"To God be the Glory. The Miracle Easter began when my husband called me and told me he was ready to confess this sins. He met with a priest and had confession. I have learned from you that the most important thing is that he come back to the Father, and he has started his journey." (Peru)

“I am so thankful for RMM and for the Lord Jesus having me stand in the gap for my marriage. I spoke to my husband today. He is engaged and trying to get married. When I asked if they set a date, he stated things are in the way right now. Praise the Lord! I am standing in the gap, that my husband will move back home and we will remarry. The Lord has me loving my husband in a way I could not before because God has shown me how to love him.”  (Minnesota)  
“My wife just told me she loves me! My marriage has been on a downward spiral since the end of last year. My world crumbled and my heart was shattered. We used to hold hands and pray over our meal. I thought all was lost. I've cried out to God and pleaded for direction. Through it all, God has proven to me that He's been right beside me the entire time. Just recently an evangelist preached a couple of sermons that ministered to me. He even looked at me, called me by name, and told me things only God could have revealed. This week my wife has held my hand while we blessed our meals and she's allowed me to be closer to her. God is RESURRECTING my marriage!” (Tennessee)
"My husband moved out. I have no idea where he is. Months before I had asked God to restore my marriage and was standing while he was still here. I knew this was the work of Satan. I kept my stand and in recent weeks my husband has been contacting me by phone and is filled with conviction, even saying that he misses me. I am letting God take control." (Indiana)
“My spouse left home many years ago. My Pastor, Christian friends and family also gave up on him as it seemed impossible for him to return home. I follow Charlyne Cares devotional daily and God always speaks to me. God is good. I happened to chance upon a man crossing the road wearing a t-shirt with the words ‘With God, all things are possible!’ on the day that I was most depressed. A month ago, I was still looking for legal advice to file for divorce to end this so-called marriage which I thought was beyond restoration. God fulfilled His promise of restoration to me, and my spouse started texting me that he still loves me and wants to come home. Praise the Lord! He works when we least expect it.”  (Singapore) 
“Last week my prodigal suddenly started to reach out to our family. He is living in adultery but has not pushed for divorce as he used to years ago. He prayed with us before bedtime and repented out loud in front of our child about being a poor example the past several years. He wants to come home, but says his job requires him to live in the area where he conveniently is living with the other person. I believe this must change in Jesus’ Name because a personal relationship with God comes first then responsibility to family and lastly to the job. God is a God of order and He will fix it! I have not heard from my beloved all week but will continue to praise God for a glimpse of His work in my husband. Thank You Lord!”  (Florida)  
"Even after so many years of separation and divorce, I know that God is still with me. No, my husband is not yet home, but the children and I continue to experience so many little miracles; a lot of them unexpected and unrequested, but all so timely and each making our lives a little easier and less anxious. He knows what we need and He gives accordingly. I feel so undeserving. And through my tears of thanks and praise, I still cry, ‘Lord I believe. Help my unbelief!’”  (Hong Kong) 
“I stopped standing but would occasionally pray for my husband’s salvation. Last September, I contacted my prodigal after receiving news of his mother’s passing. We began to talk on Skype once a week and we became nicer to each other. I have started receiving Charlyne Cares again and Saturdays are very special because I get to read all that God is doing in other stander's lives. To all the wonderful women who have received a Word from God, I salute you and I pray your miracles will come. God bless you!”  (Malaysia) 

“I've been coming to RMM for many months now. My husband, who many of you have prayed for, came home three months ago! This was after four sets of papers sent to me, none of which I signed. We are in the restoration process, but this has been a long, long road. For you standers out there waiting on your miracle, don't give up! As soon as you think you can't hold on any longer is just when the tide will turn! Our God has shown me so many marvelous things and I am still continuing to pray for all prodigals and standers out there! I prayed for God to bring my spouse home...but you know what? He did double! God is a God of miracles! And he doubles what the locust has eaten. Not only did he bring my husband back home, but he has now blessed us with our first baby! Praise God! Lord, I give you all the glory, and even though the devil may still be lurking, You God are the One who has already won this battle!”  (Virginia)

“Today I received an Order of Dismissal of the divorce my spouse filed. Praise the Lord I'm still married!"  (North Carolina) 

"After years of standing, my family shared Thanksgiving together. My prodigal is no longer with the other person but is still lost. Relationships within the family are slowly beginning to heal. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me." (Pennsylvania)

