The only thing I can figure that this would be for, is if you are writing out a prayer for someone else to be added to their list. So if you are asking for prayer for Aunt Martha's breast cancer.... do you have her permission to add her to the prayer list.

But other than that, yes, I pray for people all the time, day in and day out, and never ask them if I can pray for them. But if I see someone in distress.... or who is telling me their troubles, I would ask them for permission to pray outloud with them then and there, because I would be bringing them into that conversation with the Lord and I. The difference is I can talk to my Lord at any and all times about anything... but when I invite a third person into the conversation... I need to ask their permission. Sort of like, if I were talking to a professional helper of some kind, say a counselor... and see someone with a need, I would ask them if they would like to share their need with the professional.
