"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised." Hebrews 10:35-36
“God gave me the victory over my feelings of despair. I cried out to the Lord, told Him how I felt and how much I believed in Him. I asked God to do His will in my marriage. I felt great relief afterwards. God is always available to talk to. I know my suddenly is near, I can feel it. The enemy will always try to keep you down so that you will doubt God. When this happens pray, instead of feeling thoughts of despair and distress say, ‘Glory to God!’”  (Texas) 
“PTL for all He has done and all He IS going to do. I started my stand a few months ago. The Lord brought me to RMM through another site. All the material you provide has helped me in my new journey with the Lord. I am standing firm even though my current circumstances may look grey. I am holding on tight to the Lord's promise on marriage restoration. My husband has recently started calling more during the day. He even shows up unexpectedly to see the kids. That IS the Holy Spirit touching his heart and God doing what He has promised. I have NO DOUBT the Lord will restore my marriage and make it better than before.”  (California)

"My husband walked out on me, I got evicted from my apartment, and my car was repossessed. I could not work because I was pregnant and had complications. I had to move in with my mom in her apartment. Now my marriage has been restored. I have a car paid in full, and a job making more money then I have ever made. My medical problems have been healed by prayer. The best part of my testimony is that through it people came to the Lord. I would not take back one thing I had to go through. God taught me intimacy with Him."  (Florida)

“For many, many years the Father has worked into me a strong understanding of the covenant I had made and the meaning of one flesh. This morning during worship, the Father showed me the power and authority that I have in Him to stand in my husband's stead as his one flesh covenant wife. He showed me how (from His Presence) I can stand as though I'm inside of my husband (because God has made us one), and can praise Jesus as a way to draw Kingdom things of love, redemption, etc. into his atmosphere. Praising Jesus as his one flesh covenant wife can call forth things of the Lord for him that he might not be able to call forth for himself or his circumstances. When worship ended, my pastor started talking about this very concept of calling forth the Lord's vindication and complete restoration and redemption for others when they can't call it forth for themselves.”  (California)
“My spouse asked to reconcile after I had been praying for awhile but has not left ‘the far country’ completely. I cried out to God one day after standing for a few more months. I said, ‘God I can do this if this is what You want but please give me a sign that I'm doing the right thing.’ I looked up from my Bible on the ride home from work and saw a license plate that read ‘FUNBUS.’ God reminded me that my spouse was on 'the fun bus' and that Jesus would rescue him in due time. Thank you for your wonderful ministry!”  (Texas) 
“I am a new stander and I have been in prayer and fasting for the restructuring of my marriage in the Lord. I have received three scriptures: Romans 4:18 – The fulfillment of God’s promise is contingent on our faith in Him and His ways, then His pure gift will be released. Isaiah 43:2-3 – When you are in over your head, I’ll be there with you, I am God, your Savior (paraphrased). Isaiah 42:1-4 – God’s servant will set everything right and everyday is a rest in Him (paraphrased). I am praying for all the standers to be strong in the Word and do not be overwhelmed by your circumstance. I am praying for the prodigals to have deafened ears to the enemy and open ears to God and to return home. In Jesus’ name, Amen.” (North Carolina)
“My husband stopped by the house for coffee - to tell me he has been seeing someone who was coming to live with him. He said he's prayed for God to show him if it's His will. We discussed how we might know God's will, how God might answer prayer and we opened the Bible. Silently I prayed for God to hold me, it hurt so much inside to hear him talk about his plans. As he continued to speak about he felt it was right, I looked down - my Bible had fallen to Philemon which we'd not been discussing. One sentence caught my eye from Verse 22 '..prepare a guest room for me, for I am hoping through your prayers to be restored to you.' I had such joy. God has never given me that verse before and he gave it to me in front of my prodigal while he talked of plans with someone new. I will pray, and hold on and trust God through this.”  (United Kingdom)
“God is a faithful God and His Word does not return void but will accomplish that which He pleases and prosper where He sends it. This last month I have seen a big change in my husband. Before he said he wanted to divorce and he didn't love me. But since I have been praying, fasting and doing warfare, he would call me every week to see how I was doing and if I needed anything. He even came to fix something around the house. This week he has sent me messages every night wishing me a goodnight and last night he sent me a text to see if he could come over and visit. God never fails and nothing is too hard for Him. I stand by faith that any hour he will be back home. PTL!” (Texas) 
“After my husband divorced me in court, my attorney decided to wait to write the typed copy. I just found out I am still married and my husband decided it was safe to see me because he thought it was official. I am still hoping the paperwork won't go through becauseWhat therefore God has joined together let not man put asunder.’ Matthew 19:6.  Then my husband called to see me and said he was having pleasant thoughts about me. It was so nice to see him after over three years of not speaking or seeing each other. He said he hasn't found anyone and wants to give me a chance. Praise the Lord Almighty!”  (Illinois) 

