“After my husband separated from me I was devastated and tried to win him back with words. Then God taught me to get my relationship with HIM right in the first place. Your advice to Zip Your Lips was a challenge to me but God helped me and so did your daily devotionals and your audio teachings on the Internet. God’s timetable is the best. Getting into the Word of God is like medicine. Thank you for helping me to stand and pray and leave my husband in God’s care.” (Germany)
"I am praising the Lord that my God brought my husband home this past weekend. It was very suddenly. Thank you Bob and Charlyne for your wisdom and direction on how to stand. I thank God for you both. There is much to continue to stand for, but God can do anything." (Arizona)

"After almost six months of separation, my wife and I are getting back together. We have found that acceptance of each other and faith in our Lord is much more powerful than trying to go it alone. I was for sure our marriage was done when she filed the papers, but God changed our hearts, and pointed us in the direction we needed to go to reconcile our differences and to show us true compassion and forgiveness. Thank you Bob and Charlyne for the daily reminders to not give up on our marriage." (Tennessee)

"Last month I bought Bob and Charlyne's books, including 'Finding the Way Home.' I gave it to my husband. Today he sent me a text saying that he's been meaning to thank me for his book. I know God is working and I thank Him for keeping His promises." (Georgia)
"I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 11:19
"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 give glory to my God for his faithfulness. Before I found your Ministry I was depressed and hopeless. I felt defeated. But God and your daily devotionals helped me in more ways than I ever thought possible.  I don’t know what the Lord has in store for me, but your Ministry has helped me become a better person, Christian and brought me closer to God. I have so much peace in my heart and I have really learned to trust in Jesus and to depend in the Lord's word.”  (Namibia) 
“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) 
"My husband is still very determined to get a divorce. I pray that the papers will be dismissed and cancelled forever. My husband is now on his third lawyer. They keep quitting. The papers keep getting delayed. Praise God." (California)
"After many years of silence, my husband called me this week and then came to see me. He was repentant about the past and wants to come to see me again. God is moving him closer to Himself and to home. Even when I couldn't see anything, God was working. He is faithful." (North Carolina)

“My husband and I have been divorced for several years now. After many years of prayer we are finally talking, dating, being friends again. Praise God! The Lord has been faithful to show me my part in the divorce and how I drove him away. Hallelujah! We have forgiven each other and on the road to restoration! Thank You Jesus!” (Texas) 
"I have been praying for God to heal both myself and my husband and to restore this marriage. Yesterday I went to pick up my mail at the house. My husband asked me to stay for dinner. God does answer prayer and I know we are on our way to being restored." (Florida)

“Only God! Several months ago my wife moved out and filed for divorce. Today, thanks to God and the prayers of others, I can say we are now back together with a restored marriage in our new home and a new beginning that only God can do. The past months allowed me to see the hand of God turning a heart of stone to a heart of flesh. I encourage you who may think your marriage is dead, remember God hates divorce. Put all of your trust in Him and He can do for you what He did for me. Our marriage is stronger than ever before and I encourage you to be strong in your stand knowing that God is able to do what seems impossible to man.”  (Florida) 

“Glory be to God, another battle has been won. My husband and I were separated for many months under impossible circumstances. I believed God that He would restore my marriage, but my fears and questions were, when God? I practiced zipping my lip a lot. Anyway, I blew it big time yesterday because my hubby was being extremely selfish. Afterward, I felt hopeless and felt I had frustrated God’s efforts. Twenty-four hours later, and I tell you, it was the least thing I was expecting, my husband returned home! Thanks be to our Father, who is working even when we don't see. He is truly, truly working."  (Australia)

“Praise God for softening my husband’s heart. Due to the fact that the child support/alimony now comes through the state, my account is very low until the check comes through. My sweet husband noticed this and texted me that he had put money in to help us out until the check comes through! Thank You Lord for putting us on his mind!”  (Texas)
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23

"I want to share how great God is. After being separated for two years, my husband has returned. He is a changed man. Still we await the final victory of his accepting Christ as his personal Savior. Stand firm, even though it may not be in our time frame that our prodigal returns. The Lord knows what’s best for us." (Florida)

