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.

Please pray for my foster child, Rochelle Grooms, who was taken suddenly without cause from our potentially adoptive home. It was the only home she had stayed in for the most time. (1yr.)
We have not been able to talk to her or let her know we didn't want this and we didn't abandon her. My heart aches because she had finally bonded with someone. She suffers from ADHD, PTSD, and Reactiive Attachment Disorder(can't trust and form relationships easily) I wonder why?? Her own parents sexually abused and neglected all 6 siblings. They have to be separated because of sexual behaviors between them. Wilkes County in Wilkesboro, N.C. also never charged or prosecuted these abusers. So they are free to do it to more innocent children! I am fighting Wilkes Co. DSS in N.C. with everything I have, but the real warrior that we need is Jesus Christ and people like you to pray. May God Bless and Be With Each of You. Please write if you can.

Hello Debby, I'm so happy that you found this site and are able to let your feelings out, and your pain. I and all the rest of the moms here know how all-consuming that pain can be, and you need to be able to talk about it, so you talk about it here anytime, as I told you, I'll ALWAYS listen! That's wonderful that you had three hours with your Michael, those three hours will forever be etched onto your heart, and you'll always have them to remember! That stretch of road has certainly claimed many lives, your Michael's too, I pray that they do something about it, to protect others from a similar tragedy.
I know sweetie that you ask yourself why your Michael, we all have asked that some time or another over our own children, but God's ways are not our ways, in time we'll learn the answers!
I am so happy to hear that the prayers being said for you are bringing you some comfort, I know you're in a lot of pain right now, but as I said, you can talk here anytime, Yvonne (dovesfromheaven) also sent you a loving post, so you can see, you're not alone. We all know the grief that you feel right now. And you post here anytime you feel like it, you have love and support here, and more importantly, prayers! May Our Lord hold you very close to Him, as I know He is doing, and may you feel His love, for He truly feels your pain. God bless you and your family, and love and prayers to you,
Luv Sandy

Hello Sandywyatt, I'm so happy that you posted here for prayers, what a tragic situation for you and this sweet little child! With all her problems in her little life, then finally bonding with you and your husband, only then to be ripped from your home, I know you've suffered a 'mini-death' of your own over all this, and you must be in such shock and grief! You're the only real mommy that this precious child knows, so I pray that they come to there senses and return her back to your home as quickly as possible. That's where she belongs! She's already been through enough pain and turmoil in her little life, she needs to be returned to your home, with your great love for her, for that's what she needs so desperately! Little Rochelle must be so confused right now! I join you in your fight with the beaucracy of your county, and do ask our great warrior Himself to step in and right this wrong. Dear Lord, you know of this terrible situation, please rectify this wrong, and restore one of your little precious ones back to the loving home You have provided for this child, and let the Holy Spirit reveal the light and truth, that Rochelle needs to be put back into the only loving home she has ever known. Thank you, dear Lord, I know You will turn this awful situation around. Many prayers for you and your family, and especially little Rochelle, that she be returned to your loving home asap. God bless you and our love and prayers are with you,
Luv Sandy

Hello Yvonne, I was so happy to see a post from you! I know you're a very busy lady lately, so I'm happy that you took some time out to post! I'm not doing too badly, Spring has arrived, and I love nature, it renews my soul and I feel so close to Our Heavenly Father when I'm out in His wondrous creation. It also makes me feel close to Shane, because he worked for a local conservation area close to our home.
Yep, I agree, Yvonne, that's all we can do, is get through each day, whether it's a hard one or a good one, take each day one at a time, and realize how fragile life can be. Thank you for your very kind words, Yvonne, but I have lots of help from Our Lord and I always call upon Him to help me with my posts, in order to hopefully help others. I also ask my Shane to say a prayer for me before I come here, so as I said, I do have wonderful, loving help! I'm happy that my words to other moms are a comfort to you, and your words to other moms are always filled with love yourself, and I treasure reading them too! What a beautiful prayer you said for me, tears welled up in my eyes as I read it. You're a wonderful, loving person, Yvonne, and I know I've said it before, but it's so true, you're a treasure to this Circle and even through your own pain, you reach out to others! Just as Babbs (Barbara) said, it helps to be able to give back, because we surely know the pain of each other, and it helps us to reach out to others. I hope you're doing alright too, I'm happy to read that you read all the posts, and I hope when you have the time, you'll continue to post here, your posts are filled with love, compassion and understanding, and that shows how your light is shining for others! Continued prayers and love to you,
Luv Sandy