“After standing for some years my husband came home! PTL! After lots of prayer, fasting and unconditional love my breakthrough came. The other relationship ended, the OW moved out of state. Despite a non-covenant child and things looking hard - my God put everything in place! My husband is home and it feels great and worth every trial. With God's help our marriage is being rebuilt. Thank you for your prayers and support. God does heal hurting marriages. Prodigals do come home! With God all things are possible, so keep standing!”  (Florida) 

“The Lord urged me to buy my husband a Father's Day present. It was something he really wanted for his last birthday and we could not afford it. The Lord has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams in the time my beloved has been absent from our home. I was able to buy him the gift. The Lord demonstrated his faithfulness by urging my husband to spend the night in our home for Father's Day. Even though he slept in the guest room, it was nice having him home. He confessed he wasn't happy, but he was afraid of being miserable if he came home for good. I prayed against the enemy all night. This morning, my beloved said he will consider trying again. He even left his things here. Praise the Lord for He is faithful!”  (Florida)
“God granted me time with my beloved yesterday. What the enemy intended for evil, the Lord used to answer my prayer for fellowship and communication with my spouse in a lovely setting. I will believe the report of the Lord and praise God He has brought me to a place of being able to zip my lips and let Him work! Resurrection is coming for my spouse and our marriage.”  (Florida)  
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 
"I was very hurt this past weekend and called my husband. I was ready to give up. I cried and told the Lord I couldn't do it anymore. My husband and I had a nice conversation. He told me that he could not afford the divorce right now and did not know when he could. Praise the Lord." (California)
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. I Peter 1:13
Shortly after my husband left, I lost my full-time job. For the past couple of years God continued to bless me with part-time jobs with just enough income to pay bills and tithe. It was a struggle for me, but I knew God was preparing me for something greater. I told God, if He blessed me with a salaried position again, I would be able to pay the tithes and also help with my church building fund. At the end of last year He answered my prayer. All glory to GOD! He did exceedingly abundantly above all I could ask or think. If He gave me the job of my dreams, I know He will bring my husband home to Him first and then back home to me. Nothing is impossible with God."  (Virginia) 
“For God does speak—now one way, now another— though man may not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn man from wrongdoing and keep him from pride,  to preserve his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword.”  Job 33:14-18  
"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6

"God is good. I was feeling depressed and lonely and I prayed those feelings away. I knew something big was going to happen and praised God in anticipation. The next day my husband showed up with his belongings, asking to come home. I am so grateful and aware that I am now standing firmer than ever because the enemy will attack more now than ever." (Texas)

