“Today I get baptized to the Lord. I so believe that He brought this storm to me to bring me to Him. I so believe that He is bringing me to Him first and then He will bring my husband to Him. The signs He gives me to let me know that He is working are very encouraging to me. I was kneeling down to pray and as I was turning to kneel, there was a vision of my husband kneeling beside me by our bed praying, already waiting for me. I think that was God telling me what is to come and to be ready, suddenly. I am so thankful to this ministry for giving me the words of encouragement to go on . Thank you.” (Missouri)  (posted 10/29/2011)
"My prodigal told me that he wants to work on our marriage. Many times I have doubted that anything was happening on his side. Last night my husband told me that he has been wanting to come home for months. Thank You, Lord God for keeping me faithful to You and to my prodigal." (Colorado) (posted 2/13/2009)
“I want to praise God for an answered prayer. My prodigal called me unexpectedly this week but was not very nice. My spirit was so crushed that I called my prayer partners for prayer. Then within four hours. He texted me his apologies! Glory to God!”  (Texas) (posted 9/3/2013)
“I am so grateful to God for the way He answers prayers. We are a young (both Christian) couple, and after reading testimonies and devotionals, I began praying to bring my husband home to both the Lord and to me for the holidays. In the middle of the night my husband called asking if he could sleep in my apartment for a few hours. His parents surprised him on his way up to his brother’s house for Thanksgiving, so he didn’t have a good place to sleep. When he left he gave me a kiss and said that he would stop by again. On Thanksgiving, I emailed him Happy Thanksgiving and he responded, again saying he would stop by. I am in awe and quietly waiting for my suddenly.”  (Ohio) (posted 12/11/2014)
“PTL! God blessed me with a holiday dinner with my wife and my mom. It has been some months since we separated. We have not had that much contact lately, but I had invited her to eat with us a couple of weeks before. She was non-committal about whether or not she would go. Then my mother invited her too, and she contacted her back and said she would like to go with us. I have been praying for God's resurrection in our marriage and this was a big miracle just for us to have a dinner. She even hugged both my mom and me. God is faithful to His Word It will not return back to Him empty. Isaiah 55:11. I believe that the resurrection of our marriage will be complete, because‘Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.’ Mark 10:9  Amen. To God be all the glory and praise. He is always faithful, loving, gracious, and so many other good things.”  (Texas) (posted 4/28/2014)
"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 he 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)