To all of my friends at this wonderful site:
I do not even know where to begin! First of all, Thank you Sandy for all of the prayer and advice you have given me over the past several days. You are a Godsend and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. You were my sole source of communication the past few days. I thought that beliefnet was gone, but in fact it was my computer. We had to get some new gadget to put into the back of the computer. (My husband takes care of all that stuff) I was able to send e-mail and receive e-mail, but not get onto the internet. I was mortified, because this is my home away from home. When my kids are napping or asleep, I go to the computer and this site first. I hope that you all know how much you mean to me. The only e-mail address I had was Sandy's, I was so worried that I would lose touch with all the people that I care so much about. If anyone wants to send me their e-mail, I would so much appreciate it because I am now worried that beliefnet will be gone and I will have no way of knowing how all of you are doing. Eudora, LOVE2U, dovesfromheaven, babbs, and so many others......I post my e-mail address here for one simple reason. I care and want to know that all of you are okay. If you want to e-mail me, please do. That way, if something does happen I will still be able to hear from you.

Thank you all so much for your prayers for my family and especially my grandmother. She was released from the hospital a couple days ago. She had two stents put in. The doctor's said she should be fine. My uncle has a wing in his house that he built just for her. She still has not made a decision yet as to whether or not she will move in, but we are praying that she will. We all firmly believe that staying alone in her home is no longer an option. If she blacks out, or forgets that she has something on the stove, it could be devastating. But, she is so strong-willed and independent, she doesn't want to give up her individuality. I don't blame her. I would probably be the same way.

Anyway, I love you all and will do my best to get caught up on all the back posts.
Thank you again and love always,
Tammy Cooper

Dear brandi_maria:
I will most definately pray for the 7yr old hit by a car. I believe in miracles and I know personally that the power of prayer can create one. Thank you so much for posting your prayer request here. I know from personal experience that these wonderful people will "storm heaven with prayers" for your loved one.
Love always,

Dear deborahpoo:
I love the outside as well, and everytime that the sun shines through the clouds, I realize how lucky I am. That even when I have so much stress and turmoil in my life, the Lord shines down on me. I will most definately pray for you, your family, and your son Michael.
Love always,

Hi Tammy! Gosh how I've missed you as I know the other moms have too! I'm happy that I was able to help you out, and I'm happier to hear that it was your computer, and that it's now fixed!
We've all missed your warm, loving posts and friendship, so I'm thrilled that your computer is back on track.
I'm so relieved to hear that your grandmother is OK, I know you would have e-mailed me otherwise, but as I said, my own husband had those same procedures, and is now fine too. It must be such a huge relief for your family, knowing that she's well, and still not wanting to move, :). We'll all pray that she does change her mind and move in with your Uncle, that'll put the family more at ease, knowing she's not alone. Good to have you back, sweetie, and keep watching your mail! Love and hugs,
Sandy

Dear uphex:
Thank you so much for praying for all of the wonderful parents that post here. I know that they appreciate it so much. That is how I became part of this wonderful site. I just came and read the posts and realized how much knowing how they were doing was so important to me. Now, I have developed friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. My heart is now connected to each and every one of them. I just love every one here and they have accepted me into this circle with open arms. I am eternally grateful. I hope that you will become a part of this circle as well.
Love always,

Dear eudora (Miss Barb):
Oh Barb, I just want to hug you so much and take your pain away. That pain will never go away and I know that, but you have every right to be "down". We are here to listen to your feelings no matter what they are. We love you and pray for you everyday. I love what Sandy said about carrying our children under our hearts for 9 months. My husband loves our children deeply as well, but he (and most men I think) are not as "bound" to them as we are. That is why they seem to "rebound" from things faster and stronger than we do. I used to try to figure out my husband's emotions all the time, but I finally gave up. He has his own way of dealing with "stuff" and so do others.
Like Sandy said, always post here when you can, we will always listen and pray. We love you.
Love always,
Tammy Cooper

Dear dovesfromheaven:
I pray for you and your family so much and when I do I pray that the dove sends you a sign. I hope that you now how much I treasure the dove now. When I see them my thoughts immediately go to you and your Joe.
I am so happy for your children and their pregnancies. What an honor to have them name their child after Joseph. Whether first name or middle, that is such a tribute to the wonderful life your son led. His spirit is shining in so many other lives!
Love always,

DEAR HOTHOOSIER, THANK YOU FOR KEEPING ME IN YOUR PRAYERS. EVERY ONE HAS BEEN SO HELPFUL WITH THE KIND WORDS AND THOUGHTS. SOME DAYS I JUST COME HOME TO REREAD EVERYONES PRAYERS AND THINK HOW LUCKY I AM TO HAVE FOUND THIS PRAYER CIRCLE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR FINDING THE TIME TO HELP EVERYONE.

