“PTL, God is moving! After some time of separation my God brought my prodigal home. But I didn’t realize it would be so hard once he had come home because he had not 100% surrendered to the Lord yet. Although things have been going better with us, he refuses to join our children and me for church each Sunday. I save a seat next to me just in case he decides to return. It is what I pray for. On Mother’s Day as I got up and got our children ready, he stayed in the bed. My heart was heavy as I hated the idea of walking into church alone on Mother’s Day but I wasn’t going to not go. During worship a prominent song during my stand began to play, ‘Good, Good Father.’ I lifted my hands and closed my eyes to praise my good Father. When I opened my eyes my husband was standing in front of me with a dozen roses! What an awesome God we serve. Not only did He hear my prayers but delivered ten times more than I could have expected.”  (Georgia) (posted 5/23/2016)
“My marriage has been restored! I have been standing for my marriage for several years with no communication for many months. But God, nothing is impossible for Him. To God be the glory. My husband contacted me via email, ashamed, doubtful and confused, asking if I will allow him to speak with the children. My husband is back home and we are attending church together as a family! God is amazing and will do more than we could ever imagine! When we see nothing on the other side of the mountain, trust God is working! My husband tells me how God always put someone in his path to give a word of encouragement. We, as standers, believe that our prodigal’s are living a joyful life. That’s a lie of the enemy! My marriage problems happened for a reason. I needed to surrender my life to the Lord. I was led by the Holy Spirit to pray for my husband’s salvation and I have no regrets. Continue to pray and stand firm! God keeps His promises! Amen.”  (New Jersey) (posted 5/23/2016)

“My husband sent me a text for Mother’s Day while he was on a trip with the OW. He used the nickname he gave me when we were first married. He has not done that in years. I thank God that He can touch hearts anywhere at any time. This truly encouraged me. God will do what He has promised. Stand firm.”  (Canada) (posted 5/23/2016)
Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth— everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Isaiah 43:5-7. I had been praying this scripture with my husband’s name in it for months before my oldest daughter’s wedding and I would feel such peace although no circumstances led me to believe we would be together as a family. My husband did come (not the OW) for the week as it was a destination wedding. We flew together, ate meals together and stayed in the same hotel, my husband even carried my luggage! My God answered every prayer – even sitting together at the wedding. God answers prayers! Keep praying scripture, God is listening!”  (New York) (posted 5/23/2016)
“Glory be to God for His daily mercy and great grace! I thank God for this ministry for it has helped to transform my heart and the hearts of all I share my stand with. Throughout the years I have witnessed my husband’s heart soften towards God, me, and my willingness to never give up on our covenant marriage. Although there have many false starts and a non-covenant marriage, I have total peace, faith and trust in God. Only He will restore our marriage for His awesome glory! Thank you for your words of wisdom and hope for all marriages. I will continue to pray often, stand firmly and know mine and other’s suddenlies will come soon. Luke 1:45 – Blessed is she who believes that God will fulfill all of His promises to her. God bless us all!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/23/2016)
After several years of separation and a granted divorce, my beloved has contacted me suddenly and invited me to spend Memorial Day weekend with him in his new city! We talked for hours on the phone, with him saying he missed and loved my voice! But most importantly, I got to hear how God is moving in his life. He is miserable in his new life and he felt that the only person he could talk to about his real feelings was me, because of my relationship with Jesus. He told me he reads my devotionals on Facebook and they make him take inventory of his life and he does not like what he’s become. Lord Jesus, thank You for Your faithfulness. You are showing me you ARE working on the other side of the mountain and breathing life into my marriage. Lord I pray for all my fellow standers. May they trust in You and Your timing. May they lay their spouses on the throne and let YOU lead our prodigals home and may their heart be turned to You! Proverbs 3:5-6.”  (California) (posted 5/23/2016)