“I just want to express how AMAZING God is. My husband and I are going through the process of restoration in our marriage and I have been standing on God's Word. Until now I had never seen or asked God to send a Covenant Transport truck my way. Yet after today I am a witness that I have seen one and it came at the right time. I was hurting inside and as I was talking to my sister about my issues, I looked up and there was a Covenant Transport truck passing my way. I just began to praise God and the conversation turned into glorifying God. So AMAZING! I will forever stand on the Word of God and His promises! Thank You Jesus!”  (South Carolina)
"To God be the glory. My husband continues to reach out to me to ask me to pray for him. We have begun weekly fast and pray sessions together. The Lord is working." (New York)
"My husband left several months ago and filed for divorce. He has made a few false starts home. Although he insisted on the divorce I stood firm for what I was chosen to do. Our final hearing was last week with the judge making no decision. The decision came today; our divorce was dismissed. When my husband first left me, I heard 'You will not be divorced.' Praise God for promises made and delivered. I will continue to stand firm for restoration of my marriage. I believe the Lord will begin a mighty work on my husband's heart as he did on mine. What beautiful blessings we receive from our Lord and Savior." (Ohio)
PTL! I have prayed and prayed that something like this would happen. Even though my spouse is torn, our court date has been postponed. Please keep us in your prayers, that our Lord will bring us back to where we belong.”  (Texas) 
"God never leaves us nor forsakes us. The bank has delayed the foreclosure sale of my home. I received Godly advice today and after I came home, I checked the foreclosure site, and they changed the sale date from three days from now to over two months. I had faxed them a letter asking for another extension due to my circumstances. God is Our Provide. (Alaska) (A PS from Pompano- When we were divorced Charlyne learned the importance of keeping in touch with creditors, always being honest with them, keeping her promises to them, and making regular payments, regardless of how small. She discovered that when she did these things most creditors were willing to work with her.)

"My husband has returned. I trusted in the Lord and the Lord was true to His word. For the first time in my life I learned the Lord was my everything and I learned to trust Him." (California)

