“Jesus did it again! My marriage is restored. I have forgiven my husband and he has ended things with the OW. God opened his eyes to see that he was being deceived. We still have a long way to go. We still have matters to handle like a non-covenant child. This website has been a great blessing to me. My husband is not born again yet, but I believe the God who restored my marriage will do it in His perfect timing. My situation looked impossible. I didn’t know if I could forgive my husband. I prayed and I fasted till I surrendered all to Him and He did what only He could do.”  (Belgium) (posted 5/23/2017)
“I’ve imagined writing this praise report for a few years, and here it is: My husband and I remarried yesterday on our original anniversary date. It looked impossible and was a horrible mess…but with God all things are possible. I am so thankful to Him and to Rejoice Marriage Ministries. As a second praise report, I have a colleague who had given up on her marriage due to her husband’s infidelities. I didn’t even realize she had stopped wearing her ring, but she told me that I in part inspired her to put the ring back on. Standers, people are watching you. I know it may be difficult finding pure joy in others benefiting from your stand while you continue to struggle, but God hasn’t abandoned you. While I wouldn’t have chosen this experience for myself, it’s proven to be an invaluable spiritual exercise in faith and love which will undoubtedly serve my life going forward. Please continue to pray for us and for a complete healing of my husband’s depression. Thank you!”  (Kentucky) (posted 5/23/2017)

“I want to give glory to God. My beloved prodigal called and wanted to come over, cook me dinner, and give me a Mother’s Day present. I told him that he was always welcome. He spent four wonderful hours with me. ‘God is moving mountains and parting waters that I can’t even see.’ (Hilary Scott, ‘Still’). God gave me that song last Sunday as an encouragement. I have been praying over Exodus 14:13-14 (NASB) –  But Moses said to the people, ‘Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.’ Thank You, Lord for helping me to ‘zip my lips’ and let him talk. He misses God, worshiping Him, and serving Him. I have been praying that he would hunger and thirst for the Lord and His righteousness; that he will seek the Lord with all his heart; that he would turn to God from his idols. God is working and He is faithful!”  (Maine) (posted 5/23/2017)
“Thank You, Jesus and RMM for the Saturday Testimonies and for Standing Firm. At times bitterness and unforgiveness take hold. I hate this, but it is true. But the testimonies and devotion this morning brought me to tears. Oh Jesus, save my precious bride. When I see through His eyes I see what’s at stake, eternity, and the bitterness and unforgiveness melt away. 1 Peter 4:8 (NLT) Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. But God! Isn’t that what Jesus did for us? With His love, He covered a multitude of sins.”  (California) (posted 5/23/2017)
“Finding RMM has been a blessing to me. I’m standing for my prodigal husband as well as with other standers. I got sick with a very large tumor. God had been preparing me all along for this fight and God healed me by faith. The enemy is a liar. The enemy had whispered lies to my prodigal husband, gave him earthly pleasures, and he left for work one day and never returned. No contact with me at all, but our mighty God is with us. I pray without ceasing and know God’s promises. God showed me so many things and He has sustained me. He has shown me that I was fighting with my prodigal when I should have been on my knees fighting for our marriage. I’ve learned to trust God because He has the perfect plan for our marriage restoration and future, but in His time. Please don’t give up and listen to others. Trust in God because His Word is truth. Through faith I was healed and I will continue to stand as long as it takes. I keep reading Hebrews Chapter 11. My prayers are with you all.”  (North Carolina) (posted 5/23/2017)
Psalm 119:105 assures us God’s Word will light your path, and as you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, joy will come in the morning. The way may seem dark at times. However, God will never leave you nor will He forsake you. Your heavenly Father loves you with an everlasting love. May that love fill both yours and your spouse’s heart today.”  (California) (posted 5/23/2017)
“Praise be to God! How great your love is my Majesty! A few weeks ago, God answered my prayer. My spouse came to my work place, and we talked to the each other for awhile. I saw her put our wedding ring back on her finger. And even more, God is softening her heart of stone too! God is moving the mountain on the other side. All the glory to God! Hallelujah! God has made everything beautiful in its time (Ecclesiastes 3:11). When God is silent or it doesn’t seem like your prayers are being answered, don’t give up standers. Let’s continually pray for our prodigals. God never leaves us nor forsakes us. God is always with us. Amen.”  (Malaysia) (posted 5/23/2017)