“PTL! I have been standing for some time now. The closer I have become to the Lord, the more pressure the enemy has been pouring on through my spouse. My wife filed a protective order against me for something that didn’t happen. The protective order was dismissed. Standers, no matter how bad the storm gets, know that God will not let any harm come against those who are faithful and obedient to Him. I thank God every day for allowing me to go through the storms because He always brings me through them better than ever. I no longer focus on my circumstances but on God alone. He will always win the battle against the enemy. Thank You Jesus, my Lord and Savior.”  (Oklahoma) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I give honor and praise to my Father in Heaven! Thanking Him for His many blessings. I submitted a prayer request asking for prayer for my prodigal to contact me for Mother’s Day. I usually have no contact with my prodigal. It’s extremely hard because we have children and they get very disappointed during this time with their father. Prayers of the righteous work. My prodigal not only called and talked to me and the kids for several hours, he gave my daughters a card and some money to take me to a very nice restaurant. He also called to wish me Happy Mother’s Day. Thank You Jesus! Standers, keep pressing in, your breakthrough is right around the corner.”  (Georgia) (posted 5/23/2016)
“This is a testimony on answered prayer and professing God’s Word over marriages. I had the privilege of praying for a couple I never met but learned of their struggles from a family member. This couple had a newborn and the husband filed for divorce and was preparing for trial. The family member asked me for a lawyer to which I replied there shall be no divorce. I took this couple to the Lord in prayer and never gave her my lawyer’s number. A few months after the first court date the husband came home wanting to work on his marriage and family; truly a miracle because he was sure about the divorce. All praises to the Almighty. He is a prayer-answering God and He alone sees our hearts. Things are very quiet in my situation but I know if God has done it for them, in His timing He will do it for me. Waiting in the Lord as I wait on the Lord.”  (Trinidad & Tobago) (posted 5/23/2016)
“My husband has been back home for several months now and God has been blessing us. I do admit that I have been slacking on my prayer time and personal time with God. I felt myself slowly turning into my old self. Well, God has allowed something to happen to get my attention and turn me back onto the right path. For the past week my husband shared with me that he feels bad about leaving the OW because they have a daughter together. He feels that he should have given her another chance instead of coming back to me. He was having a really hard time. But instead of fussing at him, I went straight to the Lord. I fasted for three days. God revealed to me my wrongs and I repented with godly sorrow. I prayed for my husband nonstop. As always, God delivered! My husband said that he would let God’s will be done and follow what He tells him! Amen! I’m so happy and relieved that God has given me another chance! Praise Him!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/23/2016)
“God’s mercy and love is overwhelming. I went to get my car fixed, and they said it would be a certain amount but it turned out to be more. On the same day, I got a text from my husband that said he wanted to put some extra money in my account along with his weekly child support. He has never done this before. He knew nothing about the car needing fixed. The day before, God said His purposes would prevail. This may seem small to some but my husband went from demanding I pay child support to offering extra to me. And I had the chance to thank my husband, and tell him how nice it was for him to do it. I was falling down on my fasting and feeling disobedient to God, but He still did this! Keep trusting, keep believing.”  (Virginia) (posted 5/23/2016)
“Our God is so faithful. I was encouraged yesterday by Charlyne’s devotional titled ‘The Lords Purpose Will Prevail.’ The teaching was incisive; it hit the right spot on my emotional canvas. I was in the shadow of another hard hitting rejection by my prodigal, but the Lord sent me help through the teaching. Truly the Lord Jesus gets sweeter with each passing day. As it is testified in 2 Chronicles 6:41, and may God arise and go to His resting place so that His saints can continue to rejoice in His goodness. Fellow stander, as long as you’re doing what the Bible teaches, it will be okay. There is pain in the offering, but it will be okay. Yes, dear child of God it will be okay: take heart and just obey.”  (Canada) (posted 5/23/2016)
