~ C.P.R. MARRIAGE ENCOURAGEMENTS
What is your situation? Has your husband run off
in adultery, or maybe you have already even went through
a divorce already and are still holding onto prayer
and hopes for restoration? Do you feel like it is
too late and a hopeless situation? The devil has this
way of telling us that, and making it appear that
way, and many times we start to believe him, then
God shows us that we need to hang on to His promise
of the miracle we have asked for in faith. You need
to hang on to Gods promises! This page is for true
encouragement stories, and rhema words from God that
I hope will uplift your spirit and keep you hanging
on with hope for your miracle. It is on its way, it
I want to share with you a inspiring miracle testimoney
by Rev. R.W. Schambach from Tyler Texas. God sent
me these two books of miracle testimonys when I was
in the darkest pit during my marriage separation and
the enemy almost had me convinced to throw in the
towel. Yes, thats right, I said God sent these, and
He did. They just showed up in my mailbox out of the
blue for no reason on the lowest day of my marital
situation. And this story was one of the first two
that was laid out before me in opening the books,
both much like my own situation. When things like
this happen, you know it is the work of God, and He
is speaking directly to you. I pray this testimony
shines a light of hopeful inspiration into your situation
as well. :-)

It's Never Too Late - True story of salvation &
Some time ago, when I was in Seattle, Washington,
I preached a message about Lazarus. The Bible says
that Lazarus had been in the grave four days when
Jesus finally came. Although it seemed as if He had
arrived too late, He was right on time. He is never
too late. In other words, it's never too late for
Sometimes we put time limits on God. Mary and
Martha were limited in their faith. They said to Jesus,
"Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had
not died" (John 11:21, 32). They had forgotten
that Jesus was Christ, the Son of God - Emmanuel:
God with us. They had forgotten that Jesus is the
Resurrection and the Life. They didnt know that Jesus
had intentionally waited. He wanted His followers
to witness His miraculous power.
We should never try to figure out Gods timetables.
He is always on time. It's never too late.
After the service, a woman came to me and shoved
a piece of paper into my hand. She said, "Now
I dare you to say it's not too late." Do you
know what the paper was? A divorce paper, a final
decree. She has just received it from the judge. It
was final. The husband was gone. She looked me right
in the eye and said again, "Now, I dare you to
say it's not too late."
So I smiled and took her dare and said, "It's
not too late." She said, "What about that
paper?' I said, "You are looking at the wrong
paper. My paper says, What therefore God hath joined
together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:6)
This is what I believe. How long have you been married?"
She told me they ad been married for twenty-seven
years and have five children. I said, "That man
has no business leaving you." I laid hands on
her and said, "Holy Ghost, bring that rascal
to his senses and save him. Don't bring him back home
the way he is. Lord, save him and fill him with the
Holy Ghost." I looked at the woman and said,
"God home and get ready for your husband. He
Of course, that was easy for me to say. I was
leaving town. I am an evangelist. I can hit them and
run. But in all honesty, I believed what I had said.
My wife and I drove from Seattle to Philadelphia.
When we got to Philly, I had a letter, from that woman,
waiting for me. I opened it and the first lines said,
"Dear Brother Schambach, God is never too late!
God got a hold of that rascal, saved him, and filled
him with the Holy Ghost. The Lord brought him back
home and we got married all over again!"
That is the powerful aspect of faith. Take a stand
of faith and say, "Devil, you are a liar. I am
going to believe God for a miracle because He is going
to turn this situation around." Speak faith.
Speak to that mountain and that mountain has to obey
your words. That is how you will experience the power
Note: One of the things that I have noted with
Brother Schambach, he is straight to the point in
prayer request to the Lord, short on words and somewhat
crude in speaking..but based on many miracle testimonys
I have read coming from his revivals when he speaks
over someone and lays on hands..it happens...boom,
just like when Jesus commanded things done. But, you
can see that Brother Schambach does not mess around,
he propheses to the situation, declares it and commands
it, yet he does it in supplication to God. This is
the faith of the man...and Jerry said, he is a great
man of God and what makes him such a great man of
God is that he is a great man of faith!
Here is what you have to say over your husband
or wife that have strayed away, "Holy Ghost,
bring that rascal, ______, to his/her senses and save
him/her. Don't bring him/her back home the way he/she
is. Lord, save _______ and fill him/her with the Holy
Ghost! In the Name of Jesus, Amen!"
God Bless :-)
Wanted to share a word if praying for transformation
of already saved spouse, meaning they are born again
I just got this word in my email box one day.
