When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. - Revelation 6:7-8
Dear Lord Jesus,
It's a horrible reality but it's true. Until the day you return there will be famine and plagues that kill people. You pin the entire planet to the mat and make us look up for the answers. Your answers have to do with rescue and not restoration of the earth. You came and died so that death could be the doorway to heaven. That alone gives us peace in the face of famine and plague. This ain't heaven and it never will be. Your word seals the deal. So, I will evermore put my hope in the perfect redemption you have won for me. Thank you for getting me out of here alive, forever. I will live in this hope and do my best to share it with others.

Death will prowl the earth until the end of time but because of Jesus it will lose it's grip on all believers.
