"This week my husband and I will celebrate three years of reconciliation. What an amazing journey this has been. We are also expecting our first child, something the doctors said would be impossible. All the credit goes to God, with thanks to Bob and Charlyne for sharing the truth when I needed to hear it." (Virginia)

“God answers prayer. I happened to catch the last five minutes of an old Billy Graham revival on TV. The last two stories of his sermon were of two marriages that were reconciled through the power of the Holy Spirit. Wow. Thank You, Jesus. The next morning at church the pastor was reciting all the people we needed to pray for. I thought to myself, ‘How about the marriages in our parish? He never mentions them.’ The next words out of his mouth were, ‘And let us pray for all the married couples in our parish.’ Yes Lord. I heard You loud and clear. I thank You and praise You.” (Florida) 
"The God we serve is mighty and holy. The Lord suddenly restored my marriage. I have learned a lot and have changed a lot. I am sure my husband is astounded at the changes in me. I am now standing for his salvation. God will do it for His Glory." (South Africa)
“I recently found out that my husband is no longer talking to the other woman. PTL! I'm still believing God will put love and forgiveness in his heart for me, cancel the divorce and restore our marriage. God is working. Thanks for your prayers.”  (Tennessee)  
At times i felt the devil telling me that my stand wouldn't work. The scriptures are giving me hope and helping me be strong in my stand to pray my husband back to the lord jesus christ. Also stop divorce radio is a god send it play almost 247 in my house,car and job. I'm learning to cry out to the lord for help and answers or signs. This situation was very devastating but now im learning to be a better christian and a better wife this stand is teaching me so much im blessed that god has me standing for my husband and our family. Praise God He is so worthy. (Connecticut)
"I am praising God for all the little things that are happening with my beloved over the last four months. It started with a few texts a week and then each week God adds a phone call or a stop by to check in or an actual date to the movies. We now have contact every single day in one shape or another. The other person is still in the picture, but I choose to praise my Lord for what I get every day. I am not going to lie; it has been a struggle and I do hurt. But I continue to believe what my Lord has spoken to my heart and soon God will suddenly make him to run away from her." (Pennsylvania)
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
“It is a long time now that I have prayed for our marriage to be restored. Now that I have found you, I am so grateful to know that I am not alone. The day I found your website I asked God for a sign that standing for my marriage is still right for me. Immediately a song came on the radio called, ‘Who Says You Can't Go Home.’ I was stunned by how quickly the Lord moves when we ask for help. I am trusting my marriage will be restored in God's time. He is so good and great!” (New York) 
"My wife left me and has filed for divorce. The other day out of the blue she started emailing me but she told me not to get false hope. She has started going to church and put our marriage in God’s hands and is praying for God to lead her in the right direction. Glory to God." (North Carolina)
“Although I am still waiting on God's timing for complete restoration, I would like to testify that after my divorce was finalized last year, my husband and I have been seeing each other every weekend for the last six months. My husband is still double-minded and has yet to show any interest in recommitting back to our marriage. BUT I know that God is faithful and He will complete what He began. I have great expectations for my suddenly! I am always encouraged by Joshua 21:45, not one of His promises failed...all were fulfilled!”  (New York)  
“Thank you all for your prayers. After the most traumatic month of love and having given up, through God's grace I am still standing. But God. My husband and I are now communicating again. PTL. He showed me that he cared via a message after I told him I was sick. Only God could do that.”  (South Africa)
“It is confirmed today - the OW left! It is an answer to a specific prayer. Now I know that Lord is perfect and faithful. Thank You my Lord! Now my prayer is that my husband can look for Jesus and look for a church. Also, that God can put love in his heart toward me. Amen.”  (California) 
"I struggled with thoughts about my spouse and the other woman. I was praying and asking God to renew my mind. I was reading the Psalms and God pointed out to me Psalm 37:1: 'Do not be envious of those who do wrong, for like grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.' I thanked God for that. I have no need to worry anymore." (New Jersey)

