A Heartdweller recently stated: “I remember i heard this: we have only 3 Holy’s. The Holy Father,The Holy Son and The Holy Spirit. So when I pray to Mary, I don’t say ‘Holy’ Mary but rather I would say ‘Mother’ Mary.
You are confused and have misunderstood her role… We don’t pray to Mary or through Mary. We pray to God and she joins her prayers to GOD with us, just like your prayer partner on Earth. She is a prayer partner in the Great Cloud, cheering us on. And because the Scriptures say she is “full of grace” she is able to know by the Holy Spirit when we are dialing her up and asking for her prayers.
Please listen to the teachings Jesus gave us on the Great Cloud of Witnesses and what their role is.
Understand, this teaching is being opposed by Satan, because he hates her intercession to God on our behalf. He has lost many souls because of this prayer. And so, he has sent a Religious spirit out around the world to twist this devotion into a lie.
Martin Luther had a devotion to Mary and prayed the Rosary. You would be shocked if you could see what the enemy has stolen from Jesus in His Early Church..—and how most evangelicals and Pentecostals repeat the same lies without examining the Scriptures!
The answer to your dilemma is in the Wedding of Cana narrative.
John 2:1-12 On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.”
This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.
This is what Scripture says. Please meditate on this and ask the Lord for yourself what He intended here.
Love, Clare p.s. I’m praying for you.
