We don't have seances. We AND our Orthodox brethren ask the saints who are alive in heaven to pray to God on our behalf.<quoted text>
Does God answer the prayers of your friends for you?
i PRAY TO GOD THE FATHER IN JESUS NAME
as per the instructions of Jesus..
(DRB) And in that day you shall not ask me any thing. Amen, amen, I say to you:
if you ask the Father any thing in my name, he will give it you.
(Geneva) And in that day shall ye aske me nothing. Verely, verely I say vnto you,
whatsoeuer ye shall aske the Father in my Name, he will giue it you.
(KJV) And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
I don't involve myself in seances.
(DRB) Let us go therefore with confidence to the throne of grace: that we may obtain mercy and find grace in seasonable aid.
(Geneva) Let vs therefore goe boldly vnto ye throne of grace, that we may receiue mercy, and finde grace to helpe in time of neede.
(KJV) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
You don't ever ask anyone to pray for you?
