Praying to the Saints - XVII

Praying to the Saints - Why do we Venerate the Saints?  
In Heaven and On Earth (I)
Source - Malankara World

The Bible directs us to invoke those in heaven and ask them to pray with us.

Thus in Psalms 103, we pray, "Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word! Bless the Lord, all his hosts, his ministers that do his will!" (Ps. 103:20-21). And in Psalms 148 we pray, "Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise him in the
heights! Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host!" (Ps. 148:1-2).
