We take praying for one another seriously. We all need to be prayed for. This life is tough. We were not meant to do it alone. Bearing one another’s burdens- sympathizing with each other in our weaknesses, grievances and trials is a worthy act of selflessness. Galatians 6:2, Bear one another’s burden and so fulfill the law of Christ. “Here the apostle alludes to the custom of travelers, who when they are heavily laden with their baggage or weak and fatigued, someone comes along side to offer relief.” (Benson Commentary) There is great compassion in the act of prayer.
