Praying to the Saints - XVIII

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

Not only do those in heaven pray with us, they also pray for us. In the book of  Revelation, we read: "[An] angel came and stood at the altar [in heaven] with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God" (Rev. 8:3-4).