“As a teacher, I was faced with meeting with an irate parent this week. Naturally, I assumed the worst would happen! In my anxiety, I cried out to God for help. That’s when He gave me eyes to see this distraught mother as He saw her, a wounded and hurting woman who had just recently gone through a divorce. My heart broke, and I repented of my anger. That’s when God showed me to PRAY for this dear mother and her child who was also suffering the effects of the divorce of her parents. I was then led to give her a Mother’s Day card. The next day, I called this mother to confirm our meeting. To my surprise, her tone was cordial and in less than five minutes, her concerns were resolved and our conversation ended peacefully! I will continue to pray for this mother and hope that God will reconcile her to her husband. ‘The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.’ 1 Samuel 16:7.”  (Texas) (posted 5/23/2017)
“I have a marriage that to this world seems dead. But God is moving in mighty ways. Through this process, He is growing me into Authentic Manhood that He has called me to live. And suddenly, God has removed a circumstance in the life of my wife, a complete answer to prayer. My marriage is not restored yet, but God is moving mountains and I know that our suddenly of a restored marriage is coming soon. Stand firm.”  (Virginia) (posted 5/23/2017)
“My wife filed for divorce months ago. I realized she filed incorrect paperwork. I filed a motion to dismiss it, and we had a court hearing this morning. The judge dismissed it, but told her she could file the correct paperwork next month, and possibly be divorced within a few days. I asked her afterword what her plan is, and she is ‘unsure.’ She said she has a lot to think through. Praise God for dismissing that divorce, and I pray He continues to move her heart back to Him, to me, and our children.”  (Louisiana) (posted 5/23/2017)
“So thankful for RMM and the prayers. This week I received our second postponement for the court date. I was called out-of-state due to my mom’s failing health. My spouse told me to call my lawyer and postpone (and he’s the one who filed). I have been standing, praying and fasting for some time. I received a word from the Lord from my mom’s doctor. She said that God is orchestrating His plan and isn’t He marvelous (she is a Christian and family friend). I was given Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Take one day at a time and continue to pray, praise and trust God.”  (Oregon) (posted 5/23/2017)
“I have been praying for a new car as mine is…let’s just say it’s a sign and a wonder…in that I bless it every time I get in and thank the Lord for it, then I thank the Lord for the new car I know He is preparing for me. I have said repeatedly that I trust when the time is right, He will provide. Well that day has come. I have just been given a car! God is answering ALL my prayers. How can I doubt His heart toward me, my marriage and His promises and purposes for my family? I can’t! He didn’t invite me to pray for a new car, He didn’t promise me a new car, but I knew to ask Him because He is my Father. He answered. But my marriage? Oh, He bent over backwards and forwards, danced in the street, waved His arms, split the sky, put angels, trucks, signs, numbers, prophetic words in my path constantly shouting, ’STAND AND SEE THE SALVATION OF YOUR GOD!’ Oh, He will restore. Soon my eyes will behold it! It is finished. He is just setting the stage! He is making His move!”  (Texas) (posted 5/23/2017)

“We all have days where we need that extra push or encouragement to stand. I'm so glad to have this ministry which gives us exactly what we are looking for. My prodigal and I have had some great days during these past months. There is still a long road ahead because he finds it hard to come to me and my son after a long time being separated. Last week we had an argument on the phone and as soon as we hung up, a United truck passed by. I thought, ‘You got to be kidding me,’ and a few feet after, same lane, a Covenant Transport truck. Fast forward to this week. We went to the movies with our son and at a red light where we stood, a United truck on the left and a Covenant truck on the right. I couldn’t believe it. I even shouted, ‘PTL’ and he looked at me. Always remember, things are in God's timing. A different day when I was going to spend the time with him, I saw on the highway a truck that read ‘Stand Strong.’ I feel like God is talking to me and everything will be great soon.”  (Florida) (posted 5/16/2017)
“For the sake of giving God ALL the glory and encouraging others, please allow me to share that after YEARS of frustration, heartache, separation, divorce and all that comes with that, my Holy Father has proven Himself faithful! After buckets of tears, many prayers and a final surrender to God’s sovereignty, my husband (I’ve never referred to him as ex) wants to begin working on us! O how I praise Him! While my heart and soul rejoice for being in the midst of the restoration phase, I realize my stand is just beginning. ‘Father help us, strengthen us and lead us! Amen.’ Asking for prayers.”  (Ohio) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Praise and thank You Lord for my husband, for our marriage, our divorce, our remarriage and our ongoing restoration and salvation. Even in some of our darkest valleys I, through the grace of God, told my beloved brave soldiering prodigal spouse that I would go through the fire all again. He would look at me like I had lost my mind, but I saw admiration in his eyes. How can you love me after all I have done? I never stopped. Love never ends. I thank God so much for holding onto our hearts. Today is our anniversary and God gave me a beautiful rainbow. I will hope in the Lord always. Thy will be done. I pray God will continue to purify and mold and give life to us as we journey every day closer to His open heart as He heals ours. Amen.”  (New Hampshire) (posted 5/15/2017)

