In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed1 Peter 1 6:7 
“I found this ministry about a year ago. I am still separated; however, I know GOD has never given up on me or my marriage! He comes first in my life and I have a new profound love for him. This ministry has helped me grow, learn, develop and rely on God for marriage restoration. Each time I feel like doing the wrong thing, I read an email which I feel is meant just for me! God hears my prayers and His answers are given through this ministry. I know my situation may look grim to others but I know whose report to believe! My footsteps have already been chosen by God!” (Colorado) 
"We had a miraculous weekend. My husband showed up from out of town at 1 A.M. to surprise his mom for her college graduation. God is moving mightily. He said his goodbyes to the kids and we left for church. When we arrived at a family house after church, my husband was still in town. We got to see God's message in action. Praise God." (Texas)
"My prayer partner e-mailed me she had good news she wanted to share. Feeling in my heart it would be the news of her long prayed for pregnancy for her and her husband had been manifested, I began to praise the Lord. I cried and rejoiced and told the Lord if He was only going to deliver one of our miracles this Christmas, I was truly glad it was their baby and I could wait on my prodigal. This evening out of nowhere I received a text from my prodigal saying he was thinking about me. Praise the Lord for His goodness! God clearly showed me my prodigal's return is coming too!" (Texas)
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid.  Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.  The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Exodus 13:13-14 
"Now let us make a covenant before our God to send away all these women and their children, in accordance with the counsel of my lord and of those who fear the commands of our God." Ezra 10:3
“The daily devotionals I have been receiving have helped me focus on God while my husband was battling inner turmoil and his attraction to another woman. I learned how to love him unconditionally and stood by him in spite of it all. He has now recommitted to our marriage and has made the decision to love me. Praise the Lord!”  (California) 
"I am currently standing for my husband who has left and said that our marriage is over. As our anniversary approached, I wanted to send a card but wasn't sure if I should. I prayed to God for a sign and then began reading 'Prodigals Do Come home.' The encourager at the end of the chapter was to select a card for your spouse. What an awesome God we serve!"  (North Carolina)
“Praise the Lord. Alleluia! I really thank God and will keep praising Him and thanking Him always. He brought my husband back home to me all of a sudden and healed and saved my marriage. I surrender my entire life to God. Standers, continue to have firm faith in God and surrender yourself entirely to Him. He works the best miracles in His time.”  (India)
"In recent months I have overdrawn my account to cover a lot of items and have paid for it because of overdraft fees. With consistent prayer and trust in God, last month I did not overdraw. I waited on the Lord and He supplied all of my needs. This month my paycheck did not go to overdraft fees. God did it. He is faithful." (Georgia)
“I have been standing a long time after my divorce. I spoke to the pastor and he believes God would start the restoration process once my husband is saved. He recently reached out to me for the first time by phone instead of text. God is softening his heart. He let me know he gets lonely. He called for me to help him when his car broke down. He and I love music and he is adding the ability to do songs I can do. I know the most important thing is for his salvation. I need to give him unconditional love and pray for his salvation. First the miracle of salvation, then the restoration. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.”  (Illinois)
“Praise God, He is so faithful and merciful when I am not. I have not been praying and reading the Word as I should, but God. My marriage restoration is on its way and I asked for a rhema word as to what to do next. He gave me Psalm 96 - Proclaim his victory day after day! Declare his glory among the nations, his wonders among all peoples!  I am reminded to tell all what He has done for me. I am so blessed and so are you. Proclaim it!”  (Florida) 
"After two years of separation, my husband is moving home today. I praise God for this miracle and ask Him for continued blessing on my marriage." (Minnesota)
“After being gone many months, my husband began sleeping at the house...and then he never left. It took six weeks for me to realize he'd moved home! There was no conversation or apology, just a changed man. I had doubts and I wavered (a lot). Every morning I woke up and read the encouragement waiting for me on this site, and then I warily began my day in faith. One day at a time, the many, many months came to an end and in the midst of it all, Charlyne guided me. This woman I'd never met taught me to pray for my husband and how to find comfort in God's Word. This stranger supported me when others doubted me. My husband and I are packing for vacation. God is healing our marriage and restoring it to something more than we could have imagined. A year ago I was hurting so deeply that I couldn't even imagine a day when we would vacation again. Today my heart is full.”  (Oklahoma)
“My husband left some months ago. God led me to RMM shortly after. My husband has called me the last three days. Today, he called me to ask me to join him and his parents for dinner tomorrow night. He also reported that he was thinking hard whether he made the right decision. God gave me Luke 15:4-7 four times the other day. He is a miracle worker!”  (Arkansas) 

