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 najadaki1952 ~ Welcome to our prayer circle of love/compassion/understanding/ and heartfelt prayers. I am so very sorry to read about your son Lawrenceís passing. God love you - You are just beginning your journey which means you are in the very early stages of dealing with the 24/7 grief; the greatest grief a parent will ever know. As our chief angel mom Sandy [who started this circle in loving memory of her son Shane] often says, the loss of a beloved child has a grief all its own. You may be sure that I will say a special heartfelt prayer for you on your beloved sonís anniversary - September 6, 2008.

Godís peace and blessings,
Verna

Hello sja, najadaki1952, and alpal. Thank you for praying for me today. It has really been quite a good day! God and Diane didn't let me down. :) They sent me the most beautiful black butterfly with beautiful tiny multi-color dots and trimmings of some kind. Never seen one like that before in our area. I saw it today as I was walking with one of our great grand kids out on our front lawn. Now you know that made me smile and reassured me once again that Diane is divinely alive and well,decked out in her new heavenly body, and sheís watching over her mom and family here on earth. The butterfly lingered briefly going from flower to flower around the old oak tree in our yard. Diane also did her thing with the blinking lights for me last night. Those little signs really do mean an awful lot to me and also other angel moms who have experienced their own signs from their own angel kids. So, angel moms, I encourage you to watch for signs from your child! Thanks again all for the prayers!
Love and (((HUGS))) from heaven! :)

Ms.Verna,
I have a testimony that I would like to share.My son was killed when his car hydroplaned on a highway. Since his accident I had decided that I would never travel that highway again. It has been almost a year ago. It will be a year on september 6. About a month ago I started praying to the LORD to give me strength to travel that highway to the place where the accident occured. The LORD awaken me one morning about 4:00 a.m. And told me that my son had to travel that highway in order to make it home to be with his heavenly father. The LORD said I know he did not make it back home to you but he made it to his heavenly home. I know the LORD was telling me that my son was alright resting in heaven from the evil here on this earth. This is for all the grieving moms and dads. GOD has our babies with him and we are going to see them agin.

Hello dear Chris, ~ You have no idea just how much it means to me when someone testifies to what I use to refer to as strange happenings. Now, I just call them signs from heaven, or spiritual blessings! It took me a while to catch on to what was happening.. Yes, I agree; the signs are always ďright on time.Ē Thanks again for the update post of Special Dates. It always helps to know that others are thinking of us and praying for us on our special days. I will continue praying for healing for your friendís dad and your nephew, Shane.
I am also praying for you, Mike, and your entire family as this is a double whammy month for you all. I know Iím a little late mentioning this but I am so very glad that God answered our heartfelt prayers and gave your son the strength he needed to overcome his addiction. I smiled as my eyes filled up with tears when I read your post about it the other night. Then all of a sudden I stopped smiling and said, ďLord have mercy on me!Ē So please continue to pray that God will give me; first, the DESIRE, and then the strength to do what I know I need to do as it relates to quitting smoking once and for all. What I mean is Ö I want to JUST QUIT! Ö No Excuses! Iíve done better on cutting back but that, too, is an excuse Ö that is not quitting! So, Ö please keep praying for me to do what I KNOW I need to do.
Godís peace and blessings,
[LOVE2U]

najadaki1952 ~ AMEN!!! What a beautiful testimony to share here with our angel moms and dads. May God continue to reveal divine things to you by way of His Holy Spirit! Just as He has done for me so many times through the poems He gives to me to write and share with our angel moms and dads. As Chris and I have shared above, God always sends the messenger and the messenger and or the message is always right on time!

I was the driver in an accident that claimed the life of a teenaged boy last year. I was not at fault for this accident but I am so completely heartbroken for his family and for all who have lost a child. I have learned to pray for all of you daily and to be so grateful for evey moment I have my child and all my loved ones in my life. I am truly so sorry for the loss each of you has suffered. I pray you find peace and comfort and that your hearts will heal and somehow, your lives will be filled with love and joy again.

Connie (connienevada): I'm sorry that I/other angel moms/dads didn't get here to post but please know our prayers were with you on your Derrick's BD [Sept. 2nd]. Hubby and I still had a full house [4 adults, 2 small children, 1 infant] on that day due to hurricane Gustav. So things have been pretty busy around here for the past couple of days. They left earlier today headed back to find hopefully not too much flood damage. I hope your day was filled with fond memories of your beloved Derrick and God's peace and the knowledge that you were being prayed for by many angel moms/dads; even is circumstances kept them from submitting a post to let you know. We try hard not to miss anyone's special day, but regretfully, sometimes it happens. Still, our thoughts and prayers were with you.
Love & Angel Hugs,
Verna

Hi dear Phyllis,(prayerbunny): Our thoughts and prayers were with you on your beloved Rhonda's heavenly date [Sept 3]. Even after some time has passed we still miss our beloved children and that empty place in our heart is still there. It always helps to know that others are thinking of us and praying for God to give us peace as only He can; especially on those special days. As time passes on, I pray that your grief is becoming easier to bear... one hour, one day at a time.
God's peace and blessings,
Verna

I want to send my Prayers for The Williams Family. On September 1,2008, two blocks from my house Linda Williams, has lost her Little girl, Jequiel in gang cross-fire while tying her 5yr old Blind sister's shoes. It's it a crying shame how this little girl had lost her life in just a minute. Well, I know that God had came to pick his Precious Flower to come home.Also I want to give my Deepest Sympathy and Blessings to The Williams Family & Shaner for their loss of their Loved ones. May God wrap his Loving arms around everyone who lost their love ones,and give them strenghth to carry on in his Holy Name,Amen. God Bless!!!

still living and it's been 9 years out from my son's passing into the light of God's love and the presence of Jesus and knowing that he is safe home.I look beyond the grave and the life that will be for all of us. yesterday is gone and today is ours tomorrow is the future and I know who holds the future. Garrett's birthday will be Sept 20th. He would have been 29 this year in my heart,I do live in the shadow of his smile,but I believe in the light of God's love and that is what gets me through the storm of my grief.My prayer is that all that walk this way,know that God keeps his word,it is truth and we shall all be together again.love,peace and God's grace to we meet on the other side of life that he has promised.

