“My spouse called me early one morning last week and wanted to come over to talk. I had a sick feeling that he'd changed his mind about trying to reconcile, but I was totally wrong! He wants to go ahead and end the separation and come home! He followed through with that so I can see he is serious. Praise Jesus May miracles never cease.” (Florida) 

“Praise God my marriage is restored. My husband texted me out of the blue, telling me he wants his family back, that he loves me very much and our children, and has learned to value me.”  (Nevada) 

"I was prepared to divorce my husband. Someone told me about your ministry. I seriously prayed and fasted for both my husband and the other woman. He returned with a repentant heart for God. Now my husband is thanking God and leading us in prayer." (Florida)

"My husband’s been home for a month. God gave me Psalm 107:28-31, revealing that our storm has been stilled, that our marriage is being restored. I know it's because God has finally gotten through to me and I am putting Him first. This past weekend we attended a marriage conference. My husband told me he is committed to me and mostly to our Lord. We've had some great moments. I thank God for this season. I know He needed to straighten me out, and now I know how to be a better companion. I give God the glory." (Texas)

“When my stand was just beginning, I received some nice dresses from my sister. One was a beautiful ivory one. When I tried it on, I pictured myself renewing my vows in it and prayed that would come to reality one day. My prodigal returned ten months ago, but I never told him of that prayer request. Monday he asked if I would like to renew our vows next month on our anniversary. He has already contacted our preacher & reserved the church for that day! We called our family and all are almost as excited as we are. 'All things are possible to him who believes.' All praise and glory belong to God.” (Texas)
"After months of not talking to my husband he called last week and wanted to meet me to give me the rest of my belongings. Yesterday he asked instead of just doing an exchange, if we could have dinner. I see God is softening my husband’s heart. I praise God for how He is working on my behalf."  (Pennsylvania)
"My husband finally left the other woman yesterday and has no place to go. He asked me if he could put his things in my garage. I said yes and he seemed thrilled. I pray my husband will hear the Spirit of the Lord." (Oklahoma)
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.  Psalm 13:5-6
"Several years ago my husband left our marriage and divorced me for another woman. The divorce turned me to God. I knew I could not be separated from God's love. As the pain started to melt into compassion for my then ex-husband I was able to forgive, and came to see that God was caring for both of us. One day my husband showed up at my door and was very contrite. He wanted to come home. He was a new man. He realized the hand of the devil had taken its toll. I welcomed him back with open arms. We are now remarried and happier than ever. Our remarriage is squarely based on Christianity." (Wisconsin)
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  Galatians 6:9
PTL! Giving God the praise for what He is doing in my life and my marriage. My wife and I are separated and there is another person. I began praying for both of them, that the relationship would end for the sake of their souls. A week later, my wife told me that the OM just wants to be friends. PTL! God is awesome! Stay strong standers!”  (California) 
"I began fasting and praying as the final divorce hearing was approaching. I prayed back God's Word to Him, praising Him that He could stop the divorce from going through. The day arrived and my husband came in, but the judge refused to grant the divorce. He told my husband to make contact with me. Surely even 'the King's heart is in the hand of The Lord; and He turneth it whithersoever He will.'" (United Kingdom)
"Our anniversary was approaching. I wasn't sure what to expect since my husband and I are separated and he has filed for divorce. I prayed and fasted for two days, praying that God would prepare me for that day. By the grace of God, my husband and I spent the entire day together and had a great time. That further confirms what God has promised me." (Georgia)
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34:6-8
"Today God blessed me with a double blessing. I had to drop my son off early this morning. I decided to treat myself to a coffee and muffin. I went through the drive thru and as I was about to pay I was told the lady in front of me had already paid. I felt so loved by God in such a tangible way. As I was driving home I saw a sign that spoke directly to me about my husband and I and was doubly encouraged. God gave me two signs of His love and faithfulness." (Canada)
“I was just reading Lori's devotional, ‘Things Are Not As They Seem.’ I was praying this morning before I read this and asking God for healing for my broken heart because my husband seems so happy with the OW and it just breaks my heart. This devotional was exactly what I needed this morning. I am just praising God that He hears and answers our prayers right at the exact moment we need them!  Praising God."  (North Carolina)  
"I heard nothing about the father of my daughters for many months, but we are not divorced. I'm waiting in my God. He is good. Thank God He helps me." (Puerto Rico)
“I had court today and was not required to be there but I appeared in hopes to save my marriage. My wife was not there and the judge dismissed the case. Praise the LORD. I know the LORD is working and I do not want to get in the way. This day has renewed my hope. I witnessed to the judge that I am standing in faith with Jesus Christ for reconciliation. I prayed against any divorces in her court room that day. Praise the LORD - there were no divorces! Thank You, Jesus for Your faithfulness and answered prayers! Hallelujah! I am still married!”  (California) 
“I have been having a battle of heart in standing for my spouse. Two weeks ago I cried to God give me a sign, please, to know I am supposed to stay standing in this. That afternoon on the way home from work a song came on that I associated with my husband  and I started crying I was in a different lane for some unknown reason and I looked up with tears in my eyes through the back window of the car in front of me and smiled. There was a van from Tennessee with Covenant Transportation on it and I laughed with a warmth in my heart. He answered me quickly and I'm back on track and thankful to a loving God.”  (Florida) 
O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago. Isaiah 25:1
"But if it were I, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” Job 5:8-9
“Thank the Lord for my many blessings. I talked with my husband today and we are going to start working towards rebuilding our marriage. Thank you for all the prayers and keeping me strong during this trial. We are going to work on us and fixing that which is broken.” (Arizona) 
"My husband has started to spend time alone with me when he picks up and drops off the kids. Our May court date was delayed to June, PTL! God is faithfully working on the other side of the mountain."  (Oregon) 
Join the many standers and prayer warriors who pray for all the court dates on ourCourt Pagepraying that they will be canceled.  

