“After being separated from my husband and just recently learning about the OW around the time we were to celebrate our wedding anniversary, he informed that he was never coming home and I should move on with my life. I was devastated but here I stand. We hadn't spoken to each other for about a month but praise God! I received a call from my husband today and it was so uplifting. I will never give up on standing and fighting for my marriage. Glory be to God!”  (Missouri) 
"I had to leave my house as circumstances made it difficult to stay. For the last two months he didn't visit us. Last Thursday I was talking to a pastor and he prayed for him and all of a sudden he came to visit us and brought lots of gifts to our son. I was happy as I know the Lord has been working on his heart. I am not doubtful as I have faith that Jesus will change him and restore my family and marriage." (Maryland)
"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ." Ephesians 3:16-18
“After experiencing other relationships which did not flourish, finally, God lead me to stand for my covenant marriage for good. Some months ago, I found RMM and I was so thankful that I was not alone in my stance. After many years of divorce from my covenant husband who is remarried to OW and has children, my stand seems impossible but my faith tells me God will restore my marriage. To God be the glory.”  (Philippines)
“PTL!! God is GOOD! I've been praying God would make a way where there seemed to be no way and he is! My husband petitioned the court for a court date late October, 2011 but the court was pushed back to late February. My husband tells me he has NO peace and knows he should be at home with our daughter and I. I'm standing on God’s Word and trusting that my suddenly is right around the corner! My husband is returning to the Lord and to his family in the mighty name of Jesus! Standers just keep believing and praying God's Word over your spouse...it just doesn’t matter what it looks like. God is in control and will get the glory for turning it all around.”  (California) 
"I prayed for God to show me what a 'rhema word' is as I really didn't understand. A few days later my prodigal saw that my tire was flat. I thanked God that it happened in a parking lot and my prodigal called AAA. While the man was fixing my tire, I noticed his name was 'Jesus.' I was touched and told my prodigal how good Jesus was to save me. Jesus' message was that in times of trouble, my prodigal would still be there and that Jesus will always save and protect us. I praise the Lord." (California)

"After a year my husband came home. At the beginning of my stand God spoke to me and said 'You will never be divorced.' He is true to His Word." (Ohio)

"My husband and I have been divorced for a few years. A month ago he called me out of the blue and wanted to see his son. He is working on his addiction. I see changes and he wants his family back, and we are working on getting back together. I prayed for God to send the husband he has for me, but I never expected this. I believe God is in the midst of this and with Him all things are possible." (Illinois)

“My husband and I have been separated for some months. We have had several false starts and he was home only for a short season. I found RMM and gave my life to God again. Things looked very hopeless, but God! My husband started to slowly come around. I am waiting for God to show me the miracle He has in store for my marriage. God has told me that the seasons of my life are over and now my life will have permanence. PTL! God is great! All the glory to God! I will continue to pray for my marriage and for all the standers out there. I know it is hard, but don’t give up!”  (Florida)
“Our God is a faithful God. Though my ‘suddenly’ is not here yet, God has opened door after door since separation. From job openings to getting a new apartment and most of all finding Rejoice Ministry. He is working as we pray. Do not give up standers!” (Kansas)
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13
“On Sunday, my husband came to visit me. We went together to the grave of our daughter. On the way back to the car, suddenly my husband took me in his arms. He had never done this since we separated. We made a trip to the countryside. On the way he told me that he wants to make it financially better for me. At dinner he told me that it is so good that we treat each other with such respect. But he believes that it was due to the distance between us. I said that I believe that I never would have woken up when this separation happened, but now it's not because of the distance.”  (Germany)
“I have been so discouraged recently. My husband and I have been separated for a couple of years and he is moving to another state for medical residency. I have been crying out to God for answers, and I know that He hears and answers. EveryCharlyne Cares last week spoke personally to me and helped answer some of the questions I have been asking God. Thank you RMM for listening to God's leading. You have blessed us all so much. I will never give up standing. Even with all the circumstances, I know my miracle is coming soon, and I know others miracles are coming soon too! Keep praying!” (Washington)