“I am a stander and my prodigal spouse is slowly staying in our home. He has cut off communication with the other person. Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing. I am so much closer to our Father in Heaven. I am praying for a Christmas miracle of slow, gentle reconciliation of our marriage. We serve such an amazing GOD; He can do anything in His perfect timing. Let this testimony be a living example of when you trust and obey, GOD will bless you more than you can imagine. Fellow standers, be in fervent prayer pleading the blood of JESUS over your prodigal spouse.”  (Texas)

"My husband and I separated several years ago. I didn't know what to do. That's when God led me to your website. I was very encouraged We are back together living in our home for several months. My husband is a preacher and God has restored our ministry and our marriage. God is great. Never give up. If God said it He will do it." (Canada)
“I was alone for Christmas this year. I prayed for the Lord to fill me with His love, peace and most of all His joy. The joy I felt was indescribable. I praise my Father for loving me so much.”  (New York)

"My husband left, but the next month moved back home. I stood on God's Word. Even though I felt broken and alone, God was with me all the time. We're now communicating and loving each other, spending time with one another and with the children. I am grateful to the Lord for restoration. (Maryland)

“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)
"We divorced and I pursued a relationship with someone else. My husband was about to marry his girlfriend, but that also fell through. I began to stand on God's Word for restoration of my marriage. On the anniversary of our first date, we had our marriage restored. We both have centered our lives around Christ. God is so good." (Indiana)
"I have been praying for my spouse to attend church and PTL my spouse and children were in church last Sunday. Our God is really awesome and I know He will never forsake us. So keep the faith and keep praying."  (South Africa)
“God answers prayers. I had lost hope for my marriage until I found your website. It has been very encouraging and has made me change my perspective on how I viewed marriage. I have been praying and trusting the Lord for a communication breakthrough between me and my husband. I thank the Lord that yesterday he visited and stayed with us the whole day. I know God is speaking to him and in his own timing He will bring him back home. I am a stander and will not quit for the sake of my family.”  (Kenya) 
"We have a church-wide corporate fast the first of every year. This year the women of our church met to pray for each other. I, along with at least 500 other women, placed my prayer request written on a 3X5 card on the altar. A representative from my prayer group went to the altar to bring back enough cards for each lady in our group to pray for. When the representative handed me a request to pray for, it was my very own prayer request. I believe it was God's way of saying, 'You can have this one back, I have already answered it.' In His timing, He will restore what the locust have eaten."  (Texas)

 "God is so faithful. My prodigal husband has returned home after six months of living with the other woman."  (Michigan)

“Praise God! My suddenly has happened! My husband and I have been separated for  months. He told me he did not want to be married with such conviction I believed him. I was going to give up my stand but God said no. So I continued to fast and pray. Last Sunday God told me it was over. I didn't know what He meant until a couple days ago. I received a text from the OW saying my husband was miserable and we belong together. The next day my husband called and said he wanted to talk. He told me he wants his old life back and his marriage. I received a text from the OW saying I need to be with my husband and she will never see him again. My soul is overjoyed with thanks and love for God restoring my marriage. Keep the faith standers. With God ALL things are possible. Be blessed; this is only the beginning.”  (Nevada)
“My stand began with prayer. A sick feeling in my stomach that something just wasn't right. I cried out to God. I remember that day so well. It was not one of my normal prayers saying God fix this mess I made. It was a deep ‘God please show me!’ Within a matter of weeks, my world came crashing down. Or did it? During this time I have had many prayers answered. I have seen license plates and trucks and all kinds of wonderful things have happened to me. I fell in love with God, Jesus, and the Bible. I received a scripture in the Bible. 2 Kings 20:5. ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you.’I felt so much peace. Complete confirmation of which prayer had been answered. That very first one. It is so worth the wait. Thank You, God for loving me so very much.”  (Illinois) 
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3
“All praises to God. My husband and I separated a little bit ago. My husband’s past was not allowing us to move forward. I wasn’t happy. I kicked him out of the house. I prayed for my husband, for his heart and for our marriage. He is coming home today. The enemy is a liar and he will try to discourage you. Stay encouraged. PUSH - pray until something happens. In Jesus name.”  (New York) 
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! Isaiah 30:18
O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you.  Isaiah 30:19 
Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll - are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise -  in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?   Psalm 56:8-11
“Before marrying my husband many years ago, the popular thing to do was to make a list of the things you desired in a spouse, then pray that God would send that person to you. The other day I remembered my list, which I hadn't seen or even thought of in many years and asked the Lord if He could somehow make it surface. Later I was cleaning out a bin that contained children's school papers and other paperwork. In the bin was a grocery bag full of greeting cards we'd received for our wedding and my list was in the bag, too! God loves to answer our prayers and then some!”  (Florida) 
"The non-covenant called and offered to help me bring closure. God gave me the boldness to tell her that I stand for the restoration of my marriage. She wasn't too happy. I am thankful that God gave me an opportunity to tell her about my stand. Glory to God." (Delaware)
"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)

