Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

How Should We Pray For Those Near the End of Life?

host Adriel Sanchez aired April 28, 2021

Episode 694 Show Notes 

From the Show

There is a difference between praying that someone would die and praying for someone because you don’t want to see them continue to suffer. Death is not the same for everyone. For the believer, death has been transformed. In John 11, Jesus told Mary and Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.”

Questions in this Episode

  1. Are there varying rewards in heaven for believers in heaven?
  2. Can Christians cast out demons using “Jesus’s name”?
  3. How does the Spirit help us preach the gospel?
  4. I work at an assisted living nursing home and what I see most are people suffering and dying and when I see someone in a terrible condition who is bedridden, I pray for them to die peacefully. I wonder if it’s wrong to pray that?
  5. What do you think of sounds of affirmation in prayer groups?
