    You haven't defined good or evil.

    I'd use my powers to keep my house immaculately clean and cook while reading books. I'd go about my life normally but if I'd hold doors open for people from a distance and help them bring groceries into their house from a distance, keep dangerous things away from myself and others if that happens, etc. I guess one could call that good.

    I think it would probably mainly be used to get money though, so perhaps we'd get a new world ruler.

    To whom and by what standard. I mean if I could kill all humans, that would properly be good for some animals.

    I would pray to God to take away any kind of power that was given to me, I am in no need of them

    I guess it would depend on the person and what you consider to be good and evil.

    For example, would killing a brutal dictator be good or evil?

    The vast majority would use power to satisfy their ego's desires: greed, lust and so forth because that's what's important to them.

    The story of Milarepa, "Tibet's greatest yogi", misusing power for personal revenge when he was young is how I see it.