“This past summer, there has been more friendly contact with my wife than ever before. She has asked my boys and me to move in with her and even though she says it's for financial purposes only, I strongly feel that it's the hand of God moving toward my marriage being restored.”  (Texas)

“Since my husband left I have taken refuge in the Lord praying, fasting, and reading His Word, praying for the restoration of my family, the life of my husband and the care of my children. We have had very little contact with him.  Today He came to visit the children and brought presents for them.  Even though he does not want to talk to me, I know that God is working in his life and in his heart and one day He will make the miracle in my family.  I am holding unto the Lord and am standing firm.  I know that for God there is nothing impossible.  May God bless you to continue praying and fasting for restoration.”  (Uruguay)

"Praise be to God. My husband swore he would never come home or have anything to do with me. I pleaded with God to restore our marriage. The very next day my husband came home. God is working on me to forgive him and not listen to Satan who wants to destroy our marriage. Thank You Lord for protecting me." (Florida)

“My testimony has been a life changing moment. God has blessed my marriage with total restoration and now my wife loves me and she wants to marry me. In the Bible, Mark 9:23 (KJV) says, ‘All things are possible to him that believeth.’ This has been my year of great grace and I am happy to share what the Lord has done for me.”  (Georgia)
"I just want to encourage other standers. For the past year I have stood for my marriage against all the odds. My church and my family, no one believed that God could restore, But after a year of separation my husband and I are reunited. Our marriage is being restored. Don't lose heart. God still moves and removes mountains. Don't give up Keep praying!" (Washington)
“I was so excited to read the devotion about Tim Tebow. I have been standing for my marriage for over three years now. Things are up and down with my in-home prodigal, but recently things have really been improving. The one thing that makes me sad is that my husband will not go to church with my kids and me. We were watching the game on Saturday. I was so excited when the John 3:16 commercial came on, and everyone in the house was watching it, including my husband. And to make it even more exciting, halfway through the commercial, my son’s best friend popped up on the screen to say his part of the verse. His dad works at Focus on the Family, so he got to be a part of the commercial. It was very exciting, and we were all cheering for him. It was really a blessing from God to be able to hear His Word, even though we weren't in church.” (Colorado)
"After months of not talking and fighting, my husband suddenly came home. Before that I felt the Lord telling me to get ready. Praise God." (Hawaii)
"My prodigal spouse is home for Christmas after years in the far country. Praise to be God for this miracle. God is so wonderful and He does hear and answer prayers. Charlyne thank you for encouraging me to stand." (New Hampshire)
Praise His Holy name! After feeling completely lost and devastated when my husband told me not to go home and that he wanted a divorce, I turned to our Lord Jesus Christ for comfort. I made Him my rock and decided I need to walk in His path. A couple days ago my husband called me and told me he loved me and misses our family! He was so shut off to the idea of us working on our marriage. He told me he is confused, but I know that this is God's work deep in his hardened heart! He text me now saying good morning and asking about my day. I will continue to pray and keep on His path because I know our Lord Jesus Christ has great plans for us ahead in His perfect timing! "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.  (Arizona)
"My Mom gave me a couple articles to read that I knew were messages to me to keep praying for my prodigal and our marriage. One article was about a couple married many years and the other was a person describing their journey from the wilderness towards being saved. God always works things out to tell us what He needs to." (Minnesota)
"My husband recently moved to a new city and a new job. He called to give me new contact info. His address ends with 51. His home phone ends with 51 and his work phone also ends with 51. That same day I read to Charlyne's devotional on daily praying Psalm 51 for your spouse. I had to laugh. There are no coincidences with God. I know He is working." (California)
"My husband returned home to our family the week before Christmas! We are communicating well, attending church together, and building our family back! My husband is way more helpful around the house, more hands-on with our girls, and so positive and happy! I am thanking God for His faithfulness! I am also thanking Rejoice Marriage Ministries for the peace and encouragement I received from the daily devotionals, CD's and books! Keep standing....God does want to restore your marriage." (Texas)
"From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do." Isaiah 46:11
“I just had to share what a burden has been lifted from me after reading ‘How Does the Other Person Have Such Control Over My Spouse?’ God spoke to me through this devotional. I am worthy in Christ. I can now stop focusing on what I thought I was lacking and focus on praying for each of their eyes to be opened to the Truth. I am no longer buried under the lie of punishing myself for things beyond my control. I have been given a new perspective and all glory to God. I thank Him that He brings good even out of bad situations and uses everything for His purpose. God will fulfill His promises; we need to be still and know that He is God.”  (Maryland) 
"Last night I asked God to show me a sign to continue to stand for my prodigal spouse after the encouragement from reading the testimonies. Several moments later I received a random text from her. Tears began to pour. I'm learning to let go and let God. Still I stand." (California)

