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.

I'm praying for those of you with special days coming--Shaner, for your Shane's 34 birthday, and Melenee, for your Caleb's 1st anniversary of his Heaven date. You will get through the day, and know that there are people holding you up in thoughts and prayers. Joyce

My only son died in June, 2001 during a disastrous delivery which nearly claimed my life. Although it's been nearly 7 years, the entire month of June is an excruciating ordeal.

Blessings on all of us parents who've had to bury a child too soon. The desire to stay mired on the stages where we look for reason or assign blame is strong, but delays the grieving process.

It can get better with time... they say.

Dear Heavenly Father, the giver and taker of life, please be with our friends here who are suffering a loss we are too familar with. Draw close to them and let them know you are the great physician and the wonderful counselor, and you alone have our best interest at heart. Even though many times it is hard to see what lies ahead,and many times we lose sight of who we are and where we are going you are always there leading and directing our lives as only you can. Give them the peace that passes all understanding and let them know you are there even when it seems no one cares or understands. Pour out your richest blessings on them and help them through the darkest hours as you have helped and continue to help me. Thank you Father for all you do and for all you are going to do not only in my life but in others. Amen

Father God,
bless all those coping with this loss. Wrap Your arms around them, comfort them and show them Your love. Show them that their children never left them, that they are still with them always, they simply cannot see them. They are in Your heavenly realm, in such a beautiful place, they are in complete peace and happiness, in Your kingdom with You. Although it is so difficult to not be able to see and hear their children, the parents need to know this, that their children are not gone. They can talk to them whenever and know that they are there with them, that they are in such a beautiful place with You Lord God. Thank You for hearing our prayers, thank You for loving us. Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

Hello, I have not been here for a while and when I was here, I had used another name. I had to open another account because I am not able to log on to my old account. Anyway, some of you may remember me as a father that has lost his son, his wife, and a young man that I loved as a son. They were killed by a drunk driver on Oct. 6, 2007. So for 35 weeks and 6 days my wife and I are living a nightmare unspeakable. So I come to you in a time when i am a low. My son was married on June 22, 2007. They were killed almost 4 months after they were married... Well it will be a year Oct. 6.... With fathers day coming this weekend.... I feel like I am living that night all over again. The night my son died...I felt like I died... The only thing that keeps me from going off the deep end is my wife...but how can I comfort her...when I can't comfort myself. Thank you for listening to my rambling. God bless all of you here that have lost a loved one....

Broken Eagle, I was just saying a prayer for my husband and for all fathers who have lost a child. I'm sure father's day is as hard for them as mother's day is for us. Know that people are praying for you today, and that you will get through this terrible time. We have been changed forever, but with God's help, we will be able to celebrate the life of our loved ones, and to recognize the beauty and life around us. No question that it takes time, and your loss is still so fresh. We care, and our holding you and your wife gently in our thoughts.

My daughter was taken from me on her 16th birthday in 1990.When your thru the anger at God of the injustice of it all , he will see you thru. The pain will never be gone, but my prayer is that you will find a place for it.

My Angel, Logan. It has only been a year since you left us. Every day I remember your beautiful face and stop by the front door to hug you as you went to work or school. That is my special spot now. You are a special, wonderful young man and I know God has plans for good for you. Each time I pray, I ask God to tell you how much I love you and give you a fat hug for me. Thank you for being with me for 18 years and they were the most wonderful years of my life. Pray for me also that when I begin to feel the pain - I will realize that you are with me. I will see you as soon as it's time. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART. Maddy and Cupid miss u also!!! Love you, my dear son.

My son,25 yrs.old was killed in a horrible auto accident on May 24,2008. This is my most dreadful, horrible experience in my life. I believe in God and know He has a plan for everything and a reason for all that happens. Still it is SO hard just getting from one day to the next. I pray for all of those parents here that are going through this same thing.The wide range of emotions are unbelievable. I don't feel together anymore, like I could fall apart at any minute. Thank you for listening.