“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) 
“I am confessing that my covenant marriage is restored! God made me a promise and I believe in His Word. He is not a God that He should lie. After some years of separation and  months after the divorce, my husband said he loved me too! Praise God! It is not by anything I have done or said, my Lord gets all the GLORY! We are attending a family wedding in the near future, as a family. I am in awe of the unconditional love that He has for me and my family. Forgiveness was hindering my prayers and now I have a testimony that God does heal. Blessed is she who has BELIEVED that what the Lord has told her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45.”  (Pennsylvania) 
“Today I asked God to show me or tell me if standing is still my purpose and is what I should be doing. On the way to work I turned on the radio and the sermon was about a couple and the wife was praying to restore her marriage. Of all times for this to be on the radio and about that subject. I thanked God as I started to cry because I knew that was only, BUT GOD! The preacher told the woman that she should pray and ask God for help. I knew this was my answer to my question and prayer. God was telling me to stand and continue on and we will be restored. I will never give up. God is so good. He knows when I need something to show me and gives me hope.” (Missouri) 
“I have surrendered my life, my spouse and my marriage to the Lord. Only He can heal and restore; I already know what I can do. I have been consistently praying and seeking God. Lately I prayed that my husband would come home immediately, if it's time. Just a few days ago my husband texted that he lost his job and was on his way home. He is on his way! I KNOW that complete restoration is on the way. All praise and glory to the Lord!”  (Oregon) 
"I thank God for bringing me to you. I am able to have a closer walk with God. At one point I gave up on marriage restoration but I am back on track. I give the Lord thanks and praise for He is faithful to His promises. While talking to my husband about a situation I told him I was discouraged and he reminded me that we need to pray about the situation. I just praise God for all that He is doing in our lives." (New York)
“I have a few great mothers that I would like to honor on Mother's Day. First, my natural mom who brought us to the Lord 31 years ago. She's an amazing woman of God, and I'm grateful she was not afraid of man when she followed Christ. The other two women are my spiritual moms. They have taught me so much over the past year, since my stand for my marriage. They have taught me how to pray, how to praise and how to know who I am in Christ. They have prayed for me and with me and given me much godly advice. I'm forever grateful for the wonderful moms God has placed in my life. My prayer is that my children feel the same way about me one day in every aspect. God bless all of the moms out there. I know that our Heavenly Father and Husband will spoil us in every way imaginable.”  (Canada)
“I live in New Jersey, so I miss out on seeing the Covenant Transport trucks seen by so many standers. But this morning, I passed a truck with the logo ‘PRAY Trucking!’ I thanked God for making me smile with that reminder to PRAY!”  (New Jersey) 
"I just want to give God praise and honor for standing with me. I don't know why, but he has kept His hand upon my family, including my prodigal, and through our years of separation. The peace that surpasses all understanding has been mine since He stopped the divorce last summer and I give Him all the Glory!! Times of struggle have come, but God is so faithful and restores me every time. For anyone thinking of giving up, go to God and let Him fill you afresh with His Spirit. And trust in Him with all your heart." (New Jersey)
“My husband recently said he is not going to pursue divorce papers which he filed twice (and I ignored). He has even spent two nights with me in the last two weeks. He has been calling a couple times a day for months. His heart is softening and gradually opening to me. He now shares daily what he does and where he goes. After years of separation, it is obvious he trusts me and is moving closer to reconciliation. Standers, zip your lips and pray continually. Go to the Word when you falter, not your friends. We are the light our prodigals seek for peace and for the path to God in their lives. They want to see our example of consistency and quiet faith. It is when I totally took my eyes off the circumstances and concentrated on God that things started to really change. Thank You, Lord.”  (Texas)  
"Thank you for the benefit (of) you sharing your heart with me during the last few years. As a family, we are all growing closer and we will be greatly strengthened because of this trial. There are great things for all of us because of your faithfulness. (Husband) does not fully understand the depth of your obedience just yet. He will not be prepared for the many blessings that await him when he comes home. This is uncharted territory for all of us, but I wouldn't miss this adventure for anything. God is establishing (husband's) home, and now he is coming home."
