praying for the dead is it a futile effort?

#1
praying for the dead especially during funeral service is very common and Hebrew 9vs 27 says everyone has to die once and then face the consequences.
so if their fate is sealed already why do we still pray for them ?

besides will God answers such prayer?

Prayers should go to the family. For God to grant them the heart to bear their loss.
Prayer after death cannot make the dead go to heaven or hell.

As a catholic which I am, you pray for his soul immiediately before death or if after death, you pray for his soul to find peace.

Praying for the dead is not only a futile effort but fool's errand. Even the church is now aware of this.

Almost all the churches have their funeral programmes, in most of these programs prayers for the departed is always there. Let this be known to all, the dead is late and there is nothing one can do to change anything about them. It's late to pray for them, it's late to talk to them, it's late teach them, everything about them is LATE.

Church should stop praying for the dead and face the living, that's the people that need the prayer. As per God accepting the souls of the departed there is no amount of prayers that can change it, where they will be is determined by how he or she loved his or her. This is me religiously speaking.
Thanks.
