"I asked God to show me the work being done in my husband. This week my husband called me." (Pennsylvania)
"My situation is dire and there are severe legal issues that exist as a mountain between me and my family. A crucial court date was set for the next week and my prayer warriors and I have been keeping it before God. My attorney had told me not to expect any more continuances...But God arranged it otherwise! This last continuance puts all of this in a very positive light and it is so unexpected that I know it is the direct hand of God Almighty. I cannot express the praise due our Lord God. Never, never lose hope. Never give up." (Arkansas)
"My husband calls almost every day saying how sorry he is. When I came home from work last night there was big box waiting for me at my door. It was a gift from my husband. I know that God is a restorer and He is working on our behalf even now. God is good." (Louisiana)
"My husband came home last weekend to visit our infant son after many months and we have taken that first step towards reconciliation. He will be home in a few weeks and with God as the foundation, we will rebuild what Satan tried to steal." (Texas)
“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) 
"Last month my husband decided to seek help for his addiction. Yesterday I took him to a rehab center for drugs and alcohol. He will be gone for six weeks. I praise God for His faithfulness. I continue to be a Proverbs 31 wife, seeking the Lord through it all, turning only to Him for my strength and peace.” (Canada)
"My husband has been home for over a year. He had a child with the other woman. Before he was home I prayed to God about the promise He gave to Sarah and Abraham about a son. Soon after my husband's return I was pregnant. We now have a healthy baby boy. His birth has had a part in helping our marriage heal and grow. We also have the other child in our lives, which has also been a tremendous blessing to me. God is faithful." (Washington)
“We were supposed to have our final mediation next month. I prayed, crying and asking God if there was any way to save our marriage to please just stop the divorce. The next day I was talking to my husband on the phone about the kids, and he said out of nowhere that the divorce was being put on hold for a while because he does not have the money. Additionally, he has been much nicer to me since our last hearing and we have even talked aside from discussing the kids and have had some laughs. I've got the Stander's Affirmation taped to my computer so that while I'm working I can read it and remember to focus on the Lord and not the situation. What a peace He has brought to my life despite all else. Be encouraged fellow standers!”  (Florida) 
"My wife came to church last Wednesday for the first time in a while. After church she and I talked. The next day we met and spent hours together. We are talking, seeing each other and starting over as friends to see where the Lord takes us. Praise God." (Arizona)
“Praise the Lord. God is so great and is always on time. Lately it has been harder than ever for me to see that, but this week I got an answered prayer in the mail. I submitted a court date for divorce in prayer and my court date was postponed for almost another month. I don't know why but I know God is in the midst and He is doing great things. I just continue to pray and thank God for speaking to my spouse and this mountain that is between my husband and I right now. I continue to look for God's great work and miracles. They happen every day. Thank You Lord.”  (Georgia) 
“‘For nothing is impossible with God.’ Luke 1:37 Our almighty God brought my husband home. Three weeks prior to this joyful event, God talked to me through the scripture in 1 Chronicles 17:25-27. We serve a faithful God. He is true to all His promises. Our family is a living testimony of God’s mighty power. You will give us one heart and one way so that we may fear you forever, for the good of us and our children after us. (Jeremiah 32:39) Praise the Lord! My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion. Psalm 71:24 My fellow standers…never, ever give up! Our God will unfold before your eyes His mighty plans for your marriage and family.” (California)
"My husband has been in the far country for months. In the last couple weeks he's become more communicative. Yesterday in an email he referred to reconciliation and the possibility of a future together. A couple weeks ago he stated he was never coming back. I see evidence of my prayers every day. I am so grateful to God for bringing Charlyne and Bob's loving support into my stand." (Wisconsin)
“There is not enough room to tell all that has happened in the past year, but my divorce is canceled. On the day of my divorce, which I had submitted to the court page, my husband told me he was canceling the divorce. This summer I told my lawyer I didn't want a divorce and she said ‘This is going to happen.’ I said not if God has something to do with it. When we walked over to court, my husband’s lawyer had a hand written dismissal. The reason given, ‘Parties have Reconciled.’ The judge asked if any promises had been given and I said yes, God promised me he would restore my marriage! Many times I felt I couldn't make it one more day the pain was so great. But God! His promise to me was Jeremiah 33:10-12.” (Ohio)
