“I have been an alcoholic since a teenager, and a drug addict later. All the sins you can imagine with that lifestyle describe me. Yet my wife remained faithful; not only that but we never fought. She only would hurt and remain sad for years. But a faithful and a good wife she always was. I overdosed a few years ago and the doctor told my wife and family I was brain dead. But the prayers never stopped. Three days later I was awake. Her first words were, ‘I forgive you.’ It has been a long journey. I am a deacon in the church now. But for a long time I wanted God to explain to me how my wife could love me and remain faithful, never forsaking me. God answered… ‘It was not you that she loved the most nor was it you that she remained faithful to. It was ME she loved, her faith was in Me not you.’ So for me a marriage is not about serving each other. It’s about serving God!”  (Mississippi) This testimony had me crying. Here is a man with so many addictions to have a wife believe in the power of God. She continued to pray for deliverance and he even received a healing from the Lord. His wife persevered in prayer with tenacity, and continued to pray for impossible circumstances. She waited for the Lord’s perfect timing. Her husband’s heart has been totally transformed and he is now he is a deacon and is able to serve the Lord in their church! Dear standers, never give up on the power of God and what He has done for one couple, He will do for others as He came to seek and save the lost. Our God is no respecter of persons! May this testimony show you that with God nothing is too hard for Him to do. To restored couple: Thank you so much for sharing this testimony for all of us!” – Charlyne (posted 9/20/2016)

“Praise God. I just wanted to share that God does answer prayers, even in doubt. I lost my wedding band last year after taking it off in the car. I have searched and cleaned this car looking for my ring and after listening to my husband again say he didn’t want to work on our marriage. I went into my closet to pray and cry out to God. I asked Him why am I going through this and that I couldn’t do it any longer and for God to tell me or show me once again that He wanted me to fight for this marriage. No less than 30 minutes later I was getting into my car and there was my wedding band! Just sitting there as if I had placed it there on purpose more than eight months after losing it. He really answered me that time loud and clear. Please standers, don’t give up. My marriage will be restored in God’s timing as will yours.”  (Maryland) (posted 9/20/2016)
“The Lord has me fighting in prayer for my EH. We are divorced and he has been living with the OW. They were about to buy a house together. The Lord had me fast and pray day and night for that contract not to go through. About a week ago he told me he was moving on the weekend. Throughout the day the Lord kept giving me scriptures about trusting Him and having peace. I told the Lord that no matter if my EH bought that house, I would keep on praying for the restoration of our marriage. I started to sing praises to my Lord. That same day he told my mom that he was unable to purchase a house and that the reason he moved was because he could not live where he was living any longer. The Lord has promised me He will restore my marriage and bring back His prodigal son.”  (New Jersey) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL. Indeed, God does answer prayers. I’ve been standing for a few years now and have never stopped praying for my husband and restoration of my marriage. His attitude towards me had been terrible and I’ve always prayed to God to show me signs that He is working on him. I continued to be civil and courteous in all my communications with him, not relenting in prayers, until suddenly, he started being civil in his communications with me. For the first time in years, he apologized to me and I knew it was God. I’m starting to see his heart softening towards me and I know in just a matter of time my suddenly will happen! I noticed these changes when I started praying more for standers and prodigals all over the world. God is indeed faithful. What He said, He will do. What He promised, He’ll bring it to pass. The storms can keep raging, I won’t give up because I am 100% confident in my God. Praise God.”  (Nigeria) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been standing since my husband left to be with the OW. They have since broken it off, but my husband still wanted to pursue a divorce. It was finalized last week. This weekend, he revealed to me that he has already started dating someone new. Praise God! I was able to face the judge and accept our divorce and also accept the news of this new woman calmly and with grace. I didn’t get emotional or angry, even though I was hurting inside. My husband knows I am standing, even though he has asked me not to do so, and he has been surprised by the strength I have shown this past week. God helped me stand strong and deal with the news and has been preparing me for it for some time. God has assured me this is all part of the plan so I am trusting in Him 100%!”  (Ohio) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I went to Goodwill in search of merchandise for a house restoration and found a painting of the mountain harbor vista from the marriage ceremony location of my covenant wife and I. The painting was exactly like one I had given my children when they were voicing their homesickness (after the legal divorce) for the town they were born in. I was sad at first because my bride had thrown away yet another reminder of our family’s beginnings. But Abba turned my sadness into rejoicing by telling me, ‘Look, I have returned this painting to you just like I will return your covenant wife to you.’ That painting would have gone into the garbage if it wasn’t for God guiding it to Goodwill and then to me. Praise the Lord for His merciful encouragement.”  (Texas) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Bob’s books, Prodigals Do Come Home and A Prodigal’s Perspective, came a few days ago and I have been reading them non-stop. With Bob’s book in my hand today, I saw my husband pull up into my driveway, unannounced. We haven’t seen each other in a while, so it was a shock. After a false start and the arrival of a new OW, the enemy has been trying to get me down. But Bob’s books helped put things back into perspective and then God decided to affirm everything Bob wrote about. During these few minutes with my husband, God reminded me of what I’m standing for. The last time I saw my husband, he was cold and impersonal, but today I got a tiny glimpse that things may not be as they seem in the far country. He was kind, hugged me several times, and even kissed me! I am so overjoyed today, and can’t imagine how my heart will handle my suddenly! God is SO good. All of these tears and struggles will be worth it when restoration comes!”  (Florida) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I’ve been standing for my marriage for awhile now. I found RMM by accident and immediately knew it wasn’t by accident but that God led me to this website. When things first started and my husband left our family for the OW, so many people told me that I was young and could easily find someone else. But God told my spirit to wait and stand for the restoration of my marriage. And after many upsets and falling off the wagon many times, God still came through with His promises. My family is back together. My husband says he doesn’t know if he wants to stay or find his own place again but I know God did not bring him home for him to leave again. God is always faithful to His promises. And even though at times I felt alone, I know God never left my side. Hallelujah, glory to God. Thank You Lord!”  (Texas) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL. I’m still standing for my marriage. God has been good to me. God has been working on the other side of the mountain. My son said that every time he’s been to my husband’s place for weekends my husband and the OW have been fighting. I also received a promotion at work, almost double my salary. I give God the highest praise for my miracles. By faith I see my marriage restored. Hang in there, God is working.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/20/2016)
“God has spoken to me and given me many promises through His Word, giving me hope and strength through this journey. He has continually provided for my kids and me in supernatural ways. My own walk with Christ was in jeopardy because I was so devastated. Even though my spouse is now living with the OW in another county, God has already told me that it will not last. He has confirmed through many witnesses who are also praying and believing God with me. If you want God to move the mountain and do the impossible you have to dare to believe. The Lord still does miracles every single day. Do not count it strange that you are going through this crisis in your marriage. The devil hates God’s institution but is already a defeated foe. Don’t give up hope, do your part, faith without works is dead…having done all you can, continue to stand!”  (California) (posted 9/20/2016)
“God is faithful. I have stopped standing so many times in the last few years. God gave me the scripture John 14:1 and I am learning His will for my marriage. We are not restored yet and haven’t had much communication other than the kids, but God is working on my behalf. My husband has asked to help pay some of my bills. Sometimes he is even polite. I know the Lord will continue to strengthen me. God has supplied all my needs. I am back in school, finishing my degree. Standers, don’t be discouraged. Stand on the promises God has given you. One day I will have a full testimony; until then I will be praying for all prodigals across the world including mine. Thanking the Lord for my suddenly.”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Praise God. After many, many years of no talking, my husband and I sat and spoke with each other. My mother-in-law even joined us in prayer. We have agreed to be friends. It is a start. Keep the faith and be encouraged. This is ALL on God’s timetable.”  (New York) (posted 9/20/2016)