“I give God all the glory. My husband and I have been married for many years, and there was infidelity that I wasn’t aware of for many of those years. He moved out in October, 2010. I was devastated and confused; so were our children. I had four bad years in a row, with many circumstances coming against me. I had had enough. Looking for hope, I found RMM, someone who had been in my shoes and wanted to fight for their marriage. My husband was still at home during these affairs on and off. I let God change me. Now he is saved.”  (Virginia) 
"My wife has returned home and will remarry me shortly. Bob and Charlyne were a huge part of this reconciliation. Through the website, tapes and emails, your encouragement and testimonies helped me reconcile with my wife. Thank you again so very much." (New York)
"The Lord has moved behind the mountain and I am seeing His works on this side. After months of no contact, my prodigal has made an effort to be with our family." (Virginia)
“Some months ago, I lost my wedding rings outside in a location that I am not even aware of. Yesterday, God restored them to me in an unbelievable set of circumstances! The marriage is a covenant between three and even though my spouse and I may have walked away from and even broken it, God has not! God returning my rings reminded me that He is faithful to keep His covenant promises!  For nothing is impossible with God.  Luke 1:37.”  (Florida) 
"I feel twinges of pain seeing photos of my husband with his girlfriend and their daughter. But then, I trusted the Lord for my marriage restoration. Thank you, Bob and Charlyne because every time I look at the world, you point me back to look up to God and to His promises." (Philippines)
You are right that memorizing scripture chases Satan away!!! This past August, I found out that my divorced prodigal has a girlfriend in Colombia. I went into shock, immediate confusion and sadness. As I tried to process God's command to stand for my prodigal and marriage against this awful news, I stopped my mind from going to the dark side by speaking out God's Word that He has given me through out my stand such as Zechariah 10:6 "I will restore them because I have compassion on them." 2 Chronicles 20:15 "For the battle is not yours, but GOD'S.", Numbers 23:19 "God is not man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He SHOULD CHANGE HIS MIND!", Luke 1:37 "FOR NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!" Instantly, I could feel the cloud of confusion and depression go away! PTL!!!  (Texas)
"The last few months I have been feeling down and angry. Many a time I wanted to give up. Today my divorced husband arrived from the United States. He had traveled half way around the world to visit me in Australia. Thank You, Lord, that You're faithful even when I am not." (Australia)

"My prayer partner and I prayed that God would give me encouragement during the Sabbath regarding my situation and that if there were any promises that we have failed to claim that He would show us. When I arrived at church, I noticed the title of the sermon was 'God is a Prayer Answering, Miracle Working God' and after briefly telling a friend about my situation, she told me to claim Hosea 2:6,7. After I relayed what happened during my day to my friend, we both praised the Lord for He heard our cry. I pray that God will continue to encourage me throughout my stand."  (Washington)

“Because my husband still wanted to ‘take care of’ me and make sure I was okay, he drove me and our two cats across the country and now I'm in a hotel room looking for an apartment. It's not easy, but having time with my husband was really great for me. When we said goodbye he held me and told me loved me (as a friend) and that this wasn't ‘the end’ of anything. I know he believes we're just going to be friends, but I believe God is going to take this love we still feel and grow it into His kind of love and into a marriage that makes Him proud of both of us. Thank You God for loving us both!”  (Colorado)  

“Praise be to God. My husband is back and this time for good. God never fails. Whenever I felt like giving up, God gave me hope. Exactly a month before my husband’s return God spoke to my heart and said it’s over, he's coming home. Now I see after his return that God has not only convicted my husband and brought him home but He has changed me. Dear standers, things will look really bad just before it settles down. Just claim and hold onto God’s promises because the God we love is a never failing God. Romans 8:28  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.  (Sri Lanka)

