hi lovely tasbeha forum guys!
i'm running out of explainations again for a protestant enquirer, so i need help!
please explain, if you can, why the saints who have departed pray for us, and why we ask them for their intercesions to God on our behalf.
i have explained that in hebrews 11 we are told of a great crowd of witnesses that see what is happening in our lives, and said that we don't stop praying just because we have died, but can anyone add anything else?
i can accept the tradition based on the Bible verses i understand, but i obviously don't understand it very well coz i can't explain it!
please help :)