“What a journey this has been. Many years ago I stumbled upon RMM during a difficult time in my marriage, and become a stander. However, I became discouraged and gave up my stand. But God! Sometime this year, after another difficult year where I almost went through with a divorce, I was led to RMM again. This time, God has given me a peace that passes all understanding. My husband is a live-in prodigal and it is not easy at times. But I am learning to zip my lips, trust in God, and I am seeing a softening in my husband. I continue to stand and have to admit that the softening in my husband is a direct result of my unconditional love. I am letting God have His perfect way. In the meantime, I’m standing on His Word and enjoying perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). One day, I too will have a testimony of my suddenly and of God’s faithfulness, so that others can be blessed also.”  (Suriname – next to Guyana) I looked it up for us to know. – Charlyne (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been divorced from my beloved for a long time but we have contact and are friends. The other day I was reading some old saved emails from him where we were teasing and joking with each other. I was sad that I can’t do that now and silently wished that we could get back to doing that. Later that evening, my husband texted me and we ended up texting for a while and teasing and joking with each other, just like in the old emails. I didn’t pray for that to happen, but my Heavenly Father knew that I had wished for that in my heart earlier that day and by His love and grace, He granted my wish! What a loving Father we have! He knew what I wanted without me ever saying a word, He just looked into my heart. I ended the conversation with my beloved telling him that I am here for him if he ever needs anything. He didn’t say anything after that but I was happy to be able to show him God’s love and plant a seed.”  (Indiana) (posted 9/20/2016)
“What I promised you, I’m still going to make come to pass! God is still on the throne; what God has started in your life; He will make it happen. I encourage anyone reading this to never give up. I have been praying lately for signs that my husband loves me and have been longing to hear his voice. Praise the Lord, my husband called three times today. He spoke of coming home and told me he loved me and the children. He told me he has booked a flight to come home from the state where he is staying. He even told me I am the only woman worth his time. The Lord has softened his heart towards me and our marriage! Not only were my prayers answered but in the same moment my husband plans to fly home in two weeks. How suddenly and amazing is that? Never give up hope for the Lord will work all things together for your good!”  (Indiana) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL. My husband is home for a couple of months now. We were separated for a few years. Through prayer and fasting, he came home. We are working on our marriage. It is not easy but we are getting there. I am praying that he will seek God and be delivered from adultery as it seems he is still seeing the other woman. But God is greater. As He brought him home, He will change him. 1 John 4:4 is the verse I’m holding on to.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Praise God. After several years of separation and divorce, my husband and I were remarried this summer! It all happened very suddenly and our friends and family were shocked, but all I could say was, ‘God answers prayer.’ I’m so grateful for all the encouragement from RMM that kept me fighting for my marriage all these years through impossible circumstances. I know that this is just the beginning and my prayers won’t stop, but I’m so thankful for everything. God truly changed my husband’s heart of stone into one of flesh and He can do the same for you!”  (Canada) (posted 9/20/2016)
“My husband and I were separated for several months and I received a prophetic word that God would restore, and He did. Unfortunately, when my husband came back I expected him to be different, apologetic, and to make up for all the hurt. He tried his best but just couldn’t do it. My expectations for a normal loving marriage were just not met and this led to more arguments. What ended up happening is that he left again. During that time, I found RMM and I learned that I had things the wrong way. Sometime later, our merciful Father restored things. I have learned a lot this time around. I have learned to take my hurts to God, zip my lips, though this is still something I work on, to accept my husband the way he is, and allow God to be the One to work the change in his heart. Things are getting better, praise God. God will keep all of His promises if we will do things His way and are patient and give it time. God bless, keep standing.”  (Maryland) (posted 9/20/2016)
“My spouse has been working in a club for many years and him working in that club was a large deciding factor of our separation. God told me to march around the outside of that club seven times and pray. I’ve prayed every day that God would remove my spouse from that place and close the doors to him. This weekend I learned that he was kicked out of the club not once, but twice and this last time he is not allowed to go back. People ask me why he got kicked out. My answer, because God said so. God heard my prayer and He is working on my behalf and this is just the beginning of restoration in our marriage. I know my suddenly is coming.”  (Virginia) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I came across this ministry while surfing the web on ways to justify a divorce! Since that day of finding RMM I have grown so much by the encouraging daily devotionals. I got saved nearly 16 years ago and never thought I’d be in the valley that I’m in with my wife. I honestly never knew about ‘Standers and Prodigals.’ If only I had known, then (when all this came to a head) what I know now! I still make mistakes but I get back up and continue to stand. Isn’t that what a righteous man does after falling seven times? One day during prayer I just asked God what HE wanted me to do and He responded, ‘Wait, wait on the Lord.’ Upon hearing those words, I cried like a baby and here I am waiting on my God as He continues to renew my strength. Daily!”  (Nebraska) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Dear standers, God has performed the greatest miracle ever. My prodigal, diagnosed with a terminal disease last year, is completely healed! Even his doctors can’t understand it. The past year has been tough, but I’ve never stopped having hope. I formed a prayer group with five of my closest friends and in this week we fasted and prayed for a breakthrough. While things between him and I are not where I want them to be, I was very discouraged when he didn’t share his good news with me immediately and didn’t sound as excited as I was by God’s greatest blessing. But today God sent me a message via a bumper sticker on a car that said: Mark 16:15. ‘Go into the world and preach the good news to all creation!’ We serve a God of Miracles. I won’t let the enemy rob me of the greatest blessing ever by getting angry or disheartened. I choose to share that message around the world via Charlyne Cares. God is at work! Don’t give up, He is faithful and at work! Can’t wait for my prodigal to come back now!”  (South Africa) (posted 9/20/2016)
“My husband and I reunited last year. But he left again a year to the date he returned. I read the materials on the ‘false starts’ of prodigals, then was convicted when Charlyne said during Pompano Bible Study, ‘Stop being the Holy Spirit!”  It cut me to the core and I stood even firmer, did not ‘try’ to chase him down, call, etc. After two weeks we ran into each other on a fluke, but I knew it was God. He asked me to breakfast and I didn’t badger him with questions. He asked me for a dinner date a few days later and I didn’t badger. I can feel a shift in him – a sincere one. Looking back last year the ‘shift’ in him was filled with fear and angst. He said he was coming back. I just smiled and said, ‘Ok, when you are ready you’ll let me know.’ I praise God that this time I put everything into practice I learned last year, and standing has been much easier. Standers, stay close to God. The Holy Spirit doesn’t need our help!”  (Florida) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been standing for my husband for many months and have been trying to ‘zip my lips,’ but just couldn’t seem to do so. Two days ago, I called my husband and read him a scripture passage, thinking it would miraculously make a difference. It didn’t; I ended up pushing him farther away. After I hung up the phone, I flipped open my prayer journal and the first scripture passage was Lamentations 3:22-26. The words ‘wait quietly’ literally jumped off the page to me. The prayer that I had written after that passage asked God to ‘Guard my lips, Lord.’ I knew then that God was telling me loud and clear – Zip Your Lips! Let Me do this! One hour later, I opened my email to Charlyne’s daily devotional, ‘God’s Unfailing Faithfulness.’ In it, she also referred to Lamentations 3:22-26. Same scripture, twice in one hour! The miracle is that zipping my lips the past two days has been the easiest ever! God is so good and gentle in His reprimands and discipline. Thank You, Lord!”  (Virginia) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been separated from my husband for some time, during which time I have struggled with consistency. I was in one of my lowest moments when I finally came across RMM. God ministered to me powerfully through the daily devotionals, Q & A, and podcasts. I fall asleep almost each night listening to Charlyne’s podcasts. They are like a strong dose of God’s daily medicine for me. My prodigal continues to live with the OW, but recently expressed his confusion, saying he doesn’t know what he did wrong and how to start fixing things. I know my suddenly is coming. Have faith, standers, God is moving mountains.”  (Tanzania) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I recently received the unfortunate news that my covenant spouse has proposed to the OW. I was so devastated and over the course of a few days that devastation became despair and I was believing every lie of the enemy. As I ended my day of work and as I was about to fall completely apart, someone from RMM called to pray with me as I had posted this as a prayer request on the RMM website. The peace was instant and I have not felt anything but peace since we prayed. I’m so thankful for God who knows exactly what we need, when we need it and how we need it.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/20/2016)