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Philippians 4:4 
“I accepted Christ just a few days after being served a couple years ago. Our dissolution occurred this year and although my wife came into our marriage of many years as a Christian, she hates me and will not forgive. I am transformed and can feel that God wants me to stand. God has already performed a miracle in my relationship with our son. We both pray for a softening of her heart and renewal of her Spirit. I’m confident in time it will come. I thank God in all things knowing He knows and will do all things for my good. My legs are strong on His rock and I will not waiver.” (Arizona)
“God's Word convicted me. James 3:16:For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. I had asked my husband long ago to forgive me for not being a godly woman during our marriage, but I had asked out of self ambition (to get him back) and not out of obedience to God. So I started praying for the opportunity to have this conversation with him. Right before he was to come over Satan started working on me, ‘You've already asked forgiveness. You're going to upset him.’  But I heard God say, ‘Error on the side of obedience.’ I asked my husband for forgiveness and he then asked me to forgive him. He HAS NEVER asked me that AND he said he prays for me every night! I give God all the praises! Keep standing for your marriage! God is working even when we don't see it!”  (Arizona) 
"My anniversary is tomorrow and I have been down, knowing that I will not be spending it with my wife. Today I asked God for a sign that He was working behind the scenes on my wife's heart. Your devotional for today was titled "Our Anniversary"! . I started crying right at my desk. I believe God meant this just for me. He knows just what we need and when we really need it." (Pennsylvania)
"On the date of our court hearing, my husband and I came to an agreement and we pulled the divorce out of court for now. We prayed together for reconciliation. We are going to marriage counseling. Thanks to God for the miracle and hope I have been given so far, and pray I will behave true to Jesus to get us through the difficult moments to a truly healthy happy loving and peaceful marriage and family relationship in God." (California)
“Sometimes I have so much doubt whether I should pray for my marriage. I cried out to God and said that if it really is His will, could He give me a sign. 20 minutes later my husband called and said he wanted to stop by and have coffee with me. We ended up going to the same theater play in the evening. Also, my husband and I decided this weekend to visit our daughter who is 450 miles away in a rehabilitation center. So we spent this weekend together as a family. God is always greater than our thoughts.”  (Germany)

“Praise God! my husband came home! God kept speaking to me for months telling me He would bring him home. a couple weeks ago a verse I never read before jumped off the page. Ezekiel 36:8 - ‘but you, O mountains of Israel, shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people Israel; for they will soon come home.’ And a few days later he was here with all his belongings. The only thing I want to do right now is give all the glory to my Lord. He truly did it!” (Illinois)  

“I wanted to share with the world that God is moving miraculously! One night I took the time to sit, read the Word, and pray. I felt overwhelmed with my thoughts so I decided to grab a notebook and write down all the names of the people I was praying for. I read my Bible, the book of Proverbs, and I began including things in my prayers from that book. I felt that it wasn't even me praying but the Spirit of God. The next day my husband told me he felt homesick. It’s been over a year and it’s the first time he's told me that. Two days later he told me he had a dream I met someone else and was pretty sad about it. God is moving! 2 Chronicles 7:14 - If we humble ourselves God will heal our land. Give it all to God and He will see you through. I believe that God is saying be ready! Your suddenly is on his way home! Glory to God and only to God!”  (Texas)
“Praise God!  God is doing a great favor for me and my son. My husband is coming to visit us two to three times a week  and during special occasions. We are spending time talking on the phone every day. I am still standing that he will come home permanently SOON, that God will remove all the road blocks that hinder him, and that he'll be free from the sinful lifestyle and selfish desires. My verse tonight was Psalm 107:10-14. Dear stander, let’s press on for God is faithful." (United Arab Emirates)
“I want to say that I love what God has done for me. He has restored my marriage as He promised. I know for a fact that if you trust and believe in His Word and have faith, God WILL answer your prayer. I have opened my eyes and ears and given Him my heart and trusted in Him. I know that my restoration is just begun but I can trust in God for His desires as I walk and talk with Him every day. Again, I thank you and praise God for what He has done.”  (Georgia) 

“I experienced a lot of sadness on Mother's Day, but the sadness was somewhat tempered by the knowledge that I had sent my wife a generous check, above the child support that I've been blessed to be able to double) to help her and the kids, since I know she doesn't have much after leaving me. I am a civilian contractor in Kuwait and I eagerly look every day for some email or message from “home,” but often find only my daily Charlyne Cares. I thank God for those. Often they are the only real encouragement that I receive. Last week I received a thank you from my wife. It was short and simple, but it was something in a desert of a lot of nothing. I was sad because my birthday passed. I had prayed for some acknowledgment from my wife. I did not hear from her until May 10th. I got so excited that I called her and we talked for a half hour about kids and other things, all very casual with no ugliness. This meant a lot to me and I am very thankful to God for what He is doing in the unseen to restore our marriage. Praise be to our God.” (Kuwait)

