"I spent the last week fasting and praying for supernatural intervention from God. On my way home today from work I saw a license plate that read Isaiah 62 and then I saw a Covenant truck. I started praising the Lord and thanking Him for what I know He has already done in my marital situation and for what I know without a doubt He will continue to do. To God be all the Glory. He is worthy of all praise, honor and glory." (Ohio)
"Thank you for teaching me to stand. We are reconciled and trying to walk together in Christ. Our children are happy as are my wife and I." (South Carolina)
“The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”  Zephaniah 3:17
God is moving. My husband showed up unexpectedly on Thursday night and wound up staying over through Monday night. I didn't question it; I just praised God that He is moving. God has promised it and I am walking in victory.”  (New Jersey)   
"Thanks to God and your ministry my husband and I are celebrating a year since we got together after a long separation. It has been a difficult year to me since he did not come home as the man I would like him to be. Now he is attending church with me and the kids every Sunday and praying with us each morning. I am sure the Lord is doing the cleaning while I keep my lips zipped." (Mexico)
"My husband and I separated last year. All along he gave me the impression that our relationship was hopeless, but today he called me to say that he loves me. Praise the Lord for beginning to move the mountain of anger and soften his heart." (New York)
"I recently had a career opportunity come up out of state. I found my wife and spilled my heart; that if I made this move, I would still wait; that everything I accomplished was hollow without her. She seemed a bit shocked in the beginning, but then praised me for doing something good with my life." (California)
“As I read the story of Lazarus, a scripture jumped out at me: Jesus said to them, 'Unwrap him and let him go!' I backed up a verse: Then Jesus shouted, 'Lazarus, come out!' And Lazarus came out, bound in graveclothes, his face wrapped in a head cloth." I realized, this is what Jesus is saying to our spouses: ‘Come out of that grave of sin and darkness.’ Our spouses are bound in the grave clothes of sin and whatever bondage Satan has them in, their eyes blinded by the lies Satan has told them, as if wearing a head cloth. But most importantly, Jesus is telling Satan, ‘unwrap them and let them go!’ I prayed this verse with my spouse's name in it. I had been discouraged, as I had no idea if I would see my spouse at Christmas, judging by his behavior. The next day, God began orchestrating things so that my spouse and I were able to spend Christmas Eve, Christmas and two more days with our kids and show each other acts of love and compassion. We are not restored, but I believe we will be. God is so good and His ways are not our ways.”  (Arkansas) 
"Just weeks after our divorce was final my husband called me and told me he should have never walked away from me and that he was miserable. Later he moved in with his mom and we went on a date. I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do. I have overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of my testimony. God is in control." (Georgia)
“Today is a wonderful day amidst my standing struggle. I prayed all weekend that God would take the cup of suffering from me and I felt that this week good things were coming. Blessings started flowing in when I awoke! Isaiah 61:3- He sent me to comfort those who grieve, to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes.Since my standing and walk with the Lord, God reminds me of scriptures randomly in my head at the right times and this scripture came to me today after a Christian painter agreed to paint my 'marriage struggle story.' He takes a personal testimony and is inspired by God to paint it. I never thought my story was that important to God, but it is. Many other wonderful things are happening today. I can't wait to see what the rest of the day brings. Praise God!” (Arizona) 
 "I have posted several court dates over the past year. For reasons that God knows, they have been delayed. We were scheduled for a jury rial and even picked a jury, but after lunch when we came back into te courtroom my husband (who filed) asked to cancel or get a continuance, saying he was not prepared yet. Praise to the Lord." (Georgia)
“Praise God, my husband has returned. It has been a year since he left and now he is back home. I praise God for this journey, it brought me closer to our Lord and changed me. My journey began with a fast where the Lord convicted me of my sin of divorcing my husband. Once I repented the changes began. Change began to take place in me and our God Jehovah is faithful to His Word. What an awesome God we serve. We are starting a new chapter in our lives.”  (Texas)