“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)
“I just found out my spouse took me off our car insurance policy in June. I’ve been driving the car and PTL He kept me safe. I emailed my spouse about this and he called me a few days later to ask if I had gotten insurance. We haven’t talked since May. This conversation went well. If my spouse had never canceled my insurance, he would not have called me. He was able to see another side of me he has never seen. All because he canceled my insurance. PTL!” (California) 
"I am learning to trust God more and more. When I cry out to the Lord He never forgets about me, He always sends an encouraging word to strengthen my walk with regard to my marriage." (Maryland)

“Even after my husband divorced me, I continued to send a Christmas card to his parents every year, along with Mother's Day and Father's Day cards. This year, for the first time since the divorce, I received a card from his mother, with a note. May God be praised.” (New York)

"Praise God! We got an offer on our house. Believing God will push short sale through. While I have been sad to lose our house since my husband and I still own it together, I know that God is in charge. And even though circumstances appear to be impossible, I am standing strong and believe that God is working out all the details so that my husband can come home to me and our children and truly have a fresh start in the suddenly, near future!"  (Florida)
"Praise the Lord, my husband is planning on moving out of the apartment he shared with the other woman and getting a place of his own." (Washington)
“Several months ago, my spouse told me it was time to move on. We did not speak for months after this. One night last month, I could not sleep and spoke to God specifically about my spouse and in the middle of my prayer (at 1 A.M.) my spouse texted that he was praying for me to be well. A few weeks later, I had a really bad day and cried to the Lord into the night and very early the next morning my spouse texted to ask how I was doing. Just last night, out of the blue, my spouse texted me a video with a choir singing ‘Jesus will Work it Out.’Praise the Lord for letting me know that He is definitely working it out!”  (Louisiana) 
"I have been standing for many months and my husband came home this week. There had been no sign of his return. God revealed Himself through answered prayers in a mighty way. My husband came home out of obligation more than love, just as God prepared me. The road ahead will be long as my husband mourns the break- up with the other woman but things are going exactly as God showed me they would. I know He is in control. We serve an awesome God." (Illinois)
“Thank You Lord!.. For all You have done, are doing and will do!. I have been standing for several months. A couple of months ago my spouse mentioned he was no longer with the OW. This was a big deal. I asked the Lord to take care of that and I put my trust in Him to end that relationship. A couple of days after my spouse said that, the Lord has done amazing things in our lives. We have been spending family time and alone time. He has even taken me around his friends again. On Easter Sunday, my spouse told the kids that he and I are going to work things out. I was not expecting that at all. The enemy is coming hard again. But I will NOT give up!. My Lord has promised full restoration and I will hold fast to that promise. I pray that the Lord will continue to give us strength and not to give up!”  (California)
"The Holy Spirit spoke to me saying 'You are still married' only to find out - PTL - that the paper work never went through and my covenant husband and I are still married. Amen! Glory to God Most High."  (South Africa) 
“Even though I did not see my prodigal for Christmas or New Year's, I just want to say that no matter what, we are to trust God. My husband was to take the kids for a few days before Christmas. On that day I got a call from a prayer partner telling me to pack my bags because I am going in Jesus' Name. I did so and I made ready the kids and myself. My husband arrived and packed his van with the kids' things. Then it was time for goodbyes. Suddenly the middle child started crying for me and then my husband told me to get my things. It was miraculous. While at his house for those days he paid me no attention but I was able to zip the lips and at times I caught him looking at me and smiling. I don't know yet why I was there but God will reveal all. Blessings.”  (Jamaica)
"I came home after work one day to a note from my husband telling me that he didn't love me any more and that he had moved out. Somehow God has been working miracles behind the scenes in drastic measure I woke up this morning just before my alarm was going to go off. I had this feeling of someone watching me. I opened my eyes and there was this man staring down at me-my husband! He was crying as he handed me a letter of apology. He said he couldn't say everything out loud without breaking down into tears so he took the time to type it all out for me to read. He asked me if he could come back home again. He said the worst weekend of his life was Thanksgiving weekend and he never wanted to relive that or any other holiday without me and our daughters again. I was in complete shock. God does answer prayer, He does move mountains, and He does it mostly behind the scenes in a way that we aren't even aware of. Thank you God for answering prayer." (Oregon)
