Below are excerpts from a few of the testimonies we have received in the past week, each shared with the writer’s permission. These are not to tell you how to stand and what to do, but are given here to share how God moves when people are praying. Do you have a testimony to share to encourage others?

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”  Isaiah 42:16

“I want to give God praise. He has brought my husband back home! My husband told me he was leaving and after doing so, met the OW. I was completely in pieces at first. Jesus continued to work on me and I clung to Him. He held me up when I didn’t know what to do. He just said trust Me, focus on Me – not on what your husband is doing. Someone sent me a link to RMM. I knew that the Lord sent it my way. I kept telling my husband that this was always his home and that I have forgiven him. God gave me His strength and reminded me that the things seen are temporal and the things unseen are eternal. Praise God, my husband came back home. Little by little he began to fall back in love with me and after a couple of months put his wedding ring back on. It’s God’s will that your marriage is restored. Keep pushing through, don’t give up on your spouse, they need your prayers! When you don’t know what to do, rest in Jesus. Pray, praise and trust your Heavenly Father.”  (Texas)

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:18

“Be encouraged! God is making grand moves and leaving me in awe at the beauty and how detailed His redemptive story is. After several years of being divorced, my husband and I shared an entirely perfect weekend together. It was all God! I am in awe that out of complete darkness God brings forth hope. My husband even came to church with me and cried through worship. I stood their worshiping my God, my ‘ex’ husband by my side, a moment I dreamed of and prayed for for years… it happened. I am overwhelmed at the goodness of our God, at the beauty in redemption. Though my husband hasn’t fully returned, God is working it all out. Though we’ve been apart, God continues to grow us as one. Standers, we need only agree with what God is doing, praise Him in the waiting and love recklessly. I wish we could share coffee so I could express just how twisted and impossible this journey has been… but God! ‘Surely it will be better than anything you’ve ever dreamed of or imagined.’ Truly it is!”  (California)

“Although my marriage is not fully restored today, God’s hand is working all over the other side of my mountain. The men’s devotional raised some questions in my spirit this week. Specifically, ‘What if God’s will is for the OM to be in my wife’s life for longer,’ stopped me in my tracks and reminded me, God’s will not mine. I had been praying for my wife’s salvation and her return, but adding remove the other OM in Your time, Lord. My pastor then preached about believing and receiving as one step, not two. That night I felt fully convicted and prayed to Jesus. ‘Jesus, I know the Father’s will be done and not mine, but for the sake of my marriage restoration, I call upon the Lord, the One who fights for me, to swiftly and quickly remove the OM from my wife immediately.’ And then I ran around clapping and praising because I believed it was done. The next morning, I woke up to a text from my wife saying the OM had returned to his own wife. Praise Jesus, His will be done!”  (Washington)

“I am giving God thanks for His goodness towards me. A couple weeks ago my husband called to say he was going overseas to work with the hurricane Irma victims in St. Maarten. They would stay in Puerto Rico (San Juan) and travel to the other islands that were affected to process and assist persons. I was happy that he contacted me and informed me of his plans as we had limited communications prior. I told him that I will be praying for the team and that I loved him. To my surprise he kept the communication open telling me of his daily tasks, what they were doing and everything. God is so amazing. I kept comforting him by letting him know that I am praying for their safe return. To God be the glory, my husband finished his work and left one day before hurricane Maria threatened San Juan. God got them out just in time. Praise the Lord Almighty for allowing my husband to witness His great saving power. I am praying for all affected by the storms.”  (Jamaica)

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.  Psalm 68:19-20

“I am still standing but the overwhelming peace of God has been with me more than ever this week. The divorce was filed a month ago. I have yet to receive the papers but when I do I will keep my eyes focused on Jesus. The Lord has worked up in me an unshakable spirit and I know the Lord will work everything out for my highest good. I know I will be back on here telling you all the good news of my marriage being restored! Praise the Lord! Praise Him through the storm!”  (California)

“I am grateful for the encouragement I get while reading the testimonies. My marriage has gone through lots of storms, but I thank God, we are now at peace. These testimonies give me hope for my marriage.”  (Kenya)

“God is great! I want to share a big breakthrough in my way for a marriage restoration. Last year was very hard for me, because on my son’s birthday, my prodigal and his family took him out with the other woman. I felt such a strong pain and cried a lot, and prayed to God asking for a miracle this year. He made it real, thanks to God. My prodigal moved to another country without the other woman. My son and I went to visit him for a week and spent our son’s birthday, the three of us together. It was a very nice time. Thank You, God. I know I have to be patient. In His time, God will complete His work. Each day I pray God to help me rest in His promises. Don’t give up. God is able to give us more than what we ask, according to His mighty power and glory. God is faithful!”  (New Jersey)

