“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 husband has made our family more of a priority again. PTL! Thank you for answered prayers. It is an amazing step in the 'home' direction. I pray God continues to guide him."  (California) 


"Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate." Psalm 111:3-4


“God works in mysterious ways. My spouse had a hearing today in a very contentious matter. I have not spoken to her for well over a year. It was so painful I asked God to cancel it but acknowledged He may need this to accomplish something. I was able to tell my wife I love her and the kids, I'm sorry for everything, that there is another way and that she is not the enemy. God used what could have been painful to make her hear what she has refused to let me tell her. God used me today in His service and I am just in awe. God always knows what's best. Trust HIM.” (Arkansas)


“God gave me a revelation today. Before Jesus died, He told everyone He would be back. Then when He died, everyone thought He was dead for good. But God is faithful and He keeps His promises and He arose! My marriage is almost ‘legally’ over, but it will be resurrected because God told me so! My prodigal has decided to go through with the divorce. BUT, I have peace. It's not the end! My hope is in Him!”  (Texas) 


“I would like to thank God that during our separation I have had daily contact with my spouse. I feel the pull of many false starts and just praise God for that! I would especially like to give praise to God that my husband has taken excellent care and shown tenderness and concern for me with a recent injury that required much assistance.”  (California) 


"I amazed at how our precious Lord gives me the grace and the strength to walk this journey of standing for my marriage and family. Each and every time when I have thought I could not take it any more, He has encouraged me to keep on keeping on. My relationship with Him has become more intimate and He is now my best friend. I vent to Him when I am angry or frustrated, get advice from Him, praise Him, worship Him and just spend time with Him. I never want to be without Him in my life, no matter what. He has never ever let me down. Thank you, my Jesus." (New Zealand)


"Praise to God alone. The other day my phone needed to be charged and I had left my charger at work. I prayed and asked God if I should call my husband and tell him I left my charger at work in case he called. I felt led to do so. I remember Charlyne had a situation much like that where she had to tell Bob something. I wanted to hear Bob's words on how he felt and thank God it was in Tuesday’s devotional." (Oklahoma)


"On Father's Day my husband and I went to breakfast. I walked out at first but then God spoke to me that my husband and I had set up worthless idols in our heart and God was destroying, not to worry that He would restore. I was so encouraged and went back to enjoy the time God allowed us to spend together. I am standing for the rest of my life for Jesus." (Texas)


"We are selling our home and had a contract but were waiting for the bank to approve. Our realtor told my spouse not to file for divorce until the house sells so there are not legal issues to disrupt the sale. This week the buyers decided to walk. This means it will take longer until my spouse can file. God is at work even thought my spouse doesn't know it. I gave the house and everything to God and I am waiting for His will to be done." (Tennessee)


"Praise the Lord, my husband is planning on moving out of the apartment he shared with the other woman and getting a place of his own." (Washington)


"After years of divorce, my husband and I were remarried last night with our two wonderful children as our witnesses. Your ministry was a gift from God during this walk of faith." (Ohio)


“Today's Forecast - 100% chance of Showers of Blessings. This is my slogan now. My God has truly blessed me and my family. I have prayed and taken a stand for my marriage to be reconciled but also for our entire family situation to be reconciled and it has been. Thank You, my Lord Jesus for being patient with me and teaching me during my wait. I had three clear answers from God early in my stand. 1. Don't give up. 2. Wait 3. He'll be home. I encourage everyone who is suffering to continue your stand. Our Lord does heal hurting marriages and hurting families. All the glory goes to my Father in Heaven.”  (Tennessee) 


"Praise the Lord, He promised my marriage will be renewed. But I need to be still and know that He is God. No more leaning on my own understanding. Yes, Lord I will be patient and obey your commands. Your grace will be sufficient for me.” (Singapore)


“Praise God, I had a wonderful answer to prayer this past week as I finally got my internship assigned after an agonizing seven months, and with the perfect team of people who hold my same work philosophies. Church people responded to my miracle with little faith, which inspires me to expect even greater things from our mighty God for my marriage! Tonight I was praying and asking God about my marriage and he showed me Daniel 10. Thank you Charlyne and RMM for praying and standing with me for the healing of my precious family. God bless you.”  (Arizona) 


