Prayers for the Dead: Regaining What We Have Lost Within Lutheranism

Candles and Incense (610x351)This is a paper our pastor presented at the Springfield Circuit winkel of the Missouri District on January 15th, 2013.  In it, he looked at prayers for those who have died in the faith (referred to simply as “the dead”) from a scriptural, confessional, and historical perspective.  He also explored what we lost when we stopped praying for those now in heaven.
