It has always facinated me to see people praying, and this happens usually at Catholic Adoration Chapels anywhere. To pray is to recognize one's limitations right away, and so it is an act of humility.
One prays because the person is aware that he or she cannot do it alone, or knows that things have gone beyond one's capacity.
Or one prays because he or she is happy and wants to thank God and glorify Him.
Yet another may pray because someone has asked him or her for prayers. Now when a person prays for someone, it is that the person hopes something good will happen to that someone ---be it landing a job that he or she needs, or getting well from an illness, or undoing oneself from a bind ---in any case, it is a prayer for that someone's well being.
Now whenever the person does so, the Lord Who lies in wait to hear His children, is delighted at this act of unselfishness. And He takes delight in the person the more.
In truth, whenever we pray for others, we actually 'pray' for ourselves.
May the Lord be praised forever!
