“God was swift in strengthening me spiritually. My daughter and I were at a restaurant. In walked a man who was a truck driver, just stopping for lunch, and took a seat not far from where we were. He said hi and out of the clear blue he began to tell us all the Lord has done in his marriage. He said, ‘Don't give up on your husband. God has heard your prayers.’ He talked about how the devil is after marriages and the family, but reminded us how prayer and the Word of God is so powerful against Satan. He went on to testify about the marriage restoration between his mom and dad, too. By this time my daughter’s and my eyes were filled with tears, we knew the Lord sent that man. He said his mother never gave up, prayed for years and when the kids would question her stand, she'd tell them, ‘Your daddy's coming home.’ After several years standing and praying, her covenant husband divorced the other woman, and re-married his covenant wife.”  (Alabama) (posted 10/21/2013)
“My beloved husband left me when I was seven months pregnant. He only communicated on rare occasions but out of the blue he show up at my office with lunch. I prayed for one kiss and my Lord gave me that and more. He told me that he loves me and misses me. The next day he gave me a Christmas present. I have not heard from him since that day but I believe in my Father’s promises and I will wait for His perfect time. My family is under attack from the enemy but I have the King of Impossible with me. God will restore my marriage and will give my little girl the father that He choose. Keep praying standers, our miracle is on the way” (Guatemala) (posted 1/12/2015)
"Last year my husband told me that he had fallen out of love with me and he wanted to be with someone else. This angered and hurt me in a way that I have never known pain but it has strengthened my relationship with God. My husband is now pursuing reconciliation with God, and with me. I am truly thankful for God's guidance and mercy in both our lives. I am so happy that we are both rejoicing about celebrating our union on our three year anniversary."  (Georgia)

"For your Maker is your husband - the LORD Almighty is his name - the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth." Isaiah 54:5 (posted 3/18/2011)

 "My husband had an affair. For months I fought in my own strength and rules, eventually landing in the hospital. My husband asked for a separation. The situation appeared hopeless. It went from bad to worse. But the Lord has restored our marriage, gave us a fresh start, renewed love and renewed marriage vows. I thank the Lord for the grace He gave me to not give up. My faith, the size of a mustard seed, was enough for Him to move mountains. All Glory to our Mighty Heavenly Father." (South Africa)

“I have not had any communication with my husband's side of the family since our separation. This has been over a year and a half ago. His sister contacted me online this week but I have not responded as yet. I am going to pray on it before I accept her on my social network page. The Lord says when our ways pleases him he will make our enemies be at peace with us.”  (New York)

