“The day after Christmas, my separated wife told me she had filed for divorce. I cried out to God to give me a sign to continue my stand. A few minutes later a song, I Can Only Imagine, came on the radio. It is a song God has used throughout my stand when I need to hear from Him. A song that was special to me and my wife. He then spoke to my heart that He is here, to have faith, and He would heal my marriage. He kept saying I am God and to be ready because He was going to touch her so that she would know He is God. I immediately was enveloped in such peace. All glory to my Heavenly Father!”  (Oklahoma)
“Praise the Lord! I thank God that through the Spirit of the living God, I found RMM some years ago. I am praying for my husband’s salvation and repentance. I visited the testimonial page for the first time and I was so encouraged by other standers’ testimonies. While reading the testimonies, I was asking God to show me hope for my marriage to be restored. God answered my prayer straight away because, for the first time, my prodigal husband sent me a gospel song via text. Alleluia! God is faithful and His Words never come back void.”  (United Kingdom)
"My prodigal took the kids on a trip during the Christmas vacation. When he brought them home, he came all the way in the house to my bedroom door to hand me something. I was so thankful that God brought him into our home that we had built together." (Tennessee)

“My marriage is restored! After two plus years of standing and praying God sent my husband home. Don't give up. Keep praying and allow God to work and prepare you for the return of your prodigal spouse. He will do it.”  (Maryland)

The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my fathers God, and I will exalt him. Exodus 15:2
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Exodus 14:13-14
“Glory to God, we have a restored marriage. I have been fasting, praying and breathing the Word of God every day. And just when things felt the most hopeless and discouraging, SUDDENLY my wife called. Reconciliation was the last thing I expected. BUT GOD totally smashed the wall between us. My wife told me that she had been having dreams, sorrow and she broke into despair. She opened up a secret that shook our world and if not for the grace of God and my walk with Him, none would be prepared to embrace the news. But the response was nothing short of a miracle. Only the blood of Jesus could do such a miraculous healing. We are planning to remarry. I still pinch myself. God is true to His Word. Jeremiah 29:11-14.” (Indonesia)
“My husband left during the middle of my pregnancy I was devastated; I had no idea what my son and I were going to do. But I continued to pray for my husband morning and night and God is working! He is starting to come around more and we are beginning to talk again. I continue to pray he returns home. Giving God all the GLORY!”  (South Carolina) 
  “My wife and I were divorced. But only months later she began to come and see me and tell me she was sorry and she loved me. She got pregnant with the other man and pulled away for a time, but several months later she came home. A year after she left she suddenly came home a new person in Christ. We were remarried this year and just had a little baby boy whom I adopted. God has blessed us more than we deserve. Our marriage is so much better and more wonderful than words can express.”  (Maryland)
“After several months of separation, my husband admitted yesterday that the grass is not greener on the other side. My suddenly might still be a while away, and he hasn’t said anything about coming back, but with God everything is possible. He is showing me a bit of what is happening on the other side of the mountain, and showing me that the pig pen is not that good after all. PTL!” (Florida)

"My husband and I remarried. We were divorced six weeks when we remarried. Our separation was horrific. I lost my job and had major health problems, but God provided. Hearing some of the turmoil and struggles that my husband went through, I knew each one was God's piercing of his heart. Don't give up. Stand firm. God is our Healer." (South Carolina)

