"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)
“PTL. God spoke to me this very night. I went to church to pray for my in-house prodigal and God put this on a prayer: ‘take their hearts of stone and give them hearts of flesh,’ just as I learned from RMM. And later a scripture came to me: Luke 10: 41-42. ‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.’ I am Martha, worrying about the circumstances and God telling me the only thing that matters is to remain in His Word and pray! Thank You Lord for letting me hear You! To God be the glory!”  (Costa Rica) 
“My father-in-law is an artist and he gave a painting to his brother who managed to mislay it on his way home. The painting turned up several weeks and several states away and the only ID was the artist's signature. The painting was sent back to my father-in-law in a very damaged condition. With the help of a friend and the use of bondcrete, the painting is almost restored to original, just requiring some touch up work. I feel that God is telling me, my husband and my marriage will be returned and restored in the same mysterious way. I will never stop praying. "I have called you by name, you are mine" Isaiah 43:1.” (Australia) 
“I would just like to give my God my most heartfelt praise. My own father passed into Heaven several years ago and I miss him, especially through my marriage struggles. But God is good. My in-laws live in my neighborhood and throughout this entire stand, they have been there for my children and me. My father-in-law does not take sides and, just as the father in the parable of the prodigal son, he is not going after his son but keeping watch knowing the Lord will send him home. I am blessed. Thanks be to God!”  (Illinois) 

“PTL! After many months of separation, ignorance, and threats of divorce from my husband, out of the blue, he came to spend New Year’s Eve with me! We had an amazing conversation and I was pleased to hear that he had taken a look at and has begun to own up to his own wrongs through our marriage and was no longer solely blaming me! He told me that this was a positive move in the right direction for us and was very loving. My walk with Our Lord through this time has been life changing! Being an advocate of standing for my marriage had many looking at me as though I were crazy, but I followed exactly what the Lord has told me to do - to keep standing with love and kindness. My husband mentioned this great change in me and I can see how my walk with the Lord is inspiring him. The Lord kept asking me if I was ready this whole holiday season and I said "YES!" Now we are taking it slow and on the mend. I am giving the Lord all of His due glory!”  (Pennsylvania) 

"Last Sunday I was on my way home to Florida. I listened to the Rejoice Marriage Ministries conference call and it filled my spirit with faith and confirmation of my stand, when all of a sudden I looked out the window and I saw a Covenant Transport truck. This was God confirming once again my stand for my husband. I look forward to his return home. Thank You, Jesus." (Florida)
"I've been standing for a few years. Last year my husband had a child with his new partner. Days ago he texted me to tell me she is moving out, a necessary step in the restoration of our family." (Canada)

"I give Jesus all the praise because my husband is almost moved back in. Most of his belongings are back in the house and he is selling his apartment furniture. I continue to believe that his heart will move spiritually back home to Jesus as well. Nothing is impossible with God." (Canada)

“A breakthrough brought my prodigal and I together in person at an event we both attended for different reasons, and even though we live thousands of miles apart from one another. ‘What God has joined, let no man separate.’ I know God is doing a great work even though I cannot see everything on the other side of the mountain. Healing is here. Praise God! Thanks to God. I am so thankful for how much my faith and strength have grown this past year. I am praying for all standers and prodigals. I'm linking my arm with all of yours in prayer and fasting. Love and peace to you.”  (Arizona) 
“Yesterday, my oldest son and I had a heart-to-heart talk about life, covenant marriage, how God works and IS working, and about my wife, his mother. I love hearing my son's thoughts and ideas and his conversation about seeking the Lord. It hasn't been like this, recently, but God is moving and transforming hearts and lives. The enemy will not have my family. God has given promise after promise. Praise His Holy Name!”  (Washington) 
"Our divorce was days away. All we had to do is sign the papers and make it final. During the past months, my faith in Jesus has grown 1000%. I began to pray for the restoration of my marriage. Along the way, Jesus has shown me myself. Not only did I need to pray and trust, I also had to live my life according to Jesus. When I did that, and really changed, my prayers were answered. My husband and I are going to stay together and work on the marriage.  Our walk with Jesus is only beginning and I am so excited."  (Ohio)
“Merry Christmas everyone. I had a hard time deciding today which testimony to submit. Yes, I am stander; some days are better than others. I fail sometimes, God picks me up , dusts me off, and we keep going. But more than justice and restoring our marriage, God has truly changed my life. He has made my entire life a testimony. This year we are celebrating the true meaning of Christmas at our home. We have received the greatest gift ever given, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This past week, we were running errands and our youngest daughter said to the cashier,‘It’s Jesus' birthday!’So, from my home to yours, may you all have a wonderful Christmas, have many breakthroughs, and may all your prayers be answered!”  (Illinois) 
"Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well." 3 John 1:2
"In that day I will restore David's fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be"  Amos 9:11 
“I am so thankful to our Lord and Savior! He is so faithful to His Words of peace and promises in the midst of our storms. ’Greater is He that is in me than he that is in this world.’ I faced my greatest fear of seeing my husband with the non-covenant wife and instead of it being a horrible event, the peace of God and His presence gave me victory! I attended my husband’s step-mother’s funeral and was embraced by my father-in-law and all of my in-laws, as well as my husband. The Lord strengthened me to initiate contact with and acknowledge the non-covenant with a hug..something I didn’t plan to do until I did it! My son, daughter-in law and grandson prayed I would be alluring to my husband and God was so faithful to answer that prayer! God is faithful and is working on the other side of the mountain when we see nothing! NEVER give up!”  (Oklahoma)
“2013 was an awesome year for us. My spouse blessed us in and out, he took care of our every need although he lives in a foreign country with the OW.  He came by for Christmas, praise be to God. He was talking about God and he had so much love in his eyes. Later he told me he got engaged. But I still praise God because I know my restoration is just around the corner.”  (Namibia)  
“My spouse and I have been reunited for over a year and we are very happy. Recently I have been pressing into God and praying for the salvation of my husband and my family. Two days ago he agreed to come to a church social coffee evening and he met a man that he got on very well with. Yesterday I ran into the OP at the shops and she gave me a very heartfelt apology. I gave her a hug and felt a load lift from us both. Nothing is impossible with God!”  (Australia)

