From St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church
Corpus Christi, TX
All of you will be remebered daily in the prayers of the church and at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist each Sunday until Gabriel goes home to God.

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who
sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the
joyous; and all for your love’s sake. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I ask that you send your comfort. When the words in our prayers fail us - and they so often do in times of suffering and turmoil - we ask that you draw us close and still listen to the cries coming from the depths of our hearts, even though we may be able to neither voice nor understand them.

Please send your blessings, your hope, and your peace to the Guthrie family. Please touch them deeply in this time. You are the God of those who mourn and who are afflicted. You are the God of the broken-hearted; please heal their broken - and breaking - hearts. Hold them closely, Father. Remind them that you are the all in all, and that even though things may not make sense in this lifetime, we may hope and trust (and Father please give them that hope and trust!) that in the next world - in the world of your eternal reign - the broken will be made whole, and that which seemed chaotic will be made sense of. Then, we shall "know as we are known." (I Cor. 14)

In Jesus' Holy name I pray (as others do as well).


(With love to each of you,
ben guyer)

Heavenly Father, Bestow blessings and strength to the Guthrie family who in their goodness have shared their story with us. Help them to live in the hope of seeing their two babies again in your kingdom, perfectly restored!!

Help each of us who came to read their message to learn compassion and the other messages these two babies and famiy have offered to us. Amen.

7/27/2001 15:56

Guthries: I must help you realize that the eveil one is the one that brings illness and you learn to rephrase your wording and speak life to your baby. Claim healing by the stripes of Jesus for by those stripes we are healed. Totally give him and yourselves to Jesus and and begin to praise him, thank him for your baby's healing. remember to speaking the promises of God that he is our healer. Denounce any generational curses that might be in your family all the back to adam in the name of jesus and release health and well-being to your child. submit yourelves and your family to the Lord and denounce the lies of the eveilone and see what my God can do for you. Beleive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My nephew had to be tube fed, this prayer gave us great comfort:

"O God! Rear this little babe in the bosom of Thy love, and give it milk from the breast of Thy Providence. Cultivate this frech plant in the rose garden of Thy love and aid it to grow through the showers of Thy bounty. Make it a child of the kingdom, and lead it to Thy heavenly realm. Thou art powerful and kind, and Thou art the Bestower, the Generous, the Lord of surpassing bounty." -Abdul'l-Baha

To the Guthries Family,
I can't explain what you are going through, and won't attempt to try. As in Job, who knows the mind of GOD? It is enough for me, just to know that HE is there. But there is one thing I can say that you've probably already worked out in your hearts, that there is a wideness in GOD's mercy. You both, are living your testimony. I pray for your strength to increase, and for your faith to carry you further.

Mon Dieu, dans cette histoire où la fatalité se moque des lois de la statistique, je ne doute pas que tu aies le pouvoir de renverser toutes les prédictions des scientifiques, car tu es le Maître de toute chose. Je ne veux pas me résigner à demander le courage pour les Guthrie quand je sais que tu es le Tout-Puissant, et que tu peux, si tu le veux, faire un miracle; et comme tu es bon, je sais que tu entendras ma prière. C'est ce que je te demande aujourd'hui. S'il-te-plaît, fais que, contre toute attente, l'enfant de Nancy naisse plein de joie, de dons et de santé. Jésus, qu'il en soit fait selon ma foi pour le plus grand bonheur de ces gens. Répands sur eux ta grâce comme sur tous les malades et les infirmes qui ont croisé ton chemin pendant ton séjour terrestre. Et toi, Marie, mère de nos mères et de notre Dieu, intercède avec moi pour cette famille injustement frappée, et pour cette maman déjà si durement éprouvée.

7/28/2001 14:51

Dear Lord,
Have mercy on this family in their dire time of need. Through your grace and love grant them understanding, faith, hope, and courage to meet each day with strength and the endurance they'll need to make it through each day. Bond together dear family and through the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ he will see you through. Amen.

Dear Abba,
We love you and give you praise for you are an awesome and powerful God who can do all things. Bless this family dear God, give them a peace that only you can bring Lord. I pray for healing for the unborn child according to your perfect timing and will dear God. Thank you God that you love us and that one day, when we are home with you in our real home in heaven, you will explain all the things to us that we may not understand right now. May this difficult time for this family, draw them closer to you and may they be blessed in a mighty way. Praise you God, for who you are and all that you can do.
In Jesus' mighty name I pray.

You are the Most High, the One who was, is now, and is yet to come. The Guthries are facing an extraordinarily difficult period in their lives, Lord, and I pray that you will lavish them and their newborn with Your Grace, Peace, and Understanding. May we all be brought into a close, personal relationship with You, and may we take comfort that Your Salvation is our Rear Guard, and that we shall not fear the evil one, or his minions. They know their time is short, and are on the offensive against all of Your Faithful. May we wear the armor of You, and praise you through everything we do. May You continue to work wonderful things through the Guthries and all who suffer. It is by Your strength that they shall find comfort.
"I will love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
And say, when the death-dew lies cold on my brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ‘tis now."

7/31/2001 07:43

Lord, thank you for your gift of faith, and especially for yours in us. Give this family the strength they will need to face the trials ahead, and the grace to accept Your Will. Amen

7/31/2001 08:08

Dear Lord,
Please help this family to grow in their times of trial; bring them hope and the best understanding possible; hold them up and keep them strong for each other; bless this innocent baby. And, dear Father, please let their story be a reason for other families to have hope, and to be grateful for their own little ones, who are all precious gifts from You. May we never take for granted the health of ourselves or our loved ones, but always give you thanks for every wonderful day and hour that we get to spend together before You call us home. Amen.

7/31/2001 08:24

Father in the Name of Jesus, you said that if we ask anything from You and believe in our heart it will be granted. Lord you have the power to change heal and make whole. I ask you right now according to my faith to heal Gabriel Gunthrie. Thank you for answering and healing in Jesus Name Amen.

7/31/2001 08:35

I pray to the almighty to give your family the strength and serenity to accept God's will and the love you have for this beautiful child-may it ignite the hearts of men so that they learn to love one another-selflessly. God bless you and God speed

7/31/2001 09:34

Lord, please be with the Guthries through this trying time. Continue to provide them with the strength that they need. Eliminate some of the pain and suffering for all. If it is your will, I ask that you heal this child. If not, allow them to see the big picture and know that someday they will see their children again. In Jesus' name I pray. AMEN

7/31/2001 09:58
