Praying for others is a significant privilege and responsibility for Christians and those in many other faith traditions. The Bible teaches us to "So confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great effectiveness." (James 5:16, NET) It reminds me of Abraham pleading with God on behalf of Lot, Jesus praying for those who nailed him to the cross, the four friends who brought their friend to Jesus for healing. In traditional language these prayers might be called prayers of petition or supplication. They can be as simple as "God Bless..." or "Please help...." God may give you much more to say.
