"I just want to share my experience. My husband and I had been married for 17 years when we got divorced this past April. We wereChristians who went astray for a time...long enough for Satan to snatch my soul temporarily and deceive me. I was divorced within 6 weeks and I thought I was happy. My husband never stopped praying or loving me. He remained faithful and trust God the whole time of our divorce. I was the Prodigal who was once lost, but thanks to God's mercy and my husband's faithfulness and prays...I am now found. God was there all along for me. No matter how hard I tried, I could not fight the will of God. God was always there speaking to my heart. The will of God is much stronger than any temptation from Satan. My husband and I were remarried on November 14, 1999."
"I received a phone call from my husband after four years asking to meet with me. I have prayed for him and believed God to restore our marriage even though he divorced me. I knew God still saw us as married and I just lived my life for the Lord and stood for the restoration of our marriage. We got together and he wanted to ask mefor forgiveness. Then he wrote me a email telling me he still loved me and that the last couple of years he has been getting counseling and with the help of Jesus he is getting healed. He said he knows we will be back together some day, but he still needs some more healing and we will be back together in His time. We have met again since then and visited and we will be getting together again at the end of the month. He is going to be moving to another state for work and we will keeping in contact. This is a miracle that we are communicating so I am praising the Lord." (Oregon)

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy." Psalm 126:3-5

"A few years ago I was dependent on Rejoice Marriage Ministries to keep me on track while God restored my marriage. If God can soften the heart of my prodigal He can do anything. God wants your prodigal back." (Florida)

"I kicked my husband out in a dramatic scene. That was my big mistake. I should never have taken things into my own hands. I should have gone to God first. After months of separation and waging a truly spiritual war against Satan, my husband came home for the Glory of God. I have turned my life to God and am grateful for what happened because it brought me to Him. Thank You, Father."  (Florida)

“The Lord urged me to buy my husband a Father's Day present. It was something he really wanted for his last birthday and we could not afford it. The Lord has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams in the time my beloved has been absent from our home. I was able to buy him the gift. The Lord demonstrated his faithfulness by urging my husband to spend the night in our home for Father's Day. Even though he slept in the guest room, it was nice having him home. He confessed he wasn't happy, but he was afraid of being miserable if he came home for good. I prayed against the enemy all night. This morning, my beloved said he will consider trying again. He even left his things here. Praise the Lord for He is faithful!”  (Florida)
“Praise God for His faithfulness when we act in obedience! My husband and I have been separated for a few months. In that time, he returned to the OW and said they were going to get married. I filed for divorce as I gave up hope. God led me to RMM two days after Christmas. I withdrew the divorce that day and began a serious stand for my marriage. The very next day my husband texted and called (none of this was happening before) and came to see us. God then led me to fast these past three weeks and praise God! I have seen miracle after miracle in my husband's life! He said he literally FEELS my prayers and can hear God speaking to him! He now wants to move back home! Don't give up, standers! Stay strong and keep your eyes on Jesus! All glory be to God!”  (Georgia)
“I have been dealing with some painful health issues for quite some time. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I cried out to the Lord in desperation, ‘Show me what to do about this pain.” Let me tell you, He didn’t mess around. Within days I had appointments for tests and visits. Today I am walking around relatively pain free, all because my Heavenly Husband went before me, opening doors, making things happen, providing a good outcome. All praise and glory to the Lord. (Nebraska)
"After many falls into the pit, my prodigal daughter has come home suddenly. The road she was on wounded her in many ways physically but I know my God has a road of recovery for her. Next will be her father. Thank You God for Your unique plan for healing and restoration." (Washington State)

“Praise The Lord! Through prayer and fasting my husband is now going to church every Sunday. God is very good! My husband still wants a divorce, but I know that God is speaking to him. I prayed for confirmation that God is working on him and is speaking to him, and my husband told me that he is going to church every Sunday. I give thanks to God for His miracles and blessings. Thank you, Charlyne and Rejoice Ministries for your prayers. God is awesome!”  (Texas)

"I have a praise for the Lord. We lost power Sunday night, when the remnants of the hurricane blew through. Everything that I just bought at the grocery store and put in the freezer was lost. A friend gave me gift cards for a restaurant and the grocery store, totaling what was ruined." (Pennsylvania)
“I have been standing for my marriage and the Lord has given me peace, joy, strength and financial provision. Today my Lord has helped me to fast and pray all day and not to be hurt or discouraged as this is Valentine’s season. The Holy Spirit even led me to buy an anniversary gift for my spouse and He told me to keep the gift as I would give it to my spouse when we meet! I want to encourage other standers to hold on to the Lord. He is our refuge and He gives us all we need -  peace, joy, finances, and most of all His love. I know my Lord is restoring my marriage. Dear standers, let us hold on to the Lord. He will never fail us. Be blessed. Standing until parted by death.”  (Kenya) 

