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.

Dear Chris. Thank you so much for posting the Special Date list for January, it is so helpful to all of us.
Dear Jane, I am so glad that your health is improving and that you are not working so many hours, I know that you need the extra hours but you also need to recuperate and feel stronger and then you can go back to work your regular hours.

Hi Everyone:

My life has definitely changed since my last post. I now have a full time job! I wasn't actively seeking one yet, but I received a phone call asking me to interview for a position. Today was my first day of training. The training class lasts for 6 weeks, then it's about 6 more weeks of being observed and our worked will be checked daily. The company is an agent for credit unions and small banks. We process the loans for them. My head was swimming when I came home tonight. So much to learn in such a short time. I thought I would have trouble with my shoulders and upper back from sitting at the computer all day, but I was fine. This is a huge step for me because it means I give up all my disability benefits. That was my goal when I went back to college.

I also have been smoke free for one week now. I'm taking Chantix and it really works. The urges are getting further apart and easier to handle. It also helps that my state went smoke free in Jan. No smoking in any public building or even close to an opening to a building.

Charlene, know that I'm thinking about you today and I pray that you got through the day feeling the Pressence of our Lord.

Sandy, I pray you are feeling better. I'm so sorry you are sick. Heavenly Father, I pray in Jesus' Name that Sandy would begin to feel better and all signs of pneumonia would leave her body. I pray that You would restore her strength and bring her back to us quickly. I pray for those close to her that the infection would not spread to others. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Thank you Chris for keeping us updated with the special list. For all the new -commers Chris is posting all our special days, when our child was born and when he/she became an angel. If you want to be included you need to e-mail her or post it here.

Trouble, sounds like things are really falling into place for you. I am so happy for you. Joyce, it appears you are picking up the slack in helping the newbies. Thank you.

Selva, thank you for your prayers and encouragement. I didn't expect to go to full time this quickly, however I know that God opened this door. Archangel Michael, I am sorry for your loss of your precious Gary. Yes the pain stays with us, but not as intense as it was 10 yrs ago. Suffering does have a way of bringing us closer to our Lord. Talk2god, thank you for your prayers. It means a lot to us when someone who has not lost a child pops in here to pray for us.

I think I caught everyone up on my news so it's off to bed for me. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

1/8/2008 13:12

To jpot and selva, thank you for your encouragement and the blessings you have bestowed on each of us.

Sandy I am sorry that you are feeling bad and have pneumonia, I plead the blood of Christ on you today and know that in God's infinite wisdom he will touch your body and heal you. We may not be able to physcally touch each other, but God said where two or more are gathered in his name he is in the mist, so we are all believing for your healing and lift you up. God Bless

1/8/2008 15:49

Dear Jane. What a terrific news, I Thank God for listening to our prayers, I will keep on praying so that all your training classes will go just fine, I am sure that you will do great in your new job, remember "Prayers work". Congratulations for quiting smoking, my doctor sugested the Chantix to me and I felt it was another "magic pill" but it seems to work for you, I might give it a try. Love and prayers my dear sister. Selva

1/8/2008 15:54

Dear Joyce. I am so glad that you keep on posting here, this is such a lonely road that it helps so much when we find understanding, and only us , who have gone through this tragedy are able to understand the pain. I lost my only child, my daughter Solange at age 20 on Aug 15, 2002 to a car accident, I also died that day and I haven't been able to live again, like many people (who don't understand this pain) often say the awful words of "life goes on", they don't realize that life stops, only God helps us to go through this. Thank you so much for your prayers , our dear sister Sandy really needs it. My love and prayers. Selva

1/9/2008 13:31

Hi selvam, I think that without this outlet I would become even more lonely than I already am. I miss by son but God says that I can continue on so he has directed my footsteps to this site and all of those who have lost a child. I thank Him daily.

I hope that this message will find you feeling better today and that God will continue to touch and heal you physically as well as emotionally. To all I pray that you will be lifted up today and Praise God for all of his mercy. Love and Prayers Joyce

1/10/2008 13:27


I have not heard from you and I am sure you are probably recuperating from the pneumonia. I will continue to pray that God will grant you a speedy recovery. If anyone hears from Sandy please share.