"My prodigal has returned to me. This situation will be used for the Glory of His Name. My prodigal has asked for my forgiveness and wants us to begin anew. He wants God in his life and that is what we are praying for. To God be the Glory, He is so faithful." (South Africa)  (posted 8/15/2008)
"I am grateful and thankful to the Lord for allowing me the opportunity to be a witness of His faithfulness. There been so many things that God has done. I just want to share a few. It is going on three years that my husband has been back in my life. He has been to church with me and he is helping me with my college courses. We have spent some time together and are in business together which God is blessing. I still believe that we will legally be remarried in God’s time and all glory will go to God.”  (Ohio) (posted 12/26/2011)
“Easter praise! My husband has been gone for many years and living with the OW. I pray every day for him, sometimes more than once. For the FIRST TIME EVER he sent an Easter care package to my son filled with goodies and nothing for me. There was a note folded in half wishing my son a Happy Easter. After a few hours the Lord reminded me, no, it's a trap, don't be mad, just pray for him. So I did. I thanked the Lord for the package. We came home from church and I decided to look at the note again only this time I opened it ALL the way up, and there at the very bottom was my Happy Easter wish! God is so good. Be faithful and keep praying. God will change their hearts in His time. Stand strong! Never give up!”  (Arizona)  (posted 4/10/2013)
“One day I was down and prayed to God about giving up. That same night I prayed, my friend call me while I was reading the Bible. The phone started to ring with my wedding song, not the usual song I have as a ringer. There is no way to accidently touch that phone and it changed that ringer. My wedding song meant everything to me. God gave me a sign not to give up. Now when I am down I think of God playing that song. Never give up.”  (West Virginia)  (posted 3/18/2013)
“My husband divorced me and quickly remarried. It has only been a little over a year. He wrote this: ‘I feel regret and guilt for being stubborn and disobedient to God, when I had no valid reason to seek a divorce. I played the fool and am now reaping the consequences of my actions. I ask for your forgiveness for the evil that I did to you for committing adultery and not being the husband that God wanted me to be to you." Let me say, God is working and I do expect a miracle, that this wounded soul will return to his family.” (California)   (posted 4/1/2014)
“Thank You Lord, my husband came over yesterday to show me the papers he received from the courthouse. They yet again rejected his filing. This has been the third time. I have not even seen the inside of the courtroom, PTL. My husband then proceeded to tell me he is no longer going to pursue it, that he does not want the divorce.”  (California)  (posted 4/1/2013)
“I saw my husband with the OW and the situation turned very bad. took control of the situation and forgot to give it to God. I let my anger take control. I thank God though that he led me to church and the priest spoke about a Christ- like character and how part of a Christ-like character is obedience. He elaborated about obedience in marriage and not giving up on marriage and obeying God. Its seems impossible after what happened BUT with GOD all things are possible. Standing strong. It takes reading the testimonies to take one back to how mighty our God is and how many prayers He keeps answering. Let’s not allow the devil to deceive us, but keep praying and standing.” (South Africa) (posted 9/11/2014)
“I would like to say thank You dear Lord and Savior. I live in Canada, and we do not have Covenant Transport trucks here, but this past weekend I took a trip, asking God for a request to see a Covenant Transport truck. As I looked across the road ,there it was. I was in shock, never expecting to see one. I went on the ferry and I just happened to look at a license plate, ‘IN GOD WE TRUST.’ Thank You Lord for this amazing confirmation.”  (Canada)  (posted 5/26/2012)
"My husband and I have not spoken since he moved out. We saw each other while driving and have now been talking. This was my confirmation that the Lord really does hear my prayers and that He is moving in my marriage." (Indiana) (posted 1/10/2011)
"Praise the Lord Jesus. I recently answered my Masters' level exams, and had no hope in passing because I had already failed the assignment part of the module. The devil attacked me constantly during my study period by putting negative thoughts in my mind and by using my husband to distract me by saying that he has decided to go with the other woman. I prayed to Jesus. I told the Lord that I was putting my exams in His hands. Jesus gave me a miracle. I not only passed in that module, but actually got a first class mark. I know He will also restore my marriage." (United Kingdom) (posted 7/23/2010)
“I love my husband dearly but haven't been the best at displaying it. The Lord instructed me to get back together with my husband. There's been a great deal of pushing/pulling between us. I was dealt with and now have an unfailing love for my hubby. One morning I telephoned him to work out details on the exchange of our child and he agreed to meet me! This after him going out of his way to avoid talking to or seeing me. During our meet he complimented my appearance and we even exchanged an embrace. This is no small miracle, this is huge! I praise God because everything He said He was doing, He has already started...I stand with expectancy!”  (North Carolina)  (posted 8/13/2012)
“My husband has been away for years. Lately I've been discouraged and longing for his salvation and return more than ever. It feels impossible for God to reach him. I stumbled across the movie ‘Amazing Love’ on Netflix. I had not known about it before and decided to watch it. Wow! A powerful visual of God's heart for His people through His prophet Hosea. Watching it played out in the movie gave me renewed steadfastness in my love for my husband. I highly recommend watching this. Then go back and re-read Hosea. I'll be praying for each of you who do this, that God will speak to you as strongly as He spoke to me. May your resolve be strengthened my fellow standers. God will do what He promises for us and our beloved prodigals!” (Florida) (posted 4/7/2014)
“I just want to praise God. Friday, I was supposed to have a meeting with my lawyer and it did not happen. This is now three times that this has happened. Also, my court date which was supposed to be the following Wednesday, was not going to happen. So Praise to God I am not going to be divorced before Christmas. I had a pretty rough weekend with my husband and I believe it was the devil trying to prevent me from praising God, but I am going to praise God anyway! Keep standing even through the good times and bad!”  (Missouri) (posted 12/22/2014)

