"My husband plans to divorce me. I assured him of my stand which made him angrier and more adamant about leaving. Right after this, I opened my Bible to Jeremiah 18. Praise the Lord, I felt God telling me He was about to move and to trust Him. The next day I found that another couple, our best friends, are fasting for my husband's salvation. I can't wait to see God move." (Florida)
“One month ago my testimony was that my husband had left the OW. He travels often but asked to stay with the kids and me for a few days between trips (waiting for his new apartment to become available). So much indicates that this mountain is so huge it will never come down. But then there are small miracles like my husband and my kids and me laying in bed watching TV and eating dessert. The following weekend, we went to dinner and the Passion concert. My husband got to see our children worship God with their whole hearts. I kept thinking 'are you kidding me'. My kids and I have used the song 'One Thing Remains' as a prayer for our family and their dad. When it comes on the radio we turn it loud and with tears in our eyes we proclaim it! What a miracle that my husband got to see it first hand and hear what we are standing on. God is faithful. And if He can arrange all this in a few short weeks, I'm sure He can handle all the rest. I chose to rest knowing He's got this.”  (Colorado)  
"One year ago I found your site searching for help. I was facing separation and probable divorce. Two months ago my husband came back home and has agreed to marriage counseling. We are sharing a room and a bed once again; we are making plans for the future. It's tentative and slow going which is why I hadn't testified yet. But I felt God reprimand me for not sharing. God has worked a miracle and He is not done yet. Unless God builds the house it can't stand. I know he is working on the building and I praise His name and testify to all His blessings."  (Michigan)
"I have been praying for the salvation of my prodigal husband and restoration of my marriage. We still live together although he  wants out. I heard that he bought a Bible which he is reading at work. I feel that God is at work and that it is a good start. Also he told someone that he is 'on hold' in terms of leaving our matrimonial home. I feel that it is the hand of God that He wants to restore the marriage while he is in the house with me and the children.”  (Zimbabwe) 
"I can't thank and praise God enough for all He has done in my life. My husband and I have been going house hunting to look for our first home and we are spending every chance we get together. He is waiting to move into our new home together and start fresh. Thank You, Lord for restoring my marriage." (New York)
“Thank You God for showing me while I was discouraged about continuing my stand, that He is working on my marriage restoration. I was not seeing much progress even though I was praying and fasting so much, but yesterday in the morning I prayed that God would touch my husband's heart in the way that he begins to repent from his sinful lifestyle. Later he came to my office and we talked for almost one hour about repentance and forgiveness. PTL, He is answering my prayer and I know with certainty that God is working on my husband and on my marriage restoration. My God is wonderful, thank you for your priceless prayers.”  (Dominican Republic) 
"My husband has been in the far country for months. In the last couple weeks he's become more communicative. Yesterday in an email he referred to reconciliation and the possibility of a future together. A couple weeks ago he stated he was never coming back. I see evidence of my prayers every day. I am so grateful to God for bringing Charlyne and Bob's loving support into my stand." (Wisconsin)

"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)

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”  Ezekiel 36:26 
"My beloved spouse and the other woman have split up and because God is so amazing she has taken a job on the other side of the world! Praise the Lord my husband is on his way home!”  (United Kingdom)
"In that day I will restore David's fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be"  Amos 9:11 
“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” Proverbs 30:5 
"Our children and I have had to learn to live on less financially. This is a blessing as we have learned not to worship the idols of the world. Our daughter applied to her dream college. I became worried about the huge costs. We got a letter stating that she received an academic scholarship that will take care of that worry. The following day we received another blessing. Seven days prior to losing our home we learned that we would remain in it and the sale had been cancelled. We worship a loving God." (Pennsylvania)

“All praise and glory to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! My husband suddenly came home yesterday after months of not hearing anything from him. During that time I prayed and declared daily, submitting my life, my marriage and all things to my Heavenly Father. God is faithful to His promises! This impossible thing was not accomplished by anything I did; in fact the only thing the Lord asked of me in regard to my marriage was to not give up and stand in agreement with Him and He did everything else. I have full faith and trust in Him that He will be with us as we now begin the healing process. I will continue in my prayers and declarations for all my fellow standers. I pray that God gives you all strength and endurance as you stand in agreement with our Lord for your precious marriages.”  (Canada)

"For the first time in several years, my prodigal husband and I attended Sunday School together. I am thankful to God and praise Him for this. I know God is working." (South Carolina)

"I did not hear from my covenant during the Thanksgiving holidays. When I cried out to God to comfort the pain, I received a message from my husband stating he learned to text message on Thanksgiving and sent me the first one. Since it was his first time, he sent it to the wrong number. Our God is alw11ays right on time." (Texas)

