    9. Praying with faith can help loved ones feel comfort and peace.

    When you pray, you’re sending your loved one positive energy. And when they feel comfort and peace, it can help them move on to a better place. If you’re having trouble praying for your deceased loved one, here are some ideas that might help:

    • Talk about them as if they’re still alive, even though they’ve passed away. This helps keep their memory alive in your mind and heart. If your loved one liked to listen to music or watch movies with you, think about what kind of music or movies would make them happy right now (and ask other family members what kinds of things their loved ones enjoyed most). You could also tell stories about the things you did together before they died—those memories will come back as well!
    • Find a quiet place where no one else is around (like an empty classroom), then sit down with pen and paper in hand so that nothing distracts from talking directly with God Himself — remember this isn’t just another “prayer request”; this is going into His presence so we can ask him specifically for guidance regarding our loss.”


    By following the steps outlined above, you will be able to say a powerful prayer for the deceased that makes it easier for them to cross over into heaven. It is important to remember that no one can help someone who does not want their help; all we can do is pray for their soul and hope that they are ready at some point in the future.