“The Thursday before Easter, (husband) came to me and begged for my forgiveness. He said that he had been so wrong and he would do anything to have me and our daughters back. He had to reach his own rock bottom before he looked to the Lord and begged for help. The Lord has truly answered my prayers. Your daily Charlyne Cares have been a life saver. You have helped me change my life.” (North Carolina)

“I want to thank the Lord foremost for allowing me to see a day where I can say ‘Look what the Lord has done!’ Having been in a place where my children and I have lost everything that we have ever owned, valued or held dear, due to the separation of my husband and I, I am happy to say that this past week we have been blessed with our own apartment. Since the day we got it the Lord has provided and is literally filling our new home with what we need. To God be the glory! He is more than able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that you could think or imagine! Thank You Father!”  (Texas) 
"I have stood for the restoration of my marriage for nine years. If it had not been for God's grace and mercy, I would have quit a very long time ago, especially since over two years my husband has been in a non-covenant marriage. He announced to me two weeks ago, that he has left the other woman and is planning to file for a divorce. He wants to come home and for us to be re-married. Can I say it is finally over? No, it is only the beginning. Each time I wanted to give in, the Lord would remind me that He was in control and that it is He that fulfills His purpose for my life. Please continue to lift us up." (Texas)
"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)
“I received a summons for my final court date in the mail. Unless God intervenes, I will be divorced from my beloved. Through the tears, I read the papers closely, only to read that the plaintiff listed was not my husband! It was someone with the same first and last name, but a different middle name and address. Praise God! I'm sure someone will notify the court of the mistake and the date may not be changed at all. But I felt like God was speaking to me on that paper, saying, ‘I am still in control of this!’ With all the paperwork that court office had, containing the correct name and address, it was only by an act of God that it came to me completely incorrect. I will keep pressing forward, keep praying for my miracle and continue trusting in His Word alone. Thank you for your ministry!”  (Michigan) 

“Almost five years of separation, God has brought my husband home! He has been so faithful. I am so thankful for all that God has done in my own heart, in my family, in our marriage and in my husband’s heart. A few days prior to my spouse's return, God brought me to Isaiah 62:4. To all standers who want to give up, please don't. God's plan and purpose will prevail and you will be so blessed. You may not know it now, but your spouse is taking notice of all that you do and someday you will see the soft heart the Lord gives. Be blessed dear standers, fight the good fight for HE is faithful and He has called YOU!”  (New York)

“I'm still standing after years of separation. My husband has little to no contact with me. I know God is the God of the impossible and I'm standing in the gap for our marriage. I've finally let go and let God. The majority of my Christian friends and family have lost faith and are pushing me to move on and divorce. My husband and I are both believers and I'm praying for his salvation and conviction. I've read so many beautiful testimonies and know one day I'll share one of my own. God instructed me to post this as an act of faith and that my next post will be the reconciliation of my marriage. My prayer is that my prodigal husband returns by Christmas back in love and full of the Holy Spirit. May God's divine will be done.”  (Ohio) 
"Months ago I found my prodigal's original wedding ring. The day after we married we bought a second one because of a skin reaction to the first. I have worn his ring on my thumb ever since I found it again. This last week I was sitting with my prodigal in the hospital, and he saw the ring on my thumb. He was amazed that I was wearing it. He took it off of my finger, and played with it through the rest of my visit. I realized that he had kept it. The next day when I visited, he was wearing the ring on his ring finger, and his skin was fine. God has done a mighty thing." (Texas)
“Praise God Almighty. God has been beyond good to me, it's amazing. Today I can testify that I am whole again. I am genuinely happy and have been living life to the fullest. God has blessed me with finances, health, vacations, peace, joy and love from family and friends. I even have a glow that people have noticed. I never thought I could enjoy life so much without my husband's presence. God has been my wonderful husband and I'm so in love with Him. In my joy, I finally felt sorry for my husband. I've begged God to have mercy on him. Now I'm focused on his rescue from the OW and Hell.”  (South Africa)
“Chocolate on the trail, is how one saint referred to the sign posts the Lord provides to keep us encouraged on the journey; how He tells us to keep going on, that we are in the right direction. On Sunday, I got another chocolate on the trail. My church made the first announcement for the ladies' marriage class that I will be facilitating --- after waiting for approval for close to five years. The chocolate was Philippians 4:4, the RMM founding scripture, was the memory scripture for Sunday as scheduled in my prayer book. Here is my prayer for all standers. As Easter approaches and we are inundated with the desire to share celebration chocolate with others, let us aim for 'divine chocolate' by praying earnestly for our spouses. In today's devotional, Charlyne used Bob's devotional to admonish us to pray even more for our spouses during the Easter holiday.”  (Canada) 
“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!”  Luke 1:45 

