"I wanted a sign like the covenant trucks I keep reading about. So I asked for a sign I was to keep standing for my marriage. There are no covenant trucks in my area. While on vacation I saw a sign. It said in large print 'covenant' and under it read in small letters, 'chiropractic.' I began to laugh and praise God." (Nevada) (posted 1/10/2011)
"Praise God for an answer to prayers for my military son-in-law who recently deployed to Iraq. I asked the Lord to surround him with believing comrades. Today my daughter told me he is bunking with the chaplain." (Illinois) (posted 9/4/2009)

"I received my summons for divorce during the week, and I have prayed and prayed for my husband to return. On the weekend my husband told me that he loves me and does not want the divorce to go through. We still have a long way to go, but with God on my side I know that we can work all our problems out." (South Africa)

“My husband went with our son to a conference last weekend. He was late but got there just in time to hear a speaker talking about fathers, such great timing! Afterward they went to a nearby church so he heard more there. When he brought our son home they were talking about how good both were and my prodigal was already talking about going next year! Praise God!”  (Michigan)  (posted 2/20/2013)
"I thank and praise God that my husband called me today and said that he was sorry for what he has done to the family. He said that God is not allowing him to rest. Thank You, Jesus for giving me a glimmer of hope." (Nevada) (posted 8/28/2010)
“After months of struggling to give God complete control, I realized how much God wanted me to fully trust Him with my marriage. I called my husband after getting a concerning call from my doctor. My husband never called to show concern. I was deeply saddened but decided to trust God and keep silent. Later in the week my husband stopped by unexpectedly. He told me he took a day off work to come to my procedure, and he invited me to go to church with him. God is faithful!” (Florida)  (posted 3/12/2013)
"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised." Hebrews 10:35-36 (posted 3/27/2009)
“Yesterday was my fourth anniversary. My husband took me to a nice dinner. Glory to God. He told me that he loves me. He will visit my church soon he said. Praise His Holy Name.”  (California)  (posted 7/20/2012)
“PRAISE GOD! I just heard that my husband was over at a friend’s house this past weekend; in the course of one and a half hours, he mentioned me three times! He even said he was thinking about going and seeing me! Thank You Lord!!” (Florida) (posted 11/5/2011)
“I have been separated from my husband for awhile and I had filed for divorce. A week before our divorce was to be finalized he just started talking to me. He's still in another country, but now he's been calling me daily, telling me how much he loves me and wants to be with me and my son. At times I felt like giving up the stand, but when I read your daily devotionals and testimonies it helps me not to give up.”  (South Africa) (posted 10/7/2013)

“My suddenly happened last Sunday. My prodigal called and asked me to pick him up. The OW packed all her things and moved away. My husband has asked me and the kids to move in with him. Glory to God for His awesomeness. We still have some ways to go but praise God he is home with us. Trusting God for His promises of complete restoration and New Beginnings. God is always in control and on the throne making a way from no way. Thank You Lord for everything. Thank You Lord for bringing me through and I thank You for my husband and family too.”  (Georgia)

(posted 8/31/2012)
“God answered the prayer of my heart, which was that the Holy Spirit speak out to my husband, confirming that indeed we were still married in his eyes. This was the husband who kept saying he didn't see me as his wife anymore. My husband has begun his journey home. Just as the prodigal's father, I wait expectantly and with nothing but love to receive my prodigal spouse. God is faithful and never changing! He is worthy of all praise.”  (Florida)  (posted 1/22/2013)
"I thank God that I was given the opportunity to reaffirm to my husband that I will be obedient to God’s will to stand for my marriage, even if it means I have to wait the rest of my life. I thank God that He gave me the courage to stand up and say those words." (Missouri) (posted 1/30/2009)
"I am so thankful to the Lord! He is faithful and works in strange and beautiful ways. I've been standing strong for my marriage. My husband was unfaithful and gave up on our marriage while he was deployed. The military sent him to our home town when he was removed from active duty. To save money, he asked to stay in our home. He has accepted a job in another state with travel overseas, but is here in our home now. There has been no talk of ending things. God is moving!"  (Oregon) (posted 6/13/2011)
At times i felt the devil telling me that my stand wouldn't work. The scriptures are giving me hope and helping me be strong in my stand to pray my husband back to the lord jesus christ. Also stop divorce radio is a god send it play almost 247 in my house,car and job. I'm learning to cry out to the lord for help and answers or signs. This situation was very devastating but now im learning to be a better christian and a better wife this stand is teaching me so much im blessed that god has me standing for my husband and our family. Praise God He is so worthy. (Connecticut)

