Angels were created by God (just as we were), and only our Creator is worthy of our adoration. We also aren’t to pray to angels — and we don’t need to! Jesus Christ has opened heaven’s door to us, and we have direct access to the Father through Him (see Hebrews 4:14-16).
Three Hail Marys is a traditional Roman Catholic devotional practice of reciting three Hail Marys as a petition for purity and other virtues. Believers recommend that it be prayed after waking in the morning, and before going to bed, following the examination of conscience at night.
In many Protestant traditions, including the Reformed tradition, we do not refer to specific saints in our worship or prayers because we hold to the belief in the priesthood of all believers. If every believer is a priest, then it is not necessary to request the intercession of saint to appeal to God.
