“I have been praying Malachi 4:6 and Luke 1:17 for some months and now good reports come regularly about my husband's involvement in the lives of our children. He makes more time and meals for them and helps them with homework. I prayed specifically for each child's need in relation to their dad, and it all came to pass this week. On top of that, my prodigal gladly took over the bill for unexpected car repairs, to my pleasant surprise. I hope this testimony will encourage you to support good relationships between children and the prodigal parent. I used to miss my kids when they were away with my husband but now I look forward to spending my time alone, praying for their relationship to get better... and it does. PTL.”  (Canada)  (posted 2/5/2013)
"I have been living with my parents for almost a year and longing for my own home. I started looking at tax auctions. All I have is the 401K I was awarded in the divorce. Tuesday night I opened my Bible at random to Jeremiah 31; 'I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel...Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful.' Wednesday morning I was outbid for the house I wanted. But I stayed until the end of the auction. There was a house left over. I bought it for a minimum bid. God has restored my house and He is working to restore my marriage." (Wisconsin) (posted 10/3/2009)
PTL, for His love endures forever. The Lord brought me to RMM a year after my beloved moved out and entered into a non-covenant marriage. I was broken and started standing, though at that time I didn't know what standing meant. There was a time during my stand that I was ready to give up but I was able to believe that God was really moving the mountain of circumstances before me. My beloved phoned at the beginning of the week after I attended his father's funeral with our daughters. He said he missed me and the girls and wished for us to be a family again. PTL, he is coming to visit us tomorrow.”  (South Africa)   (posted 10/7/2013)
"I was served with divorce papers the day after Christmas. The final hearing was two days after Easter. One week later my husband decided it was wrong what he was doing and wanted to return to his family. My marriage is now restored and we are working towards building a better life with God's grace." (Florida) (posted 11/20/2004)
“My marriage is being restored! My beautiful bride is back and we’ve all been together as a family again for a couple months now. Our situation was the impossible of the IMPOSSIBLE in the world’s eyes, but we know how awesome God is! The joy, love, passion and peace that we have as we rebuild is unexplainable. To God be the glory forever and ever!”  (Arizona) (posted 11/25/2014)
“I have been the prodigal/stander and never realized how much of a prodigal I was myself. I tried to help God along when I was lost myself, BUT GOD! He has opened my eyes and made me see myself as He sees me. I was hindering my blessings although they continued to rain down on me. Now my kids are praying with me as they never have before. God told me this morning that my miracle is right around the corner. I will wait, pray and love unconditionally. Blessed is she who has believed what the Lord has said to her will be ACCOMPLISHED!’ Luke 1:45...BELIEVE!”  (Pennsylvania)  (posted 9/4/2011)
“I am always looking for encouragement from God regarding my stand for my wife. I attended a camp meeting and a missionary spoke about a woman who was the single mother of seven children. Her husband had left her. She found the Lord, and five years later, her husband returned. They began attending church together. One time, his cell phone went off in church. He answered the call to find that it was his mother whom he had not seen in more than 20 years! That’s two remarkable stories about God’s restoration between his people! That was a God-timing, I believe. Why did I hear this encouragement? God may have brought me there just to hear that message.”  (Indiana) (posted 7/31/2014)
It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.  Psalm 18:32 (posted 5/12/2011)

“I was hard-hearted and pushed my spouse out and filed for divorce. God dealt with me and made a way for the divorce to be dismissed two months later. After over a year of my spouse telling me he was not coming home ever, he called on a Sunday morning and asked if I was going to church and if the gate was unlocked. He said he was going to start bringing his things home. Suddenly, just like you say. Praise God, He is working and I have zipped it. God Bless RMM.”  (Washington)

"My son (in the military) is stuck in Kuwait and can’t come home yet because of the volcano in Iceland. I believed I was to pray and ask God to change the direction of the wind and clear a path for him to come home. On the news the next evening was a report that the wind and ash was changing direction. God is good to me." (Oregon) (posted 4/23/2010)
“PTL! My car broke down this week and it was very difficult to get a ride to work. Jehovah Jireh my Provider! I prayed that night and asked the Lord to make a way so that I will have a reliable way of transport. Today I received a verse "Therefore, stop worrying about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”  Matthew 6:34 CEB  So with my terrible credit I went to a car dealership with barely enough money to get groceries, let alone a down payment, and to my surprise I was approved. My God even let me negotiate a lower payment. I got the car with no down payment and no payments for several months! My God also paid for my taxes and license plates! Praise Him! Don't give up standers! Don't worry and trust our God. He will provide!”  (Tennessee)  (posted 2/5/2013)
 "After years of separation my husband and I remarried in January. Everyone told me that he would never change and to go on with my life, but I stood on what God had promised me. Like every couple, we have problems, but not the ones that separated us. I continue to pray for myself and others to hold on and not give up on Jesus. He is the only One who can help us on this road that we are on. I love Him so much."   (Mississippi). (posted 7/13/2006)
