The Intercession of the Saints
As part of their belief in the role of the saints as professed
in the Apostles Creed, Catholic Christians petition the
intercession of the saints.
The apostle Paul frequently asked other fellow believers in
Jesus to pray for him.
At the same time,
pray for us
, too, that God may open
a door to us for the word, to speak of the mystery of
Christ, for which I am in prison.
... join me in the struggle by
your prayers to God
