prayers for non-christian dead
I know that, in the Syriac Orthodox Church, we do pray for the non-Christian dead. I pray for the repose of my soul of my departed father, who was a non-believer, and the Church has told me that this is correct, and that my prayers are joined with the prayers offered up for our faithful departed.

It makes sense, really, since we're told to prayer for our enemies, let alone our departed, loving family!
