Should we pray to Mary?

  • I was just sharing this with someone on our site and I thought I would share it with you. What do you think?  

     

     

    Please do remember that the worship of Mary is a sin. We must worship the Lord our God and serve Him only. Praying to another is putting another in the place of God. Mary was just like any other woman who serves the Lord. We must not pray to people and depend on man but on God. "Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans" - NLT -  Jeremiah 17:5

     

    GW Translation says is this way: 

     

    "This is what the LORD says: Cursed is the person who trusts humans, who makes flesh and blood his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD." 

     

    In the NASB it is translated this way: 

     

    Thus says the LORD, "Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the LORD.

    Rafi Bazlent If you believe that when one dies in Christ then he /she will be in heaven and will be alive then, St. Mary the Mother of God is alive in heaven with Jesus. When you say to the church or one of the church members say to you pray for me, then what is wrong...  more

    Grace Gayle Even if one believes in the fact that Mary can hear us and I am not sure she can. Why would you pray to her when Jesus is the ultimate one to the Father. We can ask for people to pray with us here on earth but certainly not for us

    Grace Gayle To clarify we do ask for people to pray for us and with us, but not through any other mediator except Christ alone