"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."  Mark 11:22-24 (posted 6/13/2011)
“God is true to His Word and faithful. At the start of my pregnancy, my husband decided to leave and said he wanted nothing to do with me or the baby. But I kept and keep believing God for a miracle and to soften his heart. My husband sent me texts about how the baby is doing and he wants to join me for my next appointment. This week he sent me a text that he misses the time we spent together. I praise God that soon my husband will be home and that He is pouring love in his heart. 2 John 1:6.”  (Texas) (posted 10/21/2013)
"Glory to God, every time I feel like I do not want to stand anymore, He reminds me that He is working." (Virgin Islands) (posted 11/21/2008)
"After ball practice my husband said he would take our daughter to get her new equipment. We were in two vehicles and our daughter decided to ride with her daddy. I got behind when we were leaving practice and my prodigal had pulled over on the side of the road to wait for me. I was smiling in my heart to know God had laid it on his heart to wait for me. Thank You, Lord." (Tennessee) (posted 3/5/2010)
"After asking God for another sign that my stand is His will, my prodigal called and asked if he could visit. We haven't seen each other for a long while. When he left I told him I loved him and that he was welcome home any time. Thank the Lord I had been following Charlyne's advice to keep the house in order for just such a sudden visit. Thank You, Lord for showing me You are moving my mountain, and for the ‘testing the waters’ visit from my prodigal." (Florida) (posted 3/6/2009)
“Praise God for hearing us when we pour our hearts out to Him! I was feeling a moment of weakness and cried out to God. I cried out about feeling so replaced by the OW; not only in my husband’s life but my in-laws’ as well. Well, God showed up and showed out! My in-laws just called me out of the blue wanting to check up on me. My mother-in-law even gave me her new number. They also said that I am still part of the family and that I am welcome to go see them whenever I want. Isn’t God good?! I couldn’t stop thanking Him and praising Him! Thank You Father! You are truly amazing!”  (Georgia) (posted 4/7/2015)

This is what the LORD says: "Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded," declares the LORD. "They will return from the land of the enemy. So there is hope for your future," declares the LORD. "Your children will return to their own land."  Jeremiah 31:16-17

And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.  Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.  James 5:15-16 (posted 5/12/2011)
"After nearly four years of standing, my wife asked me to move back in with her. We're both believers and have both been about as full of sin as we could be. When God did the heart work on both of us, He brought us back together. Things are still tenuous and she's watching me carefully to see the change, but praise Him we are back on the road together." (Texas) (posted 11/20/2004)
"Praise God, our Provider. I had surgery two weeks ago and was told today I could not work for another month. I do house cleaning to make ends meet, so I was distressed. I checked my mail upon arrival and the ladies ministry from my church sent me a check. My mom also gave me a check to help pay for a bill due that day. God is faithful and I know He will provide even more as I trust in Him." (Texas) (posted 5/28/2010)
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not yet seen. Hebrews 11:1. I love God and He loves me and my family. I have faith that my marriage will be restored and we will all attend church as a family.”  (United Kingdom)

"I just recently discovered this website. I just wanted to give some encouragement. I was a stander for three years while my husband was gone. He is now home and committed to being the husband God wants him to be. Our journey is definitely not over but is on its way to a Godly recovery. Standers - remain pure, obedient and holy unto the Lord and He will delight in doing His part in bringing your prodigal home!"  (Texas)

