Jesus prayed for me.

“I do not pray only for them. I pray also for those who will believe in me because of their message. Father, I pray that all of them will be one, just as you are in me and I am in you. I want them also to be in us. Then the world will believe that you have sent me.” (John‬ 17:20-21)
Jesus my Lord and my Savior, my God and my Deliverer, prayed for me. I thank God for that.
The Holy Spirit prays for me. Thank God for that because most of the time not only that I do not know what to pray for, I don’t even know what to think. Not only that I feel puzzled at times, I don’t know what pieces are missing, if there are any, I dont even know what the pieces should look like, and I don’t even know what the final picture should look like. 
Having the Holy Spirit praying for me is very comforting because most of the time even I do not know what I need.
“In the same way, the Holy Spirit helps us when we are weak. We don’t know what we should pray for. But the Spirit himself prays for us. He prays with groans too deep for words. God, who looks into our hearts, knows the mind of the Spirit. And the Spirit prays for God’s people just as God wants him to pray.” (Romans 8:26-27)
If anyone ever ask you to pray for them, it doesn’t mean to pray “over” them. It simply means to pray as if he was praying, knowing that you have an idea of what his needs may be especially in the given situation, knowing that you too are not immune to the pains this person is sufferring.
“That’s why we have not stopped praying for you. We have been praying for you since the day we heard about you. We have been asking God to fill you with the knowledge of what he wants. We pray that he will give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. We pray that you will lead a life that is worthy of the Lord. We pray that you will please him in every way. So we want you to bear fruit in every good thing you do. We want you to grow to know God better. We want you to be very strong, in keeping with his glorious power. We want you to be patient. Never give up. Be joyful as you give thanks to the Father. He has made you fit to share with all his people. You will all receive a share in the kingdom of light. He has saved us from the kingdom of darkness. He has brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. Because of what the Son has done, we have been set free. Because of him, all of our sins have been forgiven.” (Colossians 1:9-14)
“Pray also for me. Pray that when I open my mouth, the right words will be given to me. Then I can be bold as I tell the mystery of the good news. Because of the good news, I am being held by chains as the Lord’s messenger. So pray that I will be bold as I preach the good news. That’s what I should do.” (Ephesians 6:19-20)
“Brothers and sisters, pray for us.” (1 Thessalonians‬ 5:25)
“Brothers and sisters, I am asking you through the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. Pray for me with the love the Holy Spirit provides. Pray that I will be saved from those in Judea who do not believe. Pray that my work in Jerusalem will be accepted by God’s people there. Then, as God has planned, I will come to you with joy. Together we will be renewed. May the God who gives peace be with you all. Amen.” (‭Romans‬ 15:30-33)
“Spend a lot of time in prayer. Always be watchful and thankful. Pray for us too. Pray that God will open a door for our message. Then we can preach the mystery of Christ. Because I preached it, I am being held by chains. Pray that I will preach it clearly, as I should.” (Colossians‬ 4:2-4)
Thank you, Lord. Amen.
