In the Catholic tradition, a nine-day novena (prayer) is held every evening after the Holy Mass and a celebration is held on the deceased's 40th day as this is believed to be the day he/she ascends into heaven. Among Born-again Christians the 9 day and 40 day prayers and celebrations are dispensed with.

Yeah they do a 9 day prayer after the funeral, what I’ve been told is to guide the soul to the afterlife

Sorry Rich, just saw this. Izzy is right. The belief is that it takes 9 days for the gates of heaven to open for the deceased. My family doesn’t do this but my wife’s family in Mexico still does this.
