“I prayed up until the day of our second hearing, prayed for the judge and for my husband's attorney. My husband appeared by speakerphone in the court. We could not see him but all faces in the courtroom that had been all business had become soft, eyes gazing at me when I explained that I loved my husband, did not want a divorce, am a Christian, believe marriage is meant to last a lifetime, that I have been asking my husband to come home for several years. Even my husband was silent on the phone, and his voice cracked when he tried to speak. I continue to pray for the Lord to soften his heart and that he will cancel the divorce. Satan is loosing his grip on my husband.”  (Wisconsin) (posted 12/2/2013)

 "I would like to give God the Glory for restoring my marriage. My husband has been home for many months. At one point, it looked like he was on his way out again, but God is faithful. When He gives us a promise, we can count on it. It has been a long and painful journey, but I would not have it any other way. The relationship I share with the Lord was worth it all. I know that there is still a lot of work to be done, but God is in control." (New Jersey)

"I thank the Lord my husband texted me to say happy birthday. It was an answer to prayer." (United Kingdom) (posted 2/5/2010)
"I want to thank you for your ministry. God led me to your site when I was losing hope and ready to give up on my marriage. I give Him all the glory. He brought my husband home last Friday. My husband told me he's very thankful that I didn't give up on him. Thank you for showing me that it's God's will to make a stand for my marriage covenant. God is so good. He remained faithful until He brought everything back to their righteous state." (California) (posted 11/20/2004)
“Many of my loved ones know that I am standing and agree with what I am doing, but are still hurt to see the way my husband is treating me. During my quiet time, I asked God if He was going to restore our marriage. Psalm 53 popped into my head. The first few verses seemed irrelevant, but I continued reading. Then I saw it, the very last verse; Verse 6. It says (NLT):Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel? When God restores His people, Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.’It says WHEN GOD RESTORES. He WILL restore. We are called to trust in His promises!”  (Florida)  (posted 2/12/2013)

“I am praising God today and every day. My husband and I were remarried Tuesday after five years of separation and divorce. Though my stand was very hard, God never let me give up even when I begged Him. I thank Him that He didn't allow it. Thank you also Bob and Charlyne for your support and prayers.” (Mississippi)

“My marriage is dying due to homosexuality. My husband is lost. I have been praying, fasting and waiting on my Father. We do not have Covenant Transport trucks but I see Imperial trucks.  I looked Imperial up and it means ‘belonging to a Kingdom,’ so I take comfort that they remind me I am a royal child of God. On a recent trip, I actually saw a Covenant Transport truck. When I looked it up, I found out that the company just opened in one of our cities. God is awesome. Thank you all of you. You keep me strong and positive.”  (South Africa) (posted 10/30/2014)
“My husband came home in December. Praise God. But he had not ended the other relationship yet.That person's husband has been saved through their divorce and she has started going to church with him. Sunday they went to a special service and she gave her life to the Lord! Thank You Jesus that You are working even when we can't see what's happening. Thank You Lord that You are not only restoring my marriage and family but You are restoring the OW’s also! Hallelujah!” (California)  (posted 2/16/2012)
“I just want to praise God for all the blessings. My husband has now been home over a year and has recently called his childhood pastor to remarry us. We have set a date in October. Our family has learned to put God first and not take the small things for granted. Standers, stay strong on the path you have been called to do. Your spouse is lost in the wilderness. My husband knew when I was interceding in prayer. The Holy Spirit speaks to them when we pray.” (Illinois) (posted 7/31/2014)
"My husband and I separated last year. All along he gave me the impression that our relationship was hopeless, but today he called me to say that he loves me. Praise the Lord for beginning to move the mountain of anger and soften his heart." (New York) (posted 7/2/2010)
"so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11 (posted 3/18/2011)
“I saw on my husband’s Facebook page that he said he was now single. Tears immediately began flowing down my face. Sometime later that night my husband texted me out of the blue, asked how I was, and then wanted to know, ‘After all I’ve done to you, why do you keep waiting?’ I reminded him God had told me to and I was going to obey. He thanked me, asked if he could call, and talked over an hour about how he misses his family and he’s been doing a lot of thinking. Whether he is simply testing the waters or whether my suddenly is coming, I am even more determined to let God remain in control. He has blessed and strengthened me so much, the very least I can do is keep being obedient. I am in awe!”  (Tennessee) (posted 11/3/2014)
“I know this is a little bit late with this praise testimony, but by the grace and mercy of God, I received a last minute invite to spend Christmas Day with my family. We opened presents and had Christmas breakfast. Praise the Lord!”  (North Carolina) (posted 2/17/2014)
"Praise God, my prodigal husband is going to church and spending more time with me. He confessed that he made a mistake by divorcing me and wants to come home. He also confessed his sins in our marriage. I give God all the glory and praise for this huge turnaround. I will never doubt the power of God. He is faithful to His promises." (Arizona) (posted 4/24/2009)