“We have been separated several months now, with my husband and I having lots of contact. He has been seeing an OW and it’s been public all over social media. However, we spent every holiday together this year and lots of personal time together. I’ve just spent the last six days with him at his home where I saw clothes that belongs to the OW, but I prayed about it and tried to zip my lips. I prayed that God help me to not feel jealous of her because we’re still married, yet I felt like I was the OW. I realized that although their relationship is public to some, our marriage is holy and public in the sight of God and that trumps everything. ‘If God be for me who can be against me.’ Today he mentioned that we need to go house hunting. Even though he still says that he’s never going to be with me again, I am trusting God that our marriage will be restored and our suddenly will be soon.”  (Michigan) (posted 9/20/2016)
“His mercies indeed endureth forever. I want to praise God for His faithfulness. It’s been some time now since my husband left to be with the other woman but we are still married. He has threatened times without number to divorce me but he hasn’t followed through. It hasn’t been an easy time for me but God is true to His Word. God has never left me and my kids alone. We have experienced love from unlikely sources, our needs met in unlikely ways and to top it all off, God provided a job. I give Him all the glory. Standers, let’s press on. He is a faithful God. For l know the plans l have for you says He in Jeremiah 29:11; plans of welfare and not evil. He also gave me Jeremiah 31:16 (ESV) – Thus says the Lord: “Keep your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, for there is reward for your work, declares the Lord, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Last year about this time my husband came home only to leave ten days later. Months after that he started coming around and calling me every night Three weeks ago he called me and told me he was not in love with me. Tonight I prayed for the Lord to give me a sign that my marriage would be restored and my husband called. Praise the Lord! He did not tell me he loved me but I was able to tell him I did. I pray this is the pendulum clock Bob talks about and my suddenly will come soon. God bless all of you and I am praying for all of your suddenlies. Thank You Lord Jesus for answering my prayer tonight.”  (Arkansas) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I was just so moved by the Holy Spirit to give my testimony. I have been standing for some time with a few false starts. Last year my husband and I separated and a child was conceived with the OW. I was devastated but remained faithful to God’s promise of restoration. My husband soon returned home but after a bad fight, he left again and went back to the OW. I felt so angry and hopeless, thinking my suddenly was happening now. But today God sent me Psalm 23:4 and 1 Peter 5:10, reminding me that even though I am in a dark valley He is here for strength, comfort and will restore our marriage. We must all keep praying and rejoicing even when the situation seems impossible. We must have faith that our spouses will come home and restore our marriages but most importantly that their hearts and lives will be turned to Christ. My spouse will come home soon. The devil is a liar!”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/20/2016)
“My husband and I have been separated for a few years and I have seen my husband’s heart completely soften. Though we are not reconciled yet, the Lord keeps breathing hope into my life. My husband went on a trip with the OW and word got back to me that they went to the zoo. I prayed to the Lord that if my husband still loves me and has feelings for me that he would send me a picture of my favorite animal while he was there. A few hours later I received a message from my husband of a picture of my favorite animal sleeping… just like my marriage; it’s not dead but sleeping. All praises to my Lord for He is good and will do what He said he will do!”  (Oklahoma) (posted 9/20/2016)

“My husband left many, many years ago. After our divorce he married the other woman. I am in a loving relationship with Jesus who keeps me busy in His church. He has been my husband through all of this. I hear that my husband is happy, but that is what the evil one wants me to believe. I sometimes wonder if God really wants me to keep standing, but He continues to place my husband on my mind each night before bed and every morning when I wake. I am blessed by Jesus who has shown me my gifts of helping others. I keep my focus on Jesus. He created me and has a plan for me so I will stand with Him for eternity. I will continue to pray for my husband, for his life means more to me. No matter how bad it gets, hold tight to Jesus! No greater love!”  (Maryland) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Still standing! Waiting, yet truly inspired by daily readings of reconciliation and faith. I miss my husband daily and so do our kids. It's been months now and the void still echoes. I first counted days, then weeks and now months. Feeling tired and weary yet a little voice says do not give up. ‘Be still and know that I am God’ lingers in my mind. Thank you for those who inspire and God bless marriage and God bless all those praying for marriage reconciliation and restoration and peace and rekindled love.