“My husband left and was in the far country for many months. He came home for a time, telling me it was just for the kids, that he still felt nothing for me. Although I still held on and prayed all day every day, he left again. Two weeks ago I signed divorce papers and signed for an apartment. BUT GOD! One night I had a knock at my door. My suddenly happened! My husband came home! Last night he told me he loved me. We still have work to do but God is so faithful. I still pray and fast for other marriages all around the world. To God be the glory!”  (Tennessee)  
“My two-year-old daughter and I have a prayer that we say together. This is how it goes, ‘Thank You Jesus, for today, and thank You Jesus for all the blessings on the way. Thank You for healing daddy's heart, and mommy's heart, and my protection and our family restoration.’ My mother was walking past the room my daughter naps in and she caught my daughter sitting up, praying that prayer on her own! She talks to God! I am in complete awe. Also, I taught my prodigal husband the prayer, but only this part, ‘Thank You Jesus, for today, and thank You Jesus for all the blessings on the way.’ So he and our daughter can pray together when she is with him at night. He now prays it with her and it brings a smile to my face because that prayer indicates the blessings God is doing and working on for our marriage and family. Praise be to God!”  (Arizona)

"I asked God for a job working from home and He gave me two. Now I can work at home while my kids are in school and still take care of the needs of my household. This is the first Thanksgiving in 3 years that I have been able to communicate with my prodigal. It was so special for me to wish him Happy Thanksgiving and to tell him that I love him even though we are not yet spending dinner together. I still thank God that He has blessed us to be able to communicate again." (Maryland)

"Divorce papers were delivered to my home. I asked God for a sign to let me know that He still wanted me to stand for the restoration of my marriage. He gave me three. God softened my husband's heart enough to spend Valentine's Day with me, including dinner. I continue to stand and to trust in my faithful Lord." (Illinois)

"God is so good. Because of delinquent employer situations, I had to let my truck go back to the finance company. I was out of transportation for four days. Now, I own two vehicles, both without any monthly payment. Both get better gas mileage than the truck and they came to me with filled tanks! I am blessed that the one vehicle (with its large financial burden) has been removed and two blessings are now sitting in its place." (Oregon)
  “My husband has been home for several months! Praise God, only He could have made it happen!  God changed his heart. Please standers, believe that prodigals do come back and stay home. Our marriage has been better than ever and God is now the center of it all! My husband is growing spiritually and I’ve learned to zip my lips. It was impossible, but God came down and made it possible. Trust Him only! As I was reading my Bible tonight I went to Jeremiah 24:6-7 and I had dated the day that the Lord gave me that Word. It was the day before my husband asked to come back home. I had no clue he was coming back, he had given me no signs. But I believed and claimed that promise to my family. And the Lord is restoring a double portion! Believe! Let go and let God! He is the God of the impossible and He will not give His glory to another!”  (Florida)
“My husband and I have been  separated for some months. He is living in another country. Tomorrow I will go there. For many days I have been praying that our meeting will be blessed by the Lord. Today in the Saturday testimonies I read where someone  said, ‘When he saw me, his hard heart melted and his eyes were open.’ PTL!  I feel that’s a confirmation. Good is great. I am excited to give a full restoration testimony. In Jesus’ Name.”  (Indonesia)
“My husband left several months ago. God has lead me to several places in the Bible. His most recent was Jeremiah 33. My ‘suddenly’ is around the corner. Hang in there, yours will be too. We serve an awesome God.”  (Colorado)
“All praise and thanks to God. My prodigal spouse has come home after many months of being away in the far country. I thank God for bringing me to your website to help me through the pain and loneliness. While standing, praying and fasting for my prodigal spouse, God increased my faith and showed me that He truly does answers prayers.”  (South Africa) 
"My husband filed my divorce. A week before our first court date, the hearing was postponed for a month. Before the second court date, my spouse's attorney failed to file the correct papers. Now it's again pushed back another month. I have been praying against every hearing and will continue to pray for the third court attempt. God hears our prayers." (California)
“I'd like to share two testimonies. The first one is I was battling a serious depression and contemplating suicide. My friend took me to a healing mass and I was healed! I haven’t shed a tear since. PTL! I decided to do my first real fast and this morning I was praying in my car asking for a breakthrough. At that second I looked up and saw a huge sign that said 'Breakthrough Experience" and then a restoration truck! And to top it off, my coworker called me to let me know she was praying for me and God put it in her heart that He was giving me a breakthrough! Coincidence? I think not. All our relationships and marriages will be restored. All we need is faith!” (Florida)