“A few months ago I was ready to give up on my marriage. The divorce hearings were proceeding and everything just seemed hopeless. I was directed to this site and I found out that I was not wrong in thinking that God did not want me to move on. I told my husband this and it didn't have an immediate effect. But I just knew that I could not give up. I submitted my court date in December, which was supposed to be my final one, and it was rescheduled to January. The last week of December my husband called me to come talk. Last week he moved back in and today he filed papers to cancel the divorce. Praise God! Although there's work to be done, I know without a doubt that we will make it.”  (Wisconsin)

"Standing for the restoration of my marriage has drawn me closer to the Lord than ever before. Before I was not consistent and was thinking of other relationships as an alternative. Now I am thanking God for not restoring my marriage by the deadline I was giving Him. I needed total transformation to be the wife that my husband deserves. (Colorado) (posted 8/8/2008)

“Praise God my marriage is restored. My husband texted me out of the blue, telling me he wants his family back, that he loves me very much and our children, and has learned to value me.”  (Nevada) 

(posted 2/12/2013)
God's Word has been such a healing presence in my life, with me, my family and my friends. As soon as I use God's Word I instantly feel God knows how I feel. I love His Word and it is more nourishing to me than food or drink. Thank you my Father in heaven.  (Texas) (posted 9/22/2014)
“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)  (posted 7/9/2013)

“To Our Lord and Savior Jesus be all praise and glory. After two and a half years, another marriage, many mistakes by me, and more hours crying out to God then I could ever recall, my wife and one flesh mate is home. I cannot begin to describe the process that brought us to this glorious time except to say God kept His Word. When my wife left and God told me to wait for her I didn’t know what to make of it. He told me He had given me one wife and the only one He would give me. He told me to wait for her and be faithful to my vows. Yes it was suddenly, but it was a reunion I will praise Him for forever. I was worried when that day came that I would still be hurt and angry. But God took just enough time to take all that away and build the love and complete forgiveness I would need to welcome her home without condition or reservation. Don’t give up, not ever. He is not slow to keep His promises; He takes just the right amount of time to make us ready and complete His work and not a day more.” (Alaska)    (posted 1/24/2012)

“Thank You almighty powerful Lord, My husband came home a month ago. We had been separated with not much contact. Through RMM, I learned about the spiritual battle we are in and how our spouses are not the enemy. My husband said that the Lord had been weighing on his mind. Praise the Lord! I am so blessed that the Lord continues to guide us through our spiritual journey of marriage restoration. I know that our battle with the enemy is not over, so please do not stop praying for your spouse's salvation and your marriage even after they come home. I forgave my husband, but I learned to forgive the OW and pray for her salvation also. We must be careful not to give a foothold to the enemy. Pray for the armor of God, a hedge of protection around your spouse and to send warrior angels to protect you and your spouse. I pray your miracles and restorations come soon.”  (Alabama)

