“PTL - my husband is home! The other person kicked him out and he and all his stuff have been home for over six weeks now. It has been just like Charlyne said- totally, suddenly and unexpected. Although my precious husband is grieving the broken soul tie and relationship, I see signs every day that God is doing a new thing in his heart! And even though we are divorced on paper and he is sleeping on the couch- he is HOME! He and I are talking more than we did our first years of marriage. He even mentioned getting married (jokingly- but I claimed it in Jesus name!) We have been out on dates together and are pretty much getting to know each other again. It's been many years of him being gone and it looked so completely hopeless. Even though the other has been ‘brought’ home with my husband in his grief - I know to keep praying for her, her family and mine. God is no respecter of persons - if He did it for me, He WILL do it for you! Ephesians 3:20.”  (Minnesota) 
 "After almost a year of separation and divorce papers being filed, my spouse has returned home. To God be the glory. Nothing is impossible with Him." (Arkansas)
“It's Not Over! I am so excited at what God is doing on the other side of my mountain. My husband has been very mean and cold towards me. I have cried out to God asking God to release me from standing because of the pain. Every time I pray, God gives me some kind of sign to encourage me to keep standing. I have been fasting and praying for marriage restoration. My husband came to our home and he apologized for being so mean to me. He said the words I have been asking the Lord to hear. ‘I'm sorry.’ Thanks to Ms. Charlyne, I knew to ‘Zip my lips’ and just let him talk. I thank God for this small step towards my marriage being healed. Lord I wait for You to heal my marriage in Your perfect timing. Thank You, Lord for RMM for teaching us to wait and pray!” (Florida) 
“My grandmother is a mentor. When my husband left, I thought of her fortitude when her husband died during the Depression. She was pregnant and had four young children. They lost their house provided by his job. The farm she started with the insurance money failed. They did not have enough food, clothes, or medical care. She drove the family to another state and started over. She kept the family strong and they grew up to be strong people; three of them put themselves through college. Then, she raised a granddaughter and later a grandson. She was a parent until she was 80. If she could do all that, I can deal with raising two children on my own for this season! I think about what she would have done. I know I have a strong single mom ancestor who raised her children successfully under trying circumstances, and so I am strong too. She never remarried, though she could have. She was always faithful to her husband even after death. Her faith was very important to her.”  Happy Mother’s Day  (California)
"It's been many seasons since God has blessed the restoration of our marriage. I was totally shocked when my wife was gone one day. God led me to your ministry and with the help of another program, God showed me what I was doing wrong in my marriage. My wife tried to push my buttons and saw the change God had made in me. I was surprised when she came home. That is when the standing really starts. God restored not one but two marriages."  (Pennsylvania)
"The Lord has moved behind the mountain and I am seeing His works on this side. After months of no contact, my prodigal has made an effort to be with our family." (Virginia)
"I have found myself content with the idea of giving up on my marriage and moving on with my life. Evidently God still has other plans. I received a call from my father-in-law last week in need of my help on a job. We haven't seen each other or spoken in a year. He invited me over to discuss the work, then I visited him and my mother-in-law. God's timing is perfect. Over the past couple months I had grown very weary. Thank You, Jesus." (North Carolina)
“I just wanted to give a quick praise report. Last night my husband and I were talking and he mentioned he had spoken to the OW that he was involved with about something not related to our situation. I stopped, took a deep breath, and said that I wished he wouldn't contact her. No crying, no blame, just a simple request. He said okay. God is good. All the time. He is repairing the breach. It's already done. I'm just seeing the manifestation of it more and more each day. Praying and standing for healed marriages everywhere. Thank You Jesus. All the glory to God.”  (North Carolina) 
“Praises to Jesus, the King of Kings! My husband came home yesterday after two years of living away from home. My suddenly truly happened. There were so many individuals discouraging me from standing and praying for my prodigal husband. Thank you RMM, as I have learned to ‘zip my lips’ and I have grown so much spiritually. Please do not give up praying ever, until your spouse is back home. My husband sent me a text message yesterday, stating he loved me very much and he wanted to make our marriage work. I will continue to pray for you all and Jesus will do the rest. Never give up hope.”  (United Kingdom)
