"Special occasions and holidays have become painful to bear. My prodigal has not acknowledged any of them. I was feeling sorry for myself until I saw a billboard that read 'Your Father has sent you a gift-Jesus Christ.' I wept and repented. I have already received the most precious gift anyone could ask for; my Lord and Savior, Jesus. Thank You, Father." (Wisconsin)
“I see the misery that believing in self is causing my dear one. I believe God is faithful and has all the answers through Christ. May God have mercy on him, and help me to be a 1 Peter 3:1 wife. Thank you Rejoice, for your constant encouragement and commitment to God's Word!”  (Virginia) 
“I came across your website last year while my husband and I were separated. During that time I thought there was no hope for my marriage because my husband and I were not talking. He had moved into in his own apartment and was actively seeing other women. I cried and prayed and cried and prayed to the point where I was just about to give up because my prayers did not seem to be getting answered. Just when I was ready to give up on my husband and the restoration of my marriage, God sent my husband back to me. We have been back together going on four months now. Every day is a challenge but I am determined to continue to fight and make our marriage work. Please continue to pray for the restoration of my marriage as I will continue to pray for the healing of broken marriages all across the world. Thank you prayer worriers.”  (California)
“I praise God that my wife left and took our children with her. It was part of God's plan to break me. I was crushed and yet ever since have been lifted up by Him and His love and forgiveness. With serious doubts about being able to survive without her and my kids in my daily life, and with incredible guilt and shame, I sought help. Today I am doing well and my wife and kids are OK. It's been some time now and still no divorce papers served! PTL! God loves us so much more than we can ever hurt. I pray for my marriage restoration each day.”  (Washington) 
"We serve a God who does the impossible! My spouse left his non-covenant marriage almost 6 months ago and moved to another state. During that time (although I saw nothing!), God was 'moving on His side of the mountain!' He recently announced to me that he wants his family back as quickly as he can get a divorce. His heart indeed changed suddenly, and thanks to this ministry and the work of the Holy Spirit, I am ready to receive him back! Our God is faithful to complete the work He has begun, and restoration is always His will! Never give up on the Lord's promises! Thank you RMM! Thank You, Lord!" (Tennessee)
“PTL! Though my husband keeps saying he's not coming back and God has nothing to do with our relationship, I was able to tell him that nothing is impossible with God. I also told him I'll be waiting for him forever and that many marriages are restored by the Lord. I made clear the fact that our home's door is and will be always open for him to come back and he told me that he knows it's like that, but insisted he is not coming back. Today he admitted that he used to think that God was the one to blame for his misfortunes, but now he realizes that it is our bad choices that cause them. The Lord is softening his heart little by little despite the words he utters sometimes. Let's all keep on praying for our miracles to come in God's perfect timing!”  (Argentina)
"My fast ended on our anniversary. My prodigal came over and I gave him a card. We went to lunch and had a nice time. This is the first outing we have had since he left months ago. I continue to stand on the promises of God. Praise the Lord." (Texas)

"My marriage has been restored after months of separation. Even though my husband became a daily part of our lives before Thanksgiving, he didn't want to come home until after Christmas. I didn't rush him but allowed the Lord to work on his heart and now he has moved back in and wants to become a member of my church. Praise the Lord." (New Jersey)

“Praise God my prodigal is out of the hospital and safe from the earthquake in the Philippines. He is still very weak and still needs prayer. Thank you all for your prayers. That's not all...today the other woman called me to tell me she and my prodigal were getting married soon and I did not need to worry about him anymore. I explained to her my stand for our marriage. I sent a message to my prodigal as well reminding him of my love for him and reiterating my stand. He responded, telling me he didn't know about the email and he was not happy. My prayers against the relationship and for his eyes to be opened are being answered.”  (Texas)  
“After nearly 13 years away my wife has finished her relationship with her partner. This last week she has stayed in my (our) home and I have been staying with friends as she wants to be in the house on her own. All I did was say that the door will always remain open. This, with the foundation of prayer, made this all happen so that only God can have the credit.”  (United Kingdom)  
"I boast in the LORD for what He has taught me during this season. My husband and I had a court hearing. Thank You, Jesus that I was able to testify, on the record, that I do not want this divorce. Remember to look for the reasons to praise Him. He will provide many, many opportunities.”  (Pennsylvania)
“In a moment of defeat and feeling like everything I've prayed for, even when I know God has spoken to my heart to pray it, the opposite is what I've seen here on earth. I asked God for Him to confirm again in me He is working on my spouse and I shouldn't give up. Immediately He spoke Luke 15 to me. I opened up to Luke 15 and began to read about the lost sheep and then the prodigal son. Even though I've read them many times, I saw once again clearly God did not want me to give up; that He was seeking His lost sheep and that He would bring him back. I thanked God and I felt Him say to my heart, ‘I'm not done. Ephesians 5.' I began to read and He confirmed in me to keep walking in the light.Ephesians 5:8-10 (NASB)…for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. I knew again that God is asking me to keep going!”  (Nebraska)

