THE "ing" form of the Verb is used  to express or do ( doing/ action ) words.

a concrete action  comon in spoken & writing Language  that expresses or describing the action

is taking place  "now " called present tense.

It's because of the preposition 'for'.


I can give you a very simple rule here: With the exception of 'to', the verb which follows all prepositions is always in the gerund form.

If you write a verb after a preposition you should use +ing, except with infinitives (to be, to read, to speak...).In these cases, it's not necessary.
