      """"Would you expect 'prayer' to have the desired effect even without earning that right?""""

      We can earn nothing of God's will Seoc. God gives as gifts.
      HE gave His Son Jesus.

      """"Is you god your servant?
      Would prayer asking favours be selfish?""""

      Thou shalt not tempt the LORD thy God. That's the answer Seoc.

      """"Would you explain your idea of prayer - for example, is an American prayer more potent that a Muslim prayer? Muslims do seem mindful of their god several times each day and not just when wanting some favour.""""

      When Hagar prayed to God to spare the life of son Ishmael (The first Arab) from thirst in the desert, God replied by creating a fountain of water where they were.

      """"How can the quality/ potency/ value of different prayers be assessed?""""

      God discerns the heart and intent of the prayer.

      """"Where do Jewish prayers rate in the pecking order? Or Canadian prayers?""""

      There is no pecking order. God discerns the heart and intent of the prayer.
