How do you explain that intercession is more effective than if I would pray directly to God? Since God is not deaf, why is intercession so efficient, compared to direct prayer?
Is it because in the Communion of the Saints, the Saints are closer to God? But then we get back to the first problem, since God doesn’t need anyone to report or advocate, so that He might know more, change His mind and so on.
I hope i am just missing or forgetting an important point, but as an example it could be :
Me: Lord, thank you for all, please give me strengh for tomorrow’s exams
The Lord answers by a no
Saint Peter says: but Lord, that’s all he needs to succeed…
the Lord says…well, ok.
It can’t be so. But on the other Hand Abraham intercedes in a sense for Sodom, and points out to the Lord that there might be a Just. ANd God states what he will do if it is so. So God doesn’t need that pleading strictly said.
Thank you for giving me an enlighting analogy.
