"Last year my husband moved in with the other woman. They have already broken up and he has been spending more time with us. It is so amazing how God works. He has answered many of my prayers. Although my husband is not home yet and has no plans of moving back I know God will make this happen in His time." (Pennsylvania)
“Praise God for He has restored our marriage. My husband demanded a divorce. I was devastated. I was a new believer and I couldn't grasp what was happening to my life. God was telling me to let my husband go. He also told me that the generations of divorce would end now. I was confused and cried out to God. God led me here, to RMM, and I never looked back. I submitted everything to the Lord. He worked on me and showed me things that I needed to change. God softened my heart towards my husband and cleansed my heart of unforgiveness. God continued His work in me and a few months later, my husband returned home. I encourage all standers to listen to the Lord and concentrate on fixing themselves and allow the Lord to fix our prodigals. He is so very faithful, even when our spouses are not.Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8.”  (Ohio)

 "What Satan meant for harm, God has surely used for His glory. My wife and I are currently working things out. We celebrated our homecoming by building a bonfire and destroying everything she had accumulated in the far country. We then burned all the divorce papers, which disappeared along with the lawyers. It has been a long hard struggle for three years, raising children alone, but God has strengthened me beyond measure. I love His Word. I love His promises. But most of all I have fallen in love with my Savior. He can do all things. We have a lot of work to do now, but our God is faithful and I know He is there with us. Standers, no matter what Satan throws at you, don't give in. Turn to Jesus and leave it in the hands of the One who can handle it." (Alabama)

"My husband came home suddenly two weeks ago. I am so grateful to God. I stood on the promise of that little mustard seed and miracles started happening everywhere in my life, not only my marriage is healed, but also my family is healing."  (New York)

"Praise the Lord, our divorce date has been postponed. I have been fasting and praying for it to be cancelled and our marriage restored before the holidays. I am trusting God for my husband’s salvation and restoration of our marriage and that this divorce will not only be postponed, but cancelled forever. Thank you Bob and Charlyne for your daily encouragement and for helping all standers to stand strong." (Oregon)
"The moment of breakthrough came yesterday. The Lord orchestrated an opportunity for me to see my hubby for the first time since the divorce hearing. We spent hours together talking and being playful. He said he could not offer me anything but in my heart I know this is the beginning of our restoration." (Texas)
"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." Psalm 91:14-15

And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.  Romans 5:2b-5 

"I haven't heard from my wife since before Christmas. We have little if any contact. I wanted the Lord to show me He was still working and I was doing the right thing by standing. He put me right behind a Covenant Transport truck with no way to get around it in traffic the other day. Then yesterday my wife called wanting me to help her with a situation. God placed it on her heart to turn to me instead of the other person. I now hope to have a chance to show her how the Lord is changing me. If you haven't thanked the Lord today do so, He is always working on our behalf. Thank You, Jesus I love You." (North Carolina)
“I am thanking God my husband, who left home three years ago, came home last night for my son's birthday dinner. I sent him an invitation to dinner to which he did not respond but we believe the Holy Spirit prompted him to come. I saw him after a whole year and although I broke down with a heavy heart later, I rejoice that God will bring him back in His time not mine. I have been standing for restoration of my marriage for several years, supported by your ministry and held together by God. I believe that nothing is impossible for our God. Although my marriage seems dead, He is a God who restores and raises from the dead. Thank you Charlyne and everyone at RMM for teaching the Word of God uncompromisingly and encouraging every stander to believe in our God who never fails.”  (Australia)
"Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!" Psalm 66:16-20
"I received a financial blessing from my job, which after bills were paid was the exact amount needed to get my car repaired. Thank You, God." (Texas)
“PTL! My husband used a vacation day from work to spend time with me. As we sat down to eat, I asked him to say the blessing and he did! I said amen and quietly rejoiced in my heart. I am humbled by the changes the Lord has made in both of us. Satan has been attacking me relentlessly lately---but GOD!!”  (Nevada)  

"I used to write you praying for God to bring my husband home and he did four years ago, but he came home a different man. He had a motorcycle accident and was in a coma for months. I never gave up on him, through his drugs, other women and a coma. God told me to hang on and I did. Now my best friend/husband is learning life all over again and he is home and I am more grateful than you will ever know. We have a long road ahead, but we will do it together, hand in hand with God in the lead. Thank you for helping me to never give up." (California) (A PS from Pompano - You need to be ready for God to bring your spouse home at any time and in any condition, as this wife was.)