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)

“My husband came in early last week. The day before that, we had an argument and I didn’t think his visit would be a success. But God had better plans. Everything went well. God is so amazing. He helped me zip my lips during my husband’s visit. We enjoyed each other’s company. We were very intimate with each other, we went out to eat as a family, watched movies together and took lots of pictures together. I had to travel to another state and my husband stayed with my two oldest kids. He took them out to eat and to the mall. I was praying that God would turn his visit into a permanent stay but that didn’t happen. I know my God finishes what He starts so I’m waiting on Him. My husband said that he enjoyed himself. I pray that he wants to have that feeling all the time. I thank God for every moment. I can’t wait to see what else God has in store for us. Standers, do not give up! Hang in there.”  (Virginia)

“Praise God is all I can say right now. He is so faithful standers. Do not give up on your spouse, family or marriage. God is so very good. He will make a way in the wilderness and a river in the desert. Our court date was this morning and the judge dismissed our case. Thank You Jesus! We are still married! God has given us more time. We have a long road, the war is not over in this realm, but it is in the spiritual. Jesus is victorious. Devil your time is up. You must release our spouses now in the name of Jesus! To Him be the glory. Do not listen to those around you or to your feelings, trust in our Almighty God. He is on the throne and His will shall be done. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Holy Spirit. Focus on loving your spouse no matter what they say or do. Let God handle everything else. God bless you all. I am praying for all of our spouses’ sudden return to God and our families.”  (Virginia)

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”  Isaiah 43:18-19

“I am a Christian and have always believed God for healing and finances, but I never really knew or understood what God’s Word said about marriage, divorce, and remarriage. As a new stander, I am learning about God’s Word on covenant marriage restoration, fasting, specific scriptures to pray, and for God to change me. My testimony is how much God is answering my prayer to show me signs that something is happening behind the mountain of divorce. After hearing about the Covenant Transport trucks on your podcast, I asked God to show me a Covenant Transport truck along with other signs of my restoration. I have received an abundance of answered prayers: two dreams of my covenant husband wanting to see me, two separate posters – Restoration Ministries and Hope United Church – and multiple truck sightings!”  (Maryland)

“I praise God for His faithfulness. I am still standing in the gap for my marriage restoration. I feel so happy because God has answered my prayers for two families that were apart, and have restored, glory to Jehovah! I have faith that in the same way He did it for those families, He will do it for all of us who are praying for our marriages. I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. Psalm 18:1”  (Colombia)

“I’ve been struggling lately because I have seen no change in my in-home prodigal. This week I fasted and prayed for three days, asking God to draw near to me and please change my husband’s heart and make him into a godly man, a godly husband, and a godly leader in our home. Yesterday I missed a call from RMM. The message said, ‘We have prayed for you and your spouse today.’ Last night during a disagreement he informed me that he realized how horrible he sounds when he cusses. He is under conviction to stop and has not cussed in two days. A week ago, this seemed impossible. PTL! Answered prayers! I have prayed Ephesians 4:29 over him many times. I have asked God to show me He is working. He answered many prayers in that one moment and I know now that He is working! I know God is changing my husband’s heart. He will be a godly man, leader, and husband!”  (Mississippi)

Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.  Ephesians 4:29 (NKJV)

“My in-home prodigal returned fully last year. It has been a very slow restoration process and many times I want to give up. Even before we had problems, my husband didn’t wear his wedding ring sometimes due to the job he had and more recently due to the fact it wouldn’t fit. This has bothered me for a long time and when I would see his ring on his dresser I would pray that God would give my husband the desire to wear his ring again. A few days ago, my husband sent me a link to a new wedding band and asked me to order it for him. God answers prayer!”  (New York)

“Standers, hold on, keep praying, never give up. My husband is home! I cannot stop thanking God and praising Him for everything He has done, is doing and will do. It has been many long, devastating years. We are not restored yet, but he has been staying in the spare room. I am still praying for his eyes to be opened so he can see Jesus as I do and better. God has done so many things along the way. Things I’ve asked, things I just wished for, and behind the scenes. I am thankful for this long stand. Patience is invaluable and has helped so much with me with communications and dealing with my spouse. I am still praying and waiting. God will make all things new. I have seen so much evidence of this. Please pray his love for me to return, for remarriage and his salvation as I pray for you. Never give up. Praise the Lord! Hallelujah.”  (Nebraska)

“The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.”  Isaiah 60:19-20

    I would like to share a ☕️With the lady from California. I sit with you and declare victory and family restoration for all standers in the world. Better yet, Jesus promised to be there when two or more gather in his name. So it’s not just us two having coffee. Thank you lord Jesus for your promises that will surely be fulfilled.