“After many months of an affair and then moving out of the house and into a place with the OW, my husband all of a sudden changed and wanted to work things out with me. I had found this ministry online and had been standing and praying faithfully. He said he wanted to get back together at some point but he had signed a lease with the OW for a year, and had to move in with her because he couldn’t get out of the lease. I admit I was heartbroken but I told him that he had to do what he had to do and I would trust the Lord. The Lord provided a way for him and put it on his heart to move home. God is faithful. He has always reminded me that He just wanted me to be still and He would take care of everything. Psalm 37:4 reminded me to just keep on doing what I was doing, becoming a better person to be a better wife.”  (Connecticut) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I am thanking God today because He heard my prayer after months of prayer and crying. He is a faithful God and He did not let me give up. My husband asked me to forgive him after many months of silence, bitterness and anger. He said he misses his family and will be visiting us this weekend. He said things have been tough and he has lost everything. I have no information of how or who he has been living with but I know God will touch him to confess on his own. To all standers, God is the same yesterday today and forever. Just believe and have confidence He will do it. I am still praying for his salvation and full restoration of our marriage with Christ Jesus as the foundation. I thank God that above all I have a wonderful relationship with Him. I praise His Holy Name.”  (Kenya) (posted 5/23/2016)
Well, I’m blown away! I went to hear an author speak at a ladies lunch. The message was about the resurrection of Lazarus and Ezekiel 37! I found the next day difficult. My husband was home but not for long – he’d been doing some work on the outbuilding (Restoration!). It’s disappointing to only see him briefly but I went to praise God at a meeting, and asked God to confirm His Word. He did. The minister started calling out, ‘Bring life to these dry bones, heal this marriage,’ and ‘Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!’ (Exodus 14:13). He doesn’t know about my marriage situation. This morning as I prayed, I remembered another word a friend had given me. Charlyne confirmed it in today’s devotional – Habakkuk 1:5. Thank you Lord and Charlyne.”  (England) (posted 5/23/2016)

“PTL for the restoration of my marriage. We have been separated for a few years. We started talking about reconciliation. It was something we both didn’t plan. I started searching on the net for people who God restored their marriages and I found Rejoice Marriage Ministries. At times when I get discouraged I go to the messages that I have downloaded and play them over and over. The Word of God works.”  (South Africa) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I submit this to give you hope that your dead marriage can be resurrected through Jesus. After months of following the world’s way on how to deal with an affair, my heart was pulling me to seek Christian guidance. I am so thankful I ran across this ministry. The daily emails shaped my prayers and kept my focus on God. I learned to zip my lips and trust that God was going to be my advocate. Instead of playing personal investigator, I trusted God to reveal to me what I needed to know in His timing. After a period of discourse and separation, I can happily report my husband is back home and has broken off his relationship with the other woman. He was not perfect when he came back but God is working and our relationship is blossoming into something nurturing and loving. My heart is full again. God will work on your dead marriage if you allow Him to work on your heart first. Pray incessantly. Be still. Jesus can change your spouse’s hardened heart back into one of flesh like He did mine.”  (New York) (posted 5/23/2016)

“The Lord God is a sun and shield to those who put their trust in Him. My husband separated from me last summer but I am still trusting God to bring us back together despite some of our relatives being against it. I held firm to them that God brought us together and I would always receive back my husband, it matters not what he had done to me. God has kept me faithful to him since then, despite others telling me to forget him and move on. I still wear my ring proudly and still behave as if we are living together. The Lord is changing me in the process and I am sure He’s working on my spouse as well. Reading other people’s stories has given me hope.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I’ve been debating whether to send this testimony and then thought why not – God deserves to be praised for others to read. I’ve consistently asked God to change me, as well as praying many scriptures. But the one I want to speak of is Ezekiel 36:26. God showed me a softening of my husband’s heart recently. I happened to be home one evening to catch a phone call that he needed to know about. Although he seemed hesitant to talk with me with the OW around, once he found out what the call was about his tune changed. He called me unexpectedly the next morning to thank me for letting him know about the call. I got an unexpected text from him first thing the next morning after Mother’s Day telling me he meant to wish me a happy day and apologized for not doing so. Believe me when I say ‘this is huge.’ I don’t know what God has planned, but I trust Him.”  (South Carolina) (posted 5/23/2016)