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.  Psalm 107:15-16  (posted 12/12/2011)
O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.  Isaiah 25:1  (posted 7/11/2012)
“Valentine’s Day: God gave me Psalm 16:5-7 (TLB). Starting at 5 a.m., my car wipers quit, I found freezing pipes had split in the ceiling of a rental that provides my income, and later that night, my car's timing belt broke, stranding me. I never call my prodigal husband, but my circumstances were so overwhelming that I called him for help. As he declined to help, God gave me grace to tell him I love him and happy Valentine’s Day (I'd also dropped off a card and gift the night before). God provided a repairman. God counseled me through the day, gave me wisdom, guided me, and all got fixed! That night, when my car broke, God gave me 'wisdom in the night' and told me what to do - I was not to call anyone but my husband on Valentine’s. He told me who I could call in the morning. My husband did not answer, so I stayed in my car. God had provided a pillow and blanket! In obedience I zipped my lips, and allowed Him to work in His way.”  (Washington) (posted 2/26/2014)
“PTL. God spoke to me this very night. I went to church to pray for my in-house prodigal and God put this on a prayer: ‘take their hearts of stone and give them hearts of flesh,’ just as I learned from RMM. And later a scripture came to me: Luke 10: 41-42. ‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.’ I am Martha, worrying about the circumstances and God telling me the only thing that matters is to remain in His Word and pray! Thank You Lord for letting me hear You! To God be the glory!”  (Costa Rica)  (posted 6/25/2013)
“Praise God, a month ago the Holy Spirit led my husband home. It happened when I least expected it. My husband apologized for the wrong he had done yet still didn't understand how I could forgive him. I told him only by the grace of God, trusting and believing in His Word was I able to learn how to forgive him. I thank God every day for restoring my marriage. I want to encourage others to never give up on your prodigal. God is faithful if you just believe. Thank you RMM for everything, especially Charlyne and Bob, for being such an inspiration to me. Glory be to God!”  (Missouri)  (posted 8/13/2012)
“PTL! I had been fasting and praying, walking in love and forgiveness. My husband called me today to work things out. He even gave me his cell phone number. He told me he’s been praying for me each night. He fired his attorney — another delay! He’s having his Damascus Road experience and I’m believing this is the Lord working on our/his behalf. I’m believing for a SUDDENLY and continuing to fast and pray, stepping out in faith, being obedient to the Lord in all He asks. The Lord has been faithful, and these past 12 months have been the most difficult with my best friend and twin sister passing away, this terrible separation and the loss of my son in a motorcycle accident. Abba Father has been faithful and has put a healing balm on my heart. I have joy and peace and am so grateful to the Lord. Abba, you are the best Dad ever! Even in this, I will praise You, and trust You!”  (California) (posted 10/30/2014)
“Praise the Lord. All things are possible in the name of Jesus. He hears our cries and knows what we need. The Holy Spirit woke me up early one morning and impressed upon my heart that I need to sow the seed with my prodigal that I am praying for us. We’ve been separated for a few years, because I foolishly left, regretted it, but he wouldn’t forgive me. I prayed, then called him. We spoke for an hour. Thank You Jesus. He reiterated that he has moved on but he shared that he wanted to call me the week before and questioned what it would mean, wanted to go to lunch but felt it would be emotionally confusing, and a few weeks before was trying to wrap his head around what happened. What a blessing to hear how much he is thinking about us. I know our reconciliation will be soon.”  (Canada) (posted 3/30/2015)
"I have heard Charlyne say many times, 'God will be your spouse in this season,' but I never understood what it meant. This past Christmas God revealed that He indeed has been my husband, doing all the things my spouse would be doing if he were here. That was a big moment for me and allowed me to trust Him even more." (Georgia) (posted 1/29/2010)
“Lately I’ve felt drained and barely able to pray. Tonight I felt drawn to open my late mother’s Bible in which she had written many sermon notes. It opened to the book of Ruth. Tears flowed as I read her notes: ‘The book of Ruth is all about the Lord’s complex plan to get the right lineage for Jesus. He sent Naomi to Moab, let her childless sons marry and die there so that Ruth would return to Bethlehem to marry Boaz. A picture of the complex way God works out His plans for us even when we think everything is going wrong and will never heal. He REVEALS a plan to us and then He REVERSES it. It’s in this time that He burns out the dross and teaches us the right way. It sure is a painful but necessary time and when we can seem to bear no more, He RESTORES it all far better than it was before (like Job). He had a plan for Ruth’s life and Naomi’s too. He reversed it all and then restored it.’ The Lord had Mum write those words many years ago because He knew I would need them today. Thank You, Lord.”  (New Zealand)   (posted 7/15/2013)
"The Lord blessed our marriage with the return of my wife five years ago. I want to encourage each of you to never give up even when things seem dark. Some of my best growing as a believer is in those times when all I had to cling to was God and His promises. When doubts arise seek prayer and God's Word. God's timing is always perfect, right now you have a great opportunity to grow in your walk, to build your faith. After five years my heart still rejoices when I read the restoration of marriages. You are being prepared for something greater." (Florida) (posted 1/10/2011)
“My beloved started to come every weekend around Thanksgiving. He has backed away again but I know he is not as happy as he tries to convince everyone that he is. He still calls our daughter often and the last weekend he was here, he helped me recover from a hospital stay. The Lord is working behind the mountain! The Lord has blessed me with finances and I was able to help several other families for the holidays with finances and meals.”  (Florida)  (posted 1/14/2013)