“Praise God! My husband is home. Suddenly. He just up and left the OW. Don't give up. My situation looked hopeless. (Numbers 23:19) God told me my marriage would not end. I went before the judge in May and the divorce was granted. It looked hopeless and final. Praise God, I'm still married; my husband’s attorney never drew up the final paperwork. No papers even exist. My husband said he didn't love me and was never coming home. But my suddenly came. I am rejoicing and praising God. No matter how long it takes, God will do exactly what He said He will do. When God told Noah to build the ark he didn't tell his family or friends. When God tells you your marriage will be restored, believe Him, no matter what anyone says or what it looks like. It will come to pass.”  (Texas) (posted 12/10/2013)
“When my stand was just beginning, I received some nice dresses from my sister. One was a beautiful ivory one. When I tried it on, I pictured myself renewing my vows in it and prayed that would come to reality one day. My prodigal returned ten months ago, but I never told him of that prayer request. Monday he asked if I would like to renew our vows next month on our anniversary. He has already contacted our preacher & reserved the church for that day! We called our family and all are almost as excited as we are. 'All things are possible to him who believes.' All praise and glory belong to God.” (Texas) (posted 11/20/2004)
"My prodigal told me he was going away with a 'friend' from Monday to Wednesday night. I managed to zip the lips - a powerful lesson from RMM.  I prayed that God would intervene, bring him home early and cut short the trip. God brought my  prodigal home early. A powerful answer to prayer, and I'm so encouraged to keep standing."  (United Kingdom)

Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstoppedIsaiah 35:5  (posted 10/4/2011)
“After a period away from home (21days) fasting and praying for all marriages to be restored around the world, reading Charlyne Cares every day, I returned to the enemy’s response to my focused time with God. More trials and circumstances were waiting for me, but God. I was not concerned, but prepared as I had retreated into the arms of the Lord for 21 days and was filled with fresh anointing. God had taken my prayers to another level and prepared me. The Lord gave me clear signs that He remembers me, PTL ! He has not forgotten my prayers. He will not forget yours! Here is one of many signs that He is working. In 1973 a song called 'Welcome Home' became a number one hit. Since returning from my retreat, I keep hearing the song featured in a TV advertisement for home insurance. Insurance companies restore losses when a claim is made and found to be valid. God is our insurance and we have a valid claim. He WILL restore.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 2/17/2014)
"My husband, who has never gone to church in his life, has been going to church with the other woman Last night he called to ask if I would go to church with him. At the same time our daughter, whom he has not seen or spoken to in four years, was visiting with our new grandson. Praise God we all attended church, came back to the house for food, and they embraced and had kind words for each other...what a mighty God we serve! Never give up!"  (Rhode Island)  (posted 6/13/2011)
“Praise God from whom all blessings flow! My son and I moved home to the city we lived before I married my husband and the family apartment we got on campus is full of brand new carpeting, new bathtub, light fixtures, everything! We are so blessed because I have been following God's commands to stand for my marriage and to move to our hometown. Every little thing we need is provided with no effort on our part. Walking with the Lord is a true blessing! Praise my God! Thank you for your encouraging blog, Charlyne, and to all the people who post their testimonies and restorations. This is a truly special web site for support. I'm still standing!”  (Arizona)  (posted 4/23/2012)
"PTL! God´s so faithful! After two days of no communication with my husband as he was moving with his parents, he texted me to say they were in the new house already. He asked me to come over. I can´t express how grateful I am to God for allowing this softening in my husband's heart as one year ago he told me, very harshly, that I can't have anything to do with his parents'. I almost cried as their dog, which I haven't seen for two years, remembered me and jumped all over me. God had told me to be still these days and obedience resulted in all this. Keep believing and praying!” (Argentina) (posted 5/14/2014)
"I have been divorced for over a year. Since God led me here, I put my ring on and started to fast and pray. Her heart is getting soft. We talk every day on the phone. I will trust God for my complete healing and restored marriage." (Georgia) (posted 3/6/2009)
It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, "Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?" Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, "Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?" No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.  Deuteronomy 30:12-14

