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.

The true nighmare I had for about 20 years while my children were growing up was my child drowning. My heart goes out to you. We are here to take a small piece of hurt away from you and help you carry your cross. It will be a little lighter for you to carry now, as we share in your pain and your journey through grief that never (goes away) It changes as we go, learn,and trust. As we approach Easter I am thinking of God and picture him starting anew! With all our children gathered around him healthy, whole and alive in his presence. Dancing with the lord.
I see a few new names and dates and as soon as I get my other computer back I will add them to to special dates list.
God bless all of you and help me in prayer for Mikes sisters (Cindy)family as they face many trials during this time.
I also have news! I'm going to be a grandma again!

I have a testamonial story for you.
As Mikes mom lay in her hospital bed about a week and a half before she died, she talked alot to God. At times it was like her and God as if we were not there.
She told my daughter Carol that when she has her next child !
We all looked at each other and that was that. She (mom) knew before she (Carol)even got pregnant that the baby was comming soon. God told her!
This is no lie ! When you question God? is there really ? wow if not then explain this to me will ya!
You know I believe but sometimes, ya know? As soon as she told me I said Grandma knew! God told her!
I told you about the dimes I find (recieve) Carols boyfriend (father of baby) god dimes for about a week before they even knew about the baby. (Thanks mama!) Chris
Have a great Easter

i lost my son in nov. he died from transplant rejection. he lived for almost 3 years after after a bone marrow transplant, i always thought he would get better and come home, he was 31 years old. i am so sad. it seems like no one in my house understands why i can't just pick up and go on. i try not to cry or stay in bed, i have been to the doctor. she seems to understand. i am so tired of being alone with this sadness.please pray for me. thank you christy

christysullivan, Never do I want you to think that no one understands the pain and agony that you are experiencing at this time. I too lived a lifetime with a child who was terminally ill, and he was such a blessing to my life. As parents we can see and feel the blessings, especially when we are the primary caregivers, God gives us these special children to enrich our lives and to teach us of his undying love for us. I truly pray for you today that you will call upon Jesus to help you thru these very rough times. I know when I was having thoughts and fears he told me, I am here and you will have good days and bad days but they will pass and you will seek me early in the morning and I will meet you and heal you. Please be good to yourself and seek God today and everyday, so that he can help your healing process. Our children are very special no matter what the age. My son had muscular dystrophy and the doctors told us he would not live to be 13 years old and he was with me until he was 30 years old. Believe me you did what you felt you had to do to keep your son safe and well, but now that he has gone to be with Jesus rejoice that he is in a better place and prepare for the day when you will see him again, it will come.

I am in need of prayers at this time because I have lost several babies in the last year due to miscarriages. My first one was lost 2 yrs ago on 3/17/06, the set of twins were lost on 11/18/06 and 12/27/06 and the last one I lost was on 9/4/07. I am really having a hard time with all this heartache. They are all my angel babies.

3/26/2008 13:44

I pray that the King of glory bless, comfort and keep all who have lost a child. May his spirt keep company with you that you may find peace. May the God of creation be a "rock of habitation to which you may continually come". I pray your strength in the LORD and your faith does not fail.Be gracious to us all LORD do not let grief consume us. Let us trust in the LORD with heart mind body and soul and lean not to our human understanding. In Jesus name AMEN
In 2000 I lost my own daughter to a senseless murder. She left 1 child who is a constant joy to me. It's so hard to go on but you must and live the best life you can so that you may have the hope of seeing her in paradise someday. GOD BLESS

AS i write this morning about our sadness in losing a child, I had a hard nights sleep. A 20 year old girl in my town had a baby at home and a friend of hers took it to the hospital and left it there one hour old. I know the girl and she has a child that her mother has custody of. Please pray for the well being of this little girl.
Mikes brother in-law has heart problems and needs our prayes ongoing for a while. Ill keep you posted as it arises.
Thank you and I pray for all the lost babies, the ones in heaven and the ones that are lost. Chris

When I was 22 yr old I lost my baby's to ectopic pregnancy twice this happened to me in one year. I have not really cried over it. My heart cries every day for my children. I lost one in the right tube in Oct. and lost 2 in May of the same year. I am now 43, I lost something very special to me and unable to cry. Oh how I pray for Jesus to take the pain I carry with me. It has lessen in the years, but I still hurt in my heart and ask Jesus Why he took them. In July 07 I had to have a full Hysterectomy. My soon to be husband has 2 daughter but they are grown and each has a child. Being Step Mom and Step Grandma is not the same. I pray that my past be given and not let it affect me. I don't want to be bitter.

