Prayers to the saints, the angels and the departed ones
« on: February 06, 2013, 09:19:43 PM »
Can anyone recommend any of the psalms in the scriptures for this intercession prayer?
Have been trying to use Psalms 91 and 148, but not sure if they cover it all.

Maybe this is strange or foolish, but my intention is not.
The meaning of life is to acquire the grace of the Holy Spirit.

Usually when the lines in the Psalms are addressed speaking to angels/saints, they are commands to praise the Lord.
And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.