"During the start of my stand I tried everything to get my husband to turn back to God. I finally got to the place where I fully gave him to God. Since then my husband has found a pastor friend, started attending church, has said he was sorry for saying mean things and prayed with our kids for God to move me back to the same city he and my kids live in. For my husband to make these steps is a huge miracle of God and proof of a changing heart. Praise God." (Washington)
“My husband and I have been separated for many months due to his work, keeping him on the road for months at a time. I finally got to see him this last weekend and while I was there, he told me that eventually we would grow apart and that he couldn't give me the things I deserve. I have been praying to God, doing my best in keeping faith in Him, that He intends marriage to be permanent, and that He will work in my heart and my spouse's heart. Tonight on my way home from work, I happened to look out at the freeway and saw aCovenant Transport truck going by. I had read the Covenant Transport messages on this website and have not seen those kind of trucks here in Nebraska. All I could say was, ‘I know that was You God and thank You!' I am still standing for my marriage and still praying God will restore us in His time and in His way, sending prayers my spouse will hear His voice and accept Jesus and His salvation.”  (Nebraska)  
"My husband called to tell me about a dream he had. I was able to share with him my insight into his dream. He said I know him better than anyone else in the world. I was able to share that it was God. I know God is drawing my husband back to Himself and to me. God is faithful. To Him be the glory." (Canada)
“I have been standing for my marriage for many years even before separation from my husband. This week I felt so weary and discouraged. I prayed to God and let Him know exactly how I felt. I told God that no matter how I felt I will still praise Him. The next day my husband invited me to his house for dinner. God knows our hearts and He will perfect that which concerns us.”  (Canada) 

Today is the one year anniversary of my husband leaving us. God is using this time to change both our hearts. My husband is nicer the last couple months. Two days ago he asked if he could spend Christmas with the kids and me, even though it was his turn to have them. God has changed me to show love and forgiveness even if I was not loved back. I can't wait to see what He has planned over Christmas. (Canada) 

“My husband came over to the house to see our sick daughter. During his visit he mentioned wanting a divorce. I was able to let my husband know that I was standing firmly for our marriage and that I loved him and would stand for the rest of my life if I had to. Soon after he left I my eyes welled up with tears and my spirit felt broken, when I remembered that I had not read my Charlyne Cares for the day. I read the subject line ‘Your Dead Marriage Can Come Back to Life!” Talk about an on-time word from God! Even when the situation looks grim, His Word is always on time. Praise God  and looking forward to my suddenly!”  (Georgia) 
“I want to share that while standing for many, many years, after being divorced, having seen a non-covenant marriage and children, my husband has been separated for a couple of years now. I am still standing and trusting God for restoration of our marriage. There have been many things happening during this time. For a while now, we have been living under the same roof taking care of his mother who had a fall and needs our assistance. We spend evenings together, talking, watching TV, eating, helping with his children when they come for a visit. We have come a long way from no communication to him sharing what he is doing. We still do not talk about us or what happened, but I know God is in this and working to restore our marriage. I enjoy this time together and I think that he does also. I thank God for all that He has done.” (Virginia)
"This past Tuesday I had knee surgery number eight. Since my wife abandoned our marriage, I have no one to make meals, check mail and drive for me. Before surgery, I asked God to guide the surgeon's hands and to give me a speedy recovery, so I could fend for myself. Two days after surgery, my recovery is equivalent to what should have taken several weeks. In previous knee surgeries, I have never experienced this type of rapid healing. However, I was never this close with my walk with God. His blessings are a miraculous answer to my prayers. Praise God." (Alaska)
"My precious wife suddenly ran away nearly a year ago. I am still believing God's will for us. As the months tick by I wait on God for a miracle, my faith grows deeper, my stand stronger. He is answering my prayers to avoid court hearings and delay settlements. God is good and He disciplines us for our own good. Believe it!" (New Zealand)
“I came across your website last year while my husband and I were separated. During that time I thought there was no hope for my marriage because my husband and I were not talking. He had moved into in his own apartment and was actively seeing other women. I cried and prayed and cried and prayed to the point where I was just about to give up because my prayers did not seem to be getting answered. Just when I was ready to give up on my husband and the restoration of my marriage, God sent my husband back to me. We have been back together going on four months now. Every day is a challenge but I am determined to continue to fight and make our marriage work. Please continue to pray for the restoration of my marriage as I will continue to pray for the healing of broken marriages all across the world. Thank you prayer worriers.” (California)
“Another ’Godincidence?’ I must praise the Lord for all the International testimonies that we have each week, but this week we have had more than usual. To God be the glory! The message of marriage restoration is for everyone around the world. God is everywhere, growing through the Holy Spirit in us. He is reaching more of His children every day. So, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us run the race! Let us put on the full Armor of God, do everything in the Spirit, because we know that our stand is not in vain. Our God is so great!”  (Oregon) 

