Please pray for me and my wife

We are going through a real trying time right now in regards to having children after the death of our son. I am in absolute turmoil. Pray that the Lord comforts me. Pray that my wife is consoled.

My wife and I took a couple of children from foster care on Friday with the intentions of adopting (it’s been three months since our son died). People warned us it was too early but we didn’t believe them. It hit me like a ton of bricks. We will be sending them back this week most likely. You can’t imagine the pain we are going through right now. My wife aches to have children and right now, I cannot bear to have more. But the guilt of sending them back is unbearable at times. Please, please pray for us.

I am offering my heartfelt prayers for you right now. God is with you.

My prayers are with you…

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of death. Amen.

My wife and I lost our son at the age of 18 two years ago. It does not matter how old your child is, it hurts all the same.

Dear Son of PJS2EJS…Please pray for your mother and father. They love you so dearly and miss you very much. We join with in in your prayers to our Heavenly Father to give comfort, peace, and joy to your earthly parents. We ask our heavenly father for wisdom for these parents to allow their hearts time to heal.

Your will be done, dear Father.

We ask this in the name of Christ our Lord! Amen.

God Bless you both, please take heart and know you are in Christs hands. You both have my prayers. :gopray:

A very true statement.

A prayer for all those parents who have lost children. May God ease the pain