“I just want to say thank You Jesus! I was not expecting to hear from my husband on my birthday. But he texted my daughter and told her to go to the Western Union and pick up the money he sent for my birthday. My husband told my daughter he loved all of us. God is good!”  (Georgia) (posted 1/27/2015)
To God be The Glory. My husband and I were remarried on Wednesday, June 19. We were divorced in 1998. The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart in 2000 that my husband and I would be remarried. I said to myself how can this be since he does not know the Lord, but I carried that promise in my heart. My husband then became a believer. We were then in each other’s lives, however I did not officially start standing until November 2003 when I received deep conviction in the middle of the night from The Holy Spirit as to my mistakes in not treating my husband properly from my heart. In the summer of 2004, I was led to Rejoice Marriage Ministries where I first heard the word “standing” and understood what I was already doing. He came home in February 2011, after two other relationships, and he came home very broken. Here we are, husband and wife, again after 13 years. My husband had no intentions of ever coming home, but God!  (Florida) (posted 7/4/2013)
“Praise the Lord. He is such an awesome and merciful God. My suddenly is here. My husband and I have reunited. And our Lord has blessed us in so many ways. Miraculous. Please keep standing for your marriage and don’t ever give up. Please continue to pray for my marriage and I will continue to pray for all of you. God Bless all of you.”  (Arizona) (posted 2/9/2015)
“To God be the glory! I have been standing since my husband left earlier this year. I contacted him to see if we could discuss our marriage and he said that he was moving forward with divorce. I was devastated again. BUT GOD! I looked at his Facebook page and it showed that he changed his relationship status to married and my photo and name is the first thing you see on his page. He changed it just days ago. That may not be a big deal to most people, but it is a huge deal for me as a stander. He has not talked to me in many months and to see that he recently changed his status makes me stand even more for God to save his soul. Please keep standing and believing God to allow the Holy Spirit to soften your prodigal’s heart toward God then back you. To God be the glory!” (Texas) (posted 10/13/2014)
“I want to praise and thank You Lord for confirming your promise of restoration of my husband and our covenant with You! God confirmed to me by showing me a sign that said ‘restoration’ and then below it was my husband's name! Then I asked God if that was Him talking to me and He showed me an abbreviated license plate that said ‘right way’ and had our wedding anniversary on it! Thank You God!”  (California) (posted 6/15/2012)
"We serve an awesome God! I hadn't heard from my husband in a few months and the last time I did, he was talking about divorce. This past week God told me that my prayers are being answered and that a breakthrough was about to happen. The next day my husband brought my new car insurance card to my door, with a note telling me he paid my electric bill! Our Lord is so faithful and I will never give up on my beloved husband! I know he will be home soon! Thank you, Jesus!" (Ohio) (posted 1/10/2011)

“My husband has been home for a little while and I praise God daily that he is home. He had to work on Father's Day, but the children and I were up at 5 a.m. preparing a special breakfast for him. We were also able to give him a special card. Once he was home from work we spent time together watching movies. Although, there is much healing still to be done I can see how God is at work in all of our lives. I just want to give God all the glory for what He has done in our lives, and continues to do today. I know that God will complete what He has started. This ‘stand’ is a lifelong journey not a destination. I will continue to stand on the Word of God, covered in the blood of Jesus, led by the Holy Spirit. I call each and every one of my brothers and sisters that read this blessed! Trust in the Lord and lean not to your own understanding.”  (Tennessee)

"My husband emailed me some time after he moved out telling me he wanted to finalize the divorce. I prayed and waited several days. I called him and very briefly said that I thought our time apart had been good but that I didn't want to make any final decisions and that my heart was not into a divorce. He said that was fine." (North Carolina) (posted 8/6/2010)
"My prodigal wife brought the other man to an event of our daughters. This hurt me very badly. I went home crying out to God. A lifetime friend showed up and saw the immense pain I was going through." (Tennessee) (posted 5/7/2010)
“I want to give glory and praise to our Abba Father for the blessings He sends. Even though I am still unemployed and my son and I are in the roughest of times, God has provided food and shelter. I was in the hospital last week and had emergency surgery. God will provide the way to pay for this. I must thank God for His love. There are times I cry to God asking where He is and He puts His arms around me. Please pray for my son; he is hurting and rebelling and I ask God to show me the way and how to be the mother God wants me to be. We must be believe and trust in our God and His promises.”  (Florida) (posted 12/5/2014)
"My wife came to church last Wednesday for the first time in a while. After church she and I talked. The next day we met and spent hours together. We are talking, seeing each other and starting over as friends to see where the Lord takes us. Praise God." (Arizona) (posted 6/18/2010)
"Each day the Lord gives me a sign my prodigal husband will be home soon. Yesterday my prodigal put his head on my shoulder and kept repeating how much he missed me. I know the Lord is working in his heart more and more each day." (Kentucky) (posted 5/22/2009)
"My husband and I separated several years ago. I didn't know what to do. That's when God led me to your website. I was very encouraged We are back together living in our home for several months. My husband is a preacher and God has restored our ministry and our marriage. God is great. Never give up. If God said it He will do it." (Canada) (posted 1/10/2011)
“I just want to give thanks and praise to our Heavenly Father. I have been studying for the past two months to be able to pass the Algebra test to gain entry into college to finish my degree. Having been out of school for 30 plus years, it was going quite slowly. Today I received an email from the college telling me I don’t have to take the entrance exam as they changed their policy for people who already have their AA. Thank You Jesus! I am now praying for some financial aid as money is tight for my daughter and me. There have been many times I felt like everything has been a struggle. Thank You God for seeing my struggle and giving me this gift.”  (Washington)