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I had never heard of a Covenant Transport truck until I started standing and read the testimonies on the RMM site. Our marriage has been on life support for quite some time as my husband has fought God's calling him to ministry. I recently went with my husband to take my daughter to college. Before we left, I had prayed specifically that I see one of these trucks on the highway as a sign that God had heard me and was going to restore my marriage. I just knew if I saw one, then this was a sure sign from God. As we drove in the car, conversation drifted again to my husband's resistance to the calling on his life and our marriage restoration. At that moment I heard God say, ‘Look to the right.’ As I looked out the window, wouldn't you know, a Covenant Transport truck drove right by. I was so overwhelmed by awe that God had heard me!”  (Nevada) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Shortly after our separation the Lord brought me to this site and it has changed the way I see myself, my marriage and my Lord. Nothing but joy and strength has come to my life since finding this ministry. In just a few months I have heard songs that speak to just what I need to hear, read words that lift my spirit and once crossed paths with a Covenant Transport Truck when I was asking for a sign to stand for my marriage. I am extremely blessed to have continuous signs to keep me going but I am also learning that I don't need to depend on them; having faith in our Lord alone is enough. He is amazing and through Him all things are possible. My husband is still infatuated with the OW but I know with all my heart that this is only for a season. I pray for all of you every night, to not give up, to be a faithful stander no matter what circumstances you face, but above all to remember that God is who we need to have our eyes fixed on all the time.”  (Colorado) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been separated for a couple months and just found out the divorce complaint had been finalized. I am disappointed but not devastated. Even through this disappointing time God has given me a sense of peace. I want a restoration of my marriage at God’s will be done. I am amazed I am sound- minded and still taking care of my sons with his help and support. I stand in faith that God will have His will in my life; may it be blessed. I will continue to stay in prayer and read RMM devotions and testimonies. Praise God!”  (Hawaii) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL! I was so down yesterday (Labor Day) because I felt so alone, angry behind the hurt my prodigal has caused me, and on top of it all I haven't heard from my prodigal in several weeks. I cried out to the Lord and I let it all out, feeling so discouraged. I have been debating if I should submit this as a testimony, but I know that is the enemy trying to discourage me, so I am sharing. This morning I got up and I prayed and I asked the Lord to show me a sign that He will restore our broken relationship. Well, I went to a meeting a few hours later and everything that was given to us had the word ‘Restore’ on it, in big letters. Then as I am writing this testimony I look up to see a Swift truck. I know my suddenly is near because there is nothing impossible for our God. Keep praying standers despite what it looks like. Our God hears our cries!” (California) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Glory and praise to you Lord! It has been a few years since my husband came home. Our marriage is so much better. We pray together and attend weekly Bible study at our church. We are truly best friends to each other. Please never stop praying for your spouse. I almost did and I would have lost out on so much. Thank you Charlyne and RMM for guiding me along the way!”  (Florida) (posted 9/12/2016)
“My suddenly finally happened! Six weeks ago my husband showed up with his bags and never left. I give only God the praise and glory for the reconciliation of my marriage. It appeared certain that my marriage would end in divorce, but God! Standers, I encourage you to trust God. The battle is not yours. It belongs to God. He will fight for you. Get out of the way and let God be God. If He joined you and your spouse together, trust that He will reconcile your marriage and send your prodigal home. Don’t give up on your spouse or your marriage. The only victory the devil will have is the victory you give him. During your tough times pray for strength and let the Word of God be your solid foundation.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/12/2016)
“My miracle is beginning. God touched my wife’s heart in HIS perfect timing and she is willing to seek God’s will for our marriage. PTL. HE alone deserves the glory! I believe God crushed me with this trial to purify my walk with Him and show me the man He desires me to be. I know my sanctification is dependent on Christ. I know that I have relational skills to relearn and I expect Satan will continue to try to harm us. But God is mighty and I will trust the Lord with the final outcome. I am praying for ALL standers and prodigals. Be strong, your spouse is worth it.”  (Arizona) (posted 9/12/2016)

