"My husband is out of town all week for work. My kids have been really struggling with this as sometimes they go two weeks without seeing their dad. I asked his parents to pray for our children since they are sad about seeing their dad so little. While praying about my husband's response, God spoke that this battle is not mine to fight. I have also been praying that God will turn my husband's heart back to his kids, and this morning he called to tell me of his plans to see the kids more often. God answers every prayer!!"  (North Carolina)

"I was served with divorce papers the day after Christmas. The final hearing was two days after Easter. One week later my husband decided it was wrong what he was doing and wanted to return to his family. My marriage is now restored and we are working towards building a better life with God's grace." (Florida)
“I have been praying and fasting that God send the OW to a foreign land. I found out that is happening and she will be leaving soon. I just know that God honors prayers. I know now that the soul ties will be cut between him and her. God is going to restore my marriage and my husband’s relationship with the Lord.”  (Maryland) 
After a few years my husband called suddenly to ask for forgiveness. We met this week and spent time together. We will see each other tomorrow at a concert. Neither of us knew we would be attending together as tickets were purchased before the phone call. I thank my God for all He is doing." (Canada)
"My husband left our family as a lost sheep. During this time I prayed daily for the restoration of our marriage. My friends didn't understand. I loved my husband and knew God would bring his lost sheep home. My prayers were answered almost two years after my husband left. I praise God we are stronger than ever. Thank you for having given me the daily strength, in addition to my prayers, to make it through." (Washington)
“I am together with my husband again after the hardest months of my life. Even if it was the most painful time, it was also the most important and amazing time because I developed a relationship with God and  learned that life without God is not life at all. I am still fighting in this battle but I am not afraid anymore because God has done all He promised to me starting with bringing me back home. I want to thank you for your prayers and I will keep praying for you. Don't give up standers, don't let the enemy destroy what belongs to you. Be sure that God will restore your marriage because He is the only one who can make the impossible possible. Don't lose faith, just believe with all your heart that God has everything under control. Never give up!”  (Belgium)
“One day, discouraged, and crying out to God, I flipped open my Bible and highlighted was, Jesus said to her, 'Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?'John 11:40. Now reading the scripture before it, it says, Jesus said,"Take away the stone," reminding me that Jesus will remove the stone in my husband's heart, and resurrect new life in my husband's heart. Amen! Praise the Lord.”  (Florida) 

"My prodigal husband has our children for his weekend visit. He had bought them a new puppy. They called today asking to stay an extra day for the long weekend. I said, "yes." He hopped on the phone, told me the puppy was for me too and invited us all to church together for Easter. Praise be to God." (Australia)

“PTL! I was hurt because the OM was over at my in-law’s house. I cried out, ‘Lord, what do you want me to do?’ This morning I was given Micah 6:8 and a chorus in the theme song Courageous, a movie about being a Christian man. The song contains the special lyric, ‘We will love our wives and children, we refuse to let them fall.’ There were other signs on the way to work. I was late for work this morning, however right on God’s time. He set all of this up, for Him to answer me very clearly.”  (Ohio)
"A few years ago when God led me to your site, I was amazed and encouraged by the faith of others who had been standing for years. More than a few months seemed like forever then. But God is so faithful, loving and encouraging in many ways and through many people. My spouse has been through so much and is so far away that it looks impossible, but I know God is able to do the impossible. I wait, pray and rejoice over the resurrection and restoration of deader than dead marriages." (Florida)

