Intercession of the Saints by: Bro. Nicholai Lucenos,CFD

  
PRAYER OF INTERCESSION

CCC 2634

The Holy Spirit “himself intercede for us… and intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8: 26-27 (King James Version)

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

CCC 2635

Since Abraham, intercession — asking on behalf of another — has been characteristic of a heart attuned to God’s mercy. In the age of the church, christian intercession participates in Christ’s , as an expression of saints.

In intercession , he who pray looks “not only to his own interests, but also to the interest of others,” even to the point of praying for those who do him harm.

Philippians 2:4 (New American Standard Bible)

do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

CCC 2636

Thus the Apostle Paul gives them a share in his ministry of preaching the Gospel but also intercedes for them.

2 Thessalonians 1: 11 (New American Standard Bible )

—  To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power,

Colossians 1:3  (New American Standard Bible )

—  We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

ON THE OTHER PART IS THE ARGUMENT OF OUR SEPARATED REGARDING OF INTERCESSION OF THE SAINTS:

OBJECTION:

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2: 5,  King James Version)

ANSWER:

Yes Brother it is true that Jesus is the only mediator between God and men regarding with salvation.

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

1 Timothy 2:3-4, King James Version

He is our Savior because of redemption to us but it is not contrary in the bible regarding in intercession of someone like Saints. It is stated in the bible that Saint Paul is urging with the Intercession and as well Saint Paul also intercede someone or need a help.

INTERCESSION:

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

(1 Timothy 2:1, King James Version)

That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;  (Romans 15:31, King James Version)

“For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me,

saying, `Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you.

( Acts of the Apostles 27: 23-24,  New American Standard Version)

FURTHER EXPLANATION:

My Brother and Sister in Christ it is not contrary in the bible when we need a Intercession of the Saints regarding of their prayers.

Where can we find in  the bible , the chapter and verse that tells  us that intercession of the saints are strictly prohibited?
