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 dear Sandy, and thank you for your kind words. Yes, it always warms my heart and gives me a measure of peace and blessings to be able to come here and embrace and share with all my sisters here who have lost a beloved child. And I see we have quite a list of special dates for March. Thanks again to Chris for posting them so that all will remember to say a special day prayer for each angel mom on their special day and try to submit posts to them when possible. We all know how difficult special days can be. Prayer always helps, and it helps to be reminded that we are not alone; especially on our special day.

Lisa, you know you are in my heartfelt prayers today on your beloved Aaronís birthday. Even as I type this, I can see his smile in my mindís eye. Every now and then, I come across his photo on one of the pages here at Beliefnet. And when I do, I think of you both and say a special prayer. Remember that if the tears come it's ok; but it's also ok to smile and recall those fond memories the two of you shared and will share again. :) We know our precious and beloved children are in heaven with God; just not at the time we would have chosen. God knows that each of us would gladly have given our life to save our child without hesitation had we been given a choice. Unfortunately, we didnít have a choice; but praise God, we do have hope, and the blessed assurance that we will embrace our precious and beloved children again someday Ö Forevermore! To God be the glory!
Godís peace and blessings,
Love & (((Angel Hugs)))

From: Prayers and Poetry for the Bereaved by Verna R. Clay

Ö And, the Holy Spirit said, ďGo write this down!Ē

Godís Great Harvest

God planted seeds in His earthly garden,
Satan, out of envy, did the same.
Godís seeds grew love, joy, and
Compassion Ö
Satanís grew hate, grief and pain.
Satanís seeds tried to suffocate,
All the good works that God had done.
Fertilizing the seeds of hate, grief and pain,
Causing God to send His Son Ö
To weed out all the hate, grief and pain,
That Satan and his demons had sown.
God's Son sowed the Ultimate Seeds of: Hope,
Joy, Compassion, Faith, and Love ...
Before ascending to His Heavenly Throne!
Someday there will be a Great Harvest,
In Godís Garden of Love you see Ö
Filled with eternal love, joy, and happiness
Only then will our souls be set free!
So as Satan keeps sowing his seeds of destruction,
His seeds of hate, grief and pain Ö
We will continue sowing love, joy, and compassion,
Each day Ö in Jesusí Name!

I have a saying that comes to mind about what susan said.
"Don't cry because it's over,
smile because it happened"
Yes our lives are forever changed because of our loss. We have learned to appreciate life and know how fast it can change. We live different and look at others who treat their children bad with disbelief wondering how ? I would give anything in the world to have my child and you don't care about your's!
I work in a local store and I see and hear adults yelling and swearing and treatening their children. It just scares me to death. Why aren't they holding those children near and dear? Why don't they realize? What can I do to change the world ? I ask myself.
I only wish I could give them One hour of pain like we have had and then give their children back to them. Ok I'm done. It drives me crazy.
Pray for a fast recovery for my kitty.
To March dates I have you in my thoughts and prayers.
Love Chris

Hi dear Chris,
YES, thanks so much again for posting the special days for this month!
Oh, I know what you mean, I've seen it myself with parents and to hear them cursing and swearing at their children break's my heart.

Well, it has been a very long time sisters. I have you all in my thoughts and prayers every single day. I have been on a very hard road and still am. There have been sooo many losses in my life recently and then when I come to read here, it is more loss. I should be more supportive I know. I am upset with myself for not being stronger but it is just the way it is right now. Thank you so much Sandy for e-mailing to me every single day. I love to feel still attached somehow. You are a great friend. I would love to say I am doing great and have been on a wonderful vacation somewhere but I think you all know where I have been. Seeing Wes's special day posted (thank you Chris :) reminds me of what I am missing here. Please know how much I think of you and hurt for all of you too. My prayers are with you dear friends.
Love, Kathy

Hello Everyone,

So sorry for being MIA for so long. Sandy, when I read your post about the school shooting I realized it's been several weeks since I last posted. You ask a good question, "Why so many school shootings in the States?" Maybe because guns are so accessible. The other day I saw a discussion on TV about the media's responsibility for how they cover such tragedies. Maybe if the shooter's name and pic wasn't told and shown it would discourage those seeking to go out in a flame of glory.

Welcome to everyone who is new. You have found a circle of love. We understand the need to have time to grieve and how our friends and co workers think we should be over it. I think Miss V said it best, "We never get over it, we learn to live with it." Your grief won't be 24/7 forever, it just seems that way. Joy will come again but there will always be times of sadness.

I'm doing ok these days, just a little bored. I lost my job last Monday by mutual agreement. I know I need to find a new one quickly but don't have much energy right now.

Carrieann, what a wonderful poem, especially from someone who hasn't experienced that type of loss. Thank you so much for posting it.

Miss V, as always your poems are so appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to post them.

Kathy, glad to see you post again. I know you have had an extremely hard time for quite a while. I'm praying you will find the comfort you need from your Father's Heart.

Has anyone heard from Charlene? She seems to have disappeared from us. I miss her.

Even though I don't post often these days, you are all in my prayers. Love and gratitude to all, Jane

does anyone still keep in touch with hothoosiers? I really would like to send her an email.

There are not a lot of new posts, but I am sure that is not because no-one has lost a child, but that perhaps they do not know about us. Today Father I will pray for all of your hurting children everywhere, after the loss of a child or any family member and I pray Father that you will strengthen them and when they are in doubt that you are still in control let us lift them up to you for you to bless them. Amen

I pray for all parents who have lost a child. I pray that you find strength in this miracle called life and understanding in the reality of death. You must truly and without hesitation believe that our destiny does not end here on earth. God Bless you All.

My name is Annie: I have lost 3 children. I don't know how I get around everyday and function other then the Grace of God. I ask for prayers, as I do believe they are the only thing that will help me to continue to go on. Blessings

To all the parents wo have lost children no matter what age. Also to the rest of the family and extended family and friends. I have 2 very close friends who between the two of them have lost 3 aby girls all under 13 months of age. They died of Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

All you lovely people are in my prayers and I send you all the love that I can. If I could put my arms around you and take away your pain I would.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do!

Please touch these people with Your love and support God!!

This goes out to all who have lost a beloved child; but especially to our two angel moms, Sandy and Cindy whose special date is today. May our Lord and Savior give you fond memories and wrap you in His love and peace throughout today and in the days, months, and years ahead. If I could take away your sad memories, God knows I would. :( But only God can do that and in His own time. I do believe there is a time for everything and our time of sadness will be replaced someday with the joy of holding our beloved children in our arms again forevermore!
Much love and (((HUGS))) from heaven!
