    The good Samaritan story should be every Christian's motto, whether it's money advice or prayer or just a good deed for a total stranger as well as everyone  NO  favorites allowed!!

    Yes when I focus on them for a moment; my best intentional thought for their lives is projected and the Universe captures it for their benefit even if it is faster than my vocal prayer response, my mental and emotional work as a prayer and as long as their thoughts and prayers are in harmony my prayer works with theirs and they get their needs or wants or whatever met.

    Why not.. seeing that this world is a fallen one, I'm feeling an urgency to pray for them  smile) what man needs is not a good leader or a stable economy but a God who will save him from all this mess. Prayers are powerful :-)

    Yes, I do pray for strangers everyday.

    Whenever I see someone doing good deed and service, I pray for their long life, so that the world will have some great souls like them.

    Whenever I see some suffering people, I beg and pray GOD to show them a way and help them.

    My heart breaks and I virtually hold the legs of GOD and pray, when I see infants, kids and old people suffering, crying for food, begging for help.

    Yes, frequently.  Especially people who are angry or mean; they need help the most.

    Yes, quite often. For example, I have seen amputees who had suffered tremendous injuries and who I knew that life had to be a hardship for them to endure. I've seen people at homeless shelters and thanked the Lord that they had a roof over their head and a meal to eat that day. At present, near my home, there is a ten year old girl who is a cancer survivor (she lost a leg because of the cancer and is hard of hearing) who has gone missing in the last month and the outlook of finding her alive is remote. PRAY FOR HER!  Also, when I'm able, I try to support financially ministries and charities that feed, clothe, clean, shelter, teach, attempt to heal, etc., people who are suffering.

    Yes I do all the time. I am a truck driver and I see accidents on the highway all the time and I pray for the people involved. If there is someone who seems to need a prayer for whatever reason I will pray for them.

    Yes.. I agree with all who have answered the question before me. I will also pray general prayer for all of us.  I often pray for people in the service industry...because I know they have to deal with many personalities and must deal with difficult situations when they themselves may be dealing with issues.  Right now people are hurting for all sorts of reasons and prayer seems, to me, the only way I can not worry about things I cannot change.  It takes a village to do more than raise children.

    I do...

    Many times I'm moved to pray for others for obvious reasons...sometimes for less obvious reasons.