"I am thanking God daily for His faithfulness and for moving in my husband's heart. I found out about his affair and by God's grace alone, have been able to lovingly walk alongside him as he's struggled to end his relationship, which he was finally able to do. We began counseling with a pastor from our church. There's a long road ahead, but God has placed a promise in my heart that He's going to restore my husband to Himself, to me, our marriage, and our family. To God be the glory." (China)

“I want to praise and thank You Lord for confirming your promise of restoration of my husband and our covenant with You! God confirmed to me by showing me a sign that said ‘restoration’ and then below it was my husband's name! Then I asked God if that was Him talking to me and He showed me an abbreviated license plate that said ‘right way’ and had our wedding anniversary on it! Thank You God!”  (California)
"My husband told me the military is transferring him to North Carolina. I was upset that we would be hours away from him. After much prayer and crying, God spoke to me and said to stop worrying because He is sending my husband to the city where we were married and lived for months until we were transferred years ago. We made many memories there and I pray those memories we made there will jog his memory of the love my husband has for me and our daughters." (Kentucky)
“I am divorced and have been standing for some years. I have seen no change in my spouse yet, but the Lord is using me in other ways. I was asked by my church to spearhead its ministry for divorced, separated and widowed persons. I thank RMM for the fantastic support that it provides on a daily basis.”  (Dominica)  
“I was recently served divorce papers. I have been praying for a sign from God to allow me to stand for my marriage because I did not see any hope anymore. Today I asked God, ‘Do you really want me to stand for this marriage because if you do I need a sign.’ Later on that day, I was driving down the road and saw a Covenant Transport truck pass me by. I just shouted because I had never seen one before. I almost cried. This increased my faith instantly because I almost gave up on my marriage. I know healing is coming soon.”  (Maryland) 
"Praise God! I kept standing for my marriage and after 6 years of separation we are now back together in our home. We serve a God who can work suddenly. Never give up." (Delaware)
“My husband wanted a divorce. I was devastated and lived every day walking on thin ice. God truly answers prayers and I have seen changes in our relationship slowly but surely. My spouse who had been hostile is now talking with me. God has removed that bitterness and anger in him and is rekindling our love for one another. God is also changing my attitude and pouring His love into my heart to enable me to give more than expecting to receive. I know this is not yet the end of the battle for me until I see the day my spouse is wholly restored back to God but I will continue to fight the good fight of faith and stand firm for my family. God will truly never let anyone who believes down and I learned that He will never waste away my pain.” (Singapore)
"Last night I was praying at church. I asked the Lord to speak to me to reaffirm my stand was the right thing for me to do. I received a call a few hours later from my former pastor in another state. He said that he was preaching that night on I Corinthians, Chapter 7. During his sermon he thought of me and wanted me to know that I was doing what was righteous and I would be blessed. God is so good to give me what I need on those very difficult days. Thanks for your ministry to encourage me daily." (North Carolina)
"My husband left for another woman. The only real contact that we had was about our children. I have been standing strong for my marriage the whole time. Two weeks ago my husband suddenly showed up one night, and we have spent every day together since. I know that God is leading us toward complete restoration, and will bring my husband back into a right relationship with Him one day. Praise God for He is faithful to all of His promises." (Colorado)
"I was struggling with whether God would answer my lowly prayer. As hard as I try I am a sinner and there are so many others who need their prayers answered. Why would my prayers be answered? I was even going to send one of those emails to RMM when I received a devotional that addressed that topic. I know God can do anything but didn't think he'd do it for me. The devotional helped me to see what was really going on in my heart and mind. It is doubt masquerading as false humility. That grieves God and deprives him of great works!"  (Illinois) 
The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.  Nahum 1:7
"After a few false starts I can say my husband is home. The situation looked impossible, but God does answers prayer in His perfect timing. Thank You Jesus." (South Africa)