“I’m so happy I have a testimony to share; as most of you know that means I have been tested. I just praise God and want to send fellow standers hope, that God is truly faithful! My husband was supposed to be home for Thanksgiving. Things didn’t go as we hoped and planned. God is still faithful and He has his own timing. Long testimony short, God brought my prodigal spouse home just like He showed me in a vision. Keep the faith standers, I’m still standing with you and God is too! Zechariah 4:6.”  (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)
"Your ministry was the first thing I found the night I prayed for guidance on what the Lord wanted me to do in marriage. I was separated 16 months from a 23 year marriage. Your e-mail encouraged me so much through this journey. I know that the Lord will bless you abundantly for your unconditional love to his families. My husband is home. Yes Bob, he is wounded but praise God He will finish what He started. Every day God is giving me miracles through my husband. He also came home physically needing help. I consider it an honor to be there for him. You sent me your book on God does heal hurting marriages and hurting bodies. What a BLESSING !!!I know the Lord will restore his health totally!!! PRAISE GOD MY MIRACLE CAME HOME!!! In fact I told my husband that today!!! The day before he came home he said "You do realize that I am coming home with nothing, do you understand that?" I said "Probably more than you may think I do." One day he will read and hear the tapes of what I had learned while he was gone. Right now I am not asking questions just listening. It is an honor to wait on him and care for him."
"Suddenly, my spouse returned home. Through prayer, fasting and confirmation God answered my prayers. After receiving several text messages and attempts to find his way home my prodigal spouse is home. He is happy, healthy and humble. The battle is not over though, we must stay in the word of God always. Prayer really changes things. Thank you Bob and Charlyne for your support and prayers. You are a blessing to every troubled marriage." (Florida)
“I've been standing for many years, with no information from my husband, and it has been a COMPLETE walk of faith. I recently got a new general devotional and when I ‘just flipped it open’ for the first time, it was on a devotional all about a marriage restoration!! PRAISE GOD!"  (Georgia) 
But I call to God, and theLord saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.  Psalm 55:16-17
The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.  Genesis 2:23-24
“All the glory, honor and praises to my Lord Jesus! When my husband told me he wanted to move out, I was so devastated, because I was blindsided and didn't know what to do. From that day forward God brought me closer to Him than I have ever been. I have sought His face and applied His Word to my marriage and my life daily and He has blessed me. I fasted and prayed the Lord would close all doors of opportunity for my husband to leave and two days before my husband was to move out, he was laid off his job! He had to cancel the lease and has stayed home! My husband was still in the far country even though he was home. Just last week I saw a bumper sticker that read, ‘He's coming back.’ The next day my husband told me he may be interested in reconciling! Praise God! He is answering my prayers!”  (Texas)  

"Because he love me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." Psalm 91:14-15

Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back for good—no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother.  Philemon 1:15-16a 
"I called for information regarding our court case. Our divorce will be final within months. To my amazement I feel peace and know God is with me in this season and He is in control. I know man cannot dictate God's will for my marriage." (California)
"But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done; in your name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your saints." Psalm 52:8-9

“I got an anniversary card from the ministry on Sunday and then suddenly, the next week, my husband packed his bags and came home. SUDDENLY! I really want to share this testimony here because all the devotions sent to me every day have done a great job in me. Keep praying because God is faithful.”  (Uganda)