“God is always at work. As a stander for some time now, God has truly made me over. I started off complaining and have ended up thankful. It is so important as a stander to arm yourself with the Word of God because the closer you get to your promise the more the enemy tries to feed you lies or distract you so you will give up or put your attention on your spouse instead of God. God has changed my husband’s heart but the enemy is fighting hard to keep him in a confused and doubtful state. Although he is still pursuing a divorce, he tells me that he is lonely and still comes over to be around me. Although he says he can’t reconcile with me, God orders his steps. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 16:9 that humans establish their plan but God orders our steps. So no matter what it looks like or the plan that your spouse has, God is still on the throne and still will direct their steps in the way He wants them to go! Never give up, never give in, and remember His Word never returns void.”  (Oklahoma) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I’ve waited to share this testimony hoping I’d be fully restored, but I cannot wait any longer to give our God and Lord Jesus all the glory for what is happening in my marriage. I’ve been separated for many years now. I’ve learned so much and I’m happy to say this is what I needed to get close to the Lord. I used to put my husband before my God and I know now this is wrong. I have learned to rely on Jesus for everything. Over the last year I’ve been spending increasingly more time with my husband and now I see him every week for days at a time. I thank the Lord for such progress. He has softened my husband’s hard heart toward me and we have such a wonderful time together. He’s still not saved and this is my prayer, that he be washed in the blood of Jesus. I wait patiently for full restoration as he says he’s not ready to come home yet but I know he will in Jesus’ name.”  (Great Britain) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I speak about God and my stand with some people at work. One of my co-workers is a non-believer who is in the process of a divorce. He just told me that I should not give up because I am changing him into being a believer. Pray my friends, we must bring another lost sheep home with God’s help. Thank you!”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 5/23/2016)
“Praise be to God! My hubby has been separated from me for several years and under the spell of the enemy. But things have changed recently after he was diagnosed with cancer and Jehovah gave me the chance to prove my love and loyalty to the man I love. After years of praying and fasting for him, he has been transformed and now he loves reading his Bible! Only God! Things between us are a lot better, even though we are not together. I know that Jehovah is working on his heart. He tells me he loves me every day. He is holding back from me as he now has to have a stem cell transplant and he feels he might die and might not be able to be with me again, but I have faith! Please pray for us. ‘This too shall pass!’ is my motto. Never, never give up standers. We serve a faithful God who made my impossible situation possible. If He can perform such great miracles for me, He can for you!”  (South Africa) (posted 5/23/2016)
“I am still standing after a divorce, marriage to the OW and a baby. God said He would restore my marriage in the same year we divorced and after years of off and on standing, I am seeing God move on my behalf. My husband has divorced the other woman and now is saying he wants to get his life back on track and make sure the boys are taken care of. God is not a man that he should lie! My husband is coming home to us soon… I believe!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/23/2016)
“Over the past time of standing for my husband, I have received numerous signs and messages from God to stand firm and trust in Him; that He is working in my marriage. I shared some of these messages with my husband, but he told me that it was just me…God wasn’t speaking to him. Yesterday he told me that he had gotten the text message I sent him a few days ago with a positive affirmation that I had received via email, ‘I will forgive my spouse every day.’ I told him that I had sent that text a year ago! God saw to it that it be delivered again. I told my husband that there it is…HIS message from God, directly to him. PTL! God is working in my marriage, speaking to my husband in His own time and in His own way.”  (Virginia) (posted 5/23/2016)
“PTL! My prodigal husband came for a visit! After not talking for many months and a text days ago saying he was in a relationship with someone he loves and he wants no more contact. He texted tonight and asked to come over! He said he didn’t know why he was here and he’s confused. I got to hear from him what God has been doing on the other side of the mountain. Standers, stand firm. God is faithful and the prayers of the righteous are powerful. I want to scream it from the rooftops! God is on the move! So thankful for the wisdom, guidance and discipleship this ministry has offered me as I’ve been standing. God is good!”  (California) (posted 5/23/2016)
