No, she can't do anything. She is in her grave. Jesus is the only mediator we need. Jesus is alive, and waiting for you to accept Him as Lord and Savior of your life. Mary was only a woman chosen to be a vessel to give birth to the Savior, but she was a sinner, just like you and me.Romans 3:23 says, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." First John 1:8 adds, "If any man says he has no sin he is a liar and the truth is not in him." These texts could not be clearer for millions of Protestants: "How could anyone believe Mary was free from all sin in light of these Scripture passages? What’s more, Mary herself said, ‘My soul rejoices in God my savior’ in Luke 1:47. She clearly understood herself to be a sinner if she admits to needing a savior. She recognized her need for the Savior as well. She is nothing but dust now. When Jesus returns, she will be made whole again.

A very simple answer would be NO! She is in her grave. Mary is no different than any other 'child of God'--..."the dead in Christ shall meet Him in the air"! This happens at the second coming of Christ! Mary found favor in the eyes of God and was chosen of God to be His birth mother, but she was a human just like any other woman conceived in sin, JUST as every other man or woman beginning with Cain, firstborn of Adam and Eve. --Andy--

No, Mary cannot intercede for us to God the Father only Jesus His only begotten Son can do that. That's why He (Jesus) sits at the right hand of God His Father because He has earned that position by willingly giving His life for us by living a lowly life being humiliated, going to the cross, suffering on the cross, shedding His blood, receiving stripes for our healing. All He did was freely given for us that we might be forgiven and saved from our sins and have eternal life with Him and God in Heaven. In 1John 1:1 it says "If we are faithful to confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." To me scripture says it all and that's what we are suppose to live according to. Amen