“PTL! After months of prayer my marriage is being restored! I am so thankful to God for the changes that I am seeing in my husband, our family, and myself. With God anything is possible no matter how hopeless a situation may seem. Let God take control of all areas of your life and you will receive blessings that are better than what you could imagine in His perfect timing!”  (Georgia) 
"Hi Guys, just a quick but impactful note. Last week, while at a Women's Conference, my wife (prodigal) heard from the Lord during a worship service, in her words, 'So clearly it was as if He was standing in front of me to restore your marriage.' Hallelujah! Our Lord is so good. Suddenly, her heart was in one place on Friday, BUT GOD turned it on Saturday!  She repented last Saturday. The next day, Sunday, at a church she was visiting, an itinerant pastor called out a sin she has been struggling with, specifically, in a congregation of 50 or so. So, unfamiliar church, unknown pastor, spoke a specific word for her! God is healing, working, restoring. Please pray that the Lord (He will, but I still need prayer) will bring full brokeness for all of us, and allow Him to rebuild what the locusts have eaten. Joel 2:25."  (Washington)

"Mother's Day began with breakfast in bed prepared by my daughter. I prayed to God that I would like to have my husband go to Mass with me. Twenty minutes later, the phone rang and my husband asked to go to Mass with me. He also took us to lunch. God does listen and answers prayer." (California)

My husband has been pressing hard to hurry the divorce proceedings along that I've prayed so hard would never happen. After sending my information back to my attorney with many financial concerns, I prayed and told the Lord that if He allowed this divorce to pass through His hands, I would still trust Him and not give up. Even though I can no longer fight this in the earthly realm, I can do battle in the spiritual realm. I soon got a phone call from a lifelong friend who lives two hours away. She asked if they could stop by. It was a school night, so this was strange. We visited for a while and then they handed me a gift and told me not to open it until they were gone.. They told me the gift was from the Lord, not them. When I opened the box it was filled with $4,000 of gift cards for groceries, gas, clothing, and cash. I wept because I knew God was telling me He will always watch over us and never leave us in want. He will be my perfect husband until my earthly spouse returns.”  (Georgia)
"My prodigal husband wants to see me. He told me he wants to leave the other person and come home. Praise God." (Texas)
"I got a sign from God. I have pictures on my computer as screen savers. I sat down at my computer and the screen saver was on. Up came a picture of my husband and right after that was a picture of Jesus. I know without a shadow of a doubt that Jesus was working on my prodigal husband. We serve an awesome God." (North Carolina)
“Tonight my out-of-town friend was spending the night and while wrapping Christmas presents, we were discussing restoration of our covenant marriages. I was talking about calling my absent husband about what he wanted me to write on the Christmas presents for the children. At that very moment the phone rang and he told me he had put the amount of money I had spent on presents in my bank account and please look after everything. My friend commented how much that incident had built up her faith...it was truly a God moment.” (Canada) 
“’...to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’” Acts 26:18 
"I continue to praise my Heavenly Father for He is faithful. This past December was the most meaningful I've ever experienced. All month long, the topic for every Christmas program, sermon, and message I heard was on nothing is impossible. Thank You, Jesus for Your promises." (Ohio)
“I am SO amazed at God's answers to prayer. Recently my husband has expressed concern for our children after many years of showing little interest. He is beginning to communicate with our daughter on a more personal level - something he has never done before. At the same time God is giving our daughter the strength and courage to communicate honestly with her father whom she dearly loves. I know God is turning my husband's heart back to both our children. Praise be to God for His incredible promises and His faithfulness. God is softening my husband's heart and I know He will restore our marriage according to His promise.”  (Minnesota) 
"I went to a service at the church where my prodigal grew up. The first thing out of the guest speaker's mouth was that God was telling him to pray for restored marriages. What a witness to the hundreds attending. Praise God." (Virginia)
