Is Anyone Praying?

One evening recently I was having some side effects to medication that was making me quite ill. I had been praying throughout the evening for God to get me through, and I was struck with the thought - "Is anyone else praying for me?" I didn't know the answer to that question, and it was an empty, lonely feeling.
I thought of how much these words mean:
"I'm praying for you!"
Not done as a reflex, but with meaning and concern.
I did have people praying specifically for me today, and what a difference it makes!!
The challenge to me is - am I praying for others? Do they know I'm praying?