"The last few months I have been feeling down and angry. Many a time I wanted to give up. Today my divorced husband arrived from the United States. He had traveled half way around the world to visit me in Australia. Thank You, Lord, that You're faithful even when I am not." (Australia)
"I hurt my knee bad. I have always had problems with it. But now it is bad. On Sunday, my wife picked up the children from our home. This morning I got an email from her saying she noticed me limping and asked me what was wrong and if I was alright. The Lord is working in her heart and in our marriage." (North Carolina)
“God has finally manifested His promise. After several years of standing, my marriage has been restored. At times, I never thought I would have a testimony such as this, but we serve a mighty and faithful God. To all the standers out there, keep trusting God. He will deliver on His promises. When it looks darkest, press on because He will surely reward you for your faithfulness and obedience. My husband loves God again and it is so evident by the way he treats me. I know God has done a mighty work in him. Our God stepped in and performed a miracle in us. We are best friends again and our love is stronger than ever. I will stand with God for the rest of my life. Thanks Rejoice Marriage Ministries for sharing God's Word and encouragement.” (Tennessee) 
"I asked God to arrange for me to see my husband if it was His will. I had mail for my husband, but really wanted a sign from God that He wanted me to take it to my husband. When I went to the store, my husband was driving in from the other direction. I talked to him in the store, then took his mail by afterwards. Wait patiently for the Lord." (Arkansas)
"I sought the Lord and He heard my cries. My husband returned to our family after being gone for months and living with the other woman. I give all the praise and glory to Jesus who does answer prayer." (Texas)
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21 
"What a week it has been. A pay raise, bills altered, cash pushed through the door with my name, contact with husband and a promise from God that He will remove what needs removing." (United Kingdom)
"After my spouse and I separated, I took my wedding dress to a consignment shop to get rid of bad memories. It took two years to sell. By then I was regretful I had let it go because I was then standing for restoration. God was bigger than my mistake. One day I went into that same consignment shop. I had just told my prayer partner that I needed a sign that my marriage would be restored. I turned around and realized I was standing right in front of my wedding dress. God confirmed that he can restore anything." (Kentucky)
"Today is my wedding anniversary and I have a lot to rejoice about. My husband is home and we are celebrating together. The Enemy came in and tried to have his way and that's when I found your website and I am standing ever since. Although my husband never physically left, God brought his heart home and today we can celebrate each other. God has been so good and so faithful to us. What a great big God we serve." (New York)
"My husband and I woke early this morning. We held hands in front of a warm fire. It's Christmas morning and our teenagers are still in bed. This scene should not be happening. We almost let satan steal our precious family. My husband came home a few years ago after filing for divorce. God has healed and restored our marriage. He taught me how to stand and pray for my marriage. He showed me how to change my bad attitudes and let Him change my husband. All that we went through has made us closer and now I stand in prayer for marriages." (Arizona)
“For many, many years I have prayed that my ex-husband would come back into our lives. After divorce, he moved to another state hundreds of miles away. He hasn't seen our children or met our granddaughters. He's missed our daughter's marriage, births, holidays, birthdays, etc. Suddenly, he called to ask if it would be okay if he would drive down on his vacation to see all of us. God has been working behind the scenes for a long time. Our prodigal will be here for my birthday, too, and all the glory is God's. I can't wait to see what God will do next as His timing is perfect.”  (Florida)
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.  Psalm 119:105 
"After a few months of no communication my husband called me to take him to work. When I picked him up, he changed his mind and said he was not going in because he was tired. He didn’t want to go back home to the other woman. He chose to spend the time with me. He also revealed that within the last few weeks he got saved, joined the church he goes to with the other woman and got baptized. God is moving. Thank You Jesus." (Georgia)  (PS from Pompano - This should encourage every stander who is concerned because their spouse attends church with another person.)
