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 Tammy, it's so nice to see you posting again! We've all missed your kind, loving words. I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through something right now, but our prayers are with you and your family, and I know that God will weather whatever storm that's in your life, and bring you safely through it! If we've all touched you, then you know how much you've all touched us! God bless you, sweetie, and I'm glad that you're back!

Hello pun82224, it's so nice to see you posting again also! I hope you have a wonderful Easter also, and I'm so happy that we've been able to help you out, just as you have done for us! Everyone who posts here is special to me, and you are always in my prayers. Here, we can find comfort, understanding and love from each other as we go through our Journeys along the path of grief. Everyone here at this Circle understands, and you're so right, we all have each other to lean on, especially on the valley days, as I call them, and on those 'special' days that can cause so much pain. You're a treasure also to this Circle, and I pray that you have a peace filled day, your words are so much comfort to us also!
Luv Sandy

Dear eudora, Barb, we will be praying for you extra hard as you come up on your Carol's Anniversary tomorrow, I know how difficult these 'special' days are, and what they mean to us. May you remember some of the good, happy times you shared with her, and the love bond that still exists, and may you find another penny,
Luv Sandy

4/1/2002 19:08

Dearest Pun8224, thank you for your very kind, loving words and I in turn thank Our Heavenly Father for any help that I and the rest of the Circle are to you and others. You are an inspiration to us all, losing one child is devastating enough, but losing two sons as you have must have a pain all of it's own, yet you reach out to other's, sharing your love and concern.
May God bless YOU abundantly for doing this! It is so comforting to know that our children are really still with us, watching over us still, our own special Angels in Heaven. You have two! How they must look after their mom and dad, sending their love together to you both.
So thank you, pun, and we love you dearly, my prayers and those of the other wonderful moms are with you,
Luv Sandy

I loss my first baby on 2/27/02 at 39wks preg. to umbilical cord accident. I am having a hard time with this. I would never imagined that I would be burying my baby. I am a born-again Christian and having a hard time understanding. I prayed to get pregnant and God blessed me with a child. When the doctor told me the cord was around her neck and told me not to worry because it happens all the time, I prayed and trusted in the Lord. Now I feel like He wasn't there and I am struggling. Please pray for me.


4/3/2002 12:39

I have prayed for you and understand just how you feel. But God is watching over uou just as your little one is. Your baby was very special and God saw to that so he needed her to be with his angels. she is a very special angel! You will never forget how special she was. She has a special place in your heart forever. There are no words to heal your pain but just knowing your little one is the the almighty. You will go through alot but remember this site is here for you. Anyone of us will talk to you. It helps to a point just knowing they are others who have gone through the same as you. Your not alone. I will pray for you and your little one. Take one day at a time. Go through the feelings. Nothing that you do is right or wrong. Its how it makes you feel. I am here if needed just as all the rest are. Take care cuz I care!

4/3/2002 12:48

As you know we do what we have to to keep going. The times I need someone this site was here for me. I hope in many ways I can help others just as others have helped me. Next moth will be another hard one but I know this site is here if I need it. We all have cried and asked why but never getting a answer. You made this site to help others just like yourself. That in my eyes makes you special in many ways. I know words are words and nothing will bring our children back but each one of us has gone on which is so very hard. Getting up each day and doing what we have to to stay alive is hard but with help we all do it. And that makes us all SPECIAL in our own way! God-Bless each and everyone of you. Sandy,I thank-you from the bottom of my heart for the help you gave me and others! I pray each and every night for everyone! We all need a prayer now and then,keep up the great work.

4/3/2002 18:22

4/3/2002 18:29

Hi Sandy,Yesterday was a sad day but i made it through with the help of family and friends like you.Thank you for your love and prayers.I did do a lot of thinking about our wonderful times together.Yesterday was a jumble of emotions thinking of so many different things.If you get a chance go to Carols memorial and read the poem Verna wrote.I just can not explain what it did for me.And thanks again,Sandy.You always make me feel better.Love,Barb