“God sent us a prodigal, though not mine. We were blessed to take in a homeless man from a foreign country, through our church. He has a terminal illness and the doctors sent him home to die. We have been praying for him, and God has begun healing him, for His Glory! While he was here, through a ‘suddenly,’ and God-incidence, his family found him after looking for 10 YEARS! We got to witness the reunion....we all cried so many tears of joy! His spouse and children are so happy to see him (through Skype). I have been worried that my spouse would not be broken from sin, or indifferent to the consequences. I have been worried because I haven't been sure I could trust God with my heart, or trust Him to know what realities I could or could not handle when my spouse came home. But witnessing this man's situation makes me know that I can trust God. This man has a ways to go before he can go home, but I am grateful to God for letting me see this wonderful prodigal beginning.”  (Washington) (posted 12/24/2013)
"It has been a long time since my husband moved out and divorced me. Yet, God has still kept his mail coming to our home and some of his belongings in our home! When I get discouraged and think nothing is happening, God gently reminds me that He can bring my husband home and sends another of my husband's letters to our home. God can restore this impossible situation." (Singapore) (posted 10/3/2009)
Our Lord moves mountains PTL. After a year and a half separation my prodigal is home. The devil led him astray to another woman and he hardened his heart and ears to the Lord. The Lord promises us that His Words do not return void. The Lord finds His lost sheep and while I let go and let God, always in prayer, God also found me and rebuilt me then opened my husband's ears and softened his heart and showed him the deception that Satan had blinded him with. Our God is an amazing God. Praise and Glory to Him, never give up. Allow God to move the mountain and fill your heart and your prodigal's heart because what He did for me He'll do for you. Amen."  (Florida) (posted 11/5/2012)
"But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done; in your name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your saints." Psalm 52:8-9 (posted 3/20/2009)
“PTL, God is so amazing! This long journey has been an emotional roller coaster but also a blessing. I learned to trust my heavenly Father and give Him everything. I wanted to give up countless time but God would always give me a sign every time I was down to never quit. I declare my marriage is healed! My husband was blessed with a job and we are moving into our new place soon. God is not done, He will finish what He started. Standers, remember that God will do just what He said He will do. Forgive and step out of the way and allow God to move. Stay in the Word for God is your refuge and shelter. God is going to send your prodigal spouse home soon. My husband’s salvation is coming swiftly. Thank You Jesus!”  (Florida) (posted 1/19/2015)
“Praise God my husband is home! When my husband left me I was devastated and lost. Everyone told me I needed to move on and I was crazy for holding on. Every Saturday I would read the testimonies and I would pray that one day I would be able to write one myself. You have to believe, have faith, and trust God, He holds true to His Word. Everything Bob says about what the prodigal is thinking is true. My husband is happy to be home and has wanted to come home, but was scared and ashamed. We are now expecting our second child and we couldn't be happier. He even told me that every time I told him I refused to let go he would smile inside, even though he said I needed to move on and it was pointless to hold on. Please, never give up. Galatians 6:9. You will all be in my prayers.” (Florida) (posted 4/7/2014)
"Although my husband and I see each other in church every week, we have not had communication since the divorce was finalized. After an inspiring message during this past midweek service I felt lead to reach out to him and see if he wanted to meet to talk over some things. Although he declined the invitation, I am encouraged because God has given me a glimpse of how He is dealing with my husband's heart and I'm happy I obeyed." (North Carolina) (posted 11/27/2009)
"But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don't be afraid. I will provide for you and your children..." Genesis 50:19-21 (posted 5/22/2009)
"Thank you Lord. I was in deep sadness most of the week and cried out 'Please show me a sign that you are moving on the other side.' This past weekend my husband came to visit our kids. We talked for a bit then I put the kids in his truck. He called me back into the house and embraced me and told me he loved me. He also said he thought I was beautiful that day. I told him he should be proud because he was a good husband. This morning I asked God to speak to me. I grabbed my Bible and it was on the parable of the prodigal son. God is working."  (Florida)