"I had a wonderful, uplifting day singing God's praises all through my work day. That evening, Satan stepped in to bring my spirits down. I realized it was a spiritual attack on me and cried out to God to help me. As I was driving down the street, I read a church sign that said, 'Your Father wants to talk to you. Read page 707 in your Bible.' I grabbed my Bible and read that page at the next light. The very short page started with Ephesians 6:13. Thank you, Lord for reminding me to wear the full armor of God. How I laughed and cried and praised my Lord and Savior." (Tennessee)
"My husband's adultery tore our marriage apart. I finally moved out of our home and into an apartment with our kids. After a brief reconciliation we split up again. It had been months since my kids and I had seen or heard from him. Suddenly two weeks ago, he came to see our sons and brought them several gifts. I know that this is a sign that prayers work. I'm still standing on God's promises! God started a good work in my husband and I know that He is faithful to complete it. Never give up fellow standers." (Georgia)
“Praise God! He is so amazing as it says in Ephesians 3:20! During my stand I have been tithing on my gross income and give offerings as the Holy Spirit directs me to. God will provide all your needs as He says in Philippians  4:19. I received an unexpected check in the mail and also a family member brought me a check to cover more than half of my child's college tuition for this upcoming year. I also received a mortgage modification and I am believing God that I will be able to keep my home. He has also brought laborers to help me to do work on my house. He is always right on time. He has provided so many other times in so many ways. Trust God, He will take care of you! He is so awesome! Thank You my Father God! I love You Lord! Hallelujah!”  (Connecticut) 
“December has been a long month for me. I asked the Lord if I was really supposed to stand for my marriage. That night I dreamed I was driving in snow and the road was slippery and I had to adjust my speed to maintain control. Then there was a snow storm that took the car in a tailspin; I could not see anything and I cried out to Jesus to save me! When the car rested, it was parked safely surrounded by cars. It was clearly an act of God. I got out the car and slipped, holding on to a tree trunk to prevent from falling in a ditch. People passed me by and either would not or could not help me. There was ONE man who stopped to help me He took His time doing so but I just held on. Wait on God.”  (California)
"For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life. But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, "You are my God." My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me." Psalm 31:13-15
"My prodigal husband has never left home. I have been praying and fasting for some time and am seeing great changes in my husband! He is starting to desire to make our marriage work! He gets up and wants to go to church on Sundays, and says he learns so much there. We have Bible reading time each night! Praise God! My husband is also becoming more patient and watching his words as am I! He told me he used to think I was nuts as I began to live for God but now he says he sees that is the way!! PTL!"  (Illinois) 
“Praise God for His faithfulness. My husband and I sadly finalized our divorce today. I had zero ways to communicate with him. After the final judgment today, he stopped and talked to me for several minutes. He even gave me a hug and let me kiss his hand after our conversation. I can tell so clearly that God is working in his life. He is fighting back hard, but I know God is softening his heart. Our divorce may be final, but God has future plans for us! Even when all hope seems lost, even when your spouse refuses to speak to you, even when the divorce is final and the ink is dry, do not give up! Keep praying. God answers prayers and wants to restore marriages.”  (Florida) 
Scripture keeps me focused and gives me a reason to stand. I'm strengthened by His word and overcoming by the Word of God. God speaks to me with His Word. Thanks to God for His faithfulness. May the Lord truly be our guide, our Shepherd and our Healer! He is in control. We can be still and know that He is God.  (North Carolina)
"I thank God for restoring my marriage step by step. My husband and I are now rebuilding our relationship. He really is the God of restoration and He is so faithful." (United Kingdom)
“I know that God wants me to have a relationship with Him and my husband to surrender his life. I was told to not fear being alone. I am praying for healing and restoration of our marriage. I have learned some valuable things these past months. My relationship with God is getting stronger and I’m finding myself in church more, praying more, and seeking Him more. I too shall have a testimony.”  (Ohio) 
“My spouse is leaving to be out of state to spend time with his mom without the OW, mentioning the financial struggle to go. We had filed our taxes late and were anticipating a small refund. The Lord has blessed me with bit of extra income, so He prompted me to give my spouse money for the trip. I asked the Lord if I was doing it for the right reasons (not to manipulate). Within seconds, a ‘Good Faith’ van passed me. I gave him the money yesterday and he thanked me, another big praise. I picked up the mail today from the Post Office, and the refund check was there! Yes, God is faithful and provides, reminding me again that our loving Father is in control (thankfully!) even as I wait together with Him for our beloved to return first to the heart of God. Join me in prayer that God speaks strongly and clearly to us and our spouses through the Word of God. Be encouraged my fellow standers and warriors!”  (California)

“My suddenly moment happened after months of praying for my husband. I prayed that morning that the Lord would surprise me somehow through my husband and that night, He did. The date was a special date to the both of us and God knew it. My husband came home changed, PTL. The Lord is continuing to restore us and renew our hearts towards Him. I will forever be thankful to RMM and all your prayers. Don't give up, God never will!”  (Florida)