Joshua said to the Israelites, “Come here and listen to the words of the LORD your God.”  Joshua 3:9 
"My husband has finally come home for good. He has been home for a few months and I know that God is going to finish the work He started." (Georgia)
“Praise God! My husband spent Thanksgiving with us and it was such a blessed time, our best Thanksgiving ever! He also came over and we decorated our tree together and he is going to spend Christmas with us. God is great and so awesome and so faithful. Keep praying, seeking, and pressing into God. He is not a man, He does not lie He fulfills His promises to His people, take heart, have faith and believe.”  (Ohio) 
“Last Sunday I wrote in my journal that by the next Sunday morning I was giving a testimony in church. I had had the most challenging week. Yet I am trusting God. I am looking to the heavens for God’s restoration. My God told me to take my husband flowers. The Lord gave me Micah 7:19 to share at my testimony. Nobody knew I was talking about my husband. One day there will be another testimony. God moved in the power of His Spirit last Sunday in my church. He moved in my husband, too, because he called suddenly and asked if I would like to go to work with him . Praise the Lord!"  (England)
“God is working mightily in our lives. The Holy Spirit gave me the insight to fast for 40 days. As my fasting is progressing, I can see changes in my thought process and am able to hear His voice more clearly. God is greater and only He can and will heal our soul wounds. I can see little things in my husband that is God's way of telling me that He is changing him. I know for sure that my suddenly is just about to happen for God's glory. But even before my marriage is restored, I pray that God touches my husband's heart and gives him His salvation. We are more than a conqueror in God. Don't give up. God bless every stander and may all our ‘suddenlies’ happen very soon. Amen.”  (Indiana) 
“Today I received in the mail my divorce decree. It hurts so much knowing that it is official, that my husband has moved on. I could not cry but only a minute before God was telling me He was still in control. The tears just stopped and I felt better instantly. My faith has not waivered at all. I know that God has my life in his hands and this is ALL for my good. God has already restored my marriage; I’m just waiting for the knock on the door. PTL! I read in the archives something that Bob had said about Tony Evans. 'He said that it did not matter what city hall said, God says we’re married for life.' As usual Bob made my hurt go away and the belief come back. I thank you all at RMM for giving me so much HOPE!” (Missouri) 
Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”  Matthew 21:21-22 (NLT) 
So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.”  Genesis 22:14 
“Thank you Rejoice Ministries for encouraging us to stand. Since I subscribed to this site, my decision to stand is yielding positive results. I receive daily confirmation from God that I made the best decision for my marriage. I want to praise and thank God for the Christmas gift I asked for. A few days after Christmas I texted my husband to make arrangements for our kids and he surprised me by wishing me a belated Christmas message and a blessed new year. He has never acknowledged any important days since the separation. I know the devil is saying this means nothing, but I know that this is God's assurance that He is still working on our marriage and the pending divorce is canceled forever in the mighty name of Jesus and the restoration is imminent. Glory be to God.”  (South Africa) 
“I have been standing on a promise of God for a job in my husband's city for several months. Tuesday I got the email stating I would not be considered for the job but was given 5 other options around the country. Still fasting and praying, a couple hours later I left work to get a glass of tea and seek God. When I left out the back gate at the stop light, a Covenant Transport truck passed by at just that moment. I rarely see transfer trucks on this back road, much less a one of those! I burst into tears asking God what he was trying to tell me! A friend said, ‘He's saying it's not over yet!’ God gave me Daniel 3:28. He can change the word of the king, or in this case, my superiors!”  (Georgia) 
"My prodigal has attended church since Easter, talked with me about the sermons, and we prayed together for him to understand God's sovereignty. He took us to get ice cream and he and I watched two movies together, alone for the first time since he left months ago. He keeps coming back for longer periods of time and for more conversation the more I listen and zip my lips. Praise God!"  (Guatemala) 
