 “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers,
 intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—  for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,  who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,“  
-1 Timothy 2:1-5

Prayer is something that we should share with our spiritual companions.  As we journey in our faith with our soul friends, we need to share the experience of prayer with those individuals.  We should not stray away from praying with others in a very interactive manner. 

Never underestimate the importance of the bond of sharing prayer with those who you consider to be your spiritual friends.  As you bare your souls together before the Lord in prayer you will feel a great closeness to the Lord and you will feel a spiritual kinship with those with whom you are praying.  This dimension of a relationship with a spiritual friend cannot happen if we cannot share the experience of open and honest prayer with other people.