“My husband and I have been apart for many years. In that time he has been very adamant that he has no interest in reconciliation. I had the opportunity to literally testify to my commitment to our vows during the divorce hearing! But this testimony is that I feel God is telling me to prepare for reconciliation. To prepare to move back in with him. God has softened my heart toward my in-laws too. That is huge given our history. Praise God for the hope He has given me!”  (Texas)
"I was having a rough morning, crying out to God asking Him if He cared. The only reason I left the house was to get a tire fixed. The tire shop was busy and I had to wait some time. The manager finally brought my keys and told me my car was ready at no charge. I started to argue that I had come prepared to pay and he said I had not seen anything yet. We went outside and there were four new tires on my car. I started crying and he just looked at me and said, 'God said tell you He has your back.' This man did not know my circumstances." (Florida)
"I was doing my devotional time when I asked God to let my husband call me and right when I finished the devotional, my husband called. I have been standing in agreement with the Steinkamps about breaking the walls of silence. My husband has continued to call me, and my father-in-law called me also. I know only God could do this after a divorce on paper." (Oklahoma)
“...But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”  Joshua 24:15b 
"Dear standers, I've been separated for a while and was beginning to get weary, but little did I know God was answering every little prayer in His timing. I asked Jesus to send my husband godly men that are full of faith; on fire for Him. I also prayed that my husband would start to tell me again that he loves and misses me. I want to say that God is faithful to His promises and has softened my husband’s heart to tell me these things. The Lord has also sent a great man of God (Pastor) in my husband’s life to encourage him every day. PTL! My husband is on his way home."  (Nevada) 
“I was called to stand a few years ago. In these last few years I have seen the Lord constantly at work at my spouse's heart, especially in this past year. We are divorced in the eyes of the court, and my spousal support is due to run out soon. I am not able to work outside the home because of our children’s' needs, and the spousal support is how I pay the house payment and a lot of our bills. This week out of the blue, he said that he was going to petition the court and extend the spousal support because he doesn't want us to have to move. This is the second time this year that he has been moved to help us in a big way. Several months ago he asked the court to raise the child support amount. The judge was very surprised, and told us she doesn’t remember that ever happening in her court before.”  (Michigan) 
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10
“Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.  For your Maker is your husband—the LORD Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth.  Isaiah 54:4-5
"Praise God, my spouse received the Lord as his Savior suddenly last week. I know God will restore our marriage and one day bring him home to me. Soon we will be sitting together and worshiping in our church." (Alabama)
“Yesterday my prodigal called to tell me he loved me and wanted to remain married! If you had asked me yesterday morning how I thought this would end I honestly would have told you that I thought I would probably go through the entire separation/divorce process and then remain single waiting for his return. God has been incredibly faithful through this whole process, and though there is much work to be done, I have complete peace that His hand is all over our marriage and family. Though my stand was not long, He has brought me to a place where I am forever changed for His glory and good. I felt peace throughout that He would sustain me, and even through the bad days of doubt and anger, He protected my heart from becoming bitter and callous.” (Virginia) 
"I have been praying and saving a seat for my husband in church. Praise be to God he came on Thursday. Thanks for the book 'The Saved Seat.' Many of those that have been standing with me in faith also saw the results and their faith has increased. God is so good." (California)
"This month is two years since my husband and I have been separated, for a second time. Earlier this month my husband surprised my son and I. We were on an international flight on a week's vacation and my husband was the last person to board the flight. He advised the flight attendant that his wife and son are on the flight and he is surprising them. We had a wonderful time. He returned to his apartment on our return but he spent Christmas Day with us. God has a plan." (Florida)
“My husband came home a few months ago, but he did not come home clean. At first he wouldn't accept my love or God's love, but now he is letting me love him and coming to church with me and starting to get involved there. It has been a struggle and many times I wanted to give up. It actually seemed harder having him home not loving me and the kids than when he was gone, because my circumstance was right in front of me when he came home. I have cried out to the Lord so many times in desperation, and He has given me the strength to continue to do what is right in His eyes. I am trusting the Lord to finish the good work He started in my marriage, and I continue to cling to Him and His promises. He gave me this verse: Exodus 14:13,14. I just want to encourage everyone to NEVER GIVE UP and wait for God's perfect timing. He will NEVER fail you! I love You Lord!”  (Canada) 
“The Lord shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory. Last week I received a bill from my attorney to replenish my retainer money. I had no idea where I was going to get that kind of money. I placed the bill underneath my bible and prayed over it. On Saturday I went to visit my great aunt and showed her the bill. She ended up writing me a check for the amount. But that's not the end of the story. While writing the check she kept repeating that God was on my side. She finally explained that the week before she had just enough money to cover her monthly bills in her checking account. Something kept pushing her to cash in a mutual fund account. She didn't need the money, but kept thinking ‘just in case of emergency.’ Even the mutual funds administrator tried to persuade her to take money as needed. But she said something kept pushing her to take the money. I know it was God! Even my great aunt admitted it has to be God's work. My Jehovah Jireh is always dependable.” (New York)
I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer. Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Psalm 17:6-7 
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!  Isaiah 30:18 
“PTL. Since I'm praying for my spouse daily I notice major changes. He tells me he loves me and thanks me for a nice evening at home. Last night I was crying for my Lord and asked Him what to do. The Lord told me I was chosen to heal my husband, and that I had to stand strong. I started doubting again and I asked the Lord for a sign. I started listening to Stop Divorce Radioand immediately a teaching from Charlyne came on about how we are chosen by the Lord to heal our husbands and our family. This must have been a message from our Lord. Please keep on praying for all the prodigals. One day they will come home.”  (Netherlands)  
“Today my spouse has flown in for a meeting (he lives in another province) and I've been stressing out because the girlfriend is also around. However, my faithful God has kept me at peace. I find myself (without realizing it)singing ‘Jesus loves me’ and ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’ the whole day! He called for us to meet and spend time with the kids. Praise be to God! Psalm 23: 3,5." ( South Africa) 
"The Friday before Father's Day my husband made the first step in coming home to our family. By Labor Day weekend we were all under one roof. Two weekends after that we were baptized as a family. Thiscoming Saturday we will be renewing our vows. Our faithful Father hasanswered my prayers down to every detail." (California)

“God is amazing! My prodigal left but I told him I loved him and would be praying for the restoration of our marriage. Praise God my prodigal is home. I still believe that he is being blinded by Satan but in my darkest moments I surrendered my life to Christ. God became so real to me. I see things now the way Jesus does. God is still working on my heart. I am not giving up. He is my Comforter, Counselor and Healer. I stand amazed at the strength God has given me. I know without a shadow of a doubt God will completely restore my marriage. My God is so big, so strong and so mighty there is nothing my God cannot do! Proverbs 3:5-6.”  (South Carolina) 

"I invited my husband for Thanksgiving dinner. He said yes, without hesitation.  We had a blessed day.  We shared the day as a family all participating in the activities and going down memory lane. Much healing is taking place in our family.  God is so good, He is so faithful.  Thank you for your daily words of encouragement." (New York)

"God is faithful, He has shown me that His work is going on within my husband. I received a child maintenance payment from my husband which is something that hasn't happened for months. God provides for me and our kids. He is also helping me to forgive my husband continually. Praise You my Lord." (New Zealand)