“In my disobedience to both the Lord and my husband throughout our marriage, my Husband had enough and finally left. The Lord straight away took me to task and started a deep and painful restoration work within me. I was fighting Him for a good few months! However, He has showed me my sin, delivered, healed and set me free from many things. The other night I was in repentance and crying before God about something else He was showing me. His presence, mercy and grace was upon me. He spoke to me gently, and said, 'I will be bringing Him home to You.' Since then the anger and hatred towards my husband is subsiding. Instead I feel peace and a gentle knowing. Now I must prepare myself to be the wife I was created to be and allow the Lord to do His work. Amen!” (United Kingdom)
“PTL. Even though I am in the process of relocating from Ghana back to America with my daughter, the Lord has started working His miracle in my marriage. My husband allowed me to cook for him and serve him. God is amazing. He makes all things beautiful in His time. There is still more work to be done but I know that  with God, nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37. God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Numbers 23:19 (KJV)  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: John 11:25 (KJV)Thank You Lord.”  (Ghana)
“After five months of the Lord restoring our marriage, he blessed me with an amazing birthday gift. We are expecting our third baby! I can’t praise the Lord enough for all He has done in our lives. I feel honored to carry a child that belongs to God, and raise this child to one day be part of God’s kingdom. God has an eternal purpose for our lives; He wants a family of many children like Jesus (Romans 8:29). It’s a blessing having a restored marriage to glorify His name, and now a baby to raise for His glory. Thank You Lord!”  (Massachusetts)
"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
“I have been fasting and crying out to Jesus. I gave it all to Him, but asked, ‘Lord I don’t want anything that is not in your time, but Father have mercy on my broken heart. If it is Your will and time, O Lord please bring my bride back. If it’s not Your time then I'll deal with it, just have mercy, O Father, on my heart.’ That night I must have woken up ten times frantically looking for my phone, and I didn’t even know why, but I never found it. I woke up in the morning and I felt God telling me to go get my phone right now, so I did. When I looked at it I saw that I had a text from my wife. She said that she didn’t know what to do anymore. She knew what she was doing was wrong and that I am her husband and she loves me with all of her heart. She said that she wanted me to come home! I immediately broke down and began to cry and praise the Lord. Praise the Lord for all of His power and majesty, as well as His mercy and grace. I know we still have a long road ahead of us to full recovery, but the Lord will get us through! Thank You my Lord and Savior, my rock and my refuge, I love You Jesus!”  (California)
“The saying goes that it is darkest before the dawn. In my years of standing, never has the outlook appeared or seemed so bleak. Yet, there is so much light in my life now. So many blessings. More peace than I ever imagined possible even though the enemy's attacks keep coming. My God is holding me tight and using people like you to help me on this path. Thank you for your powerful, effective and encouraging prayers. I fully expect my miracle to be when I least expect it. My prayer this Christmas is that God might reveal to me one marriage being healed that I have prayed specifically for. So many people need Jesus!”  (Tennessee) 
“Praise be to God for His faithfulness. I went through a period where I could not pray for my marriage, only my husband's salvation even though I had received several clear messages early in my stand that my marriage would be restored. One week before the final hearing on our divorce, the judged stepped off the case due to personal reasons. I took that as a clear message God was keeping His promise even when I was too overwhelmed to fight. I began praying for God's right hand and strong arm to be against a new court date being set and six weeks later the court has not yet set a new date! I am completely humbled by God's mercy; He showed me He will keep His promise, but if I give up or make a weak stand, I will miss the spiritual growth of learning to be a prayer warrior for my family. He doesn't need my prayers to accomplish His purpose for my family; He wants my prayers to accomplish His purpose for my life.”  (Indiana) 
“Praise You Jesus! A few days ago my prodigal husband spoke to me from his heart for the first time in over a year. He let me know that his life was not happy and that he knew the relationship with the OW has NO future, that he is just waiting for the right moment to end it. But what he doesn't know is that the one who is removing the OW is my Lord who is in complete control and knows exactly when to do things. Standers, please only hear the voice of the Lord, keep praying and believing because our miracle will come suddenly! Thank You Jesus!”  (Florida)
