“When I began my masters degree earlier this year, I was wondering how I was going to find an internship and work too. I have no connections to study under anyone, but I began the program, trusting that the Lord would provide in His time. An old colleague that I haven't seen in eight years is a director now at a school district and able to help me find an internship. She told me she would help me with whatever I needed!” (Texas)
"Recently after reading 2 Kings, Chapter 8 the Lord taught me that there were no coincidences in His Kingdom work. I am a prison officer and as I walked through another landing I glanced at the bookshelf. The book right in the center facing me was titled 'Summer Prodigal.' I knew this had to be from the Lord." (Great Britain)
"My precious husband called to see if he could come by and wash his clothes. I praise God for the beautiful time I had with my beloved. God is faithful. He does soften hearts of stone." (Georgia)
“At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes,” says the LORD.  Zephaniah 3:20 
“After standing for a few years of my marriage and even after countless times of wanting to give up, my husband has returned from the prodigal way of living. God in His faithfulness has touched the heart(s) of His children. To God be the glory. I still consider myself a stander and will continue to pray for my husband and other families on this site. This ministry is a blessing and I feel like we are all family fighting for God’s family. Don't give up! He is able and yes, He is so faithful! Keep trusting and believing God for your marriage. Keep standing. We are in God’s army!"  (Michigan) 
"Praise the Lord. During a family visit my husband came by and spent the day and night with us, as if nothing had changed. He recently called and asked if I could watch his baby. Even though he insists that I move on with life, I know that God will restore my marriage soon." (Washington)
“Sunday was my first anniversary without my husband, now a prodigal. I had to contact him on a business issue. He quickly responded and also said that he was sad and that God was dealing with him on many things to the point that it was sometimes overwhelming. I wrote him a heartfelt e-mail back, telling him that the enemy was the cause of our problems, not each other, and that I love him and pray for him every day. Shortly after I concluded my scripture prayers for him, he showed up at my front door! Because of something scary that happened in my neighborhood the night before, he said that he wanted to make sure everything was okay. We talked for a while and when he left he hugged me for the first time since our separation. Satan still tries to make me doubt even after all the answered prayers, but I choose to believe God for my marriage restoration!”  (North Carolina)
“My husband was called away on a short notice business trip and the enemy was putting doubts in my mind as to his whereabouts. I prayed and asked God to help me fight the enemy and to show me a sign that my husband was not lying. After my prayer, I stopped by the post office and I had received a package from Rejoice Marriage Ministries -- what perfect timing! The Lord answered my prayer and I felt at peace immediately. Later the same day, I was listening to the radio and heard a song which said I'm predestined for victory and that the victory was already mine. PTL! My God is restoring my marriage! That evening, I was able to share with a friend who is also struggling with his marriage on how God can heal hurting marriages. I gave him the website for Rejoice Marriage Ministries and he said he will definitely look up the website. Our God is an awesome God and I thank and praise Him every day!”  (Japan) 
"Four months ago I had surgery for cancer of the prostate. My first post- surgery blood test done earlier this week came back as undetectable. The PSA will be monitored periodically for a few years to monitor the results of my surgery. I know that God has blessed me by curing me of my cancer. To God be the Glory. May His Name be praised." (Texas)
"Frustrated with my stand, crying and asking God, 'Why would you want me to stand for a man like my husband?' I sat with tears running down my face and these thoughts came to mind; 'I was selfish and I've learned unselfishness. I didn't know how to truly love and now I do. I was impatient and I've learned to be patient.' God made it more clear with the next thought that came to my mind; 'Your husband will learn these things too.' This was God confirming yet again that I am doing His will." (Wisconsin)
Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. The mind of the rash will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. For the fool speaks folly, his mind is busy with evil: He practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the LORD; the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water. The scoundrel's methods are wicked, he makes up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. Isaiah 32:3-7
“I have been standing for many years now. At times I wanted quit, but God placed a loving conviction in my heart to stand, for my family and my husband’s soul. Friends and family, have said, ‘Let go and move on.’ I have had ministers tell me my husband ‘is just too far lost.’ I refuse to accept this. For several weeks the message of covering yourself in God's armor has repeatedly been before me. I realized it was God preparing for a battle. This week I received a letter from the Catholic Church (neither my husband nor I are Catholic) saying my husband has petitioned the Church to have our 20 year marriage annulled. Initially I was devastated. Then I realized, my husband must be going to church, and this letter was God's way of showing me. God has been preparing me to battle for my family, using nothing but the Word of God, and faith. I declare in the precious name of Jesus, Satan is not going to win this battle. Amen.”  (Oklahoma)
“Six months ago, I moved with my daughter 400 kilometers away from my husband. I wanted to start a new life after my husband moved in with the other woman. But God wanted me to pray for my marriage. I was unable to find work and couldn’t work due to my daughter’s illness but God has always provided good supernaturally. God told me to do what my husband says. He wanted us to come back to our home. Two weeks ago, we moved again, and I got three job offers, and I wasn’t even looking. Praise be to God.”  (Germany) 
"Recently in prayer with a friend I was encouraged that my prodigal is not my ex, even after all these years. Today my prodigal asked about church, something not talked about in years. Our hope is Christ." (Connecticut)
"The Lord provided a job in my field after financial struggles. This is an answer to years of prayer. During this time, I earned a Bachelors degree and have almost completed my Masters degree. I knew I needed to become financially stable so I could take care of my wife. Thank you Lord for Your loving kindness." (Arizona)
"After a couple years of standing, my husband just called and said he is not sure about the divorce anymore. He said God had given him the family he always wanted, but he failed to realize it. He admitted it's been hard for him and that he was always trying to convince me that it was over between us. He has started seeing the pastor who married us to work on himself. Today someone gave me an expensive wedding dress and prophetic word. God has been faithful." (New York)
"Praise God my husband dropped my daughter off at church today and stayed for the service. The sermon was definitely from God and was about the sinful nature. My husband even joked afterward that I had talked to the pastor before the service. God can make all things good and direct paths." (Colorado)
"My prodigal husband came over last night. I reassured him of my stand for our marriage restoration. My husband cried. We prayed. Jesus continues to heal our hearts. My husband confessed things to me. I grabbed his hands, forgave him and hugged him. We are one day closer to restoration." (Florida)
"My husband left with no warning. God put it in my heart to examine myself and how I contributed to the demise of our relationship. I started reading the Bible and then begin to focus on scriptures that spoke of marriage, wifely duties and faith. I started praying daily for restoration and continued to pray no matter what he said or did to hurt my feelings. I prayed a hedge of thorns around him and called out to God to stop what he hates (Divorce) and restore what he loves (Marriage). I prayed that my husband, who is a Christian, would be convicted by the Holy Spirit to turn away from sin and open his heart back to our marriage. I cried so many tears but remained faithful. Many times I would be about to give up but then God would encourage me with a sign and I would press on.   Suddenly my husband started calling me. I was able to express my regrets about my past behavior.  He returned home in September, praise the Lord." (Maryland)

