I'm trying to understand the meaning of prayers, But not just to see it as a communication with God, but more as a unity with Him.
That's why I would like to ask if Jesus' mother Mary, or His relatives, were praying for Him during his lifetime for protection, strength or other necessities. Is there an official Catholic doctrine as to whether these prayers were necessary or meaningful as Jesus was indeed full of grace?
Is there any record of any such prayers?
Praying for Jesus sounds like nonsense, but not praying for him sounds ridiculous too...
Please, I'm only interested in the Catholic perspective, thanks.
