You Can’t “Pray” Anyone Else Into Heaven

You Can't "Pray" Anyone Else Into Heaven - Woe Is Gie
You Can’t “Pray” Anyone Else Into Heaven – Woe Is Gie

You can’t “pray” anyone else into Heaven. We can pray for others that they receive salvation, but they have to do this on their own with their own prayers to God.

We don’t even know our own eternal destination. It’s God’s desire that we all go to Heaven and live with Him in eternity, but the reality is that most of us won’t make it. None of us deserve Heaven. We deserve hell because of our sinful nature.

If They Are Dead

If a person is already dead, there’s nothing anyone can do to save their soul. You can’t pray them into Heaven and if they never repented and accepted Jesus as their savior, they’re going to hell.

If They Are Still Alive

If someone is alive and wants to go to Heaven, they need to do a few things. If they’re special to you, and you’d like to see them in Heaven, assuming you go yourself, there are a few things they’re required to do:

  • Repent – admit they’re a sinner and ask for forgiveness
  • Admit that Jesus died for their sins and rose again
  • Ask Him to have a relationship with you
  • Obey The Ten Commandments


There is no such term as purgatory in The Bible.

Purgatory is a concept primarily associated with certain branches of Christianity, particularly Catholicism. It is believed to be a temporary state or place where souls undergo purification before entering into the fullness of heaven. According to Catholic doctrine, it is a place where the souls of those who have died in a state of grace, but who still require purification due to remaining venial sins or the temporal punishment for forgiven mortal sins, are cleansed.

The idea of purgatory is based on the belief that not all souls are immediately ready for the perfect holiness and divine presence of heaven. Purgatory is seen as a means of purging the soul of any remaining attachments to sin or imperfections, allowing it to be fully united with God. It is believed that the souls in purgatory can be assisted by the prayers and good works of the living, who can help alleviate their suffering and expedite their journey to heaven.

The specific nature of purgatory is not extensively described in Christian scripture, and there are variations in beliefs about its exact nature and duration among different Christian denominations. While the concept of purgatory is primarily associated with Catholicism, some other Christian traditions, such as Eastern Orthodox Christianity, also have similar beliefs in a process of purification after death.

Christ & The Spirit Make Intercessions For Us

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.

Romans 8:26

It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Romans 8:34
