I know you believe it is pointless and sinful to ask our deceased relative and friends, or saints, to pray for us.
Is it also pointless and/or sinful to ask angels—such as the angel Jesus says is assigned to each of us—to pray for or assist us in any way?
“....Is it also pointless/sinful to ask angelssuch as the angel Jesus says is assigned to each of usto pray for or assist us in any way?....”
Why would any individual pray to anyone other than Jesus? Common sense tells us He’s the King and we have direct access to Him at any time...and He has asked we make our requests known to HIM.
It would seem people who have a need to go elsewhere aren’t comfortable enough taking to Jesus. I think it has much to do with whatever their relationship is with Him....maybe their too distant from Him...maybe they haven’t spent enough time with Him to build the ralationship of trust....but it likely falls on their relationship with Him and where that is.
I just have a heart to share the Lord and show others how He has worked in my life and want that so badly for them as well. But it seems I have wandered into a catholic vs. protestant slug fest and, quite frankly, don’t see much of the Spirit of the Lord on either side.
I go straight to the throne of God and make my prayers known and He delights in answering them for me. It is not up to me to convince you of anything relating to your religion, Arthur, and I really had no idea how dear these things are to you and other Catholics. When/if the Lord chooses to reveal any truth to you, He will.
In the meantime, I will just continue to post things that show how the Lord has worked in me and for me and you may take from them, or not, as you will.
May God bless you,