This lifted me up because I had been struggling quite
often as to is my husband ever going to be transformed
into the Godly man he needs to be, and that I need
him to be in order for this marriage to work out.
It has been a long vigil for me, five years, and a
great deal of heartache, attacks by the enemy and
so on. So when it goes on and on without seeing great
change, the enemy can use that to work on you sometimes.
We should always remember to trust in the Lord and
know it is done, even if we cannot see it with the
fleshly eyes. But, I find myself sometimes thinking
my prayers are not working, what more can I do, etc..this
was a direct answer to questions like that, a very
good one...it helped me and I hope it helps you!
15. For this reason, ever since I heard about
your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all
the saints, 16. I have not stopped giving thanks for
you, remembering you in my prayers.
Paul gives thanks when he hears that the Ephesians
have faith because he is fully convinced and persuaded
that belief in the truth enters the believer into
God's family. He knows without doubt that God in Christ
Jesus sets each one that believes apart, places a
seal on them and begins a process of transformation
that will not relent until it is complete. Each one
is changed over and over again into a person that
can stand against any storm without wavering from
the faith, losing hope, giving up or being completely
Paul gives thanks because he knows that it is
not his responsibility to make sure these people live
a certain kind of life or change in any certain way.
He rejoices in the fact that God's Holy Spirit is
in each one purging out the old dead way of thinking.
God is replacing dead internal parts with healthy
living parts that function properly.
He casts out fear by replacing it with perfect
love. He defeats deception by replacing it with truth,
wisdom and understanding. He conquers the effect of
sin by providing forgiveness, mercy, gentleness and
restoration. He overcomes excessive destructive desires
by allowing enough suffering to develop self-control.
All this is fully brought together in repeated rebirths
that are like resurrections from a dead life. Ultimately
all things become new and each believe matures into
a strong servant of God.
I find it very reassuring that I can read this
last paragraph and relate to it even, God has done
all that in me pretty much the way it is stated...He
does let us suffer over and over until self control
is developed! I loved the fact that my husband is
not my worry..when he accepted Christ, he was sealed
for the transformation, and just like I have been
transformed, so shall he, and it would happen even
if I was nowhere around, because it is Gods thing..not
mine. All I really need to do is sit back, be a good
example and watch it happen..and that is pretty cool!
:-) God bless, Kristie
I want to give you a rhema word God gave to me
a long time ago in my battle for my marriage that
I found so awesome that I typed it up and kept it.
This is what the Lord has to say about your situation.
The enemy, a roaring lion, who comes to steal,
kill and destroy, has raided Gods flock of sheep.
He has devoured the sheep. By time the Shepherd arrives,
He finds that all that is left is a piece of a ear
hanging out of one side of the lions mouth, and two
leg bones hanging out the other side of the lions
The enemy tells the Shepherd, "It's too late,
its over, its dead, it is not worth fighting for."
But the Shepherd does not listen, he wrestles the
lion for the piece of ear and the two leg bones and
takes them away from the lion.
Why did the Shepherd fight for what the enemy
says is already dead and not worth fighting for? Why
did he not give up when it all seemed impossible,
just a piece of ear and two leg bones that looked
nothing but dead and gone?
Because The Holy Spirit says "As long as
they have a ear to hear and a leg to stand on Gods
Word, then it is not over - because what is dead,
I will give life again!"
This is not just some story I am telling you to
make you feel better, this is Gods Word........
Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
An enemy will overrun the land; he will pull done
your strongholds and plunder your fortresses.
This is what the Lord says:
As a shepherd saves from the lions mouth only
two leg bones or a piece of an ear, so will the Israelites
be saved, those who sit in Samaria on the edge of
their beds and in Damascus on their couches.
Praise God! God says that your miracle is not
based on what has been taken from you, but on what
you have left! What do you have left? The unconditional
love and forgiveness for your spouse and a great hearts
desire to restore your marriage. You have the truth
of Gods Word that He will restore your loved one to
Him and that He will restore your marriage to you.
You will be seeing a lot of Gods Word on your marriage
in the prayers below. You have faith, because faith
as small as a mustard seed will move your mountain
in the Name of Jesus Christ. You have the hope of
Gods promise to restore to you what the enemy has
stolen 7 fold. You have God on your side, and He who
is in you is greater then he who is in the world.
Lets praise and thank God that He can always work
with what we have left in every given situation, and
He loves doing so. Giving life to what appears to
be dead is testimony to the world that He is the almighty!
We love and thank Him for all He does for those who
seek him earnestly!
God bless, Kristie