Dear LOVE2U (Miss Verna):
What a wonderful prayer. I also am "catching up". It is okay. We have the love and prayer in our hearts everyday for the wonderful people here. Others know that and understand, when we cannot post we still always think and pray for them.
Please take care of yourself and your computer. We need you and love you.

I love you and thank you for your kind words toward me and my family. I don't deserve them. You all have been the reason behind me coming here. The love, compassion, and prayer toward so many people have made me what I am. I thank you and God for that!
I will always pray for you and everyone here. Even if beliefnet is no longer here. I have developed friendships that I hope will last a lifetime!
Love always,
Tammy Cooper

Dear LOVE2U (Miss Verna):
I just can't tell you enough "thank you".
You(and others), keep saying that I am a Godsend to you, but please know that it is just the opposite. I cannot even put into words what you and everyone else have done for me. My life is forever changed because of all of you. We share a lot of unfortunate circumstances, all of you more than me, but because of that, I am now a part of you all forever. I never want to lose touch. That is why I have asked you all to e-mail me your addresses. If beliefnet goes away, I don't want to lose you all.
Please know how much I love and care for you all. My life is so much greater because of all of you!
Love always,

Dear eudora (Miss Barb):
I need this circle as well! It was most definately inspired by our Lord. We all are different and we have love and compassion inside of us. If more people cold hear us and communicate with us, a lot of the problems in this world would not exist.
I wish I could hug you in Florida! I was born in Dunedin (My dad was stationed there during Vietnam with the Air Force. I was born July 23, 1971). I still have family there. They live in the Clearwater area. I wish you would e-mail me your address. I would love to send you some pictures. I still need to e-mail Sandy. I have had her address for a couple days now and have still not gotten my stuff together for her. I am sorry that I have been busy. It is next on my "To Do List".
Please know how much I pray for you and your family and everyone else here. I am still playing "catch up" and will post to everyone here. I love you all.
Love always,

Dear deborahpoo:
I will pray for the child's sister at your school. How awful for her family to have to go through such a tragedy. I truly hope that she pulls through. With the love and prayers at this site, I know that miracles do happen. I hope you know what a caring person you are to bring this prayer request to this circle, while you yourself are hurting so. I pray that the Lord will lay His Hand upon your shoulder and give you and your family comfort.

Dear Sandywyatt:
I will pray for your child, Rochelle, with all of my heart and soul. She needs prayer and stability in her life. I pray that the court allows you to give her the love in your heart and the home you welcome so freely to her. It never ceases to amaze me how so many families want to give children a loving home, but there is so much red tape to go through to give it to them. I pray that the Lord shortens the spool of tape for you and Rochelle. You sound like a beautiful person that would give her the loving home that she so deserves.
Love always,
Tammy Cooper

God,
I have lived the pain of losing three children, and you never abandoned me or my wife. I do not know your will, I have just the pieces you gave me, I am grateful for those. Other parents here and around the world are suffering daily from the death of a loved child. I ask that your will be apparent to each of them and that you will give them the strength to listen and understand the messages you send to them. Ease their hearts and soften the tears. In Jesus Name, Amen

Hello papabear1701, I'm so sorry to read that you and your wife have lost three children, that's so tragic. It's hard enough to lose one, but three is beyond my comprehension. Your strong faith has carried you through these heave crosses, I have no doubt. May your own and your wife's heart be eased, and you're so right, somewhere in the world right now, another parent is losing a child, we're not alone in our grief. Thank you for your lovely prayer, and may God continue to bless you and your wife,
Luv Sandy

Hello Everyone:
I want to thank everyone for the kind words you all express to each other over each of our loss. But for me even thro it has been nine years next month that I lost my first son at 17,it seems just like yesterday. I cry each and everyday for both my sons. They don't see the sun or feel the wind. They were my life. Mom was a very sweet name that I enjoyed hearing but hear it no more. Nor will I ever go to weddings or have the plesure of holding my grandchild. What else is there in life? I ask myself that over and over. I hope the very best for all of you. It does seem to work for you all this site. I have tried but my loss is my loss. I will never be able to move on like you all have. It just has deepened. What I always wanted in life God took from me. But I have tried,I really have.