Prayers for all of you, and I, too, lost my son, Paul, in 2002 when he was only 28 years old, to suicide, or they said it was suicide but there are some questions regarding this.

I have no doubt that the children the Lord takes for his own reasons are sitting beside him and he watches over them until we come home. A bond between a mother and father with their child can never be broken and even after life we will find them or they will be waiting. I believe this. You felt the love, it is real. Until that time that you hold your child again, let your hearts not worry for these days will be short and you will see Shane. Please know this. He made a promise that his children will be with him at his feet. He is loved. God Bless you during this time and may angels have their wings around you. Hold on to your faith.
I have lost three sets of twins and two single children and I know I will be greeted in his time.

Hello Everyone, and a warm welcome to our new members.

I am still trying to help answer prayer requests and give our Sandy a much needed and much deserved break ... remembering to pray daily for all who have lost a beloved child.

With so much going on here and else where, I don't always get here to post, but still hope each of you will feel the results of my prayers and the prayers of others.

Since my last post, I have really had my hands full. Please keep me in your prayers and I will continue doing the same for everyone. I KNOW God is on our side and I trust him to give us those moments of peace for which we pray. I would like to encourage each and every angel mom/dad to hold on to God and keep the faith because God ain't through with you yet!

Presently, hubby and I have a total of 13 family members staying with us, trying to avoid the dangers of hurricane Ike. Again, please keep us all in your prayers because things are not looking too good here in our area either even though we are further north in our state.

Since my last post, I have also attended two family hour home going services. One and older person a first cousin of my mother and aunt, and a younger person; the sister of one of my daughter's classmates. It's been 12 years since losing Diane but I still try to avoid funerals. I feel the pain of others so intensely, I fear adding to their emotional stress. So when I am feeling that way, I just stay away and pray or contribute in some other way that may be helpful to the family.

Well, everyone is asleep now, so I guess I'd best try to get some rest and try to prepare for tomorrow's storm/tornado warnings.
God's peace and blessings,
Verna

Dear Trisha99, I am sorry to read that you lost your beloved son, Garrett. Nine years seems like a long time, but when it comes to the loss of your beloved child, I imagine nine years may sometime seem like yesterday. Itís been twelve years since I lost my daughter, Diane, but I still have days when it seems like yesterday. I will remember you in my prayers; especially on your Garrettís birthday. You are right when you say that it is the love of God that gets us through the storm of our grief. For, no matter how great the storm, if we keep the faith through all of our grief, sadness, anger, disappointment and frustration at the unfairness that exists it this old world, we will survive, and we have the blessed hope of seeing our children and other loved ones on the other side. So angel moms/dads, lets keep the faith!

Sharing a favorite poem that my daughter, Cheryl, wrote shortly after we lost her sister, Diane:

Godís Amazing Grace

His grace is always sufficient
No matter how great the loss
When Jesus died and rose again
He completely paid the cost

So know His grace is sufficient
Your part in this if FAITH
Just believe and rely on Jesus
And His amazing grace!
LOVE2U,
Verna

Dear Reesy, What a sad and tragic thing to have happened to this precious child. It just takes my breath away just thinking about it. :( And how tramatic this had to be for the little sister who is blind. :( God pleas have mercy on this precious child!

We know by faith this child is now in heaven in the arms of Jesus. Still our hearts grieve for her loss of life here on earth, and for the indescribable grief and pain that her parents, family members, and friends will have to endure for years to come.

It is always extremely heartbreaking to lose a precious child, but when death comes so suddenly, without warning, and in such a tragic manner, it makes it even harder to bear. Such a senseless and tragic thing to have happen and all because of stupid [sorry]*%#@!# people doing stupid things! [Forgive me Lord, but this makes me soooo angry!]

I really wish in my heart there was a way to rid our lives of all of these random acts of violence on innocent people; especially children.

Unfortunately we know this will never be, as long as we have hateful people doing hateful things just because they can. All we can do is pray, and join you in offering our deepest sympathy and blessings to the Williams family. And yes, may God wrap His loving arms around everyone who has lost a love one and give them strength to carry on in His Holy Name. Thank you for sharing their story here so that all who read your post can continue praying for them, and all others who have lost a precious child or other loved one.
Godís peace and blessings,

Dear Angel Moms/Dads, and all who come to read or post, I am asking for prayer for all the victims of Gustva and Ike. Also pray for our troops, our country, and all who are going through their own personal life storms whatever they might be. We all have them from time to time! :(

Hubby and I have been host for 12 family members who came to stay with us until both hurricanes were over. They left yesterday to go back and try to pick up the pieces of thier lives after Ike. No drinking water we heard on the news and God only knows what else they will have to face. It's the children and tiny infant that I worry about the most. So please include them in your prayers. I also ask for prayers family here. We have our hands full caring for other family members who need special home care. When insurance runs out home care is an only option. Since open heart surgery I have little strength, but again I am grateful that things are as well as they are. I just wish I could do more and I have to make myself take care of me so I can do what I can to help others. Sometimes I forget to do that! :( So please keep me in your prayers and I will do the same for all here. I will also try to catch up on back post ASAP.
God's peace and blessings,
Verna