4/3/2002 19:20

Hello Natasha, I'm so very sorry to read about your precious baby daughter. I know you must be filled with so much pain and a lot of mixed emotions, but that's ok, it's all part of grieving, so is being angry with God, and asking 'why'. It's the way we work through our grief, letting the pain and anger out, it's just too painful to hold it all in. I pray that you have good support around you, with friends and family to lean on and talk to about your loss, and sweetie, anytime you want to post here about how you're feeling, that's what this Circle is all about, it's a safe, loving haven to let your pain and feelings out. All of us here have experienced the loss of a child, or children, so we all have gone down that lonely, sad road. But with help from others, and a lot of prayer, God will help you to get back on track, whenever you're ready, there's no timetable for grieving, you take as much time as you need. God loves you and understands how you feel much better than anyone else could, so turn to Him in your sadness, and we'll certainly keep you close to our hearts and prayers too. May God give you some peace and may you feel His love,
Luv Sandy

4/3/2002 19:26

Hi Barb, I'm happy to see you posting again, it must have been such a hard day for you, we all know too well how those special days can bring up such tremendous emotions in us. I'm so happy that you were able to remember some of the good times and love that you shared with your daughter, along with the mixed emotions, as you say. It's such a difficult day, but I'm so happy that with prayers and support from this Circle that it helped you to get through it! Yes, I'll visit Carol's site and read the poem, I'm sure it was lovely, and touched your heart. You're so very welcome, Barb, and may God give you some peace also today,
Luv Sandy

4/3/2002 19:45

Hi pun82224, I'm so very happy that this Circle brings you some comfort, as I said, I don't know how you ever coped losing your two boys, you must have a very strong faith, God love you. You're so very right, we all do need prayers said for us, and you be sure to let us know when your son's date is coming up, so we can storm Heaven for prayers for you, that it will make the day a little easier for you. You're in our prayers all the time, but on those special days, we need a little extra help, and you know you'll find it here!
Your own words are so very comforting to read themselves, so you are special too! I find that it helps to give back, for only another mom who has lost a child, or in your case, two, truly understands how we feel. That's why I'm so grateful to God for whispering in my ear to start this Circle, it's helped me as much as other moms who post here. Thank you once again for your kind words, and please remember that you and all the other moms here are special to me, and please don't forget to let us know when your son's date is, love and prayers to you,
Luv Sandy

4/4/2002 19:30

Hello Barb, (eudora), that's so wonderful!! I bet your heart leapt for joy when you saw those pennies! It just proves that Carol is around you, watching over you, and is letting you know she's OK, and doesn't want you to be so sad. I'm so happy for you sweetie, you needed a lift after her Anniversary, and isn't God so good, He sent you another sign, and not just one, but five! I'm so happy for you Barb, I bet it made your day, God love you, may you continue to always find them,
Luv Sandy

Dear dovesfromheaven:
I just want you to know how much I am praying for your daughter's safe pregnancy. She has been through so much and I know how scared, but hopeful she must feel. The Lord blessed me twice after my miscarriage, so I know that he is watching over her and that child. Please know that you, her, and that unborn child will be prayed for daily.
Love always,
Tammy Cooper

Hi to all,I just wanted to share the memorial i put in the paper for my daughter.
You never said I'm leaving,you never said goodbye.
You were gone before i knew it,and i'm left to wonder why.
I think of you in silence,i often repeat your name,
But all that is left to answer me,is your picture in a frame.
How many times I've called to you,how many times I've cried.
If love alone would have saved you,you never would have died.
I miss your love and laughter,your voice i can still hear.
No one knows the heartache that i feel since your not here.
From the early morning hours,through each late and lonely night,
Your memory is always with me,although you're out of sight.
In life i loved you dearly,in death i love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,that no one else can fill.
To your resting i wander,the flowers i place with care.
No one knows the heartache,as i turn and leave you there.
It broke my heart to lose you,but you did not go alone,
For part of me went with you,when you went on your journey home.
There is more but it is just about family.I pray this touches some one and helps them in their grief.Every word of it is the way i feel.God bless you all.My love and prayers are with everyone on this site.Love,Barb

4/5/2002 18:36

Dear crattliffe:
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son 11 years ago. I am sure that time must stand still when it comes to the death of our children. I have read posts here where the passing was more than 20 years ago and the mother still feels as though it was yesterday. I imagine that is how I would feel as well.
Please know that I will pray for you and your family. I hope that you find comfort and peace at this site. I have been blessed in my life from the wonderful people here and I know that you will as well.
Love always,
Tammy Cooper

4/5/2002 18:42

Dear tes19:
What a wonderful person you are to post a prayer here! I am sure that all of the parents appreciate and are comforted by your prayer. These children are most definately with the Lord and He will always be there to guide them. God bless you and your family.
Love always,
Tammy Cooper