“My wife and I were divorced. But only months later she began to come and see me and tell me she was sorry and she loved me. She got pregnant with the other man and pulled away for a time, but several months later she came home. A year after she left she suddenly came home a new person in Christ. We were remarried this year and just had a little baby boy whom I adopted. God has blessed us more than we deserve. Our marriage is so much better and more wonderful than words can express.”  (Maryland)

“God is an awesome God! I thank the Lord for this miracle as he brought my husband home, out of the far country. My husband was gone for months, and it seemed like all hope was lost, but then God connected me to RMM, and my life has changed. I began my stand, and even though it was not easy, God never left or forsook me during this time. I knew that the enemy wanted to destroy my marriage, but my mighty God said, ‘Not so, I will do a new work,’ and that is exactly what He has done.”  (North Carolina)

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6 (posted 4/23/2012)
“Praise to our Lord Jesus Christ. Yesterday after a few months of separation my husband allowed me to hold his hands in prayer before a conversation that he wanted to have with me. I praise God that this is just the beginning stage of God softening my husband’s heart. He continues to ask for a divorce but I believe that God is working out our healing and restoration in Jesus’ Name.” (Indiana)  (posted 11/19/2012)
“I'd been struggling without a job, supported by my parents who are already in debt. Conversations with my spouse were terribly strained due to finances. BUT GOD! God asked a friend at church to forward a government job application to me while my spouse and I were living in his far country during a brief reconciliation. I got appointed and the Lord’s hand was on each step of it! Great pay, good timing, a daycare for the baby. Jesus turned me from a burden to a blessing for my parents! The Lord has been softening my prodigal's heart. He may come to meet the baby this month. I’m so humbled and thankful. My Potter is shaping me and my life. Thank You Jesus!”  (India)  (posted 12/17/2012)

"I stepped out on faith and asked my husband if we could pray together when he picks up and drops off the kids. We are divorced. He said yes, and we have now prayed together two times. We plan to continue to pray. Praise God." (North Carolina)

“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)  (posted 10/23/2011)
"I am the one who hurt my husband. We are friends even though we are divorced. I will continue to put my faith in the Lord, and wait for my husband to come back. I let my husband know all the time how much I love him and how sorry I am." (Florida) (posted 10/9/2009)
“God had impressed on me to write a letter to my husband's family explaining my stand for my marriage over a year ago. However, I just didn't see the point of writing such a letter. Every so often, God would bring the letter writing to my thoughts and I would dismiss it. About two weeks ago, God gave very specific directions to mail the letter to my husband's relative who is the family pastor. I was obedient and feel so awesome regarding my obedience, having no motives of my own. This week I spoke with my husband as to whether I should include him in my bio for a campaign I am entering and he said yes, to include his name as me being married to him.” (Louisiana)  (posted 3/24/2012)

