prayer! i don't understand it at all!

    The Vatican has asked the world to pray for the Pope. I admit I don't know much about Catholicism but I find it hard to believe that there is God the Almighty who knows who deserves to go to the one H or the other will be sitting around counting the prayers about the Pope's future. Can He not make up his own mind? Does a man or woman or baby have to pray to god themselves (or have others crying for him) before that Giant in man's mind awards them a corner in Heaven? Even, if the person concerned had been an obedient servant of the written word and plunged -sword, shield and bow- head long into the Crusade to Catholice these heathen muslims!
    Anyone who knows about such ridiculous matters, can they give me an explanation, please?