“Praise God! The Lord allowed me to see the first evidence of the softening of my unsaved husband's heart. I got a text from him this week that read, ‘I am truly sorry for all the pain I've caused. Have a blessed evening.’ This is a miracle! Hallelujah!”  (Michigan)
“Today I cried out to God to show me some encouragement on my stand. It has been several months since my prodigal left. Less than 30 minutes after I prayed for my beloved to contact me, he called. We spoke on the phone for almost two hours. PTL, God does listen to our prayers. Keep praying and believing. (South Carolina) 
"My prodigal and I have gone from separation and bitter anger towards each other to saying I love you and making plans for our future. Last week my husband received the sad news that his dad had passed away. My heart was later warmed to see my name written as his partner when I read his dad's obituary." (Canada)
"I had a wonderful, uplifting day singing God's praises all through my work day. That evening, Satan stepped in to bring my spirits down. I realized it was a spiritual attack on me and cried out to God to help me. As I was driving down the street, I read a church sign that said, 'Your Father wants to talk to you. Read page 707 in your Bible.' I grabbed my Bible and read that page at the next light. The very short page started with Ephesians 6:13. Thank you, Lord for reminding me to wear the full armor of God. How I laughed and cried and praised my Lord and Savior." (Tennessee)
"My sister, who recently started supporting my stand, returned from a trip. She called and said she needed me to see something. When I got to her house she handed me a picture that she had taken of a car parked in New Jersey. Its license plate said 'Standing.' I wondered if the car belongs to a fellow stander." (South Carolina)
“My marriage, which I was struggling to keep together, reached a place of no return. At least so I thought and I became bitter and had a legal letter drawn up to have my husband vacate our home. He eventually moved out to my great dismay and filed for divorce. As the first hearing date approached, I cried out to God for forgiveness and help. He heard my cry and gave me Psalm 27 which I declared day and night. I contested the divorce and it was dismissed. I was blown away by the goodness of the Lord. I am now a firm stander for marriage restoration after seeing God move so mightily.”  (Trinidad & Tobago)
"I had moved far away from my home state and my children. A year later, while spending time with the Lord, He placed on my heart that my daughter would live with me. That day I wrote God's promise in my journal, not knowing how it would happen. Another year passed when, by the Lord's hand, I moved back to Texas. Today God's vow of my daughter living with me came to pass, as she is at this moment moving into my apartment. I am so awed at how God's hand moved in this situation." (Texas)
“Today I received an Order of Dismissal of the divorce my spouse filed. Praise the Lord I'm still married!"  (North Carolina) 
"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
“Praise the Lord! My husband came and spent the day with our children on Valentine’s day! I am standing for marriage restoration and prayed and wished he would hug me. HE DID! He said he was sorry for putting me through all this. I know God continues to work! AMEN!”  (Alaska)
"My son opened up to his dad for the first time regarding our divorce. My young son, not prompted by me, shared our stand as a family regarding his return to the Lord, then to us, with his dad. My husband called me and I was able to share with him. Praise God, my husband’s 'never to be together' is now 'most likely.'" (Arizona)
Are you having troubles? You should pray. Are you happy? You should sing... If such a prayer is offered in faith, it will heal anyone who is sick. The Lord will heal them. And if they have sinned, he will forgive them. So always tell each other the wrong things you have done. Then pray for each other. Do this so that God can heal you. Anyone who lives the way God wants can pray, and great things will happen. James 13, 15-16 (ERV) 
“Praise God, one of my estranged husband's friends from church just found out about our separation. My husband contacted him out of the blue to say hi. He said he felt led to come alongside my husband to see if he could help him as he and his wife suffered the same situation and were helped by godly men from the church to put their marriage back together. I've been praying that God would build a hedge of thorns around my husband and put people in his life who would guide him back to our family. This friend asked me why I had never said anything to him and I told him that I didn't have to, God took care of it for me! Zipping the lips to everyone but God and God is answering my prayers. Standing and praying for the restoration of our marriage.”  (Idaho) 
A year ago I was desperate. My husband and I were like roommates. I was so sad and angry. I discovered my husband had relationships with other women. We were not living together and planning a divorce. I found Charlyne’s testimony and began to pray. I didn’t want my little girl to be a daughter of divorce. My husband has now returned and I was able to forgive. We have a lot of work to do but with God everything is better. PTL.” (Columbia)
