Of Popes and Presidents - Psalm 2
Two things remind me of crowns today - the Pope giving two weeks notice yesterday and President Obama giving the State of the Union address this evening. So I have chosen Psalm 2 for the reflection. "The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One. . . . The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. . . . I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill."
It is a reminder that no matter what earthly king, president or pope sits in office, Christ the King is still in charge. Popes and presidents answer to God, the most high, the almighty. In Christ is our security.
"Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling."

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
