πŸ•‚How to Pray to a Saint :



🌿 Have you ever been fascinated by the saints, historical Christian figures that are believed to have lived exceptionally holy lives? Have you ever wondered if they play a role in your life? Read the Life of the particular Saint. The story of their life can be found in books, and they can be found online as well. Some of the most famous saints (the Virgin Mary, the Archangel Michael, etc) can be found almost anywhere, while many saints are much more obscure.


🌿Follow Your Usual Prayer Ritual. Simply because you are asking for a Saint's prayers doesn't mean that you have to change the way you are used to praying. Pray however you wish.

🌿 Be Calm and Focused. Any prayer without these qualities isn't very helpful, either for you or for whoever you might be praying for.

🌿 Say the Prayer. It can be either written or in your own words, whichever you prefer. It can be as simple or as grand as you wish. The point is that the prayer should be your own.

🌿 Conclude the Prayer. This can be done with a simple 'Amen', making the Sign of the Cross, or whichever method you are used to.

πŸ•‚Tips :



🌿Look up the patronages of various saints. This is a common practice within the Roman Catholic Church, which uses official patronages. The concept of patron saints isn't as common within the Orthodox Church, and if a saint is considered a patron of something it usually isn't set in stone.

🌿There are a lot of unofficial patronages as well. 

🌿Some people pray to the saints before they move onto praying to God as a form of preparation of talking to Him.

🌿Many religions outside of Christianity also have Saints. They may call them by different names and have different customs surrounding them, though.

🌿If you have a particular saint that you admire, celebrate their feast day. The Roman Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox Churches all have official calendars of Saints, and may celebrate the same saint on different days.

🌿Some saints have more than one Feast day.

🌿If you are in need of great help through prayer, try a Novena (Roman Catholic tradition)  


πŸ•‚ Warnings :

🌿Some people may not understand why you pray to the Saints. If they ask sincere questions, feel free to answer them. But if they are just trying to annoy you, don't pay them any attention.

🌿If your prayer request isn't answered, don't be discouraged. There are many things that could happen in the future. It could be answered one day far off in the future.

🌿Some groups are seriously opposed to the practicing devotion to the Saints. If you belong to one of these groups, don't let them know about it.

🌿If they find out, remind them that your beliefs come before anything else.

🌿In other words, remind them that if you have to choose between your beliefs or the relationship in question, you'll pick your beliefs every time.

πŸ“ƒ Praying to the Saints πŸ“ƒ

The historic Christian practice of asking our departed brothers and sisters in Christ—the saints—for their intercession has come under attack in the last few hundred years. Though the practice dates to the earliest days of Christianity and is shared by Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, the other Eastern Christians, and even some Anglicans—meaning that all-told it is shared by more than three quarters of the Christians on earth—it still comes under heavy attack from many within the Protestant movement that started in the sixteenth century.