“Today I cried out to God as the devil is attacking me left, right and center. I have an in-house prodigal who is threatening to leave but God is faithful. He has been telling me that my husband is not going anywhere unless I keep insisting he will go so I thought, ‘There is power in the tongue.’ My washing machine stopped working. I quickly remembered there is power in the tongue so I said, ‘God this washing machine is working,’ and to God’s glory it started working. My God is faithful. My husband hasn’t been communicating with me but when I told him about the washing machine, he quickly replied to my message, telling me what to do. I am in awe of God. I submitted to my husband. My message is please submit to your husband regardless of their silence. God will bless you. Praying for every stander to keep on receiving wisdom from God. God bless you all.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 5/23/2016)
“Where to begin. God has blessed beyond anything I would have expected. And one of the people helping me is my ex. He has remarried but every month he gives me money. Only God. He’s been gone many years, divorced and remarried but he has never stopped seeing me. It started slow, once a month, but now I see him once a week, sometimes twice. This year I received a Mother’s Day card. Our relationship is so much better than when we were married. God changed me and now I can see Him changing my ex. God is so great. You have to believe, have faith, stand strong and wait for that suddenly. It doesn’t matter what he did or has done, all I know is that my God will one day restore my family. Thank You Jesus for never giving up on me and on him. No matter how long it takes, just like a parent knows what’s best for their child, so does my Father in Heaven.”  (Texas) (posted 5/23/2016)
“PTL! For many, many years I have been in the wilderness until I found RMM. During my separation I felt God was calling me to stand. After many years of standing, my covenant got remarried to someone else. A year later I remarried also. Now many years later, I’m divorced again. I started praying about restoration to my non-covenant. I noticed each time I prayed God would show me a dream about my covenant husband. It was then I realized I had to let go of all ties to my non-covenant. It was hard for me to embrace the fact that I, too, was a prodigal. Since this time, I began to fast and pray, believing God will show me His will. My third day of fasting, my covenant husband, after being divorced for many years with absolutely no communication, called me and asked for forgiveness. A month later God reconnected us through prayer and we are now prayer partners. We are not under the same roof yet but I know it’s coming. I will continue to fast and pray and watch God do a miracle. Never give up!”  (Virginia) (posted 5/23/2016)
Have you listened to our Conference call from Monday evening? I talked about being a stander becoming a detective or snooping into their spouse’s phone or on their computer. Let the Holy Spirit reveal everything to you in His perfect divine way. After my teaching, we were blessed to hear Pam and Jeff share their testimony of marriage restoration. Your faith, hope and trust will increase.  Then we had guests who prayed for you, your spouse, children, breaking all addictions and a revival. If you are discouraged or want someone to pray for you, listen to our monthly Conference Calls and this year we have had people praying for your entire family and then listen to the previous years! Please email us and let us know if you are being blessed. – Charlyne (posted 5/23/2016)

“Praises, honor and glory to God! He continues to come through. I submitted the conciliation court date on RMM a few days ago. I fasted, prayed and asked God for confirmation that He will turn my husband’s heart to dismiss the divorce. All week I haven’t receive anything. BUT GOD! Today on the way to the Women’s Fellowship, God gave me three Swift trucks! At the altar, the Holy Spirit told me to be patient. A sister prayed over me and felt the Holy Spirit in me so strongly that I cried, pouring my heart out to God. On the way home, God gave me five Swift trucks! That’s a total of eight Swift trucks, PTL! Our God is definitely working swiftly behind the mountain and letting me know that He is in control, my husband and the divorce is in His hand and all I need to do is BE STILL proclaiming victory. Matthew 21:22. Sisters and brothers, fast, pray and stand in faith for healing and restoration of your marriages. God is faithful.”  (Arizona) (posted 5/20/2016)
“I have been standing through all stages. Married, separated and now divorced. My prodigal, whom I love dearly, has chosen to no longer communicate with me by any communication, even text. I was praying and crying out to the Lord, ‘Are you sure there is still a door open to stand since he has closed every door of communication?’ Then to my surprise I saw a Covenant Transport truck on Mother’s Day and the next. I have been keeping track of these trucks during my stand. I am now at number 152. Then after this 152nd Covenant Transport truck, I saw a repair shop with the word ‘Restoration.’ I laughed. If cars can be restored, certainly my marriage could be restored. I praise the Lord for showing me this, reminding me God sees everything.”  (Illinois) (posted 5/20/2016)
