Lutheran Liturgical Quote of the Day

"Besides, we grant that the angels pray for us. This is attested to by Zech. 1:12, where the angel prays, 'O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou have no mercy on Jerusalem?' We also grant that the saints in heaven pray for the church in general, as they prayed for the church universal while they were on earth." (Apology of the Augsburg Confession, Tappert, 230:8,9)
