Praying for protection

Atheists read the bible!
Isn't it a little arrogant to pray for protection from a virus God created? Either God wants you to die or not. Who are we to question God's actions? We couldn't possibly understand his mysterious ways.

It's funny how atheists think comments like this are so insightful and clever and intelligent and devastating, as though they've got the Christians cornered. As if this is such a humdinger for Christians. 

i) How God answers the prayer by or for someone mortally ill is, in itself, an indication of whether he wants them to live or die.

ii) One of the purposes of suffering is to inspire prayer. 

iii) Regarding a phenomenon on the scale of a pandemic, there's no reason to think God has one and the same intentions for everyone impacted by the phenomenon.