“My husband moved home some weeks ago. I don't even have words. BUT GOD. After all of the mountains and pain and hurt. God has brought restoration to our home and started the healing process. I don't know what to say. We have so far to go, but God is here and He is healing us and helping my husband find his way. I don't even have words for how thankful I am, to Him be ALL THE GLORY. Thank You, Jesus. Not for a moment did I ever walk alone. Don't ever give up your stand. With God ALL things are possible.”  (Tennessee)

“My spouse left and has filed for divorce. I finally went to see a lawyer and she said she's a Christian and doesn’t encourage divorce. She also said that God can heal anything and she'll be praying for me. My prayers were answered in finding a Christian attorney who isn't pushy about divorce.”  (Kentucky)  
"I prayed that God would show me a sign that He hears me and asked that He have my husband contact me. I received a text from my husband that asked if I was in town. I was so happy. I've traveled to his area a few times since he's been there and never has he reached out to me. Glory be to God." (Maryland)
"My husband is still home. Praise to our wonderful God, He is answering prayers I am praying during my stand. He is so faithful." (South Africa)

"Easter Sunday I went to my home church, Times Square Church, in New York City, where the Pastor is David Walkerton. He opened up his sermon by saying, ‘Brothers and Sisters, I am not going to deliver an Easter message today. I feel moved by the Holy Spirit to preach about something else. I am convinced it is the Holy Spirit urging me to speak about this. I know it is Easter and you were not expecting this, but when the Holy Spirit moves, you listen. So, today's sermon is: ‘How Satan Breaks Up Marriages.’ That is what the entire sermon was about on Easter Sunday! The children's choir, which has over children in it, was performing, so there were many prodigal parents there that day. Pastor Walkerton spoke to all prodigals and told them all to go home. No matter what, to go home. He said he could not live with himself if he did not speak out on this! He was tough, he loving, he was clear, he spoke with urgency, and he backed it up extremely well with scripture. It was excellent." (New York)

“After some years apart and with no contact from my wife, she sent me a photo of herself, and her contact details to my mobile last week.”  (South Africa) 
"For weeks my husband has been telling me and our kids that he is coming back home to our area. He wants to do things the right way this time in our marriage and he wants his family back. He said he needs to work on his own heart with God first so he doesn't hurt us again. Thank You, God, I know You are working." (Florida)

“Hallelujah! After being a prodigal wife for almost two years, God had blessed me with a softened heart. Much to my dismay, my standing husband suddenly changed. He was no longer interested in me. Deeply saddened and hurt, I lost hope with another woman being in the picture. I started to pray like I never did before. My children prayed often. I asked others to pray for my family if they hadn't already been doing so. Then a weekend of unfortunate events led to a sudden change of heart for my husband. It only took a few days for God to soften his heart and bring him back home. We are all under the same roof again and loving each minute. We've vowed to keep God in our lives and pray for all marriages. I give God all the glory. Don't ever give up! Keep standing!”  (Florida)

“After five months of the Lord restoring our marriage, he blessed me with an amazing birthday gift. We are expecting our third baby! I can’t praise the Lord enough for all He has done in our lives. I feel honored to carry a child that belongs to God, and raise this child to one day be part of God’s kingdom. God has an eternal purpose for our lives; He wants a family of many children like Jesus (Romans 8:29). It’s a blessing having a restored marriage to glorify His name, and now a baby to raise for His glory. Thank You Lord!”  (Massachusetts)
“I thought my marriage was over, and still struggle with standing daily. But now my husband is 'thinking' about getting back together and says he misses me. That is a good sign. I have to keep standing in hopes that God will work a miracle in our marriage. I would love nothing more than to have a marriage that pleases God."  (Georgia) 
"My husband called yesterday on my birthday to say he was sorry and wanted to come back. He has been back to church and praying. God’s Word is true." (United Kingdom)
"This week, during one of the enemy's attacks, I was given Jeremiah 29:11 and Bob's statement, 'God doesn't say He can but that He will provide.' On that day He orchestrated the convergence of two men at my home. One came to work on a septic issue and the other to repair a huge mechanical problem that would cost thousands of dollars. They were not scheduled to be there at the same time. I was gifted the primary mechanical part by one who just happened to have it idle in his shop for over a year." (Pennsylvania)
"Yesterday my wife had to drop by to give me a check. I went out to the car to hug the kids before she left and noticed she was listening to Christian radio. I think she had quit listening when we started having problems. God spoke to me and said He will work in His time and not mine." (North Carolina)
"I was feeling distressed about my stand. God knew I needed another sign. When I came home, my daughter told me she spent some quality time with my husband. God is working on the other side of the mountain. I give God the glory because He will answer us before we even pray." (Ohio)
"I am rejoicing that even though my husband filed divorce papers weeks ago, I have not received them. Praise the Lord. I realize the spiritual battle is intense but my God has a plan and so it is as good as done. Because it is written that by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony the devil is defeated. I am rejoicing in the work that is done regardless of what I see." (New Mexico)
"On Tuesday my daughter called me at work to say a man came to the door to tell her he had a delivery. There were several boxes of food and one with a beautiful harvest centerpiece. She asked what this was and he said a gift from God. Friday night we were hit by the hurricane and have now been without power for 10 days with more to come. The food has been provision and the centerpiece complete with candle holder has provided light in our home for several nights. What a blessing." (Texas)