“I just joined the craft group at my church and am learning to knit. I've been amazed to find that all the difficult-looking stitches are just made up of various combinations of the two basic stitches, knit and purl. I'm taking this as God's instructions for my stand: just keep on doing what seemed at first to be too difficult and unpromising, and you will be amazed at the results.”  (United Kingdom) 
“I submitted a testimony that God had my sister-in-law and I fasting and praying for my marriage on the day that my husband emailed me an agreement to start the divorce process. We’ve been praying and believing that he’d be home by Thanksgiving and I’d spend Saturday with his family. When he changed his status on social media to separated, I sent him a heartfelt email as God placed on my heart what to say. That evening, my husband’s heart came home. Thursday he stood up in front of his family and told everyone that we were going to work things out. Saturday we went to his parents’ house as a family. God has done an amazing work in both of us and we are on our way to a restored marriage. I’m trusting God’s time. He answers prayers in ways we could never imagine. Don’t give up. What started as the worst week ended as the best!”  (Minnesota)
"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)

"I asked the Lord what is His will for my marriage. I ask Him to give me a sign by having my spouse call me on Mother's Day. Praise God, that was the first call that I received Sunday morning. My husband also surprised me the next day and wished me a Happy Birthday. God is good." (Alabama)

"Praise His holy name, my husband has come home. After months of separation, a request for divorce and days and nights of anguish and desperation, my husband unexpectedly asked to come back into our lives on Palm Sunday. Like many others, I could not have made it without your ministry. The battle for my husband's soul still rages, but God's promises are true." (Florida)
"God has been working in many ways in my life. He first stopped me from filing for divorce the day I was going to do it. My husband filed a week later. We've had six court dates and every time they've been cancelled the day before. God sent me to this Ministry." (Indiana)
“I came across Charlyne Cares in early 2011 when my marriage was on the brink of divorce. God is great and He turned things around for me. My husband is now a Christian and God has blessed us with our first child. Whatever the devil has robbed me of, God has returned it many folds back to me. Joel 2:25-26 – ‘I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten… You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God who has worked wonders for you….’ Please trust God in this journey of standing. Surrender and submit your marriage into God’s hand and you will be amazed at how He can turn things around. Above all, enjoy the intimacy walk with God as you trust and rely on Him, knowing that His love is greater and more rewarding than your spouse’s love.”  (Singapore)
“I just read Monday’s devotional and it spoke to me so loudly and really touched my heart. Two weeks ago I was in such a depression and I met with my friend and we were discussing some of the issues and she said to me, ‘God just told me about a book you should read; it's called Redeeming Love.’ I purchased the book that night and it had a profound effect on me and how God truly loves us and will take our situations or circumstances and work them together for our good. I would recommend it to all standers.”  (Ohio) 
“I just read your Sunday devotionaland was just amazed on how God can speak to someone who is in another part of the world, giving the same assurance of restoration through a song. Yes, last week on my drive home I, too, received the blessing of that song by Chris August, Restore. What an awesome God we have. He hears us. Praise God, He has ONE answer for all our longings: He will RESTORE!”  (Australia) 
“Tonight I was watching a movie that talked about how a three strand cord is not easily broken and how God needs to be that third strand that holds your marriage together. God spoke to me through this and I realized that God never intended my husband and I to be completely broken apart, as He is that third strand. At the end of the movie, it is said that sometimes God allows everything to be turned upside down so that we can learn to live right side up. God truly spoke to me tonight telling me that we are going be all right. Our marriage isn't dead, just turned upside down. I have such peace today. The enemy is NOT allowed here ever again! Praise your Creator! Let Him be that third strand and you will be right side up in no time! God is awesome.” (Colorado)
“I have been a faithful stander for many years. I have never taken my wedding ring off and pray daily for my ex-wife and our four children. She has been remarried to a non-believer. She called me and invited me over for Thanksgiving. Three of my children will be there along with two grandchildren. Pray that I will be a godly example and witness. I hope you all at Rejoice Ministries had a Happy Thanksgiving!" (California) 
“It was a blessing that God sent me to your ministry. I began to pray for my spouse and that God would restore our marriage. Within two weeks of listening to God and applying your godly principles, I have seen the most magnificent change in my husband! He has visited me twice today and has called over 30 times! He has never done these things. I will continue to be a part of this ministry and make the changes to be in the will of God! Hallelujah!”  (Arkansas)