I'm sorry for your loss. May I make a suggestion? Cry! Why not ? are you trying to just go on and forget it? As all angel moms will tell you they have not forgotten, we just learn how to go on the way things are, but never forget. You could join a local grief group, and/or you can share your pain here. We understand, and will be here when you have pain and when you have joy. When your alone and feeling sad, go for a car ride or in the country, and cry, scream kick whatever makes you feel better. It helps to release some anger. Chris

To all of my friends here at this site, I know that it has been a while since I posted, but after reading tonight I felt that I should say a prayer for each person on this site. Heavenly Father hear the cries of your children, these parents, and comfort them as only you can. Father we know that our children are with you, but you have so intriquitely made us that we cannot forget but you have given us the way to heal and carry on. Father we thank you for that and I pray you will bless each person here at this site. Amen

To Shaner and all of us who have lost our children.
I lost my #1 son @ age 23 in 1978 then in 1998 I lost my #2 son then in 1999 I lost my 18 month old Grandson.
I cannot begin to tell you of my grief when I lost my #1 son and was so devastated. Jesus provided what I truly needed in so many ways. One that I will always be grateful for is a lady that came to me that I never met to sit with me and introduce me to an organization called "Compassionate Friends" consists of only parents who have lost a child. There is where I could talk and I didn't have to explain my feelings as everyone understood my pain. Talking is what I learned is what helps to heal us along with the FAITH and BELIEF that we need to have, even if a little, Jesus will help to increase it as he helps us to heal.
I have been told that I should write a book and as I sit here thinking about the many parents who are in such pain trying to cope with their loss, I now see that I must sit down and write my book. even if it is only for my family.
Jesus presented other parents who have lost their child and were at a los as to how to begin to heal. I consequently started a chapter for "Compassionate Friends" in a city that had none that my job relocated me to. God works in mysterious ways and sometimes it is beyond our understanding but only KNOW that HE is ALWAYS with you and knows your pain as HE knows every hair on your body.
Knowing you are not alone in your pain is a great comfort and having outside support is essential to the healing process.
My prayer for Shaner and all of us parents who have lost our children, is for Jesus to provide for your needs, for comfort and solace in this very difficult time.
The loss of my #1 son helped to prepare me for my other losses and I am thankful that I grew from it.
God Bless!

My step-son passed on in Sept. at the age of 21. He was 2/10ths of a mile from home. He had a fiance and a 3 week old daughter at that time. He leaves a Mother and myself, father and his wife, a fiance and dtr, and a sister and her fiance. The one thing that helps with allowing you to find happiness, is from author..Neale Donald Walsh...he said that you will stay miserable if you hold on to depression and anger. You hold on to it because you think that if you let go of it, you are not honoring your child. However, he says...the last thing that your child wants is for you to honor him or her being miserable. Yes, you will miss him or her, but let them enjoy you while finding joy in life. That is honoring them. I hope this helps. I have prayed for all of those whose children went on to a peaceful Heaven. They are just a breath away. Talk to them, invite them to share in your life..they are still with us...just changed form. I pray also for people like me, who are living with partners who are missing their children. It changes the relationship and life as you knew it. It is difficult to know what to say an what to do for them sometime. It is difficult to lose part of your partner, when they "lost" their son or dtr. We hurt too, just in a different way. God bless us all!!

Hope everyone is doing good. I have found myself a job and I am really liking it except that I am not needed 40 hours a week. I have been off for a month and should return some time in the beginning of May. Now the problem is with my daughter, she was aressted Friday night and she wants everyone to get up 1150. dollars to get her out. Not that anyone would because she got there on her own and now she has to pay. Last week she tried to break into her sons room to steal money and I found out from her youngest that she stole his keys to the house so she could get into my mother-in-laws house(because we had the same keys to the 2 houses so it would be easier on my 85 year old mother in law) Now we both have to go spend money on new locks. I don't know how much more I can take from her.I asked God to put her some place so I could rest so He put her in jail.The boys are getting older and realize what she is doing. They just haven't figured out that she does this to get money for drugs.Enough of my problems. Love Ya All