"God has restored my marriage. After no communication, my wife called to tell me she had made me a birthday cake. She was also going to cook dinner for me. She accidentally set her kitchen on fire and asked if she could come and stay with me for a few days. Days turned into weeks. She said she loves me and wanted to start over again. The Lord has totally restored her love for me. I am still in a state of shock. I praise the Lord." (Ohio) (posted 10/3/2008)
"Even though we are divorced, my husband still contacts me and visits. Yesterday was our anniversary. I prayed that he would think about the fact that it was our anniversary. I was surprised when he called me late in the evening and came by to visit. He didn't mention our anniversary, but I'm sure he knew. Praise God for doing more than I could ask." (Nebraska) (posted 6/4/2010)
“My prodigal husband came and spent some time with me at home a few months ago and then I did not hear from him. I prayed to God and decided to be silent for a very long spell. This time around he has not removed personal effects that he brought with him. It is frustrating but I am being thankful to God and trusting Him that His promises will be delivered soon. Keep standing everyone and keep trusting God. He is not a man that he should lie. He will do what He said He would do.” (Jamaica)  (posted 5/27/2013)
"My friend introduced me to your website. I asked God questions and wrote them down along with the answers like your tape said and kept the faith that the answers were from God. My husband came home as God told me he would and exactly the month God told me he would. My faith is stronger than ever." (Connecticut) (posted 2/24/2006)
"It's been months since my husband came home and recommitted his life back to our marriage and back to our Lord Jesus Christ. Our marriage not only survived, but has flourished and is better than ever. Our son sees the changes and teases us because we are more affectionate and closer than ever. My husband still thanks me for not giving up on him and for loving him unconditionally. Our God does move mountains." (Idaho) (posted 9/26/2008)
“Praise God! After standing for many years, the Lord has suddenly ended the relationship with the OW. I live with my in-laws, his parents. Tonight, on Resurrection Eve, she broke it off, and we are under the same roof. He is not happy or speaking yet to me, but he will. Tonight I am covering him in prayer, and believing that this will be the beginning of our restoration. Never, ever give up. God will honor each promise He has made to you. Continue to stand on His Word, and speak out His promises. His Word will not come back void to you or your marriage.”  (Tennessee)  (posted 4/10/2013)
“My husband and I are getting along better than ever and even doing things together. Two weeks ago he spent his first night at our house this year. God had given me the scripture, 'Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!' (Luke 1:45) and I believe this is His confirmation to me that He is continuing to work for His glory. Praise Him.” (North Dakota) (posted 1/28/2005)
“We considered ourselves ‘Christians’ but didn’t invite God into our marriage. We claimed to know God but by our actions we denied Him (Titus 1:16). My husband was unhappy for a while in our marriage, completely hardened his heart, and wanted a divorce. I hit rock bottom and ran back to the shelter I knew I always had in Christ. God led me to RMM and immediately told me to stand for the restoration of my marriage. RMM was a lighthouse in my darkest hour, showing me that the Word was a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path(Psalm 119:105). I’ve come to know God like I’ve never known Him in my life. All God required of me was to trust and believe, take my hands off the situation and get out of His way. I surrendered all to God’s perfect will– my life, my husband, and my family. Then God touched my husband, telling him to cancel the divorce! God is rebuilding our marriage His way. Standers, God has the final say (1 John 5:14). The impossible is God’s opportunity to work a miracle.”  (Illinois)  (posted 7/30/2012)
“I want to share that while standing for many, many years, after being divorced, having seen a non-covenant marriage and children, my husband has been separated for a couple of years now. I am still standing and trusting God for restoration of our marriage. There have been many things happening during this time. For a while now, we have been living under the same roof taking care of his mother who had a fall and needs our assistance. We spend evenings together, talking, watching TV, eating, helping with his children when they come for a visit. We have come a long way from no communication to him sharing what he is doing. We still do not talk about us or what happened, but I know God is in this and working to restore our marriage. I enjoy this time together and I think that he does also. I thank God for all that He has done.” (Virginia) (posted 3/10/2014)