“God is good! Our marriage looked deader than dead. I hadn't talked to my husband in months. Then he called out of the blue and wanted to talk about us. He missed me. We still have a long way to go, but God! Don't give up. God does answer prayers and His love restores. Don't let your circumstances consume you because they truly don't matter. Let me say that again-they don't matter. Stop looking at them! And quit believing the lies from the enemy because they are just that…lies! Just keep your eyes on Jesus. You may not understand or like where you're at, but His way is best.”  (Texas)

"PTL!! My husband just got a substantial bonus at work. I would have never known about it if he did not tell me. He deposited the full amount to our joint account and paid my credit card debt in full. Though he has been in the far country for many months, I have faith God is working in his heart." (Florida)
“The other day I was feeling down. I had to finally make a call and set up a time to meet with an attorney after being served with divorce papers. I was crying at work and my manager sent me an instant message telling me to go home. As I was shutting down my computer my phone alerted me to an email. When I opened up the email in the subject line it stated, ‘You will get through this.’ I knew that was God telling me to hold on just a little while longer. I hear people mention all of the time how God has spoken to them and it made me wonder if I was doing something wrong but that confirmation proved to me that I am on the right track. I am standing on Genesis 50:20. Keep holding on standers!”  (Oklahoma)

“My husband has returned home after many months. No one thought that there was hope. My friends and family urged me to move on and get a divorce. Every time I was close to giving up, I did not feel God releasing me from my marriage. God made the impossible possible. Anytime I feel myself getting frustrated and offended I remember what God says about showing love. It is no longer about me but what God says. My husband has even started to do a devotional with me at night. When your spouse returns don't go back to the same attitude that you had before he left. Be the new you in Christ alone.”  (Tennessee)

