Question 2: Can Catholics pray directly to God?
Explanation: Catholics can pray directly to God. Catholics also offer prayers to the Virgin Mary and the Saints, asking for their help. This is the same as asking a friend to pray for you.
Question 3: The word prayer is not as old as we think. In what century did the English word â€~prayerâ€ come into use?
Answer: 13th Century
Explanation: The English word, â€~prayerâ€ is relatively new, dating back to the early 13th century. It means to ask earnestly.
Question 4: True or False? Must you address a prayer to God or to a saint when saying one?
Explanation: Prayers do not travel as letters do, so it is not required to address a letter, or to invoke the name of to whom it is offered. God and the saints know your heart, which is sufficient.
Question 5: Is it possible to pray for an atheist?
Explanation: Anyone may be the object of a prayer, even if they do not believe, deserve, or refuse to accept the graces that come by prayer.
