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.

Father God, I come to You today on behalf of all the hurting hearts who have 'found' this prayer circle of love and healing. Father, I know that You have led them here so we can share their hurt and pain. Father, I haven't read back far enough yet to know why Sandy isn't posting, but I ask You to enfold her, surround her with Your presence, Your love, Your peace, Your hope, and give her courage to face her fears head on and put them behind her once and for all. Father, I know that You are the Great Healer and You can touch a heart that is hurting and make it whole again. The pain never goes away while we're here on this earth, but You help it to lessen with time so that it's not 24/7 that's all we think about. Father, I also thank You for the faithful ones who've been helping the hurting moms/dads through the years (you know who you are). Without them, I wouldn't be a little further on my journey of healing; I'd still be stuck in the past and wanting to die myself. Father, I thank You for Sandy and the whisper that You gave her to reach out to other moms/dads in their grief. Father, I again ask that You restore her health and make her strong to carry on Your work that You have for her to do. Some day we can lay down ALL our burdens forever! Then we can bask in Your presence, surrounded by our children and grandchildren who've gone to be with You ahead of us. What a wonderful day that will be! Father, I also ask that You give us who are reaching out to others a spirit of grace and mercy to let them know that we've 'been there' and that we care about them and their pain. Father, grant us healing as we reach out to each other; bring wholeness into our hearts once again as we find a 'purpose' for our pain and grief. No death of a child is 'purposeful' because it hurts so much, but help us, Father, to know that You do everything well and will show us the way You would have us use this to reach out to others who are hurting. Father, we bless Your name and thank You that You are watching over us today. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
Love and MANY, MANY (((HUGS))) to you all.

Good morning to you all. The reason I'm here so much now is because I'm homebound because of snow and ice; all the area schools and some of the businesses are closed. It's nice to be able to stay home all day, but I'll miss the pay when it's time for my paycheck to come.
I just want to thank God again for you all and for the support that you give to all the hurting hearts out there. For all of you who are hurting severely right now, I ask our Father God to surround you with His love and comfort and mercy. Only He can heal a broken heart; and I ask Him to reach out to you and comfort you with His embrace today, to hold you and cry with you, and show you in a definite way that He cares about and for you. We care for you too and want you to feel free to share any hurts/problems with us that you're having today.
May you walk in peace today, in Jesus' name. Amen
Love and (((HUGS))),

Please lift up Adam up in prayer. He lost his baby girl in a fire yesterday. He was already a non-believer. And now he is blaming God for what happened.

Please pray for his salvation and deliverance.

Please pray that Adam his ex-girlfriend and all who knew and loved Kayla will be comforted during this difficult time in their lives.

Dear Lashonda,
Yes, I'm lifting Adam up in prayer right now, as well as everyone whose lives Kayla touched. This is when the grief is so overwhelming that all you can do is act out in some way--moaning, crying, screaming, yelling,'s so unfair and God seems to be the one to blame since He's all-powerful and should have prevented innocent children's deaths. I pray, though, that Kayla's death will soften Adam's heart toward God, that Adam will see that God is Love and doesn't 'kill' children. We don't understand why this happened; we just need to trust in God that He will draw Adam to Himself and deliver him from this awful pain, in time.
Thank you, Lashonda, for bringing this to our attention.
Father, comfort all those who knew Kayla or who know her family. Comfort them as only You can; wrap Your comforting arms around them and lead them by the hand as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Give them peace, Father, in the days ahead; and send Your ministering angels to them to lighten their load. In Jesus name I ask and believe that You will work miracles in Adam's life. Amen
Love to you Lashonda, and keep us updated on how everyone is doing.

Dear Lashonda,
Thank you for bringing Adam before us to pray for him. I am lifting him up before God right now and asking Him to strengthen Adam in the days ahead, to comfort him and to show him that He is Love and does not 'kill' children. It's so easy to blame God because He's all-powerful and we think He should prevent children's deaths. Sorry to say that in this world there are too many children dying. We don't understand it and maybe we're not supposed to; may God show His mercy to Adam right now. He's in the all-consuming stage of grief right now, when all he wants to do is lash out at someone. I pray that God will comfort all those who Kayla's life touched in some way, that He will protect them as they're walking through the valley of the shadow of death, that He will bring them through to the other side where they can see the sun shining again.
Keep us updated on what is happening with Adam.
Thank you,
Grandma Charlene

Sorry for the double post. I submitted the first one and it didn't show up so I posted again.

1/29/2009 17:48

GRANDMA LOST4~In response to your posting on 1/28/09: Thank you so very much for the words of encouragement and prayer. I didn't know Adam or Kayla personally. But one of my online friends informed me of this tragedy.

I just learned today, that Kayla died of smoke inhalation before the fire reached her. Her funeral will be Saturday.

I just ask that you continue to lift up those who knew and loved this precious baby, in prayer.


God bless you!

Thank you Lashonda, for your encouragement. I found this prayer circle in 2006 after I had fumbled around in the dark after my 2 granddaughters were killed in a car wreck on Dec. 1, 2004. I was also grieving the 2 grandsons we lost at birth in 1989, even though I didn't know I was grieving for them too at the time. I had never allowed myself the freedom to grieve them and I was hit broadside with all 4 of their deaths at once (even though one of the grandsons was given up for adoption, he didn't die, but it was still a loss for me to grieve over). I found this prayer circle and I learned what grief was and how to do it. The ladies here were so supportive and helpful for the year and a half that I was able to be an active part of the circle. I got the GriefShare emails every day for a year and I still have them saved on my computer. Then I left my husband on August 31, 2007. I have realized that I am going through the grief process all over again. It's not the same as losing the grandchildren, but it is still grief. I have just started a DivorceCare group by the same people that did GriefShare and we're basically covering the stages of grief. It's not fun, but neither was living with a verbal/emotional abuser. I have had to start working for the past year and I'm slowly getting used to being on my own. It feels so good to connect again with the prayer circle sisters.
Again, thank you for bringing Adam and Kayla to our attention. He's still in my prayers.
Love and (((HUGS))),

Hello all! It's been back-to-work for me so I'm not here as much as I'd like to be. I just want to tell all my sisters in grief that you have helped me TREMENDOUSLY!! The DivorceCare group that I'm attending is greatly benefitting from the lessons that you all have taught me. Sandy, Verna, Selva, Donna, Chris, Jane, Kathy, LeeAnn, Anita, to name just a few; God is so good to place in our path just the right ones to help us on our journey and He placed you all here for me. Tonight we talked about loss and grief and I was able to share with all of them how you all helped me and that they need to GRIEVE! It's not easy and it's not how we want to spend our days, but it has to be done in order for us to heal. The tragic death of our loved one is not something that we would have EVER wanted, but it has happened and we are left to deal with it. I know that I didn't deal with it until I met you all. The old saying that 'I don't care how much you know until I know how much you care' is so appropriate for you all. I know I said it before, but I want to say it again: YOU ARE ALL VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!
For all of you who are grieving and are probably wondering what I'm babbling on about, bear with me. This is a wonderful place to vent, cry, share, and the sisters here are so good to listen and advise and share back with you. So if you are hurting today, I encourage you to share your hurts with ones who have 'been there'. No, no one has gone through exactly what you're going through, but they have experienced pain and loss and hurt and anger, and they understand what losing a child is like; so they can empathize with you and help you on your journey of grief and healing.
Love to you all, and God's blessings on you tonight--to give you peace and comfort in your sleep.
Grandma Charlene
