It is not our quickly rattled off prayers that make God respond, it is our faith. Prayer is a process of asking and receiving.
Why ask for something that is already given? Most times, people do believe and trust the Lord, they have just taken their eyes off Him.
Praying for them, refocuses their faith. Pray over the phone, pray in the street.
Pray in parking lots. Anywhere is an opportunity to pray , especially when you are confronted by a need. When people send you a message to pray for them, stop what you are doing and start to pray, let them know you are praying.
I have been working hard at this and the hardest part is to get over your fear of being looked at or people thinking you are weird. My fear is based on me and not the person who needs prayer.

Selling everything means detaching from all that is holding us back from, and getting in the way of, our search for our treasure, God. I rushed headlong — I, misshapen.
This is why we have reduced entire books down to a simplified template which can easily guide you in prayer. Indiana Jones' perilous crusade consisted of narrow escapes from rats, fire, gunmen, and a ship's propeller. So what is your treasure? God has made His secrets known to the world. Entering the Sanctuary. Prayer to all souls.
You were within me, but I was not with you.