“Thank you for writing, Do you know Saul's Testimony? Later that same day I received a nasty email from my prodigal. Instead of contacting prayer partners for support, or breaking down in tears, I reread your devotional. I copied the scriptures into my journal and I thanked God for allowing me this opportunity to grow in the Word, and my character, as I trust in the Lord's promises to me and not my husband's words. I am filled with peace and will continue to pray for my prodigal's Damascus Road experience. It's coming!” (California) 


“Thank You my Lord for filling me with Your promise. My husband and I are working on our marriage. Today I attended church and went to the altar to pray. I cried out to God but I didn't know if He was listening to me. I said please my Lord talk to me; I don't know what I'm doing, if I'm doing it right. Please let me know somehow that my stand is what You want. Right then a prayer partner put his hand on my head and he said, ‘God has a promise for you. ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your household.’Acts 16:31 I burst into tears. No one at my church knows my situation. And now I cannot wipe the smile off my face. What a wonderful God we serve. I now know my husband’s heart is returning to me and our kids. Luke 1:45.”  (Oregon)  


“Praise God for the work He has done in my life. My wife and I were apart, the divorce papers were filed and we were due to go to court in a few weeks. But I prayed and fasted and God heard my prayers. My wife called me and said she wants me to come back home to be a family. Our God is still working on marriages so pray and ask Him to restore. He wants to do it for you as He did it for me.” (Louisiana) 


“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”  Jeremiah 32:17 


“Happy New Year to RMM and all standers. Christmas was a difficult time for me and I am sure many standers, and I give thanks for the encouragement and support from RMM. God is faithful. While I didn't get my Christmas miracle, I kept praying and hoping that God's light would shine into my husband’s darkness. On New Year's day he came to the church service, spoke to my mother, and even responded to the birthday message I sent. Yesterday he attended our church prayer service. God is touching his heart and turning it towards Him. To God be the Glory. We serve a miracle working God.”  (Zimbabwe) 


“It’s been several years since I started my stand. It's been difficult, but I have His strong hand holding me. Each and every day I see little changes, that keep encouraging me to pray for my spouse and for all the other prodigals and standers. Keep praying, keep talking to God, do not faint. He will restore your marriage, as He's doing with mine. May the Lord keep blessing this ministry and all the standers.”  (Puerto Rico) 


"Halleluyah! My husband has cancelled the divorce after one year of no communication and court battles. Suddenly he wants his family back. Praise God for He is mighty. Thank you, Charlyne and Bob. Your daily 'Charlyne Cares' email helped me a lot." (Austria)


"After months of standing in the gap and praying, the Lord has softened my husband's heart towards me. We have spoken on the phone three times in the last month. On Father's Day, I was honored to pray for my husband as he received the healing prayer. God does hear our prayers! Through the Holy Spirit's prompting and submitting to God and my husband and learning to respect them, I live in peace as I wait for the Lord to grant our total restoration experience one day at a time."  (South Carolina)  


“I have been standing for many years. Thursday the judge stopped the foreclosure sale on my home of 23 years just 10 minutes before it was scheduled! (He loves the 11th hour!) My prodigal cannot do enough to help me get the house we will rent ready for me and the children to move into. He is paying for a lot of repairs and renovations. My prodigal niece, whom we raised, was standing next to me in church yesterday for the first time in 17 years! God is so faithful as He has promised to bring back ALL my prodigal family members! The others are on the way too!”  (Missouri) 


“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) 


"Today was our first divorce court date. Praise God it was postponed for another day. My spouse doesn't believe God can heal our marriage but I do. We serve a mighty God that has everything under control." (Georgia)


“My wife agreed to go to dinner with me. I was very nervous because one month earlier she said no to dinner. I prayed for direction and God said, 'It is finished.' I then asked God for confirmation. He led me to Hosea 6:2. I was floored and asked God for a sign because what I just read was amazing. Shortly after that I saw a Covenant Transport truck parked in an area where if parked any other place, I would not have seen it. Dinner that night was amazing. Jesus!”  (Colorado)