“While reading the Saturday Testimonies, I was praying that I would hear from my spouse. I had just said that prayer and my phone rang. It was my spouse! Thank You, Heavenly Father for answered prayers.”  (Arkansas)
"As I intensified my stand through additional fasting and prayer, the enemy upped the ante. Last week I was ready to give up. Through 'Charlyne Cares,' I received encouragement to hang on and led me to discover Pastor David Wilkerson. Today God spoke directly to me through Pastor Wilkerson's message. All the small events that have been unfolding are part of a progressive miracle. We are blessed to serve an awesome God." (Minnesota)
“I placed my husband on the prayer list for healing of lung and liver disease. A biopsy had confirmed the liver disease. The doctor wanted to put him on an aggressive treatment plan that suppresses the immune system. I felt in my spirit he should not take this treatment as it was risky because of the lung disease. He went for his final visit to the doctor this week and the doctor told us that when doing the surgery, he examined the liver and found it healthy. What a mighty God to heal an incurable disease. Nothing is impossible with God.”  (California)
"God has been so good to me this week. Wednesday night my daughter was baptized and my husband and grown children attended. It is the first time our whole family has been to church together in years. Today God arranged for next week’s mediation date to be postponed. I am in awe of the greatness, love and mercy of our God." (Texas)
“I just want to praise the Lord for His great and mighty work. My husband came home briefly in January. I saw the great and mighty things that God is doing and the promise of what can be during that time. We don't talk now but that is okay because my faith is renewed as I come out of the fire and remember to look to Him for guidance for everything. God can and will save us. I pray for my husband's salvation and thank the Lord for being my husband during this season. I pray that spouses everywhere are visited by Jesus and they hear Him call to them and they reach out for help. Thank You God for all You do for me and everyone. Thank You for Your love.”  (Nevada)
“Thank you for continually pointing me in the right direction. My husband has been gone for some time and has filed for divorce. God told me He was not finished with us, not to give up. This has been the most difficult, dark season of my life, but God. He has carried me through. Your devotion on consistency spoke to me today. My husband dropped our son off the other night and told me he thinks of me often. He hugged me and kissed me like he hasn't done since before he filed. The pendulum Bob writes of is swinging back. Thank you for your prayers and helping me keep my focus on Christ, not circumstances.”  (Florida) 
"Several years ago my husband left our marriage and divorced me for another woman. The divorce turned me to God. I knew I could not be separated from God's love. As the pain started to melt into compassion for my then ex-husband I was able to forgive, and came to see that God was caring for both of us. One day he showed up at my door and was very contrite. He wanted to come home. He was a new man. He realized the hand of the devil had taken its toll. I welcomed him back with open arms. We are now remarried and happier than ever. Our remarriage is squarely based on Christianity."  (Wisconsin)
“God is good. This was in a recent email that my wife sent to me in reference to God working in our lives and our marriage. ‘I want to work on us,’ was in there and, ‘I'm coming home...(yes, the dot, dot, dot) soon.’ God is in the business of reconciliation and healing. All glory to God. Keep those prayers coming. ACT, do something to help others see God while you stand. Only when I truly ‘let go and let God’ did I experience joy in my circumstance. I found when I am helping others I no longer see ‘me’...I see God. Pray for me and my project I'm starting. Ask yourself, ‘What can I do to show others the love of our Savior?" And while you're figuring that out, God is doing what He does best...saving those who are lost. Like your spouse.”  (Tennessee)
“My husband stopped by the house for coffee - to tell me he has been seeing someone who was coming to live with him. He said he's prayed for God to show him if it's His will. We discussed how we might know God's will, how God might answer prayer and we opened the Bible. Silently I prayed for God to hold me, it hurt so much inside to hear him talk about his plans. As he continued to speak about he felt it was right, I looked down - my Bible had fallen to Philemon which we'd not been discussing. One sentence caught my eye from Verse 22 '..prepare a guest room for me, for I am hoping through your prayers to be restored to you.' I had such joy. God has never given me that verse before and he gave it to me in front of my prodigal while he talked of plans with someone new. I will pray, and hold on and trust God through this.”  (United Kingdom)
"My wife recently divorced me and this Christmas could have been so hard. My wife did not want me to even see the kids but God led me to pray rather than be bitter. My wife changed her mind completely and allowed me the time to celebrate our Savior's birth with our kids that I had longed for. God is working and is still in control. Praise God!" (Oregon)
“Please be encouraged dear stander, our God is able. Praising God for celebrating two years of current restoration of my marriage. The OW was still in the picture for a year after, but I kept applying the principles I had learned on RMM and God took care of the details. Yes, it is hard sometimes to keep forgiving, but God would continue to remind me of all the things HE has forgiven me for. Praying scripture kept my mind occupied and trusting the Lord. Keeping my mouth shut kept me from making more problems. But I could never express in words the joy I currently have in my marriage. I love my husband more than ever and pray that the love continues to grow stronger. My beloved told our grown son the other day that I am the sunshine in his life and that being with me makes him want to be a better person. All this because of GOD. Hang on friend, I am praying for miracles around the world for those who are standing in the gap. Please don't give up.”  (Pennsylvania)
"After a year of separation and years of affairs and emotional addiction, and at the door of mediation and divorce, my husband of many years is moving back home today. The Lord answered intense prayers and fasting. Believe in His promises." (Texas)
"I asked God for answers from His Word and he led me to Jeremiah 29:11. I believe this is God's stamp that my marriage will be restored. Praise the Lord. (United Kingdom)