“I thank the Lord for what He has done, is doing and will do in my life. l used to read other people's testimonies and faiedl to understand what they meant when they said suddenly it happened. But God is faithful. He has enabled me to experience my suddenly for my marriage was restored suddenly. I really cannot explain except to say it happened suddenly. Thank You, Lord and RMM for standing with me. Will continue to pray for ALL standers to experience their suddenly.”  (Zimbabwe)

"My prodigal told me that he wants to work on our marriage. Many times I have doubted that anything was happening on his side. Last night my husband told me that he has been wanting to come home for months. Thank You, Lord God for keeping me faithful to You and to my prodigal." (Colorado)

“Praise God and thank you for sharing Cari and Ryan's video. I can't wait to watch it again with my daughter. I've been standing for my marriage for many years now and my prodigal entered into a non-covenant marriage. Our daughter is about Cari and Ryan's daughter's age, too, and she has given up hope. Nothing is impossible with our God! Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him. I love You Lord!”  (Pennsylvania)

“Thank God my suddenly happened last week! Normally I would have been working evenings, but my husband called me out of the blue! I began to cry and told him that I felt led to stand for restoration for our marriage. He told me he knew me or someone has been praying because his whole life is falling apart and he and the other person are not doing well. We spoke about God and about what we would expect if we got back together. He kept saying if and I kept saying WHEN because I told him that faith is not about saying but about believing and living it. I got a text that he wants to see me in a few weeks to ‘sign a form.’ It is funny because we have been apart for three years and why is it now I need to sign this? I believe it is God bringing us back together. It is written, the heart of a man deviseth the way, but the Lord directs his steps. I just wanted to praise my God for everything He has done and is going to do!”  (Tennessee)

"My marriage has been restored for six months. My husband used to be angry toward God. Now, he's hanging out with godly men. I never thought I would see this day, but God kept his promise to me. Thank You God." (Missouri)

“I am still basking in how the Lord moved. Last year my husband was with another and he and my child were spending the holidays with her. Fast forward to this Christmas, he and my child were with me as a family. He blessed me so much this season that I just am overcome with joy. My husband has always been a giver and he poured out his heart, not just on me and our child, but my family as well! The most precious point I would like to make is that my husband had the desire to do all this...be home, eat together, and go visit family as a unit. It was beautiful. The Lord is faithful. The Lord spoke to me last Christmas that he was coming home and he is doing just that. I'm humbled.”  (North Carolina)

“One of my daughter's and my nightly prayers is that God would use us to minister to our unsaved loved ones and that He would surround them with believers who would encourage them. I have been taking my young cousin who is nearly my daughter's age to church and Youth group. I have found out that most of her friends at school are Christians. Praise God! What is even more amazing is that my dear husband, who has avoided our church family for several years, has now been playing on our church football team for the last few months. Now my husband is around godly influences consistently. God answers prayer!”  (California)
“I hadn’t seen my husband for a long time. God was preparing me but I did not know this. His father passed away and my two children and I went to be with the family. My husband was there and I can say that Jesus was with me. I was able to tell him that I pray for him and forgive him every day and for the OW too. He did not react but I could see the pain in him. He would not look at me in the face. The enemy has stolen what God gave me so long ago. But God! I feel free because I was able to tell him in person. God gave me Isaiah 54: 4-7 and He has been my husband for this season. God has supplied and will always supply. My husband has said many lies, but God will redeem him because I forgave and he knew God a long time ago. It's for a season; I know God will heal him in His time. I pray that God will reveal Himself to my husband. Stand firm and have audacious faith in our Lord and Savior.”  (Florida) 
"Your compassion is great, O LORD; preserve my life according to your laws. Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes." Psalm 119:156-157
"For months my husband has driven hours to pick up our kids every other weekend. Because of the hurt I have endured, I have not interacted with him at all, always greeting the kids inside our home. Last weekend, God instructed me to meet my husband when he arrived and ask for his forgiveness for the terrible ways I sinned against him. It was a healing moment for us both as I acted in obedience to God's Word, seeking forgiveness when I have done wrong." (North Carolina)
"I decided to pray for giant, impossible things, since with God nothing is impossible. Three months ago I started praying fervently for God to move the other woman to another state. I found out from my husband that the other woman moved to another state. Praise God." (Washington)
