"Let everyone who is Godly pray to You while You may be found"  (Psalm 32:6)


For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another. (Ps 75:6-7)

With Catholics in every nation (many of those nations with papal embassies) the new pope and the Roman Church will continue to wield considerable power. The next pope could be a voice for Biblical grace and truth or an agent for godless change, just as are many church leaders, both Catholic and Protestant.

  • The College of Cardinals will assemble Monday, April 18, to elect a new pope.
  • All but three of 117 eligible to vote were appointed by Pope John Paul II. Experts expect the new pope to follow in his conservative steps.
  • Yet, Catholic liberals, pro-communist "liberation" theologians, advocates for female priests, liberal divorce, homosexuality, abortion, etc., are lobbying for a pope to advance their beliefs.
  • Pope John Paul II used his "bully pulpit" to speak forcefully for the sanctity of life and against the culture of death. The next pope will have the same opportunity, but will he be a "wolf in sheep's clothing" and do irreparable harm to the pro-life, pro-family movement?
  • Years ago, Pope John Paul II was reported to have predicted a power-struggle after his death. "We are standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced the final confrontation between the church and the antichurch," he said.

Whether or not we agree with all of Catholic theology, Scripture calls upon the "saints," all who trust Jesus as Lord and Savior, to "bind" "kings" and "nobles" through prayer and praise ­ and so to restrain evil (Ps 149:5-9; 1 Jn 3:8). Therefore, Christians can positively impact the election of kings, presidents, popes and prelates through prayer and praise.
