This I say:in the bible never has been mentioned that we pray to the saints.Jesus said unless man be born again he cannot enter into the kingdom of born again my friends,ask forgiveness and repent from your sinful ways,accept Jesus as your personal savior.salvation is the first step then you can talk to God(prayer) not to the saints.remember this:God determines how we approach him not in any way we want

We don't pray to the saints. We ask them to pray for us. And anything we may ask of them, we adsk through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Prayers through Saints or straight to Jesus Is good deed a form to say our daily prayers, not to hurt another, help people, to be human and good humanbeing. God Wants us to come close in any way. Respect every Saints. Search for for good in every one in this world. No criticism about any One shall do no good. Amen.

Asking for a Saints intercession on our behalf is never wrong. It is always good to have friends in high places. After all they are with our God and will intercede for us. Don't people like important influential friends on earth to help them out?
