The Psalmist says of God, “You hear the desire of the afflicted” (Psalm 10: 17). It is good to know that our petitions are heard and understood by God. He cares about your marriage listens attentively to your cries. He cares that you want a healthy marriage, free from conflict and turmoil. He wants you to thrive and live in peace.
