Are people in Heaven praying for people on earth?
"The answer is possibly yes- at least sometimes.
Jesus, who is both God and man, is in Heaven praying for people on Earth ( Romans 8:38). So there's at least one human being who has died and gone to Heaven and is now praying for those on Earth. But it appears he may not be the only one praying. The martyrs, who died for their faith, are in Heaven praying for God's justice on the earth (Revelation 6:9-10). These prayers will affect Christians who are mistreated because of their faith in Jesus. ( Many are in prison around the world. )
The Bible doesn't specifically say whether the rest of the people in Heaven are praying about what's happening on Earth. But since prayer is simple talking to God, this suggests that we'll pray more in Heaven than we do now-not less."
