PREPOSITIONS. For after "am"

For is sometimes ready for, fit for. (See 405.) “He is for no gallants' company without them.” B. J. E. in &c. i. 1.

“Your store is not for idle markets.

Compare our "I am for (going to) Paris."

Some ellipsis, as "I pray," must be understood in

“(I pray) God for his mercy.
