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.

Hello tonysmom, and a warm welcome to our circle of love, support, prayer, and healing. I am so very sorry to read of your loss. I promise you will find other angel moms here who can relate to grief and pain. For we know all too well there is nothing worse than losing a beloved child. When we do a part of our heart goes with that child and the healing of our shattered hearts we know is ongoing. But with prayer and support we somehow learn ways to continue on our endless journey.
Love and prayers,

Dear Angel Moms, Please forgive me for being MIA for such a long time. I’ve been dealing with a lot of health issues, plus trying to continue helping others in our family who are also dealing with a lot of health issues. I know that it is best to take care of myself, so that I can do what I can for others, but there are times when we don’t do what we know is best; especially as we get older. Sometimes it is just so difficult to let go and fully rely on God to help us through those difficult life storms; and that can and usually does lead to more problems.

For the last several weeks, I’ve been trying to get rid of this flu bug, while helping take care of our 94 year old aunt who has an injury to her foot. She has undergone two procedures; the most recent being done last week. There is no circulation getting to the foot so we are continuing to pray for healing for healing if it is within God‘s will. In addition to that, my niece Felecia’s father had one of his legs amputated above the knee a few weeks ago, but seems to be doing ok thus far. My sister, Pearl, has her hands full; taking Felecia to dialysis twice a week while going to see about her hubby daily, until he has enough healing to come home. We both take turns going to check on auntie daily and do what she will allow us to do for her [J] and continue helping out with Felecia’s daughter, Ashley, who is now in the third grade and doing well. Felecia continues to improve, but had a bad fall a couple of days ago. She is just sore, but doing ok. As for me, I still haven’t been able to refrain from eating or drinking anything after twelve AM, so the rest of my lab work is still pending. Hopefully, I will get it done one day this week. I still am not doing as much walking as I should, but will try to do better in the future. I am doing better on quitting smoking because the Chantix that my doctor prescribed for me makes me cough if I try to smoke. But, I still feel the stress of not being able to smoke; so I am asking for prayer on this, as well as for my beloved family members mentioned above.

Those of you who have been here for a while may remember that Auntie is my mother’s only sister who took care of her in their home until the end. So, it is so hard to see her in so much pain. I am asking that you say a special prayer that God will ease her physical pain and help us to take care of her needs. She will have a nurse coming to her home daily to change the dressing on her foot, while Pearl, hubby David, and I try to take care of her other needs. Pearl’s other adult daughter lives with Auntie, but works and doesn’t get home until five or six in the evening. But it is a blessing to know that someone is there to check on her throughout the night God bless her.

Well, now that I have rambled on and on, I guess I will call it a night. I pray the Lord will be with all angel moms/dads/ and their families - giving peace within on valley days, and fond memories on hilltop days. My prayers are with you always.

Love and Angel Hugs,

Diane's mom

Hello tonysmom,
Welcome to the group, I too have only been here a short while, but I have found such comfort in knowing that there are others who have gone thru what I have and are willing to lift me up for healing. We will lift you up to our Heavenly Father and pray for your healing.

I am sorry for all of the trials and tribulations that seem to be plaguing your family and I know that you are in constant prayer, I will join in and pray with you that God will touch each member of your family and heal their bodies. I know how difficult it is to stop smoking I have been there and I will pray for God to deliver you from such an adicting habit.

I pray for all of those whom have lost a child I know how it feels when that day comes.My oldest daughter Deirdra was stillborn 2 days after my 19th birthday.We will be celebrating her on feb 19th she would have been 16 this year.And although I have learn that God works in misterious ways I thank him everyday for the 2 other beautiful daughters he has givin me.And that with his love I will someday see her again and hold her in my arms.I keep you all in my prayers that you will feel the same soon and know it was meant to be.

