We ought in prayer to ask for those things which we ought to desire. But we ought to desire good things not for ourselves only but also for others, for this belongs to that charity which we ought to exercise towards our neighbor. Hence charity demands that we pray for others. In accordance with this S. Chrysostom says "Necessity compels us to pray for ourselves, fraternal charity urges us to pray for others. But that prayer is more pleasing before God which arises not so much from our neeeds as from the demands of fraternal charity."
