and it was wonderful. with all that was going on with my daughters i had forgotten to take time for me and God to just have some time to talk, sure i pray every morning and in the evening but worshiping him with friends in church just makes me feel, this may seem strange, but at home with him in his arms. So again thank you for all your prayers and love and i will not ever forget that our father is always there for us when we need him.

Chris, Thank you for your kindness. The cross that each of us has to bare is lightened when we share. I wish to lift each member of this circle up ask that God touch each life. I wish to share a scripture that has given me great strength and joy it is Isaiah 61:2-3 To proclaim the year of our Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort those who mourn and provide for those who grieve in Zion, to bestow on them a crown of beauty, instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of dispair. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness a planting of the Lord for the display of his splender.
God is using each of us to glorfy him and in return he is strengthening each of us for what ever may come next. I pray that we will continue to lift each other even as our pain lessens, there will come others that are in just as much need of prayer as we are today. I thank everyone, even those who may have said a silent prayer of healing for those who hurt. God bless everyone.

Dear Troubled, I think that it is wonderful that your are attending Celebrate Recovery. I too am attending Celebrate Recovery on Saturday Night. I don't know where you live, but that just made me think perhaps we are in the same town in Florida. I trying pray that you will be blessed thru and thru as you go through the 12 steps to recovery God Bless you

12/30/2007 19:49

Bill (eaglenest61) My heart goes out to both you and your wife for the lose of your three children,Brad, Samantha and Chris. Even thou I lost my son, due to natural causes, and that is difficult enough, but to be mourning three children all at one time. My heart breaks for your loss and I will lift you up in prayer daily, not only in this prayer circle, but as I pray daily in my devotional. For your precious wife I will pray for her dilligently now: Father in Heaven we know that you are the all knowing Father and even thou this child of yours is mourning her children and probably asking where was God on that night that my children were taken. Father I pray that you will strength her, give her your peace that when she lies down to rest that rest will come and she will know that it is because you love her that she can actually rest . We can always ask God why did my children have to die? why not me instead. We will never know the reasons why, we must just lean fully on God in his wisdow and Mercy. My heart breaks for you, May God Bless your family.

Alpal, no i am not in Florida I am Idaho across the country.

To all who have lost I am very sorry for your sorrow and it has helped me alot to know that there is a place like this to talk about my feelings and knowing some one accually knows how I feel and can relate. God has really blessed each and everyone of us in one way or another and has shown us that we are not alone. I feel God sent me to this site to show me the love and to share my story. As I read some of the story's mine seems not to hurt so bad as I wish and pray for everyone else so some how it is healing in a way. So I just want to Bless everyone of you and for you to know my prayers are with all of you.


12/31/2007 08:28

Troubled, thanks for your reply, and it just goes to show us all that God has a way to reach each of us right where we live. I will be praying for each of the hurting and thanking God that his people everywhere are Cebrating Recovery. How is the weather? I'm sure it is probably cold, while Florida is still great for going to the beach. God Bless

To all of my new friends in the circle of Prayer, I lift my cup wishing each and everyone of you a Happy New Year. It is now 12:51AM in Florida January 1, 2008. I wish I could remember the words to this precious song that I just heard by Janet Pascal, the gist is that her child has died and gone to heaven and she is asking how are things at home? No more crying, no more pain, laughter of little children all around and our Heavenly father taking care of each of his children. I think that image is a beautiful one to dwell on as we enter this new year. We do miss them but knowing that they are with God, if we had to lose them who better to leave them with. God bless each and everyone as we embark on a new year and new beginnings. Love and Prayers Joyce

My new friend alpal, thank you for your prayers and support. It has been so hard moving into the New Year; but apparently this is the chosen path for us. My wife and I praise God for people like you. With people like you, we know we will be ok...

Troubled, and all who suffer a lost loved one; I pray for you and I...

My Father in heaven. This night I come to you on the close of the first day of the New Year in prayer. I pray for not only the loss of my three children, killed by a drunk driver in October 07, but I pray for al here tonight that have lost a loved one in the past. I can say I truely know how they feel, for as I said I lost 3 children.
Father, we know not the reason you have called our loved ones home; but thy will be done....
Father as we move into this new year; grant us the strength, wisdom and will power to bare this cross we must bare. Help us to always look up to you for strength and guidance. Let the loss of our loved ones not be in vain, but let something good come out of these losses.
God bless all our friends here tonight.
For it is in the name of Your son I pray....Amen

Hi Everyone,

So sorry I have been MIA. I'm still having trouble with B'Net, I have to log off another site to be able to post here. There are times when it is just too troublesome to do that. It has taken me a long time to bounce back from my recent hospitalization. I still get pretty fatigued and spend most of the days downstairs, away from my computer. It takes too much energy to go up and down so once I'm down I usually stay there.

My work schedule right now is real light. 9 hrs this week, 6 next. Not my choice but theirs. I would really try to pick more hours up, but I think I need the time off. I am still so tired from the holidays.

Welcome to Trouble and Joyce. Like my sisters have said we welcome you with sadness. Congratulations Trouble on having so many days sober. Today was my quit day for smoking and I know how hard that is. I can only imagine what you went through in the beginning.

NTG, bed is calling. Just wanted to wish everyone a Joyful and Blessed New Year. I don't use happy because that emotion depends on our circunstances, which many times are don't conducive to happiness. Joy and Blessings come from our Father and we can always tap into them. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

eaglenest61 thank you for your prayer and I am sorry for your loss I could not even emagin loosing all my children because i only had three. My girls were a big part of my suport. They went thru a lot and still are even though they are grown. My grandson looks and acts like my son did at his age we have held up pictures and they look so much alike and he even has his name for his middle name (Michael). But I really loved your prayer and I pray for each and every one. I know that all our loved ones are in Gods Palace waiting for us to come home so one day we will be together again so that warms my heart.

1/2/2008 13:02

Joyce, I looked up the song you refered to , I have not been able to here the whole song yet but I'm trying to find it. A gospel singer by the name of Janet Paschal from the album sweet life 1998. song name "how are things at home".

I also need prayers still for Mikes mom. She is getting moved soon to a place called "Crossroads house" It is a place that the sick go to die in a wonderfull "home like" place with round the clock care. You can only go there if you have less than 3 months to live! Pray that god is ready to take her and please NO MORE PAIN. she turned 80 on Mon. She says she ready and is loved deeply by all her family. I can find nothing else to do for her but to pray for her.

Smile, I am glad that you want the CD . The name of the CD is The Best of Janet Paschal from the homecoming series. Gaither Gospel Series. If you find it or maybe I should say when you find it I know my favorites are #5 God will make a Way #9 Written in Red #11 The Body and the Blood and my very favorite is #15 How are things at Home. Warning if you do not want to be touched by God's love or you do not want to cry, you may want to listen when your spirits are at their highest so you can get the full joy from the words to each song. I shared this with my daughter and she did not get the full gist. Some people like the more upbeat gospel music, when I listen I hear from God. I hope you find it and will enjoy it.

To all of my friends in this circle I pray that our Heavenly Father will touch each life today and bless each and every one as we continue on the road to recovery. God has truly been with me as I sob and seek his answers to a lot of questions and I know he will do the same for each of you. My Love and Prayers for all.