"I do not understand all of the things God is doing in my marriage. My husband is near the end of the rope and ready to reconcile our marriage. I have stood in prayer for his soul more than our marriage because he does not know the Lord. At times I wanted to quit but this ministry and my mother have been my lifeline back to God to continue to pray for my husband’s soul. I praise God and pray for my husband's return home soon." (Ohio)
"I will write to you very soon. Last Saturday, I was remarried to my covenant husband. I had been praying for nine years. God's will has been done and He gets all the glory. He is not a man that He should lie." (Oklahoma)

"I am a mother praying for the marriages of both of my daughters. I was praying that the Lord would allow our family to hear from our sons-in-law for Canadian Thanksgiving. We received a card in the mail from our son-in-law who has not contacted us in a long time. The words he wrote in the card, were written straight from his heart." (Canada)

“I want to praise our Lord Jesus. I have been standing for many years. Through this there were women, separation, divorce and more. God has removed many women from my prodigal's life each time as I prayed. A few months ago a new woman entered my husband's life and I cried out to God, ‘Why?’ I prayed and asked God to help me let go. I know He is in control and works all things out for my good. I realize that there is still work to be done in me to refine me and only God can do that wonderful work. So I let go. I know it's a new territory for me but I rest assured that He will walk with me and hold my hands. I love You Lord! Praise be to Him! What a blessing that He loves me so much that He wants to change me more and more.” (Pennsylvania) 
“I am standing for a second time for my marriage and have grown so much and learned so much about our Lord. I never took fasting seriously but I cried out to God and he gave me Isaiah 58 and taught me about fasting as I cried out to Him ‘Lord what should I do?’ Praise God, my husband spent the whole weekend with us and went to church with us on Sunday!”  (California) 
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.  Psalm 143:10

“Something amazing happened this week! A girl I went to school with 20 years ago and haven't seen since, contacted me to tell me that a few weeks ago she was on a train sitting opposite a man she had never met. Every time she looked at him she saw my face. She couldn't understand it or explain it but felt the Lord prompt her to speak to him. She asked the man if he knew me and he answered 'yes, she's my wife.' It was my husband! He went on to explain to her that we were separated and don't have contact with each other. She told him that she was sorry to hear that and would be praying for him. She then invited him to a church service. He declined but praise the Lord; He is working on my husband, my mountain, the salvation of my family and the restoration of my marriage! Watch this space....”  (United Kingdom) 
"Our marriage problems brought about financial challenges but I cannot begin to tell you how God has provided." (South Africa)
"My husband told me the military is transferring him to North Carolina. I was upset that we would be hours away from him. After much prayer and crying, God spoke to me and said to stop worrying because He is sending my husband to the city where we were married and lived for months until we were transferred years ago. We made many memories there and I pray those memories we made there will jog his memory of the love my husband has for me and our daughters." (Kentucky)
"Friday nights are especially hard and this past Friday afternoon at work I prayed for God to provide something fun to do over the weekend. Within an hour I received an invitation to go out to supper with my neighbor, whose husband left her and her two children years ago. Not only did we have a great time, I was able to share with her more about standing." (Rhode Island)
"I continue to praise my Heavenly Father for He is faithful. This past December was the most meaningful I've ever experienced. All month long, the topic for every Christmas program, sermon, and message I heard was on nothing is impossible. Thank You, Jesus for Your promises." (Ohio)
“I have been separated for a few years now and when my husband and I sat down to talk about the divorce he said he did not want one. We are taking it really slow because he has a non-covenant. We had friends come into town and he ended up coming over and slept on the couch. But early in the morning I was sitting on the porch reading a Bible plan for love and marriage about adultery. I read Proverbs 6 and he seemed to be listening. GOD is so good!”  (North Carolina) 
"Our anniversary was last week. I surrendered the day to God first thing in the morning. I waited all day long hoping the flower delivery truck would come. At 9:35 P.M. my prodigal husband pulled in the driveway with two beautiful bouquets of flowers. I praise God His delivery person was better than what I had hoped for." (New York)
"Thanks to God and your ministry my husband and I are celebrating a year since we got together after a long separation. It has been a difficult year to me since he did not come home as the man I would like him to be. Now he is attending church with me and the kids every Sunday and praying with us each morning. I am sure the Lord is doing the cleaning while I keep my lips zipped." (Mexico)
"My husband and I accompanied our children to a new family therapist. When we got there, she was using the time to get to know us expressed how she feels that we needed to seek marriage counseling because she feels our marriage can be saved. I felt God was using the therapist to let my husband know of good signs in our marriage rather than the bad ones." (California)

"After years of divorce, my husband and I were remarried last night with our two children as witnesses. Your ministry was a gift from God during this walk of faith." (Ohio)

“Our divorce has been dismissed! My prayers have been answered! Praise God! I got an e-mail from my attorney and he said the dismissal papers were signed. He said my husband could always change his mind. I said he will not because God has done this! My husband is going to need LOTS of prayers... the roadwill not be easy for him or me but together with GOD and LOTS of prayer and support we can do this. Then today as I was driving to my daughter’s home, I saw a Covenant Transport truck, and it was being followed by a Swift truck! I was thanking  our Heavenly Father the whole time.”  (Oregon) 
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

