The way that I explain it is that we are asking the saints to pray for us and our needs to God. It basically is the same thing as asking a living person to pray for us, except the saints are dead and in heaven, close to God. Personally, I think that the prayers of the saints, especially the Blessed Mother, are more effective because they are closer to God than us mere morals.