"God has perfect timing. After months of separation in different states from my wife and daughters, God's vision has been evident for us to see. My wife and I and our children are planning to be home again with each other in a neutral state where we can continue to grow in our commitment to Christ. Thank God for your ministry." (Georgia)


“I am quite a longtime stander and find Saturday Testimonies very helpful. But I have to admit I've often struggled to understand what they mean by 'having a blessed time/day' if it didn't directly involve the return of their prodigal. Well, now I do! Over the last few days, through His Holy Spirit, I have felt the Lord drawing many strands of life together - some recent and some from way back. Don't ask me how, but I know that I know that God is moving the mountain of divorce in our family! God can do anything  - praise His Holy Name that is above all names.”  (United Kingdom) 


"Without my asking, my husband sent me several email telling me how he put money into my IRA and more money in my business retirement account. I'm so grateful for these financial signs of love. I am confident the Lord is softening my husband’s heart so I'll be seeing the restoration of our marriage." (Wisconsin)


I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass. Isaiah 48:3


“When my husband left I cried to God for comfort on my ‘future divorce.’ He gave me Ecclesiastes 5:4. I reread my wedding vows to make sure. Still angry that God would ask me to ‘stand,’ I searched divorce and found your website. I gave God an ultimatum of six months. I was stubborn and proud! It’s been a few years now. Before the first OW came, I dreamt about her so I was prepared. When my husband was with her, I dreamt about the second OW and she would be divorced so I knew that after that relationship ended there would be another. I prayed and fasted for a job and had a dream to apply at a hospital. I did and got the job but had no clue that God would put me to work with the second OW! I don't fight God anymore. I trust Him. He broke my will. I'm facing my fears. I am now looking forward to obeying God and showing the OW kindness. God is changing me. I've had dreams that my husband is lost and trying to find his way home and he comes home.”  (Texas)


“God is so good! I have been standing for several years and while I always send a Christmas gift with our sons, my prodigal has never acknowledged me on holidays. Last Saturday morning, while waiting for my prodigal to drop our boys off from an early Christmas celebration, I was reading the Saturday testimonies when our front door opened and I heard my prodigal call my name! He hasn't stepped into our home for years and he wrapped his arms around our boys and me and wished me a Merry Christmas! Our first Christmas apart, our Lord gifted me with Habakkuk 1:5!”  (Illinois)


Join the many standers and prayer warriors who pray for all the court dates on our Court Pagepraying that they will be canceled. 


"My prodigal recently stopped paying medical bills causing collection notices to come. Instead of contacting him, I prayed and knew that God wanted me to start paying them. I sent a payment to one account for $45. Sunday I received a note from my pastor that someone had left $50 in the Church office for me. Praise God, that bill was covered. No one knew about the bills but me." (South Carolina)


You can read the history of Covenant Transport trucks and standers from-


"Today our Pastor spoke on Restoration. We sang a song that said... "I'm reaping the harvest God promised me, take back what the devil stole from me. And I rejoice today, I will recover it all." He encouraged us "Go take it back, God is with you." It was very encouraging! I know He's working behind the scenes. During this three year separation from my prodigal, God has blessed me very much. My biggest blessing...my son was baptized last October. God's been telling me to trust Him this year and I'm feeling so in love with my Lord and Savior. Thank You, Lord!" (California)


"My husband does not go to church with me yet. Today it rained and my husband called me outside to see a rainbow. We realized it was a double rainbow. I have only seen two double rainbows in my life. The first was when I was standing for my marriage. At that time God promised me my marriage would be restored. This time I feel God is saying my husband will be restored to Him. Praise God." (New York)


“While reading the Saturday Testimonies, I was praying that I would hear from my spouse. I had just said that prayer and my phone rang. It was my spouse! Thank You, Heavenly Father for answered prayers.”  (Arkansas)