"Mother's Day began with breakfast in bed prepared by my daughter. I prayed to God that I would like to have my husband go to Mass with me. Twenty minutes later, the phone rang and my husband asked to go to Mass with me. He also took us to lunch. God does listen and answers prayer." (California)

“PTL, we serve an awesome God. My husband came home suddenly. He called and said that he was having problems with the OW and he admits he made a very big mistake by getting into a relationship. He confessed his faults and asked to come back to his family whom he missed deeply. Charlyne, you are so right; our miracles do come suddenly. One victory God fulfilled as He promised. Now I am praying for my husband's salvation that will be sure to come suddenly, too. Thank You God; You are faithful to Your promises.”  (Canada)

"I asked my Lord if my husband's plan to divorce will succeed. He took me to Proverbs 19:21: ’Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand.' I could not have asked for a better confirmation of my stand for the complete healing and restoration of my marriage." (Florida)
I prayed about my first meeting with the attorney and on my way to her office I saw a Covenant Transport truck! It's strange because I had never seen one downtown before...I know it's God working on the other side.”  (Texas) 

"Everything looked hopeless. Court proceedings were underway and complex. I hadn’t spoken to my wife for months. The day before we were again due in court, my wife came to my office and handed me a court notice of discontinuance. I was speechless. We spent Saturday at a Christian bookshop buying resources to rebuild our marriage. God is absolutely amazing." (Australia)

"How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people." Psalm 116:12-14
“Praising God! I have been a stander for many months. Recently, my five children and I were blessed with a vacation to Tennessee where my husband and I were married many years ago. At first, it proved painful to be there without him, but as the day went on, I began to notice God showing me things, pointing out places to me, until finally we drove past the little log chapel where we took our sacred vows. It is no longer in use, HOWEVER, it is standing, a bit weathered, but firm and steady. God's message to me, ‘It has endured life's storms, and so will you and your beloved.’ Wow, God is so amazing. He has spoken and it WILL BE DONE. Amen.”  (Indiana)
Join the many standers and prayer warriors who pray for all the court dates on our Court Pagepraying that they will be canceled. 
"I am so grateful for the Lord’s provision. He has been the best husband for me during this season of my life. He has provided for me supernaturally in many ways. I have some good prayer partners. I have a job I love in a Christian atmosphere, my children are prospering, and I have a healthy, beautiful granddaughter. I am truly blessed." (Nebraska)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
"I want to thank the Lord again for bringing my wife home when it was an impossible situation. We were almost divorced not long ago and she didn't love me. She now loves me more than ever, and it's because of how God moved in her heart." (Ohio)

"My beloved husband has asked me to move in with him in his new house. He said he has been happy with me these last few months since we started seeing each other. Praise The Lord." (Florida)

“It felt like all hope was draining out of my body and I did not know if God wanted me to continue to stand for the restoration of our marriage. I had read several testimonies about people seeing Covenant Transport trucks so I decided to research their location on the web. There were no locations in my area. So I had to believe that God would show me a sign. Tonight, at the end of the parking lot, sat a Covenant Transport Truck! I could not believe it! I took pictures and cried. It has been a hard journey, standing and believing when others are saying to let it go but when I saw this truck I began to cry and praise God for my journey because I know He is fighting for our marriage covenant. To all of you out there who feel like all hope is gone, keep pressing in for God is with you the entire way! Keep standing, praying and keep believing. Your miracle is on the way. I am praying for all marriages to be restored. In Jesus Name!”  (Georgia)
"I saw my prodigal for the first time in this new year because I had to take some mail to him. I prayed for God to show me the work He is doing on my prodigal's heart. By the grace of God's mercy, my prodigal admitted in our conversation that he misses me! We serve an awesome God!" (Kentucky)
"I have seen 'Fireproof' five times. I am making sure those I know who are in marital distress will see his movie, even if I must drive them there. Last week, the drive was 52 miles each way to take a person to the movie." (Texas)
"Almost a year after the divorce, we are still living in the same house. I forget how blessed I am by God with this situation. God is faithful." (New Jersey)
“This week marks a full year that my husband has been back home and the Lord transformed both of us and our marriage. My husband is now my best friend which is a brand new relationship for us after so many years of strife. Please standers, NEVER give up! Draw closer and closer to Christ and make Him first in your life and He will make your path straight. One day during my stand the Lord spoke to my heart and said, ‘Your husband may never come home, you could lose your job, your home and your family but you will NEVER lose Me!’”  (Canada)
"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
"My husband plans to divorce me. I assured him of my stand which made him angrier and more adamant about leaving. Right after this, I opened my Bible to Jeremiah 18. Praise the Lord, I felt God telling me He was about to move and to trust Him. The next day I found that another couple, our best friends, are fasting for my husband's salvation. I can't wait to see God move." (Florida)
"My husband started driving our car and gave me his old truck to drive. We still live together. I have prayed for months for the Lord to help me get transportation or to get my car back from my husband. Praise God, my husband bought a new truck and gave me the car back. Now I have decent transportation again." (Florida)
“Haven’t you read,”he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Matthew 19:4-6
“For our meeting with my wife's attorney to discuss separation, I decided on faith not to hire my own lawyer. I prayed to the Lord that ‘whatever happens, Your will be done.’ The child and spousal support she calculated was substantial, so I had to refinance my mortgage, cut expenses, etc. But I was determined to keep giving to the Lord, and in fact increase my offering. After all this, I put together a budget on my computer. When the spreadsheet calculated my savings, it came out the same as my monthly support payment! God truly provides for all our needs.” (California) 
“After almost two years of praying and standing, not giving up and keeping the faith, my husband has returned home. Please don’t give up on your spouses for any reason, I am a true witness. God Bless.”  (North Carolina)
"My husband had asked for a divorce. I have been praying and standing for my marriage restoration. Now my husband said he will not go ahead and instead he will cut off the other relationship. I thank God." (Zambia)
Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”  John 11:40 