“The Lord our God is Author of Restoration! Last year while listening to a teaching by Charlyne, she spoke about her burdened heart for standers. I asked the Lord then, please give me that same burden for marriages. Three hours later I received a text from a friend that her husband left a few weeks prior. I praised the Lord for answering my prayer so quickly! I am able to support, encourage and pray for her family which is an honor. The Lord answered our prayers for her family this Mother’s Day! She called and said her husband was coming home! I was in a large store and right then and there I screamed at the top of my lungs, ‘Praise the Lord! The Lord restores marriages!’ Our God is such a good God. It is all in His timing. I am still standing but it is a blessing to witness the miracle and joy of restoration so suddenly. May the Holy Spirit continue to lead us during our stand and bring our spouses home.”  (Georgia) (posted 5/18/2016)
“I had not heard from my husband in months. I had been praying and doubting and was full of fear. But God is faithful. My husband texted me inquiring how I was doing. He had been looking at photos of us and God allowed that to touch his heart. There is no foolishness in our marriage, we just lost our connection to each other and God. I’m not sure if this is another false start but I’m praising God for the journey. I am learning how to be a better wife. God has been showing me my wrongs in my marriage and I welcome His correction. I had to learn to be still and let God work. I am taking a War Room class at my church. If you want God to restore your marriage conduct yourself such as a woman of God. To God be the glory.”  (Texas) (posted 5/18/2016)
“Our Lord is amazing and so faithful. My Lord gave me a promise a few months into my stand. Many more months went by where I saw absolutely no change in my husband but I remembered the promise God gave me. Jeremiah 30. I held on against my own thoughts and no one else understanding my stand. Suddenly, and I want to emphasize that, suddenly, my husband wants to rebuild our marriage. Falling in love all over again with God as our number one priority is something only God can do. If you are praying for your marriage or any other situation, please do not give up. God is faithful and will answer all of our prayers. I love You Lord, You are still my number one love.”  (North Carolina) (posted 5/18/2016)

The Lord restores marriages!’ Our God is such a good God. It is all in His timing. I am still standing but it is a blessing to witness the miracle and joy of restoration so suddenly. May the Holy Spirit continue to lead us during our stand and bring our spouses home.”  (Georgia) (posted 5/18/2016)
“My husband has moved out, is drafting divorce papers and is with the OW. I was in a very peaceful state as I was fully trusting in the Lord’s promises. My husband stopped by our home while I was gone for a couple things he had left. The idea of him just being there made me incredibly sad. I was feeling defeated. I sobbed that night, praying for restoration and to help me trust in the Lord better. The next morning I was reading a devotional book and the Lord gave me Jeremiah 31:15-21. The morning after that I went to a group fitness class where at most about two to three new people come each year. Well that morning the jeweler who custom made my ring was there! My jaw dropped. I have never seen him outside of his store. Glory to our Lord who reminded me of my covenant and His promises of restoration! I am so thankful for the Lord and this ministry. I hope we all keep praying for each other!”  (Washington) (posted 5/18/2016)
“I had a blessed Mother’s Day and in a way I never could have imagined! I’ve been standing for many years. My husband has children with the OW that I have already started praying for will come to know Jesus. I went to my husband’s place to drop off something for my son when all of a sudden my husband’s older child came out of the house. Immediately my husband told her to go back inside. She then voiced, ‘No, I want to give her a hug.’ She then walked over to me and I bent down and gave her a great big hug and told her how sweet she was. It made my Mother’s Day and continued to show me God’s goodness and grace through it all – all for His glory! Keep standing! Every day God performs a miracle, just keep your eyes open for it!”  (Arizona) (posted 5/18/2016)
“My husband and I have been divorced for several years, have had a number of false starts, and a few years ago, he left for the OW again. We had little communication after that other than specifically regarding our two young children. Last year we went through mediation regarding our kids where the mediator spent most of our time telling me how ‘over’ the relationship was and how I should just move on. But I told him that I believed God was able to change our situation. Fast forward to this past Christmas and my husband actually joined us for Christmas dinner! On New Year’s Eve, he came again. We spent both of our children’s birthdays together, Easter together and this past weekend, he took me on a date! God is SO good, and I know He’s working out our circumstances for HIS glory!”  (Canada) (posted 5/18/2016)