Our Lord moves mountains PTL. After a year and a half separation my prodigal is home. The devil led him astray to another woman and he hardened his heart and ears to the Lord. The Lord promises us that His Words do not return void. The Lord finds His lost sheep and while I let go and let God, always in prayer, God also found me and rebuilt me then opened my husband's ears and softened his heart and showed him the deception that Satan had blinded him with. Our God is an amazing God. Praise and Glory to Him, never give up. Allow God to move the mountain and fill your heart and your prodigal's heart because what He did for me He'll do for you. Amen."  (Florida)
“I was feeling unattractive, knowing the other women are much younger. I began to doubt he'd have reason to return. Suddenly he called, ‘Would I like a summer dress?’ Bewildered yet I was able to zip the lips and not ask why or where it came from. I said yes, though wondered if it would fit me. The dress is incredible. It is an evening gown, for a formal occasion. It is silk and full length. It does, of course, fit so well! As I stood in front of my mirror I was completely stunned. It's the sort of dress I'd never have bought myself. I remembered his words as he gave it to me - I thought of you. And I sensed God say - this is how he sees you. This is how attractive you are to him still. Tears flowed as I thanked God who is able to do more than we can ask or imagine. Standers, I was so wrong to doubt. Don't second guess what your prodigal is thinking, no matter what he says or does. We just don't know all that is going on in their hearts. Only God knows and His is the voice I will listen to now! Trust Him.”  (United Kingdom) 
"I had not seen my husband for a month when He came over to sign tax papers. The Lord told me to not tell him about how much we owed, but to just get his signature. I did what the Lord told me. After he signed the papers, he stayed and visited with me. We even laughed and he thanked me for getting the taxes done. I know God is softening his heart." (Arizona)

Praise the Lord, my husband came home. He wants to work on our marriage and for the first time in years has asked me what I need for him to do to show me he loves me. I am so grateful to God. Nothing short of a miracle from God brought him back to me. (Kentucky)

"It had been a while since I specifically prayed for God to bless me financially. Ever since I prayed that, God has brought students into my life who needed private tutoring. The extra money helped pay for unexpected home and car repairs. I asked God recently for a regular tutor job and praise God, I will be tutoring on a regular basis. I was hired by my former boss who I did not get along with. God restored that relationship. I know that God is moving." (Indiana)
“Yet if there is an angel on his side as a mediator, one out of a thousand, to tell a man what is right for him,  to be gracious to him and say, ‘Spare him from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom for him’—  then his flesh is renewed like a child’s; it is restored as in the days of his youth. He prays to God and finds favor with him, he sees God’s face and shouts for joy; he is restored by God to his righteous state.” Job 33:23-26 
“I just have to give my Lord Jesus Christ praise for what He has been doing in my prodigal’s life! I have been praying lately for good communication, for walls of silence to be broken due to lack of communication and for God to soften my spouse’s heart and my God has blown me away! My spouse randomly texted me asking me to do a favor for her and even wants to let me borrow a book she is reading! I think she might have even flirted with me! This is coming from someone whose heart was so hard she wouldn’t even talk to me or acknowledge me when she saw me! Keep believing, praying, and fasting Standers! God is listening, answering your prayers, and working on the other side of your mountain even when things seem so bleak and hopeless! These mountains have to melt like wax before our Lord. Nothing is impossible for our God!”  (Tennessee) 
“Our Lord Jesus is really the only answer. After I posted our October court date on your Court Page and after we fasted and prayed, my husband dismissed the divorce without prejudice and our court date has been canceled. The devil is a liar. I give all the praise to the Lord Almighty!! HE is who HE says HE is. Thanks also to Rejoice Marriage Ministries and to all the standers and prayer warriors who prayed for us. We will continue to pray. To all my friends  and standers I say: ‘The battle is the Lord’s.’"  (Georgia) 
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." I Corinthians 1:18