This is the hardest thing to do is die before your children. Even though; Thank God; I have and pray I never will see one of my children pass before myself.
I want to say this to shall pass and everything is time. but that does not help a grieving person on any level until time has passed and sometimes not even then.
All I can say is to know our God is a God of grace and love and He is the author and we are all here on loan.
I pray for your peace of mine and understanding of God's way and to remember without death on this earth there is no heaven.
I read somewhere that the power and mystery of grace meets us where we are and does not leave us where it finds us. Going through my prayer circle; wanting today to pray for you and others in this situation kind of lets me see what the author might mean.
Pray for me as I you and always know God is with you and I know how easy that is for us on the outside at this time to say; but true it is and I pray for you, your family, your strength and understanding, and peace and joy in the morning, with God's loving arms around you.
God Bless you

I know the lost of a child but I also know the love of God and through His love I can face tomorrow. I feel for all who are on this hard road with me but I know God is walking with us also. Knowing that He is with me has made a very bad time easier, I know God's love is more than enough when I go through these days of hopelessness, I realize, God is still here and He still carries me on those days(like birthdays, day of death) I know He said in the Word, I'll never leave you nor forsake you and I stand on that promise. My continued prayers for you all.

I want to send a prayer for each and everyone who has lost a child from the deepest part of my spirit. My husband and I have recently lost our son Joshua. He was killed in an automobile accident on March 24, 2008. He had just turned 18 on the 15th. I have to have God's help everyday. I talk and fellowship with Him and he always gets me through. I know He gave His only Son for us all. Jesus is our salvation and savior. I have had "supernatural" things happen from the moment of Joshua's spirit leaving his physical body. Some people tell me to let those things mean whatever I want them to mean. I don't know if they are sign's from Joshua or Jesus and God helping me through spiritual happenings. All I do know is they felt spiritual and I know my Joshua is at peace. I will continue to pray for all of you as I pray always . Sincerely, CHRISTINME

May God bless all parents who have lost loved ones. Bless them to find comfort in You, Lord. Give them the faith and understanding that You needed more angels. Lord You know how hard it has been giving up my daughter @ 43, leaving 5 beauful children. Those children, Lord need Your comfort of knowing their mother is in heaven and sending the butterflies down to cover them with their wings. Lord You know I have an older daughter who is fighting drugs, please take the desire away from her and bless her with Your goodness, love and peace. Bless the rest of our family, Lord to receive you in their hearts and serve You. I pray this all in Your precious NAME

Dear ncgrammy: I read about your Eric and extend my sympathy. My beloved Mandi died just before her 6th birthday. That emptiness that you feel will not last forever but I will not presume to tell you how long that will take. For me, it was ten years before I felt anything in that part of my heart that I had buried with her. My journey was a very long one and I know now that my grieving was really off the charts - but it was my grief to be experienced and to journey through. Don't let anyone tell you that it is time you 'got over it' I truly believed from the first that she was in the arms of Jesus and I did not really want her back to end my grief. She was disabled in life and used a wheelchair and I believed with all my heart that her wheelchair then became the ultimate symbol of freedom. In Heaven, she would walk, run, hop, skip and jump. I didn't begrudge her that but the hole it left in my life was beyond comprehension. I can only tell you that every year was a little easier and, with dependance on my friend Kelly, I very gradually began to find a reason to live again. I had two older children, a girl 15 and a boy 13, and it took time for them to get their Mom back. Six weeks after the 10th anniversary of her passing I stood in a delivery room and a nurse passed me my first grandchild - I was overwhelmed by the rush of love and feelings of peace at last. That frozen part of my heart melted and I knew that I had made it through the grief - I was going to be okay. I hope my story will help you.
"heavenly Father, I pray that you will place someone in this woman's life who will be able to guide her just as You would. Someone to steady her with Your love and encourage her as she goes through this painful journey. In the name of Jesus Christ I ask, Amen"

God bless all of you who have lost a child or loved one. I, too, have lost a 43 yr. daughter with 5 children. I also, have an older daughter who is addicted to drugs who needs all our prayers. GOD BLESS YOU SHANE.

6/28/2008 06:14

I have not been here in a while and I have noticed there are a few new parents who have lost children recently, my prayer for each of you today is that God will touch your lives and bless you and give you that peace that surpasses all understanding. Heavenly Father we come before you today in prayer seeking your devine healing for each of these parents and pray that their children are resting in your loving arms eternally.Amen

On July 6 it will be 1 year and two months that he has been gone from me. I miss him so much.Please keep me and my family in your prayers as I will keep each one of you in mine. My heart goes out to all of you. God Bless You.

My heart goes out to all and everyone of you who have lost a child. It is THE HARDEST thing in life to endure. In 1983 I lost a month old baby... "Sharon" thought I'd never survive but I did. Sincerest sympathy and understanding to all!! Happy Fourth of July