“Glory to His name. Jeremiah 33:3. Last week I cried out to the Lord in prayer because I realized that I have been wavering in my faith since my stand began. I realized that my lack of faith was because I had never heard from God about His will for my marriage specifically. I cried out to God and asked Him to confirm for me His will for me and my beloved asCharlyne Cares had said to do. A few days after I committed to praying for this daily, I called my husband's aunt, who lives in another city from me, to see if she had heard from him or if she knew how he was doing. To my surprise she laughed and said she was about to call me as she left church to tell me she was led by God to stand in proxy for me at that evening's service. The service was recorded so she played if for me over the phone. The minister prayed and prophesied about my marriage and confirmed that God ordained my marriage, expects me to obey Him and stand as long as it takes, and that He will bless my obedience.”  (Georgia) (posted 5/9/2014)
“God is faithful to us when we choose to stand on His Word! My husband came home last year but left again. It was a false start but I see God working in his life. I see little miracles every day. There are too many to count! I know my spouse hears the Holy Spirit, just as I've prayed he would. Today he texted me out of the blue and told me he wanted to pay off several of my bills including our children's medical bills. That is a huge miracle! Earlier I had cried out to God for help in paying all of it off, and I very clearly heard God speak to my heart that my spouse would pay it. At the time I thought it impossible because of the horrible circumstances. Well, here it is a year later, and I get the text today saying he would! God is awesome! I am still in awe!” (Texas) (posted 9/19/2014)
“I would like to encourage everyone today, that the God we serve is able to heal your marriage, and restore your family. My husband left me some months ago. He woke me up at 5 a.m. and simply said that he had been unfaithful. He said he wanted a divorce and moved out the same day. I was four months pregnant at that time. Both of us come from Christian families. The months of praying and trusting God were not easy. This Sunday my husband called me and said that he was at church and God spoke to him. He told me we are getting back together, he is flying in for the birth of our daughter, and due to work issues he is moving in with us closer to the summer. He said he loves me. I cannot stop thanking God for His mighty power! Standers, don’t give up! Your miracle is on its way.” (Washington) (posted 10/8/2014)
“God is faithful and always keeps His promises! He is greater than all of our seemingly impossible circumstances. In the natural my marriage is over, BUT GOD, He makes a way when there is no way. My suddenly just happened after over a year of little to no contact, beyond impossible circumstances. In the meantime the Lord has healed me of my bitterness, anger, pain and unbelief. My husband has left the OW and I have been able to help him thanks to God blessing my finances since he's been gone. The Lord has given me visions. There is no need to worry, His timing is perfect. My suddenly did not happen how I thought it would, still I trust His plans for us. He came to church with me for Easter service and gave his heart to the Lord, Hallelujah! I am already thanking Jesus for healing my family and all hurting marriages across the world. Pray, hope and don't worry!”  (Ohio) (posted 4/28/2014)
"Thank you for your ministry resources and especially 'Charlyne Cares', which have sustained me on my darkest days. As a childless stander, I had a long summer of absolutely no communication with my husband. He returned to our home last week to get warmer clothes and asked me out for dinner. I praised God as I opened my 'Charlyne Cares' on the morning of our dinner and read the title, 'Lord, Rekindle and Reignite My Love.' God is so good and He's doing just that. We're making plans to move my husband back home. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (North Carolina) (posted 10/23/2009)
“I was taking one of Charlyne's CDs to a friend's friend because divorce has taken place in their family this year. I was right around the corner from my destination and an SUV cut me off on the road and then decided to make a sharp turn right in front of me. It made me not very happy, but GOD...the license plate said SPOUSES. I just smiled and thanked God with all my heart. NEVER give up and NEVER underestimate what God will do when you least expect it. Speak truth in LOVE. Remember why you stand.”  (Tennessee)  (posted 9/4/2011)
“The day my husband left I prayed to God that my feet shall not be moved from my home, because I had NO income. BUT GOD. I tell you that GOD is faithful when man is not. It has been several years now, and GOD has my husband still paying all my bills in addition to helping us out with money. Praise GOD.”  (Indiana)  (posted 11/19/2012)
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus . Philippians 4:19
(posted 4/25/2011)

"I left my husband and later divorced. I was in a state of depression and everything else the enemy could bring against me. I met someone else, and despite the devastation to my husband and child, I remarried. I was very unhappy and started to seek the Lord for His truth and light. He started to work in my life. Even though I had grown up in church, I never had a personal relationship with Jesus. I was led to your website. I started to pray for God's help. God helped me to leave that marriage and stand for my marriage. My husband met someone else and did not want to be with me. He saw no future for us. For two years I prayed, even though times were tough and circumstances impossible. I saw God start to work on my behalf as I sought Him for my life and my family. My husband and I were remarried a week ago. God is faithful. Thanks and praise to God for all He has done." (South Africa)