“I have been waiting for my wife. I was starting  to feel discouraged and I felt my faith failing. I prayed that night for my wife, my marriage and I also prayed that God would give me a sign that I was doing His will and I wasn't just kidding myself. I went to sleep expecting a dream or something, but when I woke in the morning, there was no sign. I started to feel defeated. Then my cell phone notification sounded and I opened a daily Bible verse app on my phone. The verse for the day was Malachi 2:16. I just stared at it and thought it was a coincidence. I closed the app, but decided to reopen it to read it again, except the verse for the day was actually Psalm 50. It remained Psalm 50 all day. I know it is God's will for my marriage to be restored.”  (Pennsylvania)

"We serve a mighty God. Suddenly my beloved husband stated he wanted to move back in together. We found a home that made my spouse say it was going to be our new home. We decided to apply for it, got approved and received the keys all within one week. We are spending this weekend moving our things into our new home. God has answered many prayers and brought my beloved spouse home. He is faithful to His promises. Praise the Lord." (Connecticut)
“Glory and Honor to my God. My husband returned home after several months of living in sin. God fulfilled His promise.  I came to Your feet, sad and with great need of You. You opened your arms and comforted me.  Thank You my Lord. Forever I will worship You, because only in You I put my trust.  If You are for me who can be against me?” (United States Minor Islands)
“God is working on the other side of my mountain and nothing is impossible for GOD. (Luke 1:37) God does know what we need and He always provides answers in His perfect timing. I was under attack and becoming weak. Suddenly, I received a text out of the blue from my husband and he asked, 'Could I forgive him as Jesus forgave us?' Did I really believe that we could forgive each other as so much has happened? I answered, I have forgiven him and I do believe through Christ that yes, our love and life would be new. He was welcomed home with love and joy. My restoration is coming and my marriage will be new. This was a miracle and a confirmation from GOD that he is control and all will be renewed. Fellow standers please remember Psalm 37: 4–Take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Keep your focus on the Lord and he will do a mighty work.”  (New Jersey) 
"Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old." Psalm 25:4-6
"For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you." Psalm 84:1-2
"My husband and I had been separated several months. I have been standing for the past month and had such peace that he was coming home. Yesterday my husband came over and told me with tears that he wants to be with his family and that he knew he belonged at home with us. He often awoke at night wishing it was all a dream. We serve an awesome God." (Georgia)
"Praise God for His faithfulness. Out of the blue, my dear husband told me that he is seeing a Christian counselor every week. May he clearly speak the truth of God's Word to my husband, and may my husband be ready to respond to God's call. (Note to self: Better de-clutter the house because I think my suddenly is coming.)" (Virginia)
“My wife and I had been having problems for many years. I hit rock bottom and found your page online. I just focused on Christ, asking Him to change me. I left her alone. Although she said that she wanted to leave me, I just kept my focus on Christ. He encouraged me to fast. I decided not to eat except when we ate together, which was at dinner time. God said that your restoration is imminent. The next day she confessed everything and asked God and me to forgive her. I still deal with a bit of hurt, but I had issues myself. I figure if God can forgive me for my sins, I can surely forgive her of her sins. She's one hundred percent committed to me, Christ and our five kids. All the glory goes to God.”  (Illinois)
“What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.”  Isaiah 46:11b 
Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back for good— no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother. Philemon 1:15-16a 
"Praise the LORD! The day before our wedding anniversary my husband and I met with the lawyer to dissolve the divorce. It will be filed with the court on our anniversary. My husband returned suddenly before Thanksgiving just as Charlyne has taught. Thanks to this ministry for declaring the good news about God's ways. To God be the glory for the great things He does. Only He can restore, and what He joins together let no man separate." (New Mexico)
"My husband has suddenly come home. He apologized for how bad he treated me and the children. He says he sees a change in me and that I am glowing. I told him that is the Holy Spirit." (Florida)
"I recently had to attend a big event in Nevada because of my work. I had very limited finances. I had asked my aunt to attend event with me. Before I left home, I had prayed and asked the Lord to provide on this three day trip. God is so good, I only had to pay less than $100. Praise the Lord. We were also blessed with free tickets to a concert and we sat up front. I thank the Lord. I did not think I could ever enjoy my life again." (California)