“My stand hasn’t been easy. There has been a custody battle, an OW, a non-covenant child, and lots of heartache, yet the Lord has been clear that I should wait, pray, and fast for my love’s repentance, restoration, and our reconciliation. This Easter I prayed for 40 days partnered with fasting for my prodigal. I asked for his work schedule to change so that he could go to church. Before Easter he called our little girl, so happy that he’d now have weekends off! I rejoiced and prayed more specifically. I asked God to get him to church even if that meant going with the OW. My little girls and I continued to pray and praise God! Our little girl called me and was so excited that her daddy went to church with the family! It was bittersweet knowing that my prayer had been answered. God had given me Haggai 2:9 this season and I know that God is preparing my husband for me one step at a time. Though the non-covenant wedding is being planned. PTL because I know that God has a different plan!”  (California) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Never give up fellow standers. We all need to learn to continue to walk in faith and trust our beautiful, Almighty God. Isaiah 2:22. Trust what God says to your hearts not what our spouses say or do. I am a man of God, still waiting and loving my spouse. It’s not easy and there have been a lot of tears, hurts, and missteps, but God is so good. Give it all to Him and see what happens. God bless you all.”  (Illinois) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Things had been seeming to get worse in my stand. I ran into my husband and he didn’t even acknowledge me. It really did hurt. But God! Several days after that incident, God gave me a powerful dream while I slept. In the dream, I knew we were still separated. But when my husband came to visit the kids, he had his ring on. He looked kind of down as well. Somehow in the dream, I knew he had his belongings in his car. In the dream, I was asking the Lord, ‘How can this be? What if I’m not ready? What if I mess up the marriage again?’ And after I was asking the Lord these questions, a semi turned out in front of me with the words ‘Supernatural’ on the trailer. I woke up thanking God. I know that this is a strong sign that my suddenly is near. It’s a sign that I will never be able to figure the situation out, so I just need to trust in Him because the restoration will be SUPERNATURAL. Praise God! Keep standing fellow standers!”  (Missouri) (posted 5/15/2017)
“God is constantly building my faith. I am standing for the salvation of my husband. The marriage restoration is a byproduct of salvation. We don’t have any children together and last year, after a false start, I found out I had fibroids in my body and possibly high estrogen levels making it difficult to conceive. I began to pray for my ovaries and womb. I changed poor nutrition habits thanks to godly wisdom. This month I received news that my ovaries were normal, no mention of fibroids and two days after our wedding anniversary, I walked into divorce court standing next to my husband’s lawyer. The decision was delayed! God proved his faithfulness. I’m standing on the promise in Song of Solomon, 2:12. My restoration is in this season! Thanks be to God!”  (Louisiana) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I want to give God glory and praise. I was able to buy out my husband’s portion of our home after our divorce. Recently, I have been hit by trial after trial with things going wrong with the house. At first I was overwhelmed and was thinking I had made a mistake in keeping the house, but after another trial hit with something else breaking, I realized I needed to start praising God when the trials hit. I did just that after the last problem and I was able to take care of it without too much trouble. God has given me the strength and courage to tackle problems and projects that I never dreamed I would be able to take care of by myself. Thank You, Jesus. I give God all the thanks, glory and praise for being with me in these storms. I will not give up. But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (KJV).”  (New Hampshire) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I’ve been standing for a few months. A devastating false start exposed more lies and led me to RMM. I know God is moving! PRAISE HIM for His faithfulness! My spouse works out-of-state and insisted he wasn’t staying with us this visit. I told him we’d be at the airport regardless. That day he asked if I’d be there. I wanted to ask why, but only said yes. Satan caused an argument later and told me not to go. By faith and trust in God we went. To my surprise, he’d canceled his ride earlier and came home with us. This was a vision God had given me. We spent most of the time as a family and he went to church with us. I prayed for affection and he let his guard down briefly, pulled my arm close, smiled at me and joked. He had a draft of divorce papers to discuss and agreed to take more time to consider restoration before filing. God gave me Isaiah 7:7. I’m confident in God! I will continue to pray and fast for our suddenly.”  (North Dakota) (posted 5/15/2017)