“On Good Friday my prodigal called me because he wanted to see me the next day. The Lord is softening my prodigal’s heart. This was the first time in over a year that he has visited me for more than an hour. Easter weekend has been the most meaningful time in my stand because God chose that time to show me that he is bringing our dead marriage back to a new life.” (Ohio)

"I found this ministry a year ago, and decided to stand. My husband had decided he wanted a divorce and everyone told me to move on. I spoke God's promises daily and decided that no matter what I would trust God first. My husband woke up one day last week and his eyes were opened, just as I had been praying for months! He has cancelled the divorce, and is moving home. God is good, and it was worth every bit of the suffering to have my spouse home again!" (Connecticut)
“This has been a rough week and I was praying and apologized to God that my thoughts and mind were like scrambled eggs and my mind was going 100 MPH. I heard God speak ‘Be still and know that I am God’ and a Covenant Transport truck merged onto the highway beside me RIGHT then! I have NEVER seen one and have always wondered why I have been to 40 of 50 states and not once have I seen a Covenant Transport truck. God's timing is PERFECT! I was so excited that I slowed down to let the truck pass me so I could see it again!” (Georgia) 
“Last Sunday was my birthday and my husband did not call or come over to wish me happy birthday. I felt so down but immediately the Lord reminded me that He was in control. That night when I left for work, my office colleagues all wished me a happy birthday and brought goodies and treats. Thank You Lord, You are full of surprises. Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Thank You Lord Jesus, You blessed my day.”  (Canada) 
“Circumstances looked bad this week. But God! My daughter had to pick me up from work. On the way back I was listening to Third Day's "Revelation"and asking God (to myself) to release me from this stand. It isn't going to work. She doesn't want me back and I'm in so much pain. I had to stop for gas. I met an elderly lady who was having trouble with the pumps. I went to help. Long story short, she was praying over me and my marriage and told me (without knowing much information) that my wife is going to come back to Jesus and come back to me soon. She was praying over me with such confidence and faith I started crying. Everything lined up perfectly for me to meet her and her to confirm God's promise. Praise You God. (North Carolina)  
"After years of being separated and divorced, my husband and I were remarried in our pastor's office a few months ago. Earlier this year things were really rough. But God was faithful to His Word. He softened both our hearts and restored our marriage, our home and our family. Our communication is better than it ever was and it just keeps getting better. To God be the glory." (Maryland)
"I received a loving voice mail from my prodigal spouse wishing me a happy birthday three days early. His early call came on our wedding anniversary. It was God's perfect timing for a much needed boost of encouragement. Thank You, Jesus for a joyous birthday miracle." (North Carolina)
“My prodigal has been at church for some years yet recently stopped attending. I wanted to text yet am learning to let go and let God. The wonderful thing is that when I do let go and my husband makes contact, I am certain it comes from God and my faith soars. I prayed 'God please somehow let me know he's OK.' That evening he phoned! Totally unbelievable, after no contact for so long. God is working in both our lives and it blessed me to know that my prodigal does think of me from 'the far country.' PTL!” (United Kingdom)
“Our mediation is scheduled for next week and I received a questionnaire that has to be completed prior to going. After finishing it, I felt uneasy and concerned about the things that would have to be discussed. I'm trying to keep my lips zipped at all times, and don't want to say the wrong things during the meeting. This will be very tricky, so as I have done so many times since my stand began, I asked the Lord to encourage me from His Word. I flipped right to Jeremiah 1:17-19 and it was EXACTLY what I needed to hear! Praise God that He is with us through ALL of this!”  (Florida) 
“Although I am still waiting on God's timing for complete restoration, I would like to testify that after my divorce was finalized last year, my husband and I have been seeing each other every weekend for the last six months. My husband is still double-minded and has yet to show any interest in recommitting back to our marriage. BUT I know that God is faithful and He will complete what He began. I have great expectations for my suddenly! I am always encouraged by Joshua 21:45, not one of His promises failed...all were fulfilled!”  (New York)  
“My husband and I have been separated for several months. He is convinced that God wants us to divorce. We do missions work in Mexico. I have been in Canada winning the fight against cancer since we separated. He has not been here and hasn't seen the need to be here since he believes God wants us to divorce. The other day I received an email from our pastor saying that my husband is coming to Canada to work on healing for himself. Praise the Lord! Praying his eyes will be opened to God's truth! He is a man who fears the Lord, but has been blinded by the enemy. God is able!” (Canada)