“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)
"My wife plans to marry and my daughters are devastated. I can see right into my wife's heart. It is cold and black. I have had many people in her inner circle tell me that she and he are miserable. I know what God has promised me - reconciliation." (Washington)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
"Even though he is planning a marriage with the other woman, my prodigal has been emailing me and doing me favors and helping around the house. His mother called and talked for an hour. Our daughter who had declared she did not believe in God now says she believes and is reading the Bible. God is good all the time." (Louisiana)
“I’m standing for my family restoration, knowing in complete faith today that what I see is not what God has for me and my daughter. My almighty God, Creator of all, will deliver us and give us great joy and eternal happiness with the return of my husband. Thanks Rejoice Ministries because when I feel I can't do it anymore, I read how the Lord has been so beautiful and will come in His perfect time. Reading His Word makes me strong to continue standing firm.”  (Panama)  
"More than 4 years ago my prodigal spouse came home. He left our home to pursue a life with another woman, but God had other plans. My prayer through our storm was, of course, that God would restore our marriage on the Solid Rock of Jesus, but also that He would one day use us both to help others in hurting marriages. About 3 weeks ago that prayer was answered. I now work at my church and my husband and I have been given the trust and opportunity to counsel with couples. Please pray that God would show us what He wants in starting this ministry at our church. Never give up!!"  (Texas)
"As much as the enemy hates it, our marriage is restored. God is answering prayers." (New Jersey)
“Praise God for His faithfulness when we act in obedience! My husband and I have been separated for a few months. In that time, he returned to the OW and said they were going to get married. I filed for divorce as I gave up hope. God led me to RMM two days after Christmas. I withdrew the divorce that day and began a serious stand for my marriage. The very next day my husband texted and called (none of this was happening before) and came to see us. God then led me to fast these past three weeks and praise God! I have seen miracle after miracle in my husband's life! He said he literally FEELS my prayers and can hear God speaking to him! He now wants to move back home! Don't give up, standers! Stay strong and keep your eyes on Jesus! All glory be to God!”  (Georgia)
"We are reconciling from divorce. My husband's new pastor made it plain there were no biblical excuses to divorce. My husband has decided to come back to the relationship in obedience to God. I am proud to see my husband begin to take his place as a Christlike head of the household." (Ohio)
"I am a stander for my own marriage. I've had a great example in standing and showing sacrificial love from my Dad. My Mom and Dad were divorced in 1998 after 41 years of marriage. Since that time my Dad has never doubted that one day they would be remarried. He has responded in love to my Mom. Valentines Day 2006 they were remarried at the ages of 73 and 69. God has done a tremendous work in their lives. My once wounded hearted Mother, told me a month ago that at age 69 she has that giddy love for my Dad that she had when they were dating 50 years ago. God will truly restore the years that the locust have devoured. His plans and His ways are so much better than ours.” (Arkansas)
“I praise God that the seeming absurdity of my stand has given me many opportunities to gently, joyfully share God's plan for marriage with hurting people. Almost a year ago, I shared about marriage restoration with a co-worker whose sister was contemplating divorce. My co-worker was fascinated by my decision to stand but also skeptical. Still, she asked me to pray for her sister's marriage.  Praise GOD, over Christmas my co-worker learned that in the past few months, her sister has felt called by the Lord to fully embrace her marriage vows and recommit herself to loving her husband, who is overjoyed. My co-worker and I praised God together. Please join us!”  (District of Columbia) 
“PTL!  It was our 12th anniversary and I waited for God’s guidance to give my beloved a card. He arrived in the morning to drop our daughter home and I gave it to him as he left with our son for the day. He returned later to drop our son home and, although he didn't mention the card, he hung around a while and commented that the weather was so much like our wedding day. God is working in his heart. I pray with all standers - have faith, our Lord will bring our spouses home!”  (New Zealand)
“PTL! I had an amazing Christmas even though my beloved declined my request to come over for Christmas. I had no funds and plans for Christmas - but God did. He put the whole thing together within the last two weeks before Christmas. All the people I love were here - my family and all my in-laws. I felt so loved. Thank You Lord. I feel that my beloved is almost home.”  (Belize)
"I have been asking for a sign from God that my prodigal still loves me, and last night he invited me to lunch. We went to lunch today and afterwards he hugged and kissed me before I left. Thank You, God for confirming that standing is the right thing to do."  (Texas) 
“Yesterday my attorney called, my husband wants to put divorce on hold and try to work things out. The word’s from today’s devotional really spoke to me. ‘Now my spouse needs a heart transplant and by your praying and interceding, nothing is too hard for our Lord God to do. Today, you see the sinfulness of your spouse's heart, but wait, you will see how the Lord will touch and change your spouse’s heart as nothing is impossible with God.’ I am asked by the Lord to continue praying to see this marriage survive. Thank you for this site; it is a blessing to have guidance, when you don't have others who can pray with you and guide you.”  (Texas) 
“All the glory belongs to you Lord. My husband called me today just to tell me that he loves me and that the Lord is really dealing with him. Nobody but Jesus! Standers, don't stop praying for surely God is truly up to something great”  (Florida)  