"In a recent email my husband was describing activities he saw us doing together in the future. For the first time in many months he wrote that he loved me. God is showing me in many ways that He is working on my husband and I have faith that our marriage will be restored." (Wisconsin) (posted 7/24/2009)
“Surely our God is bigger than our world and He has our ‘world’ in the palm of His Mighty Hand. My wife asked me to leave the home so she can see if she really wanted to be with me, since a warning came forward at a church for me to get delivered from my shameful, embarrassing bondage to porn. It has caused my wife’s heart to be hardened throughout the years. We were also in ministry, unfortunately pretending like everything was alright. Leaving everything to my wife and little children, all I had was God to hold on to in the midst of the heart pain. I held on to the Lord for life. This caused me to open up to accountability and fellowship which brought deliverance from a 15-year pit. I believe that God is going to turn my marriage around in Jesus’ Name. 2015 – the year of rest and turning around.”  (Maryland) (posted 3/30/2015)
"My divorce was finalized and I cried out to Lord asking when would I see my wife again. That Sunday I sat down at church and there she was in front. The pastor brought us together a few times and she committed to counseling for herself. I am going to counseling myself. I am hoping and praying we will start counseling together very soon. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!" (Florida) (posted 1/10/2011)
“I want to praise the Lord even though my marriage has not been restored. In this time of year, when it is hardest to stand, I praise Him. This morning I asked God to open my eyes to see all His blessings for me. God is so good! He started out by opening up a beautiful relationship between me and my niece. I got several other signs driving to work and He healed me from a bad cold. Can you say God is good?! In my spirit I heard God telling me that if I don't praise Him the rocks will cry out. This lead me to Luke 19:37-40! I'm praising You Lord because I don't want the rocks to cry out. Praise the Lord!”  (Florida)  (posted 12/17/2012)
“I found out my spouse married the OW a few months after our divorce was final. I was distraught and felt so lost but I've come to realize that I wouldn't have handled it well had I known earlier. Today I am closer to the Lord and He revealed to me that I was called to stand exactly when he got married. My circumstances haven't changed since, I just didn't know it. I stand on Luke 16:18 and know that I am his wife. Saturday was our anniversary and also our son's graduation dinner. Our families were together again celebrating. After the dinner he helped me load my car and I reminded him it was our anniversary. He kissed and hugged me and said I love you. Standers, don't ever give up, God will restore.”  (Texas)  (posted 7/4/2013)
"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 (posted 12/12/2008)
“The Lord told me to set up a meeting with my pastors, bringing them hope for hurting and dead marriages. So I did that. I've been praying the Lord keep our conversation in the forefront of their minds. At our church meeting they announced a member of the church met with them, offered services, and that they are praying about how to utilize this church member! That was me! I couldn't believe it. Then the Lord told me to tell my brother about my standing and the details of my separation which I had not ever told him in five years. I did. To my surprise he took the news so well and even said, ‘Your husband will return back to God.’ Had I shared this news with him one day before the Lord told me to, or even shared the message with the Pastors one day before the Lord's timing it would have been disastrous. God's timing is perfect. I saw this with these two appointments. Wait on the Lord for your restoration! He wants to do much more than just reunite your spouse. He's making disciples of us! PTL!”  (Arizona) (posted 1/27/2014)