1/31/2008 08:16

Hello Azna,
I'm so sorry to read of your own loss, precious little Deirdra. You carried her beneath your heart and now you carry her in your heart, always. You're so right, you will see her again one day and never to part again!
What a joy your other two children must be to you, very happy for you, :).
Thank you so much for your prayers, may God bless you, we need them and appreciate them so much too. Know that our's are with you,
Love & Hugs,

1/31/2008 08:23

Anza, I am glad to see that you have chosen to share with us. If there is anyone who can understand where you are coming from it will be those of us who have lost children of our own and we know that God hears and answers prayer. During the coming month I pray that God will lift you up and bless you in everything that you do. Feb. 19th will be a sad day for a while but knowing how God has blessed you and the promise to see Deirdra again is a promise you can hold on to. Give those beautiful daughters extra hugs and kisses.

2/1/2008 08:36

Good morning to all of my new friends in this prayer circle. The beginning of a new month and I pray it will be a new beginning for many of us on our road to recovery from loss. I want to take this time to thank all who have been praying for me and to let you know that God does answer prayers, he his filling my lonely hours with wonderful people who genuinely care and I thank him for that. He is also preparing me for something greater in my life and for that I thank him too.Have a blessed day Joyce

Dear Angel Moms,
This is the first time I have posted, though I have stopped by many times to read. My daughter Emily was 15 when she died suddenly in June of 2006. I am blessed with much support from family and friends, but I feel great love in this circle and wanted to add my love and support to the group. Many times I have prayed for all those who post here and have been lifted up by the support and prayers offered here. I know each of you understands the pain that continues to be part of my daily life.
To tonysmom, a friend of my son’s also died of a brain tumor just over two years ago. I will include you in my prayers, because I know it is a tough thing to have to watch someone you love go through.
May God bless each of you.

Hello dear Susan,
I'm thrilled that you are now a member of this Circle of Love, just very sorry as we all are, for the reason why, the loss of your precious Emily.
I'm very happy for you that you have a great support system around you and now you have another one, all of us know here the raw, biting grief of losing a child. There is no pain worse than a Parent losing a child and only those who have can truly understand what we are going through, how it affects us on a daily basis.
Thank you so much for your prayers, we all surely need them and our prayers, support and love are with you Susan, so please post again,
Love, prayers & Hugs,

For all of the parents that are remembering their children who were lost during the month of February, I pray that as you remince that you will also fondly remember how God has brought you thru the tough times to today and share God's love with someone today. Spread your angel wings and take in another hurting soul. Psalms 126:5-6 says Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping carrying seed to sow will return with songs of joy carrying sheaves with him. Thank you Father for your word. Amen

Dear Sandy and Joyce, ~ Thanks so much for praying for me. :) I am feeling much better today and the fever seems to have broken. So I am feeling mighty thankful this morning and though energy is still low, I am hopeful that the worst is over. So again thanks to Sandy, Joyce and all who read my prayer request and prayed for me and family, for we know God hears all prayers that are prayed from the heart. I continue to pray heartfelt prayers daily for all angel moms/dads who have lost a precious child; whether recent or much time has passed. I do however, say a special prayer for all who are dealing with a recent loss where the grief and pain is 24/7. For we angel moms who have made it through that awful stage know all too well what a difficult place that is. When I was there a little over eleven years ago, I thought I would never find the will to go on. But because of the many prayers that were prayed for me; especially when I couldn’t pray for myself, I made it through that awful stage. It took around three years for me to crawl up that tremendous mountain, sometimes falling all the way back down. But God just wouldn’t give up on me! God always sends the help and support we need whether we realize it or not and it always arrives right on time … that is … God‘s time! Only God knows when that time will come for each of us; but when it does, you will know it, and feel like a heavy burden has been lifted off your shoulders! And that’s a wrap!

I gotta go check on Auntie and take her McDonald’s sausage biscuit and large coffee. Just remember … Hold on to God’s unchanging hand, ‘cause God won’t give up on any of us because of the prayers that are being prayed on our behalf. And you are reading this from one who thought the 24/7 pain would NEVER, EVER go away! To God be the Glory!

Love & Prayers,
Verna [aka LOVE2]:)
