“Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:” 1 Samuel 12:23
E.M. Bounds commented that “Prayer was no strange exercise to Samuel.”. Indeed he knew how to pray well from his much practice. From the passage quoted he it is apparent that Samuel believed not to pray for the people would have been a sin against the LORD. The people were sometimes disrespectful and hurtful to Samuel, but Samuel was always faithful to pray for them.
May we be so faithful to pray, and to pray for others that we would never think of not praying. -PB
