“Thank you Rejoice Ministries for encouraging us to stand. Since I subscribed to this site, my decision to stand is yielding positive results. I receive daily confirmation from God that I made the best decision for my marriage. I want to praise and thank God for the Christmas gift I asked for. A few days after Christmas I texted my husband to make arrangements for our kids and he surprised me by wishing me a belated Christmas message and a blessed new year. He has never acknowledged any important days since the separation. I know the devil is saying this means nothing, but I know that this is God's assurance that He is still working on our marriage and the pending divorce is canceled forever in the mighty name of Jesus and the restoration is imminent. Glory be to God.”  (South Africa)  (posted 4/23/2012)
“Today's Charlyne Cares from Bob's perspective was written a few years ago. When it was written, I was one of those people who was discouraged but Bob's writings pointed me back to Jesus. Standers, believe in our Lord Jesus and our households will be saved. I have continued to just look to Jesus as Bob suggested and, though my spouse is not physically living with me, I know he is back in our marriage in his heart. I know without a doubt that God will complete what He has started. Our God is faithful! Standers, do not give up on your spouse or on our God, He will accomplish what He set out to do, Just keep looking to Jesus in this difficult time of the year and He will get you through.”  (Pennsylvania)  (posted 12/7/2012)

"For the first time in years, my prodigal is taking our girls to church on Easter. He asked if they could stay until Sunday and to pack their dresses. My little ones are excited and I am excited to witness the manifestation of answered prayers in this way." (Florida)

(posted 3/8/2012)
“I was getting weary, so I prayed for something to give me hope. A man gave a message at church today from God. I know it was for me. He said God is restoring and rebuilding, and He is doing a new thing; that I need to trust in Him and walk in His spirit and God will restore. These are the things I was asking God for all week! God hears our prayers, we just have to trust Him. Thank You Lord for your faithfulness!”  (Oregon) (posted 1/13/2014)
“I have surrendered my life, my spouse and my marriage to the Lord. Only He can heal and restore; I already know what I can do. I have been consistently praying and seeking God. Lately I prayed that my husband would come home immediately, if it's time. Just a few days ago my husband texted that he lost his job and was on his way home. He is on his way! I KNOW that complete restoration is on the way. All praise and glory to the Lord!”  (Oregon)  (posted 10/29/2011)
"My husband takes his case before a judge in a few days. Despite the movement toward finalization, he asked me to join he and the kids for a movie last night. The Father gave us a glorious evening as a family. God will receive glory from all this." (Texas) (posted 8/8/2008)
"My husband who does not live at home right now, brought a Christmas tree over while I was at work. I already had our old tree up, so he took the other one back. He was thinking of our family. I needed this at an uncertain time." (Iowa) (posted 1/8/2009)
"When I was served with divorce papers, God told me to trust Him. Soon after my kids and I were faced with eviction and repossession of our vehicle. God stepped in and made a way for us to retain the residence and vehicle. I know God is not only moving my mountain, He's crumbling it into the sea to never return. God has shown me that my husband still loves me, and God's Word has confirmed restoration through scripture, Ezekiel 11:19-20 and again in Ezekiel 37:21-23. Praise God for what He's doing. I trust God. To God be the glory. In Jesus name Amen."  (Georgia) (posted 5/12/2011)
"God used a billboard to draw me to a marriage reconciliation ministry at a church near my home in Fort Worth, Texas. I know now that it was not by accident that I was sitting on the Interstate, stuck in traffic in January of 2006 in clear view of that billboard. This is a powerful tool. Please continue to use the money that God provides for His glory and the Billboard Project." (Texas)  A PS from Pompano- This response came from one of the partners in our Billboard Project. Their monthly support allows us to maintain seven pro-marriage billboards in four states. Read more from- http://rejoiceministries.org/billboard (posted 11/6/2009)
Save us,  O Lord our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.  Psalm 106:47  (posted 6/25/2012)
“PTL! I've been standing for some years and just celebrated my 16th wedding anniversary. This is a miracle as my husband filed for divorce and I was told it would be completed by July. Every day I pray Palms 91 that no plague will come near my dwelling and God has been faithful. Amen! I bought my beloved a card and gift but felt discouraged as I got no response and in my heart I was hoping for an anniversary miracle. I cried out to God to give me a sign as I had been fasting the day of the anniversary and ended my fast with communion at home. Within less than 24 hours I received a beautiful card from RMM and my house group was lead to pray for me. Wow, God is awesome! My husband is not saved yet but by faith I know he will be. Standers, I'm praying for all non-saved spouses, that they will come to Christ in JESUS NAME! For those who are weary, this is for you be encouraged. Read Isaiah 40:31. God Bless you Standers and RMM.” (United Kingdom) (posted 11/11/2013)
“Today is New Year’s Eve and also our anniversary. Right at midnight, while I was still praying, my husband sent me this text: Happy New Year baby! I was so happy to know that he was thinking about me and to be the first one he wished a Happy New Year. Even though he did not acknowledge our anniversary I know that God is working in my husband’s heart. This is a sign that God wants me to keep standing for my marriage restoration. To God be the glory!”  (Washington) (posted 1/12/2015)

