The Bible is full of examples of people praying for others. We are going to follow their example to pray for people in our lives. As 1 Timothy 2:1 (CEV) says: First of all, I ask you to pray for everyone. Ask God to help and bless them all, and tell God how thankful you are for each of them.
Pray for us. We have no doubts about what we’re doing or why, but it’s hard going and we need your prayers. Hebrews 13:19 MSG

- For relief from a situation that is difficult to understand or enjoy.
Thank God for one thing concerning this person and his/her work.