“I give glory to God for all He is doing in my life. The Lord sustains my strength and hope. Whilst going through some old paper work in the house I found a book with my picture on it. My prodigal compiled and wrote the poetry in it which was inspired by his love for me. I knelt down and said a prayer. Barely five minutes later my husband called me PTL! A week later my prodigal drove hundreds of miles to attend our son's school play and spent a few moments with us at home. PTL! The Lord is our Comforter and brings us hope and our source of joy. Rejoice in God's love! He does speak to standers. Restoration is there!”  (United Kingdom) 
"My husband left me and my baby seven months ago. After thinking all was over with my marriage and that it was not worth the fight anymore, I found this website and started my stand three months ago praying and fasting for restoration. We used to fight a lot but after I started to stand everything has changed. Last Sunday in the morning I prayed God that my husband would think of us and would miss his family and some minutes later, I received a text message from him telling me that he would come to visit our baby in the afternoon. He came and we had a very nice afternoon together. I know God is working secretly and will make my husband come back home, I trust and love God more than ever!"!  (Dominican Republic)

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy." Psalm 126:3-5

“Our God is truly a good God, to Him be the glory. I just finished reading the very encouraging Saturday Testimonies and am led to share that, although I see nothing in the natural, I continue to stand on God's promise of restoration. As stated at the Dallas conference and once again confirmed by all the miraculous testimonies, I'm not crazy. God is in the business of restoration, not only of our marriages but, more importantly, of us to Him! Never give up, God will do this!”  (Oklahoma)   
“I can see growth in my stand. This weekend was my anniversary. The first two were a little emotional for me having just started my stand. This one, even though I can't see change on the other side of the mountain, I can see change in me. It happened to come on the Lord's Day this year. Even though I thought about it, I was not emotional or sad this year. I made it through and was able to praise the Lord and enjoy my day. God is faithful to His Word. I thank God for the changes He has made in me.”  (North Carolina)  
"After many months, my husband started coming for my daughter’s track practice three days a week. He sits with us and has dinner with us. Only God could bring my family together this way." (Texas)
“Four days ago I met with my wife after almost two years without seeing her. I brought a gift, we drank coffee and left. Today we met again. I said I still love you, I'm still in love with you, I am waiting for you, no matter how long, I'm waiting on God. I give glory to God for what He is doing. Thank you for this ministry where I found the words I never heard from my friends, family, brothers or pastor. (Venezuela)
“In May, the Lord revealed to me through a dream that my husband would be back in my life after nine months. There was a false start in June, which was very painful, but it was not God's timing. Now, nine months later, our restoration is happening. There are still strongholds of lust, pride, idolatry, fear, and addiction, but God has brought us this far and I know He will continue to deliver us, according to His good purpose. To Christ be all the glory, we are nothing without Him.”  (Florida)  
"To God be the praise and glory. As I continue with my stand God has been using my church family to confirm that He hears my prayers and that He will heal my marriage. Over the past few weeks I have had people, including my Pastor's wife, telling me that God has been speaking to them about standing with me for my husband's salvation and our marriage. My faith has been strengthened." (Botswana)
“My prodigal suddenly stopped all communication with me a couple of weeks ago after having previously spoken to me a couple times a week. I started to lose heart and began to wonder if he was intentionally pulling away from me for good this time. I prayed and asked God to give me a sign that He still wants me to stand for our relationship. A couple of days later, I went to lunch with friends. As I'm waiting to pay the cashier, my eyes are drawn to a framed picture of Christ with the word ‘Covenant’ underneath Him. Praise God! I've been going to that restaurant for lunch nearly every week for four years and have never noticed that picture before! On my computer, there was a quote from Joyce Meyer. It started with ‘God is a Redeemer and a Restorer.’I had specifically prayed for a sign of restoration and here was His answer! Glory be to God! Do not give up, for the Lord does answer prayers!” (Michigan) 
"I prayed for my spouse to come to where I live. God answered my prayer and now I am waiting for God to complete what He started. I have come to learn now that I have not been listening to God. Only after asking God to show me the real enemy I came to discover my behavioral part of the problem. That it is the same behaviors my spouse used to complain about me when we were together. Glory be to God. How much I need to change." (Colorado)