“I left my husband after I was so distraught and incredibly stressed. I felt like I couldn't take being married to him anymore. After some months he met me to try to reconcile. After a few months, he left me. This time he had reached his limit. Right now we are still separated, but in this time God has shown me so much about myself. I have learned to let God do the work, to be thankful in all things, to be silent, to wait patiently, to love unconditionally, and to continue to stand in the gap for my husband and pray for restoration. I have learned what it means to have a true covenant. I wanted to give up, but God wouldn't let me. My husband said he filed for divorce and that was a little discouraging, but I still believe God. I believe that God can bring life from the deadest of situations. I pray for my husband every day and I know that God will bring us back together.”  (North Carolina)   (posted 11/18/2013)
"I was traveling home to see family in Pennsylvania. On I-81 I passed a Rejoice Marriage Ministry billboard. My prodigal was also traveling home on the same weekend. I have no way of knowing if he noticed it, but I was praising the Lord we both passed it. What a blessing." (Virginia) (posted 7/11/2008)
This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34:6-8 (posted 3/18/2011)
"But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure. I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone." Psalm 71:14-16 (posted 3/5/2010)
“What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.”  Isaiah 46:11b  (posted 1/29/2012)
“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)  (posted 1/24/2012)
"A couple nights ago I asked the Lord to show me if my husband still cared. I called my attorney. He informed me that I am still married and that time has been pushed back because my husband stopped communication with his attorney. Afterwards I went to a grocery store to get potatoes for dinner. The first potato I grasped was shaped like a heart. God is great." (California) (posted 3/13/2009)
"My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken." Psalm 62:1-2 (posted 1/10/2011)
"This is just a foretaste of what God wants me to testify to. Standers around the world, I had never heard of standing for my marriage before l discovered RMM during an internet search for prayers. I know the Almighty God wanted me to be part of a successful story on marriage restoration and also His marvelous plan for marriage as defined in Matthew 19:6. My broken and wounded heart could handle the pain no more. I was hurt and perplexed. It was tearing our marriage down. But God showed me Exodus 14:14. and Isaiah 48:11. At one point I zipped my mouth and sang songs of praise and thanksgiving to God for His promise. And now l can see signs of victory. My husband is home much earlier and no more calls at late hours. Standers, our God is faithful. I keep on praying for the salvation of my prodigal. God is good.” (Cameroon) (posted 10/23/2014)

"God is working. My covenant spouse, who divorced me, joined me and our children for Easter dinner, coloring eggs, and an egg hunt. I gave each child a copy of our home movies and I also gave a set to my spouse. Before he left he gave me a hug for inviting him and for the DVD." (Maine)

"One year ago the Lord brought my prodigal home. I want to thank Charlyne and Bob for their ministry. I still read their devotionals every day. I can't even begin to tell you how important it is to continue every day to stand and pray for your marriage even after the return of your spouse. The enemy never gives up bringing thoughts back to cause problems. I have to constantly pray and put the devil behind me to rid my mind of the thoughts he tries to bring my way. Praise God for His faithfulness. With Him nothing is impossible." (Georgia) (posted 1/10/2011)
"My prodigal has been home for a week, sleeping on the couch. He has not yet committed to working on our marriage but said he doesn't have plans to go anywhere. Praise God he brought my husband home under the cover of my prayers." (North Carolina) (posted 1/2/2009)
“I have been fasting and praying for my marriage restoration and family's salvation. I have seen God move and defeat the enemy in so many ways because of this. I have been crying out to God about a matter recently and at the end of my prayer the voice of God was clear in my ear and He said ‘The enemy is defeated.’ On that note I went to sleep in peace. I have been experiencing the peace of God in my heart for some time and no matter what the enemy tries, this peace cannot be shaken. The next morning the Holy Spirit gave me Psalm 18 to read which tells how David spoke to God about his deliverance from all his enemies. Praise the Lord, Hallelujah! I prayed to God and again He said ‘The battle is over…the warfare is over, get ready to celebrate.’ I am rejoicing as my God is awesome! Hallelujah! God is faithful and He keeps His Word. Restoration, salvation and deliverance is here. Peace.”  (Virgin Islands) (posted 1/18/2014)
“Praise the Lord. The Lord is compassionate and cares for every detail of our stand. I have read the Saturday Testimonies for the Easter weekend and am so thankful to see many standers who are husbands share the Lord's victories in their stand. This is the first time I have read testimonies from so many men. Thank You, Lord for prompting the men to encourage us ladies. The men's testimonies show us women that you are touching the men much as You are touching the women. Standers, remain surrendered to the Lord so He can continue to work His purposes in our lives.”  (Canada)  (posted 4/26/2012)