“I’ve been standing for some time now and it seems like an eternity. In my prayers lately I’ve been asking God how much longer, so I’ve been praying for patience. After reading Charlyne CaresWill You Labor for the Lord,’ I got my confirmation when Charlyne stated, ‘Your miracle is almost ready to be birthed, maybe even during this Labor Day weekend!’ I was excited. I called my husband on Labor Day and got his voicemail. I left a message thanking him for all of his hard work and let him know how much I appreciate him providing for me and the kids, and I prayed that God continues to bless his hands, another message I got from Charlyne CaresCelebrate Labor Day.’ Lo and behold he called me back and said that he was coming for dinner on Labor Day! This was the first meal we’ve shared in some time. We laughed, talked, hugged and I even gave him a kiss on the cheek. I know that my victory is days away. Hallelujah!”  (North Carolina) (posted 9/12/2016)
“Several nights ago, I had a vivid dream of seeing my husband and trying to grow closer to him by helping him with a project. When he saw me he turned around, annoyed, and asked me to leave him alone; he said I’m everywhere and he’s sick of me being everywhere. When I woke up I realized that it is impossible because I have not spoken to or seen him for over a year. In speaking to my mentor, I realized this dream was him ‘seeing’ and ‘hearing’ figuratively. I realize this is a sign showing me my prayers are reaching him and he can’t get me off his mind. To me, this is a true testimony to keep going with my prayers for him. Thank You God for showing this to me and RMM for all the support and knowledge on how to stand. God and love conquers all.”  (New Jersey) (posted 9/12/2016)
“Praise the Lord I have been standing for a very long time after my divorce. My prodigal husband reached out to me in a text just out of the blue. I happened to be starving because I over-drafted my account. He was teasing me because he didn’t believe me because I had for so long been the one with money helping him. I decided to drive over to his home which was ours when we were married. When he saw me he was surprised and questioned me. Then to my surprise he pulled some money from his wallet and handed it to me. Then we hung out and he gave me his extra keyboard for me to practice to sing solo to the Lord. We ended up kissing which led to becoming very close. It has been many years since we had any passion. Praise the Lord, He answered prayer in an amazing way. Amen.”  (Illinois) (posted 9/12/2016)
“I have been a strong stander, praying and fasting without ceasing. I have recently come to a point of such discouragement in my own life that I have been contemplating not praying anymore and just letting things unfold. Sometimes Gods voice is loud, other times it’s a gentle soft reminder. I am gently reminded to continue fasting and praying. I feel my heart has slowly grown hard and cold toward my husband and the wickedness surrounding the circumstances. I know even our discouraging seasons are only a season and soon I will be back up strongly contending. For the moment, I am encouraged to stay steady and consistent in prayer, and allow God to soften my heart and transform me. God is at work even in the mud and mire. Keep consistent standers; standing strong means resting in God’s truth and on His promises. Even when you’re weary, resting in the truth, in agreement with the Father, is strength. Stand firm. Do not be moved. Pray.”  (California) (posted 9/12/2016)
“I have been standing for my beloved husband for years now. I want to tell you how apt today’s devotional was. The enemy is so intent on destroying this family, attacking not just through circumstances, but my mind as well. I was so low due to happenings, but my heavenly Father used today’s devotional and words out of His Word to guide me to what to do as well as comfort. We walk against the tide in this world with our stand, and I am so blessed to have been led to this ministry by my Father who knew I would need it. Keep standing! Don’t give up! I encourage you with words from my favorite chapter. ‘And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.’ John 14:13-14 (NKJV).”  (Iowa) (posted 9/12/2016)
“My stand started out well, but I gave up due to listening to others and looking at circumstances. I filed for divorce. I stopped reading and praying for my spouse. Life went on. God still took care of me and my girls. At church Sunday, God spoke to me through the sermon. He wanted me praying for my spouse’s salvation. So I started praying again. Yesterday, at lunch I called my husband and we talked and laughed with each other. I decided a sub shop would be good for lunch. I asked my husband if he needed anything, and of all restaurants around, he asked for the sub shop! God gave me the opportunity to provide lunch for my husband. We talked and laughed more, like good friends. Less than a week doing it God’s way and things are already better. PTL!”  (Alabama) (posted 9/12/2016)
“My stand has been such a long road and it is not over. But God is so faithful and has been with me through every step! When my marriage began to fall apart, I knew God was going to save it. I had a peace in my heart that He would be with me and show me the way. I’ve been standing a few years now, the divorce is final and my beloved husband entered into a non-covenant marriage and now she is pregnant. I have wanted to give up so many times! But God! In the spring, right around Easter, my husband got baptized. He is on fire for the Lord and praying fervently for our marriage! He is broken and repentant, but not home yet. I grow in my faith looking back at God’s hand in every step, and I KNOW He will restore us.”  (Indiana) (posted 9/12/2016)
