Bonjour Aashpreet,

https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/questions/view/hi-can-we-only-use-pour-infinitive-in-the-present-time-if-an-action-is-not-happened-yet

The above link, found from a simple search for previous questions; may augment your understanding of the usage of the preposition pour.

Hope this will be helpful.

Bonne continuation

Jim

This is not what I am asking Jim! You have cited a completely unrelated response.

- Je lui écris une lettre.   -  Ecrire à   - Here, Indirect Object Pronoun  - 'lui' is introduced by the preposition à.

- Je leur ai parlé hier.   -  Parler à  - Here too, the Indirect Object Pronoun - 'leur' is introduced by the preposition à.

Now, the Kwiziq link in my question says that  - an Indirect Object Pronoun can also be introduced by the preposition 'pour'! (exact line from the link cited below) I have requested some examples for this scenario!! Please share. :-) 

Citation - "An indirect object pronoun usually replaces people (or other living things) that are introduced after the verb with a preposition (usually à or pour)."