"My husband filed for divorce and moved out. I decided to stand for my marriage, I made changes in my life to develop my spiritual walk with God while I waited with faith that God would put us together and better than ever. During this time, I also prayed for his salvation. Not only is my husband back home and divorce cancelled, but he now has a spiritual mentor. We have prayed together for the first time." (Texas)

"With prayer and fasting my prodigal has been removed from the other person. There has been other false starts, but my young son reminded me that God was going to finish what He started." (New York)
“My son called telling me he was on his way home this morning with his dad. We have been apart on and off for years and I was hoping that God’s timing would be right, and my prodigal would come in. A miracle from God! Not only did he come in, but tasted the prime rib, and had beautiful flowers for me. He wished me Happy Thanksgiving. As he was leaving he started crying outside for five minutes before he left. All praise and honor goes to the Lord; it's all His doings. I zipped my lips.”  (California)
"I was praying for a glimmer of hope from my wife. Then her father called and asked me to go to breakfast. We had such an amazing time. God really went before us and allowed for me to share my heart with my father-in-law, and I was able to see his. Knowing that my in-laws are praying for restoration just as much as I am was a real encouragement. Praise God." (Canada)
"Praise the Lord, after months of not seeing my husband he came in where I work. He hunted me up, talked to me and acted like the other person wasn't even there. I know God is working in both our hearts for the restoring of our marriage." (Texas)
“The Lord and I have been standing for our marriage for some months now and He has been faithful through every obstacle. He is working very swiftly and where I once 'thought' I saw a mountain of separation, the Lord said I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say,My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.'" Isaiah 46:10. So I said if the Lord does not see a mountain of separation between my husband and I, then I do not see a mountain either. When I put my focus and trust on God things began happening. My husband recently texted me a picture of a car he saw on the road with the scripture John 3:16. I praised and thanked the Lord because He had given me confirmation to one of my prayers that my husband was coming to the Lord in the natural very, very soon! Standers do not give up because the Lord sure hasn't!”  (Texas)
“I encourage us to pray fervently for one another’s marriages because this is God’s institution and idea that is coming under attack by the enemy. Stand strong and be not weary in well doing. God is restoring your marriage. So many blessings have occurred since the beginning of my stand. I’ve gone from broken, hurt, defensive, disappointed, hopeless, fearful and disbelieving to healed, closer to God, more loving and understanding, depending fully on God. I’m filled with hope and victory! PTL.”  (Illinois)
"My prodigal came to church on Sunday with his family for the first time in over a year. He rededicated his life back to God. We hugged and got a chance to converse." (Louisiana)
"The LORD is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident." Psalm 27:1-3
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”  Matthew 6:33 
“I have been standing for my marriage for several months. My husband has been blinded by the fact that in his past his parents were not there for him and he had numerous sexual experiences with other boys. He told me he wants to leave me for he is sure he is a homosexual.  Over the past months I was a train wreck. Luckily, I came to this site and God and I have been taking a trip together. He has taught me that He was not in the center of my family, I always placed my husband first. I keep praying and treating God like my husband and am fighting spiritually for my husband as Satan is telling us such filth. I know God is with me and knows how to find my husband on speed dial. I wait.”  (South Africa)  
“‘But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.'"  Luke 15:32
“Praise God. He alone is in the process of changing hearts and transforming not only the hearts of our prodigals but our hearts also. God has influenced my prodigal to help me by picking up our infant from nursery and looking after him while I am at work. When I finish work, he waits patiently for me to pick him up so my husband can himself go to work. My husband finds me very desirable and I find him desirable too. These are all miracles for two years ago we were in court - bitter, angry and fighting. Have faith, for without faith it is impossible to please God.”  (United Kingdom)  
"I am so thankful to the Lord! He is faithful and works in strange and beautiful ways. I've been standing strong for my marriage. My husband was unfaithful and gave up on our marriage while he was deployed. The military sent him to our home town when he was removed from active duty. To save money, he asked to stay in our home. He has accepted a job in another state with travel overseas, but is here in our home now. There has been no talk of ending things. God is moving!"  (Oregon)
"I contacted an attorney because I was scared of not responding to the divorce papers my husband filed. I didn't have money to pay, so she guided me to the State's online divorce information. I've been praying against the divorce. I could not find a case number online. When I called they said there was no case opened. My husband shared that he lost the divorce papers I thought he had filed months ago. I was able to pray together with him. God is moving." (Washington)

"While preparing lunch for myself I felt impressed to take the meal to my husband at his work. He is always on my mind and in my prayers. I really didn't feel like going out again. I tried to reason with God about this. I felt impressed that I may miss an opportunity to witness to my husband my unconditional love, and as we have been separated for awhile, I wanted to reaffirm my love for him. I prayed he would be at work to receive the food, along with a small bunch of pansies from our garden. He was there when I arrived. All praise to God." (Australia)
"My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever." Psalm 145:21
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  Isaiah 41:10 
“I've been praying, fasting and meditating on God's Word and for awhile we heard or saw nothing, I knew our Lord was working mightily in our marriage. Lately my husband has been very loving towards both our son and me. We have gotten very close and I'm praying that before the year is up, we get our suddenly. Thank You for the hope you give us standers and the guidance you show us in hearing and accepting God's Word and waiting on His perfect timing. All the praise and glory to our God for showing that He can and will restore dead and hurting marriages.”  (Texas) 