“Thank you for continually pointing me in the right direction. My husband has been gone for some time and has filed for divorce. God told me He was not finished with us, not to give up. This has been the most difficult, dark season of my life, but God. He has carried me through. Your devotion on consistency spoke to me today. My husband dropped our son off the other night and told me he thinks of me often. He hugged me and kissed me like he hasn't done since before he filed. The pendulum Bob writes of is swinging back. Thank you for your prayers and helping me keep my focus on Christ, not circumstances.”  (Florida)  (posted 7/30/2012)
"I woke up Sunday morning and sat down in the family room to have my coffee. I turned on the TV and was disappointed to see that I had missed a show I wanted to watch. I turned the channel and found a minister who was just beginning his message on Luke 15 and the Prodigal Son. There is no way the timing of me seeing that message was an accident or coincidence! God reaffirmed to me His commitment to bringing my husband back to Him, and He strengthened me to keep praying and waiting for my spouse." (Washington) (posted 5/21/2010)
“Praise God! Many are telling me if it's over, let it go. God has not written ‘Let it go’ on my heart, ‘Stand’ is written on my heart. But they were causing me to question today. At work I shared my situation with a prophetic Christian woman, but not that others were telling me to move on. She said, ‘Remain faithful, do not change, I don't know what you are doing but God wants me to tell you to keep doing it.’ A sign when I needed it, a voice in the wilderness. Our God is awesome.”  (California)  (posted 4/1/2012)
“Praise the Lord. I found this website and that same day I took some prayers home and started standing. And the Lord did it! When I got home yesterday, my husband’s car was parked outside the yard and he was in our house watching TV with the kids. He also brought us some harvest from my in-law's fields. We spent two or so hours chatting and he asked us to have dinner with him tonight. Standers, keep on standing. I am still standing not only for my marriage but for all of us."  (Botswana) (posted 5/9/2014)
“God is amazing! Facing a final divorce situation in the next 30 days, God just keeps the promises coming. It has been years of standing and God daily talks to me. Almost every time I drive anywhere there is at least one Covenant Transport truck and a Swift truck follows. Another truck I see all the time are PTL trucks. God is never changing His messages, whether it's a devotional or Bible verse. He is working on the other side of the mountain.” (Indiana) (posted 1/16/2015)
“My husband and I are starting life anew. I was in such shock on Christmas Eve when my husband wanted to stay at our house after opening gifts with our children and actually wanted me by his side. We talked for hours. He wanted to stay home. There is much healing that will need to take place, but the joy far outweighs the sorrow. I kept clinging to the message that God is in control.” (Ohio) (posted 1/28/2005)
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 9/4/2011)
“I wanted to shout God's Glory to all. My husband usually communicates directly to our kids but I had the chance to share our daughters singing audition with him yesterday. I called him to tell him what happened and he invited me and our daughter to lunch with him and his work partner. This is the first time I've been around him without the woman he lives with in several months. It seems small but it's huge considering our circumstances of never having communication with each other. All Glory to God!”  (Texas)  (posted 8/27/2011)
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.”  Luke 15:20  (posted 6/23/2012)
“Reading the testimonies never fails to make me smile and lift my spirits up. Today, I was able to share with church friends that I envision my marriage as an example of God's power when He completely restores it and that I have a desire to be a husband-wife ministry team in the future. I’m excitedly waiting! Thank you RMM for the endless support, prayers and hope!”  (Philippines)  (posted 8/23/2011)
"Thank You Jesus for restoring my family. This has been the most difficult thing to go through, but my husband came home a few days ago. Everything that I went through was preparing me for what is to come." (North Carolina) (posted 11/27/2009)
“I've been praying, fasting and meditating on God's Word and for awhile we heard or saw nothing, I knew our Lord was working mightily in our marriage. Lately my husband has been very loving towards both our son and me. We have gotten very close and I'm praying that before the year is up, we get our suddenly. Thank You for the hope you give us standers and the guidance you show us in hearing and accepting God's Word and waiting on His perfect timing. All the praise and glory to our God for showing that He can and will restore dead and hurting marriages.”  (Texas)  (posted 10/23/2011)
“My husband, as a Christmas gift, gave me a beautiful diamond ring that represented past, present, and future. Although, the card read that the ring did not signify the return of a prodigal husband, but symbolized the stand of a wife who is trusting faithfully on the promises of GOD for marriage restoration. I see the ring as a concrete promise of what GOD has guaranteed to me through His Word, which is the restoration of my marriage. GOD’s promises do not return void!”  (California)  (posted 1/29/2012)
“I’ve been standing for my marriage for some months. My anger and rage were what caused most of the problems in our marriage. It wasn't until he left and filed for divorced, that I hit rock bottom. Devastated, I had nowhere to turn but God. By some miracle, I found this website. I found encouragement and hope. I was able to take a cold hard look at myself, and didn't like what I saw. I asked and begged our Lord to help me work on myself and lead me down the right path. I also prayed fervently for my prodigal, so that his heart would soften. The power of prayer is AMAZING. Not only am I a different person, but my prodigal keeps commenting on the changes. I keep remembering how sure he was that our differences were irreconcilable. I know he will be home soon. And by the way,zip your lips is great advice!”  (Michigan)  (posted 12/3/2011)
PTL, for His love endures forever. The Lord brought me to RMM a year after my beloved moved out and entered into a non-covenant marriage. I was broken and started standing, though at that time I didn't know what standing meant. There was a time during my stand that I was ready to give up but I was able to believe that God was really moving the mountain of circumstances before me. My beloved phoned at the beginning of the week after I attended his father's funeral with our daughters. He said he missed me and the girls and wished for us to be a family again. PTL, he is coming to visit us tomorrow.”  (South Africa)   (posted 10/7/2013)
“I watched a program that showed a man who fasted for 40 days. On the last day of his fast, there was a mini earthquake. I decided to fast for 40 days. During my fast I prayed to God about my stand. The last day of my fast I had my own mini earthquake. Out of the blue my husband called and asked me what was I doing. He then asked to come over. We talked and watched a movie. Thank You God for showing me that You are still working on the other side of the mountain!”  (Kentucky)   (posted 1/13/2014)
I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.  Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.  Psalm 17:6-7  (posted 6/24/2011)
“The Lord provided another year to homeschool our daughter, attend a closer school for my higher learning which is closer to my prodigal, a financial breakthrough on three separate occasions this month, and a sister in Christ encouraged me tonight. I wanted to give up my stand today but our Lord sent that sister to specifically say that ‘I am a strong woman.’ She said most people would have given up by now. Hallelujah!”  (Florida) (posted 9/10/2012)
“Praise God. My wife left me shortly after I was saved and she was my world. She visited this past weekend to get some things and although a sad goodbye again, we have talked and joked many times this week on the phone. The Lord told me to be kind to her and allow Him to work in her now. All the glory to Him! PTL and God Bless RMM!” (Indiana)  (posted 1/24/2012)
"God is good and answers prayers. My once prodigal, now living at home, told me to move out and that he didn't love me. He is now smiling and joking as if he is happy. I will not let my guard down again. I relaxed on praying for my family once, but I will never do that again." (Florida) (posted 11/14/2008)
“My husband unexpectedly left and filed for divorce. We have had three preliminary court dates that have all been continued for one reason or another. I have had nothing to do with requesting the continuances (only praying for them), they were all driven by issues that could only have been orchestrated by God. Last week my husband called me at 2:30 A.M. in the morning to tell me he doesn't think he wants this divorce and asked me to fly to see him that day. We spent the week together. Yesterday he told me that HE had asked his attorney to file the fourth continuance for our court date that should have been this coming Monday. He wants us to have time to see if we can start to put things back together. We are cautiously taking things slowly especially since he now lives in another state. Thank you to everyone who prays for court datesto be canceled!”  (Indiana)  (posted 12/7/2012)
“I just want to praise God. Friday, I was supposed to have a meeting with my lawyer and it did not happen. This is now three times that this has happened. Also, my court date which was supposed to be the following Wednesday, was not going to happen. So Praise to God I am not going to be divorced before Christmas. I had a pretty rough weekend with my husband and I believe it was the devil trying to prevent me from praising God, but I am going to praise God anyway! Keep standing even through the good times and bad!”  (Missouri) (posted 12/22/2014)
“RMM has been a life source of God's Word for me since I began my stand. Since I began to read and act upon each devotional and listen to the daily messages, my life has been made new. I am truly a new creation in Christ Jesus. Because I have learned to love like God has asked me to love, my husband is not only home but repented and moving forward with his relationship with Christ. Love does cover a multitude of sin and zipping my lips has been the greatest change in me and I love it!”  (Texas) (posted 2/17/2014)