“PTL! My marriage is being restored, Amen! I just want to bless my Almighty God and praise His name for He is an awesome God. Only He made a way where there was no way.”  (South Africa) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I have been standing for my marriage and spouse’s salvation for some time and what a journey it has been. From dealing with the children spending time with the other woman to an Ishmael baby, there are times in this journey, l have wished to quit but God always speaks one way or the other and gently gets me right back on the saddle. Recently my husband has been going through some legal and financial challenges. l offered for us to look for cheaper alternative accommodations as he is the one paying rent and he refused, stating that the rough patch is almost over; we mustn’t abandon everything because of a rough patch. Although he doesn’t know it, he spoke through my stand as well.”  (South Africa) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Praise God. Months ago, my wife left with our children and filed for divorce. She has not spoken to me in months as she pursues her divorce. She moved an hour away, and has not let me see the children at all. I was praying Psalm 86:17 this week. Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me. This week, I was driving to my pastor’s house and I saw my family in traffic. I waved and my wife waved back. I could not see the children through the darkened windows, but I think they saw me. Praise God that He showed me a sign for good! He is so good to me! I know my wife’s salvation and our restoration is coming in His timing.”  (Ohio) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I think I’m to the point where I’m able to set it all down at the cross and walk away in trust, and then the enemy attacks worse than ever before. I heard, ‘I’ve answered every other prayer, why would I stop now?’ That is what I clung to this week as my valley only got deeper, darker. God spoke to me this week as the enemy attacked louder and stronger than ever before. In the stillest smallest voice I heard, ‘I will create a river in the dry wasteland.’ I finally realized the horrible thoughts in my head were not true, and to rebuke the devil and stand up with my head held high again. I don’t know where I am in my walk around Jericho, but I know I’m not alone.”  (Nebraska) (posted 5/15/2017)
“All glory to God, my marriage has been totally restored. I have been praying for years as a believer, but not actually standing for my husband until he left a few months ago. When I came across RMM, I was taught how to stand. I spend more time just meditating on one thing, that is the Word of God. Standers, trust and believe the Word of God. Have faith and you can say to your mountain ‘Move’ and it will move. PTL…The Lord God has spoken it and He will do it.”  (Mississippi) (posted 5/15/2017)
“My suddenly hasn’t happened yet, but God is working behind the scenes. I’m newly walking with the Lord and I’m still learning from Him. I prayed that He would show me a glimpse of the other side of the mountain and He did. My in-home prodigal just told me his job found out about him hanging out with his OW and others from work which isn’t allowed because he’s a manager. He also told me his dreams and I know God is speaking to his heart through his dreams. Praise Jesus! I know I still have a way to go, but I know God is going to carry me through. My scripture I reread daily multiple times is Isaiah 46:11-13. Keep standing because I wanted to give up just yesterday and today things are turning around. Don’t give up, look up and pray whenever it feels too hard. God will give you peace and guidance.”  (Florida) (posted 5/15/2017)

“I found RMM at a very low point in my life. I was in Christ, but everyone around me was telling me to give up on my prodigal spouse. I couldn’t go anywhere without someone reminding me of his adultery and the other OW. I often questioned God because the OW my prodigal husband was seeing was in the church, they attended church together, etc. RMM showed me how to ‘zip my lips’ and to just pray the proper prayer points. After reading different RMM posts and guidelines, several months had gone by and my suddenly happened. I will never forget that day. I was about to give up, not on God, but my marriage. I was struggling financially and didn’t have much to give, however I sowed a seed into RMM. Later that night the unexplainable happened.”  (Florida) (posted 5/15/2017)
“My husband and I were separated when I left due to unresolved issues. I did not want to rush to divorce and came across your website. I began to focus on fasting and prayer. Just as I got to the point where I accepted that we may never reconcile, he contacted me unexpectedly. It was clear that he was ready to work on things. After many months of separation, we began living together again. There are still challenges, but things are better than they were. I continue to rely on prayer and fasting to strengthen our marriage. I’m expecting a baby girl soon, to God be the glory!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/15/2017)

“Over the last few months my husband has been questioning my parenting skills which has caused much tension. I meditated on Luke 1:17. Glory to God, His Spirit is at work. Both my daughters are with their dad and he called me saying he has misunderstood our oldest daughter’s negative behavior and had not seen her anger. Thank God that his heart of stone is softening. I told him how proud I was that he’s maturing in his role as a father. I continue to pray that God gives him a revelation of Christ and our marriage. May we continue to walk in faith.”  (South Africa) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I have been standing a long time. One of the hardest things in standing for marriage is having patience. My prodigal husband needs salvation and he had asked me to leave during our marriage, instead of me waiting for him to come home. The Lord is having him get ready to invite me back. Just out of the blue he called me four times in one day. One of our conversations was over an hour.”  (Illinois) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I confess that instead of standing with faith, I have been sitting with fatigue. It has been a very long time since I’ve dared to call myself a stander. The prayers for a restored marriage have taken a backseat to the daily prayers to help me face the challenges of life, work, finances and teenage children. After many years, being a single parent seems so ‘natural’ until I’m reminded I’ve actually have never been alone. God is always with me, even with my distractions, my tears, my doubt and my shame. Maybe He understands that my lack of words doesn’t mean a lack of faith. And maybe He understands that tiredness doesn’t mean a lack of trust. Thank you always for your encouragement.”  (Hong Kong) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I prayed this morning for a glimpse of God working on the other side of the mountain as I was so tired and feeling hopeless concerning my prodigal wife. In the middle of my prayer time I got a text from a close friend with this scripture: Ecclesiastes 11:5 (NLT)– Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. I normally do not check my phone when I pray, but felt like I needed to for some reason. I thought what a nice verse and kept praying. I responded to the text that I needed to lean more into God by trusting and obeying. My friend and I kept texting back and forth how hard it is to trust and obey. When I got back to my desk I turned on the radio that I keep on a Christian station. Just as I turned it on the DJ read… Ecclesiastes 11:5! God hears our cry, answers and delivers. My friend’s response: ‘Crazy cool how God shows up!’”  (Virginia) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I am learning so much in this restoration journey about the faithfulness of our Lord. After many months of very little communication, I want to praise God for a small breakthrough when my spouse responded to an issue concerning our garage door remote. Not only did he respond, but stopped by to help resolve the situation. Only God could have orchestrated this meeting. Conversation was pleasant and his helpfulness was a clear manifestation of God’s work in his heart. I had prayed that something could have shown me that he is seeking God. When I had the opportunity to check out his new car, the radio was on a national Christian broadcast station. God is faithful. We will reap a harvest if we faint not. Still standing in the gap.”  (Maryland) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I have gone from hearing my beloved say he wants nothing to do with me to no communication at all while watching him with the OW and their non-covenant child. Today I’m completely IN LOVE with God (yes, it’s possible). I’m now the loving wife I should have been and I’m praying for both of them. I forced my husband to leave because of his infidelity, but God has given me a new heart. I know God is working on the other side because my beloved’s heart has softened towards me and he now calls. He keeps it strictly business, but the stone heart is not being projected toward me anymore and he doesn’t speak mean to me anymore. It’s a great sign of progress and it happened suddenly. I just purchased the ‘Be Still’ CD from RMM. I believe God is reminding me that in His timing, God will accomplish all that He promises and all I have to do is keep praying and wait.”  (Florida) (posted 5/15/2017)
“My wife filed for divorce a few months ago. I turned to God; praying, reading the Bible, seeking Christian counsel. God has been absolutely amazing in my brokenness. Ever since I repented and surrendered, the Holy Spirit has filled me like no other time in my life. It hasn’t been easy, but God has never left my side. I prayed every day for restoration. Sadly, the divorce became final recently. However, during mediation, I had some downtime while the mediator met with my wife and her lawyer in another room. I saw a text from a friend with a link to Rejoice Marriage Ministries. God’s timing! I clicked on the link and was blown away by all of the testimonies validating the things I had been talking to God about for the last several months. I immediately had a feeling of peaceful resolve to STAND. I don’t know what the future holds, my stand has just begun, but God does. All glory to Him. Thank you for all the standers who have unknowingly inspired me and given me encouragement.”  (Minnesota) (posted 5/15/2017)
“’I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. ’Early this year I felt anxious, pressured, accused each time I read correspondence I received, questioning myself, ‘Am I doing enough?’ I took myself away from all social media, stopped reading emails. I felt condemned for not getting it right. My husband has started divorce proceedings. He rarely speaks to me. I miss his presence. But my Defender, Counselor, Healer, Protector, Father, Provider, Teacher has taken all that away. I am no longer praying ‘fervent anxiety ridden’ prayers. I focus on praying for my husband and myself, for the Spirit of the Holy Spirit and for protection. My relationship with the Lord is far closer, more peaceful. I am able to defend myself and identify the enemy’s attacks. My go to book is ‘The Battlefield of the Mind’ by Joyce Meyer. Phrases such as standing on the Word, speaking life into your marriage, all these were new to me. Let God do His will and wait. He is able.