"My husband has been home 7.5 months now and it's been a glorious time. God not only removed my husband from darkness and sin but he removed me it, too. I was a bitter wife and didn't respect my husband the way God calls me to. To all standers, never give up on what God calls you to do. Your true unconditional love will knit your spouse's heart to you again. The other day I told the same story about how I knew my husband was the one and I expected my husband to tell the same story from 17 yrs ago but instead he said "when you showed me unconditional love." God will complete His good work." (Georgia)

"Years ago my husband walked out. It was devastating. I prayed and fasted and found Rejoice Marriage Ministries. Charlyne and Bob helped me to stand. Today, on our anniversary we are not divorced and are able to say that we survived being a statistic."   (New York)

"I give God praise because He is good. No matter how low some days may be, He always pulls me out of the pit of despair and gives me hope when I need it. Praise God we are never alone." (Virginia)
“PTL! Some months ago my prodigal stopped communicating with me. I continued to fast and pray and not be moved. A week ago he introduced our children to the OW. Still not moved, I told my children, respect her, honor your father, hate the sin but love the sinner as the Lord does. After a fast this week, I asked the Lord to show me He was working. My prodigal called and the first words out his mouth was a term of endearment he used to call me. I was shocked, I forgot that name he used to call me. Our Lord is faithful to His children and answers our prayers in many ways. I am standing on Isaiah 42:9, before it springs forth, He will announce it. Keep praying, fasting and praising. He is working it all out for your good. Thanks be to God.”  (Florida)
And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly....”  Luke 18:6-8a 
“My husband is living with me again. He loves me more than before and wants me to renew our vows. I am so very happy. I also have a better job now. Thank You Jesus, thank You my Lord.”  (California)
“I want to praise God and encourage standers to call on Jesus in every part of their lives. I had a difficult meeting coming up and the person I hoped would accompany me couldn't make it. I racked my brains to think who else I could ask. Then it dawned on me, I needed to ask Jesus to go with me. So before the meeting I prayed and read aloud Psalms 139 and 140 and I had peace. The difficult person I was meeting became cooperative and agreeable. I know God is showing me that seeking Him first is always the right way to go and this is a great example of how hardened hearts are softened.”  (England)
“God is awesome! We need to believe no matter what we see. God gave me a promise a few years ago. He said as quick as this has begun, is as quick as it’s going to end. Hallelujah, He is faithful! Just as He promised, suddenly the OW is gone. Keep believing for your miracle. For nothing is too hard for God. Don’t look at the circumstances that are going on around you, keep your eyes on Jesus. Thank You Jesus.”  (Connecticut)
"Sunday was my wedding anniversary and I had not spoken to my husband for weeks. I prayed and ask for a sign that would give me some encouragement because I couldn’t 'see' any hope for reconciliation. I decided to call and let my husband know I was thinking of him. As I was in church my unsaved husband sent a text and said he was in church and he would call me after service was over. More proof that God hears our simplest prayers and He is at work even when we can’t 'see' it." (California)
“Praises to God, I returned home to my wife after being a prodigal. I thank God that she was a stander and had faith that God was the redeemer of our marriage. I knew who God is, but on my own accord, I decided to live the lifestyle that I wanted to live. I was being led by Satan to believe that God would forgive me for leaving my spouse, and bless me with the other woman. How mistaken I was. God placed all kind of obstacle in the path of my defying His word. Thank You, God, for my wife and thank You for giving me another chance.” (Louisiana)
“My husband left many months ago but we still kept in contact until a Facebook posting. Contact was completely cut off and supposedly he had filed for divorce. I found RMM and learned what it was to stand for your marriage. I also learned how God felt about divorce and I decided to stand firm on God's Word no matter what. I continued to pray for my husband and my marriage. God’s Word has been and is my rock. I now thank Him and give Him the praise. My husband is no longer with the OW and we are on the road to healing and working out our marriage. I told him God can restore what we had before and better for His Kingdom. Amen!”  (Texas)