"After divorce and remarriage on my husband’s part, and me giving up my faith, God showed me He had other plans and I was to stand. My husband is now divorcing the non-covenant and we have been spending time together. Praise God that He showed me my prayers were working even though I could not see or did not know anything was happening. God is faiithful."  (Oklahoma)

“My prodigal is home from Afghanistan (we are divorced). His father passed away two days before he arrived home for vacation. At the funeral my mother-in-law approached me and wrapped her arms around me and said she loved me and I would always be family. My prodigal was standing next to us and heard her. She introduced me as her daughter-in-law and told me I was to come to the family dinner at her church after the service. My prodigal's sister told me the same. I went to the dinner and my prodigal sat across from me and I would catch him watching me. I had been stressing about being at the funeral and not being with MY family. They ALL welcomed me with love. God answered in a mighty way. My father-in-law was a godly man and loved the Word. He told me when my prodigal left me ‘He loves you and WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER WEDDING!’ I continue to hold onto his prophetic words.”  (Texas)  (posted 6/15/2012)
“I have been standing for my marriage for a few months. I have had days when I thought of giving up but get lots of encouragement from your messages and testimonies. I know my God is faithful and is restoring my marriage. I received a text message from my husband wishing me a happy birthday, after no communication from him from the day of breaking the news. My husband joined us for my birthday celebration meal out. We had a great time as a family. I give glory and honor to God who is able.”  (United Kingdom)   (posted 10/21/2013)

 

"After years of standing, the Lord has won this battle for me. My wife said that she thought I might like to take her out for a meal as she thought I might have a question to ask her. She wanted me to propose. We went ring shopping the next morning, found the perfect ring for her, and went out for a meal. I got down on one knee and proposed and she said yes. Praise the Lord. A wedding invitation will be in the post! All glory to God." (United Kingdom)

“My husband offered to housesit for me while the children and I went to see my parents. To make a long story short, my husband decided he was coming home and staying home and moved his things back. Praise God. He took care of everything, even when my husband kept insisting he would not be coming back, He brought him home, suddenly, unexpectedly. My husband’s response to me and others was, ‘Why would I want sausages when I can have steak at home?’ Amen.” (Australia) (posted 11/25/2005)
“To our Heavenly Father I give all the honor and glory. I was blessed to spend the afternoon with my son and husband fishing. When we take our eyes off of our circumstances and place them on our Heavenly Father, we are blessed to see Him move on our behalf. Praise Him in all things! Remember we overcome the accuser by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of our testimonies. God’s promise for my family is on its way! It is so beautiful to trust God so blindly and to take Him for His Word. Numbers 23:19 – ‘God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?’ 2 Corinthians 1:20 – For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.”  (Florida) (posted 1/27/2015)
* "My husband called and at the end of a long conversation he asked for forgiveness and asked for his wife and family back. Though he has moved to another city we are committed to restoring our marriage and family." (Florida) (posted 11/14/2008)
"Our anniversary was a few days ago. I spent the evening alone with no acknowledgment from my prodigal. Monday's "Charlyne Cares" was exactly how I was feeling. That devotion reminded me that it is about God's goodness, not my merit, and that we will have restoration in God's plan." (Colorado) (posted 1/2/2009)
"Last week out of the blue my husband wanted to have family night every week with me and the children. He is still in a relationship, but I see the hand of God. The funny thing is he calls and reminds me about the family night. Hallelujah." (Michigan) (posted 10/24/2008)
“I have been feeling that God wants me to pray for other hurting marriages in my area. I asked the Lord to show me if this was His will. I opened my Bible on Ezekiel 37, the passage about seeing dead bones everywhere and the Lord telling the prophet that if he spoke over these dead bones the Lord would give them life. I asked God if He wanted me to speak His Word over dead marriages. That night I opened my Bible at Jeremiah 46:27. ‘My people do not be afraid ...I will rescue them from that far away land where they are held prisoners. They will come home and live in peace.' I know God wants me to pray!”  (United Kingdom) (posted 10/23/2011)