“My spouse and I have not communicated for some time. I prayed and asked God for some communication or a sign of some sort. PTL, he called on Mother’s Day to say Happy Mother’s Day. I held my tongue and said I really appreciate it. He then said you are a good mother. I know God is working on the other side of the mountain. That is the first cordial conversation we had in months and came as a surprise because our anniversary was two weeks ago.”  (North Carolina) (posted 5/18/2016)
“I just got word from my lawyer, that our upcoming court hearing has been continued! I want to thank everyone who prayed in agreement with me for God to not let it happen. Only God could do it! God is so awesome! I give Him all the praise, honor, and glory.”  (Arkansas) (posted 5/18/2016)
“I just want to give God praise. I am thankful for this ministry. I have learned forgiveness. I held so much anger and hatred towards the first OW. I couldn’t even see a picture of her without my blood boiling with anger. God convicted my heart and I began to pray for her. She too was an addict like my beloved is and I had to realize she’s not the enemy. I began to pray for her and the more I prayed, the more my heart softened. I just recently found out through a mutual friend on Facebook that she is now sober! Praise God! Seeing that healthy picture of her filled my heart with joy and gratitude to God for changing my heart and hearing my prayers. If He can break her addiction, He can do the same for my spouse. I will continue to pray and if God opens the door for me to be the one to lead her to Him, then I need to be ready. This is definitely not an easy journey and I miss my spouse a lot, but I realize God has a greater purpose for this trial and I choose to trust in Him and be open to being used as a vessel for His glory. Praise You Father!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/18/2016)
“PTL! After standing for many months my beloved has returned home. I submitted two court dates and both times God showed up and did not allow anything to prosper. Earlier this month my husband contacted his attorney and dismissed the divorce. When I came home from work, my husband told me to look in the garage. He had cleaned out his storage unit and moved everything back home. The next day he had his wedding ring on. Fasting, prayer and allowing God to change me! It wasn’t about my husband is what I learned, it was all about God working in me. I feel free! God is forever faithful. He gave me Isaiah 43:13.I learned to keep my lips shut. Hold on everyone, God is working on the other side of the mountain. Don’t look to your left or your right. Keep your focus on the author and finisher of our faith!”  (Texas) (posted 5/18/2016)
“Praise The Lord! I am so grateful for the blessings that God did for me on Mother’s Day. I was given a miracle to spend this special day with my mother-in-law and most importantly my husband. I was so filled with joy and happiness to see them. My husband gave me a beautiful card with ‘Wife’ written on the front. Since we have been separated there have been no cards, especially one with “Wife” on it. Just two weeks ago my husband said that he didn’t want to be married and that he did not desire me as his wife. I know that my God is moving in his heart. I want to say thank you to ALL of you for the testimonies and for the encouragement to keep moving forward with God. I know with the Lord on my side I am going to be good. Thank You Jesus. I am so delighted in just being able to give a testimony that is going to become a breakthrough very soon. Be of good courage!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/18/2016)
“My God has given me compassion to pray for my wife to come home to Him, not me. So many things were wrong in our marriage. Both of us not doing it God’s way. I had issues I was overlooking. So simple, but the flesh doesn’t die easily. I love Exodus 14:14. God allowed this for me to be up against the Red Sea wall. God will make a way. He works in ways we cannot see and has unimaginable ways to bring things about. He’s so creative and when He acts, we cannot deny it because we know the hopelessness of our situation. This may sound bold, but I’m not going to let Satan get away with trying to destroy me and my family. It won’t be that easy, I’m not rolling over and I’m not going away. You’re not alone. Keep standing friends!”  (Arkansas) (posted 5/18/2016)
“My husband is still home. He is scheduled to leave before the end of May. On Mother’s Day he gave me a card that said ‘He feels anything is possible if he is by my side.’ I am so thanking God for this sign of hope. I have been standing on this verse that this divorce or separation shall not come to pass. Isaiah: 7:7 (KJV) – Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.”  (Illinois) (posted 5/18/2016)
