Is it biblical to pray for someone else to have wisdom?

I know that James 1:5-6 tells us that if we lack wisdom we should ask God, and He will give generously without reproach. Is there any scripture that tells us to also pray for others (such as spouses, pastors, leaders, etc.) to have wisdom? 

James 1:5 - 6

KJV - 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