"Praise the Lord my husband has been home for several months after months of separation. My husband moved away from me and our children. The Lord used this time to work in the both of us. Three days before my husband came back the Lord gave me Joshua 1:11: 'Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.'  My husband called me and asked me to book him a ticket to come home. He is now a man of God." (Canada)

“Praise the Lord, my husband just came home. I am rejoicing as I hang his clothes back in his side of the closet.” (Washington) (posted 6/17/2005)
"After 20 months of separation and my husband filing for a divorce, he came home last weekend. During most of the time that we were separated he told me that he would never come home; however I continued to pray and thank God that my husband was home and healed." (Texas) (posted 11/20/2004)
"My husband called me and told me that his girlfriend is not moving in with him and that he is concentrating on himself right now. I thanked God." (Florida) (posted 8/30/2008)
I’ve been a stander for years with nothing visible in the physical realm. Recently someone I dated before I met my husband began texting and calling me. His wife of 30 years had passed away and he was anxious to begin a relationship with me again. I shared my testimony of standing but he did not agree and continued to text me. This man lives in another state and a few days ago he texted to inform me he will be traveling and had plans to come see me and take me out to dinner. For days I did not reply. Granted, when someone has been standing as long as I have it was a little tempting to have someone interested, but God convicted my heart and reminded me that it would not be harmless as Satan would have me think. The Holy Spirit prompted me to text him and firmly declined the invitation and again reaffirm my stand to him. I knew I must be obedient and so I was. I felt relief as soon as I hit send.”  (Georgia)

The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.  Genesis 2:23-24 (posted 5/12/2011)
“I was hard-hearted and pushed my spouse out and filed for divorce. God dealt with me and made a way for the divorce to be dismissed two months later. After over a year of my spouse telling me he was not coming home ever, he called on a Sunday morning and asked if I was going to church and if the gate was unlocked. He said he was going to start bringing his things home. Suddenly, just like you say. Praise God, He is working and I have zipped it. God Bless RMM.”  (Washington)  (posted 10/4/2011)

“After many months of no communication, I was able to speak to my spouse today at a court hearing. For the whole week leading up to today I couldn't figure out what to say, but thank God that He supplied me with the words to say, ‘I love you, I will pray for you and us and I will still be waiting for you when I am an old man.’ She replied, ‘That's good to know.’ Thank God that when He is in it, it's not over.”  (Texas)  (posted 12/7/2012)
"Praise God, my spouse received the Lord as his Savior suddenly last week. I know God will restore our marriage and one day bring him home to me. Soon we will be sitting together and worshiping in our church." (Alabama) (posted 9/26/2008)
"My prodigal has not contacted me for several months. Two days before Christmas, out of the blue he sent an email that blessed me. I read between the lines and could sense the Holy Spirit at work in his heart. I thank God for the small things that can be seen only with the spiritual eye." (Arkansas) (posted 12/29/2009)
“I want to thank God for opening my spiritual eyes. My husband and I have been separated for a few years and I will admit I gave up because he looks happy and has someone else. When I felt led to rededicate myself to God because I was broken-hearted, He showed me another way. I had no idea how to stand but thank God I found this site and others. Thank You God for I want Your will to be done. I will continue to trust in the Lord for I know divorce is not the answer. I forgave my husband and love him very much. I want our marriage to glorify God in the highest! What a sweet testimony we will have when we get back together!”  (Tennessee) (posted 8/4/2014)

"Shortly after I left my husband and arrived in my sublet to start my new life, I heard God telling me that I would not divorce my husband but stand in the gap and pray for his salvation and that He would heal and restore our marriage. God led me to Rejoice Marriage Ministries who became our marriage counselor with hundreds of miles between us. God first began a great work in me, healing me and showing me the error of my ways. Now, praise God, I am back home after nearly a year and God is working on my husband as I continue to stand forever. Praise God." (North Carolina)