After several months of separation with no contact, my husband called on July 4th to tell me and the children to have a safe holiday. He began to talk about marriage counseling and us getting back to together. He invited us to a game of his. That night he packed up and came home with me and the kids. This was after no contact and no hope other than the Lord for many months. It came so quickly. I pray now more than ever that we can be the husband and wife that the Lord requires us to be. Praise God." (Alabama)

"My husband told me he didn't love me and didn't think he had ever loved me. He left me for another person and soon was asking for a divorce. I was still reeling from these circumstances when my father was diagnosed with cancer. I began to cry out to Jesus and was led to your ministry. I read about the sightings of Covenant Transport trucks as signs with some amusement. Later though, when I was at my lowest point, I was at an intersection with a long light and I bowed my head for a few seconds and asked my Lord to please show me for certain I must continue to stand. I looked up and there making a long, slow turn in front of me was a Covenant Transport Truck. It must have come from around the corner while I prayed. I startled my daughter laughing and praising God. My husband suddenly asked me to take him back a few weeks after that. My husband now says he never stopped loving me and is committed to restoring our marriage. My father's recent tests show no sign of cancer and a rib that was involved shows signs of healing." (Louisiana)

“There is not enough room to tell all that has happened in the past year, but my divorce is canceled. On the day of my divorce, which I had submitted to the court page, my husband told me he was canceling the divorce. This summer I told my lawyer I didn't want a divorce and she said ‘This is going to happen.’ I said not if God has something to do with it. When we walked over to court, my husband’s lawyer had a hand written dismissal. The reason given, ‘Parties have Reconciled.’ The judge asked if any promises had been given and I said yes, God promised me he would restore my marriage! Many times I felt I couldn't make it one more day the pain was so great. But God! His promise to me was Jeremiah 33:10-12.” (Ohio)

I left work early to travel over a hundred miles to attend Easter Holy Thursday service at my church. I walked in and knelt to pray. Two pews ahead of me, where we used to sit, was my prodigal. God is amazing and I am so touched. Last year my husband did not go to church on Holy Thursday. He was the last person I expected to see. God is working on my prodigal's heart. (Minnesota)