“I am praising God today and every day. My husband and I were remarried Tuesday after five years of separation and divorce. Though my stand was very hard, God never let me give up even when I begged Him. I thank Him that He didn't allow it. Thank you also Bob and Charlyne for your support and prayers.” (Mississippi)

“Praise God for He is good. My wife and I had breakfast yesterday and she hugged me and kissed me for the first time in three years. I have been standing for our marriage reconciliation since she left. Prayer does work, God has been with me and our children. She told me as she was hugging me that I should not be worried; soon we will be back together and when we do we will have to do a wedding. She told me she still has her wedding ring. I have never had such a happy day in my life. Jesus is King. I will praise HIM all days of my life.” (South Africa)

"Nothing is too difficult for our God. I had the privilege of having a restored marriage, but I stopped standing soon after and my prodigal left home again. I kept looking at the circumstances, but God was working behind the scenes. I thank the Lord that I am seeing my prodigal’s heart

"My wife left months ago, and I found your website about the same time and began my stand. In recent weeks we have had no contact whatsoever. I have been praying and fasting for God to show me what He is doing on the other side of the mountain. The last 24 hours I have spent time with my wife and been able to hug her and share the word of God with her. We are in a real spiritual battle, but I am seeing the mountain beginning to come down and am standing for victory in the name of Jesus." (Australia)
“I’m writing this with tears rolling down my cheeks. They are not tears of sadness but joy to know that my Heavenly Father loves me so much. He waited so long to have a relationship with me. I cannot earn or I don’t deserve His grace and mercy. But because of His great love for me (us), I’m here to serve Him with all my heart. Daily bible study/praying with my children has drawn us closer to God. I give Him all the glory, honor and praise. Just know that help is surely on its way; don’t give in. Keep on moving through these storms and soon enough you’ll find the door. Just don't give up! Revelation 3:8.”  (Ohio) 
"My husband's and my friendship is stronger. He and I are in business together. He told me that I am his partner and that I am his agency. What a faithful, mighty God we serve." (Ohio) 
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:18 
"My husband kept our child so I could attend a meeting after work. On the way home, I was nervous and began to pray intensely. I glanced up and saw a church sign that read 'Rejoice God is in control. Better times ahead.'" (Tennessee)
"I thank God that I have Him in my life. My husband and I haven't talked to each other in months. My attorney said my husband asked him if he was divorced yet and the attorney told him no. Each time I remove my wedding ring, the Lord directs to put it back on." (Connecticut)
"I have been standing in God's name for my marriage restoration. Last month my husband started calling more and coming to see me. We have been to dinner and the movies. I thank God that He is bringing my husband back to Himself and back to me. Standing, praying and fasting does work. God has done a remarkable work in me." (Georgia)
“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)
"When my husband left he was cursing God and said he would never put foot in a church again. After the divorce he stopped all communication with me. Last month he called me suddenly and told me God's been working on his heart and he's going to church again." (New Jersey)
"Our divorce became final a few weeks ago. I was hurting very badly. I prayed to God to heal my hurting heart. At church a lady came up to me and said God had told her to pray for me." (Alabama)
“I watched a program that showed a man who fasted for 40 days. On the last day of his fast, there was a mini earthquake. I decided to fast for 40 days. During my fast I prayed to God about my stand. The last day of my fast I had my own mini earthquake. Out of the blue my husband called and asked me what was I doing. He then asked to come over. We talked and watched a movie. Thank You God for showing me that You are still working on the other side of the mountain!”  (Kentucky)  
"I thank God for where He has brought me from. I remember the torment and fear when I started my stand because I felt so hopeless. God walked me through each day as I learned to trust Him for all things. I have such peace walking with my Father everyday." (Virginia)
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”  Isaiah 43:2
"I am grateful and thankful to the Lord for allowing me the opportunity to be a witness of His faithfulness. There been so many things that God has done. I just want to share a few. It is going on three years that my husband has been back in my life. He has been to church with me and he is helping me with my college courses. We have spent some time together and are in business together which God is blessing. I still believe that we will legally be remarried in God’s time and all glory will go to God.”  (Ohio)
“PTL. I wasn't going to post a testimony until the full restoration of my marriage but I just have to share what God is doing and showing me. During my stand, I have come close to quitting more than once but God has not allowed me to do that. The closer I try to get to God the more He is showing me that He hates divorce and that He does have the power to save and restore my marriage. Back when my spouse and I first broke up, I had fallen away from church and was living a lukewarm life. God allowed this to happen, knowing that I would pray to Him after hitting rock bottom. As God is showing me how to forgive my spouse and love her unconditionally, I’m starting to see how this stand is being used for His glory. During this time God is drawing me close to Him and He will do the same for you.” (Florida)