"It took ten long years of standing, but God miraculously restored our marriage. Many people told me to get on with my life, but I knew I had heard from the Lord that He would restore my marriage. My husband is so grateful that I obeyed the Lord and never gave up on him. One of our favorite verses is the one about forgiving "seventy times seven," because we had so many issues to resolve, but the rewards of a loving, happy home is well worth it." (Colorado)

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever--do not abandon the works of your hands." Psalm 138:7-8
"God hears and answers prayers! I am a male stander. I was feeling down about me re-deploying home because of my marriage situation, and have been praying and standing this whole deployment for the healing. I felt I couldn't see movement. Wow did He show me! My wife told me she planned to surprise me by inviting the whole family to be there when I come in. He showed me He is working on her heart and I believe the rest will happen when I am finally home! Look for my healed marriage testimony soon and I will look for yours. Keep praying!!"  (North Carolina) 
“I just had to share what a burden has been lifted from me after reading ‘How Does the Other Person Have Such Control Over My Spouse?’ God spoke to me through this devotional. I am worthy in Christ. I can now stop focusing on what I thought I was lacking and focus on praying for each of their eyes to be opened to the Truth. I am no longer buried under the lie of punishing myself for things beyond my control. I have been given a new perspective and all glory to God. I thank Him that He brings good even out of bad situations and uses everything for His purpose. God will fulfill His promises; we need to be still and know that He is God.”  (Maryland)

I have been praying for my husband’s salvation for many months. I am seeing the movement of the Holy Spirit in his life. We had a terrific conversation Thursday morning. I could feel God's hand on my shoulder as we spoke. Our Lord always goes before us and keeps His promises." (Indiana)
"Praise God, my husband who left home months ago went to church with us and he went forward for altar call." (South Africa)
“Once again, my American friends are preparing for Thanksgiving. Even though this is not part of my cultural celebrations, I like the idea of taking the time to stop everything and give thanks. In my busy life I know how much easier, and certainly more visible, it is to count the pain, the hurt, the depression and the sadness. It takes a lot of effort on my part to remember the vast number of things for which I must give thanks. So, I'll join my American friends in spirit, celebrating Thanksgiving by giving thanks to God, if for nothing else, than the fact that I'm still standing! Happy Thanksgiving!”  (Hong Kong)
"As I tucked my daughter in for bed, I asked her what she wanted to pray about. Bringing daddy home is always first on her list. However, this time at the end of her list of people to pray for she said, 'But we have to pray for the most important thing.' Puzzled, I asked her what that was. She said, 'for God to bring all the mommies and daddies home who are gone from their families all over the world.' Thank You, Jesus!  (Tennessee) 
“My husband told me a few months ago that he wants to separate. I found this website and started standing immediately. I thank God that although he is still saying he wants out, he hasn't left our home. I have been praying and just recently started fasting, and it seems as though the stronger I get, the more attacks the enemy sends my way. By the grace of God I am able to smile because I know that God is winning the battle going on within my husband. Lately I have been feeling an unexplained excitement in my spirit. My suddenly is coming soon.”  (Hawaii)

"Last year God brought my husband home to me suddenly after being divorced for a few years. He had married the other woman but it fell apart and he came back to me. He came to faith in Christ during this time. t time. Even when I tried to give up, God always brought me back. I love my God, who makes all things new." (Texas)

“My marriage has been restored after some years of separation. God answered in His time. He is so faithful. Please don’t give up even if circumstances look impossible. I believe in the promises written in the Bible…say it, repeat it, believe it! God is awesome! " (California) 

"I had prayed 'Jesus please show me that You are working behind the mountain.' All praise to God as this prayer was answered in Charlyne Cares '18 Signs That Something Is Happening' and also when my husband immediately replied to a message wishing him well on a celebratory date, when previously there was no communication. God showed me 2 Chronicles 7:14, that I need to keep my eyes fixed on Him, trust Him completely, praise Him and humble myself to Him. Praising God for His personal encouragement to keep standing while He works and I focus on Jesus." (United Kingdom)