"My husband came home New Year's Day because he said this is where he belonged. He is with me and our children but he still has feelings for other woman. I am praying over him every chance I get thru the night. The first step is he came back, and now, I need to zip the lips and pray, pray, pray. This battle is far from over, but it is a step in the right direction. We have an awesome God and prayer has never been as real as it is right now." (Arizona)

“My husband filed for divorce. After over a year of court appearances and one session with a counselor who deemed our marriage to have broken down irretrievably, the judge yesterday dismissed the petition. Many are the plans in a man's heart but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21 Jesus, I trust in You.”  (Trinidad & Tobago) 
“My husband filed for divorce each and every time we had a court date I would put it on the court page. There have been times he didn’t show up and the time he did he cried uncontrollably. I finally got up enough nerve to ask if he wanted to dismiss the case but he answered no. I continue to pray for my marriage and my husband though there are many obstacles and false starts home. I knew my husband didn’t want the divorce because he didn’t comply. God did it! The judge dismissed his case and my husband hasn’t expressed any anger. God is in control over all. Thank You Jesus.”  (New Jersey)

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

My husband called me yesterday to tell me that we had to either set a court date or sign divorce papers uncontested immediately, because his "filed divorce" had been in the docket for the maximum amount of time. I told him that I still refuse to sign his divorce papers, because I don't want a divorce nor do I believe in a divorce because it isn't God's will! God is in control and I am trusting God alone to do the impossible and restore my covenant marriage. I know that I know that this isn't a coincidence! God has the final say so and all of my faith is in Him! He has given me a peace that surpasses all understanding! I want to give God praise, honor, glory, and thanks in advance for restoring my marriage, as He promised! Standers, NEVER give up!”  (Arkansas)
"I give Jesus all the praise because my husband is almost moved back in. Most of his belongings are back in the house and he is selling his apartment furniture. I continue to believe that his heart will move spiritually back home to Jesus as well. Nothing is impossible with God." (Canada)

“Thank You Lord. As I am typing this praise report I am sitting in my husband's living room at his apartment together with our son for Father’s Day. To say this is a suddenly and totally unexpected event is an understatement. This is the first time in years that he has said we can be together for Father’s Day. But for God I would have given up and walked away a long time ago. I refuse to try and guess what happens next or declare this as his homecoming (lean not to our own understanding). Instead I will enjoy our time together today as a family knowing that this is a taste of Almighty God's timing when we will be a family united. God is good. Thank You Jesus for Your blood which covers us.”  (United Kingdom) 
“Praise the Lord! My husband had been spending more and more time with us, and every weekend he would ‘accidentally’ leave another item at our home. It was a visible sign to me that the Lord was drawing him home. He came to stay with us for two whole weeks. It was a blessed and peaceful time. Then suddenly the enemy struck hard, and my beloved husband was gone again, along with all his possessions. I could have been crushed but thanks to the testimonies here at RMM I was able to see it as a false start along the road to restoration. I fasted and prayed and took all my pain to God and He lifted me up right away! I know that my husband will come home in God’s timing, and I am encouraged that for the first time, he has acknowledged his sin against us. God gave me Psalm 91:9-14 to encourage my heart, and I will praise Him always!”  (Canada)
"I was praying and asking God to send me encouragement regarding my marriage. I work in the Human Resources Department at my company and while I was working on a particular case I came across the names of two people that were an answer to my prayers. The names were: Rhema (rhema word from God) and Emmanuel (God with Us). What a blessing that was." (California)
“My husband left and was in the far country for many months. He came home for a time, telling me it was just for the kids, that he still felt nothing for me. Although I still held on and prayed all day every day, he left again. Two weeks ago I signed divorce papers and signed for an apartment. BUT GOD! One night I had a knock at my door. My suddenly happened! My husband came home! Last night he told me he loved me. We still have work to do but God is so faithful. I still pray and fast for other marriages all around the world. To God be the glory!”  (Tennessee)