“Praise God, my marriage is reconciled. Thank you for your ministry, it has kept me going! I wouldn't have made it otherwise!”  (Texas) 

“God is worthy of all praise. After standing for some time now I saw my first Covenant Transport Truck. I was so excited. I began to praise God. It was so amazing. It traveled on the same highway as I was on the way to see my dearly beloved husband. God is faithful if we just believe.”  (Georgia) 
"We walk by faith, not by sight." 2 Corinthians 5:7
“My divorce was finalized about a month ago but throughout, even knowing that my husband wanted to go through with it, I felt a real sense of peace. I told my Lord Jesus that I would not fight my husband but would trust Him! Last night my husband came to visit and told me that he has been looking for his own place. He also applied for a job in another city and would like my daughter and I to eventually join him if he gets it. I jokingly told him, ‘Well now you are going to have to marry me again,’ to which he replied, ‘I want to when I can financially afford to.’  Isaiah 43:18-19. God is busy doing a new thing! Now I'm just trusting God to complete His work and do a new thing in my husband’s heart! Praise God He is awesome!”  (South Africa) 
“I want to encourage all standers to keep on praying for your prodigal spouses because your prayers are working. My husband wanted a divorce from me last year and I was devastated, angry and mad. I was ready to give up when I found your website. I was then encouraged to pray and stand for my prodigal spouse and then the Lord began to change my heart as well as his. He has since called off the divorce and wants us to work it out. Praise God! We still have a long way to go to repair our marriage, and through prayer it will be done!” (Georgia)  
"Things are looking up. My wife finished basic training last week and now she is calling and texting me more times than I can count. I told her I am still praying for her and our marriage and she asked me to continue to pray for her. Thanks go to the Lord." (Louisiana)
“All glory and honor to God. He has restored and renewed our marriage. Not only do I see God’s hand working in our marriage but there are times when my husband has asked me to share our story with someone else who is hurting. God can and will move the mountain if we would just believe. The Lord gave me Amos 9:11 to hold onto and He has been faithful to His Word. Hold on standers, your breakthrough is on its way. He's going to come through.”  (Connecticut) 
“I was told by my husband that he has filed for legal separation and after it divorce will come. I have been reading on it and it says that legal separation is a time a spouse uses to clear his mind and for working on marriage. PTL! He could have chosen the easiest and fastest way. His last message said his heart will always belong to me. I want his heart to belong to God and I know God is working on him as well as on me. I know that even though physically we are so far from each other now, God will bring us together soon. I have seen miracles in our marriage. I know one day we both will praise the Lord together.”  (Ecuador) 
"My husband calls almost every day saying how sorry he is. When I came home from work last night there was big box waiting for me at my door. It was a gift from my husband. I know that God is a restorer and He is working on our behalf even now. God is good." (Louisiana)
“Though my husband is not yet home, I praise God that over this last week, we spent five days on and off together! The beginning of the week, he came by for a few hours when our kids were in bed, so we could talk. The next day, for the first time in many years, he came back to spend the day together as a family. He also celebrated our daughter’s birthday with us for the first time in years. I am so excited and grateful as it was so nice to be a family again. Thank God He is moving! Please pray for us, it’s hard to wait. I am keeping my fellow standers in prayer too. God Bless!” (Washington)
“I was at work feeling really sad. I sort through used books. I was having a conversation with God. I asked for Him to speak to me. Just a little while later I came across a used Bible. I said, ‘Lord give me verse.’ I skimmed through and saw a single highlighted verse. Ephesians 2:14 (NKJV)  For he himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation. The NKJV is the only version that calls it the middle wall of separation. The verse was extra special because my husband is a Jew and I am gentile.”  (North Carolina)
"God is great and worthy to be praised. My prodigal is not home yet, but I can see God's hand working in his life. It is the little things that are changing in both of us. God always keeps His promises." (Connecticut)
"I had outpatient surgery this week. My prodigal offered to drive me. He stayed with me the entire time. To my surprise he reached down and kissed me as they rolled me away. I was thanking Jesus all the way to the operating room. As he left me at home in the care of my adult daughter, he tucked me into our bed and kissed me again. He has called me every day. God is good, I have seen many prayers coming to pass lately. My God is ever faithful." (California)
