Prayer has tremendous influence. Mahatma Gandhiji was a great votary of prayer. If the prayer is sincere and if it proceeds from the bottom of your heart, it will at once melt the heart of the Lord. Lord Krishna had to run bare-footed from Dwaraka on hearing the heartfelt prayer of Draupadi.

Lord Hari, the mighty ruler of this Universe apologised to Prahlad for coming a little late when the latter prayed. How merciful and loving is the Lord! Do not argue about the efficacy of prayer. You will be deluded. There is no arguing in spiritual matters. Intellect is a finite and frail instrument. Remove now the darkness of your ignorance. You will enjoy the unalloyed bliss of prayer.

(pg.22, Sermonettes of Swami Sivananda)
