Pray to Your Heavenly Father

Regardless on what men, or a pope, or a church is teaching, True Believers do not pray to dead people nor to angels.

Dead people do not know anything, they have no memory, and they are unable to come back to earth as spirit.  Thus, dead people do not hear our prayers.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 ... For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Isaiah 26:14 ... They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.

Luke 16:26 ... And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Saul died because he consulted a medium to pray to the dead.

1 Chronicles 10:13-14 ... So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; And enquired not of the Lord: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.

Communication with dead people is absolutely condemned by the Word of God. It does not matter if those who died were good people or bad people, holy people or evil people.  Communication (praying, consulting etc.) with dead people  is FORBIDDEN by God.

Deuteronomy 18:9-12 ... When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 

Isaiah 19:3 ... And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. 

Prayer is an act of worship.  Angels are fellow-servants and they reject our worship.  Thus, Angels also reject our prayers.

Psalm 95:6 ... O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. 

Psalm 100:4 ...  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Psalm 132:7 ... We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

Revelation 22:8-9 ... And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Praying to anyone other than Almighty God is unbiblical.  Christ never prayed to anyone but the Father. Almighty God is the only source that provides answered prayer; blessings, sanctification, glorification, and preservation of the saints.

1 John 5:14-15 ...  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Neither angels nor any other created being is ever depicted as an intercessor with God the Father. Only the Son and the Holy Spirit can intercede before the Father’s throne.

Romans 8:26 ... Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Hebrews 4:15-16 ... For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

1 Timothy 2:5 ... For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

When Believers pray, we pray directly to Abba Father, in Jesus name.


Jeremiah 33:3 ... Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3

Matthew 6:6 ... But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 

Matthew 6:8-9 ... Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 

John 15:16 ... Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 

John 16:26 ... And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  ♥
