    Ours prayers are to our Heavenly Father God, our Creator. But prayers to the dead or as you call it “the other side” is not possible as the dead are dead, unconscious.

    Have you noticed why through “mediums” is the only way to get in touch with what they call your loved ones? It reality what they are doing is contacting demons.

    God condemns all types of practices that deal with the occult:

    Deuteronomy 18:10-11:


    There should not be found in you...

    anyone who employs divination,

    anyone practicing magic,

    anyone who looks for omens,

    a sorcerer,


    anyone binding others with a spell, anyone who consults a spirit medium

    or a fortune-teller,

    or anyone who inquires of the dead.”

    Prayers to the dead are defined as Necromancing, and communicating with the dead. They are in the grace awaiting the resurrection for the Day of Judgment, and neither in heaven, nor in hell. The dead have nothing to offer us. Praying to God is seeking Him for ourselves, or interceding for others. God loves for us to seek Him. He has everything to offer us.