“Praise God! Tonight I went to a monthly church event called Feed the Fire! The choir started with the song ‘He's Able.’ ‘Exceedingly Abundantly Above all, you can ask or think According to, power That worketh through you and me. God is able to do just what He said He would do. He's gonna fulfill every promise to you. Don't give up on God, cause He won't give up on you. He's Able.’ In the middle of that song a man walks in and stands next to my friend right in front of me and he looks at me and he looks just like my husband! At first I thought NO! Then I thought okay God, I hear You. The minister starts his sermon and it's on Job! I get prayed for twice and both spoke restoration into their prayer! God is good! And if I was not sure of His many blessings coming my way then, I am more than sure now! PTL! Continue to believe standers! Your time is coming!” (Washington)  (posted 3/15/2012)
“All praise to God! I have been faulty in my stand and lately needing a lot of reassurance that I am doing what God is wanting me to do. I have almost given up many times. The other day my husband texted me. He let me know that his choice is breaking his heart. He also stated that he is having a hard time finalizing things between us. He is still planning on moving, but glory to God that he provided a glimpse of the other side of the mountain and He allowed me to see that my husband still cares. It is a long journey. Keep standing.”  (Oregon)  (posted 4/15/2013)
“My husband came to see me for the first time in months! After spending the entire day in fasting and prayer, I went to bed believing for a miracle, and knowing that whatever I ask God pertaining to His will, He hears and if He hears He will answer. Before I went to bed I thanked God for restoring my husband to my arms. I awoke to my husband knocking on my bedroom window. I was in awe of God's work. My phone was even dead, and my husband almost didn't stop by because off that. We hugged and talked, and it was amazing. He left and ended up coming back shortly after to give me a kiss. God then showed me my story written in Song of Solomon 5:2-6. For the next week, my husband was calling me every day. I know God is showing him where he belongs. I haven't heard from him in weeks now, but I know after all this God is still working on the other side of this mountain. Restoration is coming, and God will restore all the years the locusts ate away!”  (South Carolina) (posted 11/25/2013)
“For a few years now my daughter has been trying to get me to go see this chiropractor she knew. I kept telling her I didn’t need one ! One morning I got up and my neck was hurting so bad and I decided to go to this chiropractor. I shared my story with her. She started telling about how her husband left her and how she found this site. It was RMM!  She wrote the web site down and for a few days I just looked at the card but decided to check it out. Well I am a now a stander. Praise God. My husband and I are not back together yet but I know it will happen because I put all my faith in God. Now I have brought four others to RMM. Praise the Lord, He is working hard for me.”  (Michigan)  (posted 12/17/2012)
"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 have not been in contact with my prodigal husband for years. He finally went through with the divorce, but through that process, God opened the doors of communication. Now we are emailing back and forth many times a day and I am hopeful this will be a step toward my prodigal’s heart softening toward me." (Michigan) (posted 6/4/2010)
“I want to praise God for all he is doing in my life and my prodigal's life. There have been several false starts. We are a military family and my husband is currently deployed. He is literally out in the wilderness, and yet I can see God at work and that my husband's heart is softening. He is reading his Bible and asks me to pray for him regarding certain areas. I am so grateful that God gives me these glimpses around the mountain, especially when the enemy tries so hard to discourage me! God will restore my marriage in His perfect timing!”  (Washington)  (posted 6/5/2013)
“God is faithful! My husband walked out on me and our marriage last year. I was totally blindsided. He proceeded with a divorce, which I did NOT want. Through all of this I stayed prayed up and trusting God to restore my marriage and to soften my husband’s heart. We were divorced but I continued to pray for my husband, and my marriage. In October, out of the blue, my husband called me, telling me he wanted to see me. He proceeded to tell me that God has softened his heart towards me and he is no longer with the other woman! We are not back together as one, but God is in the middle of this and I know my God will restore this marriage in His timing! GOD IS ABLE!”  (Florida) (posted 12/16/2014)
"God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged." Hebrews 6:18 (posted 6/5/2009)
"My husband came by this evening. We ate and talked and he washed the dishes. For a moment it felt like we were a family again. I know that God is moving and I am thankful for it. I know God is going to do what He promised." (New York) (posted 2/20/2009)
“PTL, God is so amazing! This long journey has been an emotional roller coaster but also a blessing. I learned to trust my heavenly Father and give Him everything. I wanted to give up countless time but God would always give me a sign every time I was down to never quit. I declare my marriage is healed! My husband was blessed with a job and we are moving into our new place soon. God is not done, He will finish what He started. Standers, remember that God will do just what He said He will do. Forgive and step out of the way and allow God to move. Stay in the Word for God is your refuge and shelter. God is going to send your prodigal spouse home soon. My husband’s salvation is coming swiftly. Thank You Jesus!”  (Florida) (posted 1/19/2015)