“Thank You Jesus! Yesterday I was able to talk to my wife on the phone for several minutes. This was the first time she has engaged in really conversing other than about bills. She told me she loves me and desires to have a strong friendship again. Thank you for encouraging us standers to pray our spouses names into scriptures! Ezekiel 36:25-26.”  (Virginia) (posted 3/10/2014)
“PTL! God is working to move my mountain and restore my marriage. Last month the divorce was final and my marriage was over by man's view. God has a different view. I almost gave up and have made a lot of mistakes in these last six months of standing. I prayed for a sign and my wife gave me a hug. Every time I get down God lifts me up. My wife has asked me to move back into our home to help with our children. She is still living by the world’s standards, but I know God is in control. Thank you for your prayers. Standers don't give up ever. Thank You Jesus, my someday is near. Ephesians 3:20 has been my strength and assurance. God bless.”  (Texas) (posted 8/3/2013)
"Praise the Lord, my husband returned just as suddenly as he left me. I had just about given up on standing when God sent me the message that I was closer than I thought. Two days after receiving that message I got the phone call I had been waiting for. Our God is the one of suddenly. He is so good. Charlyne’s testimony is what helped me see that my situation was not hopeless." (Texas) (posted 9/5/2008)
All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant. Psalm 25:10 (posted 11/5/2011)
"God is so good. After years of no communication, my mother-in- law is now so kind to me. Now she lives minutes from me. My children and I were blessed to move back into our family’s home. I give God the glory for working out such a small mortgage payment. When my mother-in-law visited us and saw we didn't have a refrigerator, she offered us her old one for free. She is also the reason my children are now speaking to their dad after a long period of no communication. Praise God." (Alabama) (posted 7/30/2010)
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55:8-9  (posted 1/24/2012)
“My husband left our home at my insistence. I really believed the right thing to do was to divorce him, though he didn’t want the divorce. The divorce went through, though at the end I didn’t even want it! I had no peace about our family being fractured. My husband was working at the other end of the state and I could see that his relationship with our youngest son was becoming lost. I reached out to my husband with honesty and, for the first time in a long time, he also responded in honesty. In a little over a week he will be moving back home and starting a new job here. Praise the Lord!”  (Florida) (posted 8/4/2014)
“I just finished reading this Saturday's testimonies. I feel such joy and connection with Jesus. Every day I look forward to reading RMM devotionals as I know they will lift up my spirit and renew my hope. There has been no one in my life who can relate to my standing for my marriage or understand what it feels like or why I'm standing. To hear these testimonies, to see how many other people do understand what I'm feeling and why we need to stand, is just amazing! My situation is the worst it's been right now, and yet I feel closer to God than ever. He is giving me an even better understanding of why all of this is happening. He is also filling me with a peace that is beyond belief considering my circumstances and a faith that is reassuring me that my marriage will be healed and it's just around the corner! I am learning more and more to surrender all of it to Jesus, PTL!”  (New York) (posted 9/16/2013)
“I want to thank my Father for all he has done and will do in restoring my marriage. Every time the enemy attacks my God has been there fighting for me. I love Him so much for His unconditional love and deliverance. He has really humbled me. Keep standing my fellow standers. Remember to live by faith not by sight. Praise the Lord daily; He is our light in the dark. Thank You, Father.”  (Florida) (posted 7/15/2013)
“Well I knew in my heart I would be writing this one day, but in my head I don't think I truly believed it. My wife and I separated. I wanted to stay together, but she pursued a divorce. Very close to the final hearing to end our marriage she began to soften, to change, to open her eyes. We began our restoration about this time last year. Although there have been some bumps along the way, we seem to get over them easier than before with God's help. I am so glad I did not quit on my wife! Keep praying for your spouse and trusting in God's Word!” (Ohio) (posted 4/28/2014)

"My beloved husband has asked me to move in with him in his new house. He said he has been happy with me these last few months since we started seeing each other. Praise The Lord." (Florida)

(posted 8/31/2012)
"Several months ago I went to the other woman’s house and verbally assaulted my husband. Today I went to her work and apologized for my actions. I know it was a conviction from God. I don't know what He will do with it, but I obeyed and it felt right." (Alaska) (posted 9/3/2010)
"God is good. I was feeling depressed and lonely and I prayed those feelings away. I knew something big was going to happen and praised God in anticipation. The next day my husband showed up with his belongings, asking to come home. I am so grateful and aware that I am now standing firmer than ever because the enemy will attack more now than ever." (Texas) (posted 10/30/2009)
“Praise His Holy and Mighty Name! I just received an email from my ex-husband who lives 1000 miles away from me that he was currently on the train coming home to see his family and asked if I would join him for coffee or dinner. I am so excited! My heart will not stop pounding and it's all thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I have not seen my husband in exactly a year and during that time, God has done a tremendous transformation in me and I pray my husband sees it. I am in great awe that my Heavenly Father, in spite of my many sins and transgressions, has forgiven, forgotten, and is so willing to bless me far more than I deserve. Standers, pray every chance you get. The Lord woke me up and got me on my knees in the middle of the night to pray. Prayers cause miracles. Do not give up, no matter what. Fast when given the opportunity and absorb yourself into His Word, daily. When life gives you more than you can stand - kneel!”  (Missouri)   (posted 9/26/2013)
“Praise God! My suddenly hasn’t come yet, but after years of standing my ‘ex- husband’ is moving in with his parents, near my house, because the OW left him. He is still fighting conviction, but God is hedging him in. Our young children are praying for him, too, which I hope strengthens them. The enemy meant it for evil, as with Joseph, when his brothers sold him, but God can still use this time for blessing in the latter end. I look to God with hope and expectancy.”  (Arkansas) (posted 8/4/2014)

