Prayer: God, our refuge

God, our refuge, you have promised shelter and safety for those who love and trust in you.
Yet in the world around us we see faithful people suffering, innocent people injured and dying, children starving and women attacked and molested.
Daily we hear of wars, injustice, prejudice, hatred, violence, destruction and disease.
Disasters occur, natural or otherwise, and lives, homes and communities are destroyed.
And we ask, why?
Why are some of these people faithful followers of your way?
Why should anyone be allowed to die unnaturally?
Are we not all your children and entitled to your protection and the refuge from harm that you have promised to provide?
Is it too difficult a question for us to understand, or for you to answer?