"For the first time in years, my prodigal is taking our girls to church on Easter. He asked if they could stay until Sunday and to pack their dresses. My little ones are excited and I am excited to witness the manifestation of answered prayers in this way." (Florida)

"PTL! Today's devotional (The Big Splash will Come) gave me two scriptures that a church sister and I spoke about this weekend (Mark 11:22-26 and Mark 10:27). I'm amazed! He does speak to us one way or another. He directs and leads in the pathway of righteousness. My spouse spent a couple hours playing games with our son for the first time since our separation. To God be all the glory for what He is doing and for what He is about to do. He is worthy of all honor, glory and praise. In the midst of my storm He gives me peace. The valley and darkness is where I met my husband, my Lord. Oh how I love Him!" (Ohio) (posted 3/18/2011)
“Praise GOD! I have been standing for the restoration of my marriage with my husband and it has been hard but every day my faith had been renewed until last night a conversation with a friend lead me to feel like giving up because really I had hurt my husband by leaving, why would he now want to restore our marriage? I felt like GOD wouldn’t possibly want me to be restored with him. But in the back of my heart my spirit refused to give up. I opened my Bible to Ephesians 6:10 ‘Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. I went onto my FB account and found a poem titled ‘I will wait for you’ and as I logged onto my online daily devotional it read ‘Don’t give up at THIRTYFOLD’ Mark 4:8. If that’s not GOD telling me I’m almost there I don’t know!! But I SUDDENLY have faith in bucket loads, its overflowing!”  (South Africa)  (posted 4/19/2012)
“My husband called me about our status. I finally got the chance to tell him I didn’t want the divorce but I would be at the next court date. I submitted my court date to RMM. A few days later he called to apologize for the way he’d been treating me during the many years of our separation! We are now on speaking terms and even spent some alone time together. God is working miracles in my marriage and I know it won’t be long before my prodigal is home. I’ve been praying the scripture prayers with our names in them daily. Keep standing and trust God. He will answer.”  (Illinois) (posted 11/17/2014)
“God is amazing! I recently learned that my employment contract will not be renewed due to reorganization and budget constraints. Although I am a bit nervous about finances, I keep hearing God tell me that this is an opportunity to change careers and focus. For the last year or so I have been praying for guidance on the type of work God wants me to do. I see this news as answer to prayer. God has changed me so much because while the circumstances could be paralyzing, they are not. I see this as one more step to reconciliation with my prodigal and moving toward the work and life God has planned for us. I am so blessed.”  (Iowa) (posted 6/23/2012)
"My husband moved out of the house he was sharing with the other woman. He moved his things to our home, but has chosen to stay at his mom’s. Praise God my husband is spending more time with me. Soon my husband will be home to stay. I give God all the praise." (Indiana) (posted 4/17/2009)
“PTL, God is so faithful. Within  weeks God gave me the reassurance/confirmation I needed. The first week I saw my first Covenant Transport truck, the next day I saw more trucks, the next week the OW asked me to meet with her, the following week my husband came home. He moved his stuff back in a week before Christmas, although he said he still wants a divorce, and doesn't want there to be any mixed signals why he has moved back in. I praise the Lord for bringing him home!There are many plans in a man's heart but the Lord's purpose shall prevail. Proverbs 19:21.”  (Georgia) (posted 1/6/2014)

“My suddenly is almost here! After many, many months of ‘it’s over,’ my prodigal told me this morning that he is done with the OW, and asked if I would like to go away later this year to work on our marriage! He said we have been married too long to just give up and he’s not interested in any other relationships. It has been such a hopeless couple of years and an impossible situation. This last week I had felt that ‘it’s time to move on with life,’ even though I knew the promises God had given me. I was weak…BUT GOD! He will keep His promises. I know there is a long road ahead, and many wounds to be healed, but I thank my Lord that He is working in my marriage! Don’t give up, I almost did. I now wait for my prodigal to come back to the Lord as that has been a promise from the beginning. Please pray for us as I will keep praying for you.”  (Oregon) (posted 8/11/2014)