“Praise God, He is worthy. After standing for some time, my husband has purchased a ticket to join me and our family in my home country at the end of the month. I was given Ezekiel 36:36 early in my stand and dreams and confirmation of what my God would do and He did what seemed impossible to man. God is still working on saving my husband but I believe my rhema word throughout my stand, ‘He is Able.’ Ephesians 3:20. I also thank God for my support prayer partner and dear friend. I thank God for leading me to this site and thank you Rejoice Ministries for all your support. I have grown with my Savior and can now say He is my idol and not my husband. Our God is a jealous God!! Standers don't give up, keep praying, fasting and believing. I will still continue by God's grace to do my fasting and prayer for God is not finished. My testimony and my marriage and myself and my husband will proclaim to the people round about us that God's name will be PRAISED!!!”  (Saint Lucia)

"For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross." Colossians 1:19-20
“God is awesome! My prodigal and I are separated but I am so encouraged regardless of the attitude of my spouse and my in-laws. Since I turned everything over to God and stopped responding to text messages and phone calls, God has truly blessed me and my kids. God is in the midst and deserves all the glory. I received a text from my spouse that he is moving back home. Although he says it's due to finances, I know beyond a doubt it's God. I know God is sending him home to a new woman. I pray that God will continue to work a miracle in our life. Hasten to me, oh Lord, for I am in need. I pray that all the prodigal spouses return home to new spouse so that they may see God in us and repent. I pray that all prodigals will accept the Lord.PTL! Healing is done.”  (Alabama) 
"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)
“PTL! A few days after the Holy Spirit, simultaneously, instructed a fellow Christian friend and I to pray for my spouse, he called me to asked me to be do something for him that I could not have imagined in my wildest would happen. I have not had much contact with him and the few were very angry on his part. I have to also give thanks to God for the godly friends andintercessors and thank Him for an answered prayer about a praying partner, who God lovingly placed on my path two months prior. Thanks to this young lady and some other friends, I had a recent victory from lies of the enemy. Praise God, I will always claim Isaiah 54:17. God is working wonders in me every day. In God I trust as He is the builder/rebuilder of our lives. Amen.”  (Florida)
“There have been many, many prayers for my prodigal over the last four months for a lot of things but one specifically was for God to remove his heart of stone and give him a new heart of flesh. Yesterday he informed my mom that he had a dream the night before that my mom was performing surgery on him; that she had cut him open and had rib spreaders and such and had removed his heart... He said she had a bag of hearts and replaced his heart with a new one! My mom then informed me that she’s been praying for God to give my prodigal a new heart of flesh! PTL for showing confirmation of prayers through my prodigal”  (Missouri)
"God is so good. I had to get my things out of my prodigal's house and I was able to spend some time with him and even go out to lunch. My husband got to see Christ in me and hear about my belief that God is restoring our marriage. To God be the glory." (Ohio)
"Today I feel a peace that I have not felt in a long time. I was having a very down week, missing my wife and praying very hard for her, me and our kids. Last night I dreamt that my wife was home, I know it was not just wishful thinking, but God telling me that she will be back one day. I am feeling much better and I have been thanking and praising the Lord. Our God is wonderful." (Illinois)
"God is so good. I thank God for His faithfulness. After many months of being in the far country, my spouse suddenly and unexpectedly came home. We had dinner one night, and the following day, he returned with his bags. Glory to God, He restores." (California)
“I just want to send up praises to the LORD. My husband and I have been spending more and more time together lately. It's like we are getting to know each other all over again. God is in the midst and He is in complete and perfect control. I want to thank Him for bringing me to a place in my life where I learned to depend on Him and Him alone. I know that He is working ALL things together for my good; no matter what it looks like or what it feels like, it is ALL for my good and His glory.”  (North Carolina) 
"To God be the Glory for the things He has done. Today my prodigal spouse stopped by to pick up some papers. I have not seen him in months. He has apologized for his actions and says that he wants to come home. I have been praying and standing. Many times I wanted to give up, but God moved and I am grateful." (Louisiana)
