Patrick) Actually, we pray only to God; however, in prayer we communicate with the saintsn as we open ourselves to God.  The saints are important to us in our struggles and humanity because thef have experienced the same trials.  Although Jesus could always talk directly with His Father, apparently God thought it important that Jesus communicate with two saints of Judaism, Moses and Elijah, in prayer upon the mountain of the Transfiguration.  Jesus, Moses, and Elijah talked about His coming trials and death in Jerusalem (His 'exodus').