"To God be the glory. My husband came home suddenly a few days ago. God is good." (Texas)

“Praise God, one of my estranged husband's friends from church just found out about our separation. My husband contacted him out of the blue to say hi. He said he felt led to come alongside my husband to see if he could help him as he and his wife suffered the same situation and were helped by godly men from the church to put their marriage back together. I've been praying that God would build a hedge of thorns around my husband and put people in his life who would guide him back to our family. This friend asked me why I had never said anything to him and I told him that I didn't have to, God took care of it for me! Zipping the lips to everyone but God and God is answering my prayers. Standing and praying for the restoration of our marriage.”  (Idaho) 
“I have been standing for a few months. My children and I have been attending church regularly, today my prodigal attended with us. He hasn't attended in a while. On our way to church we see a church named 'Covenant.' The service was about forgiveness and second chances. PTL! My prodigal hasn't returned, but God continues to show me we are on the path to restoration of our relationship with God and our marriage!"  (Texas) 
“The Lord has provided more than enough for my son and me. I have always wanted a house with crystal doorknobs. Every doorknob in our new home has crystal doorknobs! Today I told my husband he could stay home with the boys after the new baby arrives if he wanted to. In faith I declare it will happen! We can be assured that God will provide and He is faithful! Praise God!”  (Texas) 
“This evening as part of our church service we had a time of open prayer and prayed for all heads of families and households. Would you, dear standers, join in this prayer that all these men would become fully aware of their responsibilities as God sees them - whether they know the Lord or not at this time and whether they are present with or absent from their family? Would you join in this prayer that by the power of His Holy Spirit, God would speak to each heart and bring each family leader to be the man that God created them to be.”  (United Kingdom) 
“I'd been struggling without a job, supported by my parents who are already in debt. Conversations with my spouse were terribly strained due to finances. BUT GOD! God asked a friend at church to forward a government job application to me while my spouse and I were living in his far country during a brief reconciliation. I got appointed and the Lord’s hand was on each step of it! Great pay, good timing, a daycare for the baby. Jesus turned me from a burden to a blessing for my parents! The Lord has been softening my prodigal's heart. He may come to meet the baby this month. I’m so humbled and thankful. My Potter is shaping me and my life. Thank You Jesus!”  (India) 
"At the beginning of our separation when letting close family know our situation, they would ask questions. I refused to answer and just asked for prayer. I know that was God speaking to me and telling me to not give up and to stand for my marriage. When I get discouraged and my faith feels low, I thank God for always picking me back up. I give God all the glory." (Virginia)
“This testimony it's not so much about my spouse or myself. Nothing has changed there. It’s for my children. They have started to turn to God for all their needs. They say, ‘Dad, we are watching you and have faith in you, and we want to live like you live, making a stand. Holding on to what’s right in God's eyes.’ My two youngest are little prayer warriors. My oldest told me without me as an example he would have fallen to the enemy already! My oldest daughter told me she left her life of sin, and now lives with her pastor's family because of how she sees I live my life, seeking God for all my answers, living for His promises. When you are right with God, all things come together! My spouse is running away as fast and as hard as she can. But no one can out reach the arm of the Lord. I waiver at times, but God! I stand!”  (Georgia)
"I praise God for my prodigal’s attitude toward me lately. He has sent very nice email and it is encouraging. Normally after this, I would take it upon myself to contact him and beg for reconciliation only to be shot down. This time God is telling me to wait on Him to work on the other side of the mountain and I am going to listen." (Kentucky)
“This morning I asked God to speak loud and clear, write it on the wall. My husband said he is done. The scripture I cling to is Luke1:37. On an errand with my son, I saw a car with a license plate that said ‘With God all things are possible.' I had to take a picture of it because I said this is not a coincidence. I still believe God will restore my marriage despite it being so dead. I have that license plate to remind me to keep standing. So when my husband comes home, to God be the glory! If I give up, how will my family and friends see God’s glory?”  (North Carolina) 
"Feeling like I have bitterness, I asked God to help me forgive. I asked God for a Rhema word. Opening my Bible I found Matthew 8; 'He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying "I do choose, be clean.'" I also found the same word from another source where I get daily scriptures. Glory to God." (Colorado)
  “I fasted weekly and prayed every night for my husband’s salvation. We were divorced but he is now home. He feels God is calling him back. He says that he felt my prayers and cries. We are getting remarried this week.”  (Mississippi)  
"I have just come back from church and a couple who were involved in counseling told me that they were getting married again after four years of divorce. God is so good." (South Wales U.K.)

"Praise the Lord, we just celebrated our second anniversary of a marriage restored. God is faithful. Thank you, Jesus for carrying me through and calling me to this situation. Nothing is impossible for the Lord." (Minnesota)