"Everything looked hopeless. Court proceedings were underway and complex. I hadn’t spoken to my wife for months. The day before we were again due in court, my wife came to my office and handed me a court notice of discontinuance. I was speechless. We spent Saturday at a Christian bookshop buying resources to rebuild our marriage. God is absolutely amazing." (Australia)

"While I was praying for my husband, a song came into my head. I didn't remember all the words and I just started singing. I figured God wanted me to praise him in the midst of trouble. As the song unfolded, I found myself singing the words that God was giving me; 'Nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing, nothing is too difficult for thee.' I praise Him for all that He is doing and I trust Him." (Colorado) (A PS from Pompano: These are the moments that happen when we are alone with God. He is speaking and we are listening. Please note she was not in a chat room, nor did she email her online prayer friends for the words when this happened. If you are not doing so, please make time for you to meet in private with our Lord God.) (posted 7/25/2008)
“PTL. Since I'm praying for my spouse daily I notice major changes. He tells me he loves me and thanks me for a nice evening at home. Last night I was crying for my Lord and asked Him what to do. The Lord told me I was chosen to heal my husband, and that I had to stand strong. I started doubting again and I asked the Lord for a sign. I started listening to Stop Divorce Radioand immediately a teaching from Charlyne came on about how we are chosen by the Lord to heal our husbands and our family. This must have been a message from our Lord. Please keep on praying for all the prodigals. One day they will come home.”  (Netherlands)   (posted 2/11/2014)
“My husband and I have been divorced for years. I didn't see or hear from him for many years and he was in a non-covenant marriage. He moved back to my area and we've been seeing each other as friends for a few years. He came to see me and he told me that he still loves me. And just to make sure that I heard him and knew he asked me, ‘You know that don't you?’ I told him that I knew and that I love him too. God is working on him and I know He will continue to grow this love between us. Praising and thanking Him that His Words and ways never fail!”  (Indiana)  (posted 3/18/2013)
"My husband and I got a divorce. He has since remarried. He has come to see me and calls often, telling me why he did what he did. I told him that I still loved him and am praying for him to come back. I can't wait to see how God is going to make us one again." (Pennsylvania) (posted 10/11/2008)
“My husband is on his way home after many years of separation and said to me the other day that he cannot wait to hold me in his arms again. We are only waiting on Gods provision for him to be able to get back to me which I know will come in Gods perfect timing and way. Praise God! Nothing is impossible for Him.”  (Australia) (posted 7/31/2014)

"I have been praying and fasting for my wife. She called today to ask if she could meet me and our children at church on Easter Sunday. I did not expect this and I'm so happy with this sign from the Lord." (Illinois)

(posted 3/8/2012)
"God just keeps on confirming through the same scriptures given to me and through prayer that He is going to restore. We continue to see more people praying for families, prodigals and marriages in our local church. We stand in awe of God and wait expectantly." (United Kingdom) (posted 12/4/2009)
“I have not had any contact with my prodigal in many months. I cried out to the Lord and asked Him to break down the walls. I needed help with my car and asked the Lord to let me know who could help me. As I was driving past the church where my prodigal is organist, I saw him pulling into the parking lot. It was a blessing to see him. Then the Lord said to me, ‘He can help you.’ I quickly turned the car around and was able to catch him in time. He did help me and I was able to give him a hug and tell him I loved him. It may have been a small Christmas miracle but definitely a God appointment. Only God knows what His purpose was in our meeting. The Lord has told me to be still and let Him fight the battle. I'm praying for Christmas miracles for thousands of you standers!”  (Minnesota)   (posted 12/29/2013)
“The Lord speaks to me through trucks and license plates, bumper stickers and street signs. I've seen Covenant Transport trucks, Restoration trucks, Rainbow trucks and mud flaps. Lately I've been praying swiftly and have seen a Swift truck, a Speedy Delivery van, and a Pronto car. Today I wasn't looking, I was running a quick errand. I saw the best truck ever – ‘Project Welcome Home,’ Thank You God!”  (Illinois) (posted 9/10/2012)