Love in Christ

1/13/2008 14:03

Hello my dear AngelMoms, Dads, sisters, it feel's so good to be able to post again, today is the first day I've gotten out of my PJ's and got you know that mean's I'm feeling much better! Just still a little weak, need to get my strength back after not eating much last week, but my appetite is back now, it won't take long to get it back, :). Thank you SO much for your prayers for me, it truly warmed my heart to see your posts with your prayers for me and the e-mails, e-Cards I received, you're all such loving, amazing women, who in your own grief, reached out to me and I ask our loving God to bless you all!
I'll get caught up shortly on the posts, I just wanted to let you know that I'm much better and very grateful to all for your prayers!!
Love to all & {{Hugs}}

1/13/2008 20:56

Sandy, It is great to see you up and about God's work lifting up hurting parents and loved ones. Take care that you do not overdo just yet. We will continue to pray for your speedy recovery all in one accord said Amen, it is so.

1/14/2008 01:01

Hi Everyone:
Just checking in before another busy week. Work is going well, it's just a lot of learning and computer work. By the time I get home the last thing I want to do is spend time on the computer. My eyes just won't let me.

Sandy, so good to see your feeling better. Remember to take it slowly, no relapses.

Selva, the way Chantix works is that it takes the fun out of smoking. It's tastes nasty and has no effect. Having said that, I still want to smoke. I just haven't and I think Chantix and much prayer (on other's part not mine!) have made the difference. It's a three month program and they offer help online and by telephone. It really is a complete smoking cessation program. After three months when I know the Chantix isn't working any longer will I still be a non smoker. I want to say yes, but the desire is still there. In my state, it's just too inconvenient to be a smoker these days. Everything is outdoors and so many feet from a public building or outdoor facility where children are. I think it's something like 200 ft from a public park. I know a lot of people have stopped just because of the new laws. I already knew I was quitting so I set Jan 1 as my date also.

Joyce, you're welcome. I'm so glad you feel at home here so quickly. Seems like you and Selva have kept things going while Sandy was sick. That's the great thing about B'net sites. There will always be someone to pick up when someone else can't. OK, that didn't even sound right to me. It's time for bed! Love and gratitude to all, Jane

1/14/2008 08:53

jpot,Thank you for your welcoming. God has many intercessors and we are all included and if we did not intercede when needed we would not be doing our God given job.

Selva, I guess that I missed something, You are trying to stop smoking, I did that for years, trying to do it by myself and it was probably one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do. Let me urge you to continue trying and add to your efforts a lot more prayer for deliverence. When you think you want a smoke ask for deliverance and drink a tall glass of water it helps make the desire go away. I have been smoke free for two years and it truly gets easier each day, but I had to do like I suggested to you. I did have a little divine intervention, but the end result is that I no longer smoke and I feel like a new person.

Sandy, I will continue to lift you in Prayer that you will not have a relapse andd will get stronger each day. For all of our friends and angel moms and dads who are ill today I pray that God will touch each and everyone and heal according to his loving mercy.

Everyone have a blessed day. God Bless

1/14/2008 22:42

To offer a little encouragement! I too smoked for 26 years and quit. It has been 7 years now and I have no desire. I feel better, have more energy and no longer get bronchitis or colds like I did. I keep up with the youngsters and can play with my grandaughter. If it only gave me an extra 5 years of life it was worth it to quit. And then there is the cost!
On a sad note, Mikes mom died on Saturday the 12th. She went peacefully and without pain, to be with the lord. and Stephanie, and her husband. I hope there having a grand reunion.
I have a busy week with the wake tues, funeral wed, and my daughters gall bladder surgery on thurs, and then the recovery! She won't be able to lift the baby for a while. Send prayers!!!!!!!!

