Intercessory Prayer

Have you ever wondered why Orthodox Christians ask the Saints for intercession? Or why we pray for the forgiveness and salvation of those who have already passed away? On this week’s program, Dr. David C. Ford, a professor of church history at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, explains why these practices are Biblical and fully part of the ancient Christian faith. Also, Dr. Maria Khoury is an Orthodox Christian who has lived with her husband for almost 18 years in the Palestinian occupied territory and talks with us about their day-to-day struggles in that part of the Holy Land.