"God is good. Yesterday my covenant husband called but I missed his call. He called again today. He asked about a few things and said he would call back. Praise the Lord." (Florida)
“PTL!! This testimony is for all standers. Please never give up! God never stops giving and He does hear your prayers. I have gotten so much stronger in my walk with God that there is no way I would ever stop praising His name. I had never seen a Covenant Transport truck until I found this ministry. I cried out to God one day while driving and I saw the truck. This month alone I have seen seven trucks! God is changing me, my kids and my prodigal. He is worthy to be praised! Don't quit!”  (Pennsylvania) 
"I prayed that God would draw my husband back into a local church. While on my way to worship this weekend, I saw my husband's vehicle parked at the church he had been attending. It just made my day to know the Lord answered my prayer." (Georgia)
“I have been standing for my wife for several years when she was granted the divorce she wanted. I recently messaged her that I doubled the normal amount that I put in her account because I will be on a mission trip over the next pay day and wished her a Happy New Year. My messages to her have always been met with one or two words, cold responses. This time she wished me a Happy New Year (calling me by name which she hadn't done for years), to travel safe and God bless. I am so encouraged to evidence that God is at work on the other side of the mountain! I will continue to honor God by keeping my vows until my last breath. God Rocks!”  (Colorado) 
"My husband served me with divorce papers the day after our anniversary. The next day he returned to the city he lives in. He told me that he presented them to the OW in hopes that she would resume her relationship with him. She didn't. He has been in daily communication with me and has turned to God because of his desire for the relationship with the OW. The Lord has been faithful to me and has helped me to forgive my husband and the OW and focus on what He is doing in my husband's life. He is answering my prayers. He has removed the OW, my husband is seeking Him (regardless of the reason or circumstance) and he has started going to church, praying and reading the Word of God. He has even said that he wants our family to move to the city he is currently living in. The effectual fervent prayers of the righteous man availeth much.James 5:16 (KJV). I know that God is going to turn my husband's heart back to our family. My trust is in God and God alone."  (Oklahoma)
“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)
“Some months ago, my husband moved to a different state and started a relationship with another woman. Before he left, he filed for a divorce. My prayer partner and I prayed that it would not go through. Well, the default was approved earlier this year. However, he has yet to do the final paperwork to make the divorce final. I don't know what is going on, but I can only leave it in God's hands and not worry.”  (Oregon) 
“The devotionals and this community have helped me focus on God and to stand. I've felt that this has been such a tough and dark time in my life, but God has always been good, providing firm blessings, answered prayers, and encouragement every step of the way. My husband now regularly visits me and our baby, stays the night, goes out with us on occasions, and is intimate and very caring with me. We've come a long way and I am grateful to God. I need to trust God and do better with my temper and patience. We need to understand the prodigal's emotions, zip our lips, and be steadfast in our stand and love. PTL.”  (Philippines) 
"A few months ago I signed divorce papers and mailed them to my husband's lawyer. Last week an envelope came in the mail with a sticker that said 'Return to sender. Moved left no address.' Not knowing what to do, a friend admonished me to stand still. I am now waiting on the Lord for instructions, but for now God has reminded me that He is fighting our battles. Praise the Lord." (New Jersey)
“I just have to give God all the credit and glory for what happened a couple of days ago with my spouse. She was leaving on a trip and I got a chance to talk with her for two hours. Jesus gave me the opportunity to ask for forgiveness and she told me she already had forgiven me. I got to tell her about my stand and how serious I was. Even though she told me in a loving/concerned way that she wasn’t interested in relationships anymore, I know my God is at work! He kept me strong and gave me the words to speak. As we were leaving she made a joke that Jesus was going to change her on this trip and that He would be telling her to come back! Keep standing strong standers!”  (Tennessee) 

Praise the Lord, my husband came home. He wants to work on our marriage and for the first time in years has asked me what I need for him to do to show me he loves me. I am so grateful to God. Nothing short of a miracle from God brought him back to me. (Kentucky)

But Samuel replied: “Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.”  1 Samuel 15:22 
"Blessed is she who has believed that what the LORD has said to her will be accomplished!" Luke 1:45

"The Lord unfolded a series of events which led to our restoration. We didn't plan on marrying in December this year, but God did. It was not by coincidence that we wore green and white just days before Christmas. Just as white symbolizes the grace and forgiveness of God, so green symbolizes new life, new beginnings, and growth. During our years apart, I attended Christmas Eve services. Each year their candlelight service had a theme. This year the theme was 'Promise Fulfilled.'" (California)

"My husband is an in-home prodigal. Our anniversary is coming up soon and it has been difficult to think about how to deal with it. Over the last few weeks God has been showing me He was there when we spoke our wedding vows. I found one of our wedding pictures where there is a picture on the wall of Jesus and it is like he is looking right at us. A great reminder that He was with us back then and is still with us today."  (Michigan)
"God is good. My wife and I are a signature away from divorce. She has the papers in her hand, but out of the blue she emailed me that she has stopped running from God and wants to turn her life around. She hasn’t said she wants to come back but she hasn’t signed the papers either." (Canada)
"I found a church yesterday. I took my daughter and God truly blessed me through this service. I can't wait to return." (Florida)
“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)
“Last night was my son’s birthday and my prodigal asked if he could join us for the dinner! We had a great time and the next day he asked to meet me again!”  (Tennessee)
"It has been months since my wife and I separated. Through finding Rejoice Marriage Ministries, attending a wonderful church and reading His Word, things have started to change. My wife can see the changes that have taken place since Jesus has come into my life. I had been praying to have our Lord work on her and move her to come with me to church. Last Sunday not only did we go to church, but she spent the day with me and then we went to evening services together. God will restore our marriage. I laid my marriage at the Cross." (New York)
"Although unemployed and bill paying is so uncertain, I had the nicest, most stress-free Christmas, focusing on the real meaning. Although difficult to do at times, I am stepping out not knowing how things will be taken care of, but trusting God will take care of my needs. Although my timing is not God's, He has not failed me." (Minnesota)