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."   2 Chronicles 7:14

“Last week and weekend I was able to spend a lot of time with my wife just talking about catching up and even being very serious about a few things. It was wonderful! I was able to tell her I was praying for her and that I loved her and missed her even though she didn't seem quite ready to accept it. Just recently she informed me that she had broken up with the other person but told me that this means nothing for she and I. She still plans on seeking a divorce but I know God's Will will prevail no matter what happens. He is definitely working!”  (Kentucky) 
“My birthday was this month and very early I was awakened to a text from my prodigal. Since then he has taken us out to lunch, paid to have my truck fixed, and texted me back and forth. He has come by to see me when our son was not home. He asked for his house key back. I am amazed at our Lord and I give him all the praise and glory. I pray and will stand forever; I feel our suddenly is right around the corner.”  (Texas) 
“I was so discouraged by recent events. I'm was getting tired again, and sadly, Saturday I just cried and told God I was done, I can't stand any more, I will pray for his soul but I'm done with standing. At church the next morning, pastor prayed for me and said, ‘God is telling you not to give up, not to grow weary and tired, you will get your reward.’ I couldn't stop crying! God is the only one I told about my thoughts on giving up! Thank you RMM for being here to encourage me, but also for letting me share my excitement and even my sadness when no one else understands. I can't wait to share when I get my reward!” (Oregon)  
"I was feeling discouraged since my prodigal had not acknowledged my birthday. Then last night I got a call from a woman in my church who said she needed encouragement about the challenges in her marriage and felt led to call me. We prayed and I allowed the Lord to speak through me. We both were encouraged. God showed me that despite the current condition of my marriage I still am reflecting Him and His love and hope, rather than defeat or bitterness. To God be the glory." (North Carolina)
"Last week's Saturday Testimonies were full of things that I want to see happen for us. I printed them out, highlighted those things, and went to my car on my break and prayed to God specifically for every one of them. That day and the following days I started to see and hear the manifestations of God's answering them! He spoke to my heart. No coincidence. My husband is in our home this week and it's wonderful." (Texas)
“I just want to praise the Lord for His great and mighty work. My husband came home briefly in January. I saw the great and mighty things that God is doing and the promise of what can be during that time. We don't talk now but that is okay because my faith is renewed as I come out of the fire and remember to look to Him for guidance for everything. God can and will save us. I pray for my husband's salvation and thank the Lord for being my husband during this season. I pray that spouses everywhere are visited by Jesus and they hear Him call to them and they reach out for help. Thank You God for all You do for me and everyone. Thank You for Your love.”  (Nevada)
“Our God is truly a good God, to Him be the glory. I just finished reading the very encouraging Saturday Testimonies and am led to share that, although I see nothing in the natural, I continue to stand on God's promise of restoration. As stated at the Dallas conference and once again confirmed by all the miraculous testimonies, I'm not crazy. God is in the business of restoration, not only of our marriages but, more importantly, of us to Him! Never give up, God will do this!”  (Oklahoma)   
“My wife divorced me and I felt like my life was over. I literally cried out to our Lord begging for His help and He answered me. I was introduced to this website and the process has now begun. It is so hard, but the Lord has blessed me with so much that I am moving forward. And now my prodigal is talking and texting me! She calls ME! I go to see my kids and she doesn't want me to leave! We are talking more than we have in ages! I know I am on the right path, and will not quit! I love my wife, and WILL be back with her soon!"  (Texas) 
"Our son was so bad in his behavior that he was removed from school until he was evaluated. My son asked if he could talk to the judge and ask her not to let mommy and daddy get a divorce because it's wrong. I told my unsaved husband what our son said and he was speechless." (Illinois)

“After several years of standing for my marriage, I am so grateful to say my husband has returned home. Don't listen to the world’s way of thinking but trust and believe in the Almighty God. I'm so thankful for this site and its encouraging links. You need to be around others who know the amazing power of His Holy Word. Stand, with all your might. You will need patience and God's guidance. Jesus died for you and your spouse’s sins.”  (Texas) 