“My family, when we left Chile, lost all contact with my dad's family. Growing up we had no grandparents to call our own nor aunts/uncles. As human beings we have a yearning in our hearts for connection with those that are part of our blood, our life. It's in our human nature to do so. I've never been back to Chile. It's been 38 years since I had heard from my dad's side of the family. I guess some time ago I had befriended on Facebook one of my aunties without even knowing it, and a few days ago her name triggered a memory which started a conversation, which now has started a domino effect. Tonight one of my other aunts made contact with me. I have five aunts (six with my mom’s sister) and four uncles and tons of cousins! This is truly a miracle for our family! It's been an emotional week. My marriage is still not restored but God is working in other areas of my life; He will bring my husband back.” (Canada) (posted 1/6/2014)
“It has been seven years since my husband came back home. Our marriage and love for one another is stronger than ever. God is good and He does restore marriages! My husband is a changed man. To all who are praying for their prodigal to come home, don’t stop praying!”  (Texas) (posted 8/11/2014)
“I received a text from my husband after many years of no contact. He wished me a Merry Christmas. This was the greatest gift I could receive.”  (Georgia) (posted 12/29/2014)
"I have been believing that God would restore my marriage. This past week my wife got sick and asked for my help with our kids. I took care of her all weekend. My wife told me that she feels so much closer to me." (North Carolina) (posted 1/15/2010)
"I turned in my seminary paperwork on Wednesday afternoon. I prayed if I should place my status as married and God led me to use married on the paperwork. Our divorce was granted the same day. God works all things for good for those who are called according to His purpose." (Florida) (posted 7/16/2010)
“I sure wish Brother Bob could have been here to know that my wife lives about 5 miles from me and she calls every now and then. She called a couple days ago and just before we hung up, I said ‘I love you’. She said, ‘I know.’ This testimony is so powerful! If the other standers could get to read all the details, they would jump for joy. May God bless RMM. Brother Bob, I know you made it to the streets of gold.” (Florida)  (posted 12/12/2011)
“I just wanted to give a quick praise report. Last night my husband and I were talking and he mentioned he had spoken to the OW that he was involved with about something not related to our situation. I stopped, took a deep breath, and said that I wished he wouldn't contact her. No crying, no blame, just a simple request. He said okay. God is good. All the time. He is repairing the breach. It's already done. I'm just seeing the manifestation of it more and more each day. Praying and standing for healed marriages everywhere. Thank You Jesus. All the glory to God.”  (North Carolina)  (posted 8/13/2012)

"After a long separation and many false attempts, my husband has finally come home. Though many encouraged me to go on with my life, I stood and prayed that my husband would love me. The Lord began to put love in my husband’s heart months ago. The more I prayed, the worse it was getting, then the Lord stepped in. My husband returned suddenly. We have a long road ahead, but God will do what He said He will do. Prayer changes things. I realized that no matter what others may say, God has the last say." (Maryland)

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. O my Strength, I sing praise to you; you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God.  Psalm 59:16-17  (posted 2/4/2012)
“Today is a wonderful day amidst my standing struggle. I prayed all weekend that God would take the cup of suffering from me and I felt that this week good things were coming. Blessings started flowing in when I awoke! Isaiah 61:3- He sent me to comfort those who grieve, to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes.Since my standing and walk with the Lord, God reminds me of scriptures randomly in my head at the right times and this scripture came to me today after a Christian painter agreed to paint my 'marriage struggle story.' He takes a personal testimony and is inspired by God to paint it. I never thought my story was that important to God, but it is. Many other wonderful things are happening today. I can't wait to see what the rest of the day brings. Praise God!” (Arizona)  (posted 6/19/2012)