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I had just stepped out on an errand and heard an unusual ring tone. I looked around thinking it must be my neighbor’s phone. Finally realizing it was mine, I took it from my pocket and saw my beautiful wife’s picture. It had been so long since she had called me I had forgotten I gave her a unique ring tone. Shocked, I answered and we talked. We had a small tiff, but got through it, and exchanged some texts later. I now have peace, and more hope and faith that the gracious Lord will restore us. I am waiting for her to call again when she is ready. A week before, I bought new picture frames to post Bible verses around my house, and one was Proverbs 21:1. I have been speaking against the mountain between us in prayer, and although it seemed immovable for a long time, it is beginning to crack from the weight and power of God’s Word and my faith. He is a mighty God.”  (California) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I am praising and thanking our Lord for answering one of my prayers. I have been standing for a few years post civil divorce, have no children and no communication. The Lord answered one prayer by making it possible for me to have dinner with a fellow stander who lives in my state. It was a beautiful evening of two standers supporting each other. At the end of the night, the last thing I said to her was, ‘How can I show my husband the love of Christ if I have no contact?’ The next morning, I woke up to an email that I had to forward to my husband. In the past, he wouldn’t respond, but this time he did. We had a few exchanges about something he needed and I was grateful to have the opportunity and grace from our Lord to show him love and compassion. I even felt led to end the last email with ‘Always praying for you.’ For months, I have been asking the Lord to let my husband know that I still love him and he is welcome home. I am so grateful to our Lord for answering my prayers.”  (New Jersey) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Many years ago, the Lord led me to the RMM website. It has been a blessing in my life. Since then I have been praying for God to make a way to connect with other standers around the world. Lo and behold I received an email from RMM with good news as the website, very soon, will have the capability of connecting standers directly. I wept when I read that as it was an answered prayer. I’m encouraged and will continue to stand and believe for the restoration of my marriage as there is nothing impossible with God. ‘You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.’  Matthew 21:22 (NLT).”  (New York) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Praise the good Lord. He answered our prayers and dismissed my divorce. It seemed hopeless in the end. I waited by my phone at lunch time to receive a confirmation text about the divorce. Instead I found out that it was thrown out! Thank You, Jesus! Thank you to all who prayed for my court date also.”  (Australia) (posted 5/15/2017)
“God loves me so much and He is restoring my sense of wonder and worthiness in Christ to receive my marriage restored. My covenant moved many states away and, quite amazingly, communication has increased to about once per week! I’ve been praying for a healing call between us. He told me a story of he and his niece, who is a 10-year old believer, having a conversation. His niece commented about a situation maybe a woman needs ‘to reconcile with him.’ Out of the mouths of babes! Then he went on to tell me how he would have used a moment with his niece as a grace teaching moment. Reconciliation and grace words in the same conversation. God is moving in his heart. And mine. I recognized today that, thinking about him talking about grace and how wonderfully alive he sounds now, that I was wrongly carrying self-condemnation and unworthiness in my heart regarding my restoration. I receive my new marriage by Jesus’ grace!”  (Florida) (posted 5/15/2017)
“My husband and I were separated when I left due to unresolved issues. I did not want to rush to divorce and came across your website. I began to focus on fasting and prayer. Just as I got to the point where I accepted that we may never reconcile, he contacted me unexpectedly. It was clear that he was ready to work on things. After many months of separation, we began living together again. There are still challenges, but things are better than they were. I continue to rely on prayer and fasting to strengthen our marriage. I’m expecting a baby girl soon, to God be the glory!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/15/2017)
“Praise the Lord, my prayers are finally being answered! Last year I suffered a terrible accident. I was unable to walk for six months due to my injuries. During this time, I found out my husband had just started a relationship with another woman via Facebook. My world came crashing down, and I thought life as I knew it would never be the same. I was desperate for God to save my marriage. I came across RMM and began to battle the enemy through prayer and fasting. I chose to listen to God and seek His truths. I chose to stand when it all seemed to be lost and dead. After many months of prayer, my husband finally came to understand he had been deceived by the enemy and that God was calling him back to His kingdom. I have declared victory in the name of Jesus Christ and I cannot wait to share how God is going to redeem my life like he did with Job. I will testify when he turns my ashes into beauty in His timing. Don’t ever give up!”  (California) (posted 5/9/2017)