“God has been faithful to show me over and over again that my husband is coming home. I've stayed pure and drawn so close to the Lord that He shows me signs of His love on a daily basis. One incredibly awesome thing that He's done is give me an anticipation for Thanksgiving and Christmas that I can't explain! I have been so joyful this holiday season! In fact, it's the most joyful that I ever remember being! I know that this time of year is particularly hard on standers because their loved one isn't with them and other things associated with this season can also cause pain, but just remember this season is not about us! We don't have to sit in sorrow during the holidays, it's a choice. If we just ask our Lord to be our joy, He will!”  (Florida) 
"After months of standing in the gap and praying, the Lord has softened my husband's heart towards me. We have spoken on the phone three times in the last month. On Father's Day, I was honored to pray for my husband as he received the healing prayer. God does hear our prayers! Through the Holy Spirit's prompting and submitting to God and my husband and learning to respect them, I live in peace as I wait for the Lord to grant our total restoration experience one day at a time."  (South Carolina)  
"My husband and I are talking again. He has been spending more time helping around the house. I know God hears my prayers. I have faith and believe this is the beginning of God restoring our marriage for his glory." (Alabama)
“It is a long time now that I have prayed for our marriage to be restored. Now that I have found you, I am so grateful to know that I am not alone. The day I found your website I asked God for a sign that standing for my marriage is still right for me. Immediately a song came on the radio called, ‘Who Says You Can't Go Home.’ I was stunned by how quickly the Lord moves when we ask for help. I am trusting my marriage will be restored in God's time. He is so good and great!” (New York) 
“My father never left the family, but he was absent both emotionally and spiritually. The burden of caring for me and the household fell squarely on my mom's shoulders. At the time, I never understood why she stayed with my dad; why she put up with everything, put up with being hurt over and over. Now, while standing for my own marriage, I understand. My mother was very active in church and I was raised in a Christian household despite what my dad was doing. I have always valued the Christian example she set for me. But, it wasn't until I began my stand that I truly appreciated the godly example she set when I was younger regarding marriage and staying in your marriage no matter what. Due to this, we now have the closest relationship we've ever had. I praise God for using what was meant for evil to strengthen the relationship between me and my mom. He truly does make ALL things new.”  (North Carolina)
Wives, in the same way be submissiveto your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” 1 Peter 3:1-4   
“God brought my husband back to me in January after more than a year of standing, but the celebrations were cut short. I thanked God for everything and gave up. I was determined to move on. I asked God for a sign if I should continue standing or move on. I saw a status from my husband, who's stopped talking to me, which read, ‘It will be worth it in the end.’ Then a priest on TV spoke about never giving up or going back to the past.  I'm back standing and showing my husband 1 Corinthians 13 Love.” (South Africa)
"Today is my anniversary and I am so glad my husband and I are back together. I praise the Lord for this because it is only because of Him that this is happening. My boss let me have the day off to be with my husband. I hope soon that we will be together during the week, but right now we are a few hours apart during the week because we haven't sold our house yet, but I am with him on the weekends mostly. Thank You, Lord again for this." (Illinois)
“I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”  Ezekiel 11:19-20

“I am in awe of what God has done for my family in this past few weeks. Not only did my precious husband come home suddenly, before Thanksgiving, but as of yesterday our divorce was canceled! God totally spoke through my husband on a phone conference we had with the judge. When asked if we were in process of reconciliation- my husband said yes! I was led by the Holy Spirit to just keep quiet, pray and let my husband do all the talking! Today I received a text from a friend who said she had a vision of my unsaved husband playing guitar in church. How awesome is our God! I know I will be standing forever and this journey is far from over- but ‘Nothing is impossible with God!’ Throughout my stand I have and will continue to claim that and Luke 1:45 every single day! And yes, to the world my marriage was dead and buried... but God! I pray every day God continues to work in me as much or more as He works in my husband. PTL and thanks RMM.”  (Minnesota)

“It's amazing what God does through fasting. It has been many years since I fasted and God has been doing some amazing things in my life concerning my husband and me. However, this time of fasting produced results I wasn't expecting. God has broken off issues in my life that I thought I had dealt with. Not only that, but the other day, I knew in my heart that no longer is it all about restoring our marriage and about my husband coming home. But it is about me now. I realized that my prodigal will come home 'suddenly,’ but the work that has to be done in me is a process. Being around my husband yesterday at my son's I was able to see him in a different light. His behaviors have not changed, but I did not feel this overwhelming sadness for him. I am continuing my fast for two more weeks and am excited to see what else comes to the surface.”  (Texas) 
"I said a prayer asking the Lord to speak clearly to me, so that I can have no doubt what his plans are for my marriage. Later I opened an email from a friend, titled 'It is Over.' The message said, 'God has seen you struggling. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way.' Glory be to God, I feel my blessings are near." (British Virgin Islands)
"Today was a good day. My husband came by and we had a nice visit. I thank God because he softened my husband’s heart. I know God is working on him." (Maryland)
“I decided to close my lips and not talk to my husband anymore because every time we spoke we would just hurt each other. We have not communicated for a long period of time and a few days ago I wondered if he had filed for a divorce petition. I then asked God for a sign. My husband texted me yesterday, asking me for a divorce. At first I broke down but after praying, I realized this was the sign I had asked for. I wanted to know and there was my answer. God is great, and we should praise Him for everything in any circumstance. Don’t give up!”  (Texas) 
“I have been fasting, praying and reading Charlyne's daily devotionals and repeating the Stander's Affirmation. Well, a few days after the divorce this year, my husband started contacting me out of the blue. Then around the Christmas holidays, he came over and asked if he could hug me. I was shocked but I said yes. He held me and began to compliment me and tell me how much he missed me. Then a week later he came over and said that he was not over me and he was miserable in the other situation. He asked me to forgive him and he said that he wanted to come home. The tears of joy just rolled down my face and he gently wiped every tear and said that he is coming home. God promised to restore us the first day he left and now I see it happening. I'm excited just to know he's coming home.”  (Florida)

