There is a faith in every religion that God is one and we dont discriminate among Gods really when we have to pray..!..
Prayer is a connection we make with that supreme power whom we better know as God to tell our mind and heart out . Its a procedure where all the faith and belief is put at work and its only this energy that makes our prayer work into reality.
If we believe that God is there somewhere and he will listen to us, then, He does listen. Under that context, everything has its time and things work in steps even in a miracle.One must only trust his/her faith and wait for that guiding light to show the way ..!