“I am divorced and after months of separation I prayed for a sign that God is working on the other side of the mountain. The very next day I was able to eat dinner with my beloved and my children. It was the first time we have all sat down for dinner together since this started. My beloved was not very talkative but I thank God that He softened her enough to even be there. The kids loved it and we had a wonderful time. Praise Jesus! He is always working, even though I don't always see it.”  (Alabama) 
“I must praise God and thank Him for His faithfulness and compassion. He always says what I need to hear. I awoke on my birthday very sad and discouraged. I pleaded with God to take away the pain and give me a tangible sign that He is removing my mountain. I heard: ‘I have given you a sign - Jesus.’ God proved His faithfulness by sending Jesus. God proved His love by dying for us. God proved His power by raising Jesus from the dead. God has to remind me often of this, because I do doubt. But then He does something that makes me ask, ‘Why do I doubt?’ As I was very sad, believing my husband would not acknowledge my birthday, I got a text from him: ‘Happy Birthday!’ Thank You, Lord.”  (Arkansas) 
Then Jesus said,“Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”  John 11:40

“My daughter and I went on a trip to visit my parents and we had decided to go on a mini-vacation. As we were driving, I thought about asking God to see a Covenant Transporttruck if He was still working on my marriage. But then I thought, God has given me my promises and I need to just stand on those and not test Him. As we were exiting to go to our hotel, I looked back and on the highway a Covenant Transport truck passed! How funny and loving our God is to allow me to see one even though I never actually asked Him for it! I was in a completely different state and we were in a little town that I never would have expected to see one! God is good and He hears us even when it's not in prayer! Thank You Papa!”  (California) 
"Today is my wedding anniversary. One year ago on our anniversary, our divorce was final on paper. My husband and I talk often. He texted me today asking if I was okay. I was able to tell him that I am well, the Lord is with me and I am still praying for our marriage to be restored. Praise God my faith is in God alone that He can and will restore our marriage." (Arizona)
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21 
"My prodigal spouse is slated for a very risky surgery and I have been praying for his salvation. A hearing took place this week for the attorneys and the judge. They decided that divorce proceedings should be postponed until after the surgery so it was delayed for 90 days. God is so good. My husband called to say that he was delaying the divorce. He did not know it had already been postponed." (California)
"December 4 was 'D Day' for me. All my prayers were answered. My prodigal husband just showed up and rang the doorbell and asked if he could return home. He was living in the far country and things were not working. My husband, who does not enjoy reading, is reading Bob’s “Prodigals Do Come Home” and has told me three times how much he is enjoying it and absorbing the material. Thanks for the wonderful email that help guide my footsteps. Praise to God who granted this miracle." (Louisiana)
“Last year at this time, my husband and I were barely speaking. Today he has been home almost 10 months… And we were blessed with our first grandchild. To have our family intact for such an incredible event has my heart overflowing. I am so thankful for all God has done for my family. Don’t give up. I will see the goodness of my Lord in the land of the living. God bless you all.” (Illinois)
“After three long years of separation, God restored our marriage, but my husband was still not interested in the Lord. In March, God did a work in my husband’s life. Praise the Lord, my husband is now taking over his godly role as head of our home by God's grace. The Lord is still working on me, too! God is restoring our relationship as we come together before Him. Thank you so much for the support and devotionals during the dark times in my life. You helped give me the courage to trust in the Lord for an unbelievable miracle from His heart to ours.” (Canada)
“I have to praise the Lord for being so gracious. I had to travel home a couple weeks ago and not only did I see an abundant amount of Swift trucks but three Covenant Transport trucks. I praised the Lord all the way home. Also, when I was home, I was able to show my spouse love while bringing him some homemade soup because he was sick. He even asked me to come back over and watch a movie with him. I am thankful for spending time with him.”  (Illinois) 
“Praise The Lord! Court has been postponed for another week. Thank you Lord for letting me be married another week.” (Tennessee) 
“I just can’t thank my Heavenly Father enough; my prodigal husband is home!! We were separated for several months and God directed me to RMM. My faith and this website is what held me together. Please standers, never give up, just give it all to God. That is what He wants from us, to rely on Him. God hates divorce. Put your trust in your Heavenly Father. Praise the Lord!”  (Montana)
