    Matt! Thank you so much! You have no idea how it means so much to me. Can’t say much here, maybe next time! But thanks from the bottom of my heart, pal. God bless you and your family.

    5. The Bible does not teach that we will lose the duty or ability to pray for one another at any point (including after death). No Scripture verse supports the notion that we can no longer pray for one another once we die and go to heaven.

    Ecclesiastes 9English Standard Version (ESV)
    Death Comes to All
    9 But all this I laid to heart, examining it all, how the righteous and the wise and their deeds are in the hand of God. Whether it is love or hate, man does not know; both are before him. 2 It is the same for all, since the same event happens to the righteous and the wicked, to the good and the evil,[a] to the clean and the unclean, to him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As the good one is, so is the sinner, and he who swears is as he who shuns an oath. 3 This is an evil in all that is done under the sun, that the same event happens to all. Also, the hearts of the children of man are full of evil, and madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead. 4 But he who is joined with all the living has hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion. 5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. 6 Their love and their hate and their envy have already perished, and forever they have no more share in all that is done under the sun.

    Job 14:
    18 “But the mountain falls and crumbles away,
    and the rock is removed from its place;
    19 the waters wear away the stones;
    the torrents wash away the soil of the earth;
    so you destroy the hope of man.
    20 You prevail forever against him, and he passes;
    you change his countenance, and send him away.
    21 His sons come to honor, and he does not know it;
    they are brought low, and he perceives it not.
    22 He feels only the pain of his own body,
    and he mourns only for himself.”

    Psalm 30
    8 To you, O Lord, I cry,
    and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
    9 “What profit is there in my death,[d]
    if I go down to the pit?[e]
    Will the dust praise you?
    Will it tell of your faithfulness?
    10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
    O Lord, be my helper!”

    Isaiah 38:
    16 O Lord, by these things men live,
    and in all these is the life of my spirit.
    Oh restore me to health and make me live!
    17 Behold, it was for my welfare
    that I had great bitterness;
    but in love you have delivered my life
    from the pit of destruction,
    for you have cast all my sins
    behind your back.
    18 For Sheol does not thank you;
    death does not praise you;
    those who go down to the pit do not hope
    for your faithfulness.
    19 The living, the living, he thanks you,
    as I do this day;
    the father makes known to the children
    your faithfulness.