"My prodigal and I are separated and money has been tight. I have been praying for a way to pay off my credit debt to ease the burden. During this time, I have faithfully tithed at my church and donated to other ministries when God spoke to me, often stepping out on faith. Last week, I received three years worth of stipend checks that more than covered all my debts and allowed for me to keep a promise made to my children when I first started college. Praise the Lord for He is so awesome." (Virginia)


"God led me to write a letter to the other woman to tell her I forgave her and to witnessed to her about God and letting her know I am praying for her. My children sent a recording Christmas card to their daddy saying how much they love him. Thank You God for softening my heart." (Rhode Island)


“It was our wedding anniversary this week and the Lord has blessed me with many verses that let me know that restoration is here. This time last year I was without hope and in despair but this year I am praising our Lord for all He has done and for all He is going to do. I wanted to share one of the verses with the beautiful standers. Isaiah 62:6-7 'On your walls Jerusalem, I have placed sentries. They must never be silent day or night. They must remind the Lord of His promises and never let Him forget. They must give Him no rest until He restores Jerusalem and makes it a city the whole world praises.' God is telling us in His Word that we must never stop asking Him to do all that He has promised! This whole chapter is full of the Lord's promises.Your land will be called "happily married."’  ‘The Lord has made a solemn promise and by His power He will carry it out.’ ‘Go out of the city and build a road for your returning people.’My husband is on the way home! All glory to God who is able.”  (United Kingdom)


"O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago." Isaiah 25:1


“Thank You Heavenly Father for speaking to me. I was driving on the highway, wondering if I'd see a 'Kingsway' truck as the Lord has shown me these many times in His perfect timing. I had a fleeting moment of doubt - perhaps I was reading too much into these trucks. Just then on the opposite side of the highway, a Covenant Transport truck zoomed by! I almost lost control of my vehicle as I live in Canada and did not know they traveled north of the US border! I had never seen one. I was utterly shocked.Three years into my stand and the Lord is still surprising me! Thank you for encouraging me and shaking me free of my doubt. I love you. Amen.”  (Canada)


“We have been separated/divorced for several years and I have been standing. My prodigal and I have always maintained a good relationship and we saw each other every other week to exchange child support. We took our son to college orientation and we shared a hotel. I wondered if he would come by now that there was no more child support to be paid. Praise God, he still gives me money and still comes by to spend time with me. I feel love when he holds me and when we kiss. Praise Jesus our mountain is moving. The moment I let go and let God is the moment I saw changes. I'm sitting back and allowing our Lord to win this battle. His will be done. Luke 1:37.”  (Texas)


"After months of no face to face contact, I awakened in the middle of the night with the clear instruction to ask my husband 'Are you all right?' I obeyed and emailed him those four words. He responded immediately and within a couple of days I found myself in his company for a friendly visit with my pets who live with him. The meeting gave me the chance to smile at my husband and convey unconditional love. Praise Him." (Kentucky)


"God is working in my husband. He knows my Mom likes flowers and he has taken a lot of pictures of flowers and sends them to our daughter. He has been asking our daughter to do a scrapbook for her Grandmother for Mother's Day. She is in the process of doing it. I suggested she make it from her father as well as her, since he took the pictures and it was his idea. She asked him and he agreed. Praise the Lord, my husband still remembers my mother liking flowers so much." (Canada)


“I have been praying for God to bring my husband home. It has been many years since my husband left to be with someone else. He has missed so many Christmases but this year he spent two days with us. He says he is happy with his new life but he knows I still pray for his return. He was here and I could tell he has missed his family. God brought him home, even if only for a few days. That was just a confirmation to me that God is working on his heart. God is good!  What a wonderful Christmas gift for me from God Almighty. I know that God is still working on the other side of the mountain and on his heart. To God be all the glory. I love you Jesus.”  (Texas)


“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.”  Luke 15:20 


“I just want to encourage standers to pray specific big prayers while their spouse is away. I did when my husband was away and the Lord answered! Praise God! Our God is so faithful! I pray daily for all standers!”  (Canada)
