AMEN Betty! and sending love and a hug as well as praying for you and your whole family in this time.For now, we can pray for those whose faith in Christ, puts them in grave danger in their Countries.
Praying for others is not only our duty, but it is a gift to be able to pray for strangers that we will meet face to face in Heaven.

God Loves Broken People
I will not reject the sacrifice of a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
Psalm 51:17 (WEB)
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.
A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.”
There are many things that break people. Death of a family member, divorce, loss of a job among many. Broken people can become ashamed of their brokenness and seek to hide their pain. People who are prone to independence force themself to stay strong until sometimes they break in half.
God calls broken people to come to Him. We need not hide our pain and pretend it does not exist. He calls us to come to come to Him and He will comfort us and heal our brokenness. Healing may happen over time but the more time we spend with God the more we will begin to heal.
We live in a broken world. Every day we see the signs of the coming judgment of God. The media covers up the sins of those they admire and ignores the victims that their heroes create. It may seem there is no justice for the innocent, but God knows and one day all the hidden evil will be revealed and God will revenge the victims.
Do not despair. God is soon going to take His children home. Hang on to your faith in God and trust Him. These are uncertain times, but our future Home in Heaven is a promise from God.
I've been for you Betty, God knows the deep hurt because of your loss. I don't think it's wrong to question God, why? Sometimes I believe He gives us glimpses and yet most times we don't know why except that we can trust Him at His word!
My mother has Alzheimer's and she has been at a nursing home now for a couple of months. I don't understand why in the beginning she never told me. I know she was scared, I know she cried and I have shared the gospel with her and my Dad so often. My heart hurts and yet God comforts. I have not seen her since early Spring but I face time with her and I have a hard time not crying. Most days she doesn't know who I am, but, I think there are small short glimpses but they are getting fewer and shorter as time goes on.
"He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds"
(Ps. 147: 3)