"My husband has been back home with our family for a year this month. Thank you so much for your daily devotionals. I have told many people that I feel like you are a second set of parents to me. So many times I would open my email to read the exact word I needed for that exact time. My husband is growing each day to be the Godly man and father I believed he could be. Before your ministry, I didn't know I had a right to stand on our covenant. I love you both dearly, and if I never meet you on this earth, you will be some of the first I search for when we all get to Heaven." (Georgia)
"After the New Year's Eve conference call I cried out to my Lord for confirmation for His will as it relates to my stand. After weeks of silence my prodigal called New Year's Day, asking if he could stop by for a visit. The conversation was light, as he was leaving he made a couple of comments that led me to believe he felt some shame and was a bit discouraged. I believe it was God's way of showing me that my covenant spouse is struggling and he felt the need to see me. God does answer our prayers when His timing is right. Our God is awesome." (Florida)

"The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous. A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones." Proverbs 15:29-30

“I have been standing for our reconciliation and haven't heard from my spouse for some time. I attended a conference and read a devotional about the power of praying in agreement with other believers. I asked the Lord to help me stand strong because many people were praying for me personally, but not with me in agreement for reconciliation. Later that day, as I was about to depart from the conference, a woman who I had met there said, ‘I just want to let you know that I am praying in agreement for your reconciliation.’ I started to cry and was so thankful to hear from the Lord that way, especially since she used the exact phrase, ‘praying in agreement’ and not just ‘praying for you.’ It was an extra special moment for me. God does hear us and He does speak to us and He is working on our mountain.”  (Virginia) 
"Monday was the end of the mandatory 90-day waiting period for the divorce. A missionary my husband admires called him out of the blue to encourage him. God's timing is wonderful. My husband says he really likes what God has done in me. I thank God for His answered promise of a heart of flesh." (Pennsylvania)
“Thank you for your radio station. My children are grown and the house is lonely. Yet time spent with the Lord and the radio station on as I am here has helped tremendously. Keeps me on track and gives such encouragement and hope. Thank you!” (Oklahoma)
“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) 
“After many years of standing, I see my prodigal follow all the patterns. Despite precautions, I've been tempted by other men since my husband filed for divorce. I came close to quitting my stand but, knowing these patterns too, with great difficulty I've resisted temptation. Our first hearing was delayed twice. Prior to the next hearing I came close to agreeing to the settlement my husband was forcing. I thought when the hearing came we would be divorced but my husband postponed the hearing saying he was to be on an airplane. Since he was to attend this hearing via speaker phone, the only thing to keep him from a phone was being on a plane. It’s been weeks and no hearing has been rescheduled. Christmas Eve I received several rare emails from my husband. He made no mention of his delaying the hearing. I continue to invite him home where he can live saving the expense of renting his apartment. Lord soften his heart.”  (Wisconsin)  
"Months after my husband filed for divorce and with zero contact, I felt that God was telling me to email him to tell him I loved him and asked for forgiveness, even though he is the one that left me. He had blocked all my phone calls, texts and emails. To my surprise this time he emailed back that he forgave me. I have not heard anything from him since, but I know that God is working on my husband’s heart." (Georgia)
“God gave me a revelation today. Before Jesus died, He told everyone He would be back. Then when He died, everyone thought He was dead for good. But God is faithful and He keeps His promises and He arose! My marriage is almost ‘legally’ over, but it will be resurrected because God told me so! My prodigal has decided to go through with the divorce. BUT, I have peace. It's not the end! My hope is in Him!”  (Texas) 
"The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory." Romans 8:16-17
"My husband came home almost one year to the day of our separation. I know I have been greatly blessed and not just because of his homecoming, but because God has transformed and humbled me. Life is still a struggle and many times I have to remember all that the Lord has done and promised to do and that He has not taken us this far just to let us fall down. I have weeks of being so spiritually attacked but thank the Lord Charlyne and Bob's devotionals are always right on for getting me out of my pity party. This ministry is such a life line to me. God's finger prints are all over it. God amazes me so much. I'm so glad He chose me to know Him more. Stand firm no matter where in the restoration process you are, God is so faithful to give faith, peace and comfort especially when you think your situation has reached impossible. The most important thing I can share with a stander is this: 'Make sure God is first, in time reading His word, in chatting with Him privately, in His will. Does He want you to fast, clean, read or love more? You'll see miracle after miracle when God is first. Praise the Lord. He is so good.'" (Florida)
