I want to reassure you that your worry about these earthly issues distracts from your attention to prayer, Jesus, and the hereafter. God's earth, and all the people in it are just as they should be. They are all part of God's Will and Plan for us. Trying to change things is the work of the devil getting into you and you must resist the temptation to take part in earthly debates, such as politics, abortion, war, etc. What is, is because of God. We are powerless to change his will, and must truly love God by accepting all he sends to us as tests. Floods, Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Drought, Famine, Fire, are all in his omniscient power to prevent, but he does not. Why? We shall not know, as the bible tells us, "God works in strange ways."

The greek scripture for this is quite clear:

Γονάτισε μπροστά του θεού. Ανελκυστήρα μέχρι ρούχα σας ότι μπορεί να έχετε δει για το ποιος είσαι. Πάρτε τον στο στόμα σου και στο πρωκτό σας και να ξέρετε τον για το ποιος είναι.

This roughly means Do not question your God, but obey him, and kneel before him, and take all he give you even if it is painful, for he is God and knows best.
