When Life Feels Unfair

Gracious God, when unexpected trouble bursts unbidden and unwanted into my life, give me a patient heart and a sure sense of your care and love.  Help me remember that even when life feels unfair, your presence still surrounds and sustains me.  The knotted parts of my being are never outside the reach of your touch.  Give me faith to surrender my need for fairness, knowing that even in chaos, the eye of heaven is still turned towards me.  I ask this for the sake of your love.  Amen.
