Taught To Pray To Saints

AS A CATHOLIC, we have been taught to pray to saints like Saint Paul and Saint Peter. When we pray to these saints, our prayers are granted. Is this God's will?

It IS God's will for prayers to be answered, and blessing to come. However, the Holy Bible says NOT to pray to saints and angels, but only to God in Jesus' name.

The bible clearly says there are no other gOD but me and to put no other god before me. THIS includes Mary. One more thing, if you don't pray in the name of Jesus, your prayers will not be answered. MY FAVORITE ten commandment is=== Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Do we really need another scripture.

One doesn't need to quote bible to understand why we don't need Mary or Saints to enterced between us and GOD.
Consider the following:
GOD is EVER knowing! He already knows what you are about to ask way before the thought pops into your head.
Plus, asking someone who is already in heaven to enterced for you is really not necessary, why?
GOD knows everything, the past, present and future.
What GOD needs is 1 on 1 relationship with him! The FAITH factor!

According to scripture (bible) and not opinion, we know that GOD, CHRIST and the HOLY SPIRIT are the same.
Many don't accept this because they think 'How can GOD be three separate entities at once?'.. thus limiting GOD's power.
But consider the following;
GOD made everything in existence (the massive universe and everything in it). His power is MAJESTIC and unimaginably POWERFUL!
Glory be to my GOD, the Rock, my Savior! All worship and prayer belong to you only FOREVER!
I love you GOD!

"O bless the Lord, you His angels." Psalm 102LXX/103Heb. This is a DIRECT invocation of angels, and in the Bible, too.

Psalms 69:34, "Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein."

Does that mean that it is ok to pray to fishes, and plantets etc?

Psalms 150:6, "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD."

Does that mean it is ok to pray to any animal that breathes?

**None of that is Biblical. **

"O bless the Lord, you His angels." Psalm 102LXX/103Heb. This is a DIRECT invocation of angels, and in the Bible, too.

Jesus said:"I am the way,the truth and the life.No one comes to the Father but through me."No Mary or any Saints mentioned there?
---Martin on 2/4/07

A person's loyalty is found when they are on their knee's. If they worship saints, there loyalty is not for Christ. It proves where their heart is at. Whatever results happen in prayer does not matter, what matter's is who do you love more, Christ or the saints? While excuses are always given that they are not prayers, the bottom line is they don't trust or put their faith in Christ but someone else.

The RCC does teach it's people to pray to saints and the dead etc. None of that is Biblical. When you pray to dead people you are praying to demon spirits. The devil will cause those "prayers" to be answered so he can keep a hold of you. He turns himself into an angel of light, which means he makes things that are not good look good to the eye.

**If we pray to Saints we make those Saints Gods*8

* W * R * O * N * G * !!!

No more than asking your friends to pray for you makes them gods, either.

Besides, the invocation of saints and angels is directly taught in the Bible.

As a Roman Catholic you follow the church commandments and doctrine of your church.

Outside RC, Christians follow the teachings of Jesus Christ found in the Bible. "Whatever you ask in my Name, that I will do. . ." John 14:13
Full Gospel Christians never pray to dead saints or angels. They pray directly to God according to His will.
---agnes on 2/3/07

People pray to God's.
If we pray to Saints we make those Saints Gods
And in the Scriptures God says, "thy shall have no Gods before me." It's a problem but I'm sure you can figure it out.
