Is prayer allowed for unbaptized dead?

 

- Father, they often ask this question: a relative has died, I would like to pray for him, but we don’t know if he was baptized, and if he was baptized, then in the Orthodox Church or not? And in fact, it was so long ago that there was no one to ask. But I really want him to be prayed for in the altar, so that a bit of it could be taken out. What to do in this situation? Is prayer for the unbaptized allowed?
- I answer such questions: because of my appearance and the fact that I have been interested in Chinese poetry since childhood, I want to be a Chinese emperor. But first, I do not know Chinese. How will I manage almost two billion people? Secondly, nobody called me there. They have their own life there.
Therefore, it is not necessary to fulfill any desire of a person: he wanted to, and he should be immediately executed immediately. There are certain church rules that are irresistible. So pray - please, no problem! You open a prayer book, read a prayer, pray for a given person - this is completely resolved.
But church prayer is possible only for the people of the Church.We commemorate those people who are not in the Church, we pray "for the peace of the whole world," "for power and the army." Are all Christians in power and army? Not. But we commemorate them. But do not call by name. Because the name of the baptized person is the name that is written in heaven. The name of the unbaptized is not written, he does not have a name in the field of church use. thereforeprayer for unbaptizedin the church is excluded. At home prayer - please! The holy church blesses praying for bees and for flocks.
Some people ask: “My cat has fallen ill, can I pray to God for my cat?” And why not? But at home prayer, because we don’t have a ruling on the illness of cats in the Church, we can do without it. And at home to call upon the name of God, that the Lord, with his grace, help the cat heal - what is wrong with that? Nothing! The man has always pitied the smaller brothers. But it is not necessary to pull up the church liturgy for your love for pets, it is somehow naive, unwise and even bold.The Prayer of the Unbaptizedonly relevant outside the temple.