1/15/2008 08:37

Smile, I'm sorry to hear of your loss, and it is good to know that Mike's mom is in glory now, and we all know that will not completely heal yours or Mike's pain but when you reflect it will help. My prayers are with you in the coming days and I will lift you up and ask for God's strength for each new day. I will also be praying for your daughter as she goes thru surgery and the healing afterwards. Father I pray you will guide the hands of the surgeon as he peforms this gallbladder surgery, give him steady hands and sharp mind that all will go well and the healing of your child will begin. Father we lift this entire family up for your healing. In Jesus name I pray Amen

No one can imagine the pain endured, no one can feel the instant loss of a loved one, no one can feel the anger, sadness and emotional roller coaster of violence unless you have lived to lose a loved one to the senseless act of violence. My son Eugene Patino was murdered at the age of 34. The Lord blessed me with allowing me to witness my son accept Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, on Easter 2006. So I know he is in heaven, and I don't have to worry about him anymore. I know my son Gene is in a much better place waiting for me to join him, but the pain of living without him at times is unbearable. I miss him so much. I pray daily for Gods strength, grace and comfort to get through another day. I feel close to my son Gene, because I know that as soon as I die, I will be with him. Until that time, I will live my life the way God would want me to. Please keep me in your prayers. As I will keep you all in mine. God Bless You.

1/16/2008 10:41

shorty_50 about your post on 1/16/08. You are right, I know for a fact that I'm not so sure how I would handle losing a child to violence, but I can pray for you that God will heal the hurt.

Heavenly Father I lift up this father to you that you will touch his heart and grant him your peace. He is right in that his children are in a better place, but Lord you know that does not always make us feel better, just knowing that we can talk with you and get your blessed assurance that you will carry us thru each day is a mighty fortress. I pray for your added strength and wisdom for this father for each new day. Amen

Shorty_50 I hope you have found a good support group to help you thru the hardest times that you will face. If you have access to Celebrate Recovery I highly reccommend that you see them out and join for support thru these hard times. Hospice also has a program to help grieving family members.

1/16/2008 12:02

Hello dear shorty,
So sorry to read of the senseless loss of your precious son Gene. You're among good company here, there are other Moms who've also lost their children to murder, with the different emotions it brings up in a Mom. All of us though know only too well of the intense pain and grief of losing a much-loved child, so please post here whenever you like, the Journey is a little easier when you have friends walking with you,
Love, prayers & Hugs,

1/16/2008 12:17

Hi dear Joyce,
Thanks so much for your ongoing prayers, they are truly appreciated and know that mine are with you and everyone else here at this 'Circle of love' we sometimes call it, :) I'm so delighted that you've made yourself at home here and helped our dear Selva out while I was sick and offline, thank you! You're a dear sister, reaching out to others in your own loss and grief. You're a blessing!
Love, prayers & Hugs,

1/16/2008 12:29

Hi dear Jane,
Wow, a full-time job, that's wonderful, very happy for you! That is good news and I pray your health stay's well so you can keep it and for your self too! Have you both started planning for the big day?
Love & Hugs,

1/16/2008 12:35

Dear Chris, sorry to read about your mother-in-law's passing, I know your Stephanie was there to welcome her home!
Oh, that's too bad about your other daughter, yes, of course she's in my prayers, may the Divine Physician Himself guide the hands of the Surgeon and may He give her a fast recovery.
Yes, thanks for posting January's dates,
Love & Hugs,

Blessings and New Beginnings! Loss with a child is so overpowering, that to loose oneself in this depth of pain is great...when it affects even those remaining the behaviors are far beyond those who are near...It has taken me four years to understand this death of my child, Michael Cheynne Miller, and to see after so much destruction and loss for this loose the epitomy of one so loyal, dedicated to protecting family was even harder to bear...realization cost this family so much despair, death was eminent..for as a mnother you choke on the pain, and to live takes so much to hold on..understanding is not always easily or readily understood by those who have not suffered its barb...My condolences, and my request is to find reason to direct the other children effected by loss of father, and brother...the years have not made it easier..we live...trying to find self again...Empathy and Support to help the after affects have been little...Prayer is deep, relating to others iss still silent...God Bless..Apache
