Please keep Christine in your prayers... While on mission trip in Haiti I had a seizure. An MRI back home revealed an abnormality that turned out to be a brain tumor at the surface of the right side of my brain. I will have surgery on May 3rd to biopsy/hopefully fully remove the tumor, but until the neurosurgeon sees how it is situated, he will not know if its encapsulated or integrated with the brain tissue. Please pray for the best report and removal outcome.

Satan does not stop with the destruction of only a marriage. Every stander we know has suffered a secondary attack, either through their own health, serious family illness, financial or relational problems. Would you take time right now to pray that Jesus would bind the attacks of the Enemy from men and women who are standing for their marriage to be restored by God.

We thank God for the parents who have taken a stand to pray for their son or daughter's troubled marriage. We also hear from people who have taken a stand for their pastor's marriage, or for the marriage of a friend. Pray for all marriages that God will find one prayer warrior to stand in the gap for any couple who is fighting the spiritual battle to save their family.
Please ask the Lord to give the Steinkamp Family wisdom in every Ministry matter, that His will might always be done through Rejoice Marriage Ministries.
Please pray for all the "other persons" that they will come to know the Lord and realize the sinfulness in their own heart. We pray if they have left a spouse and children that their own marriage will be restored by our mighty Lord. May the Lord sever, crush and destroy all their soul ties between our stander's spouse and all ungodly relationships.
Let's pray that our stander's prodigal spouse will hear the Lord's soft voice and fear the Lord and run from their sinful lifestyle. May they cry out to the Lord, confess their sins, repent and ask the Lord to save and transform their harden heart. May their heart be soften and follow the Lord believing in His mighty power. May the Lord have the spouse leave the OW and guide them home to their waiting spouse and children forever. To God be the glory!
Please pray for all standers' children who are facing the consequences of divorce and trying to understand why one parent is choosing to leave their family. Pray for the ones who are fighting rebellion and depression. Lord, give wisdom and knowledge to the standing parent.
Above all else, we pray that every stander, every prodigal, and all our loved ones will come to have a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. That is the only way they will ever find the peace they are seeking.
Pray that every returned prodigal and every prodigal who desires to come home will realize they must have no contact, for any reason, with the other person in their life. Pray for total restoration and rebuilding of their marriage.
