Praying for resurrection is different than praying for them to have eternal life. While it is not wrong to pray for someone who is already dead , there is no purpose is asking God to have mercy on them. We don’t decide when people have eternal life or eternal death. Only God judges on the day of judgment.
Romans 10 :9-10, 13 are employed to affirm that one must confess with his mouth, that is, say the sinner’s prayer, in order to become a Christian.
Dear Lord, Thank you for demonstrating Your love for us, even when we were still sinners. Please open ____’s eyes to see your demonstrations of love all around her. Let her discover the joy that comes from knowing that You loved her even before she loved You. Allow her heart to accept that Christ died for her sins.
May you rest in the arms of the Lord who formed you from the dust of the earth. May holy Mary, the angels, and all the saints welcome you now that you have gone forth from this life. May Christ who was crucified for you, bring you freedom and peace. May Christ who died for you admit you into his garden of paradise.
I pray they turn to you for direction and forgiveness and see how much they have hurt me. Please give me eyes to see them from your perspective, and a heart to want to forgive. I ask for patience while you work your will and to show me how to be the loving Christian you have called me to be.”
When a person dies his soul goes to either heaven or hell. There is no second chance after death . The Bible tells us, “Man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment” (Hebrew 9:27, see also Luke 16:19-31). It would do no good to pray for someone who has died .
Salvation is made possible by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, which in the context of salvation is referred to as the “atonement”. Christian soteriology ranges from exclusive salvation to universal reconciliation concepts.

+ Romans 10:9-10 “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved . For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved .”
The last rites , in Catholicism, are the last prayers and ministrations given to an individual of the faith, when possible, shortly before death. They may be administered to those awaiting execution, mortally injured, or terminally ill. Last rites cannot be performed on people who have already died.
I hope they will encourage you to make 2021 a year of prayer . Know to whom you are speaking. Thank him. Ask for God’s will. Say what you need. Ask for forgiveness. Pray with a friend. Pray the Word. Memorize Scripture.
God, we thank you that you never leave us, that you never forsake us, but you love us. We trust you, and pray this in your name. Amen.”