“I have been praying for the other person in my spouse's life to go back to her husband. Recently, I have prayed harder for her, her husband, their children and grandchildren to be reunited. Praying more for them than for us actually. Through a very strange series of events, I received word that she has gone back to her husband. Praise the Lord! It is so amazing how God works things out. There is no way in our limited personal resources that we can bring these things to pass. To God be the glory!”  (Arkansas) 
"My husband has been home for over a year. He had a child with the other woman. Before he was home I prayed to God about the promise He gave to Sarah and Abraham about a son. Soon after my husband's return I was pregnant. We now have a healthy baby boy. His birth has had a part in helping our marriage heal and grow. We also have the other child in our lives, which has also been a tremendous blessing to me. God is faithful." (Washington)
“I want to praise our Lord Jesus. I have been standing for many years. Through this there were women, separation, divorce and more. God has removed many women from my prodigal's life each time as I prayed. A few months ago a new woman entered my husband's life and I cried out to God, ‘Why?’ I prayed and asked God to help me let go. I know He is in control and works all things out for my good. I realize that there is still work to be done in me to refine me and only God can do that wonderful work. So I let go. I know it's a new territory for me but I rest assured that He will walk with me and hold my hands. I love You Lord! Praise be to Him! What a blessing that He loves me so much that He wants to change me more and more.” (Pennsylvania) 
"Right before I went to bed I realized I'd forgotten my ring at the gym. I called the next morning and they said nothing had been turned in, but I could come check. When I got there the janitor told me he'd checked every locker and it wasn't there, but I could check if I wanted. When I checked in the locker, it was right where I'd placed it the day before! The Lord showed me that He'd watched over it just like He is our marriage and that it doesn't matter what others say or think. He's in control! Glory to God!" (West Virginia)
"This Thanksgiving, I am waiting for my husband to come home from work, packed, because he has made reservations for us to get away for two nights, three days somewhere in Tahoe. We have not had a just us getaway in ever so long, and now that our marriage is restored, it's just a whole new set of blessings to be with my husband . Praise God again and again." (California)

“When I first found Rejoice Marriage Ministries, my husband had left. I prayed and fasted. It was a difficult time. But then "suddenly" my husband came home with conditions. I said OK and slowly the Lord began to change him and showed him the truth without me having to say or do anything. The Lord handled everything and in 2008 we came back to our original home. It is now 2012 and you can’t imagine how much the Lord has blessed us. My husband is the most wonderful man in the world and he is totally different from what he was. But I believe we would not be where we are today had we not gone through this trial. Please don’t lose heart in your stand. God will bring your prodigal home.” (Texas)

“My God is so awesome! My husband was moved out for some months and has been home for a few. He has told me over and over that he just doesn’t love me anymore. Just yesterday he told me to look for an apartment, that he was miserable and unhappy. But God! Last night he put his arms around me and told me he loves me. I felt peace for the first time in many months! Don't give up! God hears your prayers and He will answer suddenly! All glory to God!”  (Tennessee)
“After reading today's Charlyne Cares, God is prompting me to write. Proverbs 19:21 is one of the scriptures that I pray every morning and every night and sometimes in between too. It certainly applies to our marriage situation. God is in control and His plans for our marriage will succeed. Standers, when you are weary and feel like giving up please remember that nothing is impossible for God. It doesn't matter what your spouse’s plans are if they do not include God now because He is able to change your spouse’s heart and mind. My spouse thought our marriage was hopeless but now even he is seeing we have hope in God. God is perfecting both of us so our marriage is on the solid rock of Jesus. Do not give up, the battle will be worth it. Jesus is our prize.”  (Pennsylvania) 
"I was becoming discouraged about standing. I read Saturday Testimonies and how many had been asking for signs. I felt guilty for asking for another one. I was led to read Judges 6 and Isaiah 45:3. Suddenly, I realized the Holy Spirit was encouraging me and reminding me to pay attention to and look for another sign. A year ago, He gave me one scripture that leaped right off the page. On the same date, one year later I saw a double rainbow for the first time. I have no doubt that was my confirmation. God is faithful." (Maryland)
"Thank you Lord that in spite of separation you have placed it upon my prodigal's heart to provide for his family. I thank you for the blessing." (California)
"God is faithful! Two weeks after my spouse came back to God, he then came back to me. Repentance and restoration!  Don't give up; it's worth it all."  (Missouri)
“2011 was quite a difficult year but my God was faithful. There were many times during the year that I wondered how I was going to make it, but He came through for me at all times. Charlyne Cares always came as an encouragement and I would like to thank Charlyne and RMM for their devotion to standers. I believe 2012 will be a year of many ‘suddenlies.’ He is a good God.”  (Norway)
