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.

To our Special Dates Angel Mom Chris [Smile]Thanks for posting our special dates list for the month of October. I would like to encourage any angel mom or angel dad who have lost a beloved child during the month of October or if your child was born in October to post your child's birthdate or the date they went home to live with God, so that we angel moms can say a special prayer for you on those special days.
Love & prayers,

Dear Eagelnest61, I had a medical emergency yesterday and did not get a chance to post, but want you to know that my thoughts and prayers were with you. I cannot even begin to imagine the magnitude of grief and pain you have endured. To lose one child is devastating enough, but three just takes my breath away. I pray that God will continue to hold you close and bless and give you peaceful moments as only He can.
Godís peace and blessings,

10/7/2008 07:04

Chris, you really have been through a lot. We will continue to pray for you. Very glad to hear that your nephew, Shane, is getting better. We will continue praying for healing.
God's peace and blessings,

Do not fret. (Psalm 37:1)

Overheard in an Orchard

Said the Robin to the Sparrow:
ďI should really like to know
Why these anxious human beings
Rush about and worry so.Ē

Said the Sparrow to the Robin:
ďFriend I think that it must be
That they have no Heavenly Father
Such as cares for you and me.Ē

Dear God, I pray this prayer for all angel moms and angel dads who are just beginning their journey of loss and grief due to the loss of a precious and beloved child. Let each of them know that it is okay to cry, to be angry, and feel as though You, God, have let them down. Let them know that many of us who are farther along on our grief journey have experienced those same kind of feelings and with your help unconditional love have been able to continue on our journey in spite of those feelings in spite of our loss and with your help the grief is now not so intense. Father, it helps to know that You understand the depth of our grief because You gave Your only Son, Jesus, to die so that we will someday will see our beloved children again. And, for that, we are mighty grateful dear Lord! Thank You, Father God. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen!

Heavenly Father,

Once again I come before your throne to thank you for all your many blessings. Thank you most of all for sending so many earth angels through the years to help me survive the tragic loss of the oldest of my two beloved daughters; my storm of a lifetime. Father you know that there have been many, many times through the years that I felt I couldnít go on, could not stand the 24/7 grief and pain. I just knew I couldnít do it. I simply had no desire to go on. But today, a little over 12 years later, I am so very grateful to you for sending the help I needed to make it through the storm. Thank you so much for not allowing me to give in to the grief and pain; for healing my shattered heart and giving me the strength, the heartfelt desire to share my experiences with others who are just beginning their journey of loss, grief, and healing.

Father, I pray this heartfelt prayer especially for parents who are just beginning their painful journey due to the loss of a beloved child. Wrap your arms around them Lord, please ease their pain, and send your earth angels to help them make it through the beginning stages; the worst part of the storm. Let each of them know that their beloved child, their guardian angel is alive and well in heaven and that they will see their child again someday when their work here is through.

Father we know not the day or the hour. We will never understand why we must carry such a heavy cross. Therefore, we ask that you continue to walk with us, and give us the strength and desire to go on, to heal our shattered hearts so that we can focus on doing your will.

Finally Father, thank you for whispering in Sandy's ear and giving her the desire and wisdom to start this wonderful prayer circle for bereaved parents. Lord knows we need each other to survive our storm of a lifetime!

In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I pray, ~ Amen

We pray that God will wrap His loving arms around you, Joyce, and give you many fond memories of times shared with your beloved Daryl and precious moments of peace throughout your special day and in the days ahead.

Thank You all for being here for me. My son Ryan would have been 26 and now just around the corner he will be gone 3 years and every time this time of the year comes around it hurts worse than any other time of the year. Now my daughter has been told she has cancer and it is spreading.I lost my job last week and to top it off I fell down 2 of my cellar stairs but got only bruised but hurting at times from that. Now that I let it out I am praying for all and think about you all the time.

Hello Lee Ann and Kagan, ~ I am so sorry I was unable to get a post in to you on your special date. I tried for hours, but was unable to remove a virus that downloaded itself on my PC. I know very little about computers, therefore, I had to wait until my son-in-law found time to come fix things. My computer is old so it may crash at anytime. Nevertheless, and God willing, as long as it allows me to I will continue to come here as often as possible to offer up prayers for all who have lost a child. So if you donít see a post from me on or shortly before or after your special day, please know that it was unintentional.

Like the other the other angel moms/dads who come here to read or post, I can relate all too well to how special days affect our spirits before, during, and after the special date. Just knowing that others are praying for us always helps us weather the storm. I count on the prayers of others because I believe they are what keep me going. Therefore, always know that our prayers are with you even when we canít get here to remind you that we are praying for you. I pray that our prayers helped get you through your special date by reminding you both that others really do care and can relate to the pain of losing a beloved child. We canít take away the pain, but we can share it.

To all who have lost a beloved child; always know we are in each others thoughts; which places us in each others prayers! :)

Sorry, the apostrophe on my keyboard turns out to be a question mark only after I copy/paste and submitted my post. Oh well … Still counting my blessings! :)

10/23/2008 01:43

Hi again Lee Ann, ~ I cannot express how sad it makes me to read about your precious daughter.:( I will pray healing prayers for her and I know Selva and others will do the same. May it help to know that both you and your beloved daughter are in our heartfelt prayers for healing. Sorry also to read about you falling.:( So glad to hear you had no broken bones or fractures. :) I, too, had a pretty bad fall recently. Having had heart surgery it really shook me up. God willing, I believe I will be okay.
Love & Prayers,

Father kiss each of our babies and hug each parent as only you can. I ask in Jesus name Amen

OMG my dear dear Miss V, first of all I have to apologize for not posting here in such a long time, second of all I have to say, OMG my dear dear sister, you are one of a kind and you know what I mean, I have been avoiding writing to you because I didn't want you to use your arms in the computer and to my sorprise, here you are, posting away and trying to console these wonderful mothers that are in need of some advise and courage, like we both know, it is such a hard and lonely road to travel.
To all my dear sisters in pain, we all know the pain, the anger, the whys, yes , it is hard, but we our prayers and UNDERSTANDING, we will travel this road together. I lost my only child, Solange, 20 years old, Aug 15, 2002, and I cry every day of my life, it is pain that will never end, you just have to live with it and learn and have the faith, that we will be together again with our children, and this time FOREVER, that God has promised us, and we have to believe. In the meantime, we have to hang in there, pray and like I said, it is a very lonely road, people just don't understand the pain, Thank God for that, so they do not have to suffer what we are suffering, but to the new moms ( and I heard that before from Miss V and Sandy) it will get just a little easier, just a little , it will be a little quieter sadness, it will never go away, your heart will still ache, the memories will be sad, the tears will come, the pain will still be there, but you just wait, until the day, that you will be with your child again, and then you will find peace, and this time FOREVER. My love and prayers will be with you all. SELVA
