Psalm 9:7-10

But the Lord sits enthroned forever, he has established his throne for judgment.
He judges the world with righteousness; he judges the peoples with equity.
The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
 
Psalm 9:7-10 

I always find it interesting that nonbelievers often use the suffering of others as their excuse for not believing in God. But those who are doing the actual suffering are the ones who are most likely to put their faith in God. 

I pray not to avoid the troubles of the world, O God, but rather for the faith to place my trust in you when they come. Amen.