"I received the petition for divorce in the mail the same day my packet from Rejoice Ministries came. I began a 24-hour fast that night. I asked the Lord to speak to me and let me know He's working on the other side of the mountain and asked for a supernatural intervention. Sunday the pastor said that someone is seeking supernatural intervention from the Lord. I went to the altar and a prayer leader delivered this message from the Lord: 'I AM that I AM and your house is restored, your family and your children are restored.' What an awesome God we serve." (Virginia)
“My husband left me in several months ago; said he didn't love me and wanted a divorce. The first month I was beside myself. I gave up hope. After the first month passed I knew I had to turn back to God. I prayed every single day and promised God I would fully give him my marriage. I have attended RMM in July and August and felt encouraged to give my current testimony. God brought my husband home to me to stay last month. Now my husband, my son and I can be a family again. There is still so much healing to do but God is here to make us stronger than ever before. Thank you God.”  (Florida) 
"I saw a church sign that jumped out at me. We read and hear 'Nothing is too hard for God.' This sign said 'Nothing is hard for God.' It struck me immediately." (Tennessee)
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)
"I continue to believe and trust the Lord for restoration of our marriage. A new court date took place and the judge granted me support that may be enough to qualify me for a loan modification. This week I humbled myself to call my husband for help with the yard. He replied immediately and will be here on Friday. Typically he does not answer my calls. This was another sign from God that He is working on the other side of this mountain." (California)
“Four days ago I met with my wife after almost two years without seeing her. I brought a gift, we drank coffee and left. Today we met again. I said I still love you, I'm still in love with you, I am waiting for you, no matter how long, I'm waiting on God. I give glory to God for what He is doing. Thank you for this ministry where I found the words I never heard from my friends, family, brothers or pastor. (Venezuela)
"Our divorce was recently final. I was driving and asked God to reveal Himself to me and asked Him what I should do about our marriage at this point. A few minutes later, a truck came up on my right and on the back window, it read 'Pray without ceasing.' Under that it had the word 'Marriage.'" (Kentucky)
O LORD God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O LORD, and your faithfulness surrounds you.  Psalm 89:8
"Praise God, my husband is moving out of a rented house on the other side of town and into one right behind our home. He is spending more time at home. We've been talking. He told me that his friends have been telling him to go home. The people God is using are ones I would never expect." (Texas)
"After a couple years of standing, my husband just called and said he is not sure about the divorce anymore. He said God had given him the family he always wanted, but he failed to realize it. He admitted it's been hard for him and that he was always trying to convince me that it was over between us. He has started seeing the pastor who married us to work on himself. Today someone gave me an expensive wedding dress and prophetic word. God has been faithful." (New York)
“Today was a day of many signs! God truly does speak to you if you open your eyes and ears to seek Him. This morning I woke up and saw a brochure for a donation organization titled ‘2014 Partnership Renewal.’ Shortly after I saw a shopping bag labeled ‘Expect Great Things.’ The last sign was the best. My prodigal is in the Army and I often wondered if God was working on His heart. I saw a truck with window stickers saying, 'Army Strong,’ ‘Know God, Know Peace,’ Romans 8:38, and all sorts of scriptures!! Although not my prodigal's truck, I am still trusting God for my ‘2014 Partnership Renewal!’ I am convinced! Praise Him!”  (Washington)  
"My prodigal filed for divorce. On the morning she left the papers in my truck for me to sign, I passed by a television at work. The show had a guest band on debuting their new album. It was the band that sang our wedding song and they were playing our song. I felt that it was God telling me, 'It's alright, I've got this, be still and wait'." (Texas)
“We caused ourselves a lot of debt not only through our marriage problems but also through bad spending habits. I kept praying over the bills and also read a few testimonies of God supernaturally paying off debt. We received a tax return this year that can only be explained by our Lord which was able to settle most of it, Then today I received a phone call stating that my grandma, who passed several years ago, left me as beneficiary on a small life insurance policy. Just enough to cover the rest of the debt! All glory goes to our Mighty God! Amen!”  (Illinois)