“My husband is an in-house prodigal. He had said he would never come back, that God couldn't make him come back home, yet here he is. I see God softening his heart towards me as well. I know that in God's perfect timing our marriage will be restored. God brought my husband home when my faith and heart was ready. I know that as long as I continue to trust God and lean into Him, that I'll soon be giving a testimony of a restored marriage. Praising God for all I can and can't see.” (Georgia)
"I was struggling in my relationship with God, His promise for marriage restoration and financial breakthrough. The fear of being disobedient to my Heavenly Father gripped my heart. I kept pressing on one day at a time. God spoke to me all this time and slowly turned me back to Him. This morning I dreamed my husband put on his wedding band and came home. For nothing is impossible with God." (Wisconsin)
"I would like to praise the almighty God for bringing my husband home last year during Easter. My dead and impossible marriage was resurrected with Jesus Christ. Standers please do not give up; our Lord is able to resurrect dead marriages if we believe in Him." (Tanzania)
"I called out to the Lord and received an answer this past weekend. We got a chance to speak and hug. God is so faithful." (Louisiana)
“I praise God for His miracles in my home! After so many years of standing and praying for God's best in the healing of my broken, divorced marriage, He has (very suddenly) brought my wife's heart full circle back to our relationship and love. We are spending so much time together and with such kindness and acceptance and peace. Even a few months ago things were difficult. But the speed of God's hand these past few weeks has been overwhelming at times! He is bringing us back to ‘falling in love’ again. Praise Him! He only does wonderful things! (Psalm 136:4) And He is teaching us to trust Him alone. Thank you, RMM, for leading us all to know Jesus' love that never fails!”  (Oregon) 
“Thank you for the Courtroom prayers! Our trial was delayed! God has seen me and the children through this. I am very weary, but God removed the burden of going to trial. I asked God to simply erase the date and make it disappear because I was exhausted and did not have time to prepare. He smiled and answered! There is a new judge and I see it as an arrangement by God to go along with the new attorney He found me. I know He handpicked the man who will decide for our family. Thanks be to God!”  (California) 
“My wife was granted her divorce through the legal world on the same day as our five year anniversary. At one point in my life, I knew I would not be able to make it through that day. God was with me in that courtroom. I was able to walk out of there smiling and praising the Lord for this. To praise Him in the bad times before never worked with me. This was the single most significant thing that the enemy could have used to finish me but with God's love, that did not happen; the enemy did not take me down. Now let’s see what happens from here.”  (Tennessee)
“God is so great. The other day my ex-wife called me crying and said her hot water heater was leaking bad. She said she did not know who else to call, so she called me. I went by and fixed it for her. We were able to talk a little. She told me I was a good man. God is working great wonders. Thank You Lord for the time You gave me. Amen.”  (Tennessee)
"My spouse spent Christmas day with our kids and me. I was thrilled to see that when we woke up Christmas morning, he was on the couch sleeping. He even sat down at the table with us for dinner. He hasn't done that in over a year. I know that even when I don't see it, the Lord is working on our behalf. I will bless the Lord." (Michigan)
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.  James 5:16 
Return to your fortress, O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.  Zechariah 9:12 
“I just want to publicly thank God for what He has done for my family this week. God has orchestrated circumstances to separate my husband from the non-covenant person! My husband had to leave for a deployment to the Middle East this past weekend. God arranged it so that my husband would have to leave from the very same base where we met! Although I was discouraged because it has been so long since I've seen my husband. I wanted to be able to tell him that I loved him, but was unable to do so. God allowed me to see this situation for what it was. He showed me that this was the parting of the Red Sea! I KNOW that God is going to use this time to speak to my husband and I believe that He IS going to meet with my husband ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS!” (Virginia) 
“Two Sundays ago while going to church, a bit before the church exit, I asked God to show me a Covenant Transport truck. I have been here for almost four years now and have never seen one. Right before I took the exit, two taxicabs passed me on each side at practically the same time. One was an ‘Alliance’ cab and the other a ‘United.’ I thought, ‘Here is what I asked for loud and clear.’ This past Sunday coming up to the same exit, I again was passed by the same two taxicabs. I choose to believe that God is speaking to me loud and clear. Thank You Lord.”  (Louisiana)