“At the end of the summer my husband moved us into a home near his work. He had been gone for nearly three years before restoration. Though I was reluctant to leave the area where we lived for many years, God in his goodness has supplied much Christian fellowship and many friends in a short time. Restoration is happening all through our family between four generations. Miracles do happen and God is rebuilding our family on the Rock of Jesus Christ. Praise be to God! I hope this is of encouragement to others to know that God can restore a very large and diverse family. He does more than we can think or imagine.”  (Canada)

"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)
"God really spoke to me tonight. I was able to make it to Pompano Beach for Bible study. My spouse lives in the area and knew I would be in town. He said he might be able to see us if he got out early. During the study I prayed for God to show me something. My husband has filed for divorce. After the study my cell phone was dead. My husband had been trying to reach us. He drove up to my friend’s house. Thanks be to God." (Florida)
“I found this website at a low time in my marriage. God told me to go on a 30-day-fast. Before this time I was praying very fervently. Also when everything first happened I went to God and He said I would not get a divorce but my husband was pushing for one. Once I started to fast God started moving and quickly. I hadn't talk to my husband in months and on the last day of the fast 'my suddenly' came. My husband called and said he was ready to come home. To God be ALL the glory!!!”  (Texas) 
"I went to a service at the church where my prodigal grew up. The first thing out of the guest speaker's mouth was that God was telling him to pray for restored marriages. What a witness to the hundreds attending. Praise God." (Virginia)
“I have become very close to the Lord since my husband left some months ago. I have been a Christian all my life; grew up in church. I knew when my husband left, I was not living the way I was supposed to be living. Even though I have read many scriptures in the Bible, I had never read the Bible from front to back. I am hooked. The Lord has shown me many things through this reading. The Charlyne Cares devotions have helped me so much especially this Monday’s. It truly uplifted because I had had a pretty bad weekend. The devil really knows how to get you, but praise the Lord, I am fighting him and I am still STANDING for my marriage. He does not have this marriage or my family, for God has promised me that my husband is returning home very soon. I am keeping the faith!” (Missouri)
“My husband has been ‘testing the water’ as Charlyne so aptly stated in her devotional several days ago. He has started coming home on long weekends and calling me every day to chat. This in itself is a miracle. I am praying for God to change my heart so when he comes home and ‘tests the waters’ he will find it to his liking. I know it is only a matter a time before the Lord brings him home. I especially loved the devotional 'The Fun Bus' (by Bob) because this is exactly where we are at!”  (Canada) 

"God is so good! My husband is coming home! I`ve followed RMM for almost four years . With a couple of setbacks, third time's a charm. After a few weeks of communication I pick him up from airport next week to come home. Although this is just the beginning God`s work isn't done. I's just begun!! (Michigan)

"My prodigal emailed me Christmas morning from Kuwait to wish me a Merry Christmas. I was excited and thanking God for this communication with my husband while he is overseas, when the phone rang, and it was my husband. God has amazed me so many times during this stand. Although the wait is difficult at times it is clearly worth it, as God continues to show me glimpses of the wonderful future He has for our marriage."  (Ohio)
"I received a sign from God like I had been asking for. It reaffirmed my faith that He will do this miracle for us. While the attacks on me come, I can stand firm because I saw a glimpse of God at work on my prodigal." (North Carolina